Review: Dreft Laundry Detergent {and a Giveaway!}

by Cate on November 6, 2014

I have a few things I am picky about.

Alright, it may be more than a few things…

The dishwasher, for sure, particularly how it’s loaded (just ask Sarah). Even though I don’t think it’s pickiness in as much as it is just the way I happen to do it.

And laundry.

Most particularly, the way it smells and feels.

When Nick was a baby, a friend and a pediatrician both mentioned Dreft detergent. And I was pretty much in from the word go. One of the things I look for when choosing a laundry detergent is something that doesn’t have an overpowering scent. I want it to smell clean. Not like a field of flowers. To smell fresh, but not to smack you in the face when you put on a shirt.

Simple but important requirements.

And when I started having kids, I added one more requirement. It had to be safe for the baby’s skin, so I didn’t have to worry about them breaking out.

Which is pretty much exactly why Dreft has been in our lives for thirteen years now (it’s been around for 80 years!). Because it met my before-kids requirements, and met my after-kids requirements. The fact that it’s hypoallergenic is awesome, and now that the kids are a bit older, the fact that it’s a great stain remover is all better.

Because if there is one thing we can all agree on … it’s that we’d be ok if we spent less time doing laundry.

I would love an introduction to Dreft, as it may be something we want to incorporate into our routines in the very near future . . . ;)

Though I’m not super fastidious about getting the laundry done by a set time during the week, I try to prioritize getting everything washed, dried and hung in the closet by the time we go to bed on Sunday night. I have weeks where I just didn’t feel up to it, we were away, etc., and having laundry piles lingering into the work week is awful! Now I focus on the task and try to get it done.

I used Dreft when my daughters were babies but stopped using it as they got older. I really did like it and the smell was great. I would love to try it again!

I use distilled vinegar to sterilize the washing machine after washing.

I use amonia to take the odor out of gym towels.

I would freak out if I won this won what a great prize pack. To make laundry easier I try to do a couple loads each week so it is not over whelming.

I use Dawn dish soap to get stains out!

Here are a few of my favorite tips:

Stain-treat your whites/lights, especially in the armpits. This will prevent those pesky sweat stains.

Do one load everyday, beginning to end. Wash, dried, folded, and put away.

Use vinegar for extra smelly clothes. 1/2 cup added to the wash does wonders.

I saved a laundry treatment guide from an old issue of Martha Stewart Living. It’s been a lifesaver. :) Also, when in doubt, try Dawn dish soap!

I use baking soda in the wash for brighter clothes.

I stink at laundry and depend on even the four year old to help me fold towels! It is a team effort here!

My favorite tip is to treat stains right away– rub an ice cube or cold water, ,scrub the stain a little, then pre-treat with Dreft stain remover spray. Thanks for the opportunity!

I love to use unscented things and add vinegar to every load of wash to make things smell good and feel soft.

My tip is to wash small amounts of laundry through out the week so it doesn’t pile up.
