Q: How is HE Turbo Clean 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 Clean 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.

Q: Can I save energy by washing in cold water with Tide HE Turbo Clean Original Scent laundry detergent?
A: Yes. In fact, if all Las Vegas households switched to washing in cold for one month, you could power the Strip for up to six days!* Just imagine the savings you could see in your household by doing the same.

*Based on total electricity use in the United States and all US households switching all loads from warm to cold temperature in standard top-loading machines with electric water heaters.

Q: Is this detergent low suds?
A: Yes. It’s been formulated with Smart Suds™ technology, which allows you to use even the quick cycle without sacrificing the clean!

Q: Does Tide HE Turbo Clean Original Scent clean in cold water?
A: Yes. In fact, Tide’s trusted cleaning ingredients are so powerful that it cleans even better* in cold water than the competition does in similar wash conditions.

*Stain removal of one dose of Tide vs. six doses of the leading competitor liquid brand base variant. 

Q: Is Tide HE Turbo Clean Original Scent safe to use with both my whites and colors?
A: Yes. Tide HE Turbo Clean Original Scent helps keep your whites white and your colors colorful, wash after wash. 

Q: Should I use this detergent in a standard washing machine?
A: We recommend only using Tide HE Turbo Clean detergents in high-efficiency machines.

Totally False Claims

As far as I can see the claim for cleaning 6x faster in half the time is totally bogus. I haven't found a washing machine yet that has a short quick cycle; mine, like others here, takes 40 minutes to wash no matter what. I find the new tide smells really bad too and it's a lot more expensive than any other brand in the stores I go go. I can't see any reason at all to buy this product. It just doesn't live up the claims.

Tide Response From Tide 03/08/2016

We’re sorry for the confusion, we’re more than happy to explain. Washing machines have changed over the years and since newer HE washers are 4x larger than traditional top loaders, the appropriate amount of detergent to clean is needed. Our HE Turbo detergents are truly designed to optimize performance of a HE machine. SmartSuds technology is formulated to clean more efficiently with fewer suds. Suds will collapse quickly to rinse clothes clean, without adding an additional rinse time wasting water or time needed to remove suds residue.

Hard to say if it's a great buy!

They state 6x's the cleaning 1/2the time, not sure how 1/2 the time works since I put my HE washer on Rapid Wash and regardless it still washes for 41 minutes. Not sure how to rate the advertising of the product.

Tide Response From Tide 12/01/2015

Hello, Isitclean. Tide HE Turbo has Smart Suds Technology which quickly collapses suds as soon as they're made to help eliminate extra rinse cycles being needed. Extra rinses means more time spent washing. We hope this is helpful and if you have any further questions we're happy to assist, you can reach us at 1-877-256-3265.

poor measuring cap

I am having great difficulty seeing the measuring marks in the inside of the blue cap. Unless the light is shining just right on the lines and numbers, I find them to be invisible. The product is great, the measuring cap is just useless.

Terrible new smell

Oh dear. I just bought Tide HE original scent in the jumbo size. I have been purchasing this formula for years. I noticed something was off as soon as I opened the bottle. The smell seemed different ... and it was very strong. I hoped that the scent would dissipate if I used an extra rinse cycle and air dried the clothes, however that hasn't been the case. Three loads later and the smell has now permeated much of my house. I will never be able to wear the newly washed clothes. If I don't rewash in something else, I will be reprimanded at my place of work. We receive memos often reminding us of the need to be scent free in accordance with the Human Rights Code. While I realize that the previous Tide original did have a slight scent, it was certainly never a problem for me (I have a sensitive nose) and I appreciated the gentle smell of clean when it came to washing my husband's sweaty gym clothes. I don't think Tide unscented will cut it for those loads. I am awaiting a response from customer service but thought I would post here when I saw the opportunity. Please P&G, bring back my old Tide. You can't label a bottle as original and then change the smell. It's not original then at all. Looking at the reviews on the US site, it appears that there are many, many unhappy customers who feel the same way.

New Scent

Have you changed the scent of this product? I've been using it for years without a problem, but the last bottle I bought leaves a strong, cheap scent in my clothes that lingers for days. As I have severe environmental allergies, I just can't handle it. There's no way I can continue to use this product in my home. I get a headache and I become dizzy and irritable whenever I'm in the same room as a piece of clothing that has been washed with this detergent. I'm thinking about changing brands now... I might try Tide scent free, but either way, I'm never buying this one again.

has anyone had a problem with detergent residue on clothes? After washing in my front loading machine, I sometimes find thin streaks of white, probably detergent. I just rinse it out and dry. But how do I prevent this from happening? Has anyone else had this problem?
