Snuggle Scent Shakes, Snuggle Laundry Products, Doing Laundry at home

One of the biggest revelations I had, when I moved to college, was that there was nobody there to clean up after me (shocking, I know). I quickly realized that growing up, my mom did so much behind the scenes that I never even realized. From keeping our laundry done to just overall keeping our house looking put-together and clean. After I moved out of my parent's house, I had some interesting living situations. I lived in a college dorm for one year, and man, that was a learning experience. During the rest of college, I lived in two different crappy, overpriced college apartments. I’ve lived in my current house for 3 years now, and that combined with my college living experiences (and a few awesome products) taught me some important tips and tricks for keeping your home looking put-together all the time.

The first time I did laundry after I moved out on my own, I had no idea what I was doing. I thought I didn't need to use anything other than regular, old laundry soap to wash my clothes...I was wrong. I instantly realized that Snuggle® products gave my clothes that "home-y" feeling and scent that I missed so much. I grew up around Snuggle® products. My mom used them when she washed my clothes for my entire childhood and early adult life. Snuggle® just came out with a new product that I love so much! The Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ Blue Sparkle® and the Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ Superfresh® Original from Dollar General! These are in-wash scent boosters that give your clothes and bedding that long-lasting “just washed freshness” that we all know and love. I’m not gonna lie...I can be kind of lazy when it comes to washing my sheets and towels, but these scent boosters keep them smelling fresh every single day in between washes. These really helped shake up my old laundry routine - it’s a lot more enjoyable now!

I’m not here to talk about laundry though, I’m here to tell you some of my favorite life hacks and tips that you can use in your own home. There are three basic areas that I focus on to keep my house looking always put-together, even on the days it’s far from perfect! Life is busy, and nobody has time to clean their house every single day (at least I sure don’t). That doesn’t mean your house can’t look put-together and clean though! Personally, I think if your home smells great, it seems 100% more put-together - and I about to spill all my secrets!

First up, let’s talk about smells. You might have pets, kids, a stinky boyfriend or husband - the list goes on and on. It was a constant battle for me to find ways to make our house smell great until I started using Snuggle® Scent Shakes™. They eliminate tough odors that linger in your home (admit it, we all have them), and they are my #1 secret weapon that I always have on hand. The best part is, the fresh scent is not just a one-day thing - it lasts up to 100 days of freshness out of storage!

Nick and I live in a really old house, and sometimes that musty 100-year-old-house-smell makes an appearance. Ever since Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ came out, I am ready to battle any stench that tries to make a “home” in my home. I use these in every single load of laundry I do. Think about it; when you walk into a room that has a candle lit and freshly washed bedding, it makes you feel good inside. Sometimes we forget how much smell can impact our daily life!

You’ve used Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ on your laundry, and now that smells great. But what about things you can’t throw in the washing machine, like your couch? Any lingering home odors are no match for this tip - and the best part is that it’s super simple! Since you can’t throw your couch in the washing machine, wash your favorite throw pillows and blankets with Snuggle® Scent Shakes™. Put them back on your couch and just like that, your home has a long-lasting amazing scent that radiates throughout the living room! This is one of my favorite life hacks ever, and you can use it whenever your home needs a little boost.

Great smelling rooms and laundry make a huge difference in how put-together your home looks and feels. If you want your house to look put-together, wash your laundry, towels, and throw blankets/pillows with Snuggle® Scent Shakes™. Your home will instantly feel more cozy and inviting, and it will smell like you spent all day cleaning.

My third tip is to focus on laundry and dishes. I've noticed that the two main sources of stress when it comes to my home are laundry and dishes. When these are done, even if the rest of the house is in shambles, I feel much more put-together and relaxed. The easiest way to stay on top of this for me is to wash the dishes we use at the end of every day so they don’t pile up. For laundry, I bought smaller laundry baskets that are the exact size of a load in our washing machine. We have a really small washer and dryer, so using smaller laundry baskets helps me visually see when it’s time to do a load of laundry. The huge baskets we were using before held 4-5 loads of laundry, and that got really overwhelming! When I see one of our tiny laundry baskets getting full, I throw in a load of laundry (with my Snuggle® Scent Shakes™, of course). It’s as simple as that! Don’t let it build up, or you will get really overwhelmed.

Having an always-put-together home is easier than you’d think. By focusing on these three main areas of my home, I keep it looking (and smelling) like a million bucks. Trust me, if I can do it, you can too! It all starts with how your home smells. Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ are the only scent boosters I trust enough to use in my home.

If this post didn’t convince you to go out and fill a shopping cart with the new Snuggle® Scent Shakes™, nothing will. They didn’t have this product around when I was growing up, but I wish they did! I am officially a lifelong Snuggle® user. Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ are perfect for my life now as a renter and a girlfriend, and they will also be a staple when I am a mom and wife. I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of this adulting thing! I usually pick up my Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ at Dollar General, but you can also find them at other retailers like Kroger, Walmart, Family Dollar, or Target.
