The key to a happy marriage is having your husband do the laundry. I know it makes all the difference in ours. I hate doing laundry. I do it because I was afraid of my husband pouring the wrong things in with my clothes. He is a chemist by degree so I figured he may mix a little of this and a little of that. The tide pods are the key to his success. (I am joking my husband can do the laundry without making a mess or doing it wrong but your spouse may be laundry challenged. ) It is also a great idea for someone living in the dorm or a place with limited space.
I took the laundry challenge. I have three stain makers so I figured I might as well see if these Tide pods work.
The result? I can find the picture but it all came out! I was so excited. I swear my children go through two outfits before 9:00 am.
Innovation that Improves Daily Life
- Get Small: Tide Pods offer the power of Tide in the palm of your hand, giving you the proper dose each time you do laundry. They are compacted to use less water than traditional detergents. Tide Pods packages also weigh approximately 50% less than comparable packages of liquid detergent – making them much easier to carry and use!
- Get Multi: Tide Pods’ new, patented three chamber design helps to separate such ingredients as hard water modifiers, stain fighters, perfume and whitener so that they remain stable and potent and mix only in wash water. This allows the Tide Pods to deliver a deep-down clean in a range of conditions.
- Get Cold: 40% of Americans do their laundry in cold water more often than not in an effort to save time and money. In response to this, Tide Pods are made with a new, best-in-class film that dissolves and works effectively in all water temperatures – even in very cold water!
Tide asked me how has innovation changed your life. I have to say the greatest innovation was skype. It was very difficult for me to be away from my husband when he traveled for the Navy or for his job. The tool that saved us was skype. We would eat dinner together or watch TV. It made us feel less alone. It was a great way to keep in touch and it was very reasonably priced. We now use skype so our parents can stay in touch with our children. It allows us to share the greatest gifts we have on a weekly and sometimes daily basis.
