Pop In, Stand Out! Tide PODS Review

Hey hey ladies! Today we are talking laundry. And no, that is not my laundry room, but I wish it was πŸ˜‰

I don’t know about you, but laundry is my happy place. I get a sick satisfaction out of washing my clothes, hanging them dry, ironing them, and placing them in my perfectly color coordinated closet. And yes, I am fully aware some of you are giving me the side eye thinking how in the world does she have time to do that? Or maybe perhaps “girlfriend be craaazy.” Either are acceptable, and warranted responses.

Life is busy, so I try to save time in little ways. Imagine my excitement when I found these one-step easy-to-use Tide Pods. Has anyone tried them?

You just pop in one of these powerful cleaning, brightening, and stain-fighting little babies into your washing machine and boom, laundry done.
I love them for many reasons:
One: They smell awesome. They come in spring meadow, ocean mist, and mystic forest.
Two: They are SO easy. Just throw in and go.
Three: They are clean and mess free, you don’t have to worry about detergent drips in your laundry room. This drives me CRAZY.
Four: They are the only three-chamber dose on the market containing detergent, stain remover, and brightener all in one.
Five: Just one pac removes more stains than 6 caps of the liquid bargain brand!*
What is not to love, people?
Clothes are expensive, and you want to take every precaution you can to preserve your wardrobe staple pieces. I honestly try to only buy things that I can launder myself. Dry cleaners are expensive, yo! Tide Pods are not only super easy, but friendly to your wallet too!
Tide Pods allow me to pop in, and stand out! So in the spirit of standing out, what is YOUR favorite item to stand out in? Just leave me a comment letting me know what that outfit is, and you could be the lucky reader to win a $100 VISA giftcard!

Thanks for reading, and as always, xoxo!! PLL.

  1. This is fabulous!I have a pair of black pants that are a staple-favorite and I'll do anything to brighten and prevent fade.

  2. Yes, you get both a side eye and a girlfriend be crazy from me, but you know I've got nothing but love for you. Even if you do love laundry. πŸ˜‰

    My favorite thing to stand out in? Well, I love me some sequins and fabulous heels, of course.

  3. JCorna says:

    I like to stand out in anything with sparkles!

  4. Jordan says:

    My favorite way to stand out at the moment is in my tall heeled brown boots! Everyone in my office claims they know I'm coming because I can be heard from the opposite side of the building. Plus, I get tons of compliments on them! πŸ™‚

  5. Jiwon Kim says:

    I've always wanted to try these!!

    I love standing out in some great pumps!

  6. Jess says:

    Laundry on the blog? Are we growing up?! Ahhh…so not fun, but anything to make laundry easier is fine in my book!! πŸ™‚

    As a new mom, anything with HEELS make me stand out (well, in my opinion)! It's rare these days, so it's always fun to dress up!!

  7. I have to be very careful with all of my lululemon gear. I'd love to test these bad boys out!

  8. Kristen says:

    I love my new leopard flats. I wear them with black, skinny pants, and they always stand out!

  9. Stephanie says:

    Can't believe that you love doing laundry. This is my least favorite thing to do in the world. If I could hire someone to only do my laundry and hang it in my closet exactly how I want it, I totally would. Too bad no one does it to my standards. Boo! Give me your love of laundry, please. My life would be much easier!

    My favorite thing to stand out in is heels & a bright pink blazer, gorgeous!

  10. Diana says:

    Recently my favorite item to stand out in was my black buckle boots. What I mean by was is that my doggie ate them last week….will definitely have to try those pods!

  11. Pamela says:

    Love any tall boot!!

  12. Emmasensei says:

    I love red lipstick, sparkly earrings, and a striped tee!

  13. justme5686 says:

    I wear a lot of black with big sparkly jewelry and I have to keep that black nice and dark to make the jewels pop!

  14. Amanda says:

    My favorite item is a pair of dark skinny jeans, cognac boots, and a cute tunic! It takes a great detergent to keep those skinnies dark πŸ™‚

  15. definitely getting the side eye from me. who loves to do laundry? Not this lady, so anything that can help get my clothes clean and smelling good while also being on the cheaper side is awesome to me.

    I love standing out in a nice, non-faded, non-shrinking in length (lol), pair of jeans with a fancy tank top!

    the sweet life of a southern wife

  16. Sami says:

    You know we are soul sisters right? I hate any and all chores EXCEPT for laundry! I love having all of my pretty clothes all hanging in my closet because there's nothing worse than wanting to wear something and finding it in the dirty laundry πŸ™‚

  26. I adore Tide pods. I got a new washer/dryer last year and LOVE the detergent packets. Otherwise, adding the detergent is so hard. And I stand out in coordinating outfits with my Pug.

  27. I'm fairly simple and I also don't buy clothes that I have to dry clean! My favorite shirt is a black cotton shirt with cut outs in the back. It's comfortalbe and stylish! I do hate how my blacks fade so fast so I'd love to try these and see if it will help keep thier maximum darkness longer. Love you lou!
