Shout Free Stain Remover Review & Giveaway

Laundry is one of those never-ending tasks that comes with being a mom. With 4 children ages 8 and under, some days it feels like I am forever scrubbing out another stain or sorting through a basket of dirty clothes. I try to do all my laundry within one or two days a week to cut down on the endless cycle, but it always seems that just when I’m pulling that last load out of the dryer, someone spills something or has a diaper blowout or some other mess where I have to do just one more load.

There’s not a whole lot that can prevent all that, but fortunately there are some great products that can help make laundry a little easier on us moms. Shout® Free has zero dyes and fragrance, and is made with 99% natural ingredients. It is safe for use on all colors and works in all water temperatures.

I have a favorite laundry stain remover already so I was a little hesitant on how well Shout Free would work. But I put my old stain remover away this week and put Shout Free to the test. It seemed the kids were determined to give Shout Free a good workout because the stains just kept coming. From spilled juice to a scraped elbow to filthy pant knees with all the usual inbetween, there was a lot.

Some stain removers say to spray and then wait 15 minutes before washing. To be honest, I didn’t read the back of my bottle of Shout Free before using it. I just used it. I sprayed it on stains and threw it in the wash after just a couple quick minutes. I folded that huge mountain of laundry two nights ago and everything was spotless. I even double-checked a few of Luke’s outfits and Joshua’s shirts that had been really dirty. Shout Free had removed everything.

I’m sold. Not only does Shout Free work, but the fact that it is dye-free, fragrance-free, and 99% natural is a huge plus for me. I’m not uber-“green” but if I can find a product that really works and is more natural, I’m all for it. Shout Free is one of those.

You can find Shout Free in stores everywhere and Amazon.

    keep a bottle of Dawn, a tooth brush, stain remover and soaking bucket under kitchen sink for those last mintue messes to be soaked before running out door.

  2. My tip is to pretreat all stains. Thank you

  3. Vinegar instead of fabric softener – soft and static free clothes without the build up!

  4. Wash everything in cold water, especially if you have a front loader, it gets everything just as clean and saves you money.

  5. Wash in cold water. IT just gets it just as clean

  6. I use Shout Free Stain Remover at home and it works very well, love the stuff!

  7. My tip is to wash new cotton garments in COLD water so you don’t shrink them. Also, air dry new cotton clothing so you set the size after the first washing. If you put new cotton clothing in the dryer after the first washing it will shrink unless you use very, very low heat setting or air/fluff setting and take garment out before it is totally dry and lay it flat or hang up to finish drying it.

  8. remove the clothes from the dryer as soon as possible so they don’t wrinkle

  9. Shout Advanced saves me most of the time.

  10. Use less detergent in normal loads; I find my clothes come out just as clean

  11. Trung Nguyen says:

  12. Michelle Hayden says:

  13. Katie Smith says:
