As we head back to school, I’m looking to looking at my school supply stash and see what lines up with the lists, and then I realize WOW, I have three kids going back to school again this year and I’m still working on getting things in my house streamlined. To help me prepare for back to school, I rely on trusted household products from P&G Household Needs.
This year it means one going into middle school, one into 4th grade and one in college. With some rambunctious tween boys and another kiddo who is more of an adult now (when did that happen?), I am learning the importance of keeping clothes clean and fresh.
Starting the school year off right
We all have our daily routines. Things that have to get done, and things we try to get done. One thing that I know is easy to fall behind on is laundry. With the preparing for back to school, I shop sales as they come and then have to not only do daily laundry, but pre-wash all the new school clothes!
Keeping clothes fresh and clean, not straight off the rack
I watched a mini documentary on sweatshops and was horrified, And then, even with clothes made in humane conditions, I realize the importance of pre-washing clothes before wearing them. Sure someone may have tried them on in-store, but they’ve also traveled the world usually, the fabric had to be made, and cut and packaged and… well, you get the point! So, I’m adjusting my schedule to add in some extra washes in August before school starts, since I want my kids to head back in school in style and in fresh clothes.
With Tide Advanced Power, there’s no question that my kids’ clothes are clean. I can use it for the pre-wash, and then when they come home full of everything kids get into, I know that Tide Advanced Power can clean it right up.
Then, I like Downy Fresh Protect because with pre-washing, I’m getting things in order. But clothes can lose that fresh scent right after washing, but with Downy Fresh Protect, the fresh scent works like deodorant for your clothes!
We also really love the fresh Spring scent of Downy April Fresh! I do know clothes are exposed to a lot of pilling, stretching, fading and fuzz during laundry time. But with Downy April Fresh, I know that they are protected from all of those!
Loads of dishes!
Oh and finally, let’s not forget that with school being back in session, at least I’ll be doing fewer loads of dishes. At least until activities start up and their appetites surge again!
But right now, with them home, or packing lunches for camps, it seems as though I’m always doing dishes. At least Dawn Platinum Advanced Power keeps my dishes clean!
And yes, I mostly buy my P&G Household Needs products in bulk at Costco!
Now that it’s time to prepare for Back to School, what are your tips to getting that new schedule underwraps?
