My husband and I have a lot of laundry each week. I hear this only gets worse when you add kids to the picture. . .but for now I'm even having trouble getting all of our clothes washed, dried and folded each week.
We have really committed to working out the past several months, which is great, but it adds a whole new layer to our laundry pile. On top of daily outfits, we have work out attire, comfy "around the house" wear, and dress clothes. Each category requires sorting, different wash cycles and the possibility of hanging to dry or not.†
I'm pretty picky about how things are washed, whether they are hung to dry or thrown right in the dryer, and if they need to be steamed or ironed. We have three laundry baskets, one for whites, one for darks, and one for "specials". I'm the only one allowed to touch the "specials" basket. And that's because it's all my clothes in there!
I've never been particularly enthusiastic about one brand or type of detergent because all I want is for my clothes to smell nice and be clean. I've tried the generic brand, a high end brand, and everything in between. I usually buy in bulk at Costco whichever is cheapest. The one constantly annoying thing that happens to any brand of liquid detergent, however, is the leaks and drips that fall out of the nozzle. I can't stand it when I grab the detergent and have residue all over my hands.†
I recently got the opportunity to try Tide Pods. I loved the ease of just throwing a pac and and turning the machine on. Plus, there is no mess.†
*†Based on stain removal performance of 1 pac of Tide Pods vs. 6 doses of the leading liquid bargain brand base variant in a standard top loading machine.
Each pac brightens, cleans, fights stains, and leaves our clothes smelling fresh! And even though the pac looks small, it's powerful enough to clean even the largest loads of laundry.
