Proper care for you machine, which includes running monthly clean-outs with Tide Washing Machine Cleaner to help remove these residues and keep them from causing laundry problems down the road.
This product stinks and will make your laundry stink too. After using this product, I washed towels with hot water and bleach THREE TIMES and it still smells like this product. The odor is hard to describe, it what I would imagine industrial cleaner to clean airplane engines would smell like.
made the tub look pretty clean and left a strong scent, after cleaning the washer, i did some loads and noticed the clothes smelled more like the cleaner instead of my detergent is that normal or bad?

We're glad you reached out to us. We recommend doing an extra rinse with your washing machine empty, to help remove the lingering smell. If you have any other questions, get in touch with us at (800) 879-8433 and we'd be happy to chat more.
I bought this item hoping it will clean my washer and leave a nice smell. I was wrong. First of all, this product does clean the washer so that's a plus but on the other hand, it leaves you with this horrible chemical smell inside your washer. I wasn't very happy about this as it stunk up my whole house and lingers around. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone due to the toxic smell it leaves behind. I will be returning this product as I am not going to use it ever again. Don't waste your money on this product. Now my clothes are going to smell like chemicals. Thank you very much Tide!
Ha! It’s funny how so many people hate the smell of this, because I absolutely LOVE the way it smells!!! I wish they’d make an air freshener like it! It just goes to show that reviews are helpful at times, but when it comes to certain things... you have to just see for yourself.
Our washer smelled like mildew and after running bleach on the clean cycle then the tide washer cleaner on the normal cycle the smell is gone. Although this sent did linger on our clothes for the next couple washes.
