Size Name: 7-count Box Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This product seems to be targeted at the consumer with a HE washer who has no idea why their washer smells like mildew or gym socks when it's not in use. First, I'll tell you why: When the washer is done with its cycle, there is some water left in a small container below the drum where the water pump is. Also, if you have any loops or dips in your water discharge hose, then water collects in there too. There is usually some dirt or leftover softener or detergent in the water, so as it sits the bacteria or mildew will grow in it until the next time you wash.

Tide's solution to this is to sell you a product that kills the bacteria and leaves some residue that smells good. However, there are steps you can take first if your odor problem is mild that can eliminate it without buying another product for it.

1) When the washer is not in use, leave the door open to let it dry out as much as possible.
2) If you use bleach in your wash, then make this load the last one you run. The bleach in that load will kill the bacteria anyway.
3) If you use softener, try switching to a dryer-based product instead of the washer liquid.
4) If you do not use bleach, buy a bottle anyway and run a washer cycle with no clothes, using hot water and a cup of bleach - do this once a month or so.

If you have a severe odor problem, you could try this product once a week for three weeks as they recommend to see if it removes the odor. Then follow the steps above and you should be OK. If the odor still persists, then inspect under and around the washer and in the waste pipe/trap to make sure there are no leaks or damp areas that never dry out. The source of the smell may not even be inside the washer.

Size Name: 7-count Box
Tide's product falls short of other products, such as Affresh, because the directions state that the powder should only be placed in the "Detergent" dispenser and used on the "Normal" cycle.

The Simple Science:
*It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a hotter water temperature in your Washer than that used during the Tub Clean cycle (despite what other reviewers have said). In fact - only the Sanitary cycle comes close, but it does not run as long as the Tub Clean cycle does.
*If your washer has a "steam" cycle, the only way to get your tub completely clean is to use the Tub Clean cycle!
*You use a Washing Machine Cleaner instead of Bleach because bleach only kills mildew and bacteria. While mildew and bacteria CAN cause your tub to smell, most tubs smell because of the RESIDUE left behind
*HE tubs use less water so the dirt/grime/muck in your clothes gets left behind (resulting in the biggest source of odor

Having said all of that, however, it is possible to modify the directions provided by P&G and, if used CORRECTLY, the Tide product actually (in my opinion) does the best job of cleaning the tub and leaves it smelling fresh longer than any other product!

I recommend splitting the Tide Washing Machine Cleaner powder up into four equal parts (eyeball it). The first part for the detergent bin, second part for the bleach bin, third part for the softener bin, and the fourth part should be dumped directly in the tub. This will ensure that the cleaning solution is used throughout the Tub Clean cycle (at least as much as possible without actually using "Affresh" slow dissolving tablets).

Size Name: 9 Count Total
Our front loading washer is 7 years old and gets used often. We were a family of four when we bought the washer and now are a family of six. Our washer has seen the potty training of three children, cloth diapers for two children, and is used and abused. The seal is coated with the gunk that no one wants to clean. Every once in awhile the washer is run with hot water and vinegar. We quit using bleach when one of the kids was diagnosed with eczema. On a whim, I picked Tide Washing Machine Cleaner up at the store. The directions say to use once a week for washers like mine - with an odor problem or visible residue. Then after three weeks to use once a month for maintenance.

Week 1- no real visible change but the washer does smell nice. Did not notice a difference in the cleanliness of clothes. I must admit. The washer still does a fantastic job at cleaning regardless of the junk on the seal.

Week 2 - Dude. My gunk is practically gone and again the washer smells tide fresh. Hmmm. This stuff actually works.

Week 3 - The seal is clean. Go ahead. Run your fingernails on it and try to find some gunk. Disgusting thought but just getting the point across. No gunk left.

Now, I prefer to make my own laundry detergents so I looked at the ingredients for this product. It's basically an Oxygen Cleaner, Washing Soda, and the last ingredient is sodium sulfate. I believe you could use Borax here. Oh, and they add perfume. Now, the ingredients in my laundry detergent: 1 cup washing soda, 1 cup Borax, and 1 bar of soap (like ivory). And you can add an oxygen cleaner for a booster. Hmm, sound familiar?

All in all, it works. But after looking at the ingredients I realized I'm using the same ingredients in my homemade laundry detergent plus an oxygen booster.
