Decline in quality

Recently I purchased Tide pods and have ruined many clothes due to the pods not dissolving thus leaving a hard plastic residue on clothing.

Tide Response From Tide 12/08/2016

Our PODS™ should be dissolving completely in your wash as long as they’re added to the drum before any laundry, and there’s enough space for them to move around in the free water. We can only imagine your recent frustrations with our detergent, and we’d like to help. When you have a chance, please give us a call at 800-879-8433.

Product ruins machines and clothes

Tide pods first time user here. What a horrible product this Tide Pod is. The Tide Pods don't dissolve and stick half-melted to clothes and filter section. How on earth did this get through QA?

Not worth the money

Lots of times the pods do not dissolve (even HOT water) leaves a sticky slimy film and through the dryer it actually sticks the fabric like glue. I'm not happy with this product at all.

Tide Response From Tide 12/05/2016

When used as directed this certainly isn't the experience you should be having. Soaking the items in the hottest water safe for the fabrics will remove that residue. We'd like to learn more about what happened so when you have some free time, please give us a call at: 1-800-879-8433.
