As a mom of three girly girls, you already know my days are surrounded by dollies and dance performances, and you already know that I spend my “free time” sewing and baking, but have we ever discussed my laundry pile? NO? That’s because it’s a nightmare. Along with the sugar and spice I’ve got going on, I also have three girls who like to change their clothes….a lot! As soon as I get the clothes hung up or put away in their drawers, I walk back through their room, and there’s a new heap of clothes. They bat their little eyelashes and promise to put away the clothes they’ve just changed into…for the tenth time today… And then the dog makes a comfy bed out of the pile of clothes and the cats find fluffy, little socks to drag through the house, and the clothes have to go back into the overflowing laundry basket. That’s the way it goes. Sometimes I get overwhelmed and the voice in my head screams, “I can’t catch up!” And sometimes, I just ignore the piles and close myself in my sewing room, and contemplate if I’m a success as a housekeeper/mother if I just sew up something for the girls to wear instead of battling another load of laundry. In addition, we are on the go so often during the week. Sprinting between school drop-offs and pick-ups, gymnastics, the grocery store, the fabric store, playdates…I don’t have time to be digging through clothes that are stained or dingy. I want to be able to throw on my outfit and stand out looking fresh and “together” throughout the day. When I get home, I want to spend as little time doing the laundry as possible. When I was introduced to Tide Pods laundry detergent, I was excited by the prospects of a little something new to curb my bad laundry habits and help to keep my clothes stand out clean and bright! Tide Pods have been easy to use, with their 3-in-1 cleaning power– they clean, brighten, and fight stains all with one squishy packet. I just pop the packet into the washing machine basin along with the clothes and hit go on my machine. They’re quick and efficient to use, without needing to pre-treat my stains or worry about all the dripping from a pourable detergent.
It’s also nice to have a brightener included in the detergent, particularly given the number of times I rewash the same clothes (dirty or not!) Tide Pods leave our clothes clean and smelling fresh. I also have to admit that the detergent pac is super fun to squish when I pop it in the machine! Even my husband seems to have picked up a newfound burst of laundry-washing motivation! We’ve got a lot of years of laundry ahead of us, a lot of years of dress-up (every five minutes), and a lot of years of dressing for on-the-go; it’s nice to know there’s a detergent working to make our clothes stand-out ready when they come out of the machine.
