BBS Reviews: Tide Pods Free and Gentle
by Christina Brown
I still remember bringing Cadence home for the first time and being clueless about how to properly care for this little human being. I now had to not only worry about making sure she was fed, burped and well-rested but I also had to make sure she was clothed! I'd only ever been responsible for dressing myself. Aside from making sure she was decked in the latest baby fashions, I also had to make sure she wore clothing that was comfortable and that I used products that were gentle on her newborn skin. Once my first few bottles of Dreft had run out, I took recommendations from Cadence's Dad to actually spring for a less expensive and equally effective alternative for baby's skin - the Tide Free + Gentle detergent line. Not only was Tide Free + Gentle cost effective, but it worked well on keeping Cadence's skin from any allergic reactions and it was so good on price, I would even use it to wash my own clothes!
Being able to wash all our family loads together was such a time-saver for me.I thought I was living the life - found a smart and budget-friendly way to do laundry for baby and I was happy. But you don't really know time-saving until you've tried Tide Pods. Tide Pods are truly revolutionary. It may be a minuscule amount of time but pouring and measuring detergent takes time! With Tide Pods you literally eliminate an entire laundry step. No spills, no measuring. Just pop the pod into the washing machine, add clothes and water and voila! For mompreneurs like myself who are short on time, Tide Pods Free and Gentle really is a genius idea. And what's even better is that they come in the Free + Gentle formulation as well - perfect for new moms like myself who still have to worry about baby's sensitive skin.
What about you? What time-saving laundry tips have you learned since becoming a mom?
