The new formula for Tide Downy smells awful. This was my go-to detergent for years and I would buy it even when it was more expensive than other brands––but I won't be repurchasing.
I used to love using tide with downy. I stopped for awhile because of cost and finally went back because I loved the smell. I realized the color and consistency has changed, along with the smell. It doesn’t leave any downy scent anymore. I will not be buying this anymore once I am done with this bottle. Back to gain I go!
I noticed my clothes coming out with pink spots and thought maybe it was just a marker but after a lot of investigating and ruined clothes it was this product that dyed my clothes. 🤦🏻♀️ I have switched to a different detergent and not had anything turn pink.
I cannot believe they changed the scent of Tide w/ Downy April Fresh!! I used it for years and was so blindsided by this new scent. Now I don’t have a go to detergent. The new version smells terrible. I would use the original or bleach alternative scents as I liked those as well, but they changed those too! Smh, I don’t useTide at all now. I tried the Tide w/ Downy powder after reading the reviews of the other many unsatisfied customers, and someone gave a heads up that it still has the former scent. It does but it’s not the same as the liquid. While the scent is the original it’s a little weaker and doesn’t seem to clean as well. Why change a good thing??
Down he is such a fabulous sent so popular… Why not use it in a detergent! Great idea
I just received this as a gift . My question to the tide staff is this made for the front load washers because I don’t see (HE) on the front. Please get back to me as soon as possible before I use it.
I would like to use the product In order to review it… but cannot open it. We’ve tried pressing, turning. Screwdrivers, wrenches. Cannot open it ! How about some instructions,? And I am a product engineer and cannot figure out how to open ! It’s like a sealed vault!
Great product. Just started using this. My only suggestion is change the scent. The tide total scent was amazing. Please bring back that scent or product.
I knew they changed the scent and I did not like the new scent and I had quit buying it Recently I was cleaning out my Dads home and came across an old bottle in the cupboard. Wow what a find, this bottle smelled wonderful even after several years, I used the detergent and my clothes smelled as great as I remembered from years ago. Sure wish they would bring back the old April fresh Scent. It is so frustrating when you are used to using a product for years and they go and change it. Do they even realize how many customers they have alienated when they do this cost-cutting crap?
I bought a bottle of tide with downy recently. Smell is definitely different and I've began to itch, red skin. Old tide with downy worth the price, new tide with downy isn't. Please change it back to how it was.
I love this laundry detergent and it clean well the cloths. Tide is one of the brand I will not change for my clothes .
For the most part, this detergent works well. I think you still need to use a separate fabric softener though. It’s definitely not a replacement for softener. It’s comparably priced as far as laundry detergent goes.
I absolutely love Tide Plus A Touch of Downy Liquid Laundry Soap ! I find the extra boost keeps my clothes feeling soft and smelling great at all times !
I use this product If they are out of pods. This product works just as well as my other laundry. Your clothes come out smelling very fresh and the smell last very long and it’s very affordable
I love the smell of the clean freshness of Downy in Tide. This makes your clothes smell super good. Your clothes will be be soft and it cleans them really well. It is affordable if you love the way your clothes smell. I definitely would recommend it to everyone! Tide Plus A Touch of Downy Liquid
The best smelling laundry detergent out there. This laundry soap makes my clothes smell so amazing even weeks after washing. It’s affordable for the quality of the laundry detergent. Definitely recommend
Tide is the best laundry dergent in the market in my opinion. affordable price and great clean results every time.
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.
One of my favorite laundry detergents to use. This Tide detergent is a 2 in 1 product being that it’s combined with Downy fabric softener. It leaves a wonderful scent on clothes, bedding, and any other fabrics I wash and they feel refreshed, clean, and soft.
