Years ago, I switched to inexpensive powders and liquids and paid the price with dingy whites and stains that just wouldn't some out. Then I saw the ads for PODS - and I thought, how stupid. Then I tried them. Our clothes smell great, and the whites have brightened substantially. This makes it fast for me, and easy for my kids when its time to swap the laundry. I was also told by our Maytag repairman that the PODS are the best thing you can use because incorrectly adding too much detergent can cause the seals of a front loader to grow dry and brittle. I don't know why some people are having problems with them not dissolving completely, I've used these now for a year and never had that problem UNLESS my washer was messed up. But I know why their washers are smelling bad - that's a front load washer problem. Our first front loader was disgusting to smell and after buying the second, I finally discovered you should ALWAYS leave the door to a front loader open when it is not in use so the remaining moisture in the drum doesn't sour. ;) I've not had any problems with my second front loader smelling bad and we never ever close the door unless its in use.

I first started using the Pods at my MIL's and boy do I wish she never bought them!! It seemed like it was working at first, but I didn't realize how long it actually has been ruining my clothes. As you can see, MANY people with front-loaders are telling you that it doesn't dissolve in cold water-- LISTEN! I've been finding little plastic pieces on some of my clothes for some time now and realized it only happens to cold cycles that I wash at her house. This week I'm house sitting and praying that the gigantic purple/pink/blue stain covering at least half of HER king-sized sheet will come out! I noticed that the Tide employers had the audacity to not only remind others to not overfill their load, but to not run cold cycles in the winter! Well, 1. I know when to stop adding laundry and 2. it was 90 degrees out that day. Unfortunately I was in a hurry, so I didn't see the stain before putting it in the dryer (but I did notice a weird smell too; it must be what others talked about). If P&G is concerned enough about dissolving issues to recommend not running cold cycles in winter months (and to always use the warmest water the clothes will allow), then it shouldn't be advertised to dissolve in cold water!! How many people have to report damaged/ruined items for you to actually do something?? Giving bad advice to random reviews doesn't cut it! I will definitely warn everyone I know about this!!

The Trick is Not to Overload

By AbbyMarie

from Emmitsburg, MD

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I'm a college student living in a dorm, and trudging up and down three flights of stairs with a hamper of clothes is awful when you're lugging a big bottle of detergent as well. I just bought Tide Pods in the Spring Meadow scent, and so far they've been a life saver. You just bring one or two down to the laundry room. The only problem I've had is that once (just once) the pods left a bit of gunk on a sweater of mine, but that was quickly solved when i washed it a second time. The trick with these is to avoid overloading, otherwise obviously there's going to be a stain on your clothes, because they don't dissolve. I like them a lot, will definitely be purchasing again.

Great product

By taniay

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

Tide is my favorite laundry detergent and I was exited to try Tide Pods. It is very easy to use, it has a light scent, and is not messy at all. This product is perfect for a quick wash since detergent, stain remover and softener is in one little pod. For a bigger wash i would strongly recommend adding 2. P.S. I received this product for testing from Influenster. All opinions are my own

Residue all over several loads of clothes

By tzgunter

from Cataract, IN

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I have previously used tide pods with no issues, but recently, this has not been the case. When I had city water, the pods worked like a dream - now that I am on a well, its more like a nightmare. Loads of all sizes come out with melted in pod residue. I have tried reducing my load size (washed a load of three towels on a full load size), to no avail. I suspect it is my well water that is causing issues with the disintegration of the pod. Going back to liquid detergent ASAP.

Pod Disaster

By Carli

from Albany, NY

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I used the Tide Pods to do my laundry. I have never had a problem with them before, but the last couple of times I have done my laundry, the plastic that surrounds the detergent has melted into my clothes. It has completely ruined three of my shirts and damaged many more. I will not be buying these anymore.

My whites are GREY!!!

By Rookie954

from Colorado

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I have been using Tide pods for about 8 months and I love the concept-- BUT I've been noticing that my white things are now a silver gray color and my husband even remarked that his socks look a little blueish!!! I am returning the 2 bags I have and will look for something without that pretty blue and orange color, and see if I can salvage my laundry.

Ruins Clothes

By clfranc

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

It was at first really awesome because it was easy to use, but then after using them for all semester, more often than not my clothes have been RUINED by Tide Pods! I thought at first it was a problem with my college's laundry machines, but it's because the Tide Pods don't dissolve quick enough and then gunk up on my clothes like dried gum and ruin them! So many cute clothes ruined! It's really quite unfortunate because it would seem like a great and easy way to wash your clothes, but it's really only a great and easy way to ruin them.

