If you’ve been around here for any period of time, you know of my love/hate relationship with laundry. More hate than love. Laundry is my nemesis, put on this earth only to make me kick and scream on Saturdays. I would rather walk naked down the street than do laundry. Unfortunately, Chris does not agree. So, laundry wins (sigh). Fortunately, Tide showed up in my life a few weeks ago and brightened this past Saturday for me. I have seen these little Tide Pods in the grocery store before and have been tempted to try them, but, honestly, I kind of thought they were more for show. I mean, how much better could a Tide Pod make my laundry experience? Couldn’t I just use the liquid? (Incidentally, I used this same philosophy when those gel packs came out for dishwashers, too. And when I gave in and tried them out, I realized that those suckers are awesome!) So, Tide sent me this cute little pouch of Tide’s 3-in-1 Detergent Tide Pods and said, “Here, Katie. Let us help you with your laundry.” …uh…Okay…
So, I tried them. The directions said to just plop the Tide Pods into the drum before loading the clothes. Really, Tide? Really? Are you sure it’s that easy? Because I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to be measuring and pouring and dripping detergent all over my feet. But, I’ll do what you say.
And I did. I dropped the little pac into my washing machine, loaded my clothes and waited.
When my laundry came out, it had that clean Tide scent that I LOVE. That one little pac smelled up my entire load with goodness. More than that, though, it had gotten rid of several stains that my regular liquid detergent hadn’t been able to even fade. I have to say, I was skeptical, but I’ve been proved wrong, my friends. I AM A BELIEVER! In summary, here are the things I have learned: 1. It is deceivingly fun to drop little Tide Pods into washing machines. Ridiculously fun. I can’t explain why. You’ll just have to trust me. Or try for yourself. 2. Those little Tide Pods clean your laundry and leave it fresher than my previous liquid detergent. Word. 3. I have a great desire to squish things that are squishy. Like Tide Pods. Those things are jelly and squishy and I almost squeezed, like, 10, in my hand just to see what it felt like. The great thing about Tide Pods are that you can pop ‘em in, then stand out in your clothes!
