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 have tried other products cheap and more almost same price, but nothing works better than tide. I hate to sound so commercial but it does take the stains out. I'm loving their pods at the moment too so I don't have to deal with the darn cup.

    Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

    My family has used Tide since I was a kid. My Mom always used Tide and now I use it for my family. It really does lift the stains off. I'd recommend anyone and everyone to use it. It doesn't fade colors at all. It is gentle on fabrics, and skin. It doesn't cause my daughter to break out like other detergents I have tried have in the past. The smell is very good. There are so many different Tide products to choose from. Even the simplest is the best. It is a little more expensive than some other brands, but you get what you pay for. It is definitely worth the price! I have used Tide products for a long time, and I think I will continue to use it. It is one of the best laundry products that I have ever purchased.

      Comments about Tide Original Liquid Laundry Detergent:

      My absolute favorite!! Every other brand I've tried over the years just doesn't get your clothes as clean, even the super expensive brands. With tide every single item comes out bright and fresh smelling. I've used Tide on both my boys clothes since birth and neither have ever had a reaction, it is so mild for sensitive skin it is even safe to use for cloth diapering. Nothing gets my cloth diapers cleaner than when I use tide

        I usually guesstimate the amount of detergent I put into a load. I've never had problems with my clothes not getting clean or with soap stains when I take clothes out of the washing machine. It gets clothes clean and fresh without damaging delicate clothing.
        Their pods would be easier to use for traveling without compromising the quality, but this is a good value for the product.

            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.
