CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tide.ca ~ Tide Free & Gentle and Ultra Downy Free and Sensitive Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Did you know that almost half (41%) of Cana­di­ans cite rough clothes as the lead­ing skin irri­tant?** With win­ter approach­ing, kids are get­ting excited for their favourite out­door activ­i­ties like ski­ing, skat­ing and tobog­gan­ing. Mean­while, par­ents worry about keep­ing their lit­tle ones warm and cozy, as some of the warmest woolen clothes can feel rough and scratchy.

Car­ing for win­ter cloth­ing is just one of the many chal­lenges Cana­dian par­ents face every win­ter.  So help out your fol­low­ers by offer­ing a help­ing hand in the laun­dry room – so they can focus on sur­viv­ing the win­ter and hav­ing fun with the fam!

Cana­di­ans are soft­ies for rough win­ter clothes.

Recent sur­vey reveals almost half of Cana­di­ans (41%) cite rough cloth­ing as the lead­ing skin irri­tant in the win­ter months.

TORONTO, ONTARIO (Decem­ber 1, 2010) – From win­ter wool sweaters to cozy scarves – the time has come for Cana­di­ans to bun­dle up and keep warm this win­ter. How­ever, for the nearly half of Cana­di­ans (41%) who indi­cate that rough clothes are the lead­ing skin irri­tant in the win­ter months, the cold weather means more than just extra lay­ers. This win­ter, Ultra Downy Free & Sen­si­tive is help­ing Cana­di­ans get the best of their win­ter wardrobe by offer­ing out­stand­ing clean­ing and soft­en­ing to care for even the rough­est of win­ter woolens.

“As a mother I want to ensure that my fam­ily has the best care dur­ing the harsh Cana­dian win­ter months and that means mak­ing sure that the clothes that touch their skin are clean, com­fort­able and soft,” says Mau­reen Den­nis, Founder and Pres­i­dent, Wee Wel­come Inc.  “When­ever pos­si­ble, I try to use per­fume and dye free prod­ucts like Ultra Downy Free & Sen­si­tive, as I know it is der­ma­tol­o­gist tested and will keep my family’s win­ter wear excep­tion­ally soft.”

In Canada, win­ter­time means wear­ing more cloth­ing and pro­tect­ing our skin from the harsh cli­mates.  But, as we’re bundling up to keep warm, we should also think about how to best care for our gar­ments. To help Cana­di­ans get through the harsh win­ter weather with their wardrobes intact, here are a few other inter­est­ing fab­ric and cloth­ing care tips and tidbits:

Freshen Up Your Win­ter Wear
As you unpack your win­ter clothes, be sure to air out or con­sider wash­ing those items that have been stored for the year.
TIP: If you’re look­ing for a dye and per­fume free option when laun­der­ing your clothes, try Downy Free & Sen­si­tive – it is der­ma­tol­o­gist tested and offers out­stand­ing clean­ing and softening.

On The Mend
Your win­ter wardrobe may have gone through some wear and tear in the last sea­son. Be sure to have a good look through last year’s clothes and try to sew, patch and mend items that you truly love.
TIP: For fine fab­rics it is worth the invest­ment to take gar­ments to a tai­lor who may be able to repair items that might be costly to replace.

Trim The Wardrobe Fat
Win­ter clothes are bulky and take up a lot of space – be sure to purge your wardrobe of any­thing you haven’t worn in over a year and think of donat­ing to a local char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tion.
TIP: Ensure clothes are at their best before donat­ing by wash­ing with Tide Free & Gen­tle – it is made with­out dyes and per­fumes and pro­vides a great clean that’s gen­tle on skin.

Pack the Stack
Hang­ing sweaters can leave your favourite woolens mis­shapen or dam­aged due to the weight of win­ter wools. Be sure to fold and stack your sweaters in a cool, dry place to help keep them look­ing like new.
TIP: Ensure win­ter wools are as soft as pos­si­ble by using a dye and per­fume free fab­ric soft­ener such as Ultra Downy Free & Sen­si­tive.

I was sent both of the Tide Free & Gen­tle and Ultra Downy Free & Sen­si­tive prod­ucts to review, and LOVE them both so much!! I am already a ded­i­cated Tide user, and have been for years. The Tide Free & Gen­tle is great. It takes out stains, cleans my clothes won­der­fully, and gives you con­fi­dence to know you are get­ting your money’s worth. Tide is not a watered– down prod­uct like many other deter­gents out there. I love Tide Free most of all; cause it doesn’t irri­tate my sen­si­tive skin.

Ultra Downy Free & Sen­si­tive is free of dyes and per­fumes. It smoothes fibers so clothes feel soft for the fam­ily. Ultra Downy is the lead­ing liq­uid fab­ric soft­ener for­mu­lated to help keep col­ors bright and reduce fad­ing by reduc­ing the dulling effect chlo­rine has dur­ing the wash cycle. Most peo­ple don’t think about it, but the same chem­i­cals used to purify your water, like chlo­rine, can fade your clothes. The colder the water, the higher the chlo­rine con­tent. Most rinse cycles today only have one choice — cold water. Help pro­tect your cloth­ing invest­ment by adding Ultra Downy to your loads. In com­par­ing cost per load, not just cost per ounce, shop­pers know they use less Ultra Downy because it’s con­cen­trated. Many prod­ucts are not con­cen­trated, so remem­ber to look for load markings.

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Tide Canada have gra­ciously offered to give 1 lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win 1 bot­tle of the Tide Free & Gen­tle and 1 bot­tle of Ultra Downy Free and Sen­si­tive! SWEET!!
