As many reviewers have noted, I don’t understand why the scent of Tide ‘original’ changed. My family used Tide all of my life and as an adult I have also used it (30 years). How can you change the scent and still call it ‘original?’ It doesn’t smell as good and now has me considering changing detergents for the first time in my life. When have a good product, why change it?
Can you really change the scent and still call it "original"? The scent is different, the color is different, and the liquid is thinner. If the scent changed in 2019 it finally caught up here in NJ. I do not like the smell as my clothes are washing or the smell it leaves on my clothes and towels. I'm not sure I'll be able to suffer through the rest of the bottle. Boooo!! to Tide
I wasn't a original tide user. I used tide with downy. One day a co-worker and I were working on a project and I noticed how fresh her clothes smelled! I asked her what type of detergent she uses which was tide original. I didn't remember tide smelling like that and I loved it! I did research and found the scent changed in 2019! I switched from tide with downy which smells wonderful to tide original just because I love the smell of it.
Why did original tide change from blue to green? I’m allergic to a lot of things. I never change detergents for that reason. How do I get the blue original tide?
I have used Tide for over 20 years I believe a bad batch must have gone out regular tide is purple smells different and now husband in hives. Bought at costco
I’ve used this my entire life and now I’m itchy and the smell is horrible. I even made my boyfriend (now my husband) change his laundry detergent to the original scent years ago. I’ll have to find a new brand now.
I liked the sound of High Efficiency but when I saw the look I was done: Plastic bottle. Certainly, you know, recycling of such bottles is a joke. Boxes with powder make much more sense; you get more for the volume without the plastic. I see you have goals for sustainability, but they remain goals. Despite goals, you don't admit what is going into the wastewater now. No, no Tide for me.
Why?!!!!!????? I’ve NEVER in my entire 55 years have had any type of skin problems and have used Tide. Now I have irritations and hives, dry skin, etc. I don’t know what detergent I’ll use now. So disappointed. Why change an original scent?!!!!!
I have never been on this website, didn't know about it. I found it because I was doing a search trying to find out if there has been a change in the formula. Please know I have used Tide all of my adult life - Im 72. When I can't find Mountain Spring I use Original. Mountain Spring is not carried anymore by Publix. OMG, it's terrible. Smells like body odor to me! I thought it was just me until I read all of the reviews here. What were you thinking!! Go back!!
This formula is no longer the original scent. I've used Original Tide for over 25 years and loved it. Now unfortunately I will have to find a new product. The scent is so overpowering it makes me nauseous. Please bring back the true original scent!!
After my last wash with Tide Original Scent, I began having an allergic reaction to the strong chemical smell - headache, cough, swollen throat, runny nose, and a STRONG smell that takes hours to go away. This is the best product on the market but it's useless to me now. So disappointed, plus I have just thrown away $20 that I can't spare. THANKS, TIDE.
After decades of use, suddenly my boyfriend is developing hives due to our Tide regular scent laundry detergent purchased at Sam's Club. I doubt we can get the fragrance free stuff in bulk for the same deal so switching brands is our only option. I've used Tide since I was a child and I'm now 46. Have always been happy. But his back and arms literally look deformed in the mornings so there's no way we can continue. Not sure why the formula was changed (again...), please change it back.
The smell of tide now is absolutely disgusting. I never wash my clothes with anything else but the clothes come out smelling musty. I have to go rewash my clothes with something else.
I used Tide detergent exclusively for decades. I was pleased with how well it cleaned and the pleasing scent. The new “original” scent is a dealbreaker. It is way too strong and not pleasing to smell. It is ridiculous label this scent as original. I would not have purchased it if I realized I had changed it. Here’s an idea: leave the original as the actual original. Make other, new scents and label them as something else. Let supply and demand determine whether you continue to make this new awful scent. It is a shame to run off lifetime customers.
I have used this Tide or Tide Ultra for decades. Mostly Tide Ultra the last 10 or so. Their stain removing power is unparallelld. Never any need for stain removers- a few drops of this kills any and all stains. Sadly, though, the fragrance has changed. It's now a heavy feminine/floral, and is extremely strong, to the point where I won't use this by itself any more. I mix a little bit with unscented tide. It's especially gross to use by itself towels or anything that touches my skin directly. There's nothing worse than getting out of the shower or washing your face then using a towel that smells like that. PLEASE change it back!!! In addition, Tide Ultra has become very hard to find, and only comes in small bottles, though with the new smell, you'll never use it undiluted, anyway.
Super bummed! I've always used Tide with no issues but have suddenly developed hives from I'm assuming is a formula change? Stay far away if you are allergy prone.
Everyone complains about the horrible odor of this Tide and yet the company refuses to switch back. That doesn't make sense. It's like spitting in paying customers faces. Why did they change it in the first place? I switched to Kirkland. It doesn't make my laundry stink and it does a great job cleaning.
