My Tide is Free and Gentle - Toronto Teacher Mom

My Tide is Free and Gentle

Saturday, October 25, 2014

As much as the scent of original Tide will always evoke a sense of nostalgia for me, my detergent of choice these days is the new Tide Free & Gentle, now available in Tide Pods. It's not that my skin is sensitive to detergents. I simply prefer to limit the amount of perfumes in the home. Blame my post-natal olfactory bulb and the ultra sensitive sensory receptors therein. Too many scents can be overwhelming. Unless we're talking about the smell of freshly baked waffles in the morning...


After attending Cascade Blogger Day last summer, I have a new-found appreciation for the science behind detergent. So when I received a tub of the new Tide Pods Free & Gentle, I was very eager to try it out. 


Before tossing a load of laundry in my front-loading high efficiency LG washer, I placed a pod of Tide Free & Gentle. After a successful first load of dark clothing which included my designer Pink Tartan sweater, I threw in a bunch of whites consisting of mostly towels and the kids' white uniform tops.


Given that my kids' white shirts are seldom fully white, I decided to try out the new Tide Stain Release Boost. These shirts could use all the help they can get!


For the past several years, ever since Bounce introduced their Free & Gentle fabric softener, I have been using their sheets in the dryer to help control static. I rarely use a fabric softener in the wash but my bath towels have lost their softness and quite frankly, they need to be replaced. Once I've restocked the bathroom cupboard with fresh new towels, I'll be sure to use Ultra Downy Free & Gentle to keep them looking and feeling great.

* Update: I never really used fabric softener in the wash before and always relied on Bouncy sheets in the dryer instead but since I have been using the Ultra Downy Free & Gentle, my old, sad-looking bath towels have been given a new life. I can't believe how soft they are now! *

Please remember: Always keep Tide Pods and other detergent products out of reach children.
