Keeping Pretty Prudent BEDquarters Clean

Thank you Clorox® and Cotton for supporting my work-from-bed lifestyle by sponsoring this post and by making my bed so irresistible.IMG_2821

Good morning from Pretty Prudent Headquarters, I mean BEDquarters where, I must confess, too much of the work-from-home business happens. I’m not proud and I also own a desk in a nice home office, but it’s so very far away, and so much less covered in comfy plush white cotton bedding. With all of the action this bed gets, oh, um, that’s NOT what I meant. Eww. My bed looks a lot less like a lux hotel room service pic…


And more like a diner kitchen…


and a haven for dirty kid footsies…


kitty butts…


and frequent art sessions. Yes, I even paint in my bed!


With my dreamy commute, there comes the challenge of keeping these cotton sheets clean and bright. After all, you can’t put a sparkling white photo filter on real life. That is where Clorox® Regular-Bleach comes in. It’s basically the Instagram filter for real life.        IMG_2834

Clorox® Regular-Bleach and Cotton make a good team. By choosing non-synthetic fibers like cotton, which tend to produce and trap fewer odors in the first place and release odors more easily during washing, I have less odor retention in my linens and a fabric that is soft, durable and easy to care for.  Check out this fun retro video that they made to illustrate the cotton vs polyester laundry challenge. Additionally, adding Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 not only removes tough stains and keep whites brighter longer, but sanitizes laundry to kill 99.9% of bacteria, which causes odor.

When it’s laundry time, use bleach on cotton or bleachable fabrics (avoid bleaching wool, silk, mohair, leather, spandex and non-fast colors), for whitening and/or stain removal in 3 easy step:

  1. Sort laundry by color
  2. Add detergent
  3. Fill bleach to maximum line or level in dispenser OR add measured amount of bleach to dispenser or wash water
    1. Measured amount:
      1. 1/2 cup/4 oz. for standard machine or high-efficiency machine wash
      2. 1 cup/8 oz. for extra-large washer or heavy stains or soiled load of laundry
  4. Add clothes and start wash.

There is nothing like a fresh-from-the-laundry set of white cotton sheets.IMG_2825It really helps with my work productivity.