The fragrance is objectively overpowering. Even after washing clothes 3 times, the smell lingered in clothing and gave my family a headache.
I bought a huge container of original Tide at Costco... brought it home and thought I had bought the wrong product. It smells super florally and strong!! Does not smell fresh at all like it use to. Makes me nauseous. I will have to rewash all of the clothes I washed with this a few times...I don't know what I will do with the huge container of detergent!
The new smell is nauseating. Obviously the market research wasn’t accurate as so many people hate the new smell. So why won’t you change it back? What are you doing proctor and gamble? Why change something that was great as is and make it terrible? You lost a customer for good. Something is very wrong with your marketing research and quality depts.
I thought I'd accidentally grabbed the wrong bottle of Tide. I've lived a life of horrible allergies so I've had to be selective in soaps and detergents for years. After using this new bottle of Tide, I was up all night with the sweet smell and had an allergic reaction. I wish I knew this was going to be changed before investing in the cost of a large liquid bottle and washing all my sheets and clothes in it. Why change a good thing?
Grew up with Tide, served in the Air Force with Tide, moved across the country and Tide was always a scent that felt like home. It was a clean not overpowering fragrance that has been like a comfort I and then we relied on, but no more. Tide has changed, it’s not right. The first one I got home, I smelled it and returned it because I thought it was bad, then I just thought I was going nuts, now I see from other reviews it’s just changed. What a bummer, no longer with I be buying Tide.
All of my life, I have purchased the cheapest brand detergents. Until recently, I tried Tide. WOW! What a product. Worth every penny. The scent alone is rich and fresh. And the smell stays with clothes days after the wash. Cleaning power is amazing as well. In the long run, it's not much more expensive than the cheap brand I was buying---if you factor that you use a lot less of this product (1 bar on the cap), saves you time in re-washing or manual scrubbing, and the fact that this will make your clothes last longer.
I recently bought the "new" Tide Original. The smell is nice, but too strong. Now after wearing my clothes, I'm covered in hives. This new formula is not good and Tide should go back to the original original formula. So sad.
Used original Tide for 20 years, my mother used it, but no more. Had to re-wash my clothes, took it back to the store. can't say enough how bad this smell hit me. I washed sheets and pillow cases but my eyes itched after laying on my pillow. Yes up in the night to change bedding. And heck no will not buy Tide free after this...if that's what your Tide marketing department is planning!!
I have always stuck with Tide original because I know I am not allergic to it. I recently got a new jug of Tide. A few days ago I started to get hives all over my body. It has taken days to figure out why. I was changing and noticed that my clothes smelled stronger than normal so I went and checked the new bottle and sure enough the scent was different. I pulled out old clothes not washed with new Tide and so far no hives. I am now trying new products in hopes of finding one I am not allergic to. So sad and very uncomfortable!
This is not the original scent, they’ve changed it. The new one is so overpowering it is disgusting. I’ve literally used Tide my entire life, it was the definition of what clean laundry smelled like for me. Please bring back the actual original scent!!!!
I bought this product at Target. Tide Breeze smells great and have bought it many times before; this Original Tide smells absolutely terrible. Did my batch of laundry tonight and couldn't sleep the odor was so bad. Buy Tide Breeze, do NOT buy the Original Tide.
I have used Tide for over 25 years and used no other detergent. But I can’t get over the new scent - it is overwhelmingly perfume-y and sticks with you all day. It seriously gives me headaches. And for the company to suggest buying Tide with a different scent?! I don’t want my clean laundry to smell like anything other than clean laundry! They make candles that smell like fresh laundry, how hard can it be for a detergent company to make a fresh clean smelling detergent?! This was my last bottle of Tide.
The Original Tide laundry detergent was outstanding in its cleaning results and the clean fresh fragrance it left in my laundry. I am so disappointed in the change. I think my laundry smells as tho it is slightly soured. ( as tho it was left in the washer for several days) . It reminds of Gain, that I tried once and hated the smell it left in my clothes. I have sadly purchased my last bottle of Tide detergent.
I miss the actual original scent, that smelled clean and fresh. The scent now smells like floral perfume. My family has all noticed and we have switched to Arm and Hammer Fresh Scent- it smells more like Tide Original than Tide Original itself. Its unfortunate because it is effective- but the scent is just not the same.
My only complaint about Tide Original scent is the actual scent. It's overwhelmingly strong.
