Tide Pods I♡C&R. 2 kids; Thornton, CO, United States 25290 posts

I got a free sample of the Tide Pods in the mail. I used it and LOVE it. It's easier than pouring liquid or lugging liquid into the house after it's bought, etc. Is it much more expensive to buy Pods or something similar? I know Purex made one too, but it's not called Pods. Does Gain have one in their brand? Do you ladies use them and if so, do you feel they get your clothing as clean as liquid detergent does?

I use Gain because I am a Gain addict haha. And we use Downy Unstoppables. And then Tide Stain Release Boost pods on top of the clothes.



I also use a Bounce bar in my dryer.



Needless to say, my clothes smell amazing.



But I do wanna try the pods...I wish Gain made them :(

Ah, so Gain doesn't make something similar? That's a bummer. I love the smell of Gain and buy it when I have coupons...the liquid lavender kind....

I'm sure Sam's Club probably does too. I have a membership for Sam's, but not Costco right now :)

I have a bounce bar in my dryer and i used to use tide and then either purex crystal or downy. But my washer and dryer are in TX, i can't wait to get them back. Our clothes used to smell so good.



I think i want to try the Pods but it seems like your paying the same price for the liquid and the liquid gives you more.

Does the liquid give you more? A small bottle of detergent is $5 and lasts me about 5-6 days. I do about 2 loads a day or 3 every other day. I know that seems like a lot, but I like clean bedding, towels, and clothing. Either way, I looked on Target site and I THINK it said $18ish for 77 or something like that? I'm spending $25 in laundry soap per month. I would be spending $18 for the Pods per month-ish if I did a total of 2 loads per day and then some. I guess it equals out ABOUT the same, but it's easier and quicker to just toss a Pod in?! Lol I dunno.

I used to wash our stuff that much but since i have to use DH's grandmas washer it's hard, she's really picky about how things are washed.



I usually buy the biggest they have which is 150 fl oz and it says it will give you 90-96 loads ( i have to get the HE and it gives 96 loads) and at walmart it's $17.97. Then walmart has the pods (72 count) for the same price. Usually a thing of tide can last me a month depending on how much i wash that month. The pods seem easier, i honestly can't stand having to get the detergent and measure it because i'm so picky about a little bit of soap staying in the measuring cup.

I put the cup on the washer each time. Then you don't waste any amount of soap. ;).



I like the pods they are easier but I like my gain or all free and clear better. :(

I do too but i'm still picky about it, i don't know why though i guess i'm weird. I've always preferred Tide over Gain for some reason.

I loved the pods I got as a sample too, but I'm to cheap to buy them. :oops:
I buy cheap arm and hammer powder detergent and air dry my clothes so they still smell really good, but time consuming.
