Product Detail

Washers today use less water, which can leave behind residues in your machine, including areas you can’t see, like the back of the tub, hoses, drain, etc. These residues can lead to a build up of odor, which can be transferred to your laundry.

Tide Washing Machine Cleaner, a unique detergent for cleaning washing machines, penetrates and lifts away residues and deposits from the surfaces in your washer with its specially designed surface active ingredients.

  • Freshens washer, leaving behind a fresh, clean scent.
  • Works on both high efficiency and non-high efficiency machines.
  • Not for use with clothes.
