FAQ

Q: How much Tide detergent should I use per load of laundry?

With Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™, measure liquid detergent with the cap from the bottle of detergent. For medium loads, fill to bar 1. For large loads, fill to bar 3. For HE full loads, fill to bar 5.

Tips: Always refer to the label on the carton or bottle for specific instructions. Use more detergent for heavily soiled loads. Recommended amounts are based on average water hardness. For very hard water use a little more detergent (approximately 1/4 dose). For very soft water use a little less detergent (approximately 1/4 dose). Always measure HE liquids using the cap from the detergent bottle. Do not measure HE liquid using the lines on the HE washing machine dispenser. If using a "compact" machine, use the recommended dosage of detergent and be sure to use an HE detergent for an HE machine.

Q: Is Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ safe for use on my high-performance/active wear items?

A: Yes. When used as directed, Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ is safe on all washable fabrics including high-performance and active wear. For best results, follow the manufacturer’s care label on your garment.

Q: Can I use Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ on other clothes?

A: Yes, Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ is safe for use on all your washable clothes, from the sports gear you wear on your morning run to the outfit you wear for the rest of the day.

Q: How is Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ different from Tide Plus Febreze Freshness?

A: Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ is designed to deliver a powerful deep-down clean to help remove tough odors, especially sweaty sports odors, while Tide Plus Febreze Freshness provides long-lasting freshness in addition to the Tide clean you love.

Q: Is Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ HE compatible with my standard washer?

A: Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ is available in two formulations: HE and standard. We recommend only using Tide Plus Febreze Sport Odor Defense™ HE with high efficiency washers.

Stained my bedsheet

I use this product for multiple types of washes (clothing, towels, bedsheets etc) and it stained my sheets. Not sure why this product stained when others did not.

We're sorry to hear about this and we'd like to help get your sheets back to looking brand new again. It may be useful to know that stains can be caused by the colorant in the product coming into direct contact with wet fabric. Another possible cause is that the dye transferred from another item washed in the same load. Other possible causes include the water being too hot for the fabric or dye in the fabric, the item being exposed to bleaches or solvents in any pre-treatments. The good news is that the dyes in our products will dissolve in water and will come out when you wash your sheets again in the hottest water temperature safe for the fabric. Also, be sure to use the recommended amount of the same detergent. You may need to wash your sheets more than once to completely remove the residue. If these tips do not help, our team would be more than happy to. Simply, give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Clogs Machine Dispenser

HE liquid too thick. Does not rinse out of machine dispenser. Must clean dispenser each time. Mix 1/2 recommended amount of detergent with water stirring to combine. Time consuming sticky mess.

Disappointed

I am disappointed with the sport odor defense. The armpitson my cycling jersey still smell bad after washing. I’ll stick with Penguin Wash or Nathan’s since I know they work fine.

WAY too perfumy

I can't tell if this product actually removes odors, or just masks them with heavy perfume.

AWFUL PRODUCT

I bought this product hoping that it would mask odor. It did the exact opposite! After several uses, each load smelled so terrible that I had to buy a new detergent and rewash each load.
