Tide Pods Review

By April 29, 2012

Follow me on:

Several weeks ago when I was grocery shopping I decided to pick up a 77 count package of the new Tide Pods. I knew I had enough laundry to put Tide to the test. I loved the idea of not having to measure out any laundry detergent. And to be honest, these little packs of laundry detergent in gel pack form were pretty and promising. Nearly 70 loads later and the results are in. So how did my Tide Pods review turn out? And how will it work with your laundry?

(1) Diann says:

Horrible, I followed the directions exactly, placing the pack in the bottom of a high efficiency washer, then placed my fiance’s dress shirts. Each and every one came out with blue stains. None of the following took out the stains: rewashing in other detergent, Shout stain remover, color safe bleach, OxiClean soak, and last when totally frustrated chlorine bleach which removed the shirt color but not the stain. Now I can go shirt shopping, glad he didn’t need to leave for a business trip the next day.

Tried them and they are horrible!The packet(skin) doesn’t fully dissolve,unless you wash in hot water!I usually wash in cold or warm water .The packet( skin )sticks on to a piece of clothing and not noticing I put it in the dryer.It melted onto the clothing and almost impossible to remove. Took at least 3 washes to get off ,it also leaves blue stains all over. I am really surprised about all the good reviews(got to be fake)!

Hey, sounds like previous poster put Dry-Clean Only shirts in her washer! I bought a huge tub of Pods at my warehouse club, I wash small loads in cold water and am LOVING how old stains that regular Tide liquid did NOT take out are now GONE with the Pods.

(4) Hoyt says:

If you’re having problems with the pods not dissolving you may be overloading your washer. I had the same problem, but once I started putting a little less clothing in the washer everything worked fine

(5) Kylee says:

HORRIBLE!! Wish I would have listen to the bad reviews. The pods are absolute horrible. They have stained many clothes with dark blue stains all over them that I can’t get it out. I have rewashed and soaked in oxiclean and it won’t come out. Brand new shirts of my children. Expensive brand name ones too. I have not only wasted my time trying to get the stains out but my $20 because I bought the 72 count thinking that if their made by tide the pods will be wonderful. But was I wrong. Very, very disappointed. Thinking I’m changing laundry soap brand just because of this. I wish I could get my money back for such a waste. Maybe it’s because I have a brand new front loader. I dont know but I do know they are going to the garbage after using only 2 and ruining items in both the loads:(

(6) Kylee says:

HORRIBLE. Wish I didn’t waste my $20. It has ruined my laundry. Dark blue stains. I have re washed and soaked in oxiclean and nothing works. Not impressed. What a horrible experience. Can’t believe tide made such a horrible product. I have a brand new front loader maybe that’s the problem. I don’t know but I do know that i used 2 pods both ruined shirts in 2 loads so the rest are going straight to the garbage.

(7) Brandy says:

I’ve not had any problems with the pods dissolving but they are not effective stain removers. I used two pods, hot water and the extra long wash cycle but they still did not get out a fresh blood stain. I used to make my own washing powders and they were great for overall cleaning but not stain removal. This product was no better…and a lot more expensive. I won’t be buying again.

Stained my clothes and left sticky residue on them –love idea hate product. Threw away 8 shirts

July 23, 2012 at 6:46 am
(9) Nicole says:

Absolute waste of $$. They have next to no detergent inside. Clothes didn’t even smell clean. I had to put 3 in at a time. Now I am using them up with regular detergent just to get rid of them.

(10) Jessica says:

I cannot believe some of the negative comments here.

I have used the Tide pods for over 75 loads of laundry now and have NEVER had a problem with them and I use them in hot, warm and cold water depending on the type of load.

Regardless of the temperature setting, I always put the pod in our top loading washer and let it break down and release the detergent BEFORE putting any clothes in. In very hot water, the pod breaks down almost instantly but in colder water, it takes a bit longer.

Because our apartment building washing machine is top loading, I also swish my hand or a towel around in the tub after it’s filled up to about half full, to ensure the pod contents are properly distributed in the water BEFORE putting any clothes or other laundry in.

I also used them in my friend’s front loading, high efficiency machine. Just put the pod in, close the door and start the machine, letting the water fill and the pod dissolve BEFORE you add the clothes.

Hope this helps !!!

(11) Amanda says:

OMG..I can’t believe some of the comments posted here.

Honestly people – think it through ! It’s not rocket science. Drop the pod in, let the water fill the washing machine, wait for the pod to dissolve properly BEFORE you put your clothes in !!! Does it make sense just to drop in the pod and put your clothes/shirts right on top of it, before you put some water in ?

The clothes will trap the pod and it’s contents won’t be able to release properly.

My friend’s 5 year old had no problem using these and neither should you.

July 25, 2012 at 5:39 pm
(12) Gray Beard says:

I’m on my second container of these and think they work pretty awesome in my Whirlpool He front loader. Most loads we use cold water and have never found anything that didn’t dissolve. However, as #6 Julie Johnson says, I think they’re making me itch almost all over. No rash, just itch. Driving me nuts. Just stopped using them to see if they’re the cause.

Thanks

(13) Mindy says:

Well I have been doing laundry for a large family for 35 years and I have experience here, these things are worthless!!!! I wonder if the makers are going to replace all the blue stained clothes that all of us have, and to the lady that said a 5 year old can use them, shame on you! Read the directions on the bag, it does not say you have to fill the washer up first, even though I have done this myself and still resulted in blue stains on clothes. Just because you did not get stains does not mean others did not, so don’t start acting like others are stupid and don’t know how to wash clothes, because young lady I do know how to wash clothes! My opinion as the majority of others on here feel they are crap…..

July 27, 2012 at 6:04 pm
(14) mike says:

They are not worth buying…gee the people that say they are good must only do darks in the wash…every white the i have used them on has come out with blue stains!!!…lol…..dont get to use to them im sure tide will be pulling the plug on them soon….

