Q: is there softener in your pods
A: Hi Carol. For most of our Tide PODS™ products there is no fabric softener included. However, our Tide PLUS Downy has a touch of Downy softness for your clothes. We offer it in a regular and an unscented version as well. If you have any other questions, give us a call at (800) 879-8433.submitted byTide - 10 months agoBrand expert
Q: is there formaldehyde in these pods?
A: Thank you for your question, Pat. We don't add formaldehyde to any of our products. However, some products contain ingredients to help preserve the product and kill bacteria, and some of these ingredients may release a small amount of formaldehyde. The very low levels of formaldehyde released from these ingredients are safe. Give us a call at (800) 879-8433 if you have further questions. We're here to help.submitted byTide - 1 year agoBrand expert
Q: Is this equivalent to 42 “loads” of original Tide liquid detergent?

Q: Is the plastic exterior of the pod biodegradable? Or will the plastic contaminate our water system?
A: We're glad you asked! The outer part of the PODS™ are fully dissolvable, and our team did tons of testing before releasing them to make sure they're septic and environmentally safe. We hope this helps, but if you have any other questions, feel free to give us a ring at: (800) 879-8433 anytime! - The Tide Teamsubmitted byTide - 2 years agoBrand expert
Q: Are Tide pods 3 in 1 scent free? I prefer to avoid artificial scents in cleaning products. Thanks.
A: Great question! We do have PODS™ that are scent free and hypoallergenic, which are our Free & Gentle PODS™. They have the same cleaning technology, without the scent or dyes! If you have any questions about them, you can give us a ring at: (800) 879-8433 anytime! - The Tide Teamsubmitted byTide - 2 years agoBrand expert

A: Thanks for asking. The bag for our Tide PODS™ is not recyclable. If you have any further questions for us, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433!submitted byTide - 3 years agoBrand expert
Q: Most pods recommend using 2 pods for large or heavily soiled clothes. Will one of these clean a large load? If I have to use 2 pods that doubles the already high cost for this brand
A: Thanks for asking. We can assure you that our PODS™ are optimized to provide superior cleaning power. Here's the recommended dosage for our PODS™: 1 for small/medium loads, 2 for large loads, and 3 for extra-large loads.
