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.

Easy To Use
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
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
does not completely dissolve
Gets Stains Out
Pkg Does Not Dissolve
i thought this was a fabulous detergent, except that the<br />packaging does not always dissolve, which means it goes into the dryer, and melts into clothing and ruins the clothing....<br />very disappointing