I can't say much about the quality of the detergent because I only used it twice and I can't stand to get close to the clothes because even after a 3 rd rinse they smell so bad. If this is supposed to be a :warm, rich scent with some woody notes", then I hate to think what they would call rotting cabbage. I ended up leaving it in the laundry room in my building and hope some one can find a use for it. I see that there are a lot of people complaining about how the smell has changed. I bought a different detergent and had to wash everything a 2nd time to get the scent (stench) out. I will NEVER buy Tide again
Why would you change the original scent that you've had for years? I didn't realize the change until recently because I purchase the large sizes from costco and it lasts me a long time. This new scent is just so awful I literally gag every time I smell it. You shouldn't call it the original scent because this is far from it. Whoever decided to change the scent in the company made a poor decision. I'm no longer purchasing this anymore unless you decide to bring back the REAL original scent. I'm irritated that you would keep this original scent label and trick a customer into thinking it was original when it's not.
I have over the years noticed Tides original scent has changed and smells like stale urine. I have switched brands for this reason.
I like this product. It does it’s job at washing clothes. It’s affordable and I like it. Its the only one I’ve used for many years. I used to use another detergent but I did t like it. I like this one instead.
Tide is my go to. Over all I feel like it does the best job. I like there are many varieties but stay away from fragrance additives due to allergies.
I love the Tide Original scent it’s my all time go to. Also great stain remover. Highly recommend.
Love the smell of Tide original and the cleaning power is absolutely the best. Always on sale too at most retailers and you can find weekly coupons.
Tide is always my Go to detergent. Clothes look clean and washed properly. I definitely recommend.
use this for washing my clothes have been using it for years. i have sensitive skin and has yet to trigger my eczema
Tide is one of my favorite laundry detergent. My clothes always come out clean and smelling fresh. It's very easy to use and a little goes a long way!
It works perfectly for me, I use this product years ago, and still good, just I bought the original scent and just ride without downy, I feel it works better.
Tide Original Scent is one of my favorites in clothes detergents. It's gentle on your clothes but tough on smells. This product has been around forever it's a very much trusted brand and the smell is awesome. It is pricey though, I recommend it if it can fit in the budget.
It’s alright. I find the scent to be a bit strong. I go for this in a pinch. The price is good. And I know it does clean well.
Great scent, clothes always come out clean and smelling fresh. Doesn't matter how dirty or how old the stain is, it will always come out clean.
My go to laundry detergent for everyday use. Gets the job done and affordable. Smells good.
Have used Tide for years. Try to always get unscented. Bought Original and it has a terrible odor. It dissipates within a few minutes but in the meantime it is awful. I wish I could explain the smell but I can't, it is just bad. Not sure what change you may have made but hope it goes back to having a clean smell. I always buy the large contain but sure wish I hadn't this time. Thank you and have a great day.
Oh this is definitely the best detergent out there in my opinion. My mom used it when I was a kid and she was very particular about laundry. It does a good job of cleaning and it smells decent. As I’ve been an adult I have tried to buy more cost efficient brands but always come back to tide. It does the best job of cleaning.￼
Tide is very reliable, I feel my clothes deff get clean and they also end up smelling nice.
You changed the scent of Original. I’ve used Tide Original scent for decades as it always left your clothes clean and fresh. Now they smell like cheap perfume. Please bring back the scent from the early 2000s.
I've been a life-long "original scent" user. Whatever the formula was switched to over the last year-or-so has been horrible. I have to run the rinse cycle three times to get my clothes to not smell like I was assaulted in the perfume aisle. Wearing a shirt with the smell is like wandering around with a can of Lysol being sprayed at my face all day. I'm not sure how it can be billed as "original scent" when it most certainly is not. I'm not sure how even people that actually prefer a scent to their laundry can stand it. I'll try the "sensitive skin" option and hope it cleans just as well, without the ghastly smell.
I love tide. The stain fighting power is unmatched in any other detergent and original scent keeps my clothes smelling so fresh and clean! It’s worth the extra $$ over other detergents.
Several laundry detergents have scents that trigger my migraines but the original Tide smells nice and doesn’t bother me. I will not use anything else.
Lifelong tide original user, just started a new bottle that must be from the fragrance update from a couple of years ago (I am single and bought bulk packages) and I was so disappointed in the fragrance. It has undertones that smell like MILDEW- the last thing I want my laundry to smell like!! The smell is still strong 3 days after washing; my sheets, towels, clothes. After 57 years, I need to make a change- TODAY- need to re-wash everything to get that stench out.
I prefer the smell of Gain, but Tide does a great job of getting our clothes clean. It even removes the grease/oil smell from my husband's work clothes. The scent is a bit more musky than I'd prefer, but as far as detergent goes, Tide is a solid buy.
I like the classic laundry scent of this stuff and it does a good job cleaning my clothes. Decent price and lasts awhile.
The only detergent I will buy. The smell is classic and it gets my clothes clean and always leaves them smelling fresh.
