As a mom I know all about the need to stretch money out. When I heard about Woolite pairing up with Crowdtap to share samples and introduce the public to its newest product Woolite Extra Dark Care, I had to take part. An added benefit–the samples came with a $1 off coupon.
My care package arrived and I tore into it. I received a jean tote bag, several individually wrapped sample/coupon packages, white boards, dry erase markers and a deck of questions about jeans. In preparation for the party I made a Woolite banner out of index cards and paper clips, added jeans to some of the water bottles and made a zebra style cake for the adults to eat while our kids played at the park.
We chatted and then began playing the trivia game which really got the conversations flowing about laundry, detergent and purchasing habits. There was also talk about washing machines, but that’s a whole other topic. We learned that by using Woolite Extra Dark Care laundry detergent we can extend the life of our denim. Curious about the game questions? Here are a few samples:
If you’re really serious about jean care, how long do denim experts recommend you go before washing your jeans for the first time?
a. After one week
b. After a month
c. After 6 weeks
d. After 6 months
Answer: d (I know right. I had no clue)
Which of the following qualities make Woolite the best choice for taking care of your denim?
a. It’s a liquid detergent so it’s less abrasive than powders
b. It contains less abrasive chemicals than most other detergents
c. It is made with pure lacier water
d. Both A and B
The word “denim” refers to the fabric that jeans are made from as well as the French city where denim fabric was first made. What is the name of the city?
b. Le Mans
Answer: c (Never heard of it either. Good thing I was the one asking the questions while my guests played for an extra sample. lol)
We ate and drank a ton of water because it was pretty hot outside. Kind of funny because it was almost torturous and the Woolite campaign is all about not torturing your jeans and extending their life by using a better detergent. Unfortunately not all my guests could make it, but a few stopped by the house both before and after the party to scoop up their samples. They wanted to take part, but couldn’t as fully as they wanted. I was glad to share the samples and hope they like it as much as I do.
Now they, as well as the people who received samples, have a chance to share their experience for a chance to win $500 by visiting http://www.samplingeffectiveness.com/jeans. If they don’t use their sample until October, they can still enter as entries are accepted until Oct. 31, 2012. (No purchase necessary to participate in the sweepstake.)
