Laundry is one of those chores that I don’t much mind. There is something therapeutic about folding laundry and breathing in that fresh, just cleaned scent. I would much rather wash clothes than say… scrub the commode or dust. Oh, how I dislike dusting and the sneezing fits that soon follow. When it comes to doing laundry I am a bit of a stickler about a couple of things…

Don’t let it pile up. I try to stick to washing a load each day. This keeps the chore of laundry much more manageable and less intimidating.

Use Laundry products you trust and save time by having extras on hand. Tide laundry detergent is something I have used for many years. It has gently washed my family’s clothes for as long as I can remember. When they were little, I used Tide laundry soap to wash my children’s school clothes, team uniforms and ballet costumes. Now I am washing my grandchildren’s clothes with Tide. When you find something that works well, I believe in sticking with it.

Do you have a any laundry tips? I would love to hear them!

I have more recently become familiar with Gain Flings. The three-in-one single-use flings include 50% more scent, an oxi boost and the freshness of Febreze, for long-lasting freshness and cleaning power. Those little laundry packs have a lot going for them, and are so convenient. I like them.

Thanks to the great prices at Family Dollar, my laundry room is currently stocked with Tide Simply Clean & Fresh, Tide Plus A Touch of Downy, Tide Plus Bleach Alternative, and the new Gain Flings.

For those particularly strong odors, and also for my linens which I like to have especially nice and soft, I like to use Tide + A Touch of Downy. It makes clothes feel soft & fresh with an wonderfully upgraded scent.

I simply couldn’t do without the Tide + Bleach Alternative for keeping whites extra white and bright. It removes dinginess and gets whites whiter.

Tide Simply Clean & Fresh – Offers a dependable clean and superior mal-odor removal with 2X baking soda power. I love this particular laundry detergent for my every day laundry.

    I use All Free and Clear detergent because my youngest has sensitive skin and it cleans well.

  2. tiffany f says

    We use a little baking soda with our laundry. Seems to leave things a little fresher and keep colors brighter longer.

  3. says

    USING CHEAP DETERGENTS NEVER MAKES SENSE. THEY DONT DO THE SAME JOB & YOU END UP USING MORE FOR LESS CLEAN. COLD WATER WASHES JUST AS WELL AS WARM & THE ONLY REASON TO WASH IN HOT IS TO SANITIZE BUT SOAP ALREADY DOES THAT FOR YOU & SO DOES THE DRYER SO WHY WASTE THE MONEY. DONT USE ANYMORE SOAP THAN IS RECOMENDED. IF YOU HAVE TO PRE TREAT USE FROM THAT AMOUNT & SET THAT LOAD ASIDE AND DO ANOTHER WHILE IT SITS ALWAYS REMEMBER IF YOU PUT TOO MANY CLOTHES IN YOU DONT CLEAN WELL & YOU DONT RINSE OUT THE SOAP SO YOU GET RASHES FROM THE LEFT OVER SOAP IN YOUR CLOTHES.

  4. Crystal says

    I put a dryer sheet in where my extra blankets and sheets are stored so they smell fresh when you get to use them.

  5. Ali Goff says

    The only real tip I know is to rub dish soap into a stain as soon as it happens; always does the trick.

  6. says

    I haven’t tried any of those Tide products but would love, to, I’ve always had good experiences with Tide. I do most of our wash on cold, with the exception of my youngests who I do on hot for dirt and odor.

  7. says

    I don’t have any great laundry tips but I do only use cold water. I never really separate colors so using cold water helps prevent the colors from bleeding :)

  8. says

    Tide is one of my favorite brands. As for laundry tips, I always wash in cold water to avoid shrinkage. Furthermore, I now refuse to put jeans in the dryer to avoid shrinkage (I had to learn the hard way).

  9. Barbara Mc / Whenihave Time says

    Always pretreat grease/stains with a stain stick – will work for several days before the wash and leave clothes stain free.

  10. says

    I use a good detergent and cold water. Here in TX our pipes are warmed up anyway so the cold water setting usually is luke warm anyway, LOL!

  11. Marti Tabora says

    My tip is to wash in cold water, it really does get clothes just as clean and it saves money too.

  12. Jennifer T. says

    My best tip is to treat stains early and to not dry the clothes if the stains haven’t come out in the wash as the heat will set it.

