Memories are so easily triggered now that I’m older. Maybe it’s because I have more of them, or maybe it’s because they’ve become more dear to me. A random sight, sound, or smell can take me back to years ago and within seconds, I’m reliving a specific time, place, or event.
The smell of wood smoke during winter reminds me of camping trips and time spent around the fire. Of long lazy days on the lake, sunburns, mosquitoes, and dark nights broken up by the countless campfires. It’s amazing how the mind works. How it stores little bits of data from our life to replay them at a later date.
Arm & Hammer has created three new laundry detergent scents that are meant to evoke the memories of some of our nations most beloved national parks. To honor and support them, they’ve released Arm & Hammer™ Clean Scentsations™ Laundry Detergent in three National Park inspired formulas.
Arm & Hammer™ Clean Scentsations™ Laundry Detergent – Scents
They’ve created a Glacier Bay National Park (Alaska) scent which is said to capture the “pristine waters” of the area. I’ve been to Glacier Bay and it truly is one of the most spectacular places on earth. I’m looking forward to seeing if they truly were able to capture its magic in a bottle.
The second scent pays homage to Yosemite National Park (California) with a sun-kissed floral scent. The third celebrates the “twilight sky” of Acadia Main with the “calm scent of dusk on the shores of Maine.”
While I normally choose scent-free products for myself, I’m happy to share these with my readers who do use scented products because Arm & Hammer contributes to the National Park Foundation to help preserve America’s National parks, and that’s something I can heartily support!
Arm & Hammer™ Clean Scentsations™ Laundry Detergent – Baking Soda Powered
While the scents are new, what isn’t is the tried and true Arm & Hammer Baking Soda that takes care of tough stains. I love Arm & Hammer detergent because it’s priced well, works beautifully, and is readily available across the nation. Plus, they’re so sure you’ll love the new scents that they have a “Love it or your Money Back” guarantee.
