Free Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel

Free Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather

This freebie was originally posted on October 13, 2006 and is available every two months!

I always forget about this free Nikwax Waterproofing Wax for Leather sample sachet that we can request every two months. All you have to do is take a short, five questions quiz. For help, click the “clue” button next to each question and it'll take you to the page where the answer is found. You also get to check each answer, so you can't really fail.

I won't lie – I hate quizzes. They were easily the worst part of school. The threat of a pop quiz always put a timer on my harrowing escapes from inside the gym lockers. I think it's why I get panic attacks simply from a faint whiff of Gold Bond.

This is one of the oldest freebies in continued existence. I can remember requesting Nikwax samples back before HIF was even a glint in my eyes. It was a simpler time back then, when people knew their local butcher and kids player freely throughout the neighborhood. And … wait. I really need to stop falling asleep with the TV tuned to old episodes of Leave It To Beaver.

Free Wowables Reusable Paper Towels

Sign up here for a sheet of Wowables reusable paper towels. After submitting the form, you should get a confirmation message saying to expect your freebie in 2 weeks.

I'd argue that every paper towel is reusable, no matter the brand. I reuse the same paper towel until it finally disintegrates. It's probably why my entire apartment is covered in a thick layer of dust and definitely not because I refuse to vacuum.

Free Persil ProClean Laundry Detergent

This freebie has returned for select Sampler users!

You know this free Persil ProClean laundry detergent sample is legit because the guy's wearing a bow tie. Glad to see I'm not the only person who does my laundry in formal wear.

Look for the red button that says “Claim 1 FREE Persil OXI Disc Sample” throughout the page. It will then load a Sampler.io page that will ask for 3 or 4 demographic questions, then let you know if you qualify. It seems most people are getting the freebie, even myself! After you're selected, the free detergent should arrive in four weeks.

Upon joining Generation Good, you can easily request free Seventh Generation laundry detergent! Create your free account, then go to your dashboard and take the “Welcome Activity” survey.

If you're having trouble finding it, there's a direct link in the welcome email. You'll be asked 4 or 5 questions about your laundry detergent habits, then you should be offered a free Lavender laundry detergent sample along with a few coupons.

This isn't a freebie everybody is guaranteed to qualify for. With that in mind, I pretended to be Mrs. Goobina and was offered the freebie. Just sayin' πŸ˜‰

Free Start with a Sponge Kit

Look for the orange “TAKE THE PLEDGE” button at the bottom of the page to request your free Start with a Sponge kit. You have to refer a friend, which means it's time to invite our alter freebie egos! I love Goob Junior, he's so fun.

I'm not 100% certain what comes in this kit, but I'm sure hoping a sponge is involved! Whatever it is should arrive in 7-10 business days.


Free Finish Quantum Lemon Sparkle Detergent

Free Finish Dishwashing Detergent

Free Finish Quantum Dishwashing Detergent

Dishwashing detergent was a popular freebie back in the day, especially from Finish. I have to say the first joke below might be one of my personal favorites from the archives πŸ™‚

They don't offer many freebies now, but they do have some great free coupons on their site.


IT'S TIME! Hiffers, grab your weapons (keyboards, dustbusters, and used baby diapers are all acceptable), stuff a few pillows in your shirt for armor, and mobilize. Today, we invade Finland! I'm sending orders to your regional commanders now and we set sail by midnight!

Say what now? The image above is referring to this free Finish Quantum dishwashing detergent offer and not the overthrow of a Scandinavian country? Oh… False alarm, folks. Forget all about how I had preplanned invasion guides for a friendly country with a democratically elected government.


Here's some free Finish Quantum dishwashing detergent from StartSampling. I don't live in a place with a dishwasher anymore, so I sent the sample to my childhood home. I hope the people living there now don't freak out easily because I put my name as Ghost McHaunterson.


You can request a free Finish dishwashing detergent sample even if you already have in the past since Start Sampling is hosting the offer. It's made even easier given that we know the right answers to their questions. We're basically living Groundhog Day at this point, but without all the fun stuff like electrocuting ourselves in bathtubs or kidnapping small rodents.


Free Tide Laundry Pods

Free Tide Laundry Pods

When I lived in Australia, I discovered a candy called Pods that I'd moderately describe as the single greatest object I'd every put in my mouth. Every bite was like a waking dream. But promise me you won't try to eat these free Tide pods. Eating them might quickly become a nightmare.

There are half a million samples available (THAT'S HOW YOU DO A FREEBIE, TIDE!), so don't worry if the site is currently bogged down. Also note that it's a Facebook link, however you don't actually have to like them. But since so many of you have a questionable loathing for Facebook, there's a regular form on Tide's website.

