Smell too intense

Bonjour, I felt the machine was cleaner but the result less great than with your competitor. The smell like other reviews is too strong. I was surprise that it was still in my home for soo long. If you could make this product without the strong scent. Would be much better, I will definitely go back purchasing the other product.

Tide scent is too much for me

I was surprised as to how strong the scent of the cleaner is. Not sure which is more offensive. A smelly washing machine or this product. Takes days for the strong scent to leave my home. Is there no other way to remove odor than to mask it with another!. The product itself is great. Just remove the strong scent.

Tide Response From Tide 11/17/2015

We're sorry to hear you found the scent from Tide Washing Machine Cleaner's too strong and offensive, bennyb. The scent is designed to be long-lasting but not to overwhelm the senses and will usually last for 30 minutes to several hours. Turning on a fan or opening a window will help diminish the scent. Please know, This isn't the experience we'd like you to have and we'd like to help further. Please give us a call when you're available at 1-877-256-3265.

Won't use again

Smell is too offensive, much more offensive than your competitors with not much difference in price. In this day and age you should be able to come up with a better product. We all live in enclosed environments and this smell permeates everything,

We’re very sorry you’re having this experience with our washing machine cleaner. The scent is designed to be long lasting but not overwhelming. It usually should only last for a few hours. We always recommend opening a window to help diminish the scent. This isn’t the experience we want you to have and we want to make it right. Please give us a call when you’re able at 1-855-236-3353.

Worked perfectly

I used the cleaner as instructed in my washing machine's use and care guide. I removed the "main wash - liquid only" cup from the dispenser before adding the cleaner. I ran the Clean Washer cycle and followed with a Rinse cycle. The result - the washing machine is odour free - there was no residue left in the dispenser - a coating that had developed on the inside of the door glass due to my use of hard water was cleared, leaving the glass sparkling clean - a discolouration on the door gasket was removed. The first load of laundry washed following the cleaning was clean, with no hint of discolouration, and was free of the odour that accompanies use of the cleaner. One word of advice - use of the cleaner is accompanied by a pungent odour, turn on your exhaust fan and close the laundry room door to prevent the smell permeating your house.
