There is a running joke that The Husband likes to trot out every morning he wakes to see that brilliant ball of sunshine bright in the sky.
“Great day for washing,” he will exclaim, his tone laced with good natured sarcasm. (One time I made the mistake about being more excited about the purpose of sunshine being to dry my copious loads of washing and it’s haunted me ever since.)
But when you have multiple piles of the below to be dealt with every day, and are conscious of not running up a huge electricity bill, seeing the sun has been the cause of morning celebrations for me. Sad, but true.
So when I was asked to trial a new product on the market, Cold Power Sensitive Touch Laundry Detergent I knew I was the perfect candidate. Considering I’ve got the combination of having a preschooler and baby in the house, and it being winter (meaning the number of clothes to be washed raises as quickly as the temperature drops) means I am often found hovering about my white-good friend.
What also intrigued me to try it was the stringent hypo-allergenic and dermatological testing that had been carried out, ensuring the highest level of protection for those, like me, who suffer with sensitive skin issues. As well, the fact they’ve partnered with the Eczema Association of Australasia (a painful condition I’ve had to combat for many years), as well as trying to ensure my baby’s fragile skin is best protected, I was eager to put Cold Power Sensitive Touch to the test.
The result? Cleanliness thankfully wasn’t forsaken at the cost of maintaining my and my daughter’s delicate skin. And being able to achieve this standard in cold water, often known to be harsh on clothes, meant my budget was breathing easier as well. Winning all round, thanks Cold Power!
The good news is you get the chance to try it as well! I’m giving away 2 packs of Cold Power Sensitive Laundry Detergent valued at $29.98. All you need to do is leave a comment below telling me what your biggest washing woe is to be in with a chance. Entry is open to Australian Residents only and the judges decision will be final. You have until 12pm Thursday July 11, 2013 to enter. (And don’t forget to leave a valid email address in case we need to contact you!)
If you too are looking for the gentler alternative to both clean your clothes and keep your skin from suffering, I’d suggest you give it Cold Power Sensitive Touch Laundry Detergent a go. It’s available in supermarkets Australia wide in both powder and liquid form and for and front loader machines. The RRP is $14.99 which I admit is pricey, but if you desperately seek a solution to skin irritations as a result of the washing powder you use, it will be money well spent.
