I do have a few handmade pieces that I consider “dry-clean” only. But that just means take it off as soon as I get home and hang it back up. Like that silk skirt and houndstooth jacket that are not to be worn at mealtimes unless completely covered in napkins.
So my wardrobe is generally pretty low maintenance. My four favorite shirts are a white cotton knit, a polka dot polyester, a faded pink lace 3/4 sleeve and a purple floral blouse. All 100% machine washable. Cotton and polyester aren’t the fanciest fabrics, but silks and dry-clean-onlys don’t really fit my current lifestyle. Since my wardrobe is more limited than usual in my current state, being able to wash it quickly and easily is even more important.
I recently got my hands on some Tide Pods in spring meadow scent and I’m loving the way it makes my laundry feel (and smell!). It has three chambers of brightening, cleaning and stain-fighting power. I love just throwing in one of the 3-in-1 Tide Pods instead of measuring out powder or liquid, and consequently spilling it everywhere. It’s so easy and not messy at all. The spring meadow scent makes me want to frolic in a field! I LOVE the way it smells. So much better than the generic detergent smell.
I try to take good care of my clothing so it lasts longer. I get attached to certain pieces, like the knit shirt from American Eagle that I wore on the very first date. Or the cute little vest with a big button I wore on the top of a mountain the day I got engaged. I just can’t bring myself to throw away those memories. A good laundry routine is helping me keep these pieces fresh and looking new. Tide Pods are the perfect addition to my machine wash laundry routine!
