Clean Is Not an Option

“Style is an option clean is not” is the new slogan to live by when thinking about laundry detergent. And while clean is not an option it’s also important to get the most value for your money. Value in this case means a quality product to preserve your clothes for the best possible price. How do you best do that in an industry that advances so quickly? It’s really about finding the products you are comfortable with.The laundry detergent industry can be a bit overwhelming. There are basic detergents that have been tried and true through the years, the “green" detergents that are better for the environment, and the maximum performance detergents that are made specifically for the newer washing machines. So how do you choose? If you’re like most of us, price plays a huge factor in the decision making process. There is no excuse for dingy clothes or dirty sheets! And when you visit company websites like armandhammer.com they will send you free samples of their products. Why not test it out before you buy and the sample always comes with coupons for when you decide to commit.

Most grocery stores such as Kroger’s and Publix will have weekly sales in which new detergent are on sale and the other brands rotate, although Wal-Mart claims the lowest prices for household products. These sales can be combined with coupons in your Sunday paper in circulars like Redplum, Super Saver, and even Proctor & Gamble for additional savings. For example, Kroger has Tide on sale this week for $8.99 and there is a $3 coupon from the Proctor & Gamble circular so you are getting laundry detergent for $5.99. If you want to try out the new Green Works detergent then stop by Target who has their own coupons and are taking $3 off their sale price of $9.99.Do you have a favorite brand that you are loyal to? Great, head over to the brand website and sign up for coupons to be sent to you.

Doing laundry is a must, but paying high prices for your laundry needs is not. Using coupons to save money on soaps and fabric softeners is a great way to keep from being taken to the cleaners for your laundry needs.

  1. I tend to be very satisfied with the laundry detergent I can buy at a local dollar store. I've honestly never even seen much of a difference between expensive name-brand detergents and these no-name dollar store brands. If you can find a coupon for said dollar store, the savings are even more (and you are officially frugal!).
