Smells great, not the same cleaning power

I was really hoping this would have the same cleaning power of regular tide but it doesn't. I tried pretreating stains and it just didn't work as well as the original tide. The smell is great!

A touch of Downy no more. Miss the old scent.

I was floored (like, literally almost fell over from the scent) when the new formula was introduced. Before the change, i had found the perfect laundry detergent--with just a touch of scent. Because it changed, I started using a competitor's unscented brand. I have been trying the separate april fresh scent beads, but they are also too strong, and simply not the same scent. The old Tide with Downy had a very nice scent, and the new version isn't a stronger version of it... it seems totally different and yucky. I still had half a bottle left of the old scent that I have been saving, and on a whim I decided to use some on my laundry detergent recently. It reminded me of how wonderful the old scent was, and how disappointed I am about the change. I have a family of 5 plus a dog, so we do a LOT of laundry. Please find a way to bring back the old product! If people want strong smelling laundry, they should be advised on the label that is it stronger. It is no longer a "touch of downy". The new version announces to everyone who gets close to me that I perfumed up my clothes with heavy detergents. Not the message I want to send.

Great at cleaning but scent does not last

This detergent does an excellent job at cleaning clothes. It is one of the few detergents that i've tried that removes stain with little work from me. The scent from the bottle and while washing is so lovely. But once I put the clothes in the dryer or leave them to hang dry, the scent is gone. I know the cleaning aspect is what's important from a detergent. But the scent is really important to me as well. I really wish that the scent would stay even a little on my clothes because it truly is a lovely scent.

While we're glad to hear that you're enjoying a great clean with Tide, Elizabeth, we're sorry that the scent wasn't as long-lasting as you would have liked. In April 2019, we actually made improvements to this scent in order to maintain and enhance the freshness experience. Fragrance may fade if the container has been opened for a long time, so we recommend making sure you're using this product within a year. We do value feedback such as this, and we'll be sure to pass your comments along to the rest of our team. Your satisfaction means the world to us, so please feel free to give us a call at (800) 879-8433. We'd be happy to look into this further for you and see how we can best help!

P-U!! New smell is TERRIBLE!

I've used Tide with Downy for YEARS. Several months ago, I brought some home and thought I got a bad batch - it smelled so bad. I literally took it back and to my dismay, found they all smelled like that. I contacted TIDE and they said they did consumer research and have updated the scent. Super bad decision. Remember when Coke changed their formula (New Coke) and we lost our minds about that? That switched it back and all was right with the world. I'm writing this now as my supply of "old" Tide with Downy is just about out and I'm crushed. Tide - be like Coke, go back to the original formulas and scents.

We're very sorry you had that experience. We certainly hate to disappoint a fan who has been with Tide for years. We adjusted the scent of our Tide with Downy to be more in line with what consumer research has told us is wanted; a longer lasting freshness on clothes and fabric. While we completely understand that scent and fragrance preferences are very subjective and personal, please be assured that we're forwarding your comments on to our teams. If you have any questions, or if we can help you further, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

TIDE WINS AGAIN

TIDE is a superior product. My Mom always used it & now I do too. One complaint we always had was the navy blue cap & trying to see the marking for the amount you require by the size of the load. The new see through light blue cap is awesome. No more guessing, plus you've added my favourite Fabric Softener - Downy. Love your product.
