School is almost finished here in western New York which means much time will be spent in the great outdoors. As a self-proclaimed clean freak, I currently do everything while my children are in school. But when school is out, I try to stay as busy as I can with my children as they need exploration and fun during the summer before a new school year arrives, not watching their mom clean all day.
But there is one chore that will never be able to wait; laundry. My least favorite chore ever. Not doing it because I have a great set of Whirlpool Duets but folding and putting it away. One day there will be a magical button that does it all for me (wishful thinking never hurt anyone!)
With a husband that works on diesel engines, two kids that spill food, drinks and play in the mud and dirt and me cuddling my puppy and cats, cooking and attempting to bake, I need to ensure our laundry is always fresh and with Bounce Bursts, new in-wash scent booster, I will never doubt the scent of our laundry again.
Bounce Bursts are simple to use. Just twist off the cap, pour a little or a lot in the cap and throw in the washing machine.
Wash as usual! The fresh outdoor scent brings the outdoors indoors, so even when you and your family can’t get outside, you’ll smell that outdoor freshness you love. The little beads are magical.
I’m telling you, my laundry has never smelled so good. So fresh and lasts forever. Ever had a sniff of something that smelled so good and your nose twitches? Yeah that, wait until you go to fold your laundry, or curl up in bed or pull an item of clothing off the hanger or out of the drawer to wear. You’ll sniff…a lot and won’t want to stop. I’ll forever use Bounce Bursts in-scent wash booster.
Since kids are out of school most areas of the US and parents still need to do their everyday duties of work, there are times we can’t get outdoors. Even if you are not able to, celebrity interior designer Thom Filicia knows the value the outdoors is and bringing it inside. To help bring the freshness of the outdoors inside Thom has some tips to follow.
Tips to Bring the Outdoors, Indoors
Don’t be afraid of bright colors
By painting your walls with a bright color, the essence and vibrancy of the outdoors can be translated inside. For those who aren’t risk takers, focusing on one accent wall or introducing bright colors through the use of throw pillows or blankets as an easy (and maybe less daunting) way to bring the outdoors indoors.
Transform your fabrics
By washing your clothes with Bounce Bursts, you will take the Outdoor Fresh scent with you everywhere you go. You can also add the beads to a dish or vase to transform the scent of your entire laundry room.
Add fresh flowers to your space
By placing fresh cut flowers in your favorite vase on your desk or indoor tables, you can enjoy the scent AND beauty of the outdoors while indoors. And… don’t stress… the flowers don’t need to coordinate with the color of your sofa or office furniture!
Switch up your patterns and layer your materials
Don’t be afraid to be playful with your fabrics, adding in floral-inspired patterns and colors, along with a mix of materials, from wood to metal or stone, will help you evoke the feeling of being outside while lounging and even working indoors. You can also wash linens and other washable fabrics with Bounce Bursts for an added boost of Outdoor Fresh scent.
Blur the lines
There’s really no difference in how you decorate from indoors to outdoors, so don’t be afraid to blur the lines. There are easy,functional and beautiful ways to use outdoor items, such asindoor/outdoor rugs in a kitchen or laundry room, outdoor fabrics in a children’s playroom, or all-weather baskets next to a fireplace or ina living room to hold extra blankets.
Invest in outdoor-inspired artwork
There’s nothing better than looking up at a formerly blank wall to see a piece of artwork that evokes the spirit of the great outdoors. A favorite picture from an outdoor adventure, an abstract painting that reminds you of a meadow or a blurred image of a sunset – introducing outdoor-inspired artwork can help to boost your mood and elevate the look and feel of your indoor space.
Pair Bounce Bursts with outdoor fresh Bounce dryer sheets and you have even more freshness to smile about.
Bounce Bursts are available nationwide in Bounce’s signature Outdoor Fresh scent for a suggested retail price of $6.99. I would love to see the Bounce Bursts in the Febreze varieties on shelves soon!