Use Liquid Tide, Tide Pods Ruin Clothes

By laundreeladee

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

When it comes to laundry detergent I only use the Tide brand. Typically I use liquid Tide, but thought I would try the Tide pods. Even when following the directions of how to use the Tide pods, I have had many items of clothes ruined because of this product. While I've had the previously mentioned purple stains, the most frequent happening is the outer plastic melting into clumps on the clothing. Overall, stick to the liquid!

Thought they were good...

By Cmyers

from Oklahoma City

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I have refused to buy Tide Pods again as I have had two instances where they have not dissolved all the way and left a purple stain and plastic stuck to two different shirts (one was white!). I have been able to get it dissolved out of the second shirt after being able to figure out what it was but I am not sure I'll be able to get it out of the first shirt since it has been a little while. I will be trying as soon as I'm done leaving this review. I was looking for an easier way to do laundry without having to lift the heavy bottles of liquid, and while this is only twice in 6-7 months of using them, it is not easier when having to re-rinse clothing to get the melted Pod to completely dissolve.

Melted All Over My Clothes

By stace

from KY

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I thought Tide Pods were great until I did my most recent load of laundry and discovered that the Tide Pod had melted all over 2 of my work shirts, ruining them. The pod left hardened white stains from the coating of the pod on the shirts that will not come off. They were my favorite shirts and I was very upset that they were ruined. I'm going back to regular laundry detergent immediately. The pods are horrible. I won't risk ruining my clothes again.

Does not dissolve quick enough

By TopLoadOnly

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

This shouldn't even be recommended for side-loaders simply because it takes too long to dissolve. Worked okay for my top-loader on the 2nd try after I let it dissolve in the full drum of water before dropping clothes in and starting the rest of the wash cycle. Took about 8 to 10 minutes to start breaking down before the water becomes diluted with it. Hope that helps for those stuck with the product like me.

Stained whites

By SeaPort

from Illinois

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I have used Tide for years and was delighted to try the Tide pods. I thought I was using them successfully until I started to notice lavender/blue splotches on my husband's white undershirts. Eventually, my whites have become stained also. I realize now that this is a Tide Pod problem. I used them correctly and any efforts of remediation (using bleach, re-washing, etc., etc.) do not work as the clothes have been washed AND dried and those stains are SET. Thanks for nothing, Tide. I will be using other detergents from now on.

Eczema Alert!

By LIsamom

from Middle Tennessee

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I am a long time Tide user. I usually use Tide liquid original scent for HE washers. I tried the Pods and at first they were great. No drips, easy to use and the same tide clean. After a few weeks my 7 year old broke out in a bad Eczema rash all over his shorts area, armpits and belly. He's had Eczema in the past but we've had it under control for a few years and it was never this bad. After some detective work and elimination I realized it was the pods. I will use Liquid Tide again but not until his rash is gone. For now it's organic dye free scent free stuff. Just wanted to let other mom's and everyone know that the Pods are not for sensitive skin.

Totally Poor Product

By JustPlanBad

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I tried the Tide pods because Tide powder, which I would normally use, is no longer available. Like many others have pointed out, this product is the absolute worst. As others have noted, the pods do not always dissolve completely. And before someone from P&G customer service replies to ask, the answer is yes I do put the pods in the drum first and NO the machine is not overloaded! Nonetheless, I still end up with purple blotches on my clothes. Before, whenever I did a load of laundry, I always programmed an extra rinse cycle. However, since I've been using the pods I find it necessary to add an extra, extra rinse cycle - and even that does not always work. Ocassionally, I still end up with purple blotches from the undissolved pod. Having to add an extra, extra rinse is obviously a complete waste of energy and water, and it's a step I should not have to take! The idea of the pods is commendable however execution is sorely lacking. Designers need to go back to the drawing board and find a better dissolving material to encapsulate the detergent. I guess I'll have to start using the liquid from now on.

Didn't dissolve

By Anonymous

from Phoenix

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I just did a load of lights and as I emptied the dryer folding everything I found the pod completely intact. I put it in the washing machine first, it was a large but not an oversized load of light weight items. I guess I'm really lucky it didn't open in the dryer, but now I have very nicely folded dirty clothes I have to wash again. I love the concept but I won't buy again.

Not what I expected

By missannie

from Melbourne, FL

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I've been a Tide user for many years so I assumed the Pods would do a great job with less work. Now my whites have wide blue streaks in them, hubby's shirts have streaks or stains that I can't remove. I do read the directions and put the pods in the machine first. I will have to discard the rest of the Pods I'm sorry to say.

