Pods not dissolving in cold water

Value2/5
Quality1/5

My free and clear pods are not dissolving in cold water. When i take my small load of laundry out of dryer pieces of clothing stuck together like they are glued with weird silicone like glue. Good news is that soaking the clothing in a ton of hot water unglues clothes. When in wore clothing from the same cycle that did not appear to have glue like residue i developed a contact dermatitis. My only know allergy is tea-tree oil. I have not found this listed in the ingredients. I am tring to determine if i am allergic to any of the ingredients listed.

We're sorry you had this experience, and we hope that you're feeling better. Since safety is our top priority, we can assure you that all of our products have been thoroughly evaluated to be safe when used as directed. You can learn more about the ingredients we use by searching for our products on http://spr.ly/6424Hq0yn. Our Tide PODS™are designed to dissolve completely when in contact with water, so if they’re unable to dissolve properly, this may be because they don’t have access to enough water. We'd like to share some tips to ensure that you get the best results. We suggest making sure the load isn’t too large, not many absorbent items are present, and that the PODS™ are always put into the machine first, before the clothes. For removing any residue, we recommend soaking your clothes overnight in water, and then re-washing the items in your washing machine with no laundry detergent, and at the highest temperature permitted by the care label. We'd like to gather some more details for our Safety Team, so please give us a call at (800) 879-8433 when you have a moment.

Leaves residue all over clothes!

I am very disappointed with Tide Free and Gentle Pods! They continually leave a white residue all over my clothes which requires me to re-rinse them in warm water to get the marks out!! I will not buy these again!

This certainly isn't the experience we want for you, so we're disappointed to hear this! Quality is super important to us, and our team has done lots of testing to make sure the PODS™ are easy to use, so this certainly isn't what we expect. We'd like to learn more about this to see how we can help, if you'll give us a call at: (800) 879-8433 when you get a chance! - The Tide Team

Very satisfied with the product. But when container opened for the first time, all the pods were stuck together and if you tried to separate them they break. Ending up using more than recommended therefore not a good deal.

11/11/2020
The Tide Team
We're glad you enjoy using PODS, and we're sorry to hear you had this experience. If two of them are stuck together, we do not recommend trying to pull them apart, instead, you can place both of them in the washing machine together. To prevent them from sticking together in the future, we suggest placing the container in a dry, room temperature environment and keeping the container tightly closed between uses. We hope this helps, and if you have any questions, we're only a phone call away at 1-800-879-8433, and we'd be happy to help.

We understand your frustration. Our PODS™ should always dissolve fully, leaving your clothes looking great. Because the casing and detergent is water-soluble, soaking those affected items overnight, then rewashing in the hottest water safe for the fabric should restore them. For best results the first time around, always be sure to add your PODS™ to the drum of your machine before adding the laundry. We'd be more than happy help you even further, so please call us at (800) 879-8433 when you can.

does not totally disintegrate in the washer
StarStarStarStarStar1/5

The last package I got had pods in it that would not totally dissolve/disintegrate in the washer. The covers of the pods collected in the door of the top loader washer I have,

04/07/2019
The Tide Team
While we're sorry to hear you've had some difficulties with your PODS™, we're here to help! On a small number of machines, the size of the gap between the washing machine door and the rubber seal means that the PODS™ can become trapped. The outside casing (film) of the empty PODS™ can become stuck to the door/seal of the washing machine. Luckily, this can be prevented by making sure to not overload your washer and adding the PODS™ to the drum of your machine before you add your clothes. If you do find residue, you can remove it easily with a soft damp cloth using mild soap and water. We'd be happy to answer any questions that you may have, so always feel free to give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

The Tide Team
This definitely isn't the fresh experience we expect from our Free & Gentle PODS™! They have no added fragrance, and we can assure you that our detergents won't cause bad smells. If your freshly-washed laundry comes out smelling badly, it may be due to odor causing residues in your washing machine. To freshen up your machine, we suggest giving our Tide Washing Machine cleaner a try. We'd love for you to give us another chance with this tip in mind! We'd love to help you even further, just give us a call at (800) 879-8433 when you can.

We're here to help, Preson! While we did change our formula in 2017 to ensure that our PODS™ give the best clean ever, they should still dissolve and leave your clothes spotless like before. Please always make sure that you're putting your PODS™ in the drum of the washer before adding your clothes and make sure to leave enough space so that the PODS™ are exposed to water for the proper amount of time! If you find any residue, simply soak the affected garment overnight and then rewash it with no detergent on the hottest cycle recommended by its care tag. If you have any questions, always feel free to give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Cleans well and Gentle on my sensitive skin!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I have been using Tide Detergent Pods in the Gentle & Free formula for a month now and I am very happy with this product. I am 23 weeks pregnant now and I have been very sensitive to lots of products with harsh chemicals. So I was quite excited to try this out and see how well it would do on cleaning my clothes but also if it would be gentle enough for my skin. I have had nothing but positive experience all month long. I love that this is free of perfumes and dyes and also hypoallergenic. These Tide pods have done a really good job at cleaning my clothes and it always dissolved easily, I love how convient the product is in a pod. I am also planning on using this for my babies clothes, when she arrives. So this will be a great overall laundry detergent for the family. I recommend this to anyone looking for a gentle laundry detergent or has anyone in their family with sensitive skin. I have had a positive experience using this product, but with any product it is always important to test if the product will work for you. This is something I am 100% going to be repurchasing in the near future.

I only had to use one pod for a fairly large load of laundry as well which is awesome and the bag lasts forever. I love that the detergent is gentle especially for using it on my babies clothing. I recommend these for sure especially if you have little babies with tender skin. #sparklingclean

One of my kids was allergic to all things Tide, so I had stopped using it. Out of habit for other products, I never went back to it. Now that my kids are grown, I am able to use the product again. I found that my clothes washed very well, and stains seemed to be eliminated. The POD dissolved quickly, even in the cold water that I use. I don't really have an opinion on it's ability to colour protect. I have not noticed either way, and since I own many articles of clothing, I don't wash the same items as frequently as some people may. The PODS left no residue on the clothes and all suds were dissolved. Overall, I like the product. The two things that I didn't much like, was that opening the packaging was difficult, and the PODS were flimsy and delicate. I was concerned that I was going to puncture them, just handling them.

Why I like the new Tide
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

This product is right for anyone who want a compact easy travel every day product. It wasn't too overwhelming with smell but still was a very powerful cleaning soap and made my clothes very clean and scent free. I would definitely buy this Tide again. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.

Best in warm water
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

Those with skin or fragrance sensitivities should find that Tide free & gentle acceptable. It is suggested to place 1 pod in the washer before the clothes for a small load, 2 for a medium load, and 3 for a large load. I found 1 was enough.regardless of how the load size in my front load washer. However, my laundry was not heavily soiled. It took me a few times to remember to put the pod in before the clothes. Con: The pod didn' t disolve completely in cold water so the pod stuck to the clothes.

Not for me
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

I like the product and idea of it. Unfortunately for me they didn't work the best. They didn't fully dissolve in my machine which resulted in particles being stuck on my clothing still. I believe if I didn't have a front load machine they would've worked better. For that reason I would still recommend tgem to others.

Works great!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I must say after trying the Tide Free and Gentle pods I am very impressed. It works as well as you expect a Tide product to work and without all the perfumes or dyes. I had a perfect test the day it showed up in my mailbox, my youngest son had a nose bleed during the night and I figured the stain it caused would never come out. I threw the bedding in the washer with a pod and the stain was gone! It even got most of an older stain (same type) from a month ago almost all the way out. I love that there is no fragrance to make me sneeze.

Great detergent for baby items
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I was happy to try the Tide Free & Gentle clothes as I am trying to wash all of our new baby items before our new baby arrives. We use the regular pods for our own laundry but needed something scent free and more sensitive for a newborn. These pods are so easy to use since you just throw them in the laundry machine with no mess or waste. The only thing that holds me back is that the cost can be higher than other products if we don't have a coupon or a sale. Otherwise, this is a great product.

Very Surprised . . . .
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I was surprised how my clothes came out actually. I loved the smell too and it is great to use at this time of year with the colder weather and it won't irritate your skin at all. The fact you can use in all water temperatures is great too. I did notice my whites were a little whiter as well and my colors were brighter too. I am telling all my friends about this one for sure. Thank you.

Tide Free & Gentle Pods
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

This product is great if you are looking for a more natural product. We currently have a baby in the household and felt good using this for it being more gentle than other laundry products. It is mess free and dissolves completely. The only con was you needed to use more than one pod for a full size load of laundry which seemed like it would bring the cost up.

