Tide Coldwater Review + Giveaway! - CLOSED - Winner : Night Owl Mama


Thank you all for your time and dedication in entering this giveaway. 

The winner is Night Owl Mama


Congratulations! I've sent you an email







***********************************************
April was a celebration of Earth Month and Proctor & Gamble were part of this event in promotion of their Tide Coldwater and Target re-usable shopping bag.

Tide Coldwater is specially formulated for cold water conditions to save consumers energy and money. Tide Coldwater users can reduce energy bills while clothes get a deep clean, even in cold water.  

Tide Coldwater is one of three sponsors of special Earth Month reusable Target store shopping bags, made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles.

I received two one-use sachets of Tide Coldwater and a reusable shopping bag for review.  I am a mom. I am the only one who does laundry in this house, so I was definitely excited to try Tide since I rarely use this brand because of the price tag and wanted to know if it was better than the detergent I was already using.

I love my laundry clean and smelling fresh and this is what I got out of Tide Coldwater.  I have been using cold water to do laundry for quite awhile now to save on energy, and I think I'm either not buying the right detergents for cold water use or Tide just works a little better. I would love to continue using Tide since the two little sachets were not enough to form  a strong opinion on the differences, but as I said before, they are out of my budget range, especially now when work is questionable for my husband in regards to the happenings in the gulf.  So while I'll still put them on my grocery list for a splurge, I am not sure it will be a regular go-to purchase.  

I am collecting reusable bags so this is a bonus for me and it's pretty cute too. I saw a man with the same bag at my BIL's state championships and I'm inclined to think he either got it straight from Target, or his wife is a blogger :)

You can also win the same prize pack that I received of Tide Coldwater.
