As a mom of boys, I am sure you can imagine the struggles I have faced with laundry odours. (And other odours too. Thank goodness for Febreze in a teenaged boy's room!) Sweat socks, football gear, karate gi - they can all get pretty fragrant. And those nasty smells can be difficult to banish completely from many fabrics, particularly man-made varieties.
Have you ever noticed your freshly washed clothes suddenly smelling a bit musty or sweaty again soon after you put them on? Or maybe it's a funny damp smell on the towels you just took out of the linen closet. This, my friends, is called "rebloom," and it's frustrating. The bacteria that cause those odours may be only masked or not fully removed by many detergents, so when a bit of body heat or moisture hits, the smell flares up again.
The collection includes three products designed to work together for maximum performance. Each has its own role and they combine for the best odour-eliminating results.
TIDE PODS PLUS FEBREZE ODOR DEFENSE: This 4-in-1 laundry detergent pac cleans odours from fabrics while removing residue and surface stains. (MSRP $16.99)
DOWNY FRESH PROTECT WITH FEBREZE ODOR DEFENSE: Downy’s motion-activated beads eliminate and combat odours while also sealing in the odour protection technology so clothes stay fresh all day long. Add it at the start of the wash cycle. Available in Active Fresh and Fresh Blossom scents. (MSRP $12.99)
TIDE ODOR RESCUE WITH FEBREZE ODOR DEFENSE: This in-wash booster deep cleans to remove dirt and odours that have gotten trapped down in fibers. Add to your wash along with the pods and Downy Fresh Protect with Febreze Odor Defense, and let it do the heavy stain and odor lifting for you. (MSRP $12.99)
