Messy Moments Made Easy with Clorox #BleachItAway

by Carrie with Children with comments closed

Being a mom means cleaning up a lot of messy situations. From diapers to playing outside to mealtime cleanup – I feel like there’s always something that needs to be cleaned – and that includes laundry too!

One of my favorite messy moment memories is when Maggie was a baby and we let her feed herself spaghetti for the first time. She had so much fun making a mess and she loved spaghetti (and still does) even though only about half of it actually made it in her mouth.  It was a MESS – and we couldn’t help but laugh the entire time and grab the Clorox spray to clean up afterwards.


Clorox’s Bleach It Away celebrates messy moments, especially those unique to raising children. Recently survived one? Share your bleachable moment at for a chance to win $20,000 and more!  You can visit each week to select the best mess and enter to win a $50 gift card.
