Like most Tide detergents, Tide Free & Gentle contains surfactants molecules that have two parts. One is "water loving," and the other is "water hating." The water-loving (hydrophilic) part breaks the surface tension of water. The water-hating (hydrophobic) part is attracted to oil and grease, helping to loosen and remove them from your clothes.

Detergents usually contain more than one type of surfactant to remove certain types of soils and clean different types of fabrics. Other ingredients in laundry detergent can include fluorescent whitening agents (to help maintain whiteness or brightness) and enzymes (to help break down complex soils such as blood and grass).

And, unlike most detergents that also contain dyes and perfumes, Tide Free & Gentle does not.

Too much plastic + Odors are not removed.

I finally decided to switch detergents because although Tide eliminate stains, odors were not, so I had to always add a sanitizer to cover that. Also, we decided to eliminate plastics as much as we can, so we switched to True Earth eco strips which dissolves better than a pod, eliminated odors and are so easy to handle (so small of a package). We eliminated 3 plastic refills monthly altogether.

Product Value

I don't get it. Why is the highest dosage for HE washers? I thought one could use less for HE washers. Also, why is it not concentrated to reduce packaging? Not sure if I will buy this again. I go through it so fast. Also, it is misleading as to how many loads you can do with a bottle. The number of loads stated is based on filling to the first line. Since I have a HE washer, I only get one fifth the number of loads stated.

Elizabeth, we're very sorry you're having this experience. Our HE detergents are designed to provide a great clean in today's modern washers that use significantly less water than a traditional washer. You only need to use the highest dosage of detergent for an HE Full Load. Some High Efficiency machines have a 5 cubic feet drum and can hold a lot more laundry than a traditional machine – we call these bigger loads ‘HE Full Loads’. For a normal load, follow the dosing directions on the bottle. We hope this cleared up the confusion. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at (800) 879-8433. We're here for you.

Your product has propylene glycol

I and others are allergic to this ingredient. This ingredient was "winner of year" in 2018 for Allergen of the year by the American Contact Dematitis Society.
