The Smell of Clean Laundry

I am obsessed with the smell of clean laundry. Yes I know you are saying that this is normal but I am obsessed. So I ran out of laundry soap so while at the grocery store I thought I should pick some up. With my cart full due to starting at the other end of the grocery store I found myself stuck in the aisle trying to decide which kind smelled the best. Now see I grew up with Tide. Have used Tide for as long as I can remember and all I could think about was what if one smelled better. I knew if I found one I would change Laundry soaps in a second. Since I hadn't really had the chance to smell all the other 30 plus varieties offered I decided to open each one and give it a smell. I am sure I looked like a retard and I don't even know what the store workers would have said if they had caught me, but I proceeded to open them all and take a whiff. Now let me say that some were not so great. After I was done my head was spinning from so many fragrance. Oh and why on earth would they want to make laundry soap fragrance free. I mean come on. Due to my nose hurting and head spinning I grabbed the TIDE bottle and hurried to check out.
My ice cream was melting and my frozen food was now getting room temperature. Needless to say I am obsessed. Sometimes I will be thinking of the clean smell of laundry and have to just walk in the my laundry room to get that amazing smell. I love these two little shelves and what joyous scents they put off.
Bounce dryer sheets are wonderful as well. I love how they smell and when I put a load in the dryer I often throw in three or four the help out with the smell. Yes I am a freak about laundry. Now you could say this is a new obsession so I am still learning. Sometimes when I put my clothes on in the morning I am thoroughly disappointed if I cannot smell the clean laundry smell and will throw the clothes back in the hamper to wash them again, even know they are perfectly clean. I tell you I am obsessed. So for those of you who really know me.... I am going crazy. If anyone has great laundry suggestions, stories, or better smelling laundry please pass the info on. I would love it!
****Oh and on a side note I think I should invent a Laundry soap, fabric softner and dryer sheet that all smell the same. Then the laundry would all smell perfect. The three or four different smells really throws things off****

the absolute best laundry detergent you've ever smelt is victoria's secret (for your delicates). i also like surf's scent, but i've been using tide cause they have it at costco (and i must mention every time i fill the dispenser cup with the liquid i wonder how much of my life is wasted by doing so-it takes soooo long!). my favorite fabric softner: downy orange blossom-although i think they discontinued it so i've been using the lavender. mmmmmm......

oh, and there are some fabric softeners and detergents that have matchy scents. i think downy and tide teamed up and if you are at the right stores you can find matching scents.

Ok little blogger... I LOVE IT!! Trisha knows a super good smelling fabric softner... Downy something, I will let you know Friday. We just started using Tide too, due to the fact we must use 'He' only. By the way... which ice cream did you buy? James' favorite and now mine too is Breyers Natural Vanilla. SO FANTASTIC!! :)

Hey Lacy! Hopefully it doesn't weird you out that I saw your link on Ashlee's blog and looked at it haha, but I just barely started one for me and Troy and it's kinda fun to see who has one that I know. Our's is troyandamy.blogspot.com. Anyway, your blog is way cute. Have a good one!

I have been thinking about it... The fact that you smelled every detergent on the aisle is A LIE! You just wanted to get high on the fumes, didn't you?! I can see right through your little scheme little missy!

i love the laundry smell! I buy air fresheners that have that smell and I love it. I love to fold the laundry after i have washed it. It smells SOOOOO good! I am glad to see someone else is a fanatic about laundry soap as well!

Lacy I love the smell of Bounce dryer sheets too. In fact I buy the little boxes, open the lid and put them in my car as an air freshener. Then when the smell goes away, all you have to do is take out the first sheet and it all comes back. That way you can enjoy the smell of fresh laundry at home and in the car.

Lacy. I have to confess I love looking at your blog. I got it off of Lindsey's and when I saw this post I just have to tell you I am the exact same way! That is the only reason I like to do laundry! And I love your shelf full of the good scents.

The best part about this post is that I remember walking up to your house in high school and LOVING the smell of the dryer vent as I approached your door. It's only natural that you're obsessed!
