How many loads of laundry are in a bottle of Tide?
Each container of the 2X Ultra Tide detergents shown holds 100 ounces of concentrated detergent. A bottle of Tide Mountain Spring scented cleaner (right) washes 64 loads. When Tide adds a bleach alternative (center), in this case to an “original scent” detergent, the number of loads per bottle drops to 52.
Is one Tide Pod enough for one load of laundry?
For a regular load of laundry, one pod is enough. When doing an extra-large load with enough clothes to fill a front-loading washer that holds up to 20 pounds, use two pods.
HOW MUCH HE detergent do you use in a regular washer?
When using HE detergent in a regular washer, you’ll need about 1/4 cup for a normal-sized load. There might be fewer suds, but you’ll still get a good clean. For a normal-sized load in a high-efficiency washing machine, the recommended HE detergent amount is usually 2 tablespoons.
Can you wash clothes with Tide?
Pour Tide on the stain, and rub the fabric together to work the detergent into the fibers. Turn new colored clothes inside out, and put them in the washing machine. Do not over stuff the machine, and wash the items on as gentle a cycle as is necessary to clean clothes.
Why is Tide so expensive?
Last but certainly not least, Tide is expensive because they have established themselves as an all-around laundry solution. Not only does Tide make a variety of detergents, but they also have fabric care and stain removal products.
What happens if you use too much laundry detergent?
If you’re using too much laundry detergent, your clothes will carry an odor and wear down the machine. The laundry detergent you use can affect your clothes in many ways. For instance, if too much is used it could stain or mark up the clothing which may have an effect on how they look and smell.
Do laundry detergent pods work better than liquid?
In terms of fighting stains, both Tide liquid and Tide pods came out on top. More impressive though was the consistent clean these pods provided. Not only did it leave clothes dirtier on average (58.2% stain remaining), performance was wildly inconsistent between each wash (57.1%, 63.2% and 54.3% stain remaining).
Do Tide Pods ruin your washing machine?
They’re Bad For Your Washer (and Dryer!) The pod detergents don’t dissolve well, even when washed in hot water. There are endless online complaints about this issue, many citing how the remains get caught in the bottom of the machine, and can stick to side of the dryer leaving “melted globs of glue” on the drum.
How many Tide Pods do I need for bedding?
The number of pacs necessary depends on the load size. To guarantee superior performance, add two Tide PODS® pacs into the washing machine drum before you add clothes. Use one laundry pac for smaller loads or three for larger loads. Place clothes into the washer on top of the laundry pac.
Can I use Tide powder in my HE washer?
How to Use Powdered Laundry Detergent in Different Machines. Top loader: Dose detergent directly into the drum before adding clothes. HE Washer: All our detergents are now HE-compatible.
Should you put detergent before or after clothes?
If you have a regular top-loading machine, it’s best to fill your washer with water first, then add your detergent, then add your clothes. This helps evenly distribute the detergent in the water before it hits your clothes. Remember that the nicer you are to your washer and dryer the longer they’ll last.
What is the difference between HE detergent and regular detergent?
The primary difference is the amount of suds created, but high-efficiency detergents will still get your clothes just as clean as regular detergent. High-efficiency detergent can be used in regular washers and won’t cause any problems; it will produce less suds, but your clothes will come out just as clean.
Why did Tide Pods stain my clothes?
The problem, according to Tide PR person Lauren Beene, is that the pod doesn’t dissolve fully in the water, causing a whitening agent to deposit on your clothes and leave a mark.
What laundry can you wash together?
You can safely wash black, grey, brown, and other dark colors together. These colors are unlikely to transfer during the washing process, especially if you use cold water. In terms of which washing product to pick for dark clothes, most people (myself included) will point you to Woolite Darks liquid laundry detergent.
Can I wash yellow and white together?
Don’t make this a habit, but if you don’t have enough items to make up a full machine load of each type of fabric and you are in a hurry, you can wash all clothes of the same color together. Just be sure to choose the correct washer cycle and use cold water to avoid damaging the most delicate garments in the load.
