I use Tide laundry detergent for my family's laundry, but I sometimes wonder if it is the best?
I confess I really haven't tried other laundry detergents besides Tide detergent, because it works well for me, so I haven't really felt the urge to switch.
I personally use Tide Free, the one without dyes and scent, because my son is allergic to the scented ones, although I personally love scented laundry detergents for the wonderful smells.
I recently did some web investigation to see if I was missing out on the "best" laundry detergent by sticking with Tide.
I found this video from Consumer Reports, below, which I thought was really interesting. It compared two versions of Tide laundry detergent, Tide Total Care (designed to keep clothes looking newer, longer), and Tide Coldwater (designed to wash clothes well in cold water), with All Small & Mighty.
The comparison was to see which of the laundry detergents was the best at keeping clothes from fading as they went through the wash multiple times.
You would assume that the Tide laundry detergent designed to do just that, Tide Total Care, would be the best at this.
The results might surprise you. They did me.
Well, were you surprised? I know I was.
I may just have to try Tide Coldwater, since it would save money to not have to use hot water to wash. However, I can't find a "free" version so my son could use it too.
Has anyone been able to find a no dye or scent version of Coldwater Tide laundry detergent?
What about you? What laundry detergent do you like, and why?
I know there can be fierce brand loyalty when it comes to laundry detergents, so don't hold back. Tell me what you really think. :)
