It’s Backwards Day over at Works-For-Me Wednesday, in which bloggers pose a question and invite readers to respond. It’s perfect timing, because I have a quandary. A laundry quandary.
You know sometimes you’ll see advertisements for laundry detergent, and they’ll boast that they’re “free of heavy perfumes”?
I would like to know, when did heavy perfumes become a bad thing? I know, some people are allergic, but a lot of us aren’t. Furthermore, a lot of us have pre-adolescent sons, which means there is no amount of “heavy perfume” that could be too much, if you know what I’m sayin’.
I love for my laundry to have a strong, clean smell. I love for it to be so strong that you smell it when you walk in the laundry room. I love for people to walk past my kids and take a big whiff and say, “Ooo, what’s that smell?” and have them not mean it in a bad way.
I have experimented with nearly every product out there, and I can’t quite find the solution that works best. Best I can tell, it’s not so much the detergent that leaves the nice scent, it’s the fabric softener, and for best results, it’s a good idea to use liquid softener and dryer sheets. Has that been your experience? And if so, what brand? So far, I’ve found Snuggle to have the strongest scent, but it’s not my favorite scent. What do you think? Basically, do you have any tips on how I can get my laundry to smell so obnoxiously clean that you can smell it from across the street?
