Sweet Dreams can start in your … laundry room? (giveaway ends 3/14/14) #TuckInTurnOff


Good Night Sleep

If you follow my blog on a regular basis you might recall my post about the new fabric care line from P&G (Procter & Gamble) called the Sweet Dreams Collection. If you happened to have missed that post you can read it here – Can Getting a Good Night’s Sleep Start in the Laundry Room?

The Sweet Dreams Collection consists of a few products from popular brands. Combined they make a great regime to help you and your family fall asleep blissfully.

The Sweet Dreams Collection consists of the following products.

Current Tide Logo 2010

Tide ® plus A touch of Downy™ Sweet Dreams™: Perfect for  sheets, pajamas, and other nighttime fabrics, Tide works to clean fabrics from  things you can see, like dirt—to things you can’t see, like perspiration. This  product includes lavender overtones with gourmand vanilla undertones to create a  calming scent to help soothe you to sleep. 

Downy ® UNSTOPABLES® Dreams™: An in-wash scent booster that  allows consumers to control the amount of lavender scent added to each laundry  load. The relaxing lavender scent will last 12 weeks in storage ensuring your  bedtime fabrics can always be ready for bedtime. 


Downy Infusions® Sweet Dreams™: A premium liquid fabric  softener with SilkTouch™ to infuse fabrics with a silky softness that makes your  everyday fabrics (and you) feel fabulous. Contains a dual perfume system  with Renewing Scent Pearl Technology that imparts your bedtime fabrics  with a multi-layered lavender scent experience that continues long after your  fabrics have been washed.

Bounce ® Sweet Dreams™: Small but mighty— just toss one dryer  sheet in the dryer to soften, freshen, control static, and help repel lint and  hair on bedtime fabrics.

I received most of the products to review (except the Downy Infusions® Sweet Dreams™). Right out of the box I could smell just how amazing the lavender scented products were. The scent was coming from the box of Bounce ® Sweet Dreams™ dryer sheets.

Here is a little tip for you – place a dryer sheet in a garbage can (such as one you would keep by your desk – not in the trash can). The scent will freshen up the area around the garbage can. Mine is next to my desk so I can smell the delightful Sweet Dreams Collection scent while I am working at my desk. I know it’s intended more so for night time use, but I don’t mind. I really love the scent.

The Sweet Dreams Collection works together to infuse a lush, delightful lavender scent into your bedding (sheets, pillow cases, blankets…) as well as your pajamas. The scent surrounds you when you get ready for bed and slip under the covers.

Lavender has been used for many years in aromatherapy because it’s known to relax you. Even doctor’s recommend the use of lavender to patients with sleep issues.

I have a funny little story to share about the Sweet Dreams Collection. My daughter occasionally does the laundry. She had the opportunity to smell the Sweet Dreams Collection after I washed our bedding in it. She liked the scent so much she decided to wash ALL the laundry with it meaning my husband’s work clothes, jeans, tee shirts and even bath towels. She did it because she wanted her clothing to have the lavender scent throughout the day (not just when she went to bed at night).


Personally I don’t mind (lavender scented towels after a warm shower right before bed time are awesome! You should try it), but it didn’t go over so well with my son.

We were having dinner and my daughter told my husband that she did a few loads of laundry and that she put his clothes on top of his armoire. When she said that it dawned on me that I should have told her not to use the Sweet Dreams Collection products to do the regular laundry. When I asked her which laundry products she used she said “the new stuff” (meaning the Sweet Dreams Collection products). She asked me if that was OK and I told her for future reference we were going to save that for pajamas and bedding.

My son knows about the Sweet Dreams Collection because we had washed all the bedding in it and he was familiar with the scent (he enjoys it). He knows how it relaxes you at night before going to bed.

I can’t remember verbatim what he said but he commented on how he has a hard enough time staying awake in his morning classes and now his clothes are going to smell like his bed and all he’s going to want to do is go to sleep. LOL. 🙂 Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

The products are perfectly OK to use on your regular laundry but I would recommend saving it for it’s intended purpose (bedding and pajamas). Using it to wash bath towels is OK because a lot of people like to take a bath or shower before going to bed and soft, lavender scented towel would be perfect to use right before bedtime.

I cannot rave enough about the scent. You have to experience it for yourself in order to truly appreciate it.


We have used Tide ®, Downy ® and Bounce ® products for as long as I can remember, so we know how well they work. They work well together and leave your bedding oh-so-soft and clean. There is nothing more inviting then a bed made with soft and snuggly sheets and blankets. It’s hard to resist not hoping into bed right away. I might also add that the softness and the intoxicating scent also make it hard to get out of bed. Ha Ha.

Will I continue to use P&G’s Sweet Dreams Collection? Absolutely! Without a doubt.

Look for the Sweet Dreams Collection on a store shelf near you.
