FAQ

Q: How do Tide PODS® work?
A: Tide PODS® clean, fight stains, and brighten all in one. The unique, three-chamber design allows ingredients to remain separate, stable, and powerful mixing only when they hit the wash for outstanding cleaning and stain removal.

Q: How do I use Tide PODS®?
A: Simply insert one pac of Tide PODS® into the drum of your washer to deal with a regular load, consider using two pacs for a big load or heavily stained clothes. Feel free to proceed with washing in any temperature as Tide PODS® are specifically designed to quickly dissolve in both cold and hot water.

Q: Do Tide PODS® work equally well on whites and colours?
A: Yes, Tide PODS® have been thoroughly tested on all sorts of laundry conditions and are safe for both whites and colours.

Q: How is HE Turbo different from Safe-for-HE compatible detergents?
A: Using detergents that are only HE compatible produces excessive suds, which make the machine run longer due to additional rinse cycles needed to rinse out the suds. Tide designed its new HE Turbo detergents with Smart Suds™ technology, which eliminates suds so the cleaning ingredients in the detergent can act faster and rinse out quicker. Additionally, the wrong detergent can add up to 10 more gallons of water to your HE wash cycle.

Q: Can I save energy by washing in cold water with Tide HE Turbo PODS® laundry detergent?
A: Yes. In fact, if all Las Vegas households switched to washing in cold for one month, you could power the Strip for up to six days*. Just imagine the savings you could see in your household by doing the same. *Based on total electricity use in the United States and all US households switching all loads from warm to cold temperature in standard top-loading machines with electric water heaters.

Q: Is this detergent low suds?
A: Yes. It’s been formulated with Smart Suds™ technology, which allows you to use even the quick cycle without sacrificing the clean!

Q: Does Tide HE Turbo PODS® clean in cold water?
A: Yes. In fact, Tide’s trusted cleaning ingredients are so powerful that it cleans even better* in cold water than the competition does in similar wash conditions.
*Stain removal of 1 dose of Tide vs. 6 doses of the leading competitor liquid brand base variant.

Q: Is Tide HE Turbo PODS® safe to use with both my whites and colours?
A: Yes. Tide HE Turbo PODS® helps keep your whites white and your colours colourful, wash after wash.

Q: Should I use this detergent in a standard washing machine?
A: We recommend only using Tide HE Turbo PODS® in high efficiency machines.

Makes laundry smell fresh for a long time

Tide PODS Plus Febreze Odor Defense 4 in 1 with Sport Odor Defense are super easy to use and work really well. I love how convenient and mess-free tide pods are. My laundry also came out clean and smelled fresh for weeks after using this product. The fragrance is nice, but is a little hard to describe - slightly sweet and kind of fresh and clean. If you are really sensitive to fragrance though, you probably won't like this product because the smell is fairly strong and lasts for weeks. I personally liked how fresh my laundry stayed though - especially the blankets my dog uses. Definitely recommend this product to those who want their laundry to smell clean for a long time.

Effective mess-free pods.

The new Tide Odor Defense Pods with Febreze are very effective. I used one pod in my load of sports clothes and in slightly warm water. The pod melted just fine (with other similar products I found unmelted pods) and my clothes smelled incredibly clean. The smell is not my favourite but not bad - all of us have different scent preferences, but my clothes came out fresh smelling.

Would recommend

Tried the tide pods plus febreze odor defense 4 in 1 with sport odor defense. First impression was the scent. Love the smell of it very much ! Think it's the febreze component of it. Easy to use. Convenient tiny pods vs. Liquid detergents so kids can help with laundry. Like the child-guard zipper feature on the package. It is a bit pricey compared to liquid but for convenience, it's perfect. Clothes come out clean and smelling great. Would recommend.

Tide Pods 4 in 1 Odor Defense

I recently was able to try the Tide pods 4 in 1 odor defense and what a great product. For a Mom with 2 teens boys who are active I put this product to the test. It comes in an easy to use bag and you toss one pod in with the laundry. Well my laundry smelled great..fresh, clean and looking good. The smell is amazing and it got rid of all those "teen odors". I will definitely be purchasing this product again and I recommend it to everyone. Great product!

Good product. Would recommend.

This tide product is good in that it doesnt require any measuring or pouring to do the laundry. Just simply toss one to two pods in the washer with each load, and done. The stain remover is adequate for the pod itself, though tough stains will likely still require extra care. I love the scent of the product and its long lasting effects on the clothes. I would recommend it to anyone who has dirty clothes to be washed.
