Q: How is HE Turbo different from Safe-for-HE compatible detergents?
A: Using detergents that are only HE compatible produces excessive suds, which make the machine run longer due to additional rinse cycles needed to rinse out the suds. Tide designed its new HE Turbo detergents with Smart Suds technology, which eliminates suds so the cleaning ingredients in the detergent can act faster and rinse out quicker. Additionally, the wrong detergent can add up to 10 more gallons of water to your HE wash cycle.
