#PassitOn Arm & Hammer Laundry Gift Basket - #giveaway


Summer is here, and with that comes even more laundry than normal.  Between the inevitable freezie spills, ice cream drips and dirt, there is also the sweat that comes from being outside most of the day with active little boys.  They spend a lot of their time running around playing soccer, bike riding and climbing trees - and their clothes definitely need to be changed more often because of it (sometimes 3 times a day).

The lovely people at Arm & Hammer™ Laundry want to help you out with YOUR laundry this summer, and are offering my readers the chance to WIN an Arm & Hammer™ Laundry Gift Pack! You can use these products to give your clothes a freshening clean, so you can start fresh everyday!  Have a look at the infographic below, and then use the giveaway tools form at the bottom of this blog post to enter for your chance to win!


Contest is open to Canadians 18+ (excluding Quebec) and will run from July 10th 2015 until August 3, 2015.  Mandatory entries MUST be completed or all bonus entries will be invalid. Good luck!  Our Family World is ALSO hosting a giveaway - for more chances to win, check out their post (you may only win once)

I received my own Laundry Gift Basket in exchange for this post.  All opinions belong to ToM; your opinion/experience may vary.
