During my recent trip to Canada, I slipped on a patch of black ice. I laughed it off in the moment, but as the pain rapidly increased over the next few days, I realized I may have done more damage than I initially thought. As it turns out, I was right. When I made it back to Colorado, I went straight to see a doctor and was informed I have a fracture.
Now my arm is out of commission until further notice. This makes it difficult – if not impossible – to do many of the chores I’d typically tackle around the house, like loading the dishwasher, sweeping, and shoveling the snow. Another chore I can’t manage with only one arm? Washing, drying and folding the laundry. Speaking of laundry, luckily for me, I have teens who can help with that, and they have Tide PODS to help them with their new duty.
Naturally, after a vacation, there is always quite a lot of laundry to get through. With the kids all back in school, there is also a bit extra. Fortunately, my teens have taken over laundry duty for as long as it takes for this to heal up – and who knows, maybe longer! While they aren’t too thrilled at being responsible for handling the laundry, I see it as a good learning experience for them.
Here’s an easy way you can get your teens to tackle laundry day easier and quicker.
Stock Up On Detergent
I’ve even made the job easy for them by stocking the laundry room with Tide PODS. As you already know, I’m a big fan of Tide laundry detergent. It was my mother’s favorite detergent brand growing up, and it’s now become my go-to brand for tackling my family’s toughest stains. Ever since Tide PODS came out, I’ve made the switch, and I’ve been nothing but impressed.
My teens used to make a mess any time I asked them to wash a load of laundry, leaving detergent dripping all over the bottle. I’ve also questioned whether or not they used enough soap more than once. Thanks to Tide PODS, those problems are gone. All you do is toss one or two into the washer, depending on load size, start the cycle, and let the POD work its magic! I don’t have to rely on my teens to measure out detergent or wipe down the bottle when they’re finished.
I don’t just love Tide PODS because they’re convenient. They’re also incredibly effective. Many people think they’re just regular laundry detergent sealed in a dissolvable pouch, but that isn’t the case at all. Tide PODS contain a new improved 4-in-1 solution consisting of concentrated Tide laundry detergent, extra odor fighters, extra stain fighters, and built-in pre-treaters. My laundry has never looked cleaner – or smelled better!
I love picking up PODS at Walmart, because they have great everyday low prices. Plus, ordering them online makes life so much easier. I’ve made it super easy for you to add some to your Walmart order – just click the button next to the product below! Then you can have it shipped directly to your door (free with a $35 minimum order), or schedule a time to pick up your order at your nearest store for free. This really saves me time and energy!
Keep PODS out of reach of children.
