OxiClean is a detergent that comes in liquid, spray, powder, and many other forms. This detergent is great to “get the tough stains out!” I know from personal experience it works, but not for ALL things. I mix the powder in with Tide and this combination gets stains out pretty well. One thing I found is that it gets out dirt and mud pretty well but like when I got a bloody nose, it got some of the blood out of my shirt but there’s still a brown spot in the middle of the shirt now. However, Oxiclean did get most of the stains out. It gets most of the tough stains out.

Comparison

I’m going to compare Oxiclean to some other detergents I’ve tried. First, Tide. I have used Tide by itself, and it does work very well. It could get just as much, or even more, tough stains out than Oxiclean. Tide doesn’t have as much branding as Oxiclean (I think all their sales are because of Billy Mays because he’s a product selling legend.) Personally, I think Tide is better than Oxiclean. Now I’m comparing Oxiclean to Downy. Downy has a better smell than Oxiclean, but Oxiclean, in my opinion, works better than Downy. I think that Downy should work less on the smell, and more on how it works on clothes and stain removal.

Oxiclean’s Original Spokesperson: William Darrell Mays Jr.

William Darrell Mays Jr., or as more people know him as Billy Mays, was an “American television direct-response advertisement salesperson” and was mostly recognized for products like Fix-it, OxiClean, Orange Glo, Kaboom, Zorbeez, and other cleaning, home-based products. Billy was 5’10” and was born on July 20, 1958 in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania. He died June 28, 2009 in Tampa, Florida at the age 51 from cardio vascular disease. It was said that he was a smoker. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! Billy would have been 60 if he was alive today in 2018. Maybe even still selling home-based products. Sadly, his life has ended, but he will forever be the best advertisement salesperson ever. Rest in Peace Billy.

New Oxiclean Guy

Since Billy died, Oxiclean needed a new salesperson. They found Anthony Sullivan. Born on February 11th, 1969 in, Devon, United Kingdom. Anthony John or “Sully” Sullivan is an English entrepreneur and infomercial pitchman of media shopping in the United States. He’s best known for his roles in television commercials. A lot of younger people knows him as the “Oxiclean Guy” because Billy Mays died before most kids could remember his face and/or name. I personally think Billy Mays was, and still is, a better salesperson than Anthony Sullivan because more adults (the people that need to buy detergent usually) think Billy Mays is better. I asked my Mom, Dad, Brother, Grandma, Grandpa, Nan, and Papa and they all said they remember buying Oxiclean because of Billy Mays and don’t know who Anthony Sullivan is.

Those are my facts about Oxiclean and people that advertised it. I hope you learned something. Like that you can’t always “get the tough stains out” with Oxiclean. But you sure, can try.
