Celebrating Hockey Moms #PGMom #Giveaway

Hockey Mom

I am not a hockey Mom….yet, but there is a chance that one day I will become one. I have been a dance Mom which took dedication, but I have no clue how being a hockey mom compares!

Sports teach children life skills like cooperation, team work and communication!

On March 17th, P&G launched The House that Mom Built website where Canadians can celebrate minor league Hockey Moms!

Hockey Moms play the role of the carpool queen, tournament manager, equipment manager, the official cheerleader, after-game snack maker and uniform washer, to name just a few. All of the roles that Hockey Moms play are important and they deserve to be shown by having their name virtually raised to the rafters.

Tide, Downy, Febreze, Bounty and Puffs
are here to help hockey Moms do their job!

To help out all athlete moms, P&G created the ultimate tip sheet to take you from the change room to the laundry room at home and help make caring for your athlete a little easier:

  1. Skates are expensive.
    To save blades from rusting wipe them down after each and every skate but be careful, they’re sharp. Try using Bounty Duratowels which are tough enough to wipe them off. For efficiency, keep a roll in hockey bags.
  2. The lingering smell of hockey equipment in the car is only made worse when the heat is turned on high in the winter. To get rid of car odour, try Febreze Car Vent Clip Air Freshener for 30 days of fresh scent.
  3. Runny nose after being in the cold arena? Coffee spill in the car? You’ll never have to search for a tissue with Puffs Car Cup – tissues specifically designed to fit in the cup holder of your vehicle.
  4. Jerseys and socks soak up the sweat, snacks, beverages, and worst of all, the odour that comes with being an athlete. To keep their uniform looking bright and smelling fresh, throw them in the washing machine with detergent, specially designed for sportswear. Don’t forget to sprinkle in a little love and lasting scent with Downy Unstopables for freshness that releases as kids move!
  5. Wet equipment left in a hockey bag after a game or practice is a breeding ground for odour-causing bacteria. To prevent odour, air out all equipment after every practice and game on a drying rack. After taking the equipment out of the bag, try spraying all equipment (even soles inside the skates) with Febreze Fabric Refresher Extra Strength for long lasting freshness. For a safety net, keep the to-go version in your purse for a burst of freshness anytime.

With help from P&G, I would like to offer you the opportunity to win a Hockey Mom Prize Pack including:

  • Tide plus Febreze Freshness Sport HE 2.04L Active Fresh Scent – $12.97*
