First, check out how I received the product! Cool huh?! You GOTTA see this chart:
The picture didn't come out too great, but it's a grass stain at the top, then treated with Arm & Hammer Power Gel, and the last photo is the grass stain treated with a competitor's detergent.
Interesting huh? You can see a MAJOR difference in the actual display that I have - not so much in the photo above!
I tried both of these detergents out, and since I've been a longtime fan of ANYTHING by Arm and Hammer, I already knew I wouldn't be disappointed - and I wasn't! Stains came out easily, and most importantly, all of our clothes were clean and fresh smelling!
I think I've found my new detergent!
