Amigas les encanta el proceso de lavar la ropa? Noooo- a mi tampoco! Solo la idea de tener tanta ropa para lavar las deja sin sueño por las noches? Compartan sus ideas y pueden ganar una cesta llena de productos de lavar de Downy y Tide!
Does the amount of laundry waiting for you to process keep you up at night? Well I don’t love the laundry being on my ‘to do’ list either and the piles seem to grow faster than we can manage in my house! My husband and I have our tweens helping with the laundry and Katherine has her crew working on managing family laundry as well. It’s a long learning process with kids but having products that make it fun and ‘smell great’ certainly make it easier.
Turns out that another key element about laundry actually really is the scent! Washing linens with soothing scents such as lavender can really help create an environment to fall asleep more easily. We’re supporting P&G’s campaign to help our Los Tweens & Teens parents take the “Tuck In. Turn Off.” Pledge. The “Tuck In. Turn Off.” Pledge aims to combat sleep deprivation by encouraging people to turn off their technology at least 30 minutes before bedtime and tuck in to clean fabrics infused with the soothing scent and softness of the Sweet Dreams Collection. The pledge can be taken online by visiting www.TuckInTurnOff.com.
Our amigos at P&G have provided a laundry basket filled with items that will help the laundry process and hopefully help you sleep better at night in return! The basket includes the following P&G products and is valued at around $200- whoooo! (that would be a happy dance for parents, not kids!):
