As I’ve mentioned numerous times, I love summer in Chicago. I feel so incredibly lucky to live in a city where summers are temperate and make spending time outdoors easy and so enjoyable. Our weekends typically consist of festivals, trips to the beach and rooftop patios. During the week, we’ll head down to the riverwalk for a drink, or over to Millennium Park for an outdoor concert and impromptu picnic! Seriously, this city is amazing.

The downside is that I’ve been finding a lot more stains on our clothes when it comes time to do laundry. There’s nothing worse than wearing your favorite white dress to a street festival to have it ruined by a splash of red sangria and a dribble of habanero salsa from those amazing street tacos (worth it). I don’t worry about it anymore though…

My mom used Shout® products when we were kids to get rid of all the crazy stains we’d get on ourselves. Apparently my sisters and I had an affinity for spilling hot chocolate on our new shirts when we were little and amazingly enough, Shout® was able to remedy those stains. So needless to say, I’ve always known the power of Shout® products and lately I’ve been finding them just as useful!

For deeper, everyday stains, I’ve been using Shout® Trigger Triple-Acting Stain Remover, and Shout® Advanced Gel for the worst of the worst mishaps – including carpet stains. Thank goodness for all these! I’m also kind of lazy when it comes to laundry and don’t like sorting my clothes into colored piles. So, I just throw in one or two Shout® Color Catcher® sheets to help keep the whites from coming out a different shade. Saving myself some time, stress and money! Sounds like a win-win-win to me! They make it easy to keep all my favorite summer clothes looking fresh all summer long and that’s worth raising a glass to! Just try not to spill, or do – Shout® has your back
