The thing about kids is they're always making messes. While I would like to pretend they never get dirty, that's just part of life. When kids play and really have fun, they're bound to wind up getting a little dirty. The best days end in dirty clothes around here.
In a house with two little ones, our laundry is always overflowing. I could whine about it, but it means that my boys are having fun and enjoying their childhood, which we all know is going to fly by.
Ice cream drips on their shirts and pants? Well, that means we sat outside and indulged in a yummy treat after (or maybe before) dinner. Grass stains on knees and butts? That means we went to the playground, ran around, and went down lots of slides.
One of the great things about having two boys is that we're able to reuse clothes. We try our best to keep Charlie's clothes in great shape so that Owen is able to wear them a couple of years later.
I love adding Downy Fabric Conditioner to our regular laundry routine. Instead of clothes losing their shape, clothes bounce back to their store-bought form. And Charlie's shirts will stay their true color and resist fading, making them really last to be passed down.
Check out what Charlie has to say about having his clothes washed in Downy!
Of course, there are other things we do to extend the life of our clothing:
- washing clothes inside out
- washing on the gentle cycle
- drying on low heat
- treating stains as early as possible
Downy Fabric Conditioner is available at Walmart and Walmart.com for everyday low prices. Learn more and shop for it here.
To remind us that those crazy kids and the overwhelming pile of dirty clothes is just our family having a great day, I created this printable and popped it in a frame to hang over our laundry hamper. You can print one out for your house just by clicking the image below.
With everything we do to protect our clothes, why not do something as simple as pour Downy Fabric Conditioner into every load of laundry? With the simple filling of a cap, you can give your clothes a longer, happier life!
