Laundry. It’s a simple fact of life that it is ALWAYS there. In my household there is approximately one nanosecond between the time I finish doing all the laundry for the week and either one of the kidlets or The Hubs throwing a piece of clothing into the hamper to be cleaned. It’s a never-ending cycle of wear, wash, dry, fold and iron (as little as possible!).
But I’m going to share with you my dirty little secret….laundry is my favorite household chore. I know, I can hear the gasps of horror from moms nationwide as they read this!
Aside from loving the scent of freshly cleaned laundry, my best guess is that I enjoy the routine of the laundry process. The sorting and folding has a calming and focusing effect on me. I find that I come up with some of my best ideas and solutions to problems when I’m doing the laundry. Hey, it’s definitely cheaper than going to therapy!
Those bottles can be pretty heavy to lift, which leads to spills, and always leave a sticky residue on whatever surface I place them on – usually on the top of my washer.
So I was glad to switch to Tide® PODS, a 3 in 1 detergent that not only helps me get the clean I need but makes my laundry routine easier.
Tide PODS are ingenious!
Each pod contains three pre-measured chambers that include detergent, stain remover and brightener. They make my laundry routine easier because everything I need for a clean and fresh smelling load of laundry is all conveniently packed into a tiny pod, no matter if I’m washing whites or colors.
I just toss in one Tide POD per load and it dissolves quickly and completely in the wash – in either hot or cold water. They can be used in either standard or HE washing machines like I have.
I also like that Tide PODS helps me avoid overdosing my laundry with too much detergent – which is bad not only for my clothes but for my washer too. There’s also an added bonus. Since I’m not overdosing on detergent, I’m not spending as much, so I’m saving money $$$ – and that’s never a bad thing.
Just remember, like any household cleaning products you have in your home, it’s important to keep these laundry pods “Up, Up and Away” – seal the pods up, store the pods up and keep the pods away from your kids!
Tide PODS are available in Small and Medium Bags and Large, XL and XXL Tubs and retail around $15 for a 57 pod count. You can buy Tide Pods at your local grocery, big box store, warehouse club or even online.
Tide Pods is #LaundryRedefined – an easy, mess-free and cost–effective way to do laundry.
Now it’s your turn to share. What’s your favorite household chore?
