It’s all ended too soon, margaritas poolside, wave jumping, boogie boarding, early walks on the beach, boardwalk time, biking, touring and having a blast, and now it’s to pack up and head home.
The stank of dirty laundry is masked only by the big, plastic trash bags that are tied off and saving me from the stench of wet, sandy, sweaty and well-worn clothing. Since the kids were in charge of packing up the dirty, I have that mother’s intuition that the wet bathing suits, and towels are tossed together. I might even guess that the dirty undergarments from sweating in the sun, are mixed in with the clean laundry (if any survived).
Hello to the massive pile of laundry that is greeting my feet in the mudroom. What was a happy vacation has suddenly turned into a turbulent warfare of stinky, sandy, dirty clothing from my family? Lavishly live some tips of the laundry survival guide after a vacation to ease up your return home travel!
Laundry Survival Guide After Vacation
When I find a great product, I love to share it so today I am happy to announce that I’m sharing #Tide in my life as part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™. I only share products and tips that I feel are relevant to all of you and I am sure that any parent that has taken a family on vacation will appreciate this find!
Aren’t I the luckiest gal in the world, coming home from a relaxing vacation to a mountain of laundry? I mean, I could almost pinch myself with how ecstatic I am, but I do have something on my Team Laundry that will help me get this all cleaned up, in any temperature and clean while conditioning in one step! Drum roll please, or a pina colada, whichever you have closest! My secret laundry survival guide after vacation weapon are Tide PODS® Plus Downy laundry detergent pacs.
They Don’t Discriminate
We just got a new high-efficiency washer and I am so glad to learn that Tide PODS® works with both high efficiency and standard washers because I had these left over from my old standard washer and was not sure that I could use them up! In fact, 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.
I know that their favorite tops, bottoms, will get cleaned yet not be damaged in the wash because Tide PODS® Plus Downy protects clothes from damage in the wash! Remember for large loads you need to use 2 pacs not one.
Lavishly Undo That Wet Mess
Before that wet mess of laundry starts to ramp up the stench, even more, it’s time to just dig in and get great cleaning results fast! Take out those swim trunks, those wet towels and separate delicates from rough and rumble (towels, tees, socks).
Grab your Tide PODS® Plus Downy laundry detergent pacs because you are about to enjoy great cleaning results when you use these 4-in-1 laundry packs. Fight stains (oh the kids are famous for these untold treasures) and brighten those items that have been worn over and over and dirtied on up! Toss the laundry detergent pac into the washer FIRST then put those towels in and get ready for clean, conditioned, non-stinky ROI! Suddenly I feel myself settling in from vacation again.
Ready. Set. Repeat!
The massive pile of laundry will begin to dwindle as you attack it load by load, but if I can suggest your next load, I might suggest those clothes worn bike riding, hiking, and walking the beach and barbecuing. As these sit, they begin to inundate a smaller room with a lot of strong smell that can be best be described as a rank odor that is enough to make one gag! You are set and armed with your Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® laundry detergent pacs because they will conquer smell, stains, cleansing and brightening all in one load! Remember to always keep pacs out of reach of children.
That’s A Laundry Basket Wrap Up
Now you have done it, quite simply, you have used the laundry survival guide after a vacation to conquer to oodles of dirty laundry from your vacation and you have survived! Now it’s time for the real vacation. Call in the family and hand them each their own specialized ‘luggage basket’ tended to with love and have them put it all away! Lavishly live laundry out loud!
