  • We use Kirkland brand free and clear stuff (from Costco). That's it. Well, I sometimes pour this odoban stuff in my middle two kids' laundry because they wet the bed and all their stuff smells. It works pretty good.
    I don't use bleach or fabric softner. The only purely white clothing we have are socks, school shirts and undershirts but bleach weakens the fabric so I don't use it. My dad pours tons of it in his whites and you can smell it all through the house.
    I also don't use dryer sheets except on towels and the kids' fleece blankets (otherwise I get shocked like crazy trying to get them out...they hold quite a charge).

  • We just use All Free and Clear too, but I love your tribute to Billy Mays each time you do laundry.

  • As opposed to the detergent I use on my clothes when I'm not doing laundry?

    Sorry, I couldn't help it.

  • I just bought Tide with Downy in it for the first time ever. It smells delicious!! I also add Downy fabric softener. I love the way my clothes smell. When I fold it I keep smelling it - weird, I know!
