I am in charge of laundry at our house. It comes with the territory of being a stay-at-home dad who also home schools my kids. Living in Texas, we are able to spend a lot of time learning things outside all year round. And that means we all get dirty. That’s ok, as it is a part of the experience of how we learn about our natural environment. We also spend time gathered around our fire pit reading in cooler weather. I try to start the laundry first thing in the morning before the kids are gearing up for their lessons. That means dirty clothes that also smell of fire have been sitting around overnight. They can be ripe by the time I get to toss them into the washing machine.
Triple Threat Power of Tide PODS Plus Downy
I am a fairly casual dresser during the day, but I do like good quality, comfortable athletic/leisure wear. And, my girls are partial to the ever-popular yoga attire. The trouble with some of these fabrics is that they come with a litany of care instructions so as not to ruin them. I don’t have the patience or the time to wash them separately anymore. My new solution for our laundry issues is to play it safe with the Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® laundry detergent. The 4-in-1 technology cleans, removes stains, brightens, and softens fabric all in one.
Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® laundry detergent pacs gently clean our clothes and soften them with Downy Fabric Protect. Our clothes smell great, feel great, and they are free of dirt, grass stains, and the smell of wood smoke. My “high maintenance” fabrics are cleaned, conditioned, and protected from damage. And, the pods work really well in our large capacity, high-efficiency machine. For larger and really dirty loads I use 2 pods. They dissolve in either hot or cold water.
Tide PODS® HE Turbo technology provides 6x the cleaning power in half the time. Here are the product details that can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
- Tide PODS® Plus Downy laundry pacs wash without the worry

When the whole family is around I can do multiple loads in one day. That is 7 people I am doing laundry for. With the standard bargain detergent I used to rely on, I was going through bottles quickly. Plus, I had to add fabric softener, which cost me extra. It really wasn’t a bargain in the end. I am happy with my decision to give Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® a try. It seems to be the right solution for our family’s needs.
Like all household products, keep out of children.
