FAQ

Q: Is it OK to use laundry detergent in cold water?
A: You can use our detergents with cold water, but warm or hot water provides the best cleaning results. If you wash with cold water, we suggest you use Tide Coldwater. Tide Coldwater can clean effectively in water as cold as 40°F (4°C). If the water in your washing machine is colder than this, add a bit of warm water to bring the temperature to that level. If you use another detergent, the water should be at least 60°F (16°C). If the water in your washing machine is colder than this, add a bit of warm water. We recommend you only use a cold wash for items that specify this on the care label.

Q: Is this product good for whites as well as colors?
A: Yes, Tide Coldwater Clean can be used with both whites and colors; however, as with traditional laundry, sorting by color is highly recommended prior to cleaning, as some garments may bleed even in cold water conditions.

Q: Can I use this product on my delicates?
A: Yes, Tide Coldwater Clean can be used on any garments that are considered machine washable. Some garments can be more susceptible to color loss and bleeding, and as with all detergents, it is recommended that a small hidden area of the garment be tested for colorfastness if there is concern.

Q: What happens if I use warm water by mistake?
A: Tide Coldwater Clean can also be used in warm and hot water washes.

Q: Do I need to dilute Tide Coldwater Clean before I use it?
A: No, you do not need to dilute Tide Coldwater Clean prior to use. Simply follow the usage instructions on the packaging, and fill the cap of Tide Coldwater Clean to the appropriate line and pour it.

Coldwater Tide is Truly Amazing!

For over a decade, and long before there were HE washers, I thought there was only one true detergent, and that was Tide with Bleach. I may have tried others brands, but always returned to Tide with Bleach. Until it was discontinued. Then, I was lost. I turned to Arm and Hammer as a runner up. Then, I bought a new washer and dryer, probably because, I renovated my family room and the laundry room. And the new HE washers were so beautiful, I had to have them in my life. Well, the beautiful and fancy washer with all the washing options.... 3 months later, the novelty of the beauty and the sophisticated options wore off. Is it my imagination, or are my husbands white tee shirts looking dingy/grayish? Is it the new lighting in the laundry room or are my eyes aging? Well, maybe, that slight odor, I’m picking up is part of my imagination too. Well, the lighting in my bedroom has not changed, and the once white tee shirts are still dingy and gray. But, when my husband said are these clean? That was confirmation, that I had a problem. So, not wanting to believe, there was a problem with my fancy HE washer, I decided to compare the just washed white tee shirts, to some old ones in the bottom of the drawer, that haven’t been in rotation for awhile. Yep, I was right, this is gray! So, I went on a hunt to find the best detergent for my fancy HE washer, that I can’t tell my husband, is a piece of junk after spending a fortune on it. I fell in love with Perasil. The tee shirts are looking whiter, and smelling fresher, but still slightly gray. My hunt continues, as Tide has been my friend for over a decade, and I know Tide with Bleach is obsolete and I tried the Bleach alternative, but it did not impress me. And, now for some reason, the hot water in my Fancy HE washer is not working for some reason. I’m getting error codes, and I’m too busy to figure it out, the cold water is working without error codes. And my research says, Tide Coldwater is excellent! I bought it and gave it a try. Is it my imagination? Let’s take this dingy/grayish tee shirt out into the sun, yep it’s gray, and the old one in the drawer is white And the gray one washed in the New Tide Coldwater is whiter than the dingy gray one. So, I tricked the fancy HE machine into soaking the dingy and grayed Tee shirts overnight with The New Tide Coldwater detergent. Let’s just say, I still haven’t taken the time to see why the hot water doesn’t load in my fancy HE washer, and it’s been 2 years now. My husband old and new tee shirts are all white and smell so fresh! Thank you Tide, please don’t discontinue the Coldwater... as it is, it’s really hard to find....But, it’s a true gem!

I need the cold water Tide

Please do not discontinue the Cold Water Tide in the small-ish bottle. I need it for my delicate items and could not possibly handle the huge bottle.

Outstanding all-around clean

I have many things that can not be washed in warm or hot water. This is by far the best detergent for cold water I have used. I really hope this will not be discontinued. Great product.
