How it Works

Like regular Tide, Ultra Tide Plus A Touch of Downy contains surfactants. Surfactant molecules have two parts. One is "water loving" and the other is "water hating." The water-loving (hydrophilic) part breaks the surface tension of water. The water-hating (hydrophobic) part is attracted to oil and grease in soils, loosening and removing them from fabrics. Ultra Tide Plus A Touch of Downy is also formulated with special ingredients that provide softening benefits throughout the wash.


Safety

Ensuring the safety of our Tide line of fabric care products is a responsibility that P&G takes very seriously. Before any product can appear on store shelves, it must be demonstrated safe to use as intended. But that is only the beginning of our journey. The Earth's resources are limited and valuable, and we have an obligation to future generations to use these resources wisely.

LOVE this product - have for years.

This is the best smelling detergent on the market these days. Loved the liquid version too until the recent scent change. Works well as you'd expect Tide to do! Very happy. Please don't change this!

My towels and sheets smell wonderful!

I have been using the Tide with Downy for at least six months. I look forward to receiving the coupon inside of the box. My towels and sheets smell fresh and clean even after they have been in the linen closet for weeks.
