What ever happened to Tide laundry detergent? This should have been written back when we were comparing products! I thought it was me. I thought that I was washing my towels wrong. Maybe my husbands work clothes were getting mixed in with my towels and some other clothes. I tried washing out the washer like K. Ray suggested in one of her articles. I tried washing the clothes in hotter water. I tried soaking and going through a second rinse. My towels and some of my other clothes still came out not smelling fresh. They actually came out smelling offensive.
After trying everything I decided to give good old Arm and Hammer laundry detergent a try. It had been years since I ventured out of my Tide territory. I have tried other detergents because they were less expensive. I would either get a rash that I spent more money on trying to cure, and then I would find out it was an allergy to the detergent, or it wouldn’t clean my clothes. I finally gave up and just continued with Tide.
I don’t know if they have changed their ingredients. I don’t know if they are less potent, they are definitely not less expensive. I don’t know if it is just me but I know that I am no longer happy with Tide! I decided it was time to just try a little experiment. After all Arm and Hammer was on sale! The magic words to the consumer. It was only $5.00 for two bottles the size of Tide which is over $6.00 now on sale. I thought what the heck go for the gold. Live a little. Don’t be a stick in the mud. Isn’t that what life is all about? Take a risk once in a while. Hey at my age you have to find excitement in any place you can get it. If that is Meijers well then so be it.
I proudly came home with my two bottles of Arm and Hammer laundry detergent. I really didn’t expect to cure my smelly towel problem but at least I got a bargain and I didn’t figure it would be any worse. It was amazing! My towels actually smelled good. Maybe it was the fabric softener? No I use that all the time. So I tried washing my husbands’ work clothes. They didn’t have that tell tale oil smell in them. I washed more clothing and they all smelled great. It is a miracle. I bless you Arm and Hammer laundry detergent.
I am now on my second bottle of Arm and Hammer and my clothes still smell fresh and look clean. I may be crazy or senile but I swear by it. I don’t have any disgusting, aggravating allergy rashes from it either. So I will swear by it. Let me know if any of you have had any problems with Tide or maybe you would like to try a little product testing too.
