Returning to Tide Powder

Occasionally Tide Pods failed to completely dissolve, leaving a gooey mess. If not discovered before machine drying, the mess hardens and is difficult to remove without damaging clothes.

Tide Response From Tide 11/08/2017

We always want our PODS™ to be convenient and efficient, Blue, and we’re sorry that was your experience. All of our detergents are water soluble, and any residue can be removed by soaking the garments in the hottest water safe for the fabric, for at least an hour, and then rewashing without detergent. We’d like to help you further, please call us at (800) 879-8433.

NEW CUSTOMER

I have always used GAIN products. I recently clipped coupons from my Sunday paper and thought I would try TIDE. I am glad I did. Smells great. Clothes were nice and soft. I think I am switching to TIDE products from now on. I would like to know how to get more coupons. This product ROCKS!!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

failed to completely dissolve

Unfortunately the PODS did not dissolve over two consecutive washes leaving the film coating and large spot of cleaner on my shirt and then on my sweater. I had to scrub them by hand then rewash.
