I bought this because I didn't want to go to Walmart and interact with people. I also don't like measuring out liquid so this was a better, easier alternative for when you need to start adulting. Does what it needs to do but cheaper and more quantity!

Tide: a conversion story
I was raised in a larger family on a budget and my mom always bought the cheapest detergent. I don't remember any problems with the cheap stuff - our clothes were always clean and free of stains. When I was first on my own I refused to buy the more expensive laundry detergents out of principle. Why waste money on stuff that gets rinsed away when the cheaper stuff does the same thing? I would occasionally splurge on Gain fabric softener, though!
So... I moved into a place without washer hookups and had to haul my stuff to a laundromat. And I dutifully hauled my jug of Sun/Xtra/store brand in the basket. And on one rainy night after a crummy day, I was at the laundromat trying to fit two weeks of clothes, towels and bedding into as many machines as possible at once to save time when I RAN OUT OF SUN DETERGENT. (Omg! Silly, I know!) So what do I do? Do I go to the vending machine and spend half of my remaining quarters on a tiny box of detergent? Do I run across the street in the rain to the convenience store? Do I come back another day? But then the heavens shined a light down in the form of a nice couple who saw me trying to get every drop out of my now empty jug. They generously offered me a couple of their original Tide Pods! I was so grateful, but then they had to explain what to do with them - drop the pod in the drum of an EMPTY washer, add clothes, then water - the same order I was taught to wash using regular liquid or powder detergent as a kid. So I proceed with the rest of my laundry, get home, re-make my bed, put the clothes away, and exhaustedly collapse in bed.
I wake up the next morning to something I've never smelled before - something wonderful, very light and clean. My bedding was washed in a load with the Tide Pods! I sat up and *really* felt my sheets. They felt so different and even looked cleaner. I was amazed that laundry detergent could do that. The most amazing thing is that the scent lasted for like a week. I immediately decided I would buy a small bag of original Tide Pods that day. It was tough paying for a small bag knowing I can get a huge amount of the cheap brands for the same price. But now I shop sales and never buy without a coupon. I love that AlumiGogo offers manufacturers coupons on these kinds of purchases, too.
Im still using Tide Pods now that I'm back in a house with a washing machine and I couldn't be happier. I have one of the older, non-HE machines and I've never had issues with the pod not dissolving or staining clothes. But I definitely think it is important to always add the Pods to the empty drum first, then add clothes, then water. This way the pod gets extra time to dissolve while the water is pouring and it won't dissolve on top of the clothes.

Better than regular detergent, but can ruin clothing.
Better than regular detergent with one massive possible caveat. If the pod does not dissolve completely, you will find yourself with destroyed clothing after putting the clothes in the dryer. However, I have been using these for two years now and have only had this problem once (with sheets). Just make sure to put the pods on the very bottom and you should be fine.

Makes measuring the detergent a thing of the past, but sometimes the don't dissolve.
Tide's PODS clean well and I like that the detergent doesn't need to be measured with these pods. My spouse has a tendency to use too much detergent and these are great.
I have a front-loading GE washing machine that is about 3 years old. The washer has a huge capacity and even when fully loaded one of the Tide PODS gets all of the laundry clean and fresh smelling. It also rinses cleanly and leaves behind no residue. The pods work well with colors and whites and waters of all temperatures. I've used them to clean all sorts of stains from blood to red wine and they always do a great job.
The one issue I have, however, is that they fail to dissolve fully on occasion and will either get stuck in the washing machine's front gasket or I will find the "shell" of one of the PODS dried onto an article of clothing after I have dried the laundry. I can't even use the PODS on my machine's delicate cycle because they just don't break down. The pods are supposed to be inserted before you put the laundry in, but since my washer spins a bit to sense the load size and weight before adding water, I think sometimes the PODS move towards the front of the machine during this process and get wedged into the gasket.
All in all... convenient and great cleaning.

