I was shopping with my in-laws for A’s cousin’s wedding when the distress call came. A sounded harrowed and helpless as a bawling A Jr in the background made it difficult for him to talk. All I could make out was A Jr’s shirt and some function. I excused myself stating the possible predicament, amidst my sister-in-law’s guffaws and my mother-in-law’s my-holier-than-thou-son-has-to-do-laundry rant, to don my trouble-shooter hat for my men in not so shining armour currently. 😦
‘I followed all your instructions, I swear. I pre-soaked the clothes and put two whole spoonfuls of detergent in the washing machine. Yet his mucky muddy clothes are just as soiled. He’s crying his eyes out saying he has some school function and won’t wear them now. What do I do? Next time take him with you, please!’ beseeched A. All I could suggest at that point was to make do with a different shirt for now and leave the matter till I get back.
Luckily for me (and him), A was never the one to throw his weight around the house expecting to be treated like the husband. His highly questionable expertise in the kitchen apart, he has actually been a big help to me in daily domestic chores. It might even seem like, quite early on, we made some sort of silent agreement to share and divide the responsibilities that come with a family.
Laundry, though, was a different ball game altogether. While I did all kinds of trials and errors, like pre-soaking overnight, brushing, adding more detergent, etc. to get rid of the stains A Jr could surprisingly smear his clothes with almost everyday, A didn’t have the patience to obsess so much over clothes. His helping hand needed to be armed with a force to be reckoned with.
Hence, when this Ariel Matic #LaundryGoesOddEven activity came up on BlogAdda, I jumped at the opportunity to hopefully find a permanent feasible solution to our laundry problems! If the claims made in it’s commercials were anything to go by, it seemed like I had a winner on my hands. 🙂
Normally, every time I wash clothes I have to use 2 spoonfuls of detergent. However, with Ariel Matic, one spoonful was enough.
Not only did it clean the dirty clothes, their colours also looked fresh and bright. Generally in case of other detergents it seems like the clothes are ageing with every wash. Ariel Matic is a definite exception.
I even got A to agree to be a part of a short video I made while he was doing the laundry. Sadly, he didn’t face the camera even once.
While I had already tried other so-called detergent powders meant for washing machine use, there was a marked difference between others and Ariel Matic. It surprises you with how easy it is to rid your clothes of dirt and stains, and yourself, of apprehensions and tensions by simply replacing your washing powder.
Thanks to Ariel Matic, the calendar in our household is surely getting an odd-even demarcation for laundry days and I can’t stress enough upon how relaxing this is! I can finally unhurriedly solve my beloved crossword puzzles in the morning over a leisurely cup of Masala Chai and cookies while A waits for his turn to do the same. Win-win situation for us both! 🙂 🙂
