“Laundry is my least favorite household chore.”
There I said it. The first step is admitting it, right?
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Lysol®. The opinions and text are all mine.
I have absolutely no problem washing the laundry. It’s the folding and putting away process that I’m not a fan of. My two little girls have so many teeny tiny little articles of clothing that make the folding and putting away process a nightmare. And then there’s the towels, sheets, my delicate clothing, and my husband’s clothes — which is a story in and of itself.
If you’ve been following The Naptime Reviewer for a while, you have probably seen me mention that my husband is a cyclist. He races road bikes and is currently in the beginning of cyclo-cross season. If you aren’t familiar with cyclo-cross, it’s sort of a cross between mountain bikes and road bikes and can involve terrain like grass, dirt, road, water, mud, etc. His clothes can get pretty nasty, and washing the delicate fabrics can be a challenge.
My husband also works as a Land Surveyor, which means he’s outdoors getting mixed up in the (sometimes wild) terrain of California. Needless to say, between his hobby and career, his clothes can get pretty dirty, stinky and unsanitary, making doing his laundry tricky. He literally comes home from work with animal urine, paint, tar, grass stains, ticks, stickers (from weeds), and many other unknown germs on his clothes. He has always been great about keeping his dirty laundry separate from the rest of the family’s laundry, but I have always felt like his clothes never really get as clean as they need to be. We typically wash his laundry on warm or hot, which helps with the stains, but the odors, no matter how many fragranced products we use, never really seem to go away.
Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer
Lysol is a brand that I know and trust, and have used for years, so I knew I had to try Lysol Laundry Sanitizer. Since using it, I have noticed a significant improvement with my husband’s sports clothing, work clothing, and even our household towels and bedsheets. It’s even great for the kids’ play clothes, swimsuits, pool towels, pet bedding, dish towels that have mildewed, and sports bags.
How to Sanitize Dirty Clothes
Did you know that detergent alone does not kill all bacteria in your laundry? Dirty laundry can contain bacteria that can cause illness and create lingering bad smells, so it’s important to completely sanitize dirty clothes the right way. I found Lysol Laundry Sanitizer at Target in the laundry aisle and it is a special additive that helps eliminate 99.9% of bacteria in laundry (when used as directed during the rinse cycle). It doesn’t contain any chlorine bleach, so it’s safe to use on most fabrics including whites, colors and darks – and works great on Lycra cycling kits and dirty work clothes.
If you are looking for a way to sanitize dirty clothes, I highly recommend you check out Lysol Laundry Sanitizer at your local Target store. Whether it’s sports clothes, princess dresses, pet blankets, bedding, workout clothes or anything else, this product will give you peace of mind in knowing that you have eliminated the bacteria and odor that was lingering on those items. With cold and flu season coming up, and the recent Hepatitis A breakouts I’ve been hearing about, you really can’t go wrong with this product.