July 28, 2012 at 8:00 pm
(15) Franco says:

I just want to say that I love these pods, the convenience is great…and not a single stain. You should use Woolite for your fine clothes.

August 9, 2012 at 10:38 pm
(16) Jackson says:

This is the finest laundry product that I have ever found. I’m a bachelor who doesn’t like to do laundry and this makes it so much easier. There were no blue stains or sticky residue. I used my front loading Frigidaire washer with cold wash and cold rinse. I put the pod on the bottom of the drum before loading my laundry. I didn’t even separate the whites and colors. I think that some of these reviews were from people who just wanted to complain. (numbers 1, 5, 6 and 13) In the end, they left my clothes clean and smelling great. They make it so that I don’t have to measure detergent. They also make things easier when the neighbors need to borrow from me. The price is higher than regular detergent, but they’re easier and neater. I would strongly suggest them to anyone.

August 12, 2012 at 10:41 pm
(17) Deven says:

I just want to know if it really cleans clothes,do not want my family wearing dirty clothes. How many pods, to about how much in a load for He washers (front loaders)

August 15, 2012 at 1:24 pm
(18) Leyna says:

I tried them and they suck.. I called the complain b.c. it turned all the clothes grey! they are sending me regular tide and i will never buy tide pods again! its also funny b.c. i see all of these comments about turning their clothes grey and the lady said she’s never had a complete of color changes……..

August 16, 2012 at 12:51 pm
(19) Tanya says:

Switched to Alls version. No more purple globs stuck to my clothes and no more stains!

August 21, 2012 at 12:45 pm
(20) Debra Phillip says:

I’ve been washing clothes for many, many years. Nothing like this. Just bought a jar of 90 Tide pods. Used the first one and purple stain on two items. I have a front-loader, so was hoping this would work easier than liquid. I am not happy! They must use some kind of dye in the pods and I wonder why they would! I will be switching back to liquid as soon as possible!

August 30, 2012 at 12:28 pm
(21) Diana says:

I have a new front loader that adds water according to the weight of the clothes IN the washer. It would be impossible to dissolve the pod in the water before adding the clothes. Dissolving it separately would be another step and take away the convenience factor you are paying extra for. Going back to adding liquid in the dispenser………

August 31, 2012 at 11:17 am
(22) KedraMC says:

I’ve washed a few loads with the Tide Pods, and they’re horrible. My clothes appeared not to cleaned at all, by looks nor smell. I even used an extra pod, but got the same results! I never got a stain, though.

September 1, 2012 at 10:43 pm
(23) Che says:

I hate pods, I used in new colored bedsheets and it got spots of color fade. I’m not even satisfied to use in white clothes.

September 7, 2012 at 6:35 pm
(24) Suzanne says:

What a rubbish product. Having used single use pods in the UK for a while I thought these would be a great thing. How wrong I was. They stained so many of my clothes. I have had to chuck them out. The latest was the outer shell not dissolving and getting stuck on the inside of a jumper. It became rock hard in the dryer.

I couldn’t recommend these less!

September 17, 2012 at 11:56 pm
(25) shannan says:

Bought the pods for h e and you are suppossed to be able to drop in with wash…the blue is like a blue dye that will NEVER COME OUT..and not much actual detergent and a 3rd item who knows but it ruined my clothes my families clothes and then I the plastic got stuck on sone shirts and was harder than gum because it dried hard in the dryer..I can’t believe TIDE brand did this.. I like the other brands though

September 22, 2012 at 6:10 pm
(26) Nancy says:

I’m on my second large “bowl” of the pods. They work fine, for the most part for us. (Not on grease stains, which I just spot with dish detergent) but otherwise pretty good. I use cold water for my darks, and have not had any issues with blue stains or with sticky goo. I do have the front loader and have found with any detergent, my clothes can smell musty if I don’t remove them as soon as the machine stops, and using the extra wash and extra rinse for every load helps as well for musty smell odors as the machines don’t always use enough water.

September 23, 2012 at 8:45 pm
(27) Paul says:

Worst product I ever used! What detergent can stain a navy blue uniform? Tide Pods! That is ridiculous and no matter how you wash it the stains don’t come out. Thanks Tide.

September 25, 2012 at 9:56 am
(28) Michelle says:

I don’t know where the confusion is on using these.
I have a top load washer and just did a medium sized load of all whites and no blue stains! Maybe it’s because I actually let the pod dissolve first and know the appropriate load size for my washer. They also came out smelling great I found even more scented than with regular tide detergent.
I do agree that they aren’t great at getting out grease stains but haven’t found a detergent yet that is.

September 27, 2012 at 2:11 pm
(29) Megan says:

I love Pods! My husband is a Farrier (blacksmith who shoes horses) and the smells and stains that his clothes come home with are pretty, well lets just call them….amazing. I have never had any problems with blue staining on our whites and his clothes come out (with 2 pods) fresh and clean smelling! I’ve tried everything else because I just didn’t want the extra expense of Tide but other detergents seem to be either too harsh (everything gets clean but the colors fade) or way too watered down and nothing gets clean. The Pods seem to last a bit longer for me as well, although I’m sure I just got a bit too exuberant about the amount I would use of the liquids when his clothes were REALLY stinky.

(30) Quad Mommy says:

I’ve got 4 kids and I’ve never had a problem with the pods. Maybe because I have a top-loader? I see a lot of people seem to be having trouble with side loaders. I just start the cycle, toss one in and after a couple of minutes, load my laundry. My clothes smell good, never had a blue stain or anything sticking. Delicates got to the cleaners or get washed in Woolite or something. Maybe I’ve just been lucky…

October 8, 2012 at 12:47 pm
(31) Michelle says:

I love these things…..I used them first on vacation in a front loader and they were easy and worked great. When I came home I use the rest left over from vacation. I have a top loader at home. It worked great with all temperatures but I never over load my washing machine! .I put the pods in first and some times I forget and throw them in after I put the clothes in and it works both ways. I have done over 180 loads and only use one pod per wash and my clothes have come out clean and fresh and look great everytime!

