The "Things Your Grandmother Knew To The Rescue" Contest

I have not forsaken ye. It's been a hectic few weeks to say the least, but I am alive and well -- even if I think I have the vapors from my interview in Collectors News magazine. I just need a little more time to sort through the magazines & scan for you. Meanwhile, you can really clean-up here with this giveaway contest...

Things Your Grandmother Knew To The Rescue!

Since I'm a member of the Spray 'n Wash Mom Panel, I'm giving away nifty Spray 'n Wash Bright & White mini washing machine-themed boxes with full-size 44 oz bottles of Spray 'n Wash Bright & White to two lucky winners!


Spray 'n Wash Bright & White is an effective alternative to bleach, specially formulated to remove stains and keep brights bright and whites white wash after wash -- safe to use even on clothing with tags that read "Do Not Bleach." Spray 'n Wash Bright & White can be used in-wash with your regular detergent, as well as be used as pre-wash spot treatment and a pre-wash soak treatment.

Here's How You Enter


Do any/all of the following:

1) Leave a comment telling me what stain or type of fabric you can't wait to try this on, or what garment or textile you want to try to rescue with Spray 'n Wash Bright & White.

2) Blog your "rescue" story -- If you use this entry option, you must link to this blog post and to Spray 'n Wash Bright & White -- and don't forget to leave a comment here with a link to your post so that I can find it!

3) Follow me on Twitter. (If you already follow me, leave a comment with your Twitter name &/or link.)

4) Tweet a link to this contest post and leave me a comment with a link to your tweet.

You may enter multiple ways, for multiple entries -- but you must be sure I have your email address so that, in the event that you win, I can contact you to get your mailing address.

While you wait to find out who wins, check out the sweepstakes at ListenToYourClothes.com. You could win one of more than 80 prizes throughout the year -- including the Grand Prize of a laundry room makeover, one year supply of Bright & White, and a clothing stipend! The total Grand Prize is valued at $10,000! Sweepstakes is open for entry through December 31, 2009.

You'll get an extra entry in the contest if you enter the ListenToYourClothes Sweepstakes and comment with the link to your entry too.

So let me recap: There are five ways to enter, and multiple entries are allowed -- but you must be sure I have your email address so that in the event that you win I can contact you to get your mailing address.

Comments/entries without a means to contact will not be entered into the contest.

This giveaway is open to residents of the US only.

Entries must be received before 4 PM, central time, April 20, 2009. Two winners will be drawn at random from a shoe box by (my daughter's) hand.

tutugirl said...

My kids don't know what napkins are and just wipe their greasy hands in their clothes. Of course, then they bury them underneath all the other clothes so that I don't notice the stains until after they've been washed and dried. I definitely need help on those.
