Ok, so I’ve had Honest Company’s Oxy Boost in my laundry room for quite some time, and honestly, it took me a while to use it because I didn’t really understand why it was something I needed. I even went online to research more about it so that I could understand, and I thought I’d share that with you!
Reasons to Use an Oxygen-Based Brightener
So basically these oxygen-based brighteners on the market are meant to be an alternative to chlorine bleach, and at least in the case of the product put out by the Honest Company, this alternative is not only safe for whites, but also for colors.
It is also intended to be like a boost for your detergent. The Oxy Boost product from Honest.com will help destain, deodorize, whiten, color brighten and soften the water so that the detergent can really get to work.
So I’ve been opting to use it in my loads of whites to help them perk up a bit (and I’ve noticed a difference!) and I’ve also been using the product on any loads that have laundry with heavier stains in them, just to help ensure that they come out after one wash.
I don’t think this is a necessary product to have, but I do think it can come in handy. My family will probably take close to 6 months to get through the pack of 24, so this isn’t a product I will be ordering monthly. But with that said, when I do purchase it again I will be adding to my monthly bundle as an add-on rather than in one of the 5 bundle slots. That’s because the price per item for the bundle is $7.20, and that price is better than the $7.95 retail price. But in each bundle you also can order up to 3 extra items for 25% off, each. At 25% off, the Oxy Boost costs $5.96. I’d rather pay that amount and save one of my bundle slots for something more expensive.
