My review:

I'm a family of 4....2 girls the ages of 6 and 3. I do laundry every 3 days, about 4 loads. I normally use my own homemade detergent that has a fragrance to it. This is the first time I've ever used tide before. I did like how well the Tide worked to clean the clothes. I do, however, like to have some smell to my detergent. No one in my family has sensitive skin, but if they did, I would use this tide product. I will be recommending it to friends who do have sensitive skin. Thanks for choosing me to be a part of this program!

I do about 2-3 loads of laundry a day. I have been using the same brand of detergent for years, and rarely switch up unless something is on sale. Tide Free & Gentle was great on our clothes. It honestly cleaned them better than what we use now. I did miss the fresh smell though. Of my husband, myself, and our three kids, neither of us have very sensitive skin, but if either of us did, Tide Free & Gentle would be a definite option for us! I will be recommending Tide Free & Gentle to all of my friends and family with sensitive skin! I will be taking a look at the products on Soap.com. Thank you for choosing me for this product!

Picking a laundry detergent can be confusing. There are so many brands and types on the market. Tide has been a favorite brand in this house for a long time and now we can add one more Tide product! Our clothes were bright and clean! We couldn't be happier with Tide Free & Clear!

Hi my name is Alicia and I am a mom of 3. We do ALOT of laundry around here about 2-4 loads a day and most of it has stains. With 2 boys who play baseball and a 2 year old toddler who loves to get messy, I need a detergent that can hold up to lifting some serious stains.  

I was chosen as a influencer for Tide free and Gentle. All in all it did a good job cleaning the clothes, it made a good amount of suds and the clothes were soft. We aren't a family that has to have free detergent for our skin but it is nice to have as my Daughter sometimes breaks out with certain scented items and I have as well. I do prefer something with a little scent but I think if you really need a dye and scent free detergent this is the one you want to use!

I give it a thumbs up all in all! Thank you Tide and CafeMom for letting me take part in this influencer!

Just want to add that I love the detergent!! It's so gentle yet does a great job. I have a family that all has sensitive skin so it's perfect. I will be using this from here on out...especially on my girls' clothes!

My entire family has sensitive skin so I was a little worried about switching detergents however Tide got my clothes super clean & didn't irritate anyone's skin! I have a family of 5 with my kids ages being 11, 22months & 6 weeks. I do at least 2 loads a day. My husband is a lineman & works outside, in the dirt & because his clothes are FR I have restrictions as to what I can clean them with. This detergent even got his nasty stuff clean, oh did I mention we live in Georgia, so it's not dirt it's Georgia Red Clay!

I wash about 8 loads a week. This soap wasnt to bad on my sons sensitive skin. Lately most soaps have been breaking him out. My dh loves it for his dress uniforms. I got a couple of big loads left hopefully it cleans those good.

 Well, I've done three loads today. I liked the soap and I thought that it cleaned our clothes well. It also left the load of towels that I did soft. The only thing I didn't like is that although it is meant to be odorless, it has that "odorless" smell to it. If that makes sense at all. I do like this detergent although it will take me a little longer to decide of I like it enough to switch from my Target brand detergent. We will see!!

**Well this detergent isn't for HE washers so unfortunately I won't be finishing the bottle.  I am tempted to try the kind that is suggested on the back of the bottle for HE washers.  We will see, but I will definitly be comparing my normal detergent to the one suggested next time I go to the store.
