I like Tide but it's pricey so I tend to opt for cheaper brands - and really when you get down to it IMO they all clean about the same.

When money wasn't so tight I would be happy to shell out for Tide. I kept my eye out for sales though, if All or Cheer had a much better deal I would purchase those.

Today I use the Method brand sold at Target. method: home care and personal care products

I tried it because it was on sale, and I really prefer it now. No more super huge bottles with leaky caps. It can fit in one hand and it has a pump cap plus it's better for the enviornment.

When I read an article about how many people use too much detergent which doesn't make clothes any more cleaner, I paid more attention to how much I was using. Growing up if the washer wasn't full of sudsy bubbles in the water my mother complained we didn't use enough detergent. Glad to be rid of that nonsense. No more arm breaking orange bottles for me, I'll stick to the low frills brand that gets the job done.

Before this thread gets moved My job used to have me on the road all the time and I had to use laundromats. There you need a lot of quarters, not only for the machines and dryers but also the vending machines with the detergents. The Tide box from the machine would do two laundry loads vs one by other brands. One never has enough quarters and pays attention to laundry done vs quarters expended
