This month I’d like to talk about a simple way to save money. Saving money is like tax free income and puts money in my bank account I would not otherwise have.
Consumer’s Report did a great article on effectiveness versus price of laundry detergent. I personally find the price per use misleading as it is based on an unrealistic quantity of the product. The conclusion I drew from Consumer’s Report is
- Wisk Deep Clean this is liquid costs 14 cents per load. It scored an 80 out of 100.
- Costco’s Kirkland Signature Ultra Clean this is powder and runs 9 cents per load. It scored 73.
- Target Up and Up is liquid and is 13 cents per load and scored 69 out of 100.
Both of those “best buys” are much cheaper than Tide Ultra plus Bleach Vivid White + Bright HE (powder), the highest-ranked laundry detergent of all. At 23 cents a load, the Tide offering got an 82 yet failed to clinch the magazine’s seal of approval.
