Clean clothes start with a clean washer.
Fight odour-causing residues in your washer from laundry soils, detergents and water hardness minerals with Tide Washing Machine Cleaner. It helps fight and lift odour-causing residues as it freshens for a clean, fresh washer.
How It Works:
It improved my washer's bad smell. The scent was a bit overpowering when I did the first cleaning load, but I will go out the next time I use it. I've tried vinegar and bleach - this seems to work better. So I will use regularly until my washer's moldy smell goes away.
I received a sample pack with my new front load washer. I used the sample pack as per the instructions and have subsequently found that using this once every 3-6 months is more than sufficient; and I also chose to empty the packet right into the washer rather than emptying and filling the soap dispenser with the cleaner, and it works just as well
Seems alright, the washer is cleaner. Don't think you need to do it once a month though, maybe twice a year.
I've been using my front-loader for years now and recently noticed that it was smelling bad. I thought the washing machine cleaner would help and...it sort of did. I can still get a slight whiff of the funky odour but it's not as bad as before but I used two packets of the cleaner almost back to back because one packet did nothing. This product does have a very strong perfume but I don't mind it as it reminds me of Tide detergent, which I like.
This product left behind a very overpowering smell, product did not do a good job in our front-loader machine. In fact the machine smelled worse after use. My husband had to take the machine apart and power wash all the hoses to get rid of the build-up and smell.
This product is great! The smell went away but doesnt last very long...you must do this at least once a month.
The musty smell of the washing machine was mostly gone after the first use. No problems with using the product.
I didn't give this product a rating, as I have no idea if it works or not! I bought my first front loading washer a few months ago and I guess you're supposed to "clean" it with these types of products every month? So I do it...but no idea if it's doing it's job, I guess there are no funky smells coming out of the washer. So far so good.
Worked good. Washer smelled much better after one use. Will use once a month as directed!
This product did a great job of cleaning my washer.Someone told me that the machine I am using has a habit of smelling moldie. I used as the information on the box said to, and the machine came out shinning clean and smelling nice
I didn't feel it worked as well as I had hoped it would. I am going to try it again though.
Based on previous reviews I only used half the packet and still did a great job of cleaning the washer. No overpowering scent, no problem of lingering. I wil continue to use.
I would say that it does the job, & cleans the washer, but the scent is very strong.
This product was VERY overpowering...it did make the house smell nice but unfortunately it did not solve my stinky washing machine problem. Buying a new washing machine solved that problem! I still have some product left and I may use it again but I'd use it and leave the house for a couple of hours so that the intensity of the smell has time to evaporate a little.
I guess it did it's job to clean the washer, but the smell was very overpowering and it lingered for about 6 more washes.
my wife just saved quite some dollars using this product to have her washing machine cleaned and would recommend it to all users