Very Effective Laundry Pacs
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

The Tide PODS 3-in1 laundry pack is very easy to use. You don't have to worry about spilling any liquid or powder detergent. The laundry pacs are easy to handle and not messy. The pacs are effective in removing tough stains. The product can be used by all. The child-guard zipper is effective in preventing your child from opening the package. Overall, this is an excellent product for all your laundry needs.

Child safety does not work
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

It started off bad. Supposedly this product has a child safety lock but I find the sealing very awkward and was unable to put it in the lock position. Definitely need to keep out of the reach of children. The pods themselves are slimey to the touch. Pods themselves worked ok in terms of cleaning power.

Multipurpose Laundry
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

This product is a perfect solution to multiload laundry. We are using these pods for any laundry load that includes adult and baby articles. We are also using them with cold water. The pods are convenient to use (once you get through the original seal on the package). Throw them in and forget about it. We did experience some residue on our clothing using a top loader, but nothing major and I would still recommend for convenience.

Extremely convenient and scent free !
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

Perfect for anyone who suffers from allergies or who is sensitive to smells ! My husband has terrible fragrance induced allergies and most laundry detergents give him extremely itchy eyes and nose. I've tried other scent free laundry products and I just wasn't happy with how they failed to clean our clothes properly. This product is the whole package ! Cleans our clothes thoroughly and leaves them soft and fresh ! I like how it works well in our HE washer too! The pods are extremely convenient to just throw into the washer, so it works well for me :)

Excellent cleaning for sensitive skin
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

Tide PODS free & gentle packaging provides clear, easy instructions for their use depending on the size of your laundry load. You get excellent cleaning and stain removal from this member of the Tide family. I have high expectations for Tide laundry products and Tide PODS free & gentle did not disappoint. What is unique about this product is it is free of perfumes and dyes. They did not irritate the skin of a family member with sensitive skin. That alone makes Tide PODS free & gentle the laundry product to use for us. Having the bonus of the famous Tide cleaning ability seals the deal.

Powerful Pod!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I recently had the opportunity to try Tide Pods Free and Gentle. I have never tried Pod detergent before, as I always use cold water, and I wasn't sure how well the Pod would dissolve. I was also a little apprehensive about the fact that it was perfume free. Would my clothes clean properly, would they smell fresh and clean? I was pleasantly surprised to pull my clothing from the washing machine and found them to be better than expected. Not only was the clothing stain free and clean, but I realized that you don't need perfume and scent to make your clothes smell fresh. I would highly recommend this to anyone, whether they suffer from sensitive skin or not. Very nice product. Does a great job! Love that it is HE compatible, great for front or top load washers, and performs well in hot and cold water

Pods are very convenient to use. They have a refreshing fragrance and definitely remove tough stains. The reference instructions for number of pods to use could be a tad more visible. Packaging is great as it takes up minimal space when compared to older liquids products, also way less messy to use. Fragrance is refreshing, yet not over bearing

I was really impressed with Tide PODS Free & Gentle laundry pacs. This detergent was just as effective in cleaning our laundry as regular Tide while being a great product for without the dyes and perfumes of most other detergents.

Pleasantly surprised at the strength of these pods
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I usually use scented laundry pods or laundry detergent, the stronger smelling, the better!!!! I used the ride free and gentle pods and was afraid of having no scent at all. I used some of the scented pellets with the pods, that's all and there was just enough scent for me. I was very surprised. I was also surprised at how clean my clothes felt and they were soft as well. The myth that something soft and gentle can't be strong has been broken. I would definitely buy these again but need a few scented beads to go with it.

Unscented is the way to go

I found this product very helpful for us. Almost everything has a scent to it now but this free and gentle does not. So if i want to use scent boosters in my wash I can now and just so long as my dryer sheets are unscented, I will get the full effect of my scent boosters. I use all kinds of scent boosters so it's nice to be able to mix it up every wash if I like. tyvm

Great cleaning product without harsh scents or dye
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

The first thing I noticed about the Gentle and Free Tide Pods is the child-lock zipper. It opens very easily but can be zipped back and locked in. this is super convenient, even for those without children. These Tide Pods are 3-in-1 and they really do work the way they said. I found my clothes washed up just the same as always but after a week of daily washing of my work clothes, my colours weren't running the way they do with other protects. I was very impressed. I do have sensitive skin at times from overtly fragrance detergents so I was pleased to see these were dye and scent free. I am truly impressed with the quality. Any small stains I had came out in the first wash without treating them first. It was wonderful and a great time saver. The only negative issue I had was a couple of my Tide Pods stuck together in the bag. There is no way to pull them apart without one (or both) exploding everywhere. One or two loads had an extra pod in there because of that but overall, it seemed fine. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Another great Tide product
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I was excited to try Tide Detergent Liquid Pods, Free and Gentle, as I prefer unscented laundry soap due to allergies and asthma. I normally use the Unscented Tide Powder, but was happy to try something a lot less messy! It was great to just grab a pod or 2 and toss them into my front loader before adding my laundry and turning it on. It did a great job at cleaning the clothes, as Tide products always do. The childproof opening system was tricky at first, but once I got the hang of it it was simple to open and close. That's a great feature that I haven't seen on any other pods for either washing machines of dishwashers. It would be a great product to travel with, or to keep in a small apartment or dorm room.

I have used Tide since starting my massage practice more than a decade ago. I recently switched to Free and Clean because of clients with sensitive skin.

We're sorry to hear that the sheets are still somewhat oily. With the oil you use for your profession, we would recommend increasing the dosage used when cleaning the sheets.

Issue with Tide Pods
StarStarStarStarStar2/5

I started using Tide Free and Gentle Pods last year and was very impressed with them. I never had an issue til this last time I purchased them. They are apparently not dissolving even in hot water and are sticking to my bed sheets and clothing. It is a nuisance to have to soak clothing and bedding after you have just washed them again in hot water. I don't know why all of a sudden they would do this. Half the container has done this! Do they go bad?

Detergent pods
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I have been using these pods for a couple of weeks now. I have had great results until recently. I add the pod to an empty, front loading washing machine and then add the clothes. The machine has not been overloaded. Today I noticed, on an article of navy blue clothing, a white, hard plastic like material. I don't know how I will get this off, the clothing is soaking in water as we speak. I am not sure if I want to take a chance with this happening to another piece of clothing.

05/10/2016
Occasional issue, but overall great product.
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

We have been using this product since it came out. I have an allergy to original tide and one of my children has eczema. We have found that this product is wonderful. We have only had 2 incidents of pods not fully dissolving in the wash and I think that was due to over filling or it wasn't put into an empty drum (both times my oldest son was doing the laundry). We always wash in cold water except for deep clean days. I will keep using this product, but as a previous poster said refill bags may be better than having to buy the whole plastic container to get the amount of pods.

Too much residue
StarStarStarStarStar2/5

Although these work ok from a cleaning stand point I find that in cold water the pods don't fully dissolve and leave a residue noticeable on blacks especially. I've had to resort to dissolving them in hot water first to prevent it. I will probably just switch back to liquid when these are done.

Still My Favorite Brand To Use
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I have no objections with this product. It is easy to use. You just throw it in. Very handy on towels, etc.

amazing product
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I love tide pods free and gentle, this is a wonderful product, and my entire family has been using this product now, and we will never change it! I have recommended this product as well to other friends and family, and they also agree, its wonderful! thank you!

Better than I expected
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I have always bought the liquid tide and then i took a chance and tried a pod. They clean the clothes well and i have had no sign of stains etc on the clothes as others have said. In fact I find that somehow the clothes look cleaner. I will continue to buy the pods and use Tide. Tide is the better of all the laundry detergents

It is a wonderful concept
StarStarStarStarStar2/5

Hi, I have been a faithful tide user for years, first the powder then the liquid and then the pods. I found them extremely useful for my kids when they started to do their laundry because they are proportioned and no extra detergent was going into the washer. Recently we bought a front loading machine and I found the plastic from my pods were sticking to my laundry. I did find out this has also happened to my friends with the front loading he machines. I've gone back to using the liquid. If you could somehow work out the kinks in the plastic from the pods dissolving properly I would most definitely go back to using them. Thanks

Hello, Bren. We’re sorry you’re having this experience with our PODS® in your new front loader. They are designed to work in all machines. As long as the POD® is placed directly into the drum first before adding the clothing this should not be happening. The good news is the residue is removable by soaking the item in the hottest water temperature safe for that fabric for about an hour or longer and then rewashing according to the care tag label instructions. We value your loyalty to Tide and we’d like to help further. Please give us a call at 1.855.236.3353 when you have a moment.<!--[if ReviewResponse]><![endif]-->

No so great for HE Machines
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I have always loved Tide Free & Gentle pods and found they worked great until I bought a new front load HE machine. I find they don't dissolve as well as the did in my old machine. I tried hot water, smaller loads and everything else I could think of. I really miss the ease of use of the products. I will continue to purchase them to take with us to the cottage and on holidays but they won't be used at home.