October 9, 2012 at 8:40 pm
(32) Lesley says:

I bought the pods back in the beginning of the summer because I loved the convenience of just dropping the pod in the wash and not needing to measure the detergent out. I loved the way they cleaned my clothes. They definitely work better than regular detergent. Now for the bad, after about a dozen loads, I removed a shirt from the laundry to find a pod stuck on the shirt. I made the mistake of pulling it apart, thus ripping the shirt. OK, my bad. I thought that if I used hotter temperatures and less clothes, I would avoid this in the future. Now my machine is about a year old, front loading HE. About a week or too later, I see the same thing again. This time I try washing it, after multiple times it finally rinsed out. I played this game for a couple weeks until finally I wrote to Tide. They indicated that I should use smaller loads and very hot water, which I already was, but thought OK, I’ll bite. They also told me to rinse in hot water and the pod would release. So now, I’m not saving time with these awesome pods, since I have to do more laundry, waste hotter water, review load prior to placing in dryer and finally rinsing in hot water and repeating process!!!! I gave up and went back to liquid. And for the women that claims you can “dissolve it first then put cloths in”, I’m not sure how that works with your front load machine, but since mine weighs the clothes to determine how long to put the wash on, this is impossible to do. I don’t find the problem with the boost pods, probably because most of the product is powdered, I think it’s the blue in the pods is causing the problems. Hope they can fix them!!

October 16, 2012 at 1:46 pm
(33) Eddy says:

These are going to dissolve if you’ve got a top loader but a lot of HE machines don’t use enough water no matter the temp to completely dissolve the pod. Using up my bag of them by dissolving first and going back to regular Tide. Procter and Gamble needs to make improvements before I recommend these to anybody!

October 17, 2012 at 8:53 pm
(34) Mike says:

A couple comments..

1. Tide Pods have got to be the worst laundry detergent i have ever purchased. I can relate to all the people who have had issues with them.
I have stopped buying them. As someone else has put it… love the idea, hate the product.

2. After reading these comments and seeing the ones where the pods are being defended, I have to ask… why would you want to buy a detergent that you have to dissolve in water BEFORE you add clothes? AND have any of you people used a front load washing machine before?? You CANNOT let it fill with water to dissolve the pod before you add your clothes… come on, use your head.

October 19, 2012 at 9:55 am
(35) mary fernandez says:

i bought them thought they were cute and easy to use! took me a couple of times before i figured out what was ruining my clothes comforter pillowcases and a new pair of black pants! I thought it was candy or gum in laundry, but this stuff was so hard to get out i had to scrub and peel it off which after that caused the garments to have a faded spot. i would double rinse and still wouldnt come off so i was also wasting lots of water!! I do not recommend this product!!

October 21, 2012 at 7:50 pm
(36) mindy says:

for the guy that said I just wanted to complain, sorry this is not true, I called the company and the person that I talked to said this happens more than not, as you see in these reviews there are more complaints then ones that liked them, I would rather someone be honest about a product than dishonest………

November 8, 2012 at 12:13 pm
(37) glohampton says:

Bought the 35-CT tide pods and I couldn’t wait till It was all gone. It didn’t leave stains on my whites and dissolving was not a problem. “But” o-m-g if I forgot to start the machine it gave such a horrible stench. I’d have to ad like 4 -5 pods. It didn’t feel like my clothes were being washed. I’m going back to my powdered Tide..
Using 4-5 pods, not cost effective. :’(

November 11, 2012 at 11:39 am
(38) Naomi says:

So I had a bag of these before and thought they were great, so I bought another one. Yesterday I realized that the pod had left a big oily mark on one of my pairs of pants feeling like I had wiped my Chapstick all over it. And today I did another load in them and figured I’d just put them on a 2nd rinse cycle making sure all of the detergent was out, but no when I go to put the clothing in the dryer there is the plastic wrapper stuck to the inside of one of my hoodies with all of the blue detergent still inside. I’m hoping that doesn’t stain or I will be getting a refund for my pods and my brand new abercrombie hoodie. Glad I caught it before I put the clothes in the dryer, I heard it hardens like a rock.

November 11, 2012 at 2:55 pm
(39) Darrina says:

Wow I’m impressed by the negative comments. I have used the tide pods in front load washers and top load washers and I would recommend this product , which I have been doing! I hate washing the measuring carrying a detergent bottle along with all of those clothes or even just carrying a jug of detergent with groceries is hectic! I love the idea of just tossing it! It works great as a stain removal and leaves my clothes fresh and clean! Now I love washing thank u proctor and gamble for creating the tide pods! :)

November 11, 2012 at 3:07 pm
(40) Darrina says:

I am Shocked by the negative comments! I hate to wash and tide pods made me love washing!! I’ve used them in front load and top load washers, and the results were very clean and fresh! I have always hated measuring detergent or carrying the detergent bottle with loads of clothes and even more with groceries. No more carrying a gallon of milk in one hand and a gallon of detergent! I like that u can put the pods in a bag. Thank u proctor and gamble for creating tide pods!

