Tide usually gets the tough dirt and stains from our clothes. Between sweat, dirt, food, spit up or blow out diaper residue, 9 times out of 10 Tide can handle it. I love that it simply smells clean, not too overwhelming. The spout is very easy to use, just be sure to open the vent at the top. Sometimes the spout will drip after use, and I don't like that the cup can't clip back on the spout due to dripping detergent.