StarStarStarStarStar4/5

Love Tide products. I purchased a new washer and have found the pods do not dissolve well. I have found the pod gel covers in my dryer, also found some of my clothes covered with a white soap film that at times has not come out. I believe there is too much soap in the pods and not enough water in the newer machines. I have resorted back to the liquid and still love my Tide.

Love Tide Pods
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

Have been using the pods for almost a year now in my front load washing machine. I absolutely love them, no more mess on the floor from the drips of the liquid dispenser. I have never had an issue and sometimes when I have a larger load I use two pods, I do wash with warm water most of the time. Would like to see the refill bags of pods cheaper than the plastic tubs, something more environmently friendly.

pods not dissolving
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I have had problems with the pods not dissolving . I put them in first and usually use warm water . i find it does this mostly with towels ,sheets,and blankets . thinking not enough movement for them to dissolve maybe.

12/19/2015
a tad dissappointed.
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

I bought these for my husband who travels for work easy for him to carry on the jobs...cleaned his heavy duty work clothes pretty good and yet l found residue when l used them for my sheets and blankets...and like little bits of plastic....with the work clothes we never noticed but the linen we did...good for pack for travelling when you need to use the hotel washers or laundromatts....and that is what we save them for not for our household good linens and bedding...and my private clothing as l have a skin issue and the residue makes me a bit uncomfortable to use....but good for travelling for heavy duty work clothes..

We're sorry your skin was irritated, CJMM, and we hope you're feeling better! Tide Pods should dissolve fully as long as they're put in the washer drum before the laundry and the machine isn't overloaded. Please know, this isn't the experience we'd like you to have and we'd like to gather more information for our Health and Safety Team. At your earliest convenience please give us a call at 1-877-256-3265 and we'll be happy to help.<!--[if ReviewResponse]><![endif]-->

Pods don't disolve completely
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

I have tried the pods and they do leave a residue though I don't remember if I placed them in drum first. Otherwise works ok. Too bad as it has been my family detergent for ages.

12/17/2015
The Tide Team
Oh no. We’re sorry a longtime fan of Tide has had this experience with our PODS®. As long as the POD® is placed into the drum first before the garments and the machine is not overloaded allowing the POD® to float freely and dissolve properly this should not be happening. The good news is the residue is not permanent and will come off when you soak the item in the hottest water temperature safe for that fabric for about an hour or longer. We appreciate you taking the time to bring this to our attention and we’d like to help further.

Great product, wrong packaging
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

I have used tide free for many years and loved the pods before I got a new front load washer. Now they don't dissolve properly and have stained some sheets, which will not come out no matter what I do. I have switched back to the liquid tide free detergent.

12/17/2015
The Tide Team
This isn't what we'd expect from Tide PODS® since they're HE compatible, Pattie. As long as the PODS® is placed in the back of the washer drum before adding the laundry, it should dissolve fully.

Pods not dissolving
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

I have had the same problem with the pods not dissolving when I use them in the front loading washer, have been putting them in the soap dispenser .had to rescue2 new blouses by soaking and rewashing was totally not impressed .the plastic sticks to the cloth like glue .this has only been happening this year what has been changed? As I have been using the pods since they came on the market and had no problems before ..Am very satisfied with tide free and gentle otherwise as have allergies to scented products .thank you .

Love the convenience
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I love that the pods are fragrance free as my husband has sensitivity to chemicals and fragrance. I've been using pods for some time now, but just switched to the Free and Gentle ones. Great product

12/17/2015
Better for family!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

I purchased these free and gentle pods because of my kids and my own sensitive skin conditions. I don't know about these other reviews but I found when used properly (I put the pods in first, start the water, then put in the laundry while the water is running) it worked fantastic! First, I don't have any residue on any of my clothes anymore, there's a noticeable difference in preventing skin rashes, and it cleans the clothes (even my messy kids!) wonderfully! I've been using the pods for about 3 months now and I have an older top loading machine, so I'm not sure how well it would work on a front loader. I use 1 pod for small-medium loads and 2 pods for large-xlarge loads. Thank you Tide!

Tide pods
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I really like the pods, they are convient and easy to use, yes I have had problems with the pods not dissolving all the way but not all the time. But they make the laundry smell clean and look clean, I really like this product.

12/17/2015
No longer a problem
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

First of all , I love the PODS concept. Convenient and easy to use. When I first started to use them there was product residue on the clothes, however, after making sure to place the pod in an empty drum, load the clothes loosely and use the right water temperature, the problem was resolved.

12/17/2015
Great product
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

We have been using Tide Free & Gentle Pods for some time now. Used Tide Free & Gentle liquid before that. A Family member is very sensitive to perfumes, so the whole family uses Free & Gentle. We have had no issues with the Pods and enjoy the convenience of tossing the pod into the machine as we turn on the water. Keep up the good work of developing "Free & Gentle" items so those of us with perfume issues have good products to use.

12/17/2015
So clean and refreshing
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

Great experience with new Tide Pods. Love the convenience - just throw into my wash and let them do their job. No mess. No residue afterwards. No chalky gunk left in my washing machine either! I will use these again and again. Perfect for cold and hot water washes. Wonderful smell too!

12/17/2015
Trying It Out
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

I have finished the 5th laundry trying out the Tide PODS Free & Gentle. I like the convenience and the apparent lack of left-over soap in the clothes. However, I am finding that the cover of the pod is not disintegrating; instead I am finding hard "fused" portions on items placed in the dryer. Fortunately my spouse tried placing those portions under running water which seemed to disintegrate the plastic, but it means that the items have to be hung to dry (again) - rather annoying. Otherwise, the PODS do seem to be fragrance free and easy to use.

The Tide Team
We're sorry your Tide PODS® didn't dissolve fully and left residue behind, Donna. This should not be happening if the PODS® are placed into the drum of the washer before adding the clothes and the machine is not overloaded. As you noticed, the residue will dissolve entirely when soaked in the hottest water safe for that fabric. This isn't the experience we'd like you to have and we'd like to help further.

Seemed great at first
StarStarStarStarStar2/5

My boyfriend and I started buying these tide pods because of its convenience and as we both have allergies and can only use tide products. At first they seemed great but I started to notice that the cover of the pod was not disintegrating, leaving a melted plastic-like content on my sheets and towels along with staining. I was unable to get rid of this and had to throw out a lot of my items. Very disappointing

Oh no, we’re sorry you and your boyfriend had this experience while using our PODS®.

better smell cleaner stains
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These little pods are so strong. Only one per a load and great for sensative skin.My husband clothes are always smelling of sweat and dirt because of his job. These helped lift the stains as well as the smell . Especially the underarm area which tends to get stand due to deodorant and sweat. I really like these alot.

worked very well
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I work in a restaurant and my clothes always have a strong odor after I get off and even after they have been washed it still lingers. I used this instead of my normal detergent and I thought that it seemed to help with the smell and they even seemed cleaner. I am sure as I continue to use this I will probably see an increase in how clean they feel over time. I would definitely recommend it to someone that has a sensitivity to products with smells. A lot of time I break out and itch with other products and I didn't have that problem with this product. I am going to make sure I recommend this whenever this topic comes up.

Tide Pods Free & Gentle lives up to the name
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think Tide Pods Free & Gentle are a great way to do laundry. My family is very sensitive and try to stay away from harsh chemicals. I like that our clothes were clean and fresh after using Tide Pods. We are able to obtain clean laundry without harsh irritants or overwhelming scents.

09/05/2015
I love Tide Free & Gentle Pods!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I loved my free sample packs of Tide Free & Gentle Pods. The first load I used them on had a bunch of bright stained clothes from my daughter. To my amazement when I opened the washer and checked the clothes before putting them into the dryer all the stains were gone. I have been using Oxi-Clean before and sometimes it would burn holes in my clothes or burn my fingers off! I loved that Tide Free & Gentle Pods were tough on stains and easy on skin! I also loved the smell of my clothes when I removed them from the warm dryer because they smelled so clean and were bright not dull in color! Tide Free & Gentle Pods saved me a lot of extra trouble and all I had to do was toss a pod into the washer.

09/05/2015
All In One!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am in love with this new Tide Pods Free & Gentle detergent. It works so good on everyone's clothes in the house. It makes our clothes so soft and it really gets them so much whiter and brighter then the other detergent's that we have used in the past. So easy to use,just toss in the washer and forget about it, once you go back to get them out they are ready to go in the dryer,nothing else is needed! Now I have more time to do other things that I enjoy!

