Tide Washing Machine Cleaner
Clean clothes start with a clean machine
Tide Washing Machine Cleaner is designed to care for your machine by removing soil, mineral, and detergent residue that may accumulate in the washer over time.
The oxygenated formula and specially designed surface-active ingredients dissolve odor-causing deposits, getting at the source of your smelly washer problem instead of just masking it. This powerful cleaner also prevents the build-up of malodor, which can be transferred to your laundry, and leaves behind a fresh scent and a clean washer.
Not for use with clothes. Use regularly to keep your machine clean.
In case of eye contact, rinse with water. If swallowed, give a glassful of water or milk, and call a physician. Keep out of reach of children.

I don't like the new and improved smell. With the older version you could smell it through the whole house. I can't smell this at all. This was the main reason I bought this product.
I used this at least twice a month. With two football players in the house, I do lots of laundry. Everything was great UNTIL they changed the scent. Now I cannot use it because I am allergic to flowery scents and that’s what they changed it to, It used to be a magnificent clean smell. I am begging Tide to either offer both scents or go back to the old scent. Or like a review said above do a free and clear. However, the original was perfect. Tide, you all have any of the old ones send them my way!! It really is a great product for my poor washer that goes non-stop.
I have used Tide Washing machine cleaner for many years and loved the cleaning abilities. Unfortunately they have taken the fresh s clean scent out of it and I really miss it . It basically deodorizer my whole house with a clean fresh smell. I wish Tide had made an unscented option instead of changing the one that worked so well. Disappointing for me. I will try and find a new product.
The old product worked great and smelled very clean. The new product makes so much suds I have to run the rinse cycle twice afterward to get it all out of my machine. Very frustrating.
I would recommend this product ONLY if the instructions stated using half the pouch, OR the pouches were smaller. I had to run four cycles to get rid of all the suds. I like the lack of smell that the old product had
Old product worked fine even with what I thought was a pleasant fragrance. The new and improved product has no odor, however it sent my machine into a suds cycle (which takes an additional 2hrs) Contacted lg: told to not use entire pouch
A: No. We don’t recommend using laundry detergent or washing machine cleaners in the dishwasher. We suggest using an automatic dishwasher detergent, like Cascade.
