Like most Tide detergents, Tide Free & Gentle contains surfactants. Surfactant molecules 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 in soils, loosening and removing them from fabrics.

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).

Most detergents also contain dyes and perfumes. Tide Free & Gentle does not.

Great if you suffer from allergies to scents as it is scent free and works just as good as regular one (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Such a breathe of fresh air!

I've been using Tide detergent on and off for the past few years, and I think I found one of my favourites! This one is different from other detergents because it is fragrance and dyes, and is for high efficiency machines. I loved the fact that there was no overpowering smell, and that it has less unnecessary additives. It worked really well- I used it to do a huge load of bedding, and everything was fresh and clean. I'm a fan!
