Disclosure: This post is part of the Clorox Bleach It Away campaign with The Motherhood. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

If you have children, you have probably learned right from the start that there will be many messy moments. Even as newborns, there are explosive diapers, spit up, and more to contend with. As children grow, their messes only get bigger. As parents, we have come to celebrate the messy moments.

Bleach It Away

I mean, let’s face it. There are some messy moments during the parenting journey that we really just have to laugh at, right?! We simply clean up the mess and grab the Clorox® Regular-Bleach for the clothes. Whatever the occasion, parents can rest assured that Clorox is there to help clean up the mess.

I cannot even begin to remember every mess. In 18 years of parenting, I promise you we have had our fair share. But, I think that our youngest has perhaps been the “best mess maker.” She loves getting into her sister’s things… whether that be their make-up, markers, or toothpaste. Not only does she manage to get the mess on her, but often she shares with our walls, sheets, and furniture as well. This one definitely keeps us all on our toes.

Believe when I say that we have pretty much “been there, done that” with all types of messes. And I really only plenty of photographic evidence of the last two. But I do sympathize with you. It is a dirty job in more ways than one sometimes… but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

    Love the photos, reminds me of when my sons were that age. They were always covered in sauce, chocolate, dirt, etc… I had handi-wipes in every room of my house 🙂

  6. Clorox is a fixture in our house! Between a two year-old dirt-loving dog and a seven year-old boy, we have many bleachable moments! Thanks for sharing your adorable pictures! It’s nice to see that I’m not the only mom who has to reach for the bleach on a regular basis!