The best fabric detergent out there in my opinion. Everything always smells fresh and clean and nothing needs to be re-washed, always gets the stains out on the first try. Great concentrated liquid so you don’t have to use much in your wash to get full power.￼
We’ve used Tide original scent detergent for years. It’s worked on all our clothes especially my husbands. He works in a machine shop and comes home with the dirtiest jeans and tee shirts. Everything comes out great. We’ve recently gotten a new washer and dryer and now use HE Tide. Same results. Tide Original Scent Liquid
The only brand I will use on my clothes. I have tried other brands but I feel like they never compare to Tide.
I use Tide ultra oxi and I love it. It leaves my clothes smelling so good and gets though stains out. When washing clothes it is so strong it makes my whole house smell like it and also when I dry you can smell it outside.
This year I switch to tide and I love it. It Makes clothes fresh and clean. And paired it with downy tide booster. Clothes smelt good after they were washed.
My go to for laundry detergent!!! I used to always purchase gain but, I was out one day and had to use tide. My laundry looked so much cleaner! Including my black clothes and jeans that I hang dry…no fade whatsoever!
This detergent works really good and leaves cloths smelling good. The only thing is it’s not as cheap as I could make detergent for myself
I mean, it’s tide. Everyone loves tide. The only con is that their price point can be higher than other brands and I think it’s because they have the name to do it with. I wouldn’t say the quality of tide is much greater than it’s competitors but it’s still a good product that we use regularly
Tide is my go to laundry detergent. It cleans my close effectively and leaves them smelling great. It also gets all the odors out.
i love using this for my clothes because it gives a good smell i don’t use any other liquid but this one!
I grew up on Tide, it was all my mom used, and I've used it all my life. Suddenly, I noticed that the clothes do not come out smelling as fresh and there is no scent at all. I am using liquid Tide. I just washed a t shirt for the second time today. In the past, all I had to do was put whatever amount of liquid Tide I was going to use directly on the stain and throw it in the wash. No longer. It's completely stopped working. smh. And it's not my machine, my machines are less than a year old. I've had to go to Gain and I don't like it, I miss that fresh scent of original Tide. By the way, why is it that the powdered Tide doesn't smell like liquid Tide? You'd think they'd smell the same. I bought some of the powder, but I've decided just to use Gain. If this doesn't work, there's always, Persil I guess, but I want my Tide fixed! So sad.
Tide is my favorite detergent. It cleans my clothes so well. If I have stains on something and forgot to use stain removal before washing it most of the time the stain came out anyways. It's so powerful I love it.
This liquid is thick so it dilutes well and I use it to pretreat grease and gas soaked clothing
I’m my opinion tide is one of the top brands of laundry detergent! It’s important to get a good quality detergent
i absolutely love tide! it smells amazing and it’s one of the only products i’ve actually even able to use without breaking out. i would definitely recommend to anyone considering to buy it! 10/10 satisfied.
Tide original scent is my favorite. Tide makes great products, and my family has been using them for years.
Works great and I love the smell. The cap is well-designed so you don't wind up with detergent dripping down your bottle.
If I Could Give This Item 0 Stars I Would. So I Purchased This Laundry Detergent. At Walmart When I Started To Use It My Mom Was Sick With Allergy Symptoms Hay Fever And Chills. I Really Love This Detergent But I Can't Buy it Anymore Because Of My Mom. I would Love To Buy This Laundry Detergent When I Am Doing Laundry By Myself At a Laundromat But It Is Going To Be Next Year For Me To Buy It I Will Be Switching To Gain Laundry Detergent Thank You
This product smells amazing and leaves my clothes smelling fresh and clean after a wash!
I used tide at my mother in laws and I thought something was wrong with her washer. I came home and as soon as I ran out of tide and bought a new bottle, I realized the scent changed. It is a terrible smell, like cigarette smoke covered in perfume. I been using tide for over 30 years and have never had a problem paying more for it because it smelled clean and did a great job. Not the case anymore. It actually gives me a headache, my hubby even noticed it and trust me that stuff doesn't bother him.
How can you call this original? The smell is horrible, caused burning in my eyes and could not stop coughing, had to buy other detergent and wash clothes twice to get the stench off my clothes, will not be purchasing tide again
Very disappointed by the original scent change without warning. Purchased a 225 fl oz and a 208 fl oz sizes at costco that now will not take back. Now I am forced to use Tide Free and have wasteful original scent containers. How should I dispose of it?
My family has used Tide for decades. I just purchased a bottle in the last few weeks and boy what a smell. Who decided to up the scent on the product? It reeks! My house reeks, my clothes, my bedding. I have allergies and have used Tide for years because it was always mild and had very little scent. Now I have to find a new laundry detergent. Some dummy at P
Used Tide original for decades until they changed the scent without a notice. I too got headaches and migraines from this new formula. I too was up changing my bedding in the middle of the night. Horrible too strong of a cheap scent. Won’t ever purchase this again.
The new scent is way to strong and smells like old lady perfume. Don’t like it at all.