Gentle on my sensitive skin
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am absolutely pleased with Tide PODS free and gentle. I was sent samples to try from BzzAgent. A detergent that will clean your clothes without the harsh ingredients. It is fragrance-free so it smells like nothing but the fact that it has none of those irritating ingredients, it's plus for me and my sensitive skin. I have recommended and will continue to recommend this product.

Sensitive on skin tough on stains
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was skeptical at first at using the Tide PODS Free and Gentle simply because I did not have a lot of experience with pods. I always thought they looked neat but worried that I either wouldn't do it right or they wouldn't work. They are really easy to use, just put in the wash before putting the clothes in. No more hassel of measuring out liquid or any residue to clean up. I really liked that there wasn't an overpowering scent to the pod. Sometimes liquid detergent just smells really strong and if you accidently overpower your sheets smell for weeks. Not a problem with the pod. I also liked that the gentle formula was still effective in cleaning my clothes. I did't have any loads that came out still stained after use. This is really important as I volunteer at the SPCA and often come home grass or dirt stained. My skin itself is prone to break outs when I switch products and I didn't experience a rash once. The gentle formula really did make a difference with the no added fragrances or additives. Overall I give the PODS a 5 out of 5. They are really easy to use, clean effectively without leaving a scent and did not make my skin break out.

A Gentle Laundry Solution
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a mother of 3 young children with sensitive skin issues, I am always very apprehensive about using new products that will come in direct contact with their skin. I decided to give Tide PODS Free & Gentle a try. I washed a few articles of their clothing in the first load. I closely monitored them while wearing these outfits. Not only did their clothes come out smelling fresh and clean, but it was gentle on the skin of my babies. Not one of them had the least bit of a reaction.

09/05/2015
Convenient and effective
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The convenience of the Tide Free & Gentle Pods is the major draw of this product for me. No measuring, so chance of slimy spills. You simply throw the pod in the drum of your washing machine. As with all Tide clothing detergents, they offer a superior clean for your clothes. I liked how they removed all stains from my clothes without added dyes or fragrances. The issue I had with this product is occasionally I would find a bit of gummy plastic residue left over from a not completely dissolved pod. I had to wash that article of clothing again. It wasn't a huge deal, but I was very hesitant to wash any expensive or special clothing using the pods in case it happened with them. For this reason, the convenience of the pods didn't add enough incentive for me to spend extra money on them when I could use a Tide liquid that I know won't leave any residue. I appreciated the lack of fragrance and dyes (especially for my toddler's clothes), but I did find that there was a slight smell to the clothes when I pulled them out that wasn't especially appealing. They definitely did the ho and took out stains that I didn't need to pretreat, but I will stick with Liquid Tide for my family.

Simply CLEAN!!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] TIDE is the BEST BRAND outthere!! The scents they have last about 2 weks or so which is a really long time, just FABULOUS!! I also carry the Tide to Go in my purse, which is very handy. The Tide pods Gental release is Awesome to use when boosting another detergent. It's also GREAT when using scented dryer sheets so you don't get a mixer of different scents that turn out smelling musty like. The chemical balance is great for sensitive skin.

09/05/2015
Could be better
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Some of my clothes hardly seemed cleaned. I understand this is a gentle detergent, but my clothes shouldn't still have a dirty odor to it. My skin felt fine, but not any different than using any other detergent. My opinion of Tide detergent is the same after trying this product, its something I'd use as an absolute last resort, otherwise there are many other detergents that I'd prefer to use.

09/05/2015
Love this stuff
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I would really consider buying some of these in the future. I love the convince factor of not having to measure the soap each time. My clothes feel very clean when it's done. And there's no irritation

Tide Free & Gentle is Great!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received Tide Free & Gentle free to review as a campaign for BzzAgent, I have to tell you I love it! My Son has very sensitive skin, and I have to watch what type of products I use, well Tide Free & Gentle is great for people with sensitive skin, and it cleans just as good as regular laundry detergent. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin.

Fewer Stains and Bad Smells
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have sensitive skin, but my youngest son's skin is very sensitive and there are many detergents we cannot use because of this. He had no reaction to his clothes after being washed which is great! I have another son, my oldest is 4 and youngest 1 so the clothes and tablecloth get very messy. The pods took out the stains with less help from my separate stain removers than the detergent I use now. My husband is a smoker and I can't stand the smell of his clothes after he wears them. The pods were able to get rid of the stink! My only complaint is that 1 pod is not enough for our large wash, but 2 seems to be too many. I'm not sure how to fix that though. It is very convenient to just be able to throw them in without measuring anything.

09/04/2015
Pods are the best!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband's a mechanic obviously I was skeptical about free and clear ride pods however after using them km so inpressed! I don't think I could go to another brand. They are truly odorless and even better they pack a punch and fight your stains ten fold they even cleaned my hubby's work rags and clothes spotless. A huge plus is the dissolve blessed pod as now I don't have to go through fishing it out if the wash because it dissolves in any temperature water!

Sensitive Skin Tide Pods
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was really excited to try these out because I've seen then around everywhere. These are for sensitive skin but they have no scent and that was a real bummer. My clothes was clean when it came out of the wash but me personally, I like a scent. I wouldn't purchase these because if that but they did clean my clothes.

Gentle on skin
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a person who has very sensitive skin. I was a little nervous about trying a new product for my clothes because I didn't want it to irritate my skin. After trying it I loved it. It didn't irritate my skin and it smells great. It left clothes clean and soft. I would definitely repurchase.

09/04/2015
Convenient & free of dyes
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really liked the convenience of the pods, So easy to toss in the wash vs having to pour out the detergent & clean out the detergent cup. I use the regular Tide and found that regardless of this detergent being free of dyes that it cleaned up my family's clothes, whether deep stained or not, just as well as the regular. I do find you pay for the convenience as the pods cost a lot more than the liquid. Overall, I really enjoyed using these dye free Tide pods.

Great Detergent
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the free samples and have used them many times over the last month.

Free and Gentle is the way to go
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These pods are so easy to use. They are unscented but the clothes still smell fresh anyway. The stain fighting power is amazing since they took out stains other detergents didn't get all the way out. I love the fact they don't irritate my skin since other detergents have before. I sometimes get bothered by overpowering scents in soaps as well as occasional irritation on my skin and I did not have that problem at all with the Tide pods. The only downside to these is they seem easily breakable so be very careful when handling them. Otherwise I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin.

09/04/2015
Fragrance free clean
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A Tide Free & Gentle Pod is a squishy object, described as a “pac capsule.” I was glad to see that the packaging clearly states all cautions and warnings and that the pods contain no phosphates. I like the compact design of these Tide Free & Gentle Pods and I think that they’re quite easy to use. They save a lot of time because you don’t have to pour and measure detergent. I also like that each pod has a detergent and a stain remover portion in it, which are distinguished by 2 different colors. The pods seem to be water activated and work in all temperatures (so they should work for different laundry cycles and types of materials washed). Overall, they worked well to clean and get rid of stains. The items I washed kept the same texture and there was no noticeable smell from the pods.

Perfect for my little one multiple allergies, but I miss the nice fragrances that help me sleep on my sheets
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Tide PODS Free and Gentle detergent pacs were just the thing that my little one that has weekly allergy shots and allergies to almost everything you can think of, include so many fragrances and dyes that are in most products, but the Tide PODS Free and Gentle detergent pacs were just the thing that he needed for his bed sheets and comforters and blankets and pillowcases that we must wash often so he can get the best sleep possible. These little pacs have worked so well for him, but when I used them on our bed sheets and comforters, blankets and pillowcases my boyfriend and I found that we enjoyed having the fragrances that we loved so well that actually seemed to help us sleep better to have those fragrances. While these little detergent pacs were perfect for my little one whose bed sheets and bed clothes are washed several times a week, they did not seem to work so well on our sheets and bed clothes as we did not feel that our sheets were as clean and crisp as we liked, not just no fragrance, but just didn't seem as clean and bright and crisp as they normally do with our normal laundry detergent. While I would still continue to buy the Tide PODS Free and Gentle detergent for my little one as like I said before they were just the thing he needed to get a good night's sleep without allergies interrupting his sleep because they are free of dyes and since his stuff is washed so often it seemed to get his stuff clean, I do not believe I would purchase them again for my mine and my boyfriends stuff as we didn't feel they worked as well as our usually laundry products. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who suffers from severe allergies like my little one who even gets weekly allergy shots to control his severe allergies and the Tide PODS Free and Gentle never once set his allergies off, so that in it self is worth its weight in gold.

