This top travel laundry detergent post is part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™
In the summer months, we do a lot of traveling with the family. That means lots of hours driving in the car. We pack it up and we pack it tight. We load enough gear in the car for 6 people ya’ll. And one of them is a baby. That means a lot of gear. That also means we will have a lot of laundry during the trip.
Instead of packing a ton of clothes, we pack a basic amount and plan to do laundry along the way. The space it takes to pack a little laundry detergent means I can save a ton of space versus the amount of space it would take to pack more clothes for 6 people.
Before packing detergent used to be a challenge. You’d have to worry about it leaking. Or you’d portion out some detergent into smaller bottles and you’d have to carefully measure, guessing how many loads you might have over the trip so you’d have enough.
Or you’d take the entire detergent bottles, which took up a lot of space. It could become quite a challenge, burden, and a little messy. Am I right? Well, I have a solution for you!
My new favorite travel laundry detergent is the new Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® for three main reasons. Let me tell you why.
Why Tide® PODS™are the Top Travel Laundry Detergent
Compact. The benefits of the Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® is that it’s compact. It combines not only the detergent but also the stain remover, brightener, and fabric softener all in these 2 convenient little pods!
That means instead of packing 4 different bulky laundry products, I just pack the one Tide® PODS™ package. That saves a lot of space! I mean, which would you rather pack? Four Bulky containers or just one Tide® PODS™ package?
And because they are simple little pods, I don’t have to guess about the amount I’ll need for the laundry loads. I know 1 pod for 1 load. Or 2 pods for larger loads. So simple to figure out how many pods I will need for our trip.
I just keep one of the Tide® PODS™ canisters and fill it with the number of pods we will need for our trip, and a few extra just in case. Cause remember, we have a baby…you have to be prepared. Accidents happen.
No Leaking. Because the Tide® PODS™ are pods, they don’t leak like regular liquid detergents. That means if the canister tips over, I don’t have to worry about liquid detergents oozing out and getting all over our luggage making an ooey, gooey mess.
That is the worst right? Totally been there, done that. It sucked.
Or with powdered detergent, we’ve had the packaging rip and leave powdered detergent scattered everywhere and that was a nightmare to get out of the luggage as well. Or even worse…out of our toiletries and electronics. Yeah, that wasn’t fun.
Just keep the pods in the canister and you never have to worry about leaks again!
Work in ALL Machines. When traveling you never know what kind of machine you will run into right? From laundry mats to your family’s machines, they will all be different.
The Tide® PODS™ are specially designed to work in all washing machines. They work in standard and HE washing machines. Plus they dissolve in all water temperatures, so you don’t have to worry about not having access to hot water either. Because they dissolve and work just as great in cold water! And they protect clothes from damage in the wash.
Now I can rest assured that all my clothes will be clean as we travel because I trust the Tide® brand. The Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® delivers the same Tide clean you expect from the Tide brand.
So even though we are away from home, I can still get our clothes just as clean as though I was washing them in my own washing machine at home. Without any worry of leaks, mess, or extra hassle of packing. Just grab extra Tide® PODS™ into a canister for the trip and toss it into the van with our luggage. And we are good to go.
The Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® are the easiest travel laundry detergent to pack and delivers the best cleaning. So you can put your focus back where it should be, on creating lasting memories with your family on your travels instead on worrying about the leaking slimy detergent mess in the back of the car.

**Like all household products, KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! Tide PODS® are not toys, candy or a fun stress ball pack. Which is exactly what they look like to children. So always keep your Tide PODS® stored in the original container, sealed tightly and high up out of child’s reach!**
