The first one is TIDE STAIN RELEASE - In Wash Booster. I bought this on accident when it first came out a few years ago. (I had a coupon for $3.00 off and thought it was laundry SOAP with a booster.)
After I figured out what it was, and used it, I was impressed with how bright my laundry was. But lots of things can give me that. Here is what won me over. IT GOT MUSTARD OUT OF ONE OF MY BLOUSES. (Mustard, to me is like a dye.)
I don't use it every load. I use it most for my light loads (not towels). I have kept buying it. And I still look for coupons.
I also like TIDE TO GO stick. (It is like a marker of spot remover that you use by going over the spot, to remove it, on the spot. It sometimes dries with a faint ring around the missing spot. That washes out.) It has been used often by my family. (It worked on a sweet flower girl's dress when she got hurt, and bled on her dress.)
I keep SHOUT COLOR CATCHER around just in case. I like it when an item is part dark and part light? Which load do I wash it in? (Usually dark - with a COLOR CATCHER.)
I use it when I am washing a new item and am unsure about color fastness.
I also use it case of an emergency. The standard case of the white(ish) shirt that jumped in the dark load. It has always pulled the color out, after the incident, for me.
My box is a 24 sheet size, and I have had it for several years.
Last but not least is basic White Vinegar. I use a gallon of vinegar about every other month. It is great for removing odors. (Pool/chlorine, pet accidents (if your cat is very old), dish cloths...)
It is also helpful in cutting hard water. Vinegar is a good basic cleaning tool.
I have a favourite laundry soap, stain remover, dryer sheet and fabric softener. (Don't we all?) These are just a few other helps I have found.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR SOME OF YOUR FINDS :) You can share your finds and experiences by leaving a comment.
Next Wednesday we will share some $$$ store finds and favourites.
All opinions (and actual products) are mine. I was not compensated. I do try to find coupons.
