We understand your frustration. Our PODS™ should always dissolve fully, leaving your clothes looking great. Because the casing and detergent is water-soluble, soaking those affected items overnight, then rewashing in the hottest water safe for the fabric should restore them. For best results the first time around, always be sure to add your PODS™ to the drum of your machine before adding the laundry. We'd be more than happy help you even further, so please call us at (800) 879-8433 when you can.

While we're sorry to hear you've had some difficulties with your PODS™, we're here to help! On a small number of machines, the size of the gap between the washing machine door and the rubber seal means that the PODS™ can become trapped. The outside casing (film) of the empty PODS™ can become stuck to the door/seal of the washing machine. Luckily, this can be prevented by making sure to not overload your washer and adding the PODS™ to the drum of your machine before you add your clothes. If you do find residue, you can remove it easily with a soft damp cloth using mild soap and water. We'd be happy to answer any questions that you may have, so always feel free to give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Excellent product

The Tide 3 in 1 pods are the only laundry detergent I have found that gets the smell and black greasy stains out of work clothes. 2 pods in a medium-large size load of 3 pair of jeans does the job. Doesn't fade colors.

I tried it and I couldn't stand it. It might take the stain out but sure not the smell. I used it once and never again. There is an after small kind of like a sweat smell. Do no go.

This definitely isn't the fresh experience we expect from our Free & Gentle PODS™! They have no added fragrance, and we can assure you that our detergents won't cause bad smells. If your freshly-washed laundry comes out smelling badly, it may be due to odor causing residues in your washing machine. To freshen up your machine, we suggest giving our Tide Washing Machine cleaner a try. We'd love for you to give us another chance with this tip in mind! We'd love to help you even further, just give us a call at (800) 879-8433 when you can.
