Clay is a sprinkler-fitter in his every day job. You know the fire safety systems/sprinklers in buildings? He installs those as well as fire hydrants and other fire safety systems. What most people don’t realize is that there is a LOT of hard work behind those installations! Clay works his hiney off carrying heavy pipe up ladders to install it, messing with nasty, old, sprinkler water when doing system repairs, getting covered in heavy duty glue, grease, dust etc. His work clothes (and his skin) come home nasty! I’m going to be trying Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator on his work clothes to see if I can get them looking better and remove some of the stains.
We are blog ambassadors for Biz, because we trust the product and know it works. We are teaming up with Biz with complimentary samples and compensation to show you tips and tricks for cleaner laundry. All opinions are our own and have been formed after personally testing the products.
This is a photo of one of Clay’s work shirts from today.
See how nasty and blackened it is after a day’s work? With my detergent, alone, most of that will not come out. It will take some pretty heavy duty stain fighting to get it clean. You may be asking yourself, why go through so much trouble if it’s just going to get nasty again, right? Well, he still has to look somewhat professional. These guys represent a business and want to look as good as they can. And that means as clean clothes as possible.
So, I try my best to send him off in clothes that, while stained, still look decent.
For the grease and pipe gunk I’m going to use Biz along with my homemade laundry detergent.
I’ve found that my homemade detergent works better on his work clothes to clean them. Instead of treating individual stains, I pre-treat an entire load at once. There’s too much to do individually. So, I load the washer with water, 1/4 cup homemade laundry detergent, and will not be adding a 1/2 cap full of Biz. I’ll let it soak about an hour, then wash and dry.
For our regular clothing, I do use it on individual stains by adding just a little to the stain, rubbing it in and letting it sit about 10 minutes before washing. I also add a 1/3 cup to the washer with the detergent. It works great! So I’m hoping it will do the trick for his work clothes.
Biz smells really good too. It has a nice, clean, fresh scent that makes our laundry smell so nice. It has more stain fighting ingredients than other brands so it gets in there and busts up the stains. And it does not contain any bleach or phosphates!
Biz Stain & Odor Eliminator is available in these forms:
- Liquid Booster Pacs
- On The Go Pen
The Booster Pacs and On the Go Pen will be perfect for when we are traveling. I plan on keeping them in our box that contains laundry items, dish soap, etc. So far, I’ve only tried the liquid and have had a lot of success with it! It cleans up to 80% better than detergent alone and has stood up to every type of stain I’ve thrown at it. So I add 1/3 cap to every load of laundry I do!
I have more posts with laundry tips and tricks, using Biz products, coming in a couple months.
I’ll also have the results from Clay’s work clothes for you in a couple days… so, stay tuned!