Free Trash Bag & Laundry Detergent

Once a staple in the freebie world due to their extremely low cost to ship, free trash bags haven't shown up much beyond 2016. One small tidbit is Sam's Club used to be the trash bag freebie king! No idea why, especially since Walmart and Target were the main freebie sources back then. And yet it was almost always Sam's Club partnering with Glad and other trash bag manufacturers to offer free samples.

While we wait for more to return, here are some of the classic trash bag jokes!


Here are some free Glad ForceFlex OdorShield with Febreeze trash bags for people needing somewhere to put their garbage. Good luck holding it for the next 5-7 weeks.


Interested in a free Glad Odorshield with Febreze trash bag offer. I'm just thankful it's not one of their usual ForceFlex bag offers. The previous time one of those bad boys arrived, it teased me mercilessly until I finally flexed. My friends still laugh at how minuscule my biceps are.


These free Glad ForceFlex trash bags are fantastic at not breaking while you stuff them full of all the dirty dishes your roommate left in the sink. The bags even mask the smell long enough for you to carry them into his room and scatter said dishes all over the floor!

Or I guess you could just put trash in them. Whatever floats your boat.


The selling point of this free ECOgrade photodegradable trash bag, other than being free, is supposed to be that it's biodegradable. I foresee two major problems here. First, what happens to the garbage after the bag degrades? Does it start blowing out of landfills? Call me crazy, but we need our trash to morph into flowers over time as well.

Also what if I want to throw away a pile dirt right now? Will it speed up the degrading process and cause the dirt to get all over my kitchen? No, stop asking why I have mounds of dirt in my house. You're focusing on the wrong aspect of this scenario.


Free Shout Color Catcher

Free Shout Color Catcher

Free Shout Color Catcher

As you can see, these free Shout Color Catchers had a burst of popular sampling events. They mainly ran from 2010-2012, but I'll continue being on the lookout for the next freebie opportunity.


I once tried to emulate these free Shout Color Catchers by eating a box of crayons. They didn't quite color what I was hoping for.


The old free Shout color catcher offer is back. Or maybe it never went away to begin with. I'm not the most attentive person in the world as my current outfit attests. I have no idea how this skirt got into my wardrobe or how I came to wear it.


This free Shout color catcher looks like a new form. Plus it accepted my info without saying I'd already requested a sample, so that's good enough for me to publish this. I have a pretty low bar when it comes to quality control. I'm the Creed Bratton of freebies.


Free Gain Detergent

It's been quite some time since we've found a Gain detergent freebie in the while. While we wait for they're glorious return, here are some of the earlier comments we made on their prior samples.


Brace yourself, people. I've got big, nay, huge news. Put a helmet on, sit in a padded chair, and take a few shots of whiskey before you go any further. Okay, are you ready? Alright, this free Gain laundry detergent comes with – wait for it – baking soda! BAKING SODA!

What does that mean? I don't know. Can you put this detergent in your refrigerator to keep it smelling fresh? Sure, go for it. Heck, you might even wonder what's to stop you from buying the regular version of Gain and tossing in a little baking soda on your own. The answer? I'm gonna guess evil pixies.


Freebie-Karma has a way today of telling me what I need to do…

First, it was the IKEA breakfast freebie, telling me that I need to go grab some food. Then the Magic: The Gathering freebie that seemed to be telling me to have some fun, and now this free Gain laundry detergent, which is reminding me of exactly what I have to do today: head to Sam's Club and do the laundry later too.

This is creepy. I'd better get on my daily tasks before I find some freebie that says “Goob, get busy!”


Free Downy Laundry Detergent

It's been a while since we've seen some free Downy laundry detergent. The reason I know is because I'm down to my last pair of clean underwear and t-shirt. How do people keep all their outfits clean without freebies?!

While we wait for the next Downy freebie, here are a bunch of free Downy product coupons.


When I was in college, I used to do laundry once every 8 months or so. I figured if I wore a pair of jeans 21 days in a row, then it really didn't matter if I wore them a 22nd or not. But to be honest, part of my aversion to laundry was because I had no extra money for silly things like β€œdetergent” or β€œ3 quarters for the laundry machines.” Oh, how life could have been different had I known about freebies like these free Tide & Downy simply pleasures back then!


This free Ultra Downy isn't like that other regular Downy detergent. No, this stuff is Ultra, which is way better than that other crap. How so, you ask? Well heck if I know, but I can assure you that no company would every casually toss around a word such as Ultra in their product name.


What are these free Downy Unstoppables supposed to stop? Stains? Crazy ex-girlfriends? Myself from eating an entire pan of brownies? There are so many options!
