Cons

Best Uses
Comment:
Undissolved pods leave a sticky residue that ruins clothes. Only happens to me when using delicate cycle. I think if using a setting for delicate items, the pod has to go into the washer before the clothes. Probably better to use a liquid detergent, and not take a chance of damage. Using new front load washer.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
My wife and I love these pods! They clean well, get stains out (we have a 1.5 year old so there are plenty of stains) and they are EASY! I watched it dissolve ... after it moves around the tub a couple of times, the packing pops ... takes less than 20 seconds after washer gets moving. Highly recommend! Scent is fine too...it's not that strong at all. Clothes smell much more like Bounce dryer sheets that we use than the detergent. These pods are awesome.

Comment:
This was my first experience with the new pod packs. Costco had them on sale at a price equal to 11.6 cents per load. I have been satisfied with other Kirkland detergents but wow these stink. Refreshing Scent! not! Have that fragrance note that is in some colognes like Michael Jordan that some people must like but I would describe as farty. I will probably return them or give to my ex-wife.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
