I hate doing laundry. Of all the daily chores, it has to be one of the worst. With three active little kids, I look at each piece of clothing before I put it into the washer and debate on if it will really come out clean. Of course I’ve tried all the tricks, but there are somethings that can’t be saved.
My son can’t eat without getting food all over his outfit and he can’t play outside without coming in looking like he may have rolled in mud. My younger daughter thinks that leggings are a daily must-wear and I often catch her playing in the sandbox and grass in one of her many white pairs.
I can’t tell you how many pair of white leggings have had to move on because of black knees, often with holes worn in them. This weekend was no different. Izy had managed to find and dirty the knees of three pairs of white leggings – dirt, grass stains, and even red marker. I looked at each one sadly as I dropped it into the washer, knowing they were her favorite and the stains would probably still be there when they came out.
I dropped two Tide Pods in just to be safe, crossed my fingers, and started the washer on cold. Shockingly enough, they came out clean!
Innovation that Improves Daily Life from P&G:
- Get Small: Tide Pods offer the power of Tide in the palm of your hand, giving you the proper dose each time you do laundry. They are compacted to use less water than traditional detergents. Tide Pods packages also weigh approximately 50% less than comparable packages of liquid detergent – making them much easier to carry and use!
- Get Multi: Tide Pods’ new, patented three chamber design helps to separate such ingredients as hard water modifiers, stain fighters, perfume and whitener so that they remain stable and potent and mix only in wash water. This allows the Tide Pods to deliver a deep-down clean in a range of conditions.
- Get Cold: 40% of Americans do their laundry in cold water more often than not in an effort to save time and money. In response to this, Tide Pods are made with a new, best-in-class film that dissolves and works effectively in all water temperatures – even in very cold water
