Tide Pods (+$100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!)

I live under a pile of laundry.  With three out of my four kids in sports, and a husband with a serious crush on CrossFit, the laundry pile never, ever goes away.  I didn't even mention my preschooler who is constantly snacking and rubbing her sticky face with her sleeves.

See what I mean about laundry?  Several days a week I can be found lugging laundry baskets (notice the plural) down two flights of stairs to the basement.  The days I'm not lugging them down the stairs I'm either lugging them up the stairs or asking Hubby to do it for me.

I look kind of like this, but usually not as happy and poised.


It's safe to say laundry in this house has taken the place of cardio.  It's a fair trade.

For a long time, I was all about buying the cheapest laundry detergent.  With how much laundry I do, and how much clothes the kids grow out of, I wasn't finding it necessary to spend the money on more expensive detergents. 

A few months ago my stance on this changed.  I found that if I took a little more pride in my laundry pile, the clothes looked better and smelled cleaner.  Stains faded and colors stayed bright.  I was washing less because one cycle was doing the job.  My new favorite detergent to cut how much time it takes to do my laundry?

Tide Pods.

Along with being compact, Tide Pods have made my life under the laundry pile easier.  Simpler.  They offer detergent, stain remover and brightener in one little package, and I toss one in with the wash and I'm off and running.

No messy measuring cups, no stain remover, and no detergent on my hands.  They dissolve quickly in top and front loading machines, and it's safe to say these little buggers are worth every penny. 


Visit Tide Pods. online to purchase and learn more.  I love these little guys, and you will too.  Anything to make laundry a simpler process is welcome in this house.  I'm sure every mother fighting through her laundry pile feels the same.

To be entered to win a $100 Visa gift card, tell us how you deal with all the laundry in your house.  One day at a time?  One day a week?  Share and be entered to win!

  36. I manage the laundry just about every other day, or when the hamper gets filled, I know it's time to do a load. I wait until I have an extra large load to save on energy and water. I like the ideal of the pod's, no need to pre-measure and no spills to clean up.

  63. I love doing laundry! I do some handwash daily, also I like to spritz with water and a little fabric softener things that have been worn but don't need washing, such as a cardigan. I do batches of laundry mostly on the weekend. I'm often soaking and washing new fabrics before using them for sewing. I love Tide and it is rated very high.

  162. I have to do laundry as it comes - or it would be insurmountable! I do loads as I get them - and manage to keep it all in control!

  170. I do a load or two a week, I separate everything first by color and then start washing & drying. I hang everything up right away also so I do not have a bunch of wrinkled clothes too.

  185. I try my best to do 2 loads a day or I end up with a mess. It's hard to get caught up and can take a few days if I don't. Thank you!
