Wedding Day Disaster #2

Feeling Droopy: While you’ll remain gorgeous from head to toe on your wedding day can the same be said for your wedding flowers? Picture this: the day is beautiful, the sun is shining and it’s 95 degrees out, you and your spouse just tied the knot and you couldn’t be happier!

Then you make your big entrance at your reception only to find out all of your centerpieces and floral decor are wilting away! See the next slide for a wedding day fix!

Wedding Day Fix #3

How to wash hard, nonporous patio furniture surfaces such as plastic and painted or finished wood with Clorox Regular-Bleach: Water any plants that may get any runoff from the bleach and water solution near where you are working (a driveway is a good place).

Mix ½ cup Clorox Regular-Bleach per 1 gallon water in a plastic container or bucket. Use a garden hose with a spray nozzle to rinse off the items. Use a brush or sponge to apply the bleach solution, reapplying as necessary to keep the item wet for 5 minutes. Rinse the items, and allow to air dry. Re-water any plants. Now your chairs are wedding ready!

Pet stains: Including your furry friend in your wedding is stinking adorable!

Thankfully Clorox Urine Remover has a powerful odor and stain fighting formula so no one will ever know about Fido's wedding day mishap.

Grab a bottle of Clorox Urine Remover. Turn nozzle to “ON” position. Spray directly onto stain until completely covered. Rinse with water or wipe with a clean, damp cloth. For grout and tougher stains: Spray directly onto stain until completely covered. Wait 5 minutes, then rinse with water or wipe dry.

Wedding Day Disaster #6

Wine! Oh...: The moment she’d waited for, twenty-eight years in the making, was upon her. She was beaming with pride, and anticipation, when the bustle of her pristine attire clipped a goblet placed dangerously close to the edge of the table. Its contents: red wine. The aftermath: pure chaos – a blood-red wine stain tattooed the dress from just beneath her bust, all the way down to her knees. See next slide for a wedding day fix!
Wedding Day Fix #6

Facing the prospect of tarnished wedding pictures, a Clorox 2 Stain Fighter Pen miraculously appeared in the bridal suite. Fearing its contents might turn the dress yellow, my wife decided to cautiously test it on a small section of the stain…success!

Within minutes, the dress was whiter than when she had purchased it. Thanks to the Clorox 2 Stain Fighter Pen, my wife was able to confidently answer the bell, and walk down the aisle on time.When an untimely red wine stain put this into question, the Clorox 2 Stain Fighter Pen was the answer. *Not a portrayal of the actual couple.

Wedding Day Disaster #7

Tan-tastrophy: My dress was perfect, it was strapless, column style, floor length and dripping with beaded lace. There was a flyaway lace detail at the neckline, and the plan was to use spray starch, once the dress was on, to keep that delicate lace from flopping over.

What we didn't account for was the spray starch lifting my Fake Bake off and my gorgeous dress absorbing the color! I was looking down and noticed the color change almost immediately and had 3 bridesmaids with both dry and damp paper towels descend on me within 10 seconds. Luckily, I am close enough to all those girls and was in such a panic that the focus on my chest was not mortifying. We managed to get the color out of the lace and it was (thankfully) not noticeable in the photos.

Fake tanning woes are all too common but fear not! Whether it’s a fake tan fail, or an accidental makeup smudge, Clorox Regular-Bleach1 is tough on stains and has your back... or front as this dress disaster's case may have it! To treat stains start off by scraping any excess makeup/tan from clothing and then pre-treat with liquid laundry detergent or dish soap.

For bleachable whites with tough stains, wash on the hottest recommended setting with detergent and Clorox Regular-Bleach1. For colors, use Clorox2.
