Tide PODS® Free and Gentle Laundry Detergent -- my husband and I have not been using this product long enough to really want a full review which is why we gave it three stars versus four or five. In the past, my husband has not liked tide because he would break out on his upper arm skin after putting on a t-shirt that has been washed in time. But, I decided to give tide another try since they have the 'Free and Gentle' options now. Our typical go to is actually -- all® free clear mighty pacs® Laundry Detergent 72 Loads 50.7 oz. Pouch

I purchased the Free and Gentle pods because my family is addicted to the ease of not have to measure liquid or powder and deal with that mess. We love using the free and Gentle because of our new edition. Baby has no issues with the detergent and gets clothes clean in a breeze. I noticed other people mentioning the difficulty with cold water but we've never had this issue (admittedly maybe something to do with our hard water?). This stuff even works well on baby's cloth diapers. Highly recommend.

Review for: And Pacs 81-Load Tub more...
Before purchasing I read through reviews, looked at prices, read the stickers on the actual product... and I’m SUPER disappointed. I LOVE Tide and I think their products are effective BUT I have HATED the fact that these pods DO NOT dissolve in cold water (like it says and one reason people have recommended them). They have left a sticky disgusting mess on several loads of laundry and I have had to run at LEAST a 2nd or 3rd load to get the sticky, partially dissolved, mess-of-a pod off of my clothes.

This is the laundry detergent I have been using for the past three years. I keep going back to it because of the convenience of the pods and of how gentle the formula is on my sensitive skin. Using strong scents and dyes causes me to get rashes, so this is a great alternative! Also, the pods are great for living in dorms.

Review for: Tide Pods Free & Gentle - 35 CT more...
These are the main laundry soap that I use. I have a 2 year old with sensitive skin and this doesn’t give her a reaction like some of the others do. This is one of the few that actually is free and clear of dyes and perfumes. Others claim to be but they still have some in it. It works great! My clothes always come out clean.

I have had issues in the past with allergic reactions to laundry detergent but after switching to these I haven't noticed any issues. I use them on all my colors of laundry and have not noticed any type of fading. So convenient and easy to use. I like the container they come in because it's great for storage.

Love these pods! Started using them last fall to conserve on the amount of laundry detergent I use and I love these! We only have to pop one in our small washer and it takes care of the load! Also love that there’s no additive scents or smells, as I have very sensitive skin! Definitely going to continue using these!

Love these pods! It honestly makes laundry so much faster when I don't have to fuss with liquid detergent. Plus, way less mess! The only problem I've experienced is the pod not fully dissolving and leaving hard plastic like stuff on stuff. Washing the items again usually gets rid of it though.

These Tide Pods is the only laundry detergent I use. I don’t want to use detergent with a lot of extra chemicals because I have 2 small kids and although they get their clothes really dirty I still need to stick to a milder detergent as far as toxicity is concerned. These pods to the trick.

My skin is very sensitive to a lot of laundry detergents, and tide is the only brand that doesn't make me break out in hives. I tried out the free and gentle recently through a recommendation and I was not disappointed. My clothes felt great and came out super clean. Plus tide is affordable.

If I have become allergic to original tide powder detergent. is this a good swap? Or do my friends with Allergies recommend staying away from all Tide products?

I have never tried this. Does this work for super sensative skinned people?
