Laundry is one of those unavoidable, mundane daily tasks I have to face being a mom of a family of five; Three kids and two adults can accumulate a LOT of laundry. From simply living to accidental spills, loads of laundry are almost a daily thing in my house. Maybe we should consider buying a second washer and dryer set maybe? ;) Just kidding! 

Laundry isn't so bad when you're using the right detergents and softeners. When you have to throw back items because the stains aren't coming out or they just don't smell fresh - then there's a problem.

Right now we purchase different kinds of detergents, one for the kids and grown-ups and one special for our baby's sensitive skin. We don't want to use anything with perfumes or dyes that might cause her irritation just from wearing a cute outfit! 

We now have a solution to having to use multiple detergents - Introducing softness for sensitive skin with new Free & Gentle/Free & Sensitive line of laundry detergents and softeners from P&G




Wash with Tide Free & Gentle Liquid laundry detergent, specially designed for sensitive skin. It contains no dyes, chemicals or fragrances and you can bet your laundry will come out as clean as ever. Gentle enough to use on clothes for baby's too. 

Soften with Ultra Downy Free & sensitive liquid Softener, experience the softness of Downy without any dyes, perfumes or worries. Ultra Downy Free & Sensitive is the leading "free" liquid softener that is also dermatologist tested so that you can enjoy your fabric softer, fresher and with fewer wrinkles. 

Protect with Bounce Free & Sensitive dryer sheets. Enjoy the softness and freshness of dryer sheets without dyes or perfumes, like your sensitive skins BFF!

I love the new Free & Gentle/Free & Sensitive line of laundry detergent. Not only do they smell awesome and do the job but I don't have to worry about buying a separate detergent for the baby clothes anymore either! 

Laundry facts:

Did you know that during World Wars I & II, an animal and vegetable fat shortage triggered the creation of detergent surfactants. Proctor & Gamble invented Tide in 1943! 

Surfactant molecules have two parts. One is "water loving" and the other is "water hating". The water-loving (hydrophobic) part breaks the surface tension of water. The water-hating (hydrophobic) part is attracted to oil and grease in soils, loosening and removing them from fabrics. 

Detergents usually contain more than one type of surfactant to address the needs of removing certain types of soils and cleaning different types of fabrics. 

Other ingredients in laundry detergent can include: Fluorescent whitening agents (to help maintain whiteness or brightness) Enzymes (to help break down complex soils such as blood and grass) Fragrances (to help clothes smell clean).
