Comment:
These pods are so handy. The cleaning power is good, although I still find some stains that are left. My big complaint: I started finding residue on my dark colored clothes - white sticky smears that were very hard to remove. They appeared on the clothes that I washed in cold water. So, now I am disolving the packet while the washer is adding water, and throw away the outer skin. This is a nuisance. I will go back to liquid Tide.

I was so perplexed as to why my clothes were coming out with these hard globs that are impossible to remove. Tonight after taking a favorite blanket from the dryer, I noticed a gooey glob on it that looked like the hard globs I had been finding on my sheets, baby blankets, towels, etc. <br />I will go back to liquid soap and never use these again!!! Very disappointed in TIDE for selling a product that ruins my clothing and linens!!!!!!
