i like this product works really well

i love this product for getting those hard to get stains out. You just add your detergent and add the clothes and then add one of the stain release

Tide Stain Release Duo Packs

Not great as a stain release formula - just an average laundry booster.

They work, but hold your nose!

I am not exaggerating when I say these smell like the inside of a portapotty! They are effective at getting out the tough stains, but I do not use these every load because of the smell and possible chemicals that I don't feel safe using on my son's clothing each load. Most times, I do the old fashioned spray and scrub on the stains and that works just fine.

Surpasses My Expectations!

Having grown up in a "Tide only" household, I've been trying various other brands of detergent in my own adulthood, but still keep coming back to Tide. We bought our first front-loader a few months ago and were impressed with the HE products Tide provides, especially the WASHER CLEANER (thank you Tide!). One problem we continued to have though was the towels we use for our dogs. They sleep on them, play with them, get dried off from a bath with them and...well you can imagine what else happens on them every now and again. Even with the great Tide detergent and the new front-loader, we could not seem to get the "dog smell" out of the towels. Since only the dogs use the towels, it shouldn't be a big deal but with that smell, they just didn't seem as clean as they should be. I had seen a few ads for the new TIDE STAIN RELEASE and didn't really give it much though with regard to our "smell" issue. But then I walked into Target the other day and saw a big display of your new product. I read the packaging and thought, "well why not, let's see if it will work". Admittedly, I was more than skeptical but also had run out of other ideas. I came home and ran a load, putting the powder STAIN RELEASE in the "pre-wash" compartment and running a pre-wash cycle (not sure if that was the proper way or not) wih the regular wash cycle. Transferred the clean towels to the dryer and crossed my fingers. When the load was dry, I was surprised, shocked, amazed at how clean and FRESH the towels smelled! It was a miracle right there in my own laundry room! Keep in mind the towels were not stained but were smelly, and TIDE STAIN RELEASE really did the job to erase the smell! Thank you TIDE! There is only one thing that I had a problem with and that was the packaging. More specifically, the label and pull cap. Having purchased the powder version of the product, I got home and pulled the top part off to open the package and get to work. Imagine my horror when I realized that the instructions were on the part you tear off (who thought of that??? - bad idea!). I logged into tide.com and couldn't find any usage instructions there either so ended up having to go back out to my garbage and dig through to find the part of the label I had torn off with the instructions on it. Additionally, opening the internal cap to dispense the product was rather difficult. I had trouble with it at 44, so I can imagine someone older being completely unable to open the cap. The small "pull tab" is TOO small and there is nothing to grab onto to pull it. There is a small loop which I guess is supposed to be used to open it but it isn't a big enough opening to put your finger in and get a good grip on it to tear it out. So although you have created another great product, I would suggest you make a few adjustments to the packaging. Overall, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT! Great job Tide!

Would Not Reccomend!

I bought this product the first day it was placed on the shelf at my local grocery store. Placed a load of stained clothes together in he washer with the Tide Stain Release and there were hardly any differences before and after the wash. Will not purchase again!
