I’m sharing #Tide in my life as part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™
Some of you may or may not have noticed that I have a serious collection of blankets. Over my years of blogging you have probably seen your fair share of throws and are wondering what the heck I need so many for. Well, I don’t and I have learned to downsize. However blankets give me a sense of comfort and the feeling of being at home no matter where I am. The softer they are the better!
Apparently this is a trait I picked up from my father because when we were cleaning out the house, we found a collection of soft blankets! Funny how things like that work. 🙂
Anyways. If you have invested in any faux-fur throws, you probably know how challenging they are to clean! I say invest because they are usually pretty pricey and that means we don’t want to wreck them! I pulled this blanket out of storage yesterday after I thought I had lost it forever. Naturally it needed a good wash, so here’s what I did! This practice can be applied to your delicate clothes as well!
How To Keep Your Soft Things Soft:
1.) Always wash in cold water
2.) Always wash the item on its own, especially if it’s a blanket
3.) Use protective detergent. I use the Tide PODS plus Downy!
4.) Dry on low or no heat!
When it comes to detergent, I’ve found Tide to be the best for all of my clothes. The Tide PODS plus Downy 4in1 is great because its perfect for delicates. It also comes with Downy Fabric Protect so your soft things stay soft! The Tide PODS plus Downy also come with a stain remover and it doesn’t cause your fabrics to dull over time. Just remember, like all detergents they should remain out of the reach of children. 🙂
