Protect The Environment Along With Your Wallet When Washing Clothes

by Bill Sweeney

I’m sharing #Tide in my life as part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™. All opinions expressed are my own.

Saving more on a daily basis.

Switching all my light bulbs to LED.

Eating better, losing weight, working out more.


Installing new, energy efficient, smart appliances and motion sensing light switches.

NOTE: Do not leave Tide PODS out of it’s container. This is for illustrative purposes only!

You may be asking yourself…Self…what do all of these things have in common? I’ve mentioned a couple of times recently how things in my life have been changing, for the better. Some things are big, like I’m losing a ton of weight and feeling great. Some things are small, like I’m making sure I get to places 5 minutes earlier and I changed all the light bulbs in my house to LEDs. I’m just trying to improve by doing things better, just be a little bit better each day. After time, I know all those little changes add up to a lot in the end. 

Some improvements on this list, like installing motion sensor light switches and LED lights, are awesome and relatively simple ways to help conserve and protect the environment while preserving and protecting the old wallet by saving a little bit of money here and there. Again, be it big or small, everything on this list has made me either look better, work better, plan better, or feel better. It’s been an exciting journey and one brings new and interesting revelations almost daily. Take, for example, the house. Not only did we swap out our 60 year old oil burning behemoth recently for an efficient natural gas boiler, but we also recently upgraded to a new washer and dryer set that is super efficient and really does a fantastic job both washing and drying all of my family’s fresh gear. It’s been a great buy so far, then I decided to take it even one step further! I went cold, baby.

Did you know that washing your clothes in cold water is not only more gentle on the fabric, but also better for the environment? Indeed it is. On top of that, you are also bound to save money, since you are no longer using heat to warm the water. You’re also making those clothes go even further because washing with cold water helps to preserve the life of your clothes! Some additional awesome news is that my #1 washing buddy, Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy®, can dissolve in any temperature of water while working perfectly with both HE and standard washing machines! Yes, I did say it. I did.

I absolutely love doing laundry with Tide PODS® Plus Downy. Why you ask? Well, let’s talk about the wonders of that 4-in-1 technology – detergent, stain remover, brightener, Downy Fabric Protect. Pop them in your washing machine every time you do your laundry at any temperature and your clothes come out clean, fresh, and smelling great, all while protecting them with Downy. Pop in 2x the amount of PODS® to destroy those massive loads. Even better, the rocking HE Turbo technology provides 6x the cleaning power in half the time*. Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® is the first detergent pac that helps transform the washing machine into a safe place that cleans, conditions, protects the clothing you love. Is there anything laundry-related better then this? PLUS, while cleaning with cold water, you are helping our the environment, your clothes, and your monthly budget. That’s a deal that easily fits into my new lifestyle, no doubt.

REMEMBER… Like all household products, please keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not put in mouth or ingest. Do not get in eyes, it may irritate them.  Always close container after use.  Never handle pac with wet hands.  Store in a cool, dry place. *stain removal of 1 Tide PODS® pac vs. 6 doses of leading bargain brand liquid detergent, base variant

I LOVE Tide Pods! They get the job done well, and I don’t have to buy a ton of different laundry products.

I have not tried Tide Pods! I really need to try it because it’s a heck of a lot easier than what I do right now. I like that it helps the environment too!

I love tide! I haven’t tried the pods though! Looks like such an easy solution to laundry.

Tide Pods are so easy to use and they work great. Now I do not worry about adding to much detergent.

Lisa Bristol May 16, 2017 - 6:08 PM

Tide works so well with cold water. I am loving how easy toe pods are to use. They always get our clothes nice and clean and no stains.

I think summer is a great time to make some improvements in the household and in your life. Washing more loads in cold water is a nice, easy step to take! We love those Tide pods!

The pods are easy to use! I feel like they last me longer than the liquids since they are pre-portioned!
