Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® + why I enjoy doing laundry
This post is sponsored by Tide® but as always, all opinions are my own.
Believe it or not, one of the things I most enjoy now that I live on my own is doing laundry. Why? Because for some reason I enjoy trying out different products to see which one I love more. That’s how you know you’re adulting, right? I’m always on the lookout for new laundry detergents to try out since I can now choose which one to buy and use. Ahhh, the adult life.
When Tide® reached out and offered to have me try its Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy®, I immediately said yes, because again, doing laundry is something I enjoy. I received the product and the first thing that caught my attention was its scent. The scent was April Fresh™ and I absolutely loved it! Another thing I forgot to mention was that I love experimenting with different scents which is why I loved this one. Guys, it smells really good and so clean!
Next up, testing them out to see how they measure up. I absolutely loved them! They left my clothes so clean, soft, and smelling super fresh. I especially loved using them for my towels and linens. Who doesn’t love extra fluffy towels?! One of the things I fear the most when trying out new detergents is how my clothes will turn out because it can smell good but some pieces tend to fade or stretch which ends up ruining some of my favorite pieces. That’s one of the things, besides the scent, I loved about these PODS™. I didn’t have to worry about the clothing fading or stretching because of its new breakthrough technology with its patented 3 chamber design, which in simple terms means that the ingredients in it condition the wash water as well as the garments. Tide® PODS™ plus Downy® is also suitable for fabrics that typically can’t be washed with fabric softeners such as fitness apparel. Another motivation to work out, right? I’m trying, people. I’m trying.
As always, remember to keep children safe around laundry packets by following this simple rule: Keep Them Up, Keep Them Closed and Keep Them Safe. I had to do this as well because even though I live alone, my friend Ana Cristina visits me frequently with her kids Cristina (age 5) and Guillermo (age 2) which means I need to be extra careful with them getting close to the packets which is why I store them on a top shelf inside my laundry room above my washing machine. That way I can be at ease and not worry about them reaching out and grabbing them while I’m chatting the afternoon away with my friend. Safety first, guys, when around children and pets.
They’re super easy to use and can be used in both regular and high efficiency washing machines. So don’t worry if you have a regular washing machine like me, you can feel just as fancy as people who have high efficiency ones 😉 Just toss them in the machine prior to your load and voilà. Don’t worry about them not dissolving properly in cold water; they’re made to dissolve perfectly fine in both hot and cold water.
As far as me experimenting with different detergents, that might stop for now since I loved these packets so much! Make sure to check them out and let me know what you think! You can thank me later 😉