Tide Pods

By Avery

from Atlanta

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

Absolutely hate this product! I was done washing my clothes so I put them in the dryer. When I took them out I noticed a hard light purple spot on my clothes. I soon realized that it was what was left of the pod. It apartently did not disolve all the way when they were getting washed so when I dried my clothes they were little hard spot on multiple clothing. So I washed them again with a liquid digergant from a different brand, and it turned out great! No hard spots and I didn't have to wash my clothes twice. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Ruined clothes

By ErinNO

from New Jersey

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I am so upset this pod ruined a TON of my family's clothing before I realized this was actually the culprit! I have had to throw out multiple pieces, some that were worn once!!!!, because of big bleach spots. :( :( :( I have a brand new HE washer machine, so I know it is really the product. I switched back to liquid detergent and haven't had a problem since.

There is a problem with Pods

By HarryC

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

We have been washing clothes for decades and have used Tide exclusively for all of these years. We recently switched to Tide Pods and immediately noticed bluish/purple stains appearing on clothes, bed sheets, and wash cloths. The stains seem to be particularly bad in the perspiration area of shirts. Numerous clothes have been ruined. The Pods are always put in first, we never overload the machine, and the washers are less than two years old. There is a problem!

College Woes

By AllieK

from Danville, KY

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I used Tide Pods as a sophomore in college and I also used them as a freshman. Last year, they did alright, but occasionally left a gooey/sticky mess on my clothes from the plastic pod. This year, they've dyed blue splotches in many of my favorite clothes (luckily it washed out with warm water and stain remover). As I write this, at least five of my clothes are being re-washed for the third time this semester. I'm switching ASAP to a different brand.

Easy to use

By banksfam6

from AZ

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I bought the Pods because they seem faster and cleaner. I just bought a new washer the front loader Duet. For some reason the pod is exploding on our clothes. Every few loads I see purple or sticky stuff on our clothes. I really like the idea of the pods I just don't feel like the new batch I bought is dissolving as well as it used to in my old washer. I don't know if I can keep using them if this keeps happening. Pods are a GREAT concept. I just wish they dissolved more efficiently.

Blue problem!

By Peewee

from Lexington, ky

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

This product has a problem. It leaves blue stains on white or lightly colored (ex.; light yellow) and other garments. And subsequent washing with Tide Pods or Tide detergent doesn't resolve the stain. After decades of using only Tide I will be looking for another detergent. I really hope you can get this problem solved.

Only Detergent I Use In Washing Machine!

By MonicaPz

from Beacon, NY

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

Use Tide Pods HE as soon as they came out. At first I did not use it correctly, and learned how to use it correctly when I called Tide. They kindly educated me. Learned to place the pod at the bottom of the tub and towards the front, UNDER the clothes. Never had a problem after that. Use it in conjunction with Tide Liquid HE directly on stains as soon as I discover a stain. By the time I do laundry, the Tide Liquid HE would be dry. Then I used Tide Pods HE in the laundry room and Laundromat. Love it because it does not make a mess. They are easy to transport in a plastic bag. If kept around for a long time, the white part becomes dark, but it still works just as well. Know of no other brand that works as well!

Purple Stains!

By alhj

from Matthews, NC

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I have been a Tide user forever. Anytime I try a brand I am disappointed. I love the idea of the Tide pods for making the laundry one tiny bit easier. I started noticing purple stains on my husbands white t-shirts (just about the only white clothes in my household). I could not figure out what he was doing to get these stains. And then I realized they weren’t on the shirts BEFORE I washed them and it occurred to me that it’s from the Pods. I do everything “right�... Pod in first, not overloading at all, not using delicate, cycle runs a full-length, wash in warm, etc. But still we get stains every time on whatever shirt happened to be sitting on top of the pod. Very disappointing. Fortunately for me these are all undershirts, so not visible. And the stain does eventually wash out on it’s own. No more pods for me. I’m giving the Gain pods a try right now, but I’m guessing Tide liquid will be back on my list. These should NOT be used for whites of any kind.

Stains clothes, leaves sticky residue "lump"

By Shelley678

from PA

Comments about Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist (85996):

I am tired of seeing people being told that if instructions are followed as directed, the pods will dissolve completely. This is not true. I've had a sticky residue "lump" left on my clothes at least three times, (doesn't come off, btw) and now my favorite white shorts are stained with a blue streak. There are times I have to fill the washer completely and the pod still doesn't dissolve, and then I have to run it with no clothes in for a minute to get the pods to pop. Then I have to add the clothes, pushing them down into the water. FAR from convenient! It's sad when you have to check your clothes completely when they come out of the washer to make sure you don't set the stains by putting them directly into the dryer. And the sticky lump will also remain on your clothes after the dryer. Again...how is this more convenient?
