Tide Free & Gentle Laundry Detergent {Review & Giveaway - 3 winners!}

Tide logo
I've mentioned it before, but doing laundry has a strange way of making me happy. There's just something about putting the dirty clothes in and having them come out clean and fresh that is somehow extremely satisfying. Along the same lines, I often enjoy folding the just-laundered clothes as well and seeing them so nicely stacked in their piles for each family member.

But that's where it ends.

I've told my husband more than once that if we win the lottery and build our dream home, it's going to have a gigantic closet in which all of my clothes can stay laid out at all times, because putting things back into the drawers just makes me tired.

It might not be logical, but hey, at least I don't mind doing the actual laundry.

Fortunately, the biggest name in laundry detergent, Tide, has made it even simpler for me to get our clothes washed quickly and easily —while still keeping out the dyes and perfumes that we don't particularly enjoy— thanks to Tide Free & Gentle.

Tide Free & Gentle detergent

Tide Free has been specially designed for sensitive skin and is made with no dyes or perfumes. Even better, it is dermatologist tested to provide your fabrics with a great clean that's gentle on your skin. What more could you ask for?

Each time I have used Tide Free on my family's clothes, I have been happy with the results. The very tiny hint of a scent that I smell (when I put my nose right up to the detergent) is simply that of a clean, soapy freshness. As the formula is safe enough even for babies, I don't have any problem using it on clothes that touch my daughters' (and my husband's) sensitive skin.

Tide Free

From the first time I tried Tide Free & Gentle, it has not disappointed in terms of smell (or lack of it) and performance. The detergent has left our clothes clean and bright (even those from my mess-prone kids) and any reside from food, dirt, grass or more simply disappears.

Available in 50 oz bottles all the way up to 170 oz, Tide Free & Gentle is a perfect example of a great clean that is gentle on skin. As Tide points out right on the bottle, "Style is an option. Clean is not."

Tide Free & Gentle detergent review

Found nationwide in retailers such as Walmart, Target, Home Depot and Sam's Club, Tide Free & Gentle just might be your detergent of choice if you are looking for a way to have clean, scent-free clothes for your whole family.

And, thanks to the generosity of Tide, three people will be able to try out a bottle of this great detergent for themselves, because...

Rita M said...

I started using it when my granddaughter was born & have kept using it for the whole family. It just made sense - I was using regular Tide already - why buy two different products when one can do the job!

Jerri Davis said...

I think that Tide is one of the Best Detergent there is. Thank you. Jerri Davis

kyonac1 said...

I use it because my son has sensitive skin and I prefer to use something that's free of dyes and perfumes.

Kimberly said...

We like Tide products and I have not tried this one yet
Kims2312@verizon.net

Tawny said...

I've used All Free since it came out because it has no inks, dyes, or perfumes. I've always heard Tide is the best, but could never try it because I have very sensitive skin & am allergic to the aforementioned things. So if Tide now has a formula that will work for me, if they let me try it free, I will. If it works better, I'll switch. As simple as that.

I would love to win this because all I have ever used is Gain.

Hey!!! First of all, I would like to say that YES I have tried this Tide, free and clear.... I LOVE the scent of my softener so much, I prefer to not let the detergent scent overpower it! TIDE rocks, pure and simple!

The second thing is, suddenly, these forms no longer allow me to use my Yahoo open ID. It just tells me open ID error. Any clues? It used to work just fine up until a few days ago.
