Fall Wardrobe

My family has been quickly growing over the last few years, and our home is feeling smaller and smaller with each new baby we welcome! Space in our house is limited and so it is oh so important that we keep our closets filled with only the clothes we will need. Problem is, I have a wardrobe problem for me and for my kids. A problem in that each of our seasonal wardrobes could fill a closet! Winter, Spring, Summer and fall each has it’s own collection of clothes in each of our closets, and we have the rest of the seasons stored in big tubs hanging in our garage.


This week we started to swap our summer clothes out for fall/winter clothes (and I might have gotten a little emotional swapping out my youngest’s clothes as I realized he’s not a baby anymore!) and when I opened each of our tubs from storage, I was overwhelmed by the stale smell of garage and sawdust.

You don’t even want to know how many loads of laundry I did this week. On top of our usual amount of laundry, I added in all of the stored clothes we had taken out and I pretty much was folding laundry like it was my full time job. We were asked to try out Tide, Downy and Bounce products and this was a great opportunity to do that!

Lots of Laundry

I started each load in our washer with Tide Original and April Fresh Ultra Downy, then swappped the loads over to the dryer with Outdoor Fresh Bounce Dryer Sheets.

The stale smell is long gone from all of our fall clothes, and they are fresh and ready to wear!

I’ll admit that I’m a fabric softener newbie. I’ve NEVER used it and didn’t understand the need…until I used it this week. Oh my heavens our clothes smell SO good, and are super soft! There was such a difference from my previous loads of laundry!

The sheets of Bounce added extra freshness and keep the static at bay in all of our bulkier static prone clothes!

When you start to swap out your wardrobe from summer to fall, make sure to wash your clothes to freshen them up after sitting all year and don’t forget to include Tide, Downy and Bounce in your laundry routine! They are an amazing team that will keep your clothes fresh and smelling as great as possible!
