P&G Care for Clothing Review & #Giveaway ends 10/10

Tide #Giveaway Leapfrog and Lipgloss

It’s my favorite time of year… FALL!  Changing leaves, crisp weather, pumpkin flavored everything, and (the best part) fall FASHION. As the weather is getting cooler, the girls and I are pulling our fall clothing out of storage and getting them ready to brave the elements.

Tide Leapfrog and Lipgloss #Giveaway

I have two daughters and am a believer in hand-me-downs. My youngest inherits my eldest daughter’s clothing. I also look in resale shops for clothing pieces for my eldest daughter. This means I need my daughters’ clothing lifespans to last from season-to-season so they can get passed down.

To keep our darks dark, our colors bright, our whites white, our polka dots polka-dotty, our stripes stripey and our clothes smelling fresh and clean, I’ve been enlisting the help of Tide, Downy, and Bounce to care for our clothing.


Tide_OriginalI’m a busy mom, so I don’t get a chance to throw soiled laundry in the washing machine right away to get cleaned. Fortunately, Tide has an Acti-lift Formula that helps break-up dry stains.

A name brand is just a name-brand, right?  Not so much for me. I get sentimental about certain pieces of my clothing and the brand of Tide has been around for over 65 years, so I take comfort in that.




The scent of Ultra-Downy April Fresh liquid fabric softener brings a sense of relaxation for me because it’s been around for years.  I’ve spoken before in my blog how fragrances take me back… like a trip down memory lane or time-traveling. Every once in awhile I’ll go a little nuts (oh, hold me back!!) and grab for a new scent of fabric softener that pops up on the market, but ultimately, a spring scent like April Fresh is what I end up leaning back on.


bounce productIn addition to softening and freshening, Bounce dryer sheets help repel hair and lint from clothes. The girls actually use dryer sheets to clean the baseboards in the house as part of their weekly chores. It leaves the house smelling so good like fresh laundry and the dryer sheets do a fabulous job!  (This is a tip I picked up from Pinterest)


I rely on these products because I honestly have more important things to be concerned with than if our fall fashion is going to fall flat.

Like trying to land the perfect pose.
