We get dirty here at the Buck ‘n Run Ranch, really dirty. I haven’t found a way to muck a stall or clean a chicken coop without getting my clothes dirty. I have tried many brands of laundry detergent but always find my way back to Tide. The clothes just come out cleaner. Until moving to the country, I just poured liquid Tide into the machine with abandon, never measuring. Living in the country necessitates measuring. We have a well with hard water and a septic system. Adding the right detergent, in the right amount is crucial to maintaining our septic system. Concerns are:
- Using too much soap or detergent can cause problems with the septic system.
- Inexpensive detergents may contain excessive amounts of filler and some of the fillers can be clay that is used to actually seal soils. The best solution is to use a liquid laundry detergent, which seldom have clogging fillers that may harm a septic system.
When I spotted the Tide pods in the supermarket I was all over them! No measuring is involved. You just toss one in with the clothes. With the urge to add just a little extra out of the equation, I am sure I am saving money as well. My favorite fragrance is Spring Meadow. I keep a small bowl of the pods on the top of my washing machine within easy reach. The scent from the pods works as an air freshener in my laundry room. This comes in particularly handy since my laundry room and guest bathroom share the same space!
