Review of Tide Pods Free & Gentle

I am in love with this product. No more mess of liquid, resealable pouch, no measuring, easy to travel with. This particular product has no scent, so we do use fabric softener liquid and sheets. It does a great job at cleaning. It does just as well as it's liquid counterpart.

Great detergent for my paba allergies!

This is my go-to detergent for my paba skin allergies; the product does not irritate my skin, make me sneeze, and is easy to use in-wash.

Plastic wrapper ruined clothes

Several times plastic wrapper didn't melt during the wash cycle and clothes had clumps in them due to dried plastic that stuck on the fabric. I don't recommend this product at all.

Was disappointed!!!

: I brought tide pods because I heard how awesome it is! Well, to my surprise it didn't work at removing grape juice stain after two washes however, it did lighten it up a little bit. :(
