Comment:
I am finding myself washing and rinsing twice using these things. I will never purchase again. I heard good things about Kirkland products, but these are just bad. The plastic not only doesn't dissolve when I have used them over 85% of the time, they leave residue all over my clothing causing me to have to wash/rinse a 2nd time. Not happy at all with this product. Going to attempt to return and go back to my Gain.

Comment:
I have used these pods for a couple years, have a front loading machine and have only good things to say about the product. It works on cold, warm loads and everything I wash comes out looking great. Note, I do tend to wash large loads and haven't noticed a strong scent after washing. I also have excema and have to be careful what kind of products I buy for anything that touches my skin. I haven't had any problems at all with this product.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I wanted to try these new-fangled pod thingies so I bought these based on CR's reviews. BIG mistake. Had a couple that never fully dissolved and left permanent blue stains on white towels. Hated the heavy scent and they really didn't clean well in my top-load machine. But the worst problem was that one of the pods leaked in the container and ruined half of them. I had to toss the rest- what a waste of money. Costco never responded to my email, either.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
