I recently came across the account for Go Clean Co on Instagram and have learned the wonders that is powder Tide. I’ve honestly never been a big fan of powdered laundry detergents but after learning of the enzymes that help really break down dirt and grime, I am a convert! And not just for laundry. Actually less for laundry and more for general cleaning. Check out their account for more info! Water, bleach, Tide will forever be a staple in my home. It is amazing what it can do for almost anything!

Jackie, we're very sorry this is happening to you. We want you to love the clean and the freshness you get from our detergents. When a bad odor is left on your items, it's usually because the machine needs to be cleaned out. Proper care of your machine, which includes monthly clean outs with a Washing Machine Cleaner. It will also help if you remove clothes from the washer and dryer as soon as the cycle has been completed. You may even want to keep the door open between uses to allow the washer to air out. Please give us a call at (800) 879-8433 if we can help further or answer any questions.

Ridiculous new box....

Quality5/5

I’ve been using Tide Original he powder for years. In the past, you pull the tab around the top of the box to open, revealing a double layer of cardboard that nests when the box is closed (part of the inner layer stays with the box and the outer layer stays with the lid) - which allowed the box to seal and stay closed. The new box only has a single layer at the lid, so it doesn’t really close at all. It’s like an open beaked baby bird waiting for a worm. It is super annoying since the box is so full (which from a visual indicator of value seems awesome) it spills all over when you scoop detergent or shift the box on the counter (which is not so awesome):(. I want my old box back. I seriously considered doing a recycling bin dumpster dive to get my last box back to transfer the new soap to the old box. I didn’t, but it was a near thing. A week later I’m regretting my squeamishness....

1) Opening the box - the side strip you pull. Well the detergent spills out as the detergent level is higher then the cut line. Had to put in another container. 2) How much to use is confusing: level 1 for medium load, level three for large load and then level 5 for Full HE load. So do the 1,3 (med and large) apply to the HE front loaders? You web site says the same. Call to clarify and trhe person did not not know the answer. 3) The detergent does not mix well - Front load HE has top compartment for detergent where water flows at start that pulls the detergent into the machine. Well it does not mix well as the clothes on top get detergent residue. So should I put the detergent (say half of it) before the clothes?

The Tide Team
We're sorry you're having this experience, since a lot of thought goes into the design of our products. As well, our products go through many quality checks to ensure that they reach you in the best possible condition. We do heavily rely on feedback such as this, and we'll be sure to share your comments with the rest of our team. For HE small loads, we suggest starting from the medium dose line (line 1) and dosing as you think best fit for the size of the load. We'd be happy to share some tips to ensure that no residue is left behind! We suggest checking to see that your fabric softener doesn't accidentally spill over into the detergent part of the dispenser of the machine, and that you're adjusting the load size for your cycle choice. As well, make sure that the load isn't too large, and not too many absorbent items are present. To remove that residue, rinse your clothes under warm water right away, then soak them overnight in water. Next, re-wash your items with no laundry detergent, and at the hottest water temperature safe for the fabric. We hope this helps! Your satisfaction means everything to us, and we'd like to look into this further for you. When you have a moment, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

The Tide Team
This certainly isn't the experience we'd like a loyal Tide fan like you to have, since our products are designed to provide your items with a superior clean. We can assure that our products shouldn't cause any bleaching if the items were washed according to the care instructions, and the instructions on the package were followed. As well, no detergents on the market can completely remove color, so this color loss was most likely caused by bleach. If you used bleach in a previous load, some may have remained in the washer. Even if you don't use bleach, other products in your home contain bleaching agents, such as certain toothpastes, acne treatments, and hair dyes. Your satisfaction means everything to us, so we'd be happy to look into this further for you and see how we can best help! When you have a moment, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

60 y/o fondly remembers helping Mom (who only used Tide) with the wash because I loved the smell of the clean laundry so much. The fresh smell began to fade in the late 90s, but it is now g.o.n.e. Worse yet, I realized about 5 years ago my whites were turning gray so I had to start using additives to get my whites white and towels fresh-smelling; regardless of temp, and new machine!! What happened?! I've tried buying from various stores thinking Costco got B grade or something, but there is no difference. I've been dragging my feet not wanting to change, but the quality has not kept up with the price so it is time to cut loose. If I have to use additives, I may as well buy cheaper detergent. Strange as it sounds, I feel like I'm leaving an old friend. Tide has been part of my life for a long time. Sad!

