Did the trick, smell not as bad as others say

It loosed caked on gunk, a quick rinse cycle did the rest. There was a smell, in btwn fresh and chemical smell, but not unpleasant. After a rinse and leaving the top open overnight it wasn't as strong

Strong smell

After reading the reviews I thought I'd give peace of my mind. I live on well water with softener. The water that sits in the tub that doesn't drain fully starts to smell moldy/musty. Husband notice it more than I. So i use this every 6 months and it works well in my top loading washer. I do believe It has a strong smell, but also it takes away the musty smell in the clothes. I just wish it didn't cost so much.

Tide Response From Tide 04/27/2017

We would hope that our Tide Washing Machine Cleaner would leave your machine clean and refreshed, and are sorry that the scent frustrates you. Our Washing Machine Cleaner was designed to take on the tough job of freshening the washing machine drum. This process can create a fragrance which might get intense in smaller spaces. Depending on the size and ventilation efficiency of your laundry room, the fragrance could last 30 minutes to several house. Opening a window or using a can can help diminish the fragrance faster. If you’d like to share more about your experience, please give us a call at 800-879-8433.
