What Does How You Wash Your Clothes Say About You?

A few weeks ago, we published a post titled Hi I’m A Young Naija Wife And I Hate Washing Anything. Who Is With Me? and the feedback with incredible. We all had a good laugh reading about how some of us have routines for doing laundry and even what brands of detergent you prefer. I remember pointing out that some commenters were probably brand managers for some of the brands mentioned because of the passion they displayed in defending these brands. Lo and behold, turns out I was wrong because some weeks after, some of the concerned brand managers reached out to us. Basically, you spoke and they listened – I’m sure some of you don;t even know how much power you have.

Anyways, as an extension of the conversation, we will now like to collect specific feedback regarding attitude towards washing. We’ve come up with the very simple poll below which is short is a straight forward. Kindly take the survey and then share your thoughts in the comment sections below.

    I hate washing clothes let alone someone else clothes. The thought of holding someone dirty clothes is repulsive! Soap doesn’t matter to me as long as it does the job I care less about the brand. Lately, though it been Sunlight and Dudu Osun.

    I didn’t answer a bunch of the questions because for me it’s not about the price or quality, it’s about the fragrance. I actually don’t compare prices when it comes to certain things on my shopping list. I write sunlight as opposed to detergent.

      I swear! It is really about the fragrance for me. Then the price…the more expensive the better I believe it is (endowment effect)

      Tell them oh, sunlight even peels my skin but the smell makes it all bearable plus persil money can be used for more pressing matters
      1. Ibiela
        Lmao… I agree about the persil money my dear. Sorry about your skin peeling. I honestly can’t bare the thought of washing clothes myself

    Basically Ariel for whites, Sunlight for the coloured clothing. It’s more like a compulsive purchase now. Don’t think I’d ever switch; and I can’t even remember how and why they became my detergents of choice too

    If there’s anything I don’t want to ever have to do again in my life, it’s washing; unfortunately, I’m not that rich; yet. Growing up, I washed enough to last for a lifetime. As the last child, everyone could dump their clothes for me to wash and me? Had no one to dump on, so wash I did. Now, I wash only when it becomes absolutely necessary. When I go to buy detergent, the only consideration is; does it foam?

    Is it only me or does Mo look like Dej loaf?.. anyhoo back to this detergents.. cos I don’t buy detergent for d house means I can’t complete d survey? Ahan, I buy my own detergent for my clothes na, cos I tend to use a lot, can’t cope with feeling guilty for finishing d family soaps man.
    When I buy detergents I look out for one that’s very effective in getting the stains out but also has a pleasant fragrance, I used to only do Ariel in the past but these days I mostly use Sunlight, but I think Ariel is stronger on the stains.

    Sunlight smells really good, but Ariel is IT for stains (they could do better with the fragrance though.)
    Omo tows the Ariel line.

    Ever heard of WaW? They’re upcoming methinks, but they ain’t bad at all in the fragrance department.
