My Pink Whites: What’s Your Messy Moment?

With four kids I’ve had plenty of messes. And every one of us has had plenty of messes made, with or without kids involved! (I’m not even going to tell the pet stories.)

You can win $15,000 for sharing YOUR messy moment. 


(they even have some hysterical e-cards!)

Clorox has invited everyone to share their “bleachable moment” — and wants to reward you for sharing (and surviving) them.

When you share your bleachable moment, you’ll get a 50-cent-off coupon –and be entered to win $15,000 (the grand prize) or a $50 VISA gift card (one every day of the promotion).

I’ll tell you a little more after the break, but if you can’t wait, just visit www.bleachitaway.com to get started!

I had such a great time working with Clorox last year and hearing YOUR messy moments!

(In fact I’ll have a linky party coming up in January where we can share more.)

What’s my  most recent messy moment?

Somehow, a red kitchen towel got thrown in the washer with a load of whites. Yes, a new red kitchen towel.

As you might have imagined, every single white piece of laundry came out


(including my new bra.)

My daughter’s white shirts were pink, and while she likes pink, she was crushed that her shirts weren’t white anymore.

Of course, with a quick bleach rewash I solved most of the problems … but it was a great object lesson for the kids on the virtues of separating your laundry by whites and colors (LOL)!

What’s your bleachable moment? Go share it on www.bleachitaway.com!


I’m being compensated by The Clorox Company to talk about life’s messy moments as part of the Bleach It Away Program. See my disclosures here.


  1. Daughter washed a load of her & her sister’s clothes and got ink over pretty much everything. Then brought it home for mom to get out for her before her sister found out!! (No pressure!!) But I did it, I’m proud to say. lol

  2. I have a husband who never checks his pockets before laundry. bleach solves most of the problems, but it doesn’t fix the hundreds of exploded pens.

  3. Mine I can’t share in a public forum but think white pants and Aunt Flo. Not a good combo. The end.

  4. sitting on ketchup wearing white pants. oh my! my face was as red as the ketchup!

  5. With four dogs in our house we have plenty of bleachable moments! lol

    • haha – I bet!! We only have one dog and she is a handful. She is always jumping up on our sofa with her muddy paws.


  6. Love ya Jen!

  7. Where do I begin! Life without Clorox would be a disaster! I can remember with all my babies having horrible stains and having to throw away a lot of clothes unless they were white and Clorox to the rescue! I love the bleach pen!

  8. In my house, it’s cat puke. Yes… it’s gross! Thank goodness for Clorox:-)

  9. I agree with Amy- GRASS stains from my sport-playing kiddos!

  10. Grass and mud stains on my baseball players pants…ugh!

  11. Fingernail polish on my brand new pants. Gratefully they were white and I thought “what the heck” Totally came out!! Yay
