Tide HE with a Touch of Downy did a knockout job on vomit stains and smell.

I LOVE this product and how it helped to rid soiled bed linens of vomit stains and smell in one washing.

Tide with a touch of Downy laundry detergent (Clean Breeze)

I love this laundry detergent. It really cleans my laundry great. I just love the scent of Downy and it makes my laundry smell great. The scent lasts for a long time. Fabrics stay great and feel so soft. Colors look more bright and whites look more white. I just highly recommend the Tide brand and especially the Tide with a touch of Downy. Pros: great cleaning on all kinds of fabrics, laundry feels soft after washing, long lasting scent

This Tide detergent with Downy is fantastic!

I am a huge fan of Tide laundry detergent and I love this one with a touch of Downy in the clean breeze scent. It cleans my clothes good and smells great! The easy screw on lid has markings on the inside so you know how much to use depending on how big your load is. I would definitely recommend this Tide product.

This Tide is Great!!! Five Star Performance

Your clothes are clean, soft, and smell great. As an added bonus, you don't have to remember the fabric softener. Wrinkles are a thing of the past. I will use Nothing, absolutely Nothing else....

Smells horrible

I always buy Tide w/downey and loved the slight scent. I just bought this new formula and the smell is very strong. I don't like my clothes to smell like my laundry detergent. Looks like I will have to buy a new brand. Too overbearing!!!!

Why the new scent???!

The new scent on the Tide with a Touch of Downy April Fresh is horrible. Why would you change it from the original? I have used Tide for the past 15 years and have always loved it. I loved it even more when you added the Downy to it. I will not be purchasing this product again. Ever. I cannot stand the candy-like sweet smell. Really disappointed.

Very Unpleasant Scent

We got the new Tide with Downey when we purchased our new washing machine. We were told we had to use the "he" type of detergent so we bought it where we bought the washer. After I washed our clothes, sheets, tablecloths and towels with the new detergent my husband began complaining saying the smell is unbearable. We recently purchased two new recliners (April 2014) and the smell from the detergent got into the fibers from our clothing and made them smell obnoxious as well. The are currently sitting outside airing out...but my husband still smells the Tide smell. This has been a huge headache for me. Even though I've found a new detergent that has no fragrance there are still a lot of things that we've washed with the Tide in our house. I bought the new washer to save water...I'm not saving water when I have to rewash everything. Some things need two washings to remove the smell. My husband wants to send the chairs back because he can't stand the smell. I hope with all my heart that leaving them in the back yard for a few days helps. I'm really upset about this. I have used Tide all my life and it really feels bad to have this big of a problem with it.

I Love This Detergent!

I have been a loyal Tide user for many years, as this is the detergent that my everyone in my family has used for decades. I recently tried the Tide Plus a Touch of Downy and loved it! I normally use regular Tide and Downy separately. This product is very convenient because it has both products combined in one. This product cleans my clothes the same as the other Tide products, but it also has Downy included in the formula so that my clothes come out soft, also. I purchased the HE formula for my front-load washer and have had no problems with over-sudsing. My clothes are coming out clean and soft and they smell very "April Fresh", which I very much enjoy. I especially love using this product to wash bedding and towels, because of the extra softness and freshness it provides them with. I love that this product is offered in the large 138 fl. oz. container, which lasts for a long time. This will definitely be a product I will continue to use! :)

Love this product!!!

I had been purchasing the regular laundry detergent and the fabric softener; but now they make this a 2 in 1 deal so i do not have 2 containers laying around and i don't have to mess with the fabric softener ball! The scent is wonderful, and it lasts a long time; my clothing that has been hung up in my closet for a while still smells fresh and that is what i love!!!
