I’m sharing #TideChic in my life as part of a Tide® sponsored series for Socialstars™
Travelling for Fashion Month can prove to be quite the challenge if you don’t have access to a good dry cleaner in each city or if you don’t know how to dry clean your clothes. It could be that dry cleaners aren’t common where you are, or that you just don’t know which dry cleaner is the most reliable. The last thing you want to do is drop off your expensive clothes to a stranger, in a strange city, during Fashion Month and risk never seeing them again! I’m not saying this is a common thing, but it could happen – even by accident!
Well thank God for Tide, because now you no longer need to dry clean all of your delicates. The new TIDE PODS make it possible to machine wash some of the most tricky fabrics at home or on the go. This includes delicate laces, wools and rayons.
They proved to be REALLY handy while I was away and helped keep my favourite authentic wool sweater and lace dress in great condition.
Here’s How To Dry Clean Your Clothes While Travelling:
1. Grab one Tide pod for a medium sized load, and make sure you have dry hands so you don’t dissolve them too early.
2. Toss the Tide Pod into the washing machine
3. Add clothes into the washing machine with similar fabrics
4. Turn the machine to the most delicate wash setting and push start
Voila! It’s as easy as that!
Pro Tip: I recommend you take your laundry to a local laundromat where you can supervise the wash & dry. This ensures that your clothes don’t get mixed with others and you can monitor the cycle just in case their machines are more heavy duty than others. In Paris it was easy to sneak out and grab a bite to eat in between cycles so you don’t feel like you’re wasting part of your day!
Now you can tell all your friends you know how to dry clean your clothes (sort of)!
