FAQ

Q: What is new Tide purclean™?
A: Tide purclean™ is the first bio-based detergent with the trusted cleaning power of Tide. Tide purclean™ delivers superior stain removal and cleans well in energy-saving cold water. In fact, Tide purclean™ cleans as well as Tide Original Laundry Detergent. With 65% bio-based ingredients, as certified by the USDA BioPreferred program, Tide purclean™ aims to set the performance standard for natural detergents and in turn bring more consumers to the natural detergent category.

Q: Why is Tide choosing to launch a natural detergent?
A: We believe the best way to help create a more sustainable future is to make the products that people use and love every day better. Tide purclean™ is the next step in our journey to create detergents that help consumers make sustainable choices. We are exploring using more natural ingredients not only because of the positive impacts an increased use of renewable materials will have on the environment and the sustainability of our business, long-term, but also because more and more consumers are seeking out natural ingredients in their products. After all, a more sustainable detergent can only have impact if people use it!

Q: How is new Tide purclean™ different from Base Tide? What changes did you make to the formula?
A: Tide purclean™ is the first bio-based detergent with the cleaning power of Tide, containing 65% bio-based ingredients. The Tide purclean™ formulation includes plant-based surfactants and solvents. Both formulas are held to the highest standards of safety and efficacy, but Tide purclean™ offers an option for consumers seeking a simple step to integrate renewable biobased products into their daily routines that meet their cleaning expectations.

Q: Does this really clean as well as Tide? (vs. Tide Original)
A: Yes! When we set out to develop Tide purclean™, our goal was to create a detergent we’d be proud to have in the Tide family.

Q: Does Tide purclean™ clean in cold water?
A: Yes. Our formulators have designed Tide purclean™ to clean even in cold water, helping you to do your part in energy conservation via cold-water washing. Heating wash water is the largest driver of energy consumption when running your washing machine. All the steps your take toward preserving the planet for future generations add up to make a meaningful impact.

Q: Is Tide purclean™ designed for High Efficiency machines and traditional top loading machines?
A: Yes, it provides outstanding cleaning performance in all types of machines.

Q: What is required for a product to qualify for the USDA BioPreferred designation?
A: To achieve the USDA BioPreferred seal, the product must be at least 34% bio-based. Tide Purclean™ is 65% bio-based, certified by the USDA BioPreferred program, meaning the current formulation contains nearly twice the bio-based content required for certification.

Q: Should I use Tide purclean™ for all my loads?
A: Tide purclean™ is safe for all your loads. It is packed with bio-based cleaning ingredients that will keep your whites white, colors bright, and your clothes looking and smelling clean and fresh.

Not happy with this product!

Washed my clothes in this twice and my son's socks still were dirty & smelly. Had to use a different Tide to get the smell and dirt out of the clothes. Left with 2 useless bottles of this stuff!

Great for Large loads, bad for small loads

Overall, great product. However, be wary with SMALL loads! Use very little! I washed 2 small loads, and got LOTS of suds in my machine. I had to wash them a 2nd time to get rid of the suds/residue!

Tide Response From Tide 05/31/2017

You can expect to see more suds with Tide purclean compared to our traditional formulas. To avoid this, we recommend paying close attention to the dosing guidelines listed on the back of the bottle and not exceeding the dose required for your load size. As long as you use only the recommend amount for your size of load, you should be able to wash all load sizes without any issues.

Love this Tide

I love this new Honey & Lavender Tide scent. I'm not sure about the issues with too many suds, I don't need that much to get my clothes clean. I wish there was a fabric softener that matches!
