Top 7 Laundry Tips To Help #ProtectClothesYouLove

I have to work hard doing the laundry for our family. And y'all know it's never-ending.  So I find a balance of getting it done so that I won't become frustrated.

Laundry is like tax right?

Laundry is so much more than just getting things clean. It's so important to use products that will protect your clothing and other items.  As a family with one income, we need to be able to keep our clothes looking new for much longer and also be able to wear them!

I love when I can smell the fresh clean scent in my laundered clothing, bedding, and towels, days or weeks after they are done.

For instance, it feels so very good when you have taken a bath and get ready to dry off and your towel feels so very smooth and smells so lovely! What is the first thing you do?

Bury your face into it right?  LOVE IT!

And honestly, I've been using a very cheap brand when getting a fabric softener conflict with my grocery budget.

However, over the past week, I got the chance to try out the Downy Fabric Conditioner and our whole family loves it!

Just opening the bottle and I am delighted by the smell! When I add it to the rinse cycle, I get so excited because I can't wait to smell the clothing while moving them over to the dryer.  Trust me, even that is a good experience with this lovely smell!

When I remove the laundry from the dryer, I almost want to fold it all.

I'm teaching the kids to fold their own laundry, so I had to keep strong on that count.  But the Downy Fabric Conditioner definitely knows how to condition and gives me hope for our clothing keeping for much longer through all the washes!
There's a list that I share with them each time we do laundry. I hope it will help them as they get older and have to take care of their own family.


The favorite thing to wash is my daughter's sweater. She loves to wear this top. She had picked it out since she saw it at the store and loved it. It's really soft.  Downy Fabric Conditioner will help to keep it's color going strong, gives it a yummy smell, and make it feels even softer for her as she cuddles into it.  She squeals when it's clean!

The smell is also not over-powering, which is very good for my allergies. I would not want to dissolve into a sneezing fest.

You really have to try the Downy fabric Conditioner, at least once! It's easy to find at Walmart! I shop at Walmart all the time because it's agreeable with my budget and I can get most of what our family needs for our household.
They do have very comparable prices and great deals and even cash back if you so desire!

And if you love black clothing like I do, then you definitely need to protect them!

In the meantime, I'm enjoying care from this fabric softener for our family laundry.
