I bought Tide Pure Essentials because I wanted to see what all of the excitement was about. I was drawn in by the simple packaging. The scent, Lilac, sounded appealing.
One bottle of Tide Pure Essentials cleans 26 loads. It has a very light scewnt. It wasn't overpowering.
I have a bad habit of leaving my clothes in the washing machine for a few hours before putting them in the dryer. I know not so bright, but with a baby I occasionally lose track of time. With cheaper detergents this kind of abuse of my clothes just doesn't fly. The clothes start to smell before even making it to the washing machine. With Tide Pure Essentials I can leave my clothes, wet, freshly washed in the washing machine and they don't smell when I come back for them a few hours later.
I enjoy using this product and anything that makes cleaning fun is good for me!
