A few years ago, I made a deal with my husband, Doug, – if you are going to watch football all day, you have to do the laundry. That was over 6 years ago and now he has grown very particular about how the laundry gets done. He will make sure all the laundry is done prior to when Alma, our house cleaning person, comes on Thursdays. Doug is brand loyal. We used Tide for an HE washer, Downy, and Bounce.
