Laundry Day

So, tonight was laundry night. While I waited for the laundry to get done I was thinking about what my blog would be for the day. I started thinking about all of the great retro laundry detergent commercials. I found this one with a lady from The Electric Company! Do you remember her? She had such a distinctive voice but I can't remember any other specific clips she was in on The Electric Company.





And, how could anyone who was alive possibly forget ring around the collar!!! This is one of those commericals used to instill fear in people about their hygiene habits. Did anyone really ever concern themselves with ring around the collar before this commercial. How many people REALLY have a problem with ring around the collar anyway?? I can't say it's something I ever worry about! The screaming kids and the ladies shocked face remind me of a horror movie.



Speaking of laundry has anyone tried the Cheer dye free, fragrance free detergent?? I decided to get it. I figured no dye and fragrance was a good thing. I don't like all of that stuff. I DON'T THINK IT WORKS! All of my clothes still seem dirty! I'd like to hear anyone else's experience with this detergent. Anyone else have a dye/ fragrance free detergent that actually gets their clothes clean???

The Electric Company? the children's television show? Is she the one who always says "Hey you guys!".

Funny you should ask, because I do! ;) Please check out www.MugwortMaggies.etsy.com.

Although MugwortMaggies is a nice product - the company is not. They use to have an etsy.com account but due to so many poor reviews of HORRIBLE customer service and taking MONTHS to get your stuff I guess it crashed. It really would have been successful if the company didn't literally take customer's money and let them sit there for months waiting for their products, which was advertised as being already made and ready to ship. It is due to this that customers boycotted the company (including myself) and it seems to have gone under.