This is the ONLY laundry detergent I buy I love the scent and I have been using this brand for my whole life! I don’t think I’ll ever switch and this is the kind my mom uses as well. So it runs in the family
I love tide I feel like I can never put enough for it to really form up though I run through this at least once a week and I only have three people in my home it never gives me the latter but I do like the scent
I love this liquid, it is the best I have ever tried, I always use it on my clothes, for me it is the best
i trust this brand! it keeps my clothes clean and doesn’t ruin the color. it gets all the stains out
keep your clothes smelling clean up after you wash them it Keep your clothes smell fresh and clean after you wash them￼￼
Tide can be very strong and at times too strong for my skin, but the Tide with downy is better. It has a great scent and isn’t as strong in my opinion. The smell is awesome. I recommend this to those people who love Tide products.
I have been a faithful user for years. I came to this site after googling to see if there had been a recent formula change. I can’t bear the new smell. I have always given my clothes an extra rinse but even with that had to get out of bed and change my nightgown because I could not tolerate the smell. I try to keep a quantity on hand and i guess this was the first load I did with the new product. Really don’t know what to do, I loved the old Tide.
I love Tide and usually get the cold wash but enjoyed this very much. The smell lasts longer and it makes my cloths sooo soft! Tide is the only detergent I buy.
My family has used Tide for years. We loved the Touch of Downy April Fresh smell. It was light and pleasant, and everyone liked it. Now the new scent is horrible. Unfortunately, we have stopped buying it because it caused headaches and breathing problems. Really miss the old Tide we were used to. Please bring back the old scent!!
This has always been my go to detergent but it doesn’t seem the same lately! Did something change???
I was really hoping this would have the same cleaning power of regular tide but it doesn't. I tried pretreating stains and it just didn't work as well as the original tide. The smell is great!
I was floored (like, literally almost fell over from the scent) when the new formula was introduced. Before the change, i had found the perfect laundry detergent--with just a touch of scent. Because it changed, I started using a competitor's unscented brand. I have been trying the separate april fresh scent beads, but they are also too strong, and simply not the same scent. The old Tide with Downy had a very nice scent, and the new version isn't a stronger version of it... it seems totally different and yucky. I still had half a bottle left of the old scent that I have been saving, and on a whim I decided to use some on my laundry detergent recently. It reminded me of how wonderful the old scent was, and how disappointed I am about the change. I have a family of 5 plus a dog, so we do a LOT of laundry. Please find a way to bring back the old product! If people want strong smelling laundry, they should be advised on the label that is it stronger. It is no longer a "touch of downy". The new version announces to everyone who gets close to me that I perfumed up my clothes with heavy detergents. Not the message I want to send.
This detergent does an excellent job at cleaning clothes. It is one of the few detergents that i've tried that removes stain with little work from me. The scent from the bottle and while washing is so lovely. But once I put the clothes in the dryer or leave them to hang dry, the scent is gone. I know the cleaning aspect is what's important from a detergent. But the scent is really important to me as well. I really wish that the scent would stay even a little on my clothes because it truly is a lovely scent.
My sister bought me this as a gift and I'm in love. I live on disability income so I don't buy it for myself. I did however rearranged my budge around Tide w/Downey so now I can buy it, yahoo.
I've used Tide with Downy for YEARS. Several months ago, I brought some home and thought I got a bad batch - it smelled so bad. I literally took it back and to my dismay, found they all smelled like that. I contacted TIDE and they said they did consumer research and have updated the scent. Super bad decision. Remember when Coke changed their formula (New Coke) and we lost our minds about that? That switched it back and all was right with the world. I'm writing this now as my supply of "old" Tide with Downy is just about out and I'm crushed. Tide - be like Coke, go back to the original formulas and scents.
They changed the smell awhile back and I still cannot find a good replacement. New smell is overwhelmingly bad.
a clean you can trust with softness added tide plus a touch of downy is absolutely the beat detergent ever. It’s all I use I love the scent of April fresh!
The new scent is horrible! I’ve used tide, and now tide with downy for decades, and the new scent is awful. My kids even noticed and asked what had changed, because they don’t like it.
Used Tide w/Downy & Tide Original for years, but the last couple jugs smelled funny. It’s changed and smells awful now, and I won’t buy anymore until it changes back!!!
