What brand of laundry detergent do you use and why?

Mine is TIDE all the way. It is one of the more expensive ones so I use coupons and wait for sales.

  • Tide Free, I started to use it when I had my first child and he is now 5. I have a 2 DD and 10month DD also, so why use anything else? I know it works!

  • Tide for me as well, and Downy fabric softener. This is one thing I just won't compromise on, regardless of budget.

  • Anything that is perfume and dye free. All is the cheapest that I can buy. 96 loads for $6.99.

  • I'd love to use Tide.... but I stick with Arm & Hammer. It's both a generally good detergent and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

  • I always use tide too
    Even if the others are cheaper, tide does a good job.
    I would rather get it done right the first time!
