Publix always has the best items, and right now there is a promotion going on with some of my absolute favorite home and health items; items that have been around my family for as long as I can remember. Items that my husband’s family has used for as long as he can remember, and now we are continuing that life-long tradition of using them in our own home.
I am going to highlight some of these products for you along with telling a bit of a backstory on how they have played a role in our family- both today and in the past. I feel like when you know that products have been used for decades, it makes it so much easier to trust them. You know that they are products worth having in your own home to use for yourself or your own children. The trust is built with the brand!
Colgate® Optic White
I have been using this brand of toothpaste for as long as I can remember. Those days of getting ready as quickly as possible to get to high school to enjoy those few minutes in the morning that you get to talk to friends before the first bell. Those are the moments I remember when I look at a box of Colgate Optic White. Two of my favorites would have to be Colgate Optic White Stain Fighter Toothpaste and the Colgate Optic White Advanced Toothpaste. We use this brand throughout our home, not only for ourselves but also for our oldest child.
Colgate Optic White Stain Fighter is my family’s personal favorite in the Colgate Optic White line. It removes 6X more surface stains with micro-polishing action (vs. ordinary non-whitening toothpaste, after 2 weeks of continued use). It also prevents new stains from forming, so your teeth stay whiter longer! It also contains clinically proven technology to safely remove those surface stains.
The Optic White Advance is just as amazing with its whitening formula that deeply whitens teeth inside and out, unlike ordinary toothpaste. It goes beyond the surface stains with Colgate’s patented 2% HP formula (when brushing twice daily for 4 weeks, also contains Hydrogen Peroxide, this is Dentist recommended for teeth whitening). Deeply whiten your teeth up to 4 shades by using this toothpaste! It’s definitely a close second in our book!
Now there is nothing like amazing smelling laundry, am I right? Suavitel gives you just that, and their Morning Burst scent is by far my FAVORITE to use on our clothes. With potty training toddlers, there are plenty of stinky laundry loads. The Suavitel brand helps keep our clothes smelling fresh for 45 days, and soft and cozy too! No one wants to put on clothes that have lost their amazing scent and are all scratchy from sitting in their dresser drawer.
Staying clean is of course a must and we also need to make sure that when doing so, we are hydrating our bodies. Nothing compares to the oldie but goodie that is Irish Spring! Their bar soap is by far the most moisturizing body and face wash that my husband says he has ever used. After a long day at work, he definitely leaves the shower feeling refreshed and clean after using the Irish Spring soap. Did you know that Irish Spring helps you stay fresh for 24 hours and washes away that yucky bacteria that you may have picked up on your body at work?
Dishes are definitely another dreaded chore (like laundry) but hear me out! Palmolive has been around for a long time and gets the job done! It has 0% parabens and phosphates plus its new and improved formula keeps it tough on grease and gentle on the planet. Did you know that the Palmolive bottles are recyclable and made from 100% recycled plastic? Keep the Earth green while washing one dish at a time!
These products are just a few of the ones that have been in our families for generations and ones that we trust to use. I know we will be making some delicious tortillas and using our Palmolive soap to wash all of the dishes before we sit down to enjoy them during Hispanic Heritage Month! I personally just love knowing that our family is using products we know and trust in our home all while grabbing them from our favorite grocery store, Publix!

Not only is Publix celebrating Hispanic Heritage this month with the products that they have on sale, but also with some amazing recipes that they have listed on their website! From Arepas with Carnitas and Sweet Potato to Pozole, they have it all!
My husband loves Pozole and says that the recipe sounds exactly like what his grandmother used to cook him as a little boy, back when he lived in California. For me personally, the Arroz con Gandules listed on the website reminds me of my childhood – and of my mother cooking it up with some Pernil in the kitchen. Or the weekends that we would spend at my aunt’s house where we would enjoy those two dishes along with some amazing Yuca and yummy Tostones. There is something for everyone to enjoy this month during the Hispanic Heritage Celebration at Publix!
