i use to lovvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeee gain because of the smell but tide cleans better to me. what do you ladies use or think is the best???? if theres one that i didnt put on there please do tell me about it. tide is very expensive but honestly if you buy extra which is 3 to 4 bucks at the dollar store for a small bottle you wind up using more just to clean right. so buy spending 11 bucks on tide at walmart it last me all month versus having to buy laundry detergent 2 or 3 times a month with the cheap stuff so for me its the same... i havent tried the PODS but i want to!!!!!!! i go to the laundry mat and i only wash clothes 1 time a week so i have alot when i go. i dont know how many pods i would use its prob the same as just buying the liquid because id have to use like 3 or 4

I buy something different almost every month. I love Gain but it cost too much, Tide gives me headaches, I love Oxydol but can not get it where I live anymore. So I stick with Ecos, Era and Pured. Also the Members Mark Tide knock off is good.

I used gain for the longest time but right now Im using Era because I had a coupon for it. I think it cleans pretty well. Im afraid to use the pods after hearing about all the kids eating them and it making them really sick. I know we had a 5 yr old eat one in my hometown and they had to life flight him to a children's hospital :(

None of the above. Legacy of Clean SA8 from Amway. It's $43 for a big box, but it lasts all year. I refuse to use anything else. It cleans the best, no fillers, safe for high-efficiency washers. Also, it's biodegradable, phosphate-free and otherwise environmentally friendly, well before it was cool to be.

I use biokleen at $13 a bottle, as I'm pretty much allergic to anything else. It lasts me about 6 months. It cleans well and if I need a boost for the socks I just add a little baking soda. Works great and it's got no extra chemicals, it's just soap.

I like the Purex Naturals or the Arm & Hammer scented sensitive.

I adore tide cold water and it smells bangin' with snuggle exhilarations bamboo and blue iris. I spend about $10-11 on it and wash a decent amount of clothes a week but still get buy, buying it every month or two. I just dont have to use alot to get my clothes to look clean and smell clean. Im all over my blanket right now that I just washed. I just wanna marry this damn thing. Smells sooo good.

I buy only All Free & Clear. Also use Bounce Free dryer bars. The large jug lasts me about 2-3 months & I do at least 5 loads a week.
