The Multiplication Principle of Laundry

I am sure most of you have heard the story of how Christ multiplied 5 loaves and 2 fish to feed the multitude of 5,000. My 3 boys and girl can easily take a small laundry pile one day and transform it into Mt. Kilimanlaundrio or Mt. 4Everwashtheclothes or even Mt. Denali-of-laundry (because I am in denial of the amounts of laundry I do weekly!)

That being said I am here to share my story of laundry soap… and mama knows best. I grew up on Tide. I cannot recall any other laundry soap entering my home as a growing kid, teen or college student. Mom always used Tide.

When I look at this ad... it could so easily be my big brother and me. I had cute pig tails, and he always annoyed me! My mom even had a baby buggy like that for us!

I can be the blond in this ad too! If you've ever done laundry for the Marines coming out of the field... you know just how tough it is to get them clean!

I guess I better finish my story... where was I ... awwww yes!

Mom used Tide, so I used Tide… until someone suggested that I use another 'said brand'. They said it worked better and was less expensive. Since I was doing my deed to help the family budget I bought this other 'said brand'. I used this 'said brand' for over 6 months. Yes, I may have saved a few bucks, but it cost me in the long run. My clothes are dingy, and do not hold that fresh clean smell for very long. And yes I use fabric softener, dryer sheets and still no fluff, no sweet smelling sheets. My towels resembled crumpled cardboard… I was not happy.
So being the prodigal daughter I returned to the ways of my youth, the way I was trained up to go… I go with Tide. I’ve also discovered Tide Stain Release 2 in-wash booster! It has revived my clothes, brought them back from the dead dingy musty smelling hole they fell into! I am forever grateful.
I am sorry mom, I’ve returned from sinful ways I’ll forever be a Tide Girl and train up my herd to be faithful to the Tide.

Maybe I'll buy one of these t-shirts. It supports a good cause and I know the clothes will get clean!
Here's to You... Hoping you can get caught up on all your loads!

You are so funny! I'm a Tide girl too! Took me a long time to realize it but once I did I have never turned back!

I tried the other brand you were using and found the same results, that's why I went back to your brothers brand and I have found it as good as Tide and I know I have only 2 loads a week so I buy for a year at a time.Mom
