Tide Pods & I why I love ’em {+ a giveaway}


Raise your hand if you like laundry? What, no hands? You must not be using Tide Pods! OK, fine I still don’t love doing laundry, but it’s gotten a lot better since I met Tide Pods. With Tide Pods, I pop in a whole new kind of clean! Here are 3 reasons you need them in your life:


1: They smell delicious. I do bikram yoga (on those blue towels in the photo above). If you now anything about Bikram yoga, you know sweating is not optional. It’s yoga in a 105 degree room. I can assure you those towels soak up some smells, yummy! We also use those towels to go to beach. Are you picking up what I’m putting down? They stink, kind of bad. I so wish I could photograph smell for you, but you’re going to have to take my word on this one. Those towels smell freakin’ amazing. Even Andy thinks so, and he’s got a super sniffer that can smell if I ate onions 3 days ago! Come over, and I’ll let you take a sniff!

2: Convenient. As many of you know, we recently moved from  a condo in Austin, TX to

a rental apartment in FL. With that move came lots of things, including no more laundry room in our house. Yep, we have a communal laundry facilities in our building. I love not having to drag down the whole heavy bottle of laundry detergent. With Tide Pods, I carry down exactly how many I need for the amount of loads I’m washing.

3: Clean. Even when I had a washer and dryer in my house, I didn’t like the drippy mess of liquid detergent. It spilled down the bottle  which goo-ed up my shelf. Tide Pods are no mess. You just throw one in and close up the bag. Done deal.

Need a few more reasons to love Tide Pods? How about the fact that one pac removes more stains than 6 caps of the liquid bargain brand. Or that Tide Pods are the only 3-chamber unit on the market. Pretty awesome, huh? So, what kind of laundry detergent do you use? Want to try Tide Pods? Well, here’s your chance to win $100 VISA gift card. That’ll buy you lots and lots of Tide Pods (or whatever else you want!)

  68. I do not see an actual sweepstakes prompt anywhere on your post, so I will just comment on the post itself. I hope this is OK! I love the concept of a laundry pack just like the dishwasher packs I currently use. They are so neat and easy and would be great to have that for my laundry too. I currently use only eco-friendly laundry soap though, so Tide would not work for me. I love the concept too. Wish Tide would come out with something good for the planet!
