    I always use Tide I am going to have to get some of these pods to try out.

  2. I have never used Tide Pods before. I should check them out and see if they make the clothes cleaner than what I use right now.

  3. These pods are certainly a new craze in laundry. I personally have never used them but they seem really ease and mess free for moms who do a lot of laundry like me!

  4. I love the pods, they make laundry so much quicker and easier. I am all about saving time on boring tasks like household chores.

  5. I really love Tide pods. Several years ago, I taught each of my kids to do their own laundry which saved me SO much work. However, using liquid detergent meant there were often spills for me to clean up. I finally took the advice of a woman in the laundry aisle at the store, and started using pods instead. Instant portion control, no messes, and I don’t have to worry about the kids “forgetting” to put the detergent in — they love using Tide pods!
