Around these parts, Atala is one in charge of laundry. He decides on the detergents to use and sorts and loads the clothes in the washer. I sometimes help to unload, put in the dryer, fold away, that sort of thing. I couldn't help noticing when some weeks ago when I was folding some of my light-colored clothes that they looked brighter and so I asked. Turns out, he picked up a new detergent for the light colors since our supermarket had run out of our usual brand. The new one was the Tide Plus Bleach Alternative.
I also noticed that from them, the load for the whites had a fresher scent than that for the darker colors. It is a scent I like and funny enough, my siblings remarked on it during my trip home. They asked the air freshener I used in my closet, or if I had packed in some scent pellets with the clothes in my boxes. I didn't have to think hard to tell them it was the laundry detergent :)
My plan on coming back was how to convince Atala to also change the other brand we use for the dark colors to Tide. I knew I would be facing some challenge because Tide is a bit more expensive than our usual.
So you can imagine my excitement when Blogher contacted me and asked that I partner with BlogHer and P&G to spread the word about their new online shopping website with the clause that I will be receiving a small commission from all sales generated through my widget.
I wasn't as excited about the commission - though I'd love it if you shop through mine :) - as I was that there were money saving deals involved! Shoppers get 10% off through August and free shipping on $25 carts, whoppee! I'll certainly be taking advantage of the estore because in addition to Tide, they have available some of our regular personal care brands including, Olay, Head and Shoulders, Covergirl, and Oral-B.
I want to use this opportunity to encourage my readers in the US to check out the products on the new P&G online store by clicking the Tide Coldwater widget below. Then come back and share your favorite P&G product in the comments, and to let me know if you will be taking advantage of any of the awesome deals. A reminder -
