Sticky stuff on clothes

This keeps leaving residue from the pods on my shirts. Used directly in drum as the instructions say, in our LG front loader with cold (not tap) water. Our city water is great quality too

Long Time Tide Pod User

I love the convenience of them, always using one before clothes are added, but now they don't dissolve and leave a gummy residue on my clothes. Never had an issue before my restock.

Disappointed

I have always used tide recently I decided to give the pods a try. It leaves a sticky/lint residue on my clothes. It is awful and has ruined some of my clothes. I will not use this again.