I am so sad you changed the scent earlier this year, I thought I just had a bad batch but nope on my 3rd bottle and it smells gross. Please change back!
We have been Tide customers for YEARS, but it's time to say goodbye. I can understand offering other scents, but don't take away the original. Take a lesson from history...remember New Coke?!?!
I cannot believe they would change this. Will no longer purchase unless they go back to original formula. So sad!!!! Please go back to old formula
My entire family is complaining. The scent is too strong. THE reason I used to love this product was for the baby soft Downey scent. Now, it STINKS.
I highly recommended this to all my friends !i use to use Purex but eventually I moved right on to this ! I love it
I have used this product for years and have loved the light, lovely smell. The new fragrance is overwhelming and unpleasant. Please bring the old one back!
They apparently changed the formula. We have used Tide with Downy for years. Suddenly the entire house smells like the detergent. Powerful and overwhelming odor. We will be switching brands.
I loved the scent of tide downy april fresh and didn't mind paying for it. The new scent is strong and awful. No indication on packaging of scent change either. Just wasted money as it's unusable.
I love this product, but unfortunately the new fragrance smells terrible. Please bring back the original April fresh fragrance.
Please bring back the old scent! I don’t buy Tide anymore because all of the scents are horrible. I loved the old Tide with Downy!
THE NEW SCENT IS TERRIBLE!! I WILL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW DETERGENT ASAP. IT'S SO SAD THAT TIDE WITH APRIL FRESH DOWNY HAS BEEN IN MY FAMILY FOR YEARS AND NOW JUST DISSAPEARED.
Please change the scent back to the old one. I used to use Tide w DOWNY april fresh on everything and I love that scent.....now I cannot even use the current formula on anything.
We've used Tide with Downy for years and loved the fresh smell. Last week I washed clothes with a new bottle of Tide. It smelled so bad I had to get rid of it! Everyone in the family hated it.
I returned a bottle of tide to walmart and questioned if someone switched the soap to a cheap soap. I purchased another tide with Downey and it had the same strong soap smell!
I believe P/G changed scent to cut cost! Smells a lot like the cheaper simply tide detergent, with maybe a hit of downy. IDK. Shame on you P/G!
I’ve been using Tide with Downy since it hit the shelves a long time ago. The smell has changed significantly in the last few months - and not for the better.
New scent smells like a man's cologne that has gone bad. Very disappointing. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK TO THE OLD FORMULA.
I LOVE this product! It smells amazing, my clothes are so clean. I use to use Arm and Hammer, and decided to give Tide a try, am I so happy I did. I will have to say you are a bit pricey.
April fresh was the only scent I could use for my migraines. This new scent is terrible. Really upsetting it changed. Please bring back the original April Fresh, or you’ve lost another customer.
Also confirmed with Tide, that they have changed the base scent of this product. I'm so sad! We have used this for years, and will now have to switch to something else.
After recent purchases, we confirmed with Tide chat support that they have changed the April Fresh scent. We've bought this detergent for years and are very disappointed with this!
This product leaves your clothes soft, clean, and smells great! The liquid is thick and last a long time! Great product!
I love this one because it leaves my clothes soft and smelling great! tide ultra oxi was to harsh, made my fam itch.
This product is amazing! My husband and kids loveee this smell. It cleans just wonderful. The only downfall is the price but sometimes we can get it on sale...
Tide with Downy combines an excellent cleaning laundry detergent as well as the wonderful scent of Downy and softness. Love the job it does for my clothes in cleaning.
I love how my clothes smell and feel after each wash
If i could give this product more stars i would. I love tide the way it cleans the clothes and the way it smells when there done. So clean and fresh. Well worth the price
Tide+Downey gives the clean of original Tide plus the softness of Downey! Bought at Costco on sale and that made this Tide a win/win combination!
Best smelling detergent! Pair it with Downy Clean Breeze, oh my God! Every time I do laundry, folks say my house smells so good. Tide gets clothes clean, but the scent of the Clean Breeze with Downy.
