Woolite.. For Everyday?

Did you know Woolite has expanded their product line to include more then just fabric softener? They are now selling detergent. Woolite sent me some samples to evaluate and share with my friends. Here's what I thought.

On a Good, Better, Best basis I would probably put the new Woolite in the "better" category. There is definitely a lot of much worse brands and types of detergent. Ones that leave a filmy residue on your clothes. Ones that don't even fully dissolve in the washer. My experience with Woolite didn't generate any of these issues. I found it to be comparable to most basic detergents.

Price is a huge factor for all of us, especially with laundry detergent, since it isn't cheap. And you do get what you pay for. Based on its performance during my evaluation I find Woolite to be over priced. I think they would do better by themselves to be more competitive, price wise. They are currently possibly the highest priced detergent, with the exception of all nature and "free" brands. I would consider Woolite comparable to Tide or Gain, but comes in at $3-$4 more for a 100oz bottle. Keep in mind thought, Woolite everyday is High Efficiency safe... Other detergents aren't or have a separate high efficiency safe. This could be the reason for the price difference. And I don't use a high efficiency machine, so I am more accustom the basic laundry detergent.

Performance is also important when choosing a detergent. The detergent manufactures have been getting very creative. I've had little pods that don't dissolve  and therefore don't wash your clothes. My mother, a house cleaner, notices that any highly perfumed detergent leaves a horrible residue on her rags. And some detergents, just don't work. Woolite works! I experienced no "side effects". The clothes come out smelling clean, they are clean, and there are no films or residues left behind.

I am partial to detergents with a strong after wash smell or perfume, but I know a lot of people are not. If you are one of those people, then you Woolite is for you. The clothe have a general clean smell, with no strong perfumes.

I used my personal samples on a load of clothes as well as my sheets to see how they would do. I had a hoodie, my favorite hoodie, that for some reason would never get clean around the neck / hood area. The more I washed it the worse it started to smell, just it that area. Woolie did the job. The hoodie is finally clean!
Before Woolite


Then I have my sheets a try. They get pretty decent wear spots right where I sleep. I hate it, because the perimeter of the sheets still look new out of the box, then there is my body pattern. You can see on the pillows how they looked new ( I don't use the pillows).
After Woolite




The photo on the right shows the after Woolite. There wasn't much of a difference unfortunately, but I don't think I would've gotten any different results with another detergent either.



Overall, I find Woolite to be a very comparable and competitive detergent in the high efficiency department. I would like to see the detergent more competitively priced with regular detergent, but with high efficiency machines becoming the norm, regular detergent will eventually be a thing of the past anyway.

The Cottenelle Clean Care Routine

SO FRESH AND SO CLEAN CLEAN!

First, I need to tell you a little about my toilet paper history. I've used the same paper, for 27 years (that's my whole life). Aside from at friends houses / public places, It's always been the same brand of toilet paper.
In my defense, and a suggestion for Cottenelle and the others, there is only one brand that boldly advertises "Septic Safe"
Unknown to us, Cotonelle is septic safe. We could've been using it this whole time *facepalm*

I was sent some cottenelle paper & wipes also know as The Cottenelle Clear Care Routine as a sample to evaluate. I was planning on just giving my septic a beating, until I read the back of the package (something I've never done with toilet paper) and learned that not only the TP itself, but the wipes too were septic safe.
::: excited :::
And it begins. We started using the routine as it was intended. Toilet Paper then wipes.. Just like to commercial, you wouldn't take a shower with no water right? First of all, its nice to be able to use a reasonable amount of toilet paper without having "leakage" on your hands. Gross, I know, but this is a review on toilet paper, we're going to have to get a little personal here. Back to it. So with the reduced amount used, I was able to get through a whole week on 1 roll (just me, not the whole family, were not 1 square only kinda people, don't freak out).  Then there's the wipes. So refreshing! I've always had a bit of an OCD about not feeling clean enough down there. This was a problem solver. I only wish I could take them to work, but I think I might get harassed if I walked to the bathroom with a pack of wet wipes.
They should make pocket packs. *idea alert*.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Clean Care Routine and associated Cottonelle products. I've found that I feel more fresh and clean through-out the day, and for the sake of not getting to gross, more generally "healthy" in the down under ;). The price is right too! The 4 packs retail about the same as my existing brand and from my evaluation appear they may actually last longer, making them of higher value. No complaints.
