  • 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.

Only stuff we can use

Not only is this a very good detergent, it's the only stuff my entire family can use. Some of us are allergic to pods, others to liquids, and EVERYBODY to scented garbage. There are a lot of people out there who REALLY need this stuff. Don't you dare ever change or discontinue it!

The powder residue left on shirts

I am a fan of Tide but I purchase large boxes in bulk and this powder left residues on our clothes. I was very disappointed and I hope the other products do not.

We're very sorry you had that experience with our Tide Original Powder. This is not something we expect to happen, but we have some tips that should restore your clothing to excellent condition. Rinse the stained fabric under warm water immediately.Soak the garments overnight in water.Re-wash the affected garment again in your washing machine with NO laundry detergent. Wash at the highest temperature permitted by the care label. Always follow care label instructions for suggested water temperature.To keep this from happening, make sure you don't over dose the laundry detergent or overload the washer. If you have any questions, give us a call at (800) 879-8433. We're here to help.

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).
