Here are three applications for Tide Pods.

  1. 1

    Quantify the Load Determine the load size of your laundry before starting the wash cycle. If you want to get the best cleaning and rinsing results out of your washer and prevent wrinkles and pilling, make sure your clothes, sheets, and towels aren't jammed in there too tightly. Generally speaking,[1]

    • About a third of the washer can be occupied by a small load.
    • Having the washer about halfway full is considered a medium or regular load.
    • Three-quarters of the washer is full with a large load.
    • The washing machine will be overflowing with an extra-large load.
  2. 2

    Put in some Tide Pods You should put the Tide Pods in the back or bottom of the washer and then add your laundry. You should pick the number of pods based on the weight of your cargo. A single pod is sufficient for light to medium loads, two pods for heavy soiling, and three pods for a completely full washing machine. [2]

    • Tide Pods should be placed in the drum of the washing machine, not the dispenser.

  3. 3

    Choose a wash program. Tide Pods can be used in both hot and cold water and with any type of washing machine. Observe the washing instructions on the labels of your clothes to select the appropriate wash cycle. Visit http://tide.com/en-us/how-to-wash-clothes/how-to-do-laundry/how-to-read-laundry-symbols for more information on what each of the five fabric care symbols means.
    • One common symbol depicting a basin of water with a single dot in it suggests cold water washing.
  4. 4

    Clean the lint trap It's important to take special care when washing a load of delicates (e. g lingerie, etc. ), I highly recommend Tide Free & Gentle pods. These pods are safe for use on both clothes and skin because they contain no harsh chemicals. They're hypoallergenic and highly recommended by dermatologists. [3]

  5. 5

    Get rid of odors and stains Stain-fighting ingredients are built into every Tide pod. You can increase the cleaning power of the wash by throwing in an extra Tide pod if you have any particularly dirty or odorous loads. Before washing, pre-treat stubborn stains by rinsing the affected items in cold water and blotting them dry. [4]

    • Get a Tide to Go Instant Stain remover pen and rub the stain with it before washing for extra stain fighting power.
  6. 6

    Take a trip with a Tide pod If you want to save money on laundry detergent while on the road, pack a few tide pods. Protect pods from puncturing and moisture by storing them in a hard plastic container. This is also a convenient way to bring Tide pods to the laundromat. [5]

  1. 1

    Invest in some Tide Pods. Get your hands on some Tide Pods at any grocery store, drug store, or big box retailer. To learn more about the different flavors of Tide pods, visit http://tide.com/en-us/shop. Pick one that best fits your requirements and preferences from the following

  2. 2

    Put Tide Pods in a safe place. Because of their bright colors and candy-like appearance, tide pods pose a risk of poisoning if ingested by children or animals. Put the Tide Pods in a locked cabinet up high, away from curious hands and paws. Washing with laundry pods (e. g (You should not put a pod down on a counter or table while doing laundry preparations, and you should also remove any small children or pets from the room.) [6]

    • Check that the container has a secure lock. To prevent accidental opening due to simple rotation or unzipping, the cover or zipper should not require any additional effort. You can open a locked zipper or lid by pressing and aligning it.
    • When caring for someone with dementia, it's important to keep the Tide Pods locked away.
  3. 3

    Don't let the tide pods get wet. Make sure the Tide Pods container is completely sealed before putting it away and that the pods are kept in a cool, dry place. Because of the potential for leakage and subsequent sticking, pods should be stored in an airtight environment free of moisture. Laundry should be done with dry hands only, as Tide pods are extremely slippery. [7]

  1. 1

    Tide Pods should be the first thing added to the washing machine. Always put your Tide Pods in the washer before adding your laundry to ensure proper dissolution. Dissolving pods in water requires as much contact with the liquid as possible, which is why they should be placed at the bottom of the machine. In order to determine how much laundry you'll be washing, you should load the machine as usual and then remove the laundry before inserting the Tide pod in the far back or bottom of the barrel. [8]

  2. 2

    Keep the washing machine from getting too full. Washing machines are bulky, so be sure to pack them loosely. If you overload your washing machine, the Tide pods won't get the agitation they need to dissolve. Don't squeeze your clothing or other laundry items into the barrel. [9]

  3. 3

    Tide Pods should not be opened and used as pretreatment. Do not open Tide pods to use for pretreating if you want to prevent stains or problems with the pods not dissolving. Detergent pods contain a highly concentrated formula that is gradually released throughout the wash. Tide pods' built-in stain remover should be sufficient for most messes. [10]
