Not happy with the quality of the pods

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.

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.

impossible to open

These pods work just fine, but the container is impossible to open unless one is a gorilla. I am not a weak person but I have to get my husband to open the container. I will be buying another brand.

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.

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.
