Tide Response From Tide 07/22/2016

Our Washing Machine Cleaner was designed to take on the tough job of freshening your washing machine drum and may create a fragrance in smaller spaces. This smell should dissipate within thirty minutes at most! Either way, our cleaner has passed extensive testing to ensure it's safe for use. We'd like to speak with you further to see what we can do to help. Please give us a call at 1-(800)-879-8433 anytime between Monday and Friday, 9am-5pm EST as we'd love to learn more about your experience.

Horrific, Overpowered Fragrance

This product may have cleaned my machine, but the overpowering fragrance is offensive. After several rinses and a small load, my washer still stinks. The other two packets are already in the trash.

Grossly over scented

Scent is unpleasant, overpowering, and lingers too long. Clean doesn't have to smell. I shouldn't have to open a window to air it out.

Tide Response From Tide 05/05/2016

The process while using Tide's Washing Machine Cleaner can create a fragrance which might get intense in smaller spaces, Brian, and we're sorry you dislike this strong scent. The good news is, the fragrance should be gone after 30 minutes to a few hours based on the size and ventilation efficiency of your laundry room. If you have any questions or comments, please give us a call at 1-800-879-8433, 9:00AM - 6:00PM EST, Monday - Friday
