Tide Coldwater Review

I have to admit I have used Tide off and on over the years but mostly off because it cost more than the other brands unless there was a sale and I had coupons, well, then, I stocked up as much Tide laundry detergent as my uttility closet would hold! Now they have come out with a new version of Tide called Tide Coldwater that works purely in cold water.

I waited a few weeks to write about Tide because I wanted to make sure that I washed enough clothes and that they all came clean. Gosh, I even washed all our bathroom and kitchen rugs tonight in cold water and they came out looking pretty near perfect! And that is saying alot with rugs in my house. Everyone thinks it okay to wipe their feet once on the rugs placed all over the place and then just keep walking. Lord, I have such a mess sometimes! I live in Georgia and we have alot of that Georgia red clay and that is one of the hardest things to get out of clothes!

The best part of all of this is that you are helping to conserve energy and save yourself some money on your electric or gas bill! One of the things I mentioned above was our kitchen and bathroom rugs.

Well, Charlie (our Yorkie) who is 3 1/2 years old still misses the puppy pads in the middle of the night when it is pitch dark in here and so he goes on the rugs that I have in the kitchen. I guess they sorta look like a puppy pad to him.

Which, if he is going to do it, I would rather he did it on the rugs as they are easiest to clean. And I could not smell anything on them so I know it worked!

I hope that you too, will give Tide Coldwater a chance to show you what it can do. I was really amazed that it could still clean this good with cold water. I have known for some time that cold water works but I always thought i had to use bleach with it to get the same crisp clean clothes or sheets. Now, I don't have to use all those harsh chemicals just to get my clothes clean.

Great review- I couldnt use Tide when I was younger because it made me itch.
Maybe I'll give the coldwater version a try.

Have a great weekend-