November 13, 2012 at 12:34 am
(41) Jennifer says:

I’ve used Tide Pods since my Costco started carrying them (several months, several containers). I’ve used them in and old top loader, a new HE top loader, cold, warm, and hot temp, heavy to delicate cycles, and never put more effort into it than throwing in the pod and piling my clothes on top. I LOVE this product. I’ve NEVER had an issue with stained clothes, and I am a TERRIBLE launderer. The only time my pod didn’t desolate, I had stuffed my washer. My clothes always smell fresh (unless I leave them in over a day, and that is by fault of the HE washer, not the pods… I did the research :) ) My clothes have always come out bright. For difficult stains, I of course treat first, but everyday wear comes out in one wash. I used to put wayyyy too much detergent in, just bc I was determind that tiny little but in the cup wasn’t enough. Now I can throw in a pod without thinking about the measurements. I’m not wasting detergent (saving lots of money and wear on my machine) and my clothes are just as fresh and clean if not more so than before, I am extremely confused by the negative remarks in here, bc if anyone could screw up using these easy little packs, it would be me. :)

November 15, 2012 at 10:57 am
(42) KathieMT says:

I am one that will never buy this product again.

The directions do not say to dissolve before adding clothes.

I have had blue stains on white clothing, sticky “plastic” residue stuck to clothing and to the washer, odor in the washer if you try and soak a load overnight, some loads (especially towels) have a chemical odor unless the towels are double rinsed, the “bleached” marks on the gray and blue towels and these clothes are not clean and even develop an odor in the closet or on the shelf.

Lots of luck on getting any refund from Tide. I am going back to All.

November 20, 2012 at 3:13 am
(43) Annie says:

I have an HE front loader, but if you follow the directions and put them in the bottom of the washer 1st, I have never had a problem with it not dissolving. I think they work wonderfully with no spilling or measuring and using too much.

November 27, 2012 at 10:04 pm
(44) Kate says:

I’ve used them for several months in a front loader, HE washer. Recently, however, I’ve found they are not dissolving completely, and then the melts onto my clothes in the dryer. Not happy at all. Going to donate what I have left to the animal shelter and go back to liquid Tide.

November 30, 2012 at 6:47 pm
(45) Kate says:

I found a way to get the fused plastic off my clothes. I boiled water and put some vinegar in it then put the item in there to soak. It softened and melted the plastic and I was able to use a soft brush and get it off. Will never buy the pods (anyones) again

December 5, 2012 at 11:01 pm
(46) RumDiv says:

I was given a free sample. Placed it in the washing machine. Then thought, wait, let me read some reviews first. I found this site, read the awful problems, promptly got up, removed the pod. Tossed it in the trash can and used my regular Gain powder. Thanks for the warnings!!

December 6, 2012 at 11:01 pm
(47) Teri says:

I used Purex pods for many months with no problems. Don’t know why I decided to try the Tide pods when I saw them, just the reputation of Tide I guess. It has been awful. They don’t dissolve and I have stains on my clothes. I even have problems with my very new HE front loading washing machine getting stuck on its cycle because it thinks something is wrong. The cycle either gets stuck or when it’s done the clothes are half wet, half totally dry as if they haven’t even been through a wash cycle. I don’t care what I paid for them I’m throwing them away

December 8, 2012 at 4:54 pm
(48) Kristin says:

I got a free sample of a tide pod on our liquid tide detergent so i decided to use it on one if my loads of laundry to see how they worked.i have a top load washer and MADE SURE the pod was fully dissolved before i put my clothes in. after drying my clothes and as i was putting them away i noticed blue stains all over my brand new hollister pink pants. i only wore them once and now they are ruined. i have tried everything to get the stain out but it will not come out! i am VERY disappointed with this product and think i should get my $40 back for my brand new jeans that tide destroyed!! just from this experiance, i dont think i will ever be using tide products again. i dont have the money to waste on clothing that is going to get ruined.

December 17, 2012 at 12:33 pm
(49) BJ says:

I have a HE washer and I tried a sample of tide pod sent to me. I threw the pod in the washer. I was however surprised when there was oily residue in my softener compartment. I had to wipe it with a towel, it was very sticky.
Has anyone experienced the same thing?
I bought a packet of tide pods which I would be returning today.

December 29, 2012 at 5:04 pm
(50) Leanne says:

I like them a lot and will buy again. I also bought a large package of the pods and have been using them for 2 months. My whites are much whiter and old stains are gone. I especially like the pods for stain removal and for nice clean and whiter undies and bedding. I use mostly cold water for laundry. Start filling the tub and make sure to toss in the pod early before adding the clothes. That way the pod has plenty of time to dissolve. before the cycle starts.

December 30, 2012 at 8:43 am
(51) Tracy says:

I have tried these in towels. Whites. Darks. All types of laundry loads. This may work great for top loading washers but NOT in front opening high efficiency machines. There is not enough water to dissolve the skin completely or the high concentration of soap.

January 8, 2013 at 10:25 pm
(52) Susan says:

Extremely disappointed with these pods. I initially tried a sample and loved the fragrance and I decided to trade my tried and trusted laundry detergent for something new.

Today I used them in four wash loads of towels, mats, dark clothes and light clothes. My towels and mats turned out a dull and dingy shade of their original color. The light clothes also turned out a grey version of their original white.

Not happy and I am returning to my tried and trusted detergent which has always served me well.

January 15, 2013 at 10:48 pm
(53) Patty says:

I bought the pods at my local Costco and, at first, I absolutely loved the smell of my laundry! I then began noticing that they were not dissolving and were leaving blue gummy residue all over my clothes that is impossible to remove! I have a front loader that will not let me fill up with water before adding clothes so it’s back to the drawing board for me! I won’t be buying these again but I would love to know how I could get the same scent from another product! Shame on Tide!

January 24, 2013 at 4:11 pm
(54) |Lisa says:

Add another disappointed customer to the list. Sticky blue crap everywhere!! Sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn’t, is it really worth the risk? And to those of you saying to fill the washer with water first and swish it around before adding clothes, are you serious?? First of all how do you do this with a front load washer?? And second these pods are supposed to make life a bit easier not give us MORE work! Pull your head out of your nether regions, this product sucks!

