A week ago I challenged HeyLaura to a Laundry Off. Her new Method Pump to my Purex 3-in-1. Two new concepts all developed to help busy moms make laundry easier and quicker.
The only stipulations of the challenge were a white shirt, ¼ cup of ketchup rubbed in and set for 24 hours, our preferred laundry selection) and a lone load of laundry.
To record my challenge, I have vlogged it here as I began the challenge. To tell you the truth, as I hit the laundry button I wondered if I was confident I had chosen the stronger opponent. But considering I had been doing my own laundry for weeks with the Purex, I decided to trust my instinct and let fate decide.
When I opened the lid I was excited to see that the red blog of ketchup was no longer there – well almost. Just as HeyLaura had indicated in her wash cycle, there was a slight stain where the large amount of ketchup had set (you might be able to see that as well in the photo where there is a slight yellow stain), but for the amount of trauma I gave to that shirt – it wasn’t bad since I hadn’t applied any stain treatment before the wash.
I think we might have a tie. I will continue to purchase my Purex as it is as simple as one little sheet takes care of everything. However, I won’t mind admitting that I may consider checking out Method’s pump. My quest to find the easiest and quickest way to do laundry is never over. Now I must find a new and better way to do the dishes!
Actually if you have a challenge, send it over! I would love to continue to put all those products to the test and see if it’s all marketing or the consumer companies are making things easier for us moms.