Great for Sensitive Skin
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As someone with sensitive skin in the past I have tried several detergents and most have irritated my skin. Thanks to BzzAgent I have discovered Tide PODS Free & Gentle detergent. Now I no longer suffer from irritated skin due to my detergent. Tide Free & Gentle detergent contains no added fragrances, dyes, or harsh chemicals. In addition to being gentle on the skin the detergent is tough on stains and leaves fabrics bright and clean. The PODS are awesome as they involve no measuring and are mess free. Just pop one into the washer before adding your clothes. One of the PODS works with any temperature, any size load and any type of washing machine.

free and gentle pod
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think at first when I have received this sample I was skeptical because many products say they are free and gentle but it was not the case for my family. When we do laundry we tend to rinse it twice to ensure all the soap is off. But i tested this pod out and just did one wash and threw it in the dryer and no one in the family complained about being itchy or anything. There is not a scent to it and I can feel the clean clothes rather than having the strong scent.

Tide Pods Free & Gentle
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I tried Tide Pods free and gentle on my 4 yr old sons clothing. He has terrible excezma, and I was kinda weary about even trying a new detergent. First I just washed all of his towels and wash cloths, since they aren't tiuchung his skin all day long like his clothing. I tossed my pod in and that was it! No measuring it out in the lid, no drips down the side of tbe bottle-much easier! We tried them for a few days, with no skin irritation /reaction before making the leap to his clothing. Now we are on day 32 with NO skin problems what so ever! His clothes are actually cleaner looking than with our old detergent. He is all boy and loves to get dirty, I wasn't sure such a little pod could tackle his dirty clothes, from playing in the dirt all day. I WAS WRONG😉 These little Tide Pods are awesome, small in size but they pack a big punch to tough to get out stains. I would recommend them to anyone with sensitive skin. They are gentle on skin but rough on stains. I will be checking out the otherTide Pods for the rest of the families laundry. Yes, they are THAT good👌👍🙏👏⭐️😃❤️🏆

pods for e a s y
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] oh the joys of living in an apartment without a washer/dryer! read: it is the worse. i try to make all my laundromat trips as easy as possible especially because i walk there! not dragging a bottle of detergent and softener helps a lot and thanks to tide pods, this is possible. they are so portable and so easy. aside, the detergent bin (where you put the liquid detergents/softeners/bleach) at the laundromat is not always the cleanest looking and i get to avoid using this all together with the pods. i only ever wash in warm so i cannot comment on the dissolving in cold, but the pods do dissolve very well in warm water. i work with children and have everything from the outside to the inside on my clothes. i took notice of what was on one of my dresses before cleaning. after using the tide pod, the dress was ready to wear! no more stains (and i did not even have to use extra stain remover)! i will continue using tide pods in the future. + + easy! just pop a pod right in the washing machine with the clothes (i used two for heavy/soiled loads). i could see the detergent going to work through the front-loading machine + lightweight and very portable/convenient + like the 'free & gentle' concept; most necessary for those with sensitive skin. if i did not have sensitive skin, i'd probably buy the regular pods because i like a clean smell to my laundry - - i do have sensitive skin and need these type of products (free/gentle/clear/etc.), but sometimes i wish for a clean smell. while my clothes did come out feeling and looking clean, they did not have the clean smell; it was more like nothing or a bit like the dryer. bummer! - what is the coating around the pod? i assume it is safe to wear

Change Your Detergent Now!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was skeptical of trying Tide Free & Gentle because I don't always believe that things that this will actually work. I have always used Tide though and knew how much of a reputable brand they were so I was excited to be able to try them out. I was extremely pleased with the results that I received from them! They are completely free of dyes and perfumes and are fragrance free and for someone with sensitive skin it's a great thing to have with laundry detergent! My skin has felt great since I started using it! I am extremely happy and will definitely continue buying it after I finish my samples!

Tide free and gentle
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used the tide free and gentle pods in about 7 loads of laundry and to tell the truth I didn't notice that big of a difference besides my clothes looking a little brighter. The pods are very convenient

Life changer for us moms!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is such a great product especially if you have messy babies or babies with sensitive skin or a hard working man that gets dirty at work and comes home covered in grease or dirt. The tide free and clear line really does get stains out it has got chocolate ice cream out of my daughters clothes and grape juice off of my sons clothes. Also brings the hubby's clothes back to life and gets 95% of grease and blacktop sealer stains out of his clothes. I Didn't have to spray anything or try to scrub it out the best I could before putting it in the wash. I just threw it in the washer with one of the pods and forgot about it. It is super easy for us moms one less step in the laundry process. I was so suprised at how well it worked you wouldn't even know there was a stain there at one point. My son is so sensitive and is always breaking out in little rashes ever since we changed detergent it hasn't been happening as often. It's a great product so I thought I'd share my thoughts with everyone and it is cheaper than regular tide. #secondskincare #gotitfree

Tide Free & Gentle works!

Love Tide PODS Free & Gentle
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After trying Tide PODS Free & Gentle detergent pacs my clothes seem brighter and less itchy. Although there is no scent, they are still fresh and clean. The pods are so easy and convenient to use. All you do is throw it in to the machine and that's it. I used them on both of my son's football gear and they worked great. Pods are a little pricey but if you don't mind then it would be worth the money. I'm a penny pincher so I'm going to need to find a good deal first 😄

Best detergent
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So I've been an avid user of Tide for years. I was lucky enough to receive tide pods in a Bzzkit a few years ago and haven't gone back to using liquid detergent yet! So I'm already a huge fan of tide pods, the free and gentle formula however has just been wonderful. As I've gotten older my skin has become more sensitive to regular detergents. My skin can sometimes itch and become irritated when using other detergents, but tide free and clear left my skin feeling nourished and I never had the urge to itch once I started using this detergent. I'm so grateful to have received this Bzzkit from Bzzagent, thank you tide!!

I Sensitive Skin Feels the Difference
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I truly love the simplicity of the Tide PODS. No measuring, no spills, no waste. I have been hesitant to purchase pods, because I always felt they would never get my clothes clean enough unless I used a lot of them. Nope. One Tides Pod cleans a standard load. My clothes looks and feels so clean. Plus, no irritants. What more can you want.

09/04/2015
Great for me, great for you!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product, Tide PODS Free & Gentle are perfect for all the members of your family! In my family, this product works! My fiancé works in landscaping, so his uniforms return home disgusting! They are dirty, stained, and stinky! These PODS have those stain and stench removers without being too harsh! My mom has eczema, so she really has to be careful with every thing that goes on her skin. This includes laundry detergent. Because Tide Free & Gentle doesn't have irritating chemicals and fragrances, making it completely safe for my mom! What do I personally get out of it? Well, since I do the laundry, I like that it is easy to just drop each pod in the washer without mess or stress! just put it in and close the lid! Done!

Great Product
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product works very good. I can definitely see my family using this for a long time to come. I appreciate how it handles the stains, but more importantly, it sets my mind at ease not having to worry about any adverse effects on the sensitive skin of my loved ones, and that was the first thing I questioned concerning this product. I'm very grateful to Tide and BzzAgent for allowing me the opportunity to try these pods! I'm not being paid to say good things about it, but I only have good things to say about it! Customer for life, well, as long as sensitive skin is a concern.

Great job Tide
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I would recommend tide pods for sensitive skin to anyone. Having sensitive skin makes it hard to find a detergent that actually cleans well while not bothering skin. These tide pods did the job. They also had another advantage I wouldn't have thought of. My grandmother, who has severe arthritis, enjoyed using the pods. She did not have to worry about fumbling around with a bottle top. I would recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin or to anyone with severe arthritis or issues opening bottles.

Works great
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Tide free and gentle pods that I used worked terrific, my son had sensitive skin and I always worry about irritation, he also participates in taekwondo with white uniforms which leaves me to worry about stains and dirt. I was pleasantly surprised when after putting his uniforms in they came out clean and bright and also left him with no irritation. With a new baby on the way i was also able to confidently wash all the new clothes without worrying of reactions to the baby's skin which was great.

Such Small Things Pack A Huge Punch
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Other detergents have irritants in them from all the chemicals and fragrances, but these little pods have no added fragrances or unnecessary chemicals added to them so not only are they gentle on your skin but they are also make all your colors brighter but also lift those horrid stains out of your precious clothes too. Switch to Tide PODS today and you won't be disappointed.

Great for baby clothes
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think the Tide free and clear pods are great for baby clothes because they are gentle on skin. Another big bonus is that the pods are so much easier to use than bottles of liquid detergent. I have newborn twins so every spare minute helps

Poor College Student Review
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was pumped when I found out BzzAgent was working with Tide Pods. I spent many a time last year, glaring at my college classmates in the laundry room for they had Tide Pods Free & Gentle and I had a 10 pound container of Kirkland brand laundry detergent. Liquid laundry detergent is as sacred as Friday night barbecue in my house however, so Tide Pods were basically a no-go. Imagine the joy I felt then, when a box packed with Pods showed up on my doorstep. Although I'm saving most for college, I did test quite a bit, so here's the lowdown: Pros: * Size, obviously. I'm living on the third floor of an apartment with no elevator, so the whole "one and done" thing appeals to me * Ease of use. Again, no lugging of multiple containers up and down stairs * Smell, or lack thereof. I have a really keen sense of smell, so I can't use many fabric softeners. * It's Free and GENTLE. I've always had sensitive skin and many detergents break me out. These, however, don't. Cons: *Mainly the cost. I'm a poor college student and liquid laundry detergent is a lot cheaper than Tide Pods. I'd rather not have to choose between food and laundry. While Tide Pods Free & Gentle are awesome, my college student mindset can't justify spending that much money on laundry detergent. Overall: 4/5 stars.

