Tide Cold water anyone?

I have been using Tide Cold Water for roughly 2 weeks. I have seen very little difference in the cleaning power of it and that of Gain in cold water.

Anyone have any suggestions? I just did a load and a few items were still stained.

I do have a stain stick.

  • Actually, I'm not a big fan of Tide, epecially the cold water version. I think it's overpriced and really doesn't clean any better than other detergents that smell a lot better to me.

  • I find TIde to be the best...I have used it for years. is recommended to always be consistent with your detergent for the "health" of your machine. Hands down, the best thing I have found is ZOUT. Rub it into the stain. Depending how bad the stain can leave it on from just a few minutes to overnight., I find it amazing ! Good luck !

  • I would use Tide, but my husband is allergic to it. I find the best detergent to be Arm & Hammer.

  • I washed a shirt that my daughter ate her lunch with, no stain spray on it or anything. Used the Tide Cold Water, stains still there. I line dryed it.

  • I have used the A&H powder and it CRAPPED my clothes big time.
    But, the liquid is not 1/2 bad and the smell stays.
