Laundry soap and light bulbs?

Laundry soap and light bulbs? Empty Laundry soap and light bulbs?

Do you know a brand of unscented laundry detergent and where to buy it? The only one I've found is 7th Generation at Super Lake and it is very expensive and in a small bottle. Some of the brands at Walmart I can't tell whether they're unscented or not, but I haven't seen any that say "sin perfume."

Also I am looking for brands of decent light bulbs. Some of the ones in my rental unit only last a week! I don't care what type, but not the super intense blue-white bulbs. I want a more natural light. Thanks.

Look for "Luz Calida" that's the warm light.

Costco Kirkland brand laundry detergent has an unscented version. Check the label

Thanks all. I'll look for the Kirkland at SL. For light bulbs I was looking for reliable brands that don't burn out real fast. I know there are some but not the brands.

Conventional incandescent light bulbs are getting hard to find. Years ago Walmart carried all the major brands of incandescent bulbs. Now they just have LEDs and fluorescents. Same with Home Depot. Even the place beside Sunrise has a very limited selection.

The abarrotes have them, they are Mexican and don't last too long.

I converted entirely to LED. The up front cost is high but the energy savings and extremely long life make it worthwhile IMO.

Walmart still carries some incandescent bulbs, like the candle style bulbs that are General Electric.  Also their selection of low energy bulbs with their store brand "Great Value" have worked well for me (which are probably made by GE). Phillips seems to be a good brand also.
What are "Mexican bulbs"?....they are all probably made in China.   lol!

I haven't replaced a bulb at my house in 6 years. The curly kind.

Those are fluorescents. They usually last a long time too.

I saw a big jug of unscented laundry soap at Walmart. I think it was All. It was 325p and the other brands were <200.
