Putting Tide To The Test (And A Giveaway!)

Disclosure: I am a P&G mom ambassador. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and have been compensated to put Tide to the stain test. The opinions on this blog are my own. 

Spring is here, even though the weather hasn't been warm enough to enjoy the great outdoors yet. And what's with all the snow? Despite the less than seasonable weather, I'm still excited for spring. So excited, in fact,  I went somewhere I don't often go... to the gardening store.  I bought the supplies I needed to start planting some indoor herbs and plants, since it's not warm enough to do any outdoor gardening yet. The truth is, I don't have a green thumb, but I thought I'd start somewhere, and planting some herbs isn't that difficult. I love doing things that my boys can get involved in, too.

I'm not afraid to get dirty, either—I'm a die-hard Tide fan, and Tide Ultra Stain Release works miracles on clothes that are covered in dirt. Even white t-shirts! Trust me, I'm raising two boys and after a day playing outside, it's a miracle that their everyday stains actually get out, no matter what they're wearing.

Once I got what I needed to grow my indoor garden (potting soil, seeds, and cute little pots) I placed my herbs by my living room windows where they'll get the most sunshine. Thankfully, keeping indoor herbs means I don't have to worry about the temperature. And of course, being the amateur that I am when it comes to gardening, I got a little... messy. No worry, though—Tide easily removed all the stains. Even on the white t-shirt I wore.



How did I get rid of my stains? I removed the excess dirt from my shirt, rinsed it cold water, and washed my shirt with Tide after soaking it in cold water for half an hour. (For tougher stains, simply use the Zap! cap as a pre-treatment, then get back to your regular washing.)

Tide removes over 100 stains in one wash, so even if I'm dealing with a load of children's dirty clothes, I have nothing to worry about. Tide Ultra Stain Release is incredibly powerful and removes the toughest stains.

It's kind of hard to believe how great Tide Ultra Stain Release is unless you put it to the test yourself, so I'm giving away a P&G Fabric Care Gift Basket so you can put Tide to the test, too, and tackle those tough everyday stains. I can't wait to hear how much you love it.

To win, just leave me a comment below telling me what you love about spring. I'll randomly pick a winner on April 15th.

I absolutely love when the flowers start to bloom, we finally get so see 'colour' instead of the white we usually are staring at for months. I love not having to wear 2-3 layers of clothing just to ensure I don't freeze.

Everyone's mood changes when Spring comes, or it seems to. People seem a little happier, more cheerful, kinder... like a very mini Christmas.

I'm looking forward to drinking my coffee outside at 5am, going nuts buying and planting flowers, maybe finally getting a bistro set and I have a pinterest thing I want to do for the climbing vines!! That was supposed to be this weekend but they are calling for 90km/hr winds, so NOPE lol

What I love about spring is the weather and the melting of the snow. Myself and my kids have our birthdays in the spring, so that is another thing I enjoy.

I love the freshness in the air, and that the sun comes out more often. I love being able to lose a few layers of clothing, and ditch the winter parka.

The best part of spring is the fashion! Bright colors, patterns, light fabrics; capri pants, slip-on shoes, & sunglasses! It feels so refreshing.
