Make Your Family's Clothes Last Longer With Quality Laundry Products From Family Dollar (Review & Giveaway)

Stains and messes happen, especially when you're a parent.  Having two children in the house, messy or dirty clothes are a fact of everyday life.  As a mom, it is very important for me to keep my children's clothing looking great, and making sure that they can get the most use out of them.

 

There are a few tips and tricks that I use to make my family’s clothes last longer. 

  • I purchase quality children's clothing during sales and clearance.  I also combine a coupon whenever possible for maximum savings.  Being able to purchase quality, name brand clothing at discount prices helps ensure that my children's clothing will look better, longer.
  • I only use quality laundry care products.  Tide and Downy have been staples in our household for year!  I love the way they clean our clothes (even the messiest ones), and how good our clothes smell after every wash.
  • Like colors and fabrics.  I separate and wash all of our laundry into like colors and fabrics into every load.
  • Play clothes and school clothes.  Both of my children have clothes that are specifically for school and special occasions only.  They have a separate drawer that contains play clothes.  This keeps their "good" clothes looking newer longer.

Procter & Gamble recently sent me a variety of amazing laundry care products to try.  Gain Flings, Downy Unstoppables, and a few products from the Tide Plus Collection.  The scent, effectiveness, and convenience of these products is top notch.

Using quality laundry care products can sometimes be expensive, but I was happy to find out that Family Dollar carries most of my favorite laundry products, including Tide, Downy and Gain!  Being a frugal coupon shopper, I love it when I can find awesome prices on products that I love.  Family Dollar stocks the best new laundry products from trusted brands, including new and convenient fabric care options from Gain and Tide that offer extra benefits – like the best stain removal and great, new scents –and at great value pricing.

Family Dollar shoppers take pride in making their families’ look and feel their best, and clothes are an important part of that equation. Family Dollar offers the latest innovations in fabric care to assure your family has an affordable clean – a better clean for every dollar. The new P&G products will help keep your family’s clothes cleaner and are part of a regimen to keep them looking newer and lasting longer.

The Family Dollar is like 5 miles away. I shop there almost every week.

My favorite tip is to use a wooden clothes rack to dry small items to save on money and energy.

We don't have a Family Dollar close by. The nearest one is in Davis, CA. When we are driving by the town we always make it a point to stop at Family Dollar. You can't beat the prices.

My best laundry tip is to wash as much as possible in cold water. It also helps to air dry so the fabric doesn't go through the wear and tear of a dryer.

My best laundry tip is not to save all of your laundry for one day--HA. I have a habit of that, and then it wastes an entire day.