I’ve been a life long tide original user, as have my parents and grandparents. It’s been a scent that has always made me feel at home no matter where I was. However recently they’ve changed the original smell and how it smells like a cheap knock-off. It causes rashes, headaches/migraines, and sometimes even makes me nauseous. I will be switching to another product due to this unannounced and unwelcome change. You’ve lost a 3rd generation tide user because of this.
I grew up with Tide and it’s the only thing I’ve ever used on my laundry. I’m so incredibly disappointed by the change to your product! This new(not original) scent is disgusting and overpowering. I’m not sure why your R
I have not had any issues with this staining my clothes. I really like the fresh scent. I trust Tide even with my more delicate linens. This is such a popular time that I have no problem finding it anywhere.
Absolutely amazing product. I am in love with the scent. All pros, no cons. Works perfectly and gets the job done. I wouldn’t change anything about it. Price is very affordable. I recommend this to everyone!
This product smells like home to me. Does the job and leaves clothes smelling and looking fresh! Affordable and great!
My favorite laundry detergent. Always keeps my laundry clean and fresh. I also like rides laundry detergent in the white bottle.
I love this product it’s great to make slime no cons at all pros are smells good activates slime good you can not improve this product and it’s not to affordable but it’s worth the product 100% recommend
Ok, this will be a little lengthy but stay with me and hear me out. I've been using Tide laundry products for over 40 years and I was around when liquids came on the market and I used them so I know what the fragrance was like back then. When I first started using the liquid Tide in the early 90s it had a unique but simple fragrance which smelled just like a strong soap. Then as the years progressed, people complained that they didn't like their clothes smelling like "laundry soap" so the era of "fruity, floral, disgraceful scents" was born and every detergent manufacturer followed that trend and folks were happy but I was not so I went back to powder AND another brand. Then folks got tired of of heady, headache inducing aroma of "flowers and sweet tarts" recently and wanted something else; hence it seems that Tide has reverted back to the old scent of Tide liquid with just a few minor adjustments to the fragrance. I decided to try it and I was very surprised to find that it had that old familiar soap smell with just a hint of "perfume" but not the sickeningly sweet fragrance from just a short time ago. When the proper amount is used per load of laundry, clothes come out of the dryer with just enough fragrance to notice but not enough to overwhelm you. In conclusion; each generation that gets introduced to Tide's line of laundry products will always have some gripe or compliment. Those of us who were around when the original scent of the powder and later the liquid are really the ones who notice how much or little the scent has changed over the years. P.S. The only reason I gave 4-stars for value is due to the price still being one of highest among laundry detergents but still pretty good since I'm still getting Tide's signature clean.
I use the Original Scent Liquid Tide because it has HE which my machine recommends me to use. I have been using Tide for years. I used to use the powder, now I love the liquid or pacs. Whenever I would wash like a comforter I always had white soap in my comforter, then I started using the liquid and did not have this problem at all.
Why? Just a simple question...why take a product that has decades of success and make such a radical change to the scent profile? I thought I was buying the same stuff I had used for years. I did one load of sheets and had to get up at 1AM to take the sheets off the bed and pillows because the scent was overwhelming. It gave me an irritated throat and a headache. I couldn't even bear to have the sheets on the floor in the same room. A barely there scent is what clean laundry should smell like. I don't want my sheets smelling so intensely that it wakes me up at night. And I certainly don't want whatever is left behind on the clothes next to my skin all day or being stronger than any scent I choose to wear. I'm sorry to say this improvement is a huge fail.
I finally opened a new bottle of Tide after using up all of my previous stockpile. The smell was so overwhelmingly offensive I thought that there must have been something wrong with it. The scent is so strong and chemical like it was enough to make you nauseous. After going online I found out the "original" isn't the "original" anymore. I have use Tide my entire life but not anymore.
I have used Tide Original forever but the scent has changed. It is a horrible toxic chemical now. I have asthma and the scent causes a severe respiratory reaction requiring breathing treatments No problem, Tide says, switch to one of their other products. But this is always a problem for me. Every time I get within 20 feet of someone who uses Tide original, I cough and gasp for air. Also the scent will linger for 24 hours in a room. P
My family has used tide since I was born and this new scent is absolutely foul. When it first changed, we started using the “simply clean and fresh” in “refreshing breeze” because it still had the original scent. Plot twist, now even that one smells nasty. Furthermore, the alleged mountain breeze that has the old original scent is nowhere to be found. Explain that. Either change back the original or make it available in some form because I can not live with this new scent. Thanks
This product has a nice fresh clean scent that is reliable at cleaning my clothes and removing dirt and stains. I would recommend.
Love the scent and it simply works. My clothes come out fresh and clean, every single time. The pods are a little more convenient but I still get the liquid when it’s on sale.
TIDE! This is my absolute favorite laundry detergent. I've had friends tell us our clothes smell good, which I never thought I'd hear! haha. I've tried other Tide scents, but always go back to the OG scent.