January 26, 2013 at 7:15 pm
(55) Carol from Tennessee says:

I was having the same problem with the Tide Pods so I stopped using them and bought All Pods…Same issue…Blue plastic gunk on my clothes…I just removed a set of sheets from the dryer to find the fitted sheet all stuck together with Blue gunk…If you try to pull the spots apart, you tear the fabric…I’m done! Going back to liquid..By the way I have a front loading HE washer and followed the directions on the bag.

January 26, 2013 at 9:18 pm
(56) Cheryl Marsh says:

Tide pods just ruined a king size mattress pad and a king size sheet. Had been using them for about two weeks with no problem. Two different loads. Front loader. Pods were put in first, then the pad/sheet. Evidently the pod didn’t dissolve very well. The sheet was the first load and I put it back in the washer, thinking it was just the color. Then when I got the mattress pad out of the dryer I found one big glob that had adhered to the pad and a lot of smaller pieces. I’m going back to liquid Tide, but this was an expensive experiment.

January 29, 2013 at 4:01 am
(57) Julie Heath says:

I used the tide pods and the plastic melted in several loads. I try to remind my oldest to remove the packet before drying. It has nothing to do with OVER loading! I’ve tested this theory.. I think it has to do with HE washing machines not producing enough water to dissolve the packs. Sadly!

February 1, 2013 at 8:15 pm
(58) Kate says:

I have been using PODS for awhile, but have recently been having the same issues with blue staining. It is NOT user error. I wonder if Tide has changed the formula or the dye. Both of my kids had a major growth spurt and I washed a ton of brand new clothes that are now ruined. I called Tide and was given instructions on how to get the stains out (so clearly this is a common issue) but it did not work at all. I spent 3 hours of my day trying to get out stains left by a laundry detergent. Does anyone else see the absurdity of that? Given that there are many complaints of this issue and Tide is basically ignoring them and/or blaming the consumer, I’m switching brands entirely.

Why didn’t I read comments before buying this product!!! Just took my very best sheets out of the washer and you guessed it —blue stains all over them! I have H E front loading brand new machine. Tide should replace my sheets. VERY angry!!

(60) Marilyn says:

I have been using the pods and really like them, however Ive been having an issue with melted plastic (?) on some of my clothes. First I thought it was something in my dryer, but now I’ve found the embedded plastic in shirts I’ve hung dry. I figure it has to be the tide pods. Now I see someone elses has had the same issues. Thank goodness I only ruined two shirts and not more. Disappointed in the produce.

(61) Cunningham says:

ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!! Plastic did not dissolve and ruined new sheets I had just purchased as well as blue stain all over clothing! DONOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! PURE CRAP!

Tide pods..itch, itchy, itch, itch!

(63) Emma says:

AWFUL but smell wonderful. I bought them just to try it out….seemed like a good idea. I have a front load washer, sometimes the pod gets stuck in the door therefore all the detergent does not go to the laundry and just sits there in a sticky mess. I DO FOLLOW directions and put the pod in first then my clothes. Also one of my white shirts had a large BLUE hard mess on it after it was “washed”, part of the pod that did not dissolve had stuck to it. The only positive note I have to say is I love the purple label SPRING scent. It would be fantastic if Tide would make this scent in a normal liquid container. I am a Gain fan and always have been but I would switch over to Tide if they offered this scent in the liquid form otherwise don’t waste your money on the pods. They are more of a pain then helpful.

(64) Rerun says:

I received two pods as samples in the mail. I have a front load washer (High Efficiency) and it says that you can use them in it. I washed as instructed and my husband’s white sweat shirt had a perfect sticky circle in light blue all creased and stuck together on the front of the shirt when I removed it from the washing machine. I had used warm water. I
couldn’t figure out what it was and I realized a few days later that I had used the Tide pod. I tried washing the shirt again in warm water to see if it would dissolve the circle but nothing happened – it is still sticky and cannot be either worn or put in a drawer because everything else sticks to it!

(65) ldawg says:

Not happy. I have a top-load he washer and they leave globs on my clothes. I prefer All anyway.

But to the person upset about blood stain, NEVER use hot water on blood. Never, ever, ever. Once you add heat to blood, it cooks it right into the fabric and it’s there forever. Make sure the stain is lout before you put it in the dryer, too. Rookie mistake even Tide can’t fix.

(66) Tawnya says:

HATE HATE HATE TIDE PODS!!! great idea, BAD PRODUCT!! 1 fleece blanket trashed, 1 comforter trashed! the pods DIDNOT work, melted to the items. top load HE washer, with this washer there isn’t a way to add water then clothes! will NEVER use tide pods again!

March 24, 2013 at 6:43 pm
(67) Kristina says:

Really wanted these to work, but I’m having the same issues as many others with the pod not dissolving. Ruined a few shirts before I figured it out. Great idea, but I’m going to try another brand.

March 27, 2013 at 9:40 pm
(68) Darcy says:

Ok folks…..what am I missing here? Have an LG front loader, been using the pods for a long time…never had a problem with them not dissolving, leaving stains, ect….however my mom has a speed queen at her apartment and they seem to be having issues with them disolving…could it be the way the machine fills with water….top VS bottom…just a thought…..

March 31, 2013 at 8:17 pm
(69) Margrit Ho says:

I bought a 14 pack of Tide pods, just to try. They are terrible. I tried it in a small and a medium load. There were no suds, the pod did not totally dissolve. I did one load in cold water and the other in warm. These pods are very expensive. I will not buy them again or recommend them to anyone. I stick to your Tide liquid. M.

