  • For large loads, fill to bar 3.
  • For he full loads, fill to bar 5.

Start washer, add detergent, then add clothes.

Powder Measurement Instructions

How It Works

Like regular Tide, 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.


Safety

Ensuring the safety of our Tide® line of fabric care products is a responsibility that P&G takes very seriously. Before any product can appear on store shelves, it must be demonstrated safe to use as intended. But that is only the beginning of our journey. The Earth's resources are limited and valuable, and we have an obligation to future generations to use these resources wisely.

Great Product but hard to find

This is the best thing I've found for our cloth diapers. Unfortunately, I can't find them anywhere in a 300 km radius or online. I have to load up when I go to Vancouver (8 hours away).

Can't Find

I concur with Tide Hunter. The powder formula of this works 100% better than any other form of it. BUT is SO HARD TO FIND!!!!

No longer fragrence-free

It used to be mostly scent-free; it definitely no longer is. It imparts a strong fake-lavender smell which lasts for days. Due to medical issues, we need low-odor detergent. We'll be changing brands.

When we say fragrance-free, we mean it! Tide Free and Gentle is made fragrance-free and dye-free, so sensitive skin can have deeply clean clothes too. It may be helpful to know that although fragrance or perfume is not added to the product, they will have a scent due to their natural smell. Since there's no masking fragrance added to cover this smell, you may notice it before using the product, but it should not transfer to your fabrics after use. Lavender isn’t something we expect, however, and that may be due to prolonged contact with strongly scented products. Tide Free and Gentle can pick up fragrance from other nearby products in some unique circumstances, so we’d like to learn more about your experience. Please give us a call at (800) 879-8433 and we’d be happy to help.

Works great!

Tide works better than other detergents and I need to use Tide Free, without scents. I prefer the powder in a box, also Liquid does not work nearly as well.

Box is poorly designed

When I opened the box, the corners tore, such that powder detergent spilled out. Once I've done a few loads the contents should be low enough to avoid further spilling, but this is a poor design.