I agree with the numerous recent reviews about the new scent of Tide Original. I too am a long time user of Tide, and was appalled when I did my first load with a new bottle. I am scent sensitive and am having trouble wearing the clothes I just washed. How can we find the Mountain Spring version when it isn't even listed as one of your products? I buy in bulk and am out a lot of money on a product I can't use. Very frustrating.
What happened to Tide? The new formula which was developed about two years ago is literally one of the worst things I have ever smelled in my life. It’s a breathtakingly bad blast of persistent fragrance that lingers in clothes even after you’ve washed them a dozen times, for months after you’ve put them in a drawer, and gets all over everything they touch, leaving a heinous smell residue. I don’t even know how a chemical so potent and enduring can exist. Whatever new formulation they’re using should be criminalized. I can smell Tide wafting through my neighborhood, and wafting from people coated in Tide-washed clothing literally 25 feet away from me. It’s everywhere and it’s awful. Whatever focus group okayed this was crazy. Read all of the other reviews. Tide took a mild scent they used for 30 years and replaced it with something so shockingly intense, disgusting, and long-lasting it literally makes people sick. You have to wonder what types of chemicals they’re using in order to get the smell to be so intense and so enduring. Very scary stuff, folks.
This smells good, but not super fragrant or floral. It always does an excellent job!
I love the long lasting fresh clean scent of tide original laundry detergent. The pods make it so mess free me convenient to use.
Recently purchased original scent just to find out the scent has changed and it is not pleasant and way overpowering now. Was able to do some searches online to find out the true original scent is now called Mountain Spring, however it's been impossible to find this scent anywhere. Please make Mountain Spring easier to find?
My whole family is broken out from this. The HE is even worse!! The clothes come out slimy. So I bought 4 free
Depended on it all my life, but now it smells horrible, broke me out in hives, and I cannot use it anymore. Afraid to purchase any other Tide products. So, sad ... I loved this stuff.
The original is not the original. We buy in bulk, and only recently found out that the original is now a putrid smelling waste of my money. Even our kids won't wear clothes washed in this stuff it smells horrible, even at half the recommended amount. Good luck finding the mountain spring scent, which they say is what the re-labled what had been original since 1984. Lost a family with 6 kids thanks to your perceived need to change what was working for millions of people.
I have been using Tide for many years. I disagree with all the comments that indicates that the smell is bad. For me it smells great and my clothes is nice and clean.
I don’t know whose idea it was to change the scent of Tide “Original,” but it doesn’t make sense on any level. The new scent is disgusting and I won’t be using Tide products anymore. So sad.
I have been a loyal Tide user for many years; however, this recent iteration has an unpleasant fragrance. It seems as though detergents have recently become overpoweringly fragrant. I enjoy a subtle clean fragrance and may need to look elsewhere. Overall a good performer as usual.
If you wanted me to switch to tide free, there are better ways to do it than cause my family headaches and a rash. We have like many here are deeply disappointed loyal users and actually thought we had a washing machine issues with the rinse cycle. Please advise how to go about getting $25 back for the 208 ounces size. I will deal with a hostile wife.
Tide ruined a perfectly good product that had been used by my family for 40 years by changing the smell to the overbearing disgusting flowery smell and not warning its customers that Original is NOT actually original anymore. What a cop out! Also mountain spring is not the old scent and can’t be found anywhere in liquid form. MAJOR FAIL Tide! Stop losing all your customers and go back to the TRUE original scent before you changed it to this disgusting mess!
Tide is the only laundry detergent I will use for my family’s laundry. I never have to worry if the laundry will come out clean or not. Fresh, clean scent is very long lasting.
Love this detergent it smells amazing and the fresh scent lasts a long time leaves my clothes clean without leaving any residue it's also one of the only detergents that doesnt irritate my skin most others break me out in a rash or make me itchy
I will always use tide! It makes my laundry smell so nice and fresh. My mom used it, and now I do.
I haven't used another detergent in over 10 years. I've strayed but always came back to Tide. The scents are pleasant and clean. Most importantly the detergent gets stains out. No need for fancy pre-treatments. I would recommend you give the original a try.
I will use this laundry soap until the end of time. It works well and is very affordable
I like using original scent tide because it just smells like fresh laundry. It keeps my clothes soft and doesn’t make them fade. You can’t beat the OG.
Love my tide! Keeps clothes smelling fresh and gets the stains out. Always catch it on sale. Having a hubby that works in construction and raising 3 boys...tide us a must!
Cleans clothes well. Easy to use and mixes well and dissolves all the way. Colors stay bright and clothes have a nice scent for some time.
Just love tide and love the smell! Always know my clothes are clean and fresh after using this!
