Kids are dirty.  There, I said it.  Little did I know when Princess Nagger was born I’d end up dealing with lots of dirt and grime. She isn’t fazed by dirt, and I’m learning new tricks every day on trying to make sure the stains are able to be eliminated from just about everything.  When Little Dude arrived on the scene, I had a feeling I was now looking at double-trouble in the dirt department.  I was right.

This time of year is when I pull out all the stops getting ready for any guests over the holidays – I switch out linens and table cloths for Christmas-y ones, it’s the only time of year I end up putting festive doilies on side tables, and after being stored away since last Christmas, they tend to be a little dingy looking from rogue dust particles.  

And of course between making sure all those are laundered to their ‘guest-ready’ appearance, there’s juggling my dirt-digging adventurous kids’ clothing to make sure they’re ‘presentable’ for company as well.  Ahem.

Enter Arm & Hammer Ultra Power 4x Laundry Detergent:


I was a little skeptical about using half the amount that I’m used to using with my other detergent, but decided to throw skepticism to the wind and give it a try.  I was very  impressed with how clean everything came out!  The dinginess was gone, and everything was sparkly clean and bright.  I’m sold.

Arm & Hammer’s Ultra Power 4X concentrated laundry detergent contains powerful stain fighters and two scoops of baking soda to give you fresh, clean clothes. The small, conveniently shaped bottle delivers more washes per load than 2X concentrated detergents.

I can get through this hectic holiday season with confidence that while decking the halls, things will be bright, clean, and smell fresh.

How do you prep for decking the halls?
