Protect The Clothes You Love with Downy Fabric Conditioner

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G.

Our house is on the market. It has been a nerve wracking experience to say the least. But it means I have been wanting to clean all the things! Laundry is one of those on-going battles. And I seem to have been doing it more often because I don't want anyone that comes to see our home to also see our dirty laundry.

Besides the regular laundry, I have been wanting to clean our decorative linens as well. I have a beautiful quilt that my mother-in-law made for me last Christmas that we keep on the end of our bed. It is very precious to me. We don't sleep with it, but sometimes it needs to be laundered because it can gather dust. So I decided to incorporate Downy Fabric Conditioner into my laundry routine.

Four Fabulous Laundry Hacks

Getting Your Child to Help with Chores + Purex® PowerShot DetergentGiveaway

I recently had the opportunity to review Purex® PowerShot Detergent that makes doing laundry a breeze! I have been trying to get my daughter more involved in our family chores because not only does she ask to help all the time (which I'm trying to enjoy because I know it won't last long), but also because I want to start giving her an allowance soon and start teaching her about earning stuff instead of just being given everything. So helping out with laundry, I felt, was the first step.

I take the clothes out of the washer and she puts them in the dryer. Then I hand her the separated clothes and she puts them in the dryer. (I am also working on getting her to help with the dishes and vacuuming, but I'm not holding my breathe!) After the clothes were in the washer, we were usually done, but now thanks to Purex® PowerShot Detergent she can help put this easy measure liquid detergent in without any spills!

Clean ATTITUDE Eco-Baby #Laundry Detergent & Little Ones Fabric Softener Review

I received this product as part of an advertorial. All opinions are 100% my own.

I know I have mentioned more than a few times about my families' skin issues. The first time we realized SweetPea was allergic to certain kinds of laundry detergent and diapers, I felt like the worst mother in the world. I did a TON of research and found that there are a crazy amount of chemicals in common, everyday household items! So when I received the opportunity to review some of ATTITUDE Laundry Detergent, I was very excited!

ATTITUDE Laundry Detergent, a natural and efficient option to fight stubborn laundry stains. Since we are exposed to countless products every day, we believe they should be free of all chemicals linked to cancer, even in small doses.

Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets Review & Giveaway, 2 Winners, Ends 6/1

I received the following complimentary as part of the Purex Insider blogger program. All opinions are my own.

I love dryer sheets more than liquid fabric softener. The reason? They have so many uses! I tend to only use them on our sheets and towels when washing because they sit in the closet longer. I also like to use them to stick in our drawers and closets so everything can smell laundry fresh longer.

Making My Life Harder

Now, I would just like to point out the fact that I love my husband and my dog very much. With that said, today was a rough day, I didn't get alot of sleep last night, there were many new chores to do at work because the kids were going to their grandparents' house, plus I have been sick. So when I got off early, I was very excited and thinking I'm going to go home and take a well deserved nap.

My dog has been acting out lately by going to the bathroom on the floor and getting into the trash. I think he knows something is different with me. Wait until this baby comes, his whole world is going to change. But since he has been doing this, we have been putting him up when we're not here. Well, my husband forgot today so the dog got into the trash. I wish I had a picture of the mess he made, it was ridiculous. And thing is, my husband had pulled it out and tied it off to take it out and dog still got into it. I knew something was up when I saw him lying in his pin on his own (he knew he had done something wrong).

Well then to make matters worse, my husband had made lunch/dinner for himself but left me with the mess. This is also the same man who cleaned out his car and put everything in the middle of the living room floor. It wasn't trash, just clothes and such but guess who had to clean it up. There is still some stuff that I didn't know where to put, so he 'organized it' by shoving it up against the wall.

I think this is one of the biggest things we fight over. Cleaning up after yourself. I feel if I was a stay at home wife that I would do more because I would feel like that was my job but I have a full time job already. I agree he works more but some things are just ridiculous. When he needs a pair of clean pants, he informs me instead of doing it himself. Really?! Like he doesn't have two hands.

And what am I doing now? Making lausage so he has lunch for next week because he's on vacation. How messed up in the head am I?
