Cleaning & Organizing Cleaning & Organizing

What is your brand? do you ever change? For years I've only used Tide with Febreze and always wondered about Gain so one day while doing the groceries I said why not! And oh my goodness I am never going back and a plus is that it is cheaper that Tide! Apple Mango Tango detergent with the dryer sheets and Gain's Dreamy Desire fabric softener! I do laundry everyday just to smell them fresh out of the dryer! Lol DH does not mind because before I only did laundry when he did not have any underwear or work clothes.

For laundry at home, I use Sun, the one free of dyes and scent. I got a huge bottle of it for $5. The blankets have to go to the laundromat, so for that, I use the Purex 3 in 1 sheets. The extra cost of them is very well worth the convenience.

Same here; also mary kay


Quoting Deshonsmommy:

I tried selling Melaleuca but it  was not for me same thing happened when I tried selling Avon..


Quoting manamott:

I'm allergic to everything except Tide and my Melaleuca stuff.



Probably not EVERYTHING actually. But I've tried like Gain, Purex, and one or two other kids and I was allergic to all of them.

I love Tide however I will use Arm & Hammer with Oxi Clean occasionally but Tide with Bleach is the best for my family.

We live at the ballpark so our clothes are caked in tons of dirt. I have even taken to vacuuming some of our clothes before washing because I end up with mud in the washer. Would Gain work for us? I've been using Tide but I'd love to save $$!


Quoting Deshonsmommy:

For us it is not that our clothes are dirty but my husband had a strong "man smell" about him so I like heavy fragrant detergent and when I open the closet and the draws the fragrance lasts such a long time! When my son starts to discover dirt or getting dirty then maybe I will switch but until then I will just enjoy the scent.


Quoting Anniethemommy:

I find that gain doesn't clean very well for us just adds a lot of fragrance.... Ive been using Kirkland brand version of tide for years and its super cheap, but my BFF says the tide pods are amazing! but again I'm happy with the off brand tide and so Ill take her word on it...

Arm & Hammer is my best choice. I sometime buy Gain, I got a good deal on it about two weeks ago, so I bought two boxes.
