Baseball season has started which means my laundry pile has gotten even higher. Through all of the games and practices during the week I’m there for every pitch, every swing, every slide and every mud mess and after game icee’s that follow with it. Until my little sports star is in the major leagues and has someone else washing his uniforms, that after game mess is added to my laundry pile.
This is our second year of tee-ball and I’ve found a few things that work great for tackling those messy uniforms after the game. My secret is by using the quick and cold washing machine cycle with Tide Pods. It not only gets the uniforms clean and bright but saves me time, money, and lightens my environmental impact!
The first thing you want to do after the game is to tackle those stains (if any) as soon as you get home. Use a stain remover or pre-soak liquid to help remove the stain. Try to use the stain remover that will work on the particular type of stain you have.
When you’re ready to wash you’ll want to make sure you have a laundry detergent that works in cold water like Tide PODS. Tide PODS are specifically formulated to work efficiently in quick and cold cycles. In fact, when used in quick & cold cycles, you get 10x the cleaning power in half the time compared to the leading bargain liquid detergent brand. Using cold water will prevent the uniform from shrinking and it will also do less damage on the colors than hot water can do. Washing clothes in cold water also saves you lots of energy and money. There’s an up to 80% reduction in energy use when using the quick & cold vs. normal cycles. And It also results in 40% less greenhouse gas emissions.
