Kitchen and Laundry Products

Okay yall are going to think I'm weird.  But that's okay, I probably am.  I mean, aren't we all in our own little ways?

So I'm big on using the same products that my parents used growing up and it hasn't ever stopped.  I don't care what's on sale, I still buy the same things and stock up when I do see a good deal.

Dawn cuts grease like no other.  Period.

Cascade for the dishwasher and recently I started using the little packets - SO much easier than the below.

This is the biggest thing that I'm a stickler on....Bounty paper towels.  My friends, when I was in grade school and we had science fair, I did one of my projects on the absorbency of paper towels.  Bounty wins, no questions. 

Tide laundry detergent...essential.  Don't mess up a good thing!

Did you all ever feel like other people have a smell (like their laundry)?  You know what I'm talking about!  The Tide/Bounce combo is what I've always been used to and what I'll always use. 
And I had never met ANYONE that used this exact combo until I met.........Kevin.  How funny is that?!  Super random and I can't believe I'm even writing about something so tacky but it's hilarious!

So funny! I use almost all the same products! I like the Green Apple Dawn. So yummy smelling! I have started using the dishwasher packets, too. Super easy, but I do still have the Cascade under the sink.
You gotta stick with what works--the oldies but goodies!

another great thing about Dawn....mix 1 cup into an empty gallon size milk jug, fill the rest with water--makes the best bubble mix ever! share that with Miss Anna Kate next time :)

That is great that y'all use the same brands! My husband loves the Bounce dryer sheets...memory from his childhood. Do you like the tablets for the dishwaher? I feel like the liquid is best but maybe I should try the tablets?!

I'm a Tide/Bounce girl!! Even when I was in college and didn't have much cash, I always HAD TO buy Tide and Bounce :)

I also use the heck out of some Comet. My mother used it to clean everything, and I can't seem to accept any other cleaner. Well, Pine Sol I suppose!

LOVE Dawn. I'm a Gain laundry detergent girl myself :)

I've always wondered if Bounty really was the most absorbent paper towel. I thought it was, but now I have confirmation :)
