Swimming in Puddles

Oh how our youngest loves to submerge himself in puddles! How can we say no to a child having the time of his life? A little dirt never hurt anyone, right? His immune system will just keep getting stronger by the day at the rate he's going and we're OK with that.

The first time my husband and I noticed this passion for muddy puddles was at his brother's baseball game a couple of months ago. There was a heavy downpour the night before and a lot of the field had accumulated big water holes the size of wading pools. As we take our eyes off our baby boy for a second to watch our eldest son play baseball, we turn back to see him lying down in one of the mud pools. It was quite comical for all of us (his sister included who was also watching the game from the sidelines).

Now every time he sees a large puddle he wants to dive right in as if it's his own personal mud bath, even when we try to discourage him to do so. We have to draw the line sometimes, because a muddy toddler is very hard to clean up especially when you're not in the comforts of your own home. But, the other times when we do give in and let him swim in those puddles of mud he loves so much, we want to make sure that we have a good stain remover at home that will help restore his clothes back to the way they were, pre mud bath. We just discovered OxiClean Max Force™ pre-treat stain remover that you can leave in for up to 7 days and are ecstatic that it successfully got out our toughest stains. Being able to reuse our children's clothes (and our own) as often as possible is very important to us because we pass down the garments and are really big on reusing, not replacing.

This T-shirt had a few chocolate fudgsicle drips on it; OxiClean Max Force was applied soon after the spill was made and left to set for 5 days. After washing the shirt in hot water, the chocolate is all gone!