I have been eating these for weeks and love them!! Just kidding..
I have been eating these for months now and I really enjoy them. Not really. just kidding. Only reason that I mention that is because right now in my area, it is all over the news of how teenagers are eating them and getting deathly sick. I am not joking around because the babies that ate them several years back but you must admit that the teenagers eating them and posting videos on Youtube is just plain stupid.
Okay so I LOVE Tide Pods. I have used them since they first came out and they are getting better with time to me. At first the packaging would not dissolve and would get stuck to clothes and ruin clothes in the dryer. Now, they completely dissolve and leave my clothes smelling wonderful. the price is better than I can get it locally also so as long as AlumiGogo keeps shipping these babies to my doorstep then I will keep buying them from AlumiGogo at a cheaper price.

Gets Blood Out - even in hot water!!
My dog was recovering from a wound and the linen sheets I used as his bedding were riddled with blood stains. I thought I'd have to throw them away once he was completely healed. However, I wanted to clean his bedding after a few days, so I threw them in my washer with two of these Tide pods. When the sheets came out, there were NO blood stains - not even a hint of one. I almost hit the floor. I didn't even use cold water! I used the hottest water because I was trying to clean any germs off of them. I was so shocked and excited. I wouldn't have to throw away these beautiful linen sheets! So, ladies, gents, if you are tired of razor nick blood stains on your expensive sheets (or drool, or probably anything else), worry no more. This stuff really works.

The item was as advertised in the description, arrived in the correct time frame and was shipped well and all in tact upon delivery. When the price is right, AlumiGogo is my number one go to for almost everything. The Prime membership is (a lifesaver sometimes even) well worth it and the fact you can keep things in the cart until the price drops makes it a huge shopping tool. Thank you.

and I like it, it really does clean clothes and my ...
Hi,I used to use another brand of clothes detergent, but my friend swears by Tide, so I Tried Tide pod detergent,and I like it , it really does clean clothes and my whites , beddin really good! But then I thought I'll save some money and go back to useing my regular pod detergent, and then I noticed my Whites were not coming out clean white, even beddin with bleach weren't white, and I couldn't figure out what's wrong? My washer and dryer are only a year old! I wash all whites in Hot water, my detergent and with bleach and nothing was working, and so one nite my son said ma can't you smell that bleach? I can smell it upstairs on the second floor? I felt so bad because anyone could have gotten sick, ! My washer & dryer are in my livening house, not in my cellar! So I said that's it! I was trying everthing and I over used bleach, which is very harmfull ,now I measure how much I use! And I figured out that hey I'm going back to useing Tide pod detergent! I never noticed a difference until I switched from my brand to Tide and then I wanted to save some money and go back to my cheaper brand clothes detergent, but that's when everything change, and I realized my brand was not cleaning as good as Tide! Seriously, I grew up where you were taught to pick and choose ,, buy wisely! Names didn't mean it's a better product, ! But Tide just Works much better, so if I have to pay more well my clothes, bedding etc. are worth it! We pay enough on them , To purchase them! So now I 'm gonna clean them Right the first time! I seriously had to have a talk with my husband , because we both were brought up to spend money wisely and store brand were just as good as big brand names, well we still believe that, read ingredients! But We will stick with Tide pod Detergent from now on, its worth it to have nice clean , fresh smelling whites right from my washing machine! No more washing everything twice! Tide works! All you have to do is get over the price and realize your worth it, , ! Thanks,I really hope this helps viewers! Good luck . Thanks K.Reddin

Tide just works better.
I've raised two boys over the course of 40 years. Have big dogs. Do gardening. I always use the cheaper option when I can. But. nothing gets your clothes as clean as Tide. It's better than the bargain brands. The pods make washing in my front loader so easy.

Delicious! And they clean my clothing wonderfully!
Everyone has their pick, and it's Tide for me! Keeps my duds clean, and the pods sure are convenient.
Just please don't subtract any more from society's waning collective intelligence - keep them out of your pie hole. And to those that complain that they "don't dissolve" and stain clothing, use a little common sense and place them at the bottom of the soaking-wet tub of water in the machine...yeah folks, they dissolve in water, and not while sitting dry on top of a poorly loaded Whirlpool load.
