    Hmm, I'm not sure, since I use liquid for regular laundry. They said it would say on the box...

    Man I couldn't live without those swiffer things. Those ones that come with the little brush handle rock!
    Tide for Laundry
    Good old Comet for the Bathroom (I have tried countless other bathroom cleaners and have never found anything to be as good as that ol' fashion powder.)
    Mr. Clean & a mop just about everywhere else.
    I knew everything at 18, and know nothing at 38.
    I'm happier knowing nothing.

    Has anyone tried the new liquid 'All' laundry detergent in the tiny little bottle, yet? Just curious.

    I haven't but all this talk about laundry reminded me of the Clorox bleach pen, awesome! And the Tide with the scrubbing brush, both great for laundry!

    Haven't tried it, but I use the regular liquid all in the huge bottle. I think it is the same, just more concentrated. I haven't bought it yet, though. Still have tons of the other left.

    I am totally loving the new Tide with Downy. I saw that they are also selling Tide with Febreze in it, but I haven't tried that yet. The one with Downy makes my clothes smell so divine and I don't even need to remember to add fabric softner. The smell might be too heavy for those sensitive to such things, but I usually don't like heavy aromas and I love this stuff. You smell clean and fresh like Downy all day.

    I love the new Tide pens, the tip is similar to the tip of a magic marker. Works great plus I can carry it in my purse. I used to keep those Shout wipes around but I like the Tide pen better.
    For stains at home I keep a Spray & Wash Stain Stick upstairs and in the laundry room. I like that you can use the stain stick and then throw the clothes in the hamper and don't have to wash them right away.

    I've been doing a bit (well, okay, a lot) of remodeling over the past few weeks. A friend recommended Krud Kutter to cut all the grease on the kitchen walls before repainting. It did a great job, but removed paint as well, so I wouldn't recommend it for washing walls, but it instantly removes every bit of accumulated junk on appliances. I've never seen anything do such a great job so effortlessly.

    I used to use Arm & Hammer laundry soap until they started putting scent in it so I switched to Purex. I have to watch the scents since I break out with a rash over just about anything scented. WalMart has an unscented fabric softener that I can get away with.

    The Works for the bathroom
    Whatever's cheap for dusting
    Windex wipes for the windows
    Barkeeper's Friend for the sink and LimeAway for the shower

    I use perfume- and die free laundry detergent, usually Tide "Free" or Seventh Generation detergent. I use Bleach-free bleach in all my loads and double rinse. Fragrance-free Bounce sheets in the dryer. Dish soap, TP and paper towels are all Seventh Generation. It's earth and people friendly. The cleaners are all made of edible ingredients (like almond, lemon, etc. ) nothing that can harm if ingested, and nothing that will harm as it washes down the drain and into the environment. Seventh Generation paper products are recycled and unbleached -- and contain no formaldehydes. Our hand soaps are Aveeno and hair products are Calia, which is wonderful and can be customized with scented oils that create unique performance characteristics. We went environmentally friendly because we were developing so many allergies. They came up when we renovated and installed new laminate countertops. The MDF in the countertop contained formaldehyde. We learned that there is formaldehyde-free MDF for the same cost (formaldehyde is used as a binding agent) but it's not requested often. Once our immune systems reacted it never went back to normal. It's a pain in the butt! Earth friendly products are more expensive but worth it. Did you know that all popular brands of toothpaste are toxic if swallowed? I use the Jason brand now. It took a bit of getting used to.