In my experience, tide powder is the best. The only use I have for the liquid, is to pretreat oily spots. So, pods are out. I only wish there were single usage packaging. Husband and grandkids, you know... I DO, repackage my powder into big ziplock bags, which I then place in the original carton. Less lumpy that way. AND, I measure out exactly how much is meant by the lines in the stupid scoops. (It differs by The “type” of tide... sigh). I then use a two tablespoon scoop to measure out the correct amount for my loads. OTHERWISE, I use too much, and it doesn’t rinse out properly. Even with all of that finagling, Tide powder is still (hands down) the best at cleaning my laundry!

I use cloth diapers for my son since he was 2 months old. After some trial and error with other detergents, I decided to try Tide.

We're very sorry you had that experience with our Tide Original Powder. This is not something we expect to happen, but we have some tips that should restore your clothing to excellent condition. Rinse the stained fabric under warm water immediately. Soak the garments overnight in water. Re-wash the affected garment again in your washing machine with NO laundry detergent. Wash at the highest temperature permitted by the care label. Always follow care label instructions for suggested water temperature. To keep this from happening, make sure you don't over dose the laundry detergent or overload the washer. If you have any questions, give us a call at (800) 879-8433. We're here to help.

It's like stepping into an 80s nightclub -- the overwhelming perfume will make your eyes water. I use the liquid HE detergent, always Original Scent, and didn't realize the scent had been changed.

Don't slap an Original label on something you've changed. At LEAST say "New Scent" on the bottle!

Hi there! We have included a new and improved scent in Tide Original that our research indicates consumers prefer. We do not always highlight formula improvements on the package.

The fact that Tide (P&G) updated the scent in this product is enough to be troubling all by itself! But adding insult to injury by not communicating this with your consumers is just poor business! The fact that the box still says "ORIGINAL SCENT" when it's not is VERY misleading. I called Tide (P&G) today and requested a refund for this product. I would have brought it back to the store, but I already emptied it into the plastic detergent bin we keep in the laundry room and tossed the box. They are issuing a prepaid Visa card in the full amount. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that they are promoting this product as the "original scent" when it's not. I encourage everyone else who is not happy with this scent change to call in (1-800-879-8433) and get a refund, too!

Sickening new smell
StarStarStarStarStar1/5

We have used Tide and have been delighted with it for OVER 40 years. This week we opened another box powered HE Tide. Within a minute after unzipping the top, the OVERWHELMING SMELL hit the room. The lid was not even lifted up. We set the box in another room. The smell migrated to the whole living area. The lid was still closed. Outside it went then back to WalMart. No receipt but they graciously refunded us. Why do major companies make such changes? It wasn't a small amount of scent, it was a huge amount. What if we had washed valued clothes in this? Would even the original Tide clean that smell out? We emailed the company but never heard back. Before returning the box, we carefully compared all six sides of both boxes and there was no indication Tide was about to loose our business. If anyone knows of a power, HE that can easily be found with NO smell and reasonable cleaning power, we would like to hear rsmith@xmission.com

After having to switch from Gain, my all-time favorite detergent, I decided to give Tide Original a go, since I've always used it in the past and loved it, but usually only buy it on sale. I opened this box and quickly became disgusted. What is this overly perfume-ridden odor housed in this box? Because it surely is not Original Tide. Along with that, I still have to add a scoop of booster or Oxi to the wash and allow the clothes to soak for 30 mins or so to get even half-decent results. What happened to detergents working just fine without the need of "boosters" and additives? Don't change something if it's not broken. Leave what works alone and instead focus your attention on the things that need improvement, one of which now is this terrible smell you pass off as the "original".

I purchase Tide powder at Costco and just purchased a new box a few weeks ago. I thought maybe it was just me noticing something different about the smell after the first load.

Horrible might be too strong a word, but the fragrance is overwhelming and unappealing.

Ultra Tide HE Powder Residue
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

Just recently purchased a new GE top load HE washer, as well as a box of the Ultra Tide HE Powder. With each load that I have washed so far with the Tide powder detergent, I have had some sort of white residue left on the item being washed, in blotches or spots. The extra rinse feature was also on. To make sure it wasn't the washer I re-ran each load individually with Tide HE with Acti-Lift liquid and the residue was gone. Mind you that both detergents are being added through the HE detergent dispenser, as well as the same wash settings being used, that also goes for wash water temperature at warm water for the wash cycle or above. Please reply with help. Could I exchange the powder with you for the liquid that seems to work?

