I decided to do a price comparison. Take a look at the results!
on March 22, 2015
There are 5 people in our house doing laundry. So, we go through a lot of detergent. I thought I'd give the pods a try. I really like the simplicity of using them. I also found they keep my laundry room cleaner. No gooey plastic cups around and no spills on the washing machine. I have two adult daughters living home and they are not the neatest people. I have had issue with them not putting the cap back on the detergent. A few times they also put it too close to the edge on top of the machine. During a high spin cycle, it ended up all over the floor. It was such a mess. So, the pods solve the messy laundry room and messy kid problems.
Given the ease of use, I wanted to reorder. I figured they were probably much more expensive than the other forms of Tide though and perhaps a luxury that I could not afford. So, I decided to do a price comparison. The results follow in order of affordability:
95 oz. powder for $11.97 (.17 per load)
72 pods for $15 (.20 per load)
50 oz liquid for $9.94 (.31 per load)
Furthermore, the pods only take up 10% of the prime pantry box whereas the powder takes up 14.4% and the liquid uses 17.6%. The liquid is clearly the worst choice. I decided the ease of use and extra 4.4% of the pantry box was worth the extra 3 cents a load for me. I hope this review helps you decide what form of Tide is right for you!
