Wait! Don't go!
I didn't buy this Tide liquid laundry detergent. Like the paper towels she stuffs under the sink, this "essential" was brought by my visiting mother.
It's been a long time since I last used Tide. How much detergent do you put in one load, anyway? You'd be hard pressed to tell from the faint white "one load" line in the middle of the cap. Apparently, my husband has been using the full-cap, 3-load amount for each wash.
I'm certainly not going to tell a husband-who's-nice-enough-to-do-wash how to do the wash. Instead, I took a Sharpie and marked the one-load line a little clearer.
If your children do their own laundry, drawing a line on the cap might stretch your liquid detergent a little farther. If you really want to toe the line, draw it a little less than one load.
