This ain't your mommas detergent

When we first moved to California, I decided to change it up with the detergent. I looked around and sniffed alot of different kinds, but made no decisions. I saw a commercial for lavender Downey and I knew instantly that it was THE one. I bought it, started using it, LOVED it.


Fast forward 3 months

My in laws came to visit. My MIL couldn't get over how good the sheets on the bed smelled. I told her what kind of detergent I was using, how she had to get some, and even showed her the bottle.

Fast forward to when she got back home

She calls me while in Target looking for the detergent. She couldn't find it, and wanted me to remind her what the name was. I went and grabbed the bottle so I could tell her. Then, in that moment, I realized my grave error.

I had been washing my laundry in fabric softener for 3 MONTHS.
{Please don't let this make you doubt my awesomeness.}
Totally forgot about this until I bought some the other day to actually use as fabric softener. Hopefully I have gotten better at label reading since then.

  15. LOL.. Okay that is great :) If you like lavender you should give Seventh Generation's Lavender laundry detergent a try. It makes my clothes smell SOOOOO Good and along with the downy fabric softner it will smell even better.