April 1, 2013 at 1:15 pm
(70) Christine says:

I absolutely hate TIDE PODS!!! My darling husband thought he was helping by treating me to a large bucket of TIDE PODS. I nearly ruined a load of yellow and beige clothing as the blue in the pods stained all the clothes but a couple of articles. I happened to see a golf shirt as it was going into the dryer and emptied the dryer immediately. I sprayed everything with Spray and Wash and washed the load again with Sunlight liquid detergent that we bought to wash the dogs blankets and towels with. I subsequently washed a load of machine washable dress shirts of my husband’s and luckily again found the blue stains before I ran the dryer and was able to save all but one shirt. I certainly don’t want the issue of having to wait until the pods dissolve and have to mix the water around in the tub before adding the clothes. I also did not find my whites were white with the PODS. The most horrifying experience with the PODS was when I accidentally stuck my hand in the bucket with some water on my hand and 50% of the PODS stuck together and were ruined. I now use the rest of the PODS to wash the dog blankets and towels and can’t wait until they are gone! I will NEVER use this product again!

(72) Leigh says:

I have now gone through two packages of Tide Pods and will never buy a third. I have never thrown out so many clothes due to stains that weren’t removed in the wash. I have always loved Tide liquid laundry soap but these Pods are only great if you want all your clothes ruined.

April 3, 2013 at 10:09 am
(73) Angel says:

I love the pods! I wash a lot of my laundry in cold water and so far no problems. However, recently a friend of my mine told her that her appliance repair man said that the pods are causing washers to stop up. As of now, I am thinking about not using them. They are so easy and convient.

April 4, 2013 at 5:40 pm
(74) Shelley says:

I also am having issues with my tide pods, I have always used Tide powder original scent for over 25 years and have never had any issues with dirt remaining on my husbands jeans but with the pods his jeans come out of the washer looking just as bad as they did when I put them in. The sad part is I bought 3 boxes of 105 ct. at Sams Club and 2 boxes remain so as not to waste the pods I have had to add borax to each load to clean the jeans.

One very unhappy Tide lover!

April 8, 2013 at 12:24 pm
(75) Angie says:

I switched to the pods because I LOVED the concept. I have NEVER had trouble doing laundry until the pods! I have a Samsung front load HE washer and i have found plastic and blue gunk in the rubber of the washer, I have found clothes stuck together and essentially ruined in the dryer ( when I didn’t catch it before the dryer) and just yesterday I washed my cloth shower curtain and rugs and it ruined the curtain. I got it “unstuck” from itself but there are 2 blue stains and a small hole. My husband has found underwear and socks that are ruined too!! I have tried small loads, large loads, hot water and cold water!! I have enough to worry about in my day than trying to figure out the “perfect” way to make the pods not ruin our laundry!! I’ll be switching back to liquid where there is NO issue and switching from Tide all together!

(77) Denise says:

A month ago I ruined a brand new set of $100.00 sheets and I figured it was user error perhaps I didn’t dissolve the pod. Today I ruined 4 new Nordstrom white men’s dress shirts at $50.00 per shirt. I had dissolved the pods and made sure the clear wrap fully dissolved. The shirts all have oil type stains on them. I wonder how many people wash long sleeve white cotton shirts, most people take those to the cleaners. I haven’t had any problems with towels etc. I surely will not be buying these again, convenience or not.

April 30, 2013 at 11:54 am
(78) sthrnboy1970 says:

Finally decided to try these when they were on sale at the supermarket. Waste of money. I followed the instructions and washed a load of bath towels in hot water. The towels did not smell clean, especially compared to when they are washed in conventional Tide. I hesitate to use the pods on clothing, especially after reading some of the other comments. I think they still need a little more work.

I won’t use them again. I have a front load washer and the cycle was finished and low and behold what was under the window but my POD!! It never even melted!!! It was only a small load of white things. I got the blue dye thing and also no smell of anything on my finished load…Sorry but gone back to liquid!!!

Absolutely HORRIBLE!!! How can a laundry detergent that is supposed to clean clothes actuallty stain them instead?!! It boggles my mind that Proctor and Gamble would leave this product on the market! I have had 2 loads of laundry stained with orange and blue dots! When I called Proctor and Gamble they told me a very complicated way to try and get the stains out including using rubbing alcohol. Josh said they have done extensive research as to how to best remove the stains left by the tide pods! WHAT they are actually spending money on how to remove stains left by a laundry detergent that is supposed to clean clothes???? This product should be removed! I am furious, that I have clothes ruined by a laundry detergent and the best TIDE could do was give me two coupons for free tide! What about the cost of the clothes ruined? I will never buy any Tide product again!

May 26, 2013 at 11:30 am
(83) Steve says:

Weird. Maybe too much wine during laundry time for these ‘ladies’. I’m a 58 year old bachelor, and Tide Pods work great for me. No stains, no muss no fuss, just toss in a pod, turn on the water, then add your clothes and it just works. It’s just laundry detergent in a water soluble skin. Don’t be silly.

June 2, 2013 at 8:43 am
(84) Carol says:

I came to this site because I was looking for a way to get the melted plastic-like stuff off of my clothes. I have a new knit sweater that has a hard piece of the plastic melted right into the front of it. I have been soaking that spot it hot water and it won’t budge. I also have blue streaks and blobs all over white pants, and towels. I have a front loading washer and put the Pod in before the clothes, like it says on the package. Maybe that is the issue, because the first few times I used these and I tossed them in on the top of the clothes, I didn’t have the issue. I will go back to trying that method and if it doesn’t work I will have to go back to the Purex pods. I used them for over a year without an issue. However, I don’t think they got my clothes as clean as Tide Pods. But I cannot have all of these ruined clothes, either.

June 2, 2013 at 12:15 pm
(85) Tia says:

I’m so glad I only purchased a sample bag of Pods, because I will never purchase the full sized product. These things are horrible. After following the directions on the package precisely, I had to soak at least 1 item from every load in very hot water in order to loosen the hardened pod casing from the fabric, even then, not all of it will come completely out of the fibers. The only way I can use Pods without them damaging my fabrics is to completely dissolve them in very hot water BEFORE adding it to my laundry. Never again will I use one of these!

