Shout Unstructured Play

Here we are: smack in the middle of summer. Sunshine, warm weather, playing outside. Kids love it. Sometimes mom's don't. Because we all know that kid's playing outside mean messes. Since it's so important for kids to still be outside and play and have fun, Shout is here to help. Now you can embrace the stains with the help of Shout.

The product: Shout has many great products to help you battle those bad stains from your kids (or husband or if you're like me, your own). The Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Brush combines powerful Shout stain fighters in a thick gel formula with a convenient stain-lifting brush to penetrate and remove your toughest stains. The Shout Wipes are made perfect for on-the-go, so you can take care of stains when they happen. The Shout Triple Acting Formula is in a bottle with a trigger, so you can spray stains to break them up before you wash the clothing. The Shout Color Catcher makes doing laundry a little easier. No you can combine colors in a load of wash and this sheet absorbs and traps the dyes that bleed from clothing, so it won't get on your other clothes. Shout has a little of everything to help you keep stains off your clothes in this messy summertime or all year round.

What I thought:
As a stay at home mom, I do plenty of laundry. It's rare, though it does occasionally happen, that my husband helps. So this is one chore that falls purely on me. It's tough to keep up with laundry day to day, plus treat stains. Matt is pretty good about letting me know when he gets something on his clothes, so I can use the Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Brush to treat it right away. Then it can sit for a little while if I'm not doing a load of his clothing right away. This always seems to do the trick and get all the stains out.

My son, Zachariah, however, almost never tells me about stains. (He probably doesn't even notice them.) So as I'm putting his clothes into the washing machine, I have to keep an eye out for stains. Sometimes things have sat for a while, but I spray the Shout Triple Acting Formula on his shirts/pants where there are stains. Then they go straight into the washer. This takes food stains out of his shirts, grass stains out of his pants, and more. I think it's a great product, and it's something that I use all the time.

The Shout Color Catcher was new to me. I really like the idea that I can do a small load of mixed colors and keep them safe. This is especially handy when I'm washing brand new clothes. Instead of worrying about them ruining my clothes or having to do another small load on it's own, I can throw in the Shout Color Catcher to help catch any stray dyes in the washing machine. I think this will be one I'll use often.

Last but not least was the Shout Wipes. I've been using these for years. They are handy to keep in my purse when someone spills something on a shirt. They are great to pack when you're away, so you can get a handle on those stains before you can wash. I think they are great for everyone to have around. It makes laundry time so much easier as do all of the other Shout products I've used.
