The directions on the box are easy to follow. I have a top loading washing machine,so I pour 1 pouch into my tub,then run it w/out clothes in the "clean washer" setting.For a non-HE model you would use the "normal" cycle w/hot water.Front loading machines the pouch goes in the detergent dispenser drawer.I tried the other product,but it never got close to the results of Tide!Clothes were coming out smelling musty & old,tho I had cleaned the machine.Till I used the Tide.When an odor already exists,Tide instructs to use 1 pouch/wk for 3 wks.After the 1st use,the entire house smelled awesome,my clothes were better.The 2nd one-WOW,what a difference,same whole house awesomeness,& my clothes better & better!!By the 3rd use,now my clothes stay fresh in the drawers for weeks!So now I use it monthly....no Cons here

Horrible, pervasive smell!

Horrible product. My front loading washer didn't even smell bad because I always leave the door open a bit so it will dry out after use. But I thought there might be some residue build-up. Immediately after the cycle started with this product (following all directions to the letter), my house was filled with an overwhelming and horrible smell that almost immediately gave me a terrible headache. I opened all windows, turned on all ceiling fans & floor fans, but the smell is so pervasive that the laundry room and areas near it still smell 2 days later. Not to mention the washer--it still has the horrible "perfume" smell. I ran the machine through 12 complete cycles in an effort to get rid of the smell, without success. I then ran old towel through a cycle & found that the towel came out with the same awful "perfume" smell. I don't know if that old towel will ever be useable again. Today, I am trying running the machine using vinegar (on the 2nd try now) to try to rid it of the smell so I can use my machine again. Meantime, I have wasted so much water during a drought, in an effort to rid my machine of the smell. I emailed the company with my complaint & request for refund, but have not yet received a reply. This is probably the worst product I have ever tried.

    Just as easy to use bleach in the machine and save the money on this expensive product that seems to do very little.

      I have used this item at least once a month for a number of years. Bleach water does not remove everything and this item does shine up the stainless steel drum. I do not think there is a down side to this product as it is very easy to use.

          This is an o.k. product however the scent is horrible! I would not buy it again because it was so overwhelming when I used it that I was forced to open windows in my laundry room! I prefer unscented products and this definitely needs to be that way for me to buy it again. I wish Seventh Generation made a cleaner because all of their products are non-toxic and cruelty free. I doubt Tide is.

            Use this product once a month and your washer always smells good. It will never smell of stale water.

                    IM sorry that I didn't read one of the other users comments before purchasing this product. If you have a front loader DO NOT put the powder in the poweder dispenser as it will not completely disolve and you will be left with a lumpy mess in the dispenser. It is NOT an HE powder. I had to remove the dispenser and clean it out and run the machine againg to make sure there was no chemical residue left over. I am actually very surprised at Proctor and Gamble as usually their products are excellent.
                    I have used Affresh in the past and it does a fantastick job...so for now I will stick with that.

                          I read the directions on the label for a front loader and It recommended putting the powdered soap in the pull out tray and set the machine to normal-hot water. I knew this was wrong, because it's not high efficiency soap, but i did it anyway. After the machine was done i opened the tray to find a messy clump of undesolved powder.

                          I then set my machine to basket clean and after it cleaned the mess was gone. Bottom line is don't follow the instructions for front loaders that use he detergent. Instead set the washer to basket clean.

                            I love this. My Service agreement company came by for a maintenance check. They suggested that I buy their product to clean my washing machine. I went online and found this. It is reasonably priced and it smells good.
