I'm a super big fan of pod detergents. Tide has always been a solid cleaner and these are no exception. The major plus I have always felt using this is that I do not waste excessive detergent. I typically only ever use one pod unless it's a VERY big load (then 2). Being less messy and no waste saves money in the long run.

You may see some reviews that state they do not dissolve. The reason for that is people do not follow instructions. If you put this on top of your clothes or in the mix of them, you will have that issue. Put the pod in your washer FIRST and then add your clothes. If you follow that one simple rule they will always dissolve. I use a front loading high efficiency washing machine and have gone through hundreds of these pods and not one has ever not dissolved when placed in first.

These pods are the ultimate convenience. If you have to use a laundromat, I would think these would be much nicer than lugging a bottle of detergent. I like that the perfect amount is already portioned. My kids can even help with the laundry with these, and I do not have to worry about them spilling detergent or slopping it over the side of the bottle. Tide pods wash clothes well even in cold water, and my whole family likes the Spring Meadow scent.
The plastic tubs can be refilled with more pods, or I like to repurpose them for toy storage for my kids. I find they are perfect to store Legos.

I love Tide PODS. I recommend that you always use at least 2 pods per wash UNLESS you are washing a tiny, tiny load (then use only one pod) or an extremely large load (which would require 3 pods). I rarely have to use a spot cleaner anymore and I no longer ever use a booster because the Tide PODS really, really clean! I like to buy the largest container I can find for the best price which I located on Amazon. The container was shipped to me well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Excellent expiration date and the seal is intact, so I am very pleased with this purchase.

I missed the return window by 6 days or else I would be returning these. I have used regular tide pods for the past 5 years and never have had a problem. I saw this HE turbo option on amazon and thought it would be the same as every other tide pod that I have used previously. Extremely disappointing. I have done 7 loads of laundry since purchasing these and every single load had reminents of the tide pod stuck to multiple items of my clothing and linens. In my last load the tide pod “skin” was completely visible and stuck to a pair of my black work pants in multiple areas of the pants. The issue is that you can’t tell that your clothes are coated in the pod skin when you take them out of the washer so when you put them in the dryer it damages the item when it dries into the fabric. I put the tide pod into a cup of water to test how it disintegrated. I stirred it and pushed around the pod with a spoon. After an hour of the pod being in the cup, the skin was still partially intact.

I don’t know if Tide changed its formula completely for these but I will be throwing out the rest of my container because they are useless.

I used to love these. They used to work. I actually had them on my subscribe & save. But recently, the pods were no longer dissolving completely. Some parts of the outer covering turn into gummy residue that stuck on my clothes and survive the drying as well. One time I went out not knowing my pants had this gummy thing stuck to the buttock pocket; it was embarrassing. I did my best to hide it. Good thing it was only to attend a livestream class at work and there were only the two of us attendees. They can be removed by soaking in a tub then vigorously handwashing, but what is the point of having an expensive HE washer if I will have to do this time-consuming activit of hunting down which clothes have stuck-on gummy Tide on them and then washing them off? I am busy already as it is with my full-time job as an RN and with my new business of homemade lotions! Thing is, I still have at least 6 of these containers unopened. I want to return but can I if they have been sitting on my pantry shelves for some time now?

I am OCD when it comes to laundry. Seriously. It's a problem. I have an obsession with clothes smelling like they came fresh out of the dryer. If clothes in the closets start to smell "stale" or not recently washed (as everyone in my home insists I'm insane when I say they smell stale) I will rip them out of the closet to return the freshly laundered scent. My husband, in a desperate attempt to save my sanity (and water and washer and dryer from overuse) decided to buy this. It really works! The clothes smell amazing, when I open the closets they all smell fresh like a chain effect and I no longer find myself washing clean clothes just because they don't smell clean anymore. I will be keeping this on hand at all times.
If you find my review helpful please hit yes. Thank you

I grew up always using Tide powder detergent. It always seemed to get my clothes clean, and transitioning to liquids just seemed to be messier than using the powder.

Tide PODS came along, and since I now have an HE washer, it was necessary to use this type of detergent. After struggling with liquids, I decided to change to using the PODS.

What's great is the PODS are pre-measured, and one POD goes a long way. If you need to use more detergent because you have a heavier load, or one that's more soiled, simply pop in an additional POD. There's no more measuring, no more drips, and no more powder to clean up in the wash area.

One caution is to ensure your hands are dry before reaching into the container for a POD. The PODS dissolve in water, and if you get some moisture into the container, the PODS will stick to one another. If you have a humid laundry room or a humid garage, always keep the container tightly closed.

While there is a fragrance as indicated by the label, it is not overpowering. Clothes come out clean, and as with the Tide I grew up with, it works well in our HE machine!

I started using these when I lived in an apartment and had to carry my laundry to a community laundry room. It was much easier to place five of these in my laundry bag and carry my wash down to do five loads than to carry a large laundry detergent bottle around. Now that I have my own washer/dryer in my new place, I still use these because I was very satisfied with how they actually cleaned my clothes. It's much simpler and cleaner than pouring and measuring out detergent.

I'm actually more of a Gain fan but I like to have Tide around for tough stains. It just tends to work best for heavily soiled laundry; for example, I prefer to use a Tide pod for socks and dishtowels/dishclothes. I like these pods because they're quick to use and don't make a mess. This is particularly nice when you have teens doing laundry. They help to keep the laundry room in better condition. Also, I only one pod is necessary with our HE washer, even on large loads. Price wise, the pods do cost a little more than the liquid detergent per load, but the additional stain fighting power and scent enhancement seems to balance this out.

When the pods arrived they were all stuck together and I could use only half of the pods. The rest need to be thrown out. I tried to separate several, only to have them explode on my clothing. Since they are expensive. I was disappointed with the product. I would really like my money returned.
