Trader Joe's Citrus & Sandalwood Scent Laundry Detergent Packs
I've never bought laundry detergent packs before. But when I spotted this new item at Trader Joe's, I decided to give it a try.
(Full confession: It was sitting next to the dishwasher detergent packets, and I thought it was a new version of them. Neither the name of the product--prominently featuring the word LAUNDRY--nor the package design--prominently featuring items of clothing--registered with me. I actually used these packets in my dishwasher about five times before I noticed that I was doing it wrong. Don't judge me. It's hard being senile.)
I generally don't want scents in my cleaning products, but what there is here is exceedingly mild and pleasant. I have to stick my nose right down in the bag to even notice anything, and there is no trace of it left on my clothes, as far as I can detect.
The clothes end up clean. Handling the packs is far more convenient than measuring out liquid detergent, dealing with drips, and so on. I can see why packs are rapidly gaining market share on liquids. I've previously avoided them because they're quite expensive compared to liquids, but these from TJ's are pretty cheap.
Will I buy it again?
To my surprise, I think it's going to be a yes. I'm digging the ease of tossing one in the washer tub.
