Sweaty gym shorts, dirty work clothes, my oldest son’s baseball uniform…there are some clothes that I know are going to end up extra smelly before they finally end up in the washing machine. And while I would love to have enough time to wash my own sweaty gym top or my fiance’s dirt-encrusted work overalls every single day, that’s just not realistic. Until now, I’d just resigned myself to sometimes having to deal with clothes that stink. But now, Tide and Downy have come up with some fabulous new products to save my nose!
I’ve been a fan of Downy In-Wash Scent Booster for years now. The Lush variety is my personal must-have, and I especially love using it for my sheets and bedding. The sweet hint of vanilla when I climb into bed makes for very sweet dreams. But while Downy In-Wash Scent Booster leaves a delicious long-lasting hint of fragrance in fabrics, it doesn’t actually control odours in any way. And there are times I need a product that does more than just masks unpleasant smells. Some of our clothing seems to start stinking again almost as soon as it’s out of the washer, whether because of the heavy use it gets or because of reblooming scents trapped within the fabric fibres themselves.
That’s where the new Tide and Downy products available at Walmart come in! The perfect scent-eliminating regime starts with Tide PODS plus Febreze Odor Defense. The 4-in-1 laundry detergent pac cleans dirt, residue and surface stains while removing odours with the power of Febreze. For those especially stinky clothes, adding Tide Odor Rescue with Febreze Odor Defense, an in-wash booster that helps eliminate dirt and odours trapped in fabric fibres, helps eliminate the dreaded rebloom.
