Review: OxiClean Max Force Gel Stick & Power Paks

Recently, I had the chance to review the OxiClean Spray-A-Way Instant Stain Remover and was extremely pleased with the results. For this reason, I could not turn down the chance to try two new OxiClean products . . . the Max Force Gel Stick Pre-Treater and the Max Force Power Paks. Finding a piece of laundry to test out the stain removing power of these products was not difficult in my house.

Look what I found when I was folding a basket of clean laundry the other day! These were the pants our 6yr old son was wearing last week when he threw up his breakfast and had to stay home from school. Yes, you read correctly. These pants were in with the clean laundry. My husband had already put them through the wash once. There were two large stains . . . one on the upper thigh area and one on the right leg near the hem.

As you can see from the comparison photos, the OxiClean products did an excellent job getting these stains out. All I had to do was rub the Max Force Gel Stick Pre-Treater directly onto the stains and let it sit for about ten minutes. Then we threw the pants in with our pending dark load of dirty laundry along with one OxiClean Max Force Power Pak. It could not have been easier.

The instructions said to wash the clothes in the hottest temperature the clothing's washing instructions allow. We actually wash everything in cold generally because it keeps the clothes looking nicer, it prevents shrinking and fading, and it also saves on energy. My point is that the stains came out 100% with using these OxiClean products even though we washed these pants in cold water.

Look for these two new OxiClean Max Force stain removing products to appear at your local retailer of household and laundry products soon.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of OxiClean and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
