Oxygen Bleach from Tropical Traditions {A review and giveaway}

 I am excited to get to tell you about another great product from Tropical Traditions! Also one of you will get to win one. It is Oxygen bleach and though I'll admit I wasn't going crazy with excitement when I found out I won a jar (I was thinking- "oh bleach"...) I am pretty excited about it now that I have had a chance to try it and to read up on all the things it can be used for.

 I won my jar of Oxygen Bleach at the blog 50in8. I had happened over there because I have been following Tropical Traditions' blog that lists all the current giveaways of their products. Every so often when I have some extra time I go and enter in a bunch of them.

When they sent this out to me they said that I could also review it and give one away. Hurray! Not only did I get to win one but one of you can as well!

I have had fun reading up on what this is good for. It comes with some instructions and then they have even more here.



I was excited to find out it was good for treating carpet. Our carpet is in bad shape (cream just doesn't work well for our busy family- we hope to get rid of living room carpet sometimes) but still when there are spots that really, really stand out then I try to get rid of them. Once such spot arrived recently:
 I think it may have been cranberries from Thanksgiving.
I mixed up the oxygen bleach according to directions and used it. There is a little bit of a spot left but it is much better. However it did rather point out how yucky our carpet is as it left a lighter spot where I had treated.  There is hope though! The Oxygen bleach bottle says that it can be used in the carpet shampooer. I have been planning on shampooing pretty soon (I rent one about once a year) and I think this Oxygen bleach will help it to get much cleaner than the regular stuff does!

Next try out was some laundry.
 This pair of Megan's pants had some very set stains in the knees. I mixed up some hot water and Oxygen bleach and soaked them over night. Today I washed them in the regular laundry.

They aren't perfect but they are much much better and with hardly any work at all. I am pleased!

I did also try soaking some very old and stained dishcloths and napkin. I think they were to far gone- I didn't really see any change in them. So Oxygen bleach isn't a miracle worker but it works well and it is safer for us and the environment.

 Another thing that I like about it is that it is going to stretch so far. You get 6 lbs of powder and you only use an ounce or so at a time.

If you would like to buy this you can get a great deal today! It is on sale for $16.75 but through the end of the day if you use code: 241110 you can get $10 off. Also if you chose "referred by a friend" on your order and put in the code: 6527139 You will receive a free book about Virgin Coconut Oil. It looks like it would be very informative and useful. I would also benefit. If you need any help at all their customer service department is available.

Hi Abbi! I am wanting to enter your contest! I have subscribed to the Tropical Traditions email newsletter and also commented on your Thanksgiving post. It seems it would be nice to use the Oxygen Bleach in the toilets because it is safe for the septic systems. The All Purpose Cleaner looks like it would be nice to use.

Darrell said...

I had no idea it was good for the septic system! I also like that you can use it in laundry.

Thanks for the giveaway. I would like to try the non-toxic carpet cleaner. I have a carpet scrubber and am never happy when I have to use a commercial cleaner, but my carpets need cleaned.
