Tide Story

I ran out of laundry detergent the other day. Having 2 messy lil' boys & 1 very messy Hubby makes this a not so good thing. Not to mention the fact that it's been a muddy mess outside, the eldest child wet his bed the other night and Mommy had to walk through the calf pen in her running shoes! The laundry had piled up as it always does and since we were running out of clothes, bed sheets and shoes... off to town we went for some soap. 

We live in a rual area. Normally I'm all for buying locally unless it's laundry soap! Seriously... $25.00 for Tide, really?! So Wal-Mart is my spot for cleaning supplies. I was at Wal-Mart last week and forgot the soap... this is BAD! Now normally since we've had children Tide doesn't fit the budget so I buy Gain. I wash the clothes never paying any attention to what they smell like as long as they come out clean. 

Tide was what I brought home yesterday since it was by far the best buy. After the first of 7 loads I knew I had something special. The coveralls and poop covered shoes smelled of Mountain Fresh Air as did the laundry room! The freshly washed and dried towels smelled like Grandma according to the Eldest Son. Even the cat seemed to be enjoying the new scent, rolling happily in the loads of unwashed clothes piled on the floor!
He must love Tide too!

So I'm hooked! That's my Tide Story... what's yours?!
