“Get outside!” My mother would shout, as my five siblings and I ran around the house in a cartoon cloud of dust and chaos. There were six of us kids constantly on the go during my childhood, and my love of the outdoors originated in the afternoons we were forced outside to give our mother a moment of peace. For hours, we would run in the apple orchard behind our house, playing make-believe and eating apples right from the tree.

When we would finally come in for dinner, we would be filthy. Covered in dirt and grass stains, my mother only trusted ARM & HAMMER™ laundry detergent to clean those tough stains and still keep our clothes looking new. These two constants in childhood have carried over to my own adulthood – I still love to be outside, and I only trust my laundry to ARM & HAMMERlaundry detergent. Even today, the smell of a ripe apple or a whiff of clean laundry reminds me of those carefree days. 

With my own family to care for now, I use the same dependable detergent my mother used. The timeless and trusted formula stands up to stains but is gentle enough to keep our clothes from fading. With the introduction of the Clean Scentsations™ laundry detergent line, ARM & HAMMER™ has combined the airy, wholesome smells of nature (that remind me of being a kid) with the same stain fighting power. The three heavenly scents are inspired by the incredible outdoor aromas found right in our National Parks!

Having spent an entire summer exploring the National Parks, I am particularly drawn to these scents encouraged by the very waters and mountains I have personally laid eyes upon. The Clean Scentsations™ laundry detergent line is also meant to motivate you (yes, you!) to take your very own outdoor adventure.

My own family adventure is to take another cross country journey with our son and visit our National Parks. I am eager to pass on the same love of the outdoors to him. As a family, we want him to see the natural beauty that exists in our nation, and give him the chance to experience true wonder and awe firsthand.
