Maytag's #MyFilthiestPlay Photo Contest

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Maytag for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Out of my three children, I only have one who is really interested in sports. He’ll play whatever sport I sign him up for, but his love is baseball.

Over the years I’ve enjoyed watching him grow and develop his personality. He’s a fun-loving, energetic little boy who knows how to get filthy. Especially when he’s on the ball field.

It didn’t take long during his first year of ball to realize that baseball is a dirty sport. After every practice, and every game, my boy came off the field absolutely filthy. And his clothes, y’all — covered with dirt and grass stains.

Because even when it’s not necessary to slide for the run, it’s just what you do when coming in to home plate.

The next season, I encouraged my husband to be the White Sox — so that the kids could wear black pants! And for the last several seasons, that’s what we’ve done. Black pants for the win!

As fun as baseball season is, the constant washing and drying of the baseball uniform gets old — fast. But with a tried and true laundry regimen and a high-quality, powerful and up to date washer and dryer duo, it doesn’t have to be so stressful and time-consuming. I mean, no one likes to wash the same pair of pants over and over in an attempt to eliminate a grass stain!

Maytag wants to highlight personal stories on fifthly moments/uniforms from your family during the nationwide contest, “#MyFilthiestPlay”. As the official washer and dryer of Major League Baseball, Maytag is calling ball players of all ages to upload photos or videos of their sliding, diving or just “filthy plays” using “#MyFilthiestPlay” on Twitter or Instagram. Each week prizes will be awarded. Examples include a Maytag Top Load Washer and Dryer pair, and the opportunity of a lifetimea grand prize trip to the World Series. Whether it be sliding, diving or any other “filthy” play, make sure you share it with the world and tag it with the #MyFilthiestPlay hashtag to be entered to win a prize.


Maytag laundry units are better built because they are designed, engineered and assembled in America and have the power to clean big league stains. Those little league stains don’t look so big now, do they?


Share your Filthiest Plays of the Week.

    He looks like he is having a good time. My kids have not asked about sports yet really. They are involved in Cub Scouts and Daisy Scouts though which keeps us busy during the school year ?

  14. Tonya says:

    I used to play ball- and so did both my brothers. Our mom would soak our pants in Biz Bleach for hours and scrub them and soak them some more. That was just so much work. Ball is such a messy sport. Kudos to you for convincing your husband you needed black pants. That’s a great idea. Whoever thought of white for baseball anyway?

  15. Melissa says:

    What a fun contest! I think I’ve got some pics of my kids dirty after playing in the mud!

    For us it’s soccer and horses so I totally get the never ending dirty laundry! Good thing May Tag is there to help!

    Even just playing in the yard my kids would get so dirty! Baseball pants were always awful from sliding into bases especially when it rained. Great contest from Maytag!

  18. Debra says:

    The amount of stinky soccer girl clothes I was is astounding! I need a better washer!

  19. Michele says:

    Wish I was allowed to have a washer/dryer in my apartment! It’s not only kids who can get filthy in a New York second!

  20. Michelle F. says:

    Those are some great shots. My daughter gets all dusty and dirty from the grass at soccer so I could definitely use one of those washing machines.

  21. Julie says:

    Love the picture of him sliding! As a Mom of all boys I am very familiar with letting kids play and get filthy.

  24. Jeanine says:

    This is great. My kiddos play soccer and oh boy do they ever get dirty. HAHA. Having 4 boys there is some pretty filthy clothes and uniforms. My girls don’t really get that messy. This is really neat to do, fun contest!

  25. Claudia Krusch says:

    I love this contest so much. I should enter! My son has a PHD in being filthy!

  26. Rachelle says:

    haha what a funny contest! I hear you about sports being dirty. I had a ballerina for 3 years who just decided she wanted to take a break and play soccer. Let’s just say it’s a little different than I’m used to. But it’s still fun!

  27. Christie says:

    Ha, I can so relate to this! Soccer season this fall and baseball in the spring, my son will be getting filthy!

  28. Ourfamilyworld says:

    I would love to win this washer and dryer. I don’t have a filthy baseball player, but kids sure can get dirty.

  29. Ann B says:

    My kids were very active in sports when they were younger. I remember all the laundry this created. Sports are a great way for kids to learn about team work.

  30. thats a great shot. I got some dirty kids too! this is a great contest

  31. Danielle K says:

    This is such a fun contest. My little one has been asking to play T-ball so we’ll have to sign him up. He gets pretty dirty playing soccer, so I’ve always got tons of laundry every week.

  32. Debbie Denny says:

    My son was in football. Oh the dirt. Lots of laundry

  33. Little Miss Kate says:

    With 2 boys who are just getting into sports I can see LOTS and LOTS of laundry in my future.

  34. Chasing Joy says:

    Baseball is the right sport for a filthiest photo contest. The dirtier the better that means more time on the field for your little guy than on the bench.

  35. Stephanie Keeping says:

    This is such a great contest!! My son loves to play Football so I am sure I can come up with some great photos!
