I must admit that there was a period of time when I would say that I wasn’t a very environmentally conscious person. I was young and I had better things to do and I didn’t pay attention to stuff like that. Somebody else’s problem right? Okay fast forward 15-20 years and I’m a real grown up now, with responsibilities, kids, and a future to think about. Not just my future either…the future of my kids, their kids, and so on. Man that’s a lot to take into consideration — adulting is hard. Being a real adult also requires doing laundry; admittedly my nemesis. It’s not so much the washing and drying that I have issues with, it’s the getting things back in drawers once it’s folded…that last, but ever so important step is what determines if we live out the laundry basket for another week or if we get to open drawers like all of those put together families you see on television.
Regardless of if it comes out of a drawer or a basket though, the fact is families have a lot of laundry and we want to use products that clean it best. For me that’s always been Tide. We’ve been a Tide family for as long as I can remember. My mom swore by it so of course I knew it had to be the best so in turn I have always used it for my families laundry needs ranging from the boys’ stained jeans to the girls’ unmentionables. For those of us that are all grown up and have developed an environmentally conscious mindset, yet still have a need for reliable cleaning performance, Tide has developed a breakthrough product. NEW! Tide purclean is the first bio-based detergent with the trusted cleaning power of Tide*(*65%bio-based.) It’s actually certified by the USDA BioPreferred Program and the formula is made with 100% renewable electricity. That’s a pretty big deal right?!
If you know anything about me you know that I’m generally a skeptic. No need to reinvent the wheel if you’ve got something that works. This was a Tide product though and since I’m already a fan, I figured it couldn’t hurt to give it a try and if I love it then I’m being environmentally aware while I continue doing the things that simply have to be done. A win-win right? Now that I’ve added Tide purclean to my laundry regimen, you can’t even tell there’s a difference from the original except the color of the soap itself. It still does a great job removing stains and even better, it’s available at one of my all time fave stores – Target. Target makes getting everything you need so easy and it usually gets me in trouble because I can’t stick to my list, but right now if you pick up a bottle with he neck-hanger coupon you can get $1.00 off and give it a try yourself. It’s super easy to find in the laundry detergent aisle or the end cap to the laundry detergent aisle. You can also check your Cartwheel Mobile app to see if there are any additional savings available when you’re shopping. Currently there’s on for 5% off and runs through 7/16.
