My laundry comes out clean and fresh smelling. The scent can be a bit strong but due to that I don’t use fabric softener and that does the trick. I use this in a HE front loading washer and I’ve never had any issues. I always struggled with my workout clothes coming out still feeling unwashed but I can not only smell the difference I can actually feel it in my fabric that my clothes are clean. This one is hard to top for me.
These Tide pods have more concentrate in them so you could use one pod for a large laundry. I normally use one or two pods depending on the size and type of clothing involved. With this product, a single pod would do as it has a higher concentrate and gives a good cleaning. There is also added scent – Spring meadow, so I don’t bother to throw in scent boosters. Tide pods might be a little pricy but they work very well and there is no residue even with cold water washes. The child proof lid is a little hard to open as you have to squeeze both ends with your fingers at the correct spot to open it. Anyone with arthritis or weak hands might have a struggle to open them as you have to reach wide with your thumb and index finger to squeeze the tabs . These Tide pods offer excellent cleaning performance with extra scent for maximum loads.
At first I thought this was kind of pricey given the number of loads listed on the package, but if you look more closely and have some experience with laundry pods in general you'll notice that most pods actually instruct you to use two or even three pods per load depending on the size of the load. For us, and I'm sure for most folks, when we do the laundry the machine is full and a full machine is what we consider a "load". These pods are a bit different from most pods, they actually say for a "large" load you only need one instead of two or three for standard pods. For us this actually translates to these pods going further than other pods even though they contain more pods per case.
They did an excellent job on one of our packed loads of kids clothes, using only a single pod. The pod dissolved completely, not leaving any undissolved pod "skin" anywhere in the machine or the laundry (which has been an issue sometimes for us when doing laundry using cold or only warm water). Clothes definitely come out smelling nice and fresh, with a good neutral smelling scent that isn't overbearing but is still noticeable.
We have used Tide Original HE Laundry Detergent for years and we have also used those Bounce sheets in dryer. But we were totally sold for the convenience and performance of Tide pods few years ago and since then, we have been buying tide Pods. There is no need to lift and carry those heavy liquid laundry detergent containers and no need for measuring cups. Just toss a pod pac into the washer to clean, brighten, fight stains and help eliminate odours.
If you have used previous versions of Tide pods, you know that you One pac for regular load, two pacs for large loads and three pacs for extra large loads. But, these pods are different and they are designed for large loads. Which means one pac is equivalent to two pacs from previous versions. This is because each pod has double the cleaning power compared to previous pods.
Also I must say that it works exceedingly well in cleaning the clothes and scent is great. It provides consistently good cleaning results every wash including large bedding.
It and be used in both HE and No-HE machines. It can be used in both Hot and Cold Waters. It can be used in both front and Top loading machines. Isn't that convenient?
Now one important thing for people new to this product is these pods looks really attractive and they are harmful if swollen. Small Kids may find them like very attractive candy. Good news is Tide Pod comes with special lid that will not simple to open. But, still I would keep them out of reach of small children.
My husband lost his job due to COVID-19, so he is "trying" to help out more around the house. Thanks to these Tide pods, I feel very comfortable with him doing laundry. These pods are dummy proof! They're designed for large loads, the only size we do in our house, so it takes the guess work out. With regular pods, I worried that he would throw only one in when in fact he needed 2 or 3 for the load size. No more! These pods are designed for large loads, so you only ever have to use one. Dont even get me started on the idea of trusting my husband to measure out liquid detergent... these large load Tide pods could not have come at a better time! Hubby washes clothes on all temperatures, as he is learning. Even in cold water, these Tide pods seem to dissolve completely, leaving no residue or pod skin behind. The stain fighting power is truly incredible, these pods have even removed mustard from tshirt and jeans with no soak or pre-treat (hubby does neither). So I dont have to worry about stains, these pods have us covered. The smell is quite strong, but clean. Even if hubby forgets the in-wash scent boosters (always) and the dryer sheet (always), my clothes smell fresh and clean. At approximately 50 cents per load/pod, these are worth every penny in my opinion. After having my husband do our household laundry for the previous two weeks, I can verify that these pods do a phenomenal job and take the guess work out of laundry. They're dummy proof!