  13. Cindy T says

    I wash everything in cold except I wash whites in hot. I also put all of my delicates in lingere bags & wash on delicate cycle. Thank u for the chance to win. :)

  14. says

    We wash pretty much everything in cold, other than towels. Great way to save on heating, and I think it helps clothes last longer. We also love using the pods – like those Gain flings! It’s less messy.

    Also, keep a garbage can next to your washer and dryer so you don’t have to lug around dryer sheets, lint, and anything that you find in pockets!

  15. Sarah Elyce says

    I wash everything in cold water besides sheets, towels, and blankets. I use half a dryer sheet and don’t notice a difference. I also like to keep up with it instead of letting it pile up but never run a load that isn’t full unless I absolutely have to, adjusting the water level.

  16. says

    I always do smaller loads of laundry with how water and a touch extra of laundry soap, Everything turns out a little brighter and is easier to dry in one load as well.

  17. Georgia Beckman says

    To freshen up your towels (sometimes they hold their stink even after being washed), wash in hot water with 1 c vinegar & 1/2 c baking soda. I also only use vinegar for softener in my towels because I find when I use traditional softeners they seem slick & don’t absorb water well.

  18. Pam Gurganus says

    My laundry tip is I always launder according to the instructions on the tag. It really does make a difference!

  19. Amanda Alvarado says

    Use vinegar in the wash cycle to help combat odors naturally. Use it in the rinse cycle for a natural fabric softener!

  20. Gail S. says

    I use cold water to save energy and cost on electric bill. Using hot and warm water will run your bill higher. I also use stain remover to soak and baking soda for fresher clothes and helps with static cling in the dryer.

  21. judy watts says

    I always wash my Winter Blankets in all color bleach powder and soak them in the washer for 20 minutes with the dry bleach and detergent to keep them fresh in storage.

  22. says

    This isn’t really a secret tip or anything, but I always put a few dryer sheets in my drawers to keep my clothes smelling fresh and clean.

  23. Bonniep says

    Use old hair conditioner as a fabric softener Just put some on a clean cloth and throw in the dryer with wet clothes

  24. Margie says

    To save electricity, I put the towels in the dryer for a short time to soften them, then hang them on the line. Thanks for this giveaway.

  25. Valarie Davenport says

    I couldn’t live without Shout Advanced Spray Gel and Gain Flings for my laundry. Oh and Downy Unstoppables too…need them for the smelling good for a long time

  26. says

    Always zip up zippers. Unzipped zippers cause wear down of fabrics wearing out your clothes faster. Secondly, If you wash t-shirts with transfers on them inside out your design will last longer. Last but not least buy Tide at Family Dollar because it will save you money and get your clothes cleaner!

  27. Shannon says

    Don’t us cheap detergent, use Tide or name brand. Also, as soon as you get a stain on your shirt place detergent on it so it doesn’t set.

  28. joni says

    I keep different basket for colors, whites, jeans, and towels, then everything is already separated when washing close.

  29. Lacey says

    I really don’t have any tips, but after reading everyone else’s I’ve learned alot! I think it will be quite helpful!

  30. Lorayne Gothard says

    I found that at times my laundry will smell weird, so I add straight vinegar in the bleach compartment and that freshens the smell.

  31. Karen Drake says

    I pre treat my stains with a bar of ivory soap, I simply dampen and apply the soap then scrub the fabric until the stain is gone.

  32. Deb C says

    Use a short wash cycle if you clothes are only lightly soiled . It helps clothes last longer and look better.

  33. Patrice says

    I do a lot of laundry. I just bought some detergent at Family Dollar this week, since they had a good price on it. To keep towels smelling fresh, add some baking soda or distilled white vinegar (or both) to the laundry.

  34. Sandy Coyle Mattox says

    Presoak any hard to get out type stains. Use can use your detergent and just rub it in (if it is liquid) a little while before starting your load.

  35. Nancy says

    My laundry tip: Treat clothing stains promptly, as any delay will just make the stain harder to remove. Also research your type of stain and how best to remove it.

  36. Mia Dentice Carey says

    I soak/pre-treat all stains….I also tend to DRY my close at night especially during the summer time!

  37. Beverly Metcalf says

    I use Dawn dish detergent to remove stains from clothing. It works great on most stains and is really good on grease stains. Just rub a little into the stained area and wash and most stains will be gone.

  38. Bryan E. says

    Thanks for the giveaway…we always try to pre-soak our laundry for 30-45 minutes, if time allows; gives detergent time to work on tough stains.