They changed the smell. I don’t like it. I never even bothered to smell it when I bought it. I’ve been using Tide original for years.
This is an effective laundry detergent. Has a very mild scent. Effective on heavily soiled laundry
Tide cleans well and leaves your clothes looking good. The colors are more vibrant using Tide than a store brand I had been using. It comes in many scents. Gets the real dirty work clothes clean.Tide Original Scent Liquid
The OG. All I trust with my clothes. Love the smell, price is fair and you can usually find it on sale
Tide with oxy is the way to go. Bottles came and were much bigger than I thought. Good deal. I looked at Jewel and Walmart and they were 3 buck's more a bottle so I got them just a little cheaper than at the store and didn't have to go out and buy them and then lug them into the house. Coming right to your door is nice in the winter. I live in Chicago it's cold and we just had a snowstorm (can't get out of the house!) thank you Amazon. Now that I have used this detergent a few times, my clothes and bedding smell so fresh and the smell lasts long. Love tide ultra with oxy. Great buy.
Works perfectly for my clothes. I like the liquid tide more than the pods because I feel like it really does a better job at cleaning my stuff. One thing is– it’s harder to carry over to my washing machine (I have laundry on my floor) so if there was a way to make it lighter that’d be cool!
Tide is tried and true. It removes stains and cleans my clothes really well. I’ve started to use it with oxiclean and love the combo.
It honestly doesn't matter which scent of tide it is i love them all because they clean very well I use other brand occasionally but for the most part stick with tide.
My daughter has sensitive skin, so we can’t just use any laundry detergent. Cleans great. Smell is not bad either
I’m a Tide fan through and through. I’ve tried others and they just don’t get the job done like Tide does.
We regularly used tide for probably 10 years and I still love how well it works and doesn’t affect my sensitive skin. Since looking into clean supplies I’ve realized this has more chemicals than I would like to be using and have started phasing it out
My mom always used Tide laundry detergent on our clothes and now I use it as well. It is a staple product in our homes and works wonderfully to get our clothes clean. Has the original scent we love!
I only use tide, because I have allergies to most scented soaps. Tide cleans and freshens without causing reaction.
I’ve used this detergent all my life. I absolutely love it. Gets the stains out and smells great. Really cleans clothes.
this detergent works super well and fights out all odors and spillage that gets on all of my laundry. it leaves your laundry smelling amazing and super clean.
Best detergent. The scent is clean and not too strong. Gets my clothes clean and removes dirt. It can mess with the color of cottons if the liquid touches the fabric without water. It is best to apply this in the soap dispenser if your washer has one. If not, i recommend applying this away from your cottons, or start the wash cycle and apply it by diluting the liquid in the water that starts filling your washer.
The only detergent I will use! My husband and I Have very sensitive skin and this is the only detergent I can find that consistently doesn’t cause us to have reactions! Subtly clean scent and always happy with the product!
I have used original tide forever (despite the outrageous price) because I am highly allergic to other brands. After the formula was revamped, it now causes awful hives on me. Thanks tide for the warning! (Said with sarcasm) hope you plan to reimburse me for the bottles I purchased as well as doctor visits trying to clear the hives caused by this change (don’t worry, I’ve only had the hives for 8 weeks) would have greatly appreciated a warning that the formula changed
I will not use anything but tide. I love it so much. It doesn’t break us out and it really gets your clothes clean. Definitely getting the most bang for your buck.
I’m a loyal Tide fan and have been for years! I’ve tried to save money and buy other brands, only to quickly return to trusty Tide.
Great for making slime lol & this is the only detergent that has a fragrance & doesn't irritate the skin of my daughters.
Personally, I prefer the original scent of this tide detergent. I find that I actually only need to do about a third of the recommended amount for the load volume. Because the product is so efficient. I am only giving it four stars though because of the cost.
What can I say is laundry detergent! It smells pretty good on clothes and leaves them clean from stains! Only thing is that it claims certain loads but definitely is less than advertised depending on loads of clothing.
Tide definitely works well! I would say it’s the top brand. But it is pricey and other brands get the job done just as well.
I have been using Tide Original for 20 years and I just purchased a new bottle as I was out and the fragrance of the Original scent has changed without notifying the consumer. The fragrance smells cheap like Gain and it gives me an awful headache. I want my money back. This stinks sooo bad. Like cheap perfume. I do not want to smell like I threw a bottle of drugstore perfume on my clothes. Change it back please
I’ve used this detergent since I was a child. I think it smells so good and it cleans so well that anytime I’ve switched to try to save a few bucks, I always end up coming back. Brand loyalty is important when it cleans this well!
Great product timeless has been around forever and is always a staple. I love that p&g allows you to use coupons making this a very reasonable priced detergent. I always pick it up when I have a coupon!
Have been using this detergent forever and love it. I have sensitive skin and it has never bothered me!
