Cool Off This Summer With Tide Coldwater {PARTY REVEAL}

Cool off this summer with Tide Coldwater Laundry Detergent!  It’s as easy as 1-2-3, and the environment and your pocketbook will thank you.  Spreading the word about how beneficial it is to wash our clothing in cold water has never been so fun either!

I had the immense pleasure of talking about how to “Cool off with Tide” with my friends and Los Angeles based bloggers at a swanky Tide luncheon I HOSTED this week.  The location was gorgeous, the food was delicious, the entertainment just perfect, the attention to detail fabulous {if I do say so myself-hello Gelatin Bubble Tutorial} and the information eye opening!

Tide Coldwater Party

Tide Coldwater party

The party consisted of a luncheon for the ladies sans children.  We had the pleasure of enjoying wonderful food, relaxing in the sun with bubbles blowing around us and live music playing for us while chatting about ways with a very small change {washing our clothes in cold water} we can make a big difference!


The food consisted of an assortment of hors d’oeuvres and fresh salads (green, fruit and pasta), appropriate for a summer fete!  I think it was the perfect “starter” for the focal point for the party, which of course was the cupcakes topped with gelatin bubbles {I mean the Tide Coldwater Detergent}.


I’ve literally never been so impressed with a dessert table in my life.  The bubbles topping the cupcakes were made with a technique that’s sort of labor intensive but well worth the effort, don’t you think?  {tutorial coming up!}  The actual cupcakes were made by a real pastry chef so you can imagine how divine they were.  The perfect sweet compliment to the already sweet lunch {everyone also got to go home with a Tide water bottle  and a bottle of Tide Coldwater laundry detergent}!

The thing about live entertainment is that you usually have to be there to absorb the whole package.  I was able to capture one song on video though, and I think that you can get an idea of how amazing our show was!


A party of course is not a party without the presence of fun guests and my Tide Coldwater party included a fabulous mix of real life friends {who happen to have lots of kids needing lots of laundry washed on a daily basis} and bloggers from the Los Angeles area.  The merging of the groups was so much fun!

Cool Off with Tide

Did you know?

That if everyone in the United States washed their laundry in cold water, the energy saved in one year would equal the energy produced at the Hoover Dam for 4 years, which is enough to power the street lights of L.A. for 4 years, and could reduce CO2 emissions by up to 11 million metric tons every year.  If a household switching to cold water washing for a year  would save enough energy to watch TV for 1,363 hours, or play XBOX 360 for for 364 hours, or charge an iPhone 4s 30,861 times, or power an average new refrigerator for nearly 4 months.  And your clothes would still be just as clean as ever.  Tide Coldwater is a specially formulated detergent that provides a deep clean in cold temperatures.  It is a smart, practical choice for consumers looking to cut  household costs.  Wash in cold with Tide Coldwater and save up to 50% of energy per wash cycle.

    Those stats are amazing and when you put it that way, yes it’s hard to understand why we don’t all wash in cold. I will admit I’m skeptical of washing say, sheets and towels or white clothes needing bleach in cold water. I haven’t tried it, mind you, to see if there’s a difference at all, but I do know I should, to at least find out rather than wonder (or worse, simply assume it’s impossible to get these things as clean. We’re raised believing hot water on whites, sheets, towels, etc. because hot kills germs, cleans better. But if this is specially formulated to do the same in a different temperature…).

    The party looks fantastic!

    This party is AMAZING!!!! And…I love that we can get the deep clean with cold water – I will definitely make the switch. I’m all for energy savings both monetarily and otherwise.

      I keep coming back to look at them. They are indeed squal-inducing, huh?

    The detergent works wonders.

    Proud Tide Coldwater user here for 7 years and counting!!! I remember buying our first house and we were expecting our 1st baby. We were trying to figure out ways where we could save money. Sure, Tide cost a bit more than other brands, but always left clothes looking new – wash after wash and not faded like the others. We figured that even w/buying the more expensive detergent, we would save $ on utility bills AND buying new clothes (though, ahem, that part about buying clothes may or may not hold true for some family members…ahem).

    Anyway, those stats are mind blowing when put in that context! That party looked absolutely amazing! I wish I lived in the LA area so I could have attended (or begged for an invite)!

    Good job, Angie! You look like you’re the Hostess w/the Mostest, for sure 😉

    There isn’t a better smell than a fresh washed basket of clothes. Thanks Tide for the information on what one family could do. I love the detergent and have made the switch to cold! Thanks Angie for such an amazing party. Can’t wait for the tutorial on the bubbles.

    What a Fabulous party Angie! I LOVED every detail! The hostess makes the party and you certainly rocked it. I have used Tide Free for years and I have thought about making the switch to Cold Water. I think you very well have convinced me. That was easy! 🙂
