Tide Coldwater Challenge


I switched to washing in cold water several months ago in my effort to save energy. However, my hubby insists that whites be washed in hot water.
I was excited to get the chance to give Tide Coldwater a try, mostly on the whites. I've washed 3 loads of whites in cold water, using the Tide Coldwater. SSssshhhhh don't tell my hubby....I haven't told him, nor do I plan to.

I've also washed loads of colors with the Tide Coldwater. I love knowing that Tide is one of the best brands of laundry soap out there and that my clothes are being taken care of.
My daughter just bought 2 new pairs of pants, one purple and one red. I put both in the washer, not paying attention to the other colors I was putting in. There was no bleeding of colors at all.

Admittedly I've not been a user of Tide, but several of my friends will use nothing else. My thought has always been that it was just too expensive for my budget. I was surprised when I did check prices to find that is only a couple dollars or so higher than the brands I usually buy. Proctor & Gamble always has Tide coupons out and it does go on sale. Recently it was on a good sale at my grocery store. Great price and the current coupon was $2 off. I was disappointed to not find the Coldwater formula for sale at my store, but I did take advantage to try another formula that I hadn't ever tried before.

I am including before and after shots of one of the loads of whites I did using the Tide Coldwater.

Disclaimer: I received a full size bottle of Tide Coldwater from SheSpeaks as part of their Tide Coldwater program. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions are my own.
