Tide Vivid White Powder Detergent
« on: October 05, 2012, 03:27:06 PM »
I read in consumer reports a few months back that Tide Vivid White (with color safe bleach) POWDER was the best detergent, better than liquid, to use in your HE washer. I have used liquid for years but decided to try it. Then I couldn't find the Tide Vivid White powder for HE anywhere. Not until I finally turned a box around and looked at the back did I notice the HE written really small on the back. Why they don't have HE on the front is rather stupid in my opinion.

After a few washes I noticed the powder wasn't coming completely out of the dark clothes so I reduced the amount and added the extra rinse cycle to the wash. I can tell a difference, it does work better than the other laundry soaps that I have used. I also stopped using regular bleach so much for my towels and whites (sometimes I felt that the whites looked a little yellow). I now use regular borax with whites (in the pre-wash dispenser not the one for bleach) and really make the whites white. I use bleach every once in awhile still.

I think it is worth a try if you want to see for yourself.  I put it in an extra large ball jar and put it on my counter in the laundry room. It looks really cute. Target sells them but they are overpriced at $19. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby when they have a sale on their glass jars or you could use one of their 40% off coupons. I assume Michaels has them too.

Tide Vivid White Powder Detergent




Suuuuuuuuuure it is.    :whistling:
“The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

Suuuuuuuuuure it is.    :whistling:

After 18 years or so living in our home under the idea we had a septic tank and spending shit loads on septic cleaners we now find we in in fact do not have a septic tank.   Some of our neighbors do, we have had to put up with the smells of the pumping out  from their tanks.

When we were amongst and first to move in, the land owner put in a very large sewage pipe to send everything to a holding station.    We were never informed, last spring Hubby took out the metal detector to find out where our tank was and where the leach field was.     The homes with the tanks were having big problems and we wanted to know where ours was-----Good place to plant a garden we were told.

The land manager came over and after all these years told Hubby we had no tank.  what a surprise, we headed out and bought 10 gallons of Clorox for laundry and general cleaning.  First time in almost 2 decades we had really white sheets and clothing.

My kitchen floor was no longer a shade of yellow and the kitchen counters were really sterile.  My washer and dryer and dishwasher call for the HP detergent,  but I now add 1/4 cup Clorox to the empty machines once a week to clean out the crud that does build up.

In case of a very big load of dishes I will add 1/8 cup of bleach, surprising how the glasses sparkle and works better then that rinse stuff that is added and is expensive. For the clothes washer I add a couple of those color catcher sheets and bleach, so far no problems and I no longer sort colors, no problems YET.

I am from the generation of the home bomb shelters and remember my Dad showing Mom and me how many drops of Clorox to each gallon of water to make it safe to drink.

On the down side I remember living in Panama and all the fruits and vegetables bought at the military Commissary's smelling of bleach,  :banghead:   that and the fact one never removed food from the paper bag, one up ended it so in case some spider or what have you hiding in the bag could be dispatched with a fly swatter.

You know as a small child I do not know how my Mom did the laundry, no way was she down by a river banging our cloths on a rock. 

Soap, it has gone through a metamorphose from the past.   I do remember using White Rain as shampoo and jumping in the lake to rinse it out.    Talk about squeaky clean hair, today if I did that I would be arrested as a domestic terrorist.

Even if you did have a septic tank sweetie your washer should have a dry well so you could have used bleach.
"Liberalism is an essentially feminine, submissive world view. Perhaps a better adjective than feminine is infantile. It is the world view of men who do not have the moral toughness, the spiritual strength to stand up and do single combat with life, who cannot adjust to the reality that the world is not a huge, pink-and-blue, padded nursery in which the lions lie down with the lambs and everyone lives happily ever after."
