I’m excited to announce a special Holiday Gift Guide Sponsor, Cheer Laundry Detergent. Who doesn’t want clean and bright clothes for the Holidays and every other day of the year. Because this is a special sponsor AWESOME giveaway will run until the end of the Holiday Gift Guide. This will give everyone a chance to get in their entries for such a much needed prize.
With six family members living in our house we do A LOT of laundry. You could pretty much do a load of laundry a day and possibly stay caught up, and that isn’t even throwing in the sheets which is a good 2-3 loads by itself. I buy many things generic to save a little money but there are a few things such as peanut butter, ketchup, and laundry detergent that I chose to buy brand names.
Even before I had the opportunity to test out Cheer it has always been one of my favorite brands of laundry detergent. I remember once (and this is a true story). Thinking after a trip to my mom’s that every time we did laundry while staying with her it always smelled better and seemed cleaner and brighter. I took me a few trips to realize the difference was the laundry detergent. I don’t remember what I was using at the time I do remember it was powder based. After that I began using Cheer.
Cheer comes in several different formulas from bleach alternative to Cheer for darks.
If you have ever visited their site you will find quite a view “bright ideas”, or tips for your laundry.
|Sort oranges with reds, purples, and bright blues; navies with blacks; and creams with tans.|
|Turn garments inside out to reduce fading and prevent pilling.
Don’t overstuff your washer. It can cause poor rinsing and detergent deposits.
Wash dark fabrics in cold water to prevent fading. Don’t forget to load the machine with Cheer® For Darks.
New colored garments (especially red ones) should be washed separately first to avoid bleeding.
Close buttons, zip zippers, and fasten clasps to prevent damage to delicate items within the load.
|Clothes can be air-dried anywhere but the bathroom. It’s too damp in there!
Jeans should be air-dried on a hanger for best results.
Before drying, separate lint-shredders (fuzzy sweatshirts, chenille robes, flannels, and towels) from lint-keepers (knits, corduroys, and permanent-press fabrics).
Tie drawstrings on sweatshirts and pants to prevent knotting.
|Always fold sweaters. Hangers can stretch these garments, causing them to lose shape.
Hang jackets with padded hangers to help them retain their shape.
Store clothes in a cool, dark, well-ventilated place to preserve the life of your fabrics.
Place a dehumidifier in your closet to prevent mold and mildew.
Scatter cedar-scents satchels in your closet to repel moths and carpet beetles.
|Pack individual outfits in plastic bags when traveling to minimize wrinkles. Don’t forget to squeeze out the air.
Stuff socks into your shoes to help them retain their shape.
Did You Know?
|Wool is naturally stain and wrinkle resistant, quick-drying, antimicrobial, and fire retardant.|
They also have a great FAQ section that I just learned there is different uses for both liquid detergent and powder detergent.
The way it works is simple. Just tell us which 5 grand prizes and 1 weekly prize you can’t live without from the list and if you win, well, that’s what you’ll win. Come back every week and you’ll receive even more chances to win.
