.: Laundry :.

(I am on a role today with this blogging thing...)

I LOVE doing laundry. Seriously. I like sorting... and loading... and switching... and folding... and ironing... it's kind of ridiculous, really. What I love most is the smell of the laundry (post-washing, that is). On that note...

What the hell happened to all of the purple All laundry detergent!?!?!

It was my favorite detergent, cleaned and softened...I bought it at Nob Hill (grocery store next to the laundromat where I washed my clothes one day), because I forgot my other stuff. OH MY GOSH. I fell in love with it. Now, when you only wash for one, you don't run out of laundry soap all that quickly. (Segue to a fun-filled night...)

One crazy spring night, I decided to do some laundry (I was out of clothing). Not willing to settle for just any laundry soap, I took some friends on a fun little adventure to figure out where the heck I bought the stuff to begin with. After hitting up Rite Aid, 2 Long's Drugs, 2 Safeways, Walgreen's and Kmart, we decided to try one last place before taking our quest into Santa Cruz. "We have a winner!" The joyous shout was finally proclaimed after an hour of this madness... let's just say my poor poor friends were relieved that I finally found it at Nob Hill... and made my buy 2 bottles so we wouldn't be doing this again anytime soon.

Now, imagine my disappointment the last time I was at Nob Hill, only to find that they no longer carry "All Cleans and Softens" (in the opaque purple bottle). It was devastating. I bought the regular kind, but now it's almost gone again.

Today I decided to solve this matter once and for all. I went on All's website. I searched and searched, but to no avail. Then I noticed that they are on this "small and mighty" kick...and one of them has fabric softener in it. Could it be? Does my favorite detergent simply have a newer, smaller, more potent look?

More to follow...

I use a purplish/blue All that is "tough on stains." I like it. You should convert.
