I know what you are talking about! I’ve felt the same way about a lot of people’s laundry. I wish it was more socially acceptable to just go up and ask what they use. My favorite is Arm & Hammer + Oxi Clean detergent. It works well, and leaves my clothes smelling good, though not as good as I’ve smelt on other people.

We actually use generic Target brand dye and perfume free laundry detergent. Since you can develop sensitivites to all the dyes and perfumes over time (not to mention they are not good for the environment!!) we like it a lot!

I love the Tide with Febeeze Freshness (Spring Renewal scent).

I use it with the Bounce dryer sheets with Febeeze Freshness (Spring Renewal scent) too.

i make my own!  πŸ™‚  i use this recipe, except i substitue castille soap for the fels naptha soap.  http://modcottage.com/?p=117 it comes out to 5 cents a load, whereas my old detergent (tide) is 30 cents a load.  i started making my own to decrease the amount of chemicals, dyes, phthalates etc. that our skin comes into contact with, but the amount of money saved is a super awesome bonus!

Tide with Downey I prefer powder but have switch to liquid as I now pay for water (I didn’t in my condo) so I wash in cold

@UpstateCait:

Yay! Those are good?  I bought some for Fiance and put them in his carepackage I sent him while over seas. App. they charge an arm and a leg for that kind of stuff in Afghanistan. Glad to hear they’re “Bee” approved πŸ™‚

Tide with Febreeze! Oh I love Tide. Also, sticking some fabric sheets in your drawers help keeps your clothes smelling super good and clean.

I buy the cheapest unscented stuff possible then use the Bounty Dryer Bar in Cotton. It smells like bliss πŸ™‚

@simplifiedbride: That is so cool!!! I saw the Duggars making laundry detergent on 18 Kids and Counting and thought it was freaking amazing. I am going to have to test it out one of the these days.

I buy the ecofriendly brands. Ecover is my favorite, Seventh Generation is great, too. I have considered making my own, but haven’t gotten that far yet. I also use Ecover’s chlorine free bleach for whites and the dog’s blanket. It is also great to put in the carpet scrubber with the carpet soap…gets the carpets even whiter! A little off topic, but I just had to share. πŸ™‚
