Tide PODs should be kept out of reach of children
Laundry is one of those chores that you can literally let pile up until you have no choice but to tackle it. Yet, it doesn’t have to be this way. The clothes that you wear are one of the first things that people notice about you, and you can’t deny how good it feels to wear fresh, clean clothes. Fortunately, it doesn’t require a whole lot of effort to turn this critical task into one of the best parts of your week. Instead of staring with dread at your overflowing hamper, use these tips to turn laundry day into an enjoyable event.
Turn On Some Music
Everything is better with some music playing in the background. Whether you head to the laundromat or do your clothes at home, sorting and folding to the beat of some tunes is always much more fun. In fact, you can even create a playlist of your favorite upbeat songs so that you are ready to dance and sing as you wait for your clothes to finish their own spins.
Do Smaller Loads
If you procrastinate on doing your laundry until it begins spilling over on to the floor, then no wonder you feel overwhelmed. Consider breaking your laundry up into smaller loads that you do throughout the week. Knowing that all you have to do is put away your jeans or fold some sheets makes it easier to get started.
Learn Something New
Laundry time may seem like the worst time to try to learn a new skill. However, you can beat boredom by giving your mind something to do. Pick out an audiobook or watch a how-to video while you do your laundry. By the time that you finish, you’ll have learned a new skill and filled up your closet, which is a great way to increase your productivity.
Use the Right Detergent
One of the hardest parts of doing laundry is making sure that everything comes out clean. Instead of spending hours trying to scrub out surface dirt and stains, you need to let the detergent do the work. Tide has stain removers and color protectors built into the formula. When every load that you pull out of the dryer is bright and as fresh-smelling as a spring breeze, you’ll actually look forward to doing laundry. Throughout August you can pick up the Tide Bonus Pack in Walmart stores, which gives you up to 25% more Tide for the same everyday low price you’re already used to. When you combine more Tide in the Bonus Pack and the $3 off coupon, this is the best value of the year!
So, go ahead and enjoy 10x the cleaning power versus the leading bargain brand with Smart Suds™ technology, which allows the detergent to clean faster and rinse quicker, even in cold water for a deeper clean and fresher smell. Your whites will come out white and your colors will be colorful, whether it’s your first wash or your 101st. If you’re a pod user like Mr. S, you’ll love that Tide PODS® Laundry Detergent Spring Meadow Scent is super concentrated with up to 90% cleaning ingredients. Just like Tide Original Scent HE Turbo Clean Liquid Laundry Detergent each washing rejuvenates even the dingiest of clothes for brighter brights and whiter whites with its 3-in-1 technology with detergent, stain remover, and color protectors.
Fold With a Friend
Have you ever noticed how quickly time flies when you are spending time with a friend? Invite your best friend or new romantic interest over for a laundry day party. Serve some snacks while the washing machine and dryer are doing their thing. Then, enjoy some conversation as you fold your clothes. You’ll both enjoy making a deeper connection while also knocking one big chore out of the way. Is your friend too busy to hang out? Then, give them a call. They can tackle their chores at home while you do yours.
See How Fast You Can Match Socks
A little competition is an excellent way to stir up some motivation. While your friend is over, challenge them to a sock matching duel. As you scramble to match up each pair, consider adding some inspiration such as the loser has to fold the next load. If you are alone, then set an alarm and try to beat your best times. Celebrate breaking your records with a new pair of socks or a new scent of laundry detergent.
