A: Yes, Tide PODS® have been thoroughly tested on all sorts of laundry conditions and are safe for both whites and colors.

Q: How is HE Turbo different from Safe-for-HE compatible detergents?
A: Using detergents that are only HE compatible produces excessive suds, which make the machine run longer due to additional rinse cycles needed to rinse out the suds. Tide designed its new HE Turbo detergents with Smart Suds™ technology, which eliminates suds so the cleaning ingredients in the detergent can act faster and rinse out quicker. Additionally, the wrong detergent can add up to 10 more gallons of water to your HE wash cycle.

Q: Can I save energy by washing in cold water with Tide HE Turbo PODS® laundry detergent?
A: Yes. In fact, if all Las Vegas households switched to washing in cold for one month, you could power the Strip for up to six days*. Just imagine the savings you could see in your household by doing the same. *Based on total electricity use in the United States and all US households switching all loads from warm to cold temperature in standard top-loading machines with electric water heaters.

Q: Is this detergent low suds?
A: Yes. It’s been formulated with Smart Suds™ technology, which allows you to use even the quick cycle without sacrificing the clean!

Great product to combat pet & sweat smells

For my new high efficiency machine, 2 Tide pods w/Febreze in a very large load did great. I need a strong detergent to combat pet & sweat smells. Compares w/the smell of strong fabric softener.

Very disappointed

The pods do not dissolve completely and get trapped and stick to the clothes. I'm very disappointed, I love the way the clothes smell! Going back to using Tide liquid.

Tide cleaning power, but very strong scent

The detergent cleans very well, just as I would expect from Tide, and it eliminates tough odors in my workout gear. However, despite this, the scent is a little too overpowering for me.
