I finished my TIDE CHALLENGE – The whole bottle is all used up.
Have no idea what I’m talking about? Check these out:
Drumroll please…. 207! I got Two Hundred Seven uses out of a Sixty-Four load bottle. That’s not too shabby!
My goal was to get three times the loads out of the bottle, which would have been 192.
So I beat it! I’m so pleased to know that not only did I milk three times the load amount out of my super pricey, albeit pleasantly aromatic, Tide bottle – but I only did 207 loads of laundry in over a year!
Considering I do the tie dye business at home and wash, and re-wash and RE-wash all those clothes, that’s pretty good! Granted, we don’t have kids… but still! I wear lots of clothes. I do a few costume changes a day, sometimes (workout clothes, hausfrau get-up, jammies, etc).
So there we go. A new bottle of Tide was purchased, and the Sharpie Marker in the laundry room was retired (I’m not going to keep track for another year). And I’m happily satisfied with what I’ve done here. I’m going greener, a little bit at a time. I followed through with a project that took longer than a year to complete. And best of all – I’ve turned so many people on to adding a lil’ WDV to the ole detergent!
