Laundry is such a double-edged sword... you have to do the laundry, but what does laundry ever do for you? Okay, trick question - because when your laundry looks good, you can look good... but what about the environment? With families like ours becoming more and more conscious about doing right by the world around us, we're always on the lookout for new products that not only make a kinder footprint, but those that actually work - ones that get the job done. NEW! Tide purclean is the first bio-based detergent with the cleaning power of Tide (and as many of you know, I've written about Tide in the past). So what's great about it? I'll tell ya...

Tide purclean

Crafted with 65% bio-based materials, Tide purclean provides the trusted cleaning power and stain removal that you dig, certified by the USDA BioPreferred Program. The formula is made with 100% renewable energy... from wind. The bottle is 100% recyclable. And, Tide purclean is manufactured at a facility with ZERO waste to landfill. 


Completely new-to-market, Tide purclean is available now at your local Target store, where while supplies last, you can snag some valuable savings with a $1 off hangtag coupon (good through 7/30/16) that can actually be planted (!) for a special surprise. What kind of plant seeds are inside it is a mystery, but we just planted ours to see what happens. Beyond that, users of the Target Cartwheel App can score some additional savings with a discount of 5% now through July 30, 2016. Don't have the Cartwheel App yet? Get details on the official website, then download the App for iOS (through the App Store) or for Android (via Google Play) to start saving every time you shop at Target. 


With The Rock Daughters sometimes going through 2-3 (even 4-5) "costume changes" per day over the summer - we do a lot of laundry here at Rock Father HQ. To handle what two little girls can dish out, it's always great to have the cleaning power of Tide on our side.
