Instructions say: 1) Handle with dry hands 2) Add pac to drum 3) Add clothes.


OK, I assume that "drum" is the big opening in front where you add the clothes. The machine is a Tromm front loader which calls for HE detergent (I use Tide liquid HE) and it's not added to the "drum" but to a little drawer on top of the machine. So, do I use both the HE detergent in the top as usual and the Pod in the "drum" or do I use only the Pod sample and forget the HE? Thanx.

You don't use the pod AT ALL - you ONLY use HE detergent.

Well, I'll be darned. It would have been nice for the pkg. to advise us not to be used in HE washers.


One of the clerks in the super mkt. walked by and stuck the sample in my bag as I was using the self-checkout register. Thanks.

My package of Tide pods indicates they are HE compatible. I throw them into the drum of my front loader. Haven't had any issues.

No detergent in the top; pod in the drum... and you are good to go!

I use the pods in a HE washer. Never had a single problem. Just throw it in the drum.

And I throw it in after the load. No difference.

Thanks to all who responded.


Well, it advertises as a great stain remover but it didn't remove blood spatter on two t-shirts.


Guess I'll go back to HE detergent and, for stains, Shout, although they didn't work either.

Some kind person sent me this message but I don't know how to open the rest of it:


"If you haven't thrown the garments in the dryer, try using hydrogen peroxide on the bloodstains. If you've dried them ....."


They're in the dryer now.

I accidentally posted it before finishing. ..sorry! The drier will set the stain, making it virtually impossible to remo6. If you have a difficult stain, don't throw the garment into the dryer. Let it air dry then you can try something else. Good luck.
