Caused my washer to flood my laundry room!

I used this brand as I couldn't find any of the brand recommended by my washer manufacturer. I made a terrible mistake! I returned to the laundry room mid cleaning cycle and the entire room was filled with suds. This product filled my entire front load washer full of bubbles to the point that it was leaking out from the closed door, and up through the soap dispenser tray. I even saw some water and bubbles coming from under the washer. It was like a scene from a sitcom, except it wasn't at all funny to have to clean it up. The package says it is for HE front load washers, but I do not recommend anyone else try this.

Worst Mistake 0 stars if I could

My machine did not smell bad at all but wanted to run a cleaner through it to break down any hidden grime etc. I have used tide for years and assumed that this product would clean and leave a nice mild tide smell behind. Wrong! I opened my machine door after using this cleaner and took a sniff and almost passed out. It is so strong and chemical smelling that I genuinely fear what kind of fumes I am inhaling because I am trapped in my apartment with this horrible thing! I have run clean cycles, sanitary cycles, steam cycles, regular laundry, vinegar and baking soda just to try and get the smell to go down. I am now stuck with my bathroom and kitchen fans on all day and night to suck the air out of my condo. I have a hepa filter running 24/7 and have had to relocate my pet birds until I can figure out how to undo this damage. Never ever use this in your machine unless it is in your garage or a separate house far away from where you live. It has been weeks and the smell has not gone anywhere. I wish I had read a review before buying this but I picked it up in a grocery store and assumed it would have the same level of quality that regular tide detergent has. I am worried that my washer is ruined now. The smell will not die!

SMELLS TOO STRONG

It does not disclose on the package how STRONG the Tide scent is!!!! I thought it was just a machine cleaner & was not expecting it to have a fragrance. I’m extremely sensitive to scents and this made my throat itch! Now I have two more packages I can’t use. Wish I could get my money back!!!

Horrid!

The horrific stench filled the house and I've been running empty loads with detergent through it, trying to get it minimized. I'm pretty sure this is what toxic waste smells like. I've got fans blowing it out the windows, although I am worried what it will do to the birds in the neighbourhood. This is disgusting. I'm afraid to put my laundry into the machine. The remaining packages will go to recycling and let them deal with the contents. The first test load will be with an old towel just in case it ruins it with stench and goodness knows what? I'm afraid to even put my hands in, what the heck does this do to a person's skin let alone the environment after it washes away????

Clean maybe, perfume stink, yes

I can't comment as to the ability to clean, but it will infuse your washer with a disgusting strong perfume scent. I had to use another cleaner to de-scent it before I would let it touch my clothes.