June 3, 2013 at 4:31 pm
(86) Melissa says:

My stepdaughter had the blue stain issue today with a $25 shirt she JUST bought from Disney Land. I immediately rewashed with a load of her father’s clothes using hypoallergenic tide (just a little) and a cup of white distilled vinegar. Took the stain right out. Hope this helps some of you! Also, I have been reading reviews of the plastic clogging drain pipes, so buyer beware!

June 5, 2013 at 12:38 pm
(87) b morton says:

i bought my last container of tide pods, going back to liquid tide……horrible results……pods don’t dissolve completely and if you don’t see it, it is permanent damage to your clothes. come on tide folks you can do better than this!

June 6, 2013 at 4:44 pm
(88) Sharron says:

I feel very blessed that I never had any issues with the Pods. My clothes were clean, no staining, etc, however the medical side effects have been bad. My granddaughters legs are broken out, my neighbors back is all broken out, and I have had problems with symptoms of a yeast infection. My doctor says it is NOT, but had I changed detergents, and I always double rinse my clothes. I have about 40 of the pods left, but they are going out for the trash, I can’t think of anyone I dislike enough to give them to.

June 8, 2013 at 12:29 pm
(89) Crystal says:

I will not EVER buy this product again. Most of them were sticking together, when you try to pull them apart they all bust open. And on top of that many were already busted and liquid sitting in the bottom of tub. So basically you only get a 1/3 of what you pay for. A BIG WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!!

June 14, 2013 at 1:00 pm
(90) Maria says:

I am never buying the Tide PODS again. Its a waste of money.
The PODS do not desolve completely in HE washer. I tried loading the machine less and all my washer are with hot water and still the PODs did not disolve. and if you miss some piece of clothing with this gel on it and dry it forget the piece of clothing is ruin.
Very disappointed.

June 28, 2013 at 10:38 am
(91) Dee Dee Strong says:

I have been using them for a couple of months. The first time I used them, one my navy blue t shirts had bleach like stains on it so I had to throw it out. I thought maybe this was just a coincident so I kept using them. They seem to be fine on my whites but this week I used a pod on my permanent press clothes and there were holes in one of my shirts. again, I thought this couldn’t be the pod so I used them again. Again another t shirt came out with a couple of small holes in it. I have had to throw out a large packet of them. I do not recommend these pods to anyone!!!!

June 28, 2013 at 10:43 am
(92) Dee Dee says:

Not only have the pods stained my clothes, but I have also been finding small holes in my t shirts. I had to throw out a large packet and have returned to using liquid detergent. Horrible product!!! :(

June 28, 2013 at 11:03 am
(93) Angie says:

I have been using it for several months now and it has been and terrible mistake switching to the PODS. it doesn’t happen all the time, but it sticks to the clothes and then for me to get it out. I have to boil water and pour it where it has stuck and brush it off with a hard bristle brush.
it only works if you just put a little quantity of clothes in the washing machine.
I am switching back to liquid detergent, for sure.

July 7, 2013 at 10:57 am
(94) Kate says:

Well, the idea of Tide pods is great – but the execution is a mess. For me, the problem is that the skin doesn’t dissolve in water (put in the top loading HE washer before the clothes, and not overloaded). So, depending on how much dissolves and when, you can get the blue spots and/or the gooey pod skin stuck on your clothes. Once it goes in the dryer, it’s all over…but if you catch it before you can usually save the clothes.

July 18, 2013 at 7:48 pm
(95) Howl says:

Have been using Tide Pods for about three months or more with no problems, and I’m about 2/3 through my second container of 72 pods using a front loader. We use cold, warm or hot water depending on what is being washed. Load clothes, throw a Pod on top, close the door and wash.
Then this week, in two different wash loads, a shirt came out of the dryer with hard plastic goo dried on it that I was not able to remove. I puzzled over this and thought that it might be the “skin” from the pod. When I started reading the reviews on this Web site, I realized I came to the correct conclusion. I’ll try soaking in hot vinegar water and rewashing repeatedly. Terrible product design. Fortunately we’ve not been plagued with the blue stain issue.
I’m going back to powder.

July 19, 2013 at 4:00 pm
(96) Shannon says:

Tide pods are terrible!! They say they work in HE washers so I bought some to try and have had issues every load I’ve used them!! They leave soap residue on everything leaving me to re rinse every load which takes extra time and money when you have to pay for water!!! I would not recommend them to anyone with an HE washer!!!

July 21, 2013 at 7:09 pm
(97) AnneMarie says:

I used these with NO problems since the day they came out, in cold water, in a TOP load HE machine. As soon as I switched to a super high efficiency HE front loader it all went to *&*^! I ruined several pieces of laundry when the packet simply didn’t dissolve and stuck to clothes, hidden here and there, and then perm. set to the clothing in the dryer. The purple is actually bluing, artificial ultramarine that allows whites to been seen as WHITER by our eyes. When not rinsed properly or distributed properly it stains.

The front load HE machines simply just do NOT have enough water going to get the PODS going.

Tide Replaced all my pods with normal powder. I miss my pods. Oh well.

August 29, 2013 at 6:09 pm
(98) j says:

SUCKS!!! Tide pods are the worst product i purchased as yet. It melted on to all the other pods and became a soggy mess!!! stains my whites and it didn’t have a clean smell GARBAGE.
Returned for refund!!!

September 29, 2013 at 10:32 am
(99) Josephine says:

I kept on noticing that my husband’s white undershirts had blue stains on them. I din’t think it was the tide pods. After a few weeks of adding new undershirts to the batch I noticed that they too had blue stains. Very upset and expensive to keep on replacing the undershirts. I thought that it was the best invention ever but was I wrong. Now I know that it was the pods that ruined some of his work shirts on not stains that I thought were caused by a pen. I love tide but the pods gotta go.