I absolutely love the power of Tide Pods mixed w the clean April Fresh scent. I couldn't have asked for a better combination.
I love Tide! Removes stains and smells so good. My favorite scent by far is the sweet dreams along with the sweet dreams dryer sheets. Please don't ever discontinue!
I tried this in the April fresh scent and not only did it get extreme dried stains out of delicate fabric but it smells so fresh and my clothes feel great I am so happy with this product.
i love this tide! 2 for 1 with downy already in it. i will use it for ever!
I will use it forever I love it thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!
I love the Tide with Downy. Makes my clothes soft and smell good.
My laundry smells great and even with our hard well water my clothes are soft!
So not only does P&G do away with the familiar scent of April Fresh Downy, but now it has altered the formula for the detergent, too. P&G needs to listen to consumers and bring back the "classic" scent of April Fresh Downy, which will then help Tide, too.
Of a norm I prefer a different brand but saw the Downy added and knowing Tide is probably most preferred and purchased I was excited to give it a try! The softness, fresh smell, static control softener gives and best yet not having to buy that extra Downy and take the time to dilute it when putting it in. First load was full of static. :( and really no Downy smell. So having to add Downy anyway to this product made it a no brainer...disappointed.
I've used this detergent before and liked it. I'm currently using the new Tide with Frebreze formulation. I prefer the previous Febreze formulation better, this one is too strong. I'll switch back to Tide with Downy.
I had been purchasing the regular laundry detergent and the fabric softener; but now they make this a 2 in 1 deal so i do not have 2 containers laying around and i don't have to mess with the fabric softener ball! The scent is wonderful, and it lasts a long time; my clothing that has been hung up in my closet for a while still smells fresh and that is what i love!!!
I have been a loyal Tide user for many years, as this is the detergent that my everyone in my family has used for decades. I recently tried the Tide Plus a Touch of Downy and loved it! I normally use regular Tide and Downy separately. This product is very convenient because it has both products combined in one. This product cleans my clothes the same as the other Tide products, but it also has Downy included in the formula so that my clothes come out soft, also. I purchased the HE formula for my front-load washer and have had no problems with over-sudsing. My clothes are coming out clean and soft and they smell very "April Fresh", which I very much enjoy. I especially love using this product to wash bedding and towels, because of the extra softness and freshness it provides them with. I love that this product is offered in the large 138 fl. oz. container, which lasts for a long time. This will definitely be a product I will continue to use! :)
We got the new Tide with Downey when we purchased our new washing machine. We were told we had to use the "he" type of detergent so we bought it where we bought the washer. After I washed our clothes, sheets, tablecloths and towels with the new detergent my husband began complaining saying the smell is unbearable. We recently purchased two new recliners (April 2014) and the smell from the detergent got into the fibers from our clothing and made them smell obnoxious as well. The are currently sitting outside airing out...but my husband still smells the Tide smell. This has been a huge headache for me. Even though I've found a new detergent that has no fragrance there are still a lot of things that we've washed with the Tide in our house. I bought the new washer to save water...I'm not saving water when I have to rewash everything. Some things need two washings to remove the smell. My husband wants to send the chairs back because he can't stand the smell. I hope with all my heart that leaving them in the back yard for a few days helps. I'm really upset about this. I have used Tide all my life and it really feels bad to have this big of a problem with it.
The new scent on the Tide with a Touch of Downy April Fresh is horrible. Why would you change it from the original? I have used Tide for the past 15 years and have always loved it. I loved it even more when you added the Downy to it. I will not be purchasing this product again. Ever. I cannot stand the candy-like sweet smell. Really disappointed.
I always buy Tide w/downey and loved the slight scent. I just bought this new formula and the smell is very strong. I don't like my clothes to smell like my laundry detergent. Looks like I will have to buy a new brand. Too overbearing!!!!
Your clothes are clean, soft, and smell great. As an added bonus, you don't have to remember the fabric softener. Wrinkles are a thing of the past. I will use Nothing, absolutely Nothing else....
