Shouldn't have to re-wash clothes multiple times

The pods don't dissolve. Residue is either sticky like silicone, or dry and hard like super glue on the fabric. Beyond frustrated at this point!

Tide Response From Tide 04/16/2018

We always want our PODS™ to be convenient and efficient, Michelle, and we’re sorry that wasn’t the case. We never want to frustrate you and want you to know that our detergents are water-soluble. To remove any residue soak the garments overnight, then rewash without detergent in the hottest water safe for the fabric. We’d like to help you further, please call us at (800) 879-8433.

Since Trying this product, we have had no problems with rashes or skin irritation with my son. I am very happy with this product and will continue to use it in my home.

Cleans well and Gentle on my sensitive skin!

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.