Love the way my laundry smells...not over powering but still fresh. Leaves laundry clean and stain free with no pre treating. Recommend for sure!
Tide has never disappointed me. Always good to get out tough stains or smells.
Tide original liguid laundry soap is definitely my favorite laundry soap. Always cleans and smells the best. Love it!!
I’ve used this detergent for years. It smells great and keep clothes fresh. Gets stains out
Honestly it’s just the best- makes my clothes come out feeling and smelling cleaner than any other detergent
It doesn’t causes rashes on my kids’ sensitive skin, but does a pretty good job at stain removal. I give it 4 stars because bad stains need pretreatment and any stains that aren’t less than a few hours old have to be pretreated too.
Tide is a fresh scent. It’s a little too strong for me but my mom loves it. It is also reasonably priced
Tide lives up to it's name. This really leaves clothes smelling good but also takes out all the stains on the clothing too. I do want to try the "cleaner" products that it has using cleaners with less chemicals is big now. I think the price is good mostly because there is usually a coupon here and there.
Tide laundry detergent original scent is the absolute best. Worth paying a little extra to smell great every day. Highly recommend!
Love the way Tide smells and I know I’m getting a nice cleaning with this detergent. My clothes smell amazing once my clothes is dry.
Tide detergent is a great product. You can not go wrong buying this. My clothes seem to be more clean when I use Tide. Definitely a must
My absolute favorite laundry soap. And it still smells the same as when I was a kid.
Original tide always smells great and always does a good job at cleaning the laundry. I docked one star because the original tide powder still takes the cake for cleaning efficacy and smelling great.
This is one of the only brands I use since my husband is so sensitive. It’s a little pricier but worth it for our family.
I feel like I have tried nearly every brand of detergent out there, and I have always come back to Tide. Personally, I prefer just the original. I have tried it in different scents and with fabric softener and other variations, but in my opinion the best clean is original.
I have used this Detergent for years now. It has never let me down. It's great for fighting stains and removing smells for clothing. I especially like that it does it feed my colors or my blacks. I will continue to use this product.
I’ve always found Tide is worth the price, my clothes always come out clean and a little goes a long way, so it lasts longer than most detergents.
The new smell makes me feel sick! It reminds me of febreeze. It’s terrible! I’ve used tide my whole life but will need to switch unless I can find enough old bottles. Please change it back!
Great for washing anything! I buy the big container of it though! I like the original scent, but some of the others are good too!!!
A good reasonably priced detergent that gets the job done. It doesn’t leave a strong scent on clothing.
Love Tide detergent. It smells great and cleans so well. You can count on Tide to clean your clothes and get out stains. And your clothes will smell great!
This is the only product I use. I have sensitive skin so I’m picky on my detergents. Tide is also great to strip your clothes and towels to get rid of all the nasty filth even the washer can’t get clean. Most definitely recommend!
I am not at all pleased with the fragrance of this original product. The performance is fine but the fragrance is that of an inexpensive perfume - off putting to say the least.
Tide is always a good brand to use. A little goes a long way and the clothes are always clean and smell fresh after. The only complaint is that for the price I think you can find comparable detergents for cheaper. Tide can be pricy at times so sometimes I reach for something different
I love using Tide because it removes the toughest stains and leaves the clothes clean and smelling really good.
Tide gets your dirty clothes clean and smells great! A bit expensive so I only buy it when I have major coupons or it’s on sale! But it will always be my first choice
Tide is my favorite detergent of all time! I think it cleanses and removes stains better than any other.
This has been my favorite and go to laundry detergent. Gets the stains out and leaves my clothes looking clean. I also like the smell.
This is my favorite detergent, it leaves my clothes smelling clean and fresh! It is also a good detergent for towels, i never have a problem with my towels smelling bad. I do feel like it is pricey, but the big bottle usually lasts us a long time!
This is the only detergent I will buy. Good scent. Cleans consistently. Doesn’t irritate my boyfriends skin.
I Iike the original smell of tide because I always add scent booster so it is not overwhelming. Tide is always a great choice because it cleans clothes great and I do not have to worry about anything.
I use this brand because other brands tend to make my skin break out. I like that there is no added fragrance and it gets my clothes very clean. It also smells very fresh.
Very brand loyal to tide. Its the only thing ive ever used in my house. Its the only thing that works for everything. I used cloth diapers on all my kids and never even had any problems with stains. Used it through 4 states and probably 4 different types if water and can count on it to consistently work. This stuff is very thorough and always delivers. No reason to try anything else I'll just stick to what has always worked.
I have used Tide original scent for the past 6-7 years. It gets my clothes clean and smelling good while also leaving them feeling soft and plyable. My boyfriend and I both have sensitive skin and Tide does not cause any irritation for either of us.
Tide has always been my go to laundry detergent. It always leaves my clothes feeling clean and smelling good.
