Tide is definately my favorite, but I will NEVER pay for the Tide price, not even with a coupon. I really like the Arm and Hammer and now use their “green” version, or earth friendly version. But yes, it would be interesting to see how they all compare.
I threw a load of kids clothes in the wash today, and they were the dirtiest clothes…….just disgusting. My 7 year old really knows how to get stuff thilthy. I threw in some oxy clean with that load.
Oxy clean is another one of those things that is expensive, but I do use it when I have a really thilthy or stinky load to do. Kelly

do a school project. It was on comparing liquid laundry detergent.
took white sample cloths and put dye on one, grease, lipstick etc and
let them sit for 2 hours before washing. Everything had to be the same
sit times and water temp etc. Then she would do the next cloth and
start the process again.
Well she compared the famous well known
brands and then the cheap ones. The Arm & Hammer liquid won without a
doubt. The teachers were impressed.
You all should do a test like
that. Don’t pay extra just because of the commercial.

longer. So I would really interested to know too.
