The Monster

We all have one…

It can live anywhere in your house…

It can follow you from room to room…

Sometimes it can follow you when you leave the house…


It is exactly what all of our nightmares are made of and then some.

It’s name? Yes, it has a name and it is one that we have all heard since we were little children. We cringe when we hear it and it can bring the bravest mom to tears and cause her to hide in fear.

The Monster is called Laundry.

It multiplies in rooms all over the house. In bathroom, bedrooms, hallways, and once in awhile (if you have a toddler like me) the kitchen and living room.

I swear that it multiplies faster than bunnies.

But I have found a way to battle the Monster and win. Yes! There is a solution (actually there is more than one but buying new clothes each week is expensive).

Really, there are a couple solutions.

1. Make the kids do the laundry.
2. Hire a maid.
3. Find a fun laundry soap.

Did that last one throw you off? Well, I did find a laundry soap that’s kinda fun and it’s healthy! Yes, healthy. Ology by Walgreens is a healthy laundry soap and by that I mean it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.

Walgreens has an entire new line of healthy products for the entire family such as; baby and personal care products, as well as household cleaners. They even have light bulbs and paper products that are 100 percent tree-free and made from readily renewable resources. To make it even better they’re very affordable, cool, huh?

Ology_productOkay, so maybe there isn’t a laundry detergent or anything really that can ever get rid of the Monster, but at least it will keep it at bay for a while, right?

Next time you’re in Walgreens take a look at the new Ology product line and see what you think!

Also… I’m pretty sure that we have kids to do laundry.

I was provided with some of the Ology products to try out, but all the thoughts, opinions, and piles of laundry are 100% mine.

    I’m not sure I can buy the fun angle, but I’ll jump on the affordable part. I wonder how much money I spend on laundry? I bet it is a ton!

    P.S. At what age do you put them to work doing laundry?!? Is 5 too young?

    You forgot one solutions!! THROW AWAY THE CLOTHING. God, I wish I could do that. Just pitch it all. Everyone gets 2 outfits per season. All of it made of denim. Denim shirts. Denim jeans. DARK underwear that can be washed with all of that denim. And only 4 socks apiece. THAT’S IT. You wear one, you wash one.

    Sounds blissful…

      Awesome idea!! Not so sure that my teen girls will like it but it could help convince them to do laundry!
