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.

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.

The last thing we want to do is let our fans down, and we've let the team know how much you miss the old caps. Please know that our team does extensive research when designing our packages, including consumer testing. It may help to know that the cap may become messy if you shake your detergent before use. There's no need to shake-- your Tide is ready to pour! If there's anything else we can help with, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Tide HE Free & Gentle quality

Have been using Tide HE Free & Gentle for years. Today when I ran short, I opened a new Tide which was cloudy & dark yellow in color. Did not use it. Noticed this is not the first complaint.

Your Free & Gentle Tide should be a straw colored liquid, Dinah! It sounds like your bottle made it past our many quality checks and made it to you without meeting our high standards. We're so sorry about that! We'd love to learn more about your bottle and help further. When you can, please call us at (800) 879-8433.
