Tide’s “Take A Load Off” Facebook Sweepstakes

In honor of Earth Day, you can “Take A Load Off” the energy grid, your wallet, and the environment by making a simple change – washing your clothes in cold water. Did you know that heating water while doing laundry can account for up to 80 percent of the energy used per wash load in the U.S.? It’s an easy change to make with Tide Coldwater, which is specially formulated to get clothes clean in cold water.

I have talked about Tide Coldwater detergent before on my blog and shared how my clothes were just as clean using this product and washing in cold water as they were when I washed with hot water. The bonus of this detergent is that, not only does it save energy, but it saves a lot of money which everyone is looking to do these days!

Make the Promise to switch to washing in cold water on the Future Friendly Facebook page and you’ll be entered to win a High Efficiency Washer and Dryer and a one-year supply of Tide Coldwater! You can enter once a day to increase your chances of winning these awesome prizes. A new winner will be picked each week through May 13th so there are lots of chances to win. You can enter the sweepstakes here.

Tide Coldwater Challenge

Tide is the laundry detergent brand my mom always used when I was growing up. Back then I didn’t think about “energy efficiency” or low electric bills. In fact, I normally left lights on all throughout the house without a second thought. Now that I’m living on my own though, saving money is very important to me so I’m glad that the same brand that my family trusted growing up is now one that is helping cut energy costs.

Tide has come out with a new product called Tide Coldwater that can get clothes clean with the added bonus of reducing your energy bill when you switch to washing your clothes in cold water. The new Tide detergent smells great and filled up my whole laundry room with it’s fresh scent. I washed a load in cold water and found that the clothes were just as clean as they would have been had I used hot water.

I think you should take the Tide Coldwater challenge and try washing clothes in cold water using this detergent and see what you think. Switching to cold water is an easy way to help the environment and save some money in the process!