September 30, 2013 at 10:53 pm
(100) Christine says:

I believe this is just a scam from Tide’s corporate to use little of their product while cashing in. Our families clothes look and smell clean but sniffing them deeper only does the truth reveals itself. The stench dirty clothes still seaps.

At first, I thought it may of been the washer machine since I live in an apartment and washing my clothes there which they had a tendency to break down. Wearing these “washed” clothes revealed the smell but it wasn’t so strong. Later on, did I find my mother washing the towels in her home washer and they too had that same dirty smell!

This is a horrible product! I will stick to using the detergent brand ONLY!

October 5, 2013 at 10:50 pm
(101) HeatherCanuck says:

I liked the Tide Pods because they left my front-load washer laundry smelling fresh. It took me a while to figure out that the pod casing doesn’t always dissolve and left a goopy mess that dries to rubber in the dryer. I can’t get that stuff out of my clothes! I run my washer on the longest cycle with warm & cold water.

October 11, 2013 at 2:25 pm
(102) John says:

I have been using Tide Pods almost exclusively for about 2 years now and have done approximately 250-300 loads of laundry with the pods and think they are an amazing product.

I have used the pods in both normal top loading and front loading high efficiency washers and have never had an issue with stains etc.

Only once in my old top loading washer did the pod not dissolve.I opened the lid to see the pod floating in the water and had to manually break it apart with my hand.It must’ve been a dud pod.Not bad after 300 pods used.

Great product and I will continue to use Tide pods.

October 30, 2013 at 12:39 am
(103) Theresa says:

Tide pods ruined my sons favorite shirt! It looked like super glue had got into his shirt! Other clothes are also are ruined!

November 6, 2013 at 9:49 pm
(104) Mene says:

I wish I read reviews on the PODS same thing you would think their marketing department would read these on the internet and make a change. One thing I didn’t see ANYONE remark is to call and request a refund? I did. Ok it doesn’t add up to the cost of damaged goods but that is my next step.

December 29, 2013 at 12:36 am
(105) Sherry says:

Wish I’d read the reviews first….followed directions, hot water, small load and you guessed it. Two of my son’s best shirts ruined with the sticky plastic glue looking mess. Crappy product.

(106) designer says:

Not that I have tried Tide Pods, as they seem a bit too good to be true…., but I did suggest a promo idea for Tides and got a response that they would not consider it i.e. “non-user friendly”…. they told me that any ideas for commercials, etc. had to come from WITHIN their advertising department and any outside ideas would not be considered. Excuse me… we are the ones buying your product… you might want to listen to us!!!!! Get with the program TIDE!!!

January 19, 2014 at 4:13 pm
(107) Kiersten says:

I have been using these for a year now. I really like how convenient they are and i think the clean well… BUT for some reason they stain my clothes with dark blue/purple and they are impossible to get out and they also stick to my clothes like glue and harden up like a rock! I have had to throw so many clothes away and i don’t buy cheap clothes. I am switching after this box.

January 27, 2014 at 11:31 am
(108) Sheri says:

I do not over-fill my front loader and I have had the same problem with Tide pods staining my husband’s white shirts. These dress shirts can be very expensive! I am very disappointed to see that after all of these comments, Tide (who I am sure is aware of these reviews) is ignoring this problem and still putting this in these pods! I have used Tide for over 30 years and I will have to find another detergent.

February 9, 2014 at 2:24 pm
(109) Barbara says:

I can’t fill my tub with water to dissolve the pod first because as soon as I push “start” on my machine the lid locks…I have to wash my dark clothes 2 and 3 times before i get the stains off..I, too, am itching like a crazy person and i never have before from Tide…Terrible, terrible product…………

February 13, 2014 at 12:44 pm
(110) Dorothy says:

I have been using tide pods and discovered that the tide powder is way better, pods make your clothes and machine stink.pods didnt remove stains as advertised, powder is the best, still, new is not always better.

I’ve had the same problem with pods….not dissolving. going through dryer…impossible to get out once dried in. Going to have to pre-dissolve.

February 24, 2014 at 9:04 pm
(113) Sharon says:

Terrible. All our white tees and under ware now have a purplish pink tinge to them. Even though I always wash them in hot water with Clorox bleach. My sheets are stained beyond repair. Over loading is not the problem. I washed one set of sheets and the pod stuck to them creating large stains on the sheets

February 25, 2014 at 12:00 am
(114) Karen says:

Just got a new h/e machine and found out it was okay to use the tide pods, which is what we have been using in the old machine. Bad idea, exactly what the other reviews said, does not fully dissolve and left a blue stain on my brand new shirt. Tide should warn people

February 25, 2014 at 6:40 am
(115) taminator013 says:

I don’t understand why anyone would waste money on these. It seems to me that if you need to partially fill your machine and let them dissolve before loading your clothes would take more time than it would to measure your detergent and just dump it in at any point. I use the cheapest detergent that is on sale and add about a tablespoon of STPP (sodium tripolyphosphate). The clothes come out clean and fresh with no musty smell just like in the old days before junk science and environazis had phosphates removed from detergent. This additive will also clean out the buildup of gunk (surfactants, dirt, body oils) in the piping and waterpump of the machine. The STPP can also be used in the dishwasher to prevent the waterspotting and buildup. 1/4 teaspoon in the wash and prewash. It is available at soapgoods.com and a number of other places.

March 3, 2014 at 7:08 am
(116) Leisa says:

I found these comments after having my own issues with these pod and wondering if any other has experienced same. While the convenience of these is undeniable, I have experienced a huge problem with them dissolving fully. The result is washed articles that are ‘glued’ together in spots with a rock hard residue.

As I love the convenience, I stuck with it, but the failure rate of these packets is too high to be further bothered with these. The convenience factor is undermined by the “ugh, I have to rewash this factor”.
