Reinventing My Laundry Regimen with Downy + Giveaway *spon
When we moved to NYC, we went from using a very standard and familiar set of washing machines. I knew exactly which settings to use on the various different loads that our family goes through, especially my delicate, pricey blouses and Beau’s cozy baby clothes. We quickly had to get used to reserving a few hours and the 8 flights in the elevator with three kids to our building’s laundry room. That was never easy, but the high-efficiency, industrial sized machines were an even more challenging learning curve.
I ruined more clothes than I care to remember, and by the time we moved last month I had just barely perfected my system so that our clothes came out halfway decent. Now that we’re back in California and using (my mother’s) machines for the time being, my comfort level and trust in the machines and our products is back to normal. One thing I hadn’t tried before this campaign was Downy fabric softener and Downy UnStoppables scent boosters-and I can honestly say that our clothes are softer and smell better than ever.
I took the Downy Difference challenge and tested the products on the t-shirt that they provided in the kit before using everything on our personal items. The tee came out softer and fresher without the color or shape fading whatsoever.
I’m particular to the scent of my clothing and the clothes that I put on my children, so I reserve the UnStoppables for our bed linens and towels-they have made such a pleasant difference, and combined with our new-found ocean air it’s truly heavenly to wake up to.
The Downy liquid softener is actually easier and fuss free (I am always finding those dryer sheets in my pant legs and the kid’s shirt sleeves), and I am always appreciative of things that will make my life-especially laundry- a little easier without sacrificing the quality. When it comes to my kid’s laundry, I’d rather them run naked than sit in crunchy, uncomfortable clothing.
* Downy helps your clothes stay newer for longer by preserving your fabrics more over detergent alone.
* Downy contains scent molecules called perfume micro-capsules (PMCs) that provide long-lasting scent.
* Downy contains softening molecules called “BFA” that deposit on the surface of fabric to soften clothes to make them more touchable, wearable and enjoyable.
* Downy helps to modify fabric surface properties and prevent static cling.
I’m super excited to be giving away a Downy Difference Kit to one of you, complete with everything you see in the above photo, as well as a $50 gift card to buy your own clothes to test with.