Works great!
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

Tide is the perfect detergent for any washer and I highly recommend that you buy it. It does its job, no obnoxious fumes, and it gets my clothes clean. I have an Maytag bravos HE washer. But, if you have an HE washer, I recommend you buy Tide liquid, because sometimes the powder gets stuck in the dispenser drawer. So if you get tide for an HE, I recommend liquid, or pour the powder into the drum instead of the dispensers.

Deceptive product.
StarStarStarStarStar2/5

Question: Why is the new scoop so short? Answer: Greed. I note some of the video reviews show people measuring out a scoop of Ultra Tide powder. And, they say they are not sure which line to use so they use a full scoop. I’ll bet there are a lot of people out there who do the same or at least use a little more than recommended because they can’t read the scoop so well. I attempted to measure the volume of the scoop so I could find an alternate that is easier to use. (Yes I am an engineer.) Since getting the detergent in the scoop level on any line is so difficult, I used water. Level 1 (medium loads) = 2 oz Level 2 (large loads) = 2.5 oz Level 3 (heavy soiled) = 4 oz A full scoop = 5 oz. If the scoop was taller and narrower, there would be much more distance between the 3 lines and you could make a more accurate measurement. If Pocter & Gamble’s goal was to help customers make an accurate measurement, the scoop would be tall and narrow. If their goal was to sell more detergent, the scoop would be short and wide. Guess which they chose? To the ladies in the videos, you are using more than twice as much detergent as recommended. That is why your videos are on the web site. P&G stock holders thank you. For the rest of us, I recommend buying a 4 ounce measuring cup and marking the levels with a sharpie. The cup will pay for itself in savings several times over on your first box.

I have used liquid Tide for over 20 yrs. & was always happy with it. I bought my 1st HE machine about 10 yrs. ago & replaced it about 3 yrs. ago. I always used liquid Tide HE in it but my towels, especially, had a funny odor to them. I cleaned my washer each month as instructed by my serviceman but the smell was always there. I would eventually get rid of them & buy new. Then about a year ago I read that it could be caused by the liquid detergent & to try the Tide HE powder. After the 1st load the towels I was about to get rid of smelled fresh again!!! I never went back!! I LOVE TIDE HE DETERGENT!!!! But like some others I am having a hard time finding it.

There is a huge community of cloth diapering moms who are loyal original Tide users and now very disappointed Ultra Tide users. I'm one of those dissatisfied moms.

I'm sorry you feel the Tide detergent isn’t cleaning well. Please be assured all our laundry detergents are designed to provide good overall cleaning. In addition, they all contain enzymes which help remove protein soils.Since powders and liquids have different performance strengths, I’d like to share some tips with you. If you have clay or mud type of soil, then try our powders as they work best on this type of stain. For greasy, oily solids liquid is the best. For best results: • Follow care tag instructions, using the hottest water safe for the fabric. • Sort clothes properly grouping similar colors and fabrics. • Don't overload the washer so clothes can circulate freely. • Use the recommended amount of detergent for average water hardness, a little more in very hard water, a little less in very soft water. • Use gentle cycles only when care instructions recommend it. Hope this helps!

My laundry used to have a faint moldy smell after being washed. I tried everything from cleaning tablets to using bleach with the clean cycle. Nothing worked. Then I tried the Tide HE Powder Detergent and the smell practically vanished with the first load! Tide powder HE works 100% better than liquid HE for me. The clothes smell just like they used to with the regular washer I had and they actually feel cleaner. The only problem is that the powder formula is hard to find and the store I buy it from only carries regular scent. Please send and make more powder HE scents and make bigger packages! Thanks!

Repeated blue stains
StarStarStarStarStar1/5

The new concentrated powder seems to be causing the blue dye in our clothes (even the old ones) to run and stain other clothes repeatedly. Never had this problem before with Tide HE powder. I have a front loading machine and use the correct amount in cold water. What's wrong?

06/29/2011
The Tide Team
I'm sorry you had stains. What you’re describing is unusual and I’m sharing your comments with the rest of the team. Stains may occur if the colorant in the product came into direct contact with wet fabric. This usually happens when wash water is too cold (below 60 degrees F) and product is not properly dissolved and/or placed directly on top of clothing. Please be assured, these stains are NOT permanent. The dyes in our products are water soluble and will be removed by rewashing in hottest water safe for fabric with recommended amount of same detergent. At times, you may need more than one rewashing to completely remove. If you have further questions feel free to call us at (800) 879-8433. Thanks!