Just as I expected!
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have always been a big fan of Tide laundry detergent. In fact, it's what we currently use. Just not this particular product. I was anxious to try the Free & Gentle PODS as I have a daughter who has sensitive skin. I first did a load using warm water and my clothes came out very clean. Then I did a load using cold water. I was not expecting the same results, but to my surprise my clothes came out just as clean as the load I washed in warm water. So to answer the question, "What would I want to know before I get this product?" I would want to know, "Does the product clean effectively in both warm and cold water?" After using the Free & Gentle PODS I can honestly say that yes, cleans your clothes in both warm and cold water. Also having no scent, it cleans just as good as regular Tide detergents.

09/03/2015
Amazing Product
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was amazing. It was so easy and convenient to use and try out, it really simplified my laundry experience. It was gentle on my clothing but still got it very clean. It made my clothing smell amazing and i loved that it worked in my HE machine and at my jobs regular washing machine so either user can use this product. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone.

Love Tide!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My family has used Tide since I was little. When I went out on my own, I experimented with other detergents, cheaper ones mainly. I finally realized I wasn't saving any money when I had to use more detergent to get things cleaner! So I went back to Tide and have never looked back! I have 3 kids under the age of 5 and the pods do a great job of getting all the stains out. I didn't pretreat any of it! And no one broke out, it truly was gentle! Eczema runs in my family so we are very sensitive to detergents. The only thing is it's a little more expensive than buying a large container of liquid/powder and you can't control how much detergent you can use. Will probably be good for kids who want to help, you won't have to worry about them adding too much or too little! Maybe it'll be worth the expense later when my kids are older!

09/03/2015
great for college students!!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Do you know how convenient these things are when your laundry room is ways away from your actual room? Not only is this product gentle with sensitive skin, it's a tough cleaner. Again, college student so I don' t always stay the cleanest and this is the product to use! Plus, all in one makes it even more convenient rather than taking heavy detergent plus deep cleaners plus fabric softener.

Tide PODS-Making Laundry Easy!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think that the Tide PODS Free & Gentle detergent pacs make the chore of doing laundry a much easier. I love that I am able to throw a POD in the laundry tub and walk away. There is no dripping bottle to wipe down. I look for fragrance free products due to allergies in the household, so I am excited to find an effective product that contains no fragrance or additives. The Tide PODS cleaned the laundry very well, so I don't feel that the effectiveness of the detergent is diminished in any way. My family's clothes were fresh and soft when they were done. I will be purchasing Tide PODS Free & Gentle again and again!

09/03/2015
So Good!!!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] recived a sample of these as a Bzzagent. I have to admit I was skeptical. My daughter has such sensitive skin switching detergent can spell disaster. But these new dye- and fragrance-free pods are the best! No measuring no messy pouring, just toss one in before putting your laundry in and your done. It's pretty amazing. Gentle on my little princesses skin but tough enough to get out those ruff and tumble grass stains.

Did you say chocolate?
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My kids have super sensitive skin, so we have to be careful in choosing a laundry detergent. As a Bzz Agent in was asked to try the new Tide Pods Free and Gentle. I agreed, but not without hesitation. You see, I'm not too keen on the Tide Pods. I've had several bad experiences with them in the past not completely dizzolving in the wash and not getting my clothes as clean as I'd like. But...I have been wanting a change from my current detergent and have been actively scouting out other brands, so I agreed. My son came home one afternoon from a trip to the ice cream shop wearing what looked like half of the ice cone. The kids was covered in dried chocolate ice cream. Add to that, it was a pure white shirt. When I went to wash it I reached for the pre-treater and laundry booster. Then I had second thoughts. Naaa, I thought. I'll put this new Tide pod to the test. I threw the new white shirt in the wash along with a very full load of clothes. When the load was finished I was ready to take a picture of the stain to point out that the detergent wasn't strong enough... oh was I wrong. The Tide Pod got every bit of chocolate out, in ONE wash, without any help. I'm totally impressed, AND the pod dissolved completely in the large load. The other great part of the New Tide Pods Free and Gentle is that it didn't cause any irritation to my kids skin. Clean clothes and no itches is a win, win!

Tide Pure & Gentle Pods
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I can not say enough good things about this product! I love the fact that they are so easy to use, just pop one in the washer and that's it. My families skin is sensitive and these do not irritate our skin at all. Your clothes come out smelling so fresh. These are so easy to use I know have my son doing the laundry, bonus!

09/02/2015
not too bad
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It's okay. I am not sure i feel like it gets clothes completely clean but it does smell great. I also like the cute little packs they come in. Maybe if they made it with a color safe bleach form it would be cool

Was not disappointed
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was so impressed with the cleaning power of the Tide Pods Free and Gentle. My son ended up with car grease on his shirt and after a wash in the Tide Pods Free and Gentle there wasnt a stain left to be found. This product definitely stands well with the trusted brand name of Tide.

Amazing!!!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These tide pods are amazing!! I loved them and so did everyone that I shared them with...they worked perfectly with my HE washer and didn't give me any problems. I have a coworker whose husband can't use a lot of detergent due to sensitive skin and these worked perfectly for them!

I'm Loving It!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have a toddler at home, so as recommended by our pediatrician, we always use gentle none fragrance detergents when washing his clothes and bed sheets. Luckily though, my son does not have super sensitive kids. When I received the sample, I immediately started washing his clothes with the Tide Free & Gentle pod to see if it’s as mild as the All Free & Clear that we have been using. I was happy to say that my son did not have any reactions, and it does an equally good job at washing away all the stain and dirt from his clothes. I also noticed that unlike other pods I've tried, I don’t see any residuals in his clothes. My husband was happy because now he has more options when he goes to the store to restock on our laundry detergent. It still amazes us how fast we go through our laundry detergent now that we have a toddler. It feels like we are doing double if not triple the laundry loads per week with one additional little person.

LOVE TIDE!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have always loved Tide products. I love the smell and how clean all of my clothes are after using Tide. My son has very sensitive skin and I have not been able to use regular Tide. I absolutely love the Tide PODS Free & Gentle. PODS are so convenient. My son loves to help and the PODS are mess free. He is 4 and always on the go and getting into various messes. Just when I think I may have to throw something out because of a stain, I use the TIde PODS Free & Gentle and it gets the stains out! My son does not break out from this detergent. Easy and no added irritants!! LOVE IT!

My Boyfriend Can Finally Use Tide Products!
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've always enjoyed using Tide laundry detergent because I feel like Tide always gets the job done, but when I moved in with my boyfriend I found out he wasn't able to use Tide products due to his sensitive skin - using the detergent on his clothes makes him break out in rashes for some reason. When I received FREE samples Tide PODS Free and Gentle thanks to BzzAgent and Tide, I was a little skeptical on whether or not I should try it out on his clothes. I decided to try it out on a load of our clothes without telling him and guess what? No rashes appeared! We were so surprised because even his mom said she's never been able to use Tide while he was growing up but I explained to them that it was dermatologist tested specifically for sensitive skin - no dyes or perfumes. So thankful I was able to try out the Tide Free and Gentle line because now I can go back to using my favorite brand of laundry detergent!

No More Itchies!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received 5 sample packs of Tide Pods Free Gentle Laundry detergent from bzzagent to review and give my honest opinion of. I have been using homemade laundry detergent because of my children's sensitive skin. I was skeptical to try a commercial laundry detergent for sensitive skin, because they all seem to make my kids break out and "itchy". I figured since I had gotten them free, I might as well give them a try. I washed some of their towels first, just because I didn't want to have something that was going to come in contact with their skin for long amounts of time. That didn't seem to make them break out, so I did a load of their play clothes, and that didn't break them out either. I think I may have found a new laundry day collection to use. I am eager to try their other Free & Gentle products after having such success with the detergent.

09/02/2015
Purely delightful
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using the pods for about a month now and have been enjoying them since the beginning. I used my samples and then went out and purchased more. Besides the initial obvious reasons: ease of use, mess free, no drippy bottle, One handed use, I am now experiencing an added benefit ---- My skin is no longer irritated. I tried everything not realizing it was my detergent. I thought it was my bath gel, my soap, my body lotion, forgetting to lotion, change in climate, etc... And all along it was my detergent ( I been using the same one for years but only recently experienced the unpleasant irritation). What a relief! No dyes, no perfume, no problems!!!!I been itch free and loving it.

