Tide Pods Make Doing Laundry Easier

This post is brought to you by Tide Pods and BlogHer.

**Giveaway is now closed.  Congrats to Kim Smith! Thank you all for entering.

I hate doing laundry! Hate it with a passion. It's a hassle separating colors, washing them is time consuming, and sometimes you don't get the results that you want. That popsicle stain on your favorite shirt is still there and white T-shirts look dingy, no matter how many times you throw it in the washing machine! So, when I heard about Tide Pods, I had to give it a try.

Thank goodness I did! Tide Pods are not only detergent, but a brightener and a stain remover all in one, making washing clothes very convenient. No need to pour or spill anything--just toss one Tide Pods pac in and you're done. While it's in the washing machine, its ingredients dissolve to give you the best cleaning power.


My children's clothes need to stay bright and Tide Pods helps them stay that way. With its color-boosting ingredients that make your clothes pop, my children's clothes stay vibrant and fresh. Now my daughter's favorite neon green shirt doesn't fade and my son's graphic tees still look brand new!



Tide Pods reinvents the way you do laundry. It's simple, convenient, and you only get the best results. There's no need to settle for anything less when Tide Pods give you everything you need in one small package.   


For more information and to purchase Tide Pods, please visit their website. For a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card, tell me your biggest laundry challenge in the comments!

  1. Good morning Brandi!

    I must say, I haven't started my morning wash yet but I too am not the most robust when it comes to doing laundry:)

    I've been quite curious about those Tide Pods. After reading this post, I may just be inclined to give them a try.

    Thank you so much for sharing and have a GREAT day!

  6. Hi Brandi!

    With 6 kids I definitely need something to make laundry easier. With 5 boys I see it all from grass and dirt to spaghetti and markers. I will absolutely be giving these a try!

  7. My biggest laundry challenge is keeping up with all of the laundry and linens, and keeping it from piling up too much.

  9. I really don't mind doing laundry, it is much easier now that our 4 children are adults and do their own laundry at their own homes. I do remember having loads and loads to do at one time, especially when they were in the teen years.

    My biggest challenge is stains- I am a fan of liquid Tide but have not tried the pods.

  10. I don't mind doing laundry. It gives me a sense of completion when I fold and put things away. Yes, it's all there again in a few hours but I sort of enjoy it. Weird, right?

  21. Great giveaway! I love the pods, no measuring, just throw them in and done. My biggest laundry challenge is to actually wash our clothes without forgetting about them. I am so bad about doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love them too! I discovered them several months ago. So convenient and no spills.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My biggest laundry challenge is actually removing the stuff from the dryer. I swear I re-"dry" them like 5 times to get wrinkles out before I finally fold them. ;)

  40. My biggest challenge is with 4 boys in scouts, when they come back from a camping trip. I deal with mud,from the fishing and canoe trips. They seem to throw everything in their backpacks even the wet clothes. It is not a pleasant odor when they arrive back home. I like the ideal of the pod's, no need to pre-measure and no spills to clean up.
