If you’ve been keeping up with my escapades, you know that I returned to NYC for the second time in as many weeks. This time is was not to cover fashion, but to learn more about one of the things that enables me to take care of the clothing that I so thoughtfully invest in. Wisk and LaundryHE invited several of us social-media types to my adopted city to learn a bit about regular versus HE detergent.
Is this the part where I confess to you that I couldn’t even begin to guess the difference before Tuesday night? Now however, well, let’s just say you’re reading the random musings of a chick who is BUBBLE CERTIFIED. Oh yeah, no need to adjust your screen, you read that correctly. The experts in effervescence gave me a major crash course in suds-ology. I loved it.
All joking aside, I actually learned a lot about Wisk’s HE detergent at the event. I heard the claims about HE creating fewer bubbles, and heard that too many suds can actually trap extra dirt and oils in your clothing and prevent them from getting clean — but it really clicked for the hands-on learner in me when I got to see it first hand. I actually got to see the difference in the two detergents side by side, and had proof that HE got clothes just as clean with fewer suds, right there in my hands.
It was pretty cool. I was kinda surprised at how much I learned! Of course, I also learned all about Champagne from the sommelier who was on-hand. Did you know that a good champagne should smell like toast or brioche? Did you know that the better the champagne, the longer the taste will linger in your mouth? Did you know that more pinhead-sized bubbles in your glass actually indicates a better champagne? Now you do, and so do I!
