We have all been there at one point or another. You know… Those times when you head away on vacation to a tropical destination and upon arriving home you realize that your favourite dress has a musty smell that just won’t fade after several washes.
Or perhaps, you went camping and your clothes seem to be clinging to the smell of burning wood. I know I may love the smell of campfire, but I certainly don’t love to wreak of it well after arriving home from a Summer weekend getaway.
What if I told your there was a solution? Because there is, and it is awesome!
This month, Tide is launching the new Tide + Downy Odor Defense Collection. With the help of Febreze in-wash odor defense technology, the Odor Defense Collection is a laundry regimen specifically designed to eliminate odors instead of just masking them. Each product in the Odor Defense Collection works at a different fiber level to break down dirt and body soils so smells don’t “rebloom” or come back.
“What is rebloom?!”, you ask. Rebloom is when your clothes start smelling moments after you put them on or start to smell even though you recently washed them. For example, when your newly cleaned workout clothes start to smell after only a few minutes back at the gym, or when your towels start to smell like mildew again the day after you’ve washed them (Yuck!). Other laundry products may mask, or fail to fully remove, these malodor-causing bacteria.
I have been using Downy products for quite some time to freshen up areas, like the gym bag or the linen closet. Simply by sprinkling some of the motion-activated beads into a ziploc, punctured with a couple holes and storing in those areas. It not only serves well for laundry purposes, but doubles as a wicked air freshener.
With hot tub season now in full swing (does it ever really end?), you can often find me unwinding after a long day of parenting with a glass of vino in the hot tub. It is my way of sneaking in a bit of me time each day, but without having to fully separate myself from the family. However, with how often we have to shock the hot tub or add chemicals to it, you can bet the smells start to stick to not only my swim suits, but also my towels.
Downy Fresh Protect has served as a great aid to eliminate those unwanted odors, and will continue to be my go-to for not only the Summer months, but year round!
With the warmer weather here to stay, and many of us now participating in Summer sports or heading out to the cottage or camping… Now is a better time than ever to check out the new Odor Defense Collection! Enter for your chance to win a $50 Walmart Canada gift card, which you can use to pick up the new Odor Defense Collection if and should you win!