1 for medium, 2 for large to extra large loads.
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Tide Pods Free and Gentle Detergent, I love the convinence of a pod, it is just fast and easy. I love that it's for sensitive skin, we have some pretty sensitive skin in our household, not as sensitive as those with recurring skin irritations (excema/psoriasis, ect) but still pretty darn sensitive. There is definitly no scent that I can smell, and that's pretty impressive, my kids skin had zero reactions when I literally changed detergents overnight - I took a chance, and it paid off. Usually, for the sake of their skins, I stick to the same soaps, same detergents, etc, but when we got this, I wanted to see if it was as "free and gentle" as it professed to be, and no one had any ill reaction at all to me switching it out. The only thing that bugs me a bit is that the pods, all pods really, are designed for whats really more of a "medium" size load, and state to add a second pod for large loads of laundry, when we bought our washer I intentionally got the one with the biggest capacity because I hate laundry (I know some like it, but many of us don't, lol) and try to do combined loads while not overfilling of course. I did notice that when I ran my loads there was a discernable difference in the cleanliness of my clothing when finished between using a single pod and using 2. From an economical standpoint, having to use 2 pods on every load for it to be most effective at getting things clean, is just not all that practical, mind you I have two kiddo's, one of which a boy who is absurdly hard on his everything, including his clothes, it might get better in a few years when he's not quite so messy, and I would be able to use 1 pod to effectively clean the loads. As a BzzAgent I receive a free sample of this product in exchange for my honest opinions regarding it.

Lifesaver in a Pod
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This summer with the weather and allergies made my skin as well as my family's very sensitive. I am so glad I had these pods handy when doing the laundry. Without Tide Free and Gentle I would not have known what else to use to wash clothes for sensitive skin. Definitely will purchase. I highly recommend this product for families with small children and just anyone with very sensitive skin. You get cleaning power of Tide, but the gentleness for your clothes.

Decent detergent, nothing special.
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Having tried the product I really like the compact packaging and the ease of just throwing in 1 or 2 of the Tide PODS vs having to pour and measure my detergent. It cleans clothes, bedding, towels ect just fine. Does it remove stains? No. Do I notice brighter fabric? No. It didnt irritate my sensitive skin which is a plus and it did clean as well as the previous free and clear detergent I had been using. It didnt blow my mind and I noticed nothing special about it other than the packaging. I like that its one product that is safe for colors and whites and they do dissolve in any temperature water. The Tide PODS also didnt leave any detergent stains. I probably would not buy these vs my previous detergent as I have more versatility with the pourable detergent when it comes to pre-treating, spot cleaning, washing items that cant fit into a washing machine and hand washing undergarments. This prob best suited for those who dont really have heavily soiled loads or those who go to the laundromat and dont want to lug a giant bottle of laundry detergent with them. These are also a kid magnet, so keep the little PODS away from the little ones.

Tide pods are terrific

Quite frankly amazing
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I cannot believe this little tiny pod can clean a full load of dog blankets and leave them seriously clean and smelling fresh but it's true. I have a paralyzed dachshund and she goes through a lot of blankets every day so I do a lot of laundry and it really only takes one pod to get the work done. It's SO easy and SO convenient. I am thoroughly impressed and will definitely keep using these as they work great for my laundry and my toddlers too!

09/02/2015
Better than i thought
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think the tide free and gentle detergent pacs are quick and easy to just toss in then having to worry about spilling liquid detergent when pouring it into the slot. It takes the stains away a lot better then other detergents and I don't have to worry about using bleach to where the odor is too strong of chemical. I will be using this again with out a doubt! Before I got this product to test out I didn't know anything about it and I wanted to know if there would be a strong smell to it like bleach has or if it actually takes the stains away and not just make them slightly fade like some detergents. This product has been the best one so far and I think I'll stick with it.

A pleasant laundry experience.
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a mother of three boys and wife to a husband in the machining industry, I do my fair share of laundry. On a typical day, I run two loads. On Laundry Day, that number is closer to ten. We live in a rural area, with very hard well water, and I am particular about my laundry routine, because that is the only way our clothes will get clean. Typically, I use a natural product that I purchase in bulk, online. Like Tide PODS, it is fragrance free, and I like the way it leaves my washing machine looking the same way it did before (no residue built up on the sides). Though I have been very loyal to these other laundry products, I wanted to give Tide a chance. My husband's grandmother swears by Tide, and when we were first married, it was the only product we used. After using the Tide PODS for a week, here's what I think. Overall, I very much liked the product. I found just a slight difference in the outcome of comparable loads. Tide PODS appeared to work slightly better in the stain-fighting department. Odor removal was the same. Paired with my laundry boosting powder, the PODS did a great job on more difficult stains from my husband's work, and from the knees of my sons' jeans. The only place where Tide falls behind the competition is in price. The PODS are a convenient option (just toss into the bottom of the washer, and the water, even cold, will dissolve the POD), but they aren't worth the difference in price to me, from a bulk tub of powdered detergent. Cost aside, I would be happy to switch from my regular detergent.

Good for sensitive skin not for heavy jobs
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I felt like these worked great for most of my clothes. But my workout gear didn't come out with a fresh clean scent or feel. I think this would be great for families with small children or anyone that has sensitive skin.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great product if you have any skin problems. I have eczema and it has not been bad at all since I stated using the pods. I would definitely recommend these for anyone to use. My only problem is it doesn't have a "yummy" smell, really no smell at all. If that's what i have to sacrifice for clear skin sign me up.

tide pods!!
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think tide is an amazing brand all in its own, I'm definitely a regular tide user, but I've never used the pods before, but from everything I've experienced with the pods, it will be hard to go back to liquid!! I used about 5 of the pods, the rest I gave to family and friends! I wouldn't say that my clothes came out whiter and brighter, but they did come out clean! I was nervous to use the pods for my old washer, but they worked just fine and disintegrated perfectly! my clothes came out smelling clean and fresh! I loved the pods!! Thank you Bzzagent for giving me an opportunity to use this awesome product for free!!!

Not impressed
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was excited to try these tide pods because I generally use tide liquid detergent, but wasn't that impressed. They aren't bad, but I didn't notice a difference when using these compared to my normal detergent. In general I don't like pods because I have had a problem with them dissolving all of the way. Just make sure that you don't use these with a large load of clothing. I also prefer having a scent with detergent because it I like the fresh smell that lets you know its clean. If you are looking for a scent free detergent, tide is good but I'd stick with the liquid detergent over the pods.

Worked good
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Tide Pods worked good, although I'm not super impressed or unimpressed either way. I generally use powder detergent so the only thing I liked more about the tide pods was the convenience of just popping a pod in with no measurement. To some that may not seem like a big thing but when you're holding an infant and have a toddler tugging at your leg anything that makes chores a little faster is a blessing. I like the brand but will continue to use my normal brand because it works just as good at half the cost.

Tide pods review
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think that they are okay. I don't see myself hurry up to the store for them. There is not any smell to them. So if you like scentless soap this is for you. They do get your laundry washed. Make sure you use two for bigger loads or heavy soiled clothes.

Still awesome!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am still enjoying these pods! My clothes come out so soft and clean without the itchiness sometimes associated with detergent! My clothes smell fresh and feel so clean!

Clean Clean Clean and Dirt-Free
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have to say as a mother of a red headed blue eyed boy with VERY sensitive skin this is by far the best pods on the market. As you can tell dinner time is messy time for him so his clothes are extreamly DIRTY. After washing his clothes they were left clean and bright as can be. The only downfall (like all products for sensative skin) they don't have a scent. I'd love for a free & gentle product to come out with scents. But even without the scents the clothes looked and felt clean. They came out of the dryer softer and the colors brighter. *I used 2 tide pods per load because I fet the bigger loads needed more*

Great for sensitive skin!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was initially very skeptical about using this product because I didn't think one pod would do much to a load of laundry. Well that proved to be untrue after trying this product for the first time. I had a load of colored clothes & after they were done washing & drying they came out looking & feeling clean. I had no side effects from the detergent as I have very sensitive skin. I think that the size of the pod is very convenient & is a great space saver. You really can't mess up your laundry using these pods!

Truly gentle and free of scent
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think that the Tide Free and Gentle pods are an awesome detergent to get cloths really clean without all the strong scent that other detergents have. My husband is allergic to other products that have scent added to them but had no problem when I used these!! #secondskincare. #gotitfree

Excellent product, made my switch already!!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was really not a tide person until I tried the Tide Pods. I absolutely loved them. Now I have changed my laundry detergent to Tide pods, they are so convenient and they actually clean your clothes really good. Your clothes smells really good too with just one or 2 pods. I really recommend these and they are not too expensive because with just one pod its good for a small load.

