Review for: Tide PODS Free & Gentle Laundry Detergent, Unscented, 152 count, Designed for Regular and HE Washers more...
I like using the Tide PODS rather than the liquid detergent because I feel that they are a lot less messy and easier to use. When I use the liquid it gets sloppy and I have to measure out each load. It saves me time to be able to just grab a pod to throw in and not have to do anything else and I feel that they work just as well.

Not my favorite detergent as you can't seem trust tide not to discolor your fabrics; however, once my favorite brand changed their sensitive formula I tried the tide. It works well enough, I love the pod delivery system, but I don't trust the formula not to discolor my fabrics here and there.

Review for: Tide PODS Free & Gentle Laundry Detergent, Unscented, 120 count, Designed for Regular and HE Washers more...
Really like these ones as far as pods go. I have had to use two at a time on average, but I have three kids so rarely wash a load that isn't large. Using exclusively unscented products I often struggle with odors after washing but have been very impressed with this brand. Comes out smelling very clean even after camping and everything comes home smelling like camp fire. Would definitely recommend.

Tide pods are so convenient, this is what I have been using for two years now. Since I am in college, these make it very fast and easy for me to throw in the washer and start a load of laundry. This is a pack of 152 which would be on the expensive side but it would last you a very long time!

I usually buy the regular Tide Pods. I find it so much easier to monitor my laundry detergent usage and make sure I'm not using more than is necessary. With a front loader washer that could be awful! I like to also use a scent booster with this to make the clothes smell nice and fresh.

Review for: Sensitive Tide Pods HE Laundry Detergent, Free & Gentle, 77 Count, 69 oz. Container more...
#Tide is always a reputable brand, and with my really sensitive skin, this is what I have to use. I usually only buy it with coupons because of the price, but I love Tide. If you're a Tide family who has someone with very sensitive skin, this line is amazing and I've had no reactions to it.

Review for: Tide Pods Free & Gentle - 16 CT more...
Like all products these are fantastic. They are great for babies to adults. If you have sensitive skin or allergies they will work. It takes all the stains out of your clothes and even without fragrances it still leaves a nice fresh scent behind. Well worth the price and the only thing i wish is that there was more in there.

Review for: Pacs more...
Great for sensitive skin. Although the pods are more expensive to initially purchase, I think they are more effective for the money (as you don't need to repurchase as often). Even for large loads, you really only need 2 pods. Keeps clothes very clean without irritating my skin.

This is the only laundry detergent I use right now. I do my father-in-law's laundry and he is older and will get mysterious rashes. Using the free and gentle eliminates one source! However, I can use the scent boosters for my own laundry and change it up more easily with the seasons.

Review for: Pacs more...
Great for those with sensitive skin who are easily irritated by harsh dyes and perfumes. The only downer with Tide pods is that sometimes, the film sealing the pods doesn't dissolve all the way so you have to rinse it out by hand. But once it's out, it's like it was never there.

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?

Does anyone know what chain of stores carries this product? I have not been able to find a store that consistently carries this!

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