Okay, I have tried about a million laundry detergents. Everything from Tide to All to Eco-friendly products to baby products like Snuggle. I have been there and done that! I often have itching, rashes and some reaction to detergent. In the end, I always come back to the Original Tide laundry detergent.

Tide smells great, feels great and is my go-to laundry detergent. After years of testing out dozens of detergents, I will always default to the freshest smelling detergent- Tide! Okay, so now that you know it doesnt give me hives and it smells great, how does it clean?

I think it makes my clothes clean. They always look clean and fresh after I use Tide. But, I cant honestly say that it makes my clothes any cleaner than any other product I have used. WAIT- one exception: dye-free detergent always leaves my clothes looking dirty. I feel like those are great for allergies, but the clothes never look quite as clean.

So, I choose Tide for the smell, the cleanliness and my rash free living!

I realize from reading other reviews that many people are BIG fans of Tide laundry detergent because it appears to clean efficiently. I have used it and I know that it is an effective cleaning product for clothing. However, there are some drawbacks that you need to consider:

1. TIDE makes me itch after a couple of washings. And it 's not just me, this affects my whole family. There is something in the chemical makeup that affects people with sensitive skin. It is very uncomfortable and is enough to force me to stop using it.

2. So, yes, it is good for getting clothes clean and getting stains out. (Not all stains, however, some of them have to be individually treated with other products). But that makes me wonder what is in there to clean things so zealously. I know the manufactuer (Proctor & Gamble) also make laundry products that are sold mostly in Mexico, where the consumer likes LOTS OF SUDS. Problem: lots of suds can mean that the soap is full of phosphates which are harmful to the environment. Should the American government even allow those Mexican-made soaps to be sold in this country? And is some government or consumer watchdog taking a look at just what goes into making TIDE? Just a thought.

3. My biggest complaint and the reason why I simply will not purchase TIDE is because the company is known for doing animal testing. I'm not a fanatic but I am an animal lover. I also have written to companies and asked for an explanation on why, in this day and age, they feel they need to cause pain to our animal friends in testing products. All of the work has already been done; companies know which substances cause which reaction; it all seems to be worked out. So why do they continue to do it? It makes me furious. Especially since none of them will reply. They are completely silent on the issue. Bunch of sadistic cowards.

So I use other products and add dish soap, stain removers, etc. as needed. People, your power resides in where you spend your money. Please write to these companies and/or do not buy TIDE or any other P&G products until they join the human race. Thanks.

      Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

      I remember using tide being used since I was a child, but I tried several other detergents after I had my own kids. After many failed attempts at switching, I'm back to using tide. I do still use a couple others, but tide is my preference right now. My clothes are clean and have a long lasting good scent. With kids and a sweaty husband, I have a lot of different laundry woes, and while tide may not help with all of them, I'm able to tackle most of the issues with the simple use of tide.

        Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

        After trying various types of detergents, I found that Tide works the best! It always works great on getting the stains out, but most of all what I find most appealing about it compared to other brands is that my clothes always come out of the washer smelling fresh and very clean. Overall, the scent is great, and I'm usually sensitive to different types of perfumes and/or fragrances, as they tend to me a headache. It's really not over powering, plus I have sensitive skin and have to be careful what types of detergents I use, I have never had any problem with this brand. Other detergents seem to fade my clothing quicker compared to Tide, as it helps to keep colors vibrant. It's wonderful and I would recommended it to everyone!

          Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

          Tide is the very best laundry detergent on the market for years now, and continues to prove that it is the best you can buy. This laundry detergent treats my family's clothes like they have had a trip to the dry cleaners it works that amazingly! This laundry detergent is a fairly decent price, cleans better than it claims to clean, and leaves an amazing scent on your clothing that is sure to delight you, and if for any reason you do not like the scent Tide offers many other wonderful scents that I absolutely love. What's not to love about this amazing product? I have been using Tide detergents of many varieties, types, and scents and I have not found a single reason to not love it. Out of all the laundry detergents I have used and sampled I cannot imagine using any other laundry soap than Tide, I really can't nor do I want to use any other. Tide gets out weeks old stains, brightens the colors and whites in your laundry, and makes all smells completely disappear. It even prevents color bleeds, I will always recommend Tide above all other detergents every time because it is truly the best money can buy and such a great value.

          A favorite in my home

          By

          Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

          This is great product and I rely on it to clean my clothing, even the dirtiest of my clothing. I have been a Tide user for as long as I can remember, so when I come up with new ideas that make my life easier I am on board to try them. As a permanent staple in my home, I highly recommend this Tide formula.

          Performance
          I really like the Tide brand and have been relatively happy with the original Tide powdered formula for the most part, until the liquid formula came out. I like the liquid Tide better because I never have to worry about powder residue on my clothing, if I happen to use a cold or warm water temperature. This product dissolves in any temperature water quiet easily and I never worry about a slick and sticky residue on my clothing after I have laundered them.

          Scent
          I like the original scent of this product. It is more concentrated than the powdered Tide. t is not overpowering to the nose and it does not irritate the skin or the nose at all.

          Smells So Nice

          Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

          This is my favorite laundry detergent, I love the smell and it lasts a very long time. It gets all my filthiest clothes clean and doesnt seem to discolor them or make then crunchy like other detergents. The only down side is the price, almost double some cheap inexpensive brands, but it is well worth the price. I can almost always find a coupon for it.

          Another fun thing, it glows! I've cleared a room for halloween and painted the walls with this stuff, sort of a haunted room thing, and it glows under a black light!

          Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

          This is my absolute all-time favorite laundry detergent. Everything about tide is wonderful it has a wonderful smell especially the original it doesn't even need to have all those new scents.
          I know they have the caps to show how much you need but I have read and do now believe that you do not need to use and much detergent as the companies even say you can get so much use out of your detergent bottle if you use probably half of what they're telling you to. Tide is definitely a product you can use less of you because it's so strong you don't need to use as much preload you can get so much more for your money it's such a wonderful product

          Performance
          I've never felt the need to rewash reclean any clothes I've ever used with Tide. I have found that other brands do not leave my clothes feeling or smelling as clean and fresh. I use it on everything from towels and sheets to clothes, stuffed dolls and small rugs -anything you would need to put in the washing machine

          Scent
          I'm sure it's based on preference but I absolutely love the original scent I've tried the other ones and the original is my favorite

          There is a reason why Tide is so popular

          Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

          My mom always swore by Tide original liquid laundry detergent when I was a kid. I've used just about every brand of laundry detergent out there and Tide works the best out of all of them. It is much better at getting out stains than the other brands. Even though it is powerful on stains, it will not fade your clothes. My husband used to work at a factory and Tide was the only thing that got his work clothes clean.

          The bad thing about Tide is that it is very expensive. Even though a little goes a long way, it can add up quickly since I do a lot of loads of laundry. I'm also not a big fan of the scent. I prefer the scent of original Gain laundry detergent. The scent also doesn't last on the clothes after you put them away.

          I would recommend Tide laundry detergent to families with children. I also recommend it to anyone that works a job that gets their clothes very dirty and greasy.
