Great product, horrible packaging

Free of scents & dyes but cleans well. But, the bottle looks like fabric softener, and "detergent" is in ridiculously tiny text. I'm tired of family members dumping it in the softener dispenser.

Excellent product

I love that Tide Free & Gentle has absolutely no fragrance - works great for me but one request - please put the dosage labelling in a bigger font or easier to read! Thank you.

Pods

I'd love to be able to get Tide Free and Gentle in a Tide Pod version. It would be faster as a new mom to grab a pod and put it in however with my new baby girl I love the fact that it's Free and Gentle.

Dye free causes stains?!

After a month knitting a darling baby sweater in white cotton I used this special "dye free" tide (which is my regular tide due to the fragrance free aspect) to wash it (alone) on gentle. You can imagine my horror when I took it out to discover it was covered in yellow splotches!I don't own a lot of white items so I'd never noticed this effect before. I'm so disappointed. So much for it being dye free. :(
