Laundry. It’s not one of my most favorite chores but of course has to be done. It just isn’t all that fun, is it…but then again chores in general are not all that fun, are they? 😉

This week is laundry week for me. Yes…week. I have a bit of a bad habit of letting laundry pile up until there is nothing left to wear and then taking care of it all at once. Ideal? No, probably not, but it’s efficient!

Instead of dreading laundry week this time around, I’m actually looking forward to it because I have five new varieties of Tide to test out on my clothes:

Tide Ultra Stain Release
The Ultra formula contains technologies to help lift off stains with ease. 

Tide Sport
Tide plus Febreze Freshness SPORT is specially formulated to fight tough sports stains like grass, dirt, clay, and blood. It’s the #1 sports detergent that also helps eliminate odor.  

Tide plus Febreeze
Tide plus Febreze Freshness contains new renewing scent technology, which releases on motion. This provides bursts of freshness in your fabrics all day long. 

Tide plus Downy
Tide plus a Touch of Downy is also formulated with special ingredients that provide softening benefits throughout the wash.

Tide Cold Water
Tide Coldwater HE is specially formulated for your high efficiency washer to provide a brilliant clean in cold water conditions. 

Tide plus Bleach Alternative
Tide plus Bleach Alternative contains no chlorine bleach and has an ingredient that neutralizes the chlorine in your water, so it’s safe for all your machine-washable clothes and won’t cause colored garments to fade.

Who knew that there were so many options?! I’ve got items to wash that fit perfectly with all of these detergents! 

Over the next couple of days I’m going to be sharing my experiences with a few of these Tide varieties. In fact, I’ve dug through my piles and have come up with the two “dirtiest” items to really put Tide to the test. Here they are:


This is my dog’s blanket. It has been in their “house” for two weeks now and, well…it stinks! I’m going to be testing out Tide plus Febreeze on this one.


These are my ski pants. I’ve wore them about five times this season (don’t judge me ;)), and finally decided that they are long past due for a wash! I’m going to see if Tide Ultra is able to get these dirt stains out.

    Hey sudsyj!!!

    Let us know if that Sports variety is good at removing well, er, ah…yellow underarm workout stains….if you have any of those tops!!! When I read your “2 dirtiest items” I thought that included the dog as well!!! I was wondering what the heck…..??!! Wouldn’t want to get those cute lil bows all wet, now would we?! :)

      Hahaha Dawn! I actually think she is giving me that look because of the bows. :) As far as the underarm stains, I’m not 100% sure to be honest. If you give it a try please let us know. One thing that you might want to try is rubbing Tide Ultra on the stain prior to putting it in the wash…it can be used as a pre-wash treatment in addition to a detergent.
