When it comes to laundry detergent, I’ve gone through all the trends. I tried the baking soda trend. I tried the natural, save the planet trend. I went through a bleach period. But I’ve come back to where I started, which is Tide laundry detergent. It just gets the clothes cleaner! After years of using earth-friendly products, that first load of laundry with Tide in it practically sparkled. The whites were so white! And this is just regular Tide. No fancy additives or bleach. My favorite Tide is the original scent one, because not only do the clothes look really clean, that have that clean smell too (which, if you have a teenage boy in the house, really counts for a lot!) I’ve since moved to the Free & Gentle Tide because I have sensitive skin that’s prone to rashes, especially in the winter when everything is so dry. It has no perfumes, but it still manages to have a fresh scent. We use the high efficiency version because we have a front-loading washer, and one 100 fl oz container lasts forever! You really don’t have to use very much of this detergent to get a load really clean, even when it’s a big load!
So I’m a traditionalist. I think of Tide as a traditional family value, and I’m not going to experiment any more!
