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.

Nothing like Tide

Just started using the powder again after like 20 years. The scent seems to be the true original scent. It does a great job cleaning. Tide is the best.

Definitely not free of perfumes!! Very misleading

This still smells like traditional tide, just less obnoxious. I only bought this to wash cloth diapers, and I’m disappointed.

Rowan, we're very sorry you're having this experience. It's certainly not something that we expect to happen with our Tide Free and Gentle. We don't add any fragrance to our Free and Gentle powder detergent. Any scent you're experiencing is the natural scent from the ingredients used to make your detergent. We do understand that fragrance and scent preferences are very subjective and personal, but, we'll make sure to tell our teams how you feel. if you have any questions, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Powder detergent beats liquid, hands down.

In my experience, tide powder is the best. The only use I have for the liquid, is to pretreat oily spots. So, pods are out. I only wish there were single usage packaging. Husband and grandkids, you know...I DO, repackage my powder into big ziplock bags, which I then place in the original carton. Less lumpy that way. AND, I measure out exactly how much is meant by the lines in the stupid scoops. (It differs by The “type” of tide... sigh). I then use a two tablespoon scoop to measure out the correct amount for my loads. OTHERWISE, I use too much, and it doesn’t rinse out properly.Even with all of that finagling, Tide powder is still (hands down) the best at cleaning my laundry!

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!