Perfect for Sensitive Skin
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a 10 month old with super sensitive skin. Even the slightest fragrance can make her skin break out into an itchy rash. I was excited to try The Tide Free & Gentle Pods. I love the ease of use of the pods and like that they work well with HE machines. I washed several loads with the Tide Free & Gentle Pods and she didn't have one reaction to them at all. Not only do are they great for sensitive skin they get clothes clean and leaving them smelling fresh. We will continue to use them at our home.

no idea how great tide pods where
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] What would I want to know before I got this product how well it takes stains out of even colored clothes. The smell not overpowering very pleasant. And the price surprising enough does not cost an arm and a leg. I tried the Tide Pods for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised 1 pod cleaned an entire large load of colored clothes got all the stains and I did not have to pre soak wonderful product I will definitely buy again

Loving the Simple Pod
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love using the Tide Pods, super easy to pop in the washer, add clothes and press start! I don't have to worry about any reactions due to my family of sensitive skin since there is no dye or perfume scent! Easy for any family on the go!

Tide Fresh
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Tide PODS Free and Gentle surprised me! My clothes came out spotless. My family and I wore our clothes after being washed with Tide PODS Free and Gentle and had no irritation. My family has had such a difficult time finding something that will not irritate our sensitive skin, but Tide is a winner!

Tide PODS free and gentil
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I LOVE these! There is no other way to say it! They are great! All of my kids have sensitive skin but my two year old has severe eczema, these have been amazing! They are so simple to use and they get the clothes clean without irritating my kids skin! I am only disappointed that I may not be able to continue to use them as they are very pricy, but that's not to say they aren't worth it! Just may be out of our budget. Overall I love them and this is a great product!

Perfect for the entire family - including those with sensitive skin and infants! ‪#‎SecondSkinCare #GotItFree

Cat Approved
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love Tide PODS Free & Gentle detergent. I have several cats who sleep on my bed all the time. Nevermind I'm always sneezing no matter how many times I wash my comforter but so are they! It only recently occurred to me maybe the detergent I use is too abrasive and is doing something unpleasant to my comforter. Since using Free & Gentle detergent, I can not only go to bed without having a sneeze attack or feeling itchy but now all of my cats sleep with me all throughout the night totally undisturbed! Would recommend for people with sensitivities, allergies and pet owners all the way.

Tide Pods Free & Gentle
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had just finished sewing a lovely pair of bright yellow pants for my daughter, and she really wanted to wear it. In a moment of poor judgement, I allowed her to wear her new pants to the park. The sprinklers were on and the ground was muddy. I watched in dismay as she happily frolicked from one piece of grubby equipment to the next. As I stood wondering how on earth I would get the grime out, I suddenly realized something. I had just received samples of Tide Pods Free & Gentle! I had not had a chance to try it yet, but I promised myself as soon as we got home the pants would be thrown in the wash. That is exactly what I did. I waited impatiently for the wash cycle to end. Finally, it was time to check the pants. With fingers crossed, I pulled them out, not really daring to give it too much hope. But my fears were in vain. The pants came out vibrant, and completely clean! I was so happy, it took a lot to not jump up and down and shriek in joy. The timing of this Bzz Kit couldn't have been better and I am now a new convert to the wonderful Tide brand!

Cleaner Wash
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Usually I buy washing powder, but I had the opportunity to try Tide PODS Free & Gentle detergent. I had not purchased the product before because I still think it's a bit pricey. To be honest I thought the product wouldn't clean my clothes but at the end I was surprised with results, my opinion of this product is positve. My laundry room is always a mess, washing powder on the floor, etc. This product is very easy to use. I didn't have any problem with my clothes I followed exactly the instructions and it works perfectly. NO one who lives in my house or my dogs suffered from any kind of allergies or skin problems because of this product. I mention my dogs because every week I wash their blankets and stuffed toys, they tend to be very allergic, and they're fine. One load of laundry was only white color clothes and they came out super clean, no damage at all. I recommend this product.

Top quality detergent that is great for skin too
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love that Tide is providing a product that my whole family can use. Myself and my youngest son have very sensitive skin. It has taken quite a while to find a detergent that was not irritating to either one of us. I found Tide free and clear several years ago, but I stopped using it because I found another brand that made the free in clear in the gel pac. I was never happy with the cleaning but the product was convenient. Once I received the Tide pods I was excited to go back to a brand I trusted. I knew that the Tide free and clear would get our clothes really clean while protecting our skin. I love how easy the pods are to use. Even my 5 year old can now help with laundry.

Cleans great even grease!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband is a mechanic and the Tide pods even clean his greasy mess! Plus he can even do a load of laundry without over using the detergent. Thanks Tide for a great product along with a easy to use product!!

Incredible products for busy moms
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is every mothers dream product! Tide Pods Free and Gentle get out tough stains all while being gentle on skin. There are no perfumes or dyes and leave your clothes clean and fresh. This is so important to me as a mom of three boys and a newborn. I need it strong enough to get out stains and gentle enough for the baby. It also can't be any easier! You just pop them into the washing machine. You don't have to measure or use the cup which I always seem to drip or spill the detergent in. I love this product and never plan to go back to using regular detergent again.

Quicker, Easier, Gentler Laundry!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The first thing that struck me about Tide PODS Free & Gentle was just how easy it is to throw a pack into the drum of my washing machine while I'm adding the clothes! No more measuring! The next thing that struck me about the Tide PODS was how my laundry smelled clean - cleaner than what I was previously using! - without having an overwhelmingly perfumed scent. I also noticed that one pack thoroughly cleans even a large load of laundry, leaving my clothing stain-free and looking brand new. I have a high efficiency washing machine and I experience no problems with these PODS. My only concern about continuing to use the Tide PODS is their price, but if you can afford it, I believe you get a great product for your money.

Love the convenience
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Super easy to use! Just pop it in the washer with the clothes and you are good to go! Can't beat that with three kids and the many loads that I do on a regular basis. The three people in my family with sensitive skin (husband, 6 year old son and 1 year old daughter) had no skin irritations with the Tide PODS Free & Gentle detergent pacs. Plus it got all my clothes clean...from my kids soccer clothes to my baby's food covered clothes!

Tide sample pods
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think it cleaned just fine. I revieved this sample free from bzzagent to give my honest opinion. There was absolutely no fragrance but it left my clothes kind of scratchy. I would buy it but I would have to get fabric softener too.

Loving this so much!!!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You'd think measuring soap wouldn't be to big of a hassle right? But with the stuff I just toss in a packet and go and don't have to measure a thing so convient! I also love that I don't have to stop in the middle of the was cycle to add fabric softener. My son has very very sensitive skin and he didn't break out at all so amazing! And my husband always complains he misses his clothes smelling like Tide (can't use original formula because my sons skin) but this way be still gets that light scent he misses. Finally found the perfect soap for us!!! Definitely am buying again!!

So Conveinent and Smells Great!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I don't want my laundry to smell bad, I just don't want it overly fragrant or perfumey either. I was so happy when I tried the Tide PODS Free & Gentle. They make my clothes smell fresh and clean but don't give off an over powering scent that just covers up a bad smell. These pods are so easy, I just start the washer and toss one in. They dissolved really well in each load, even when I washed with cold water which I haven't always experienced with other Pods I've tried. I love how soft and clean my clothes are, and I've had no problems with sensitivity or skin reactions that I have had before with other detergents. These pods are a time saver and have made my laundry room so much cleaner without all the detergent smears and spills all over the place. I am definitely a fan of Tide PODS Free & Gentle!

09/01/2015
Great Product!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was great. With the Tide Pods there is no need to measure anything out, you just pop in the pod and you're good to go! The Free & Gentle pods still left my laundry just as soft, if not softer, than regular detergents, and using it on my towels and sheets helped keep my skin from getting irritated like it can from average detergents. During this campaign I did some laundry at my parents' house, and they use the standard Tide with blue dye in it. I washed some white towels, and when I took them out there was a big blue stain from the dye in the detergent! I wished I'd given THEM some of my Free & Gentle samples so that wouldn't happen!

Favorite!!!
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think I have found my new favorite laundry detergent. My boyfriend and our son both have eczema and this has been perfect for their skin. They have no broken out and it has such a fresh smell to it when the clothes are clean. I have already repurchased and turned to this detergent as our normal wash for our clothes.

Need the scents
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I liked the fact that my clothes were cleaner and I was seeing brighter whites I am one of those people that need the clean smell with the clean look other than that they were great I actually bought the regular tide pods for the first time after using the free and gentle!!
