Leading a sustainable lifestyle can sometimes be intimidating. It can involve overhauling your diet, rethinking your commute, learning how to compost and doing research before making everyday purchases. The good news is that it doesn’t always take so much effort. Reviving an old couch or piece of clothing by removing stains and freshening it up can make a huge difference. By saving items, you’re not contributing to already-overburdened landfills and you're not replacing them with new clothes, furniture and other items that require lots of energy to produce.
OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover makes it possible to extend the life of your favorite objects. Made with 100% renewable electricity and a five-ingredient formula, it’s an effective way to keep your home looking fresh. Here’s how to get the most out of this secret weapon.
Because OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover works on pretty much any soft washable surface, we’ve only scratched the surface of what you can save with it. And you save a lot more than objects when you make items inside your home last. Removing a stain saves so much else. It saves money. It saves space in landfills. It saves the sentimental value attached to these objects. With OxiClean™, you can even save yourself the hassle and cost of buying different cleaning products for each room in your home.
When thinking about OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover, you should put heavy emphasis on ‘versatile,’ since it can do a lot more than remove stains. It can have your bathroom tile and grout sparkling, saving you the expense and time that goes into a home renovation project. It can freshen up hand-me-downs, so you won’t have to go on a shopping spree every time one of your kids has a growth spurt. It can even be used outside to clean your deck and patio furniture. With just one product, you can save the sentimental value attached to an item, the cost of replacing it and the waste of adding an old favorite to a landfill. It’s truly a triple-threat, but that’s not the only reason it’s called a “versatile” stain remover.
If you’re going to use one product in so many ways, it’s important to make sure it fits your goals for leading a sustainable life. That’s why it’s such a relief that OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover is manufactured with 100% renewable electricity. An added bonus is that this product only needs five ingredients to get the job done, meaning you’ll limit the types of chemicals you introduce into your home.
So far we’ve only talked about the softer side of OxiClean™, particularly how it can salvage clothing you might initially think is done for. But the product works just as well on hard surfaces throughout your home. It can have your floors looking as spotless as that holiday sweater you rescued from a box in your attic. Also, because you’re using one cleaning product for so many different jobs, you’ll be buying and wasting fewer cleaning supplies. Take a look at where exactly you can use it in your home, on soft and hard surfaces alike:
- Bathroom: OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover works on shower curtains, tile floors, grout and more. Bathroom cleaning will be simpler than ever.
- Living Room: Don’t flip the cushion if you spill something on the couch. Just use OxiClean™ to have it looking spotless. It can also help your pillows and rugs look fresh.
- Kitchen: OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover makes kitchen cleanup simple. It works on hard surfaces including counters, floors and anywhere else you might spill something.
- Dining Room: Mealtime is where most stains strike. Use OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover to have any tablecloth, fabric napkin—or the floor below—sparkling in time for the next meal.
- Backyard: From umbrellas to seat cushions, patio furniture can take a beating from the elements. Clean up the damage with this versatile stain remover.
- Kids Rooms: You can ask your child to stop spilling things or use OxiClean™ to clean up messes on the carpet, bed sheets and pillows. The latter will probably be more effective.
Preserving what’s inside your home by cleaning it well is a great start to being thoughtful about waste and energy use. But there are still plenty more ways OxiClean™ can help you along the path towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
Shop Vintage. Make a Difference:
Doing your best to lead a sustainable lifestyle doesn’t mean you never can go shopping again. It’s just about trying to do so in more thoughtful, responsible ways. One easy way is to frequent vintage and second-hand shops rather than the usual retail locations. And that shouldn’t be limited to just clothing. Buying vintage furniture can also reduce energy consumption and waste, while adding some serious character to your home.
You can also save some money by purchasing a couch that looks like it’s seen better days, knowing that you have the perfect tool for making it look fresh and spotless. Having OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover at the ready means that reclamation projects are surprisingly easy. Your home will be a brighter place because of it.
Develop a Sustainable Wardrobe
The part of your home where you can do the most work cutting down waste is your wardrobe. Studies show that clothing manufacturers are the sixth largest emitter of fossil fuels in the entire world. A great way to counter that is by holding on to the clothes you love even longer. When you have the ability to remove almost any stain with the help of OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover, that process becomes much, much easier.
Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you need to swear off shopping forever to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. Just try to be more thoughtful about where you get your new clothes. Instead of getting brand new items, head to your local vintage or second-hand store. There are tons of stylish clothes that have already been made, and if you’re worried about them being stained or musty, you can have them looking clean and fresh with OxiClean™.
Try a Capsule Wardrobe
A capsule wardrobe is a handful of interchangeable essential items that allow you to create lots of different outfits with just a few pieces of clothing. The items get a lot of use, so you’ll want to have a versatile stain remover on hand.
