Get Rid of Stains this Summer with Help from Shout {Prize Pack Giveaway!}

While doing the seasonal clothing change in my daughters' closets and dresses at the start of the summer, I realized that they have an entirely new category of apparel for warm weather.

Along with changing long pants out for shorts and swapping in tank tops for sweaters, both girls have a designated space for those clothes that I deem as Outdoor Play. Because as much as I want to let them enjoy playing outside in the sun, eating popsicles and helping out in the yard, that means there will be the inevitable stains that remain afterward.

Fortunately, thanks to Shout, parents everywhere can embrace the stains and reach for their wide collection of high quality stain-fighting tools.

Shout logo

Launched last year to help educate parents on the benefits of play, Shout's Go Play initiative has been working to get families having fun outdoors without worrying about getting dirty. Messes happen, don't worry!

This year, Shout has continued on with their partnership with Jennie Finch, Olympic athlete and Mom, as their Shout stain expert. Between her years playing softball and caring for her two sons, Jennie has encountered her fair share of stains.

As well as standing behind Shout's great products, Jennie is also a part of Shout's newest venture – the Shout Unstructured Play photo contest!

Shout Unstructured Play

As unstructured play gives children the freedom to create and play with their imaginations, Jennie and Shout want to see what your family can come up with to demonstrate it!

During the contest (which runs from June 4 through July 1, 2012) simply submit photos of your children creating a game with just with their imaginations, three objects (such as glitter, a fly swatter, and a water wing) and the permission to play. Fans can vote for their favorite photos every week Thursday through Sunday and once a photo is submitted, it will be re-entered to win each week, so there is no need to resubmit.

There have been plenty of very cute entries so far!

Shout contest entries

Five winners will be selected each week to win a prize pack including all the Shout products needed to treat stains whenever and wherever they happen:
  • Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Brush
  • Shout Wipes
  • Shout Triple Acting Formula
  • Shout Color Catcher
  • $25 gift card
  • A vintage Shout t-shirt
This summer, don't worry about stains. Instead, let your family enjoy unstructured outdoor play knowing that Shout will be there to help clean up any messes... but be sure to snap a photo of them doing it! Find out more about the Unstructured Play photo contest on Shout's Facebook page, but remember, it ends on July 1st!

Thanks to the generosity of Shout, one person will be even more prepared for all of the messy fun that summer can bring, because...

One lucky person will win a Shout Prize Pack* of stain-fighting products!

*Prize pack includes a Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Brush, Shout Wipes, Shout Triple Acting Formula and Shout Color Catcher

(Enter with the Rafflecopter form below. If you have any questions or problems entering, there is a video tutorial found here that can help.)

A big thank you to Shout for providing a prize pack for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
