Comment:
I am truly disappointed in Tide. Two articles of of my clothing have been ruined. Very rarely does the pod dissolve completely. I have to soak or rewash articles of clothing in very hot water in order to dissolve the chunky sticky residue the pods leave on the clothing or bedding.

A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I always had a top loader washer and and always used Tide my mother and grandmother over 40 years swear by Tide.Then the Pods came out, thought well I will give it a try.So glad I did no more measuring!!!That was good and when it came to 72 washers for about the same cost even better!!Now my washer quit had to buy new one so I thought I would try a Front Loader well it take me couple day to get use to a washer with a brain but I love it!So I learn I could use my TIde Pods I put my clothes in throw my Tide Pod in back of washer and the magic begun!My clothes came out Great and cleaner!!!I I Don't work for Tide but love it!!<br />I'm trying to thing of a con on the pod but Sorry can't think of a one!
