Doing laundry is about to get more expensive
(CNN) – It could soon cost you more to wash your clothes.
Procter and Gamble, the maker of Tide and Gain laundry detergent, has announced a price hike.
The company also makes Downy fabric softener and Bounce dryer sheets.
Proctor and Gamble said Wednesday it was raising prices for retail customers by about 8% in February.
The move is intended to offset some cost pressures, according to the company.
US consumer prices rose 7% annually in December, which is the steepest climb in prices in nearly 40 years.
