Place the package (s) on the back or bottom of the machine basket, not in the dispenser drawer. The number of packages required depends on the size of the load. Place the clothes in the washing machine on top of the package. Use the fabric and machine care instructions to select the correct washing program.
Bellows and assemblies work well with standard top-loading discs and high-performance front-loading (HE) discs. If your washing machine has automatic detergent or rinse aid, ignore them. The pad should NEVER be placed directly in the basket of a dispenser drawer.
1 main detergent compartment: main detergent, water softener, prewash detergent, bleach and stain remover. 2 Rinse aid compartment: Fabric softener (fill up to the MAX mark). 3 Pre-wash: detergent for pre-wash or starch.
Wax bellows cause more severe symptoms. In addition to vomiting, lethargy and delirium, some victims have stopped breathing. Another common danger is eye injuries. And since 2013, at least two babies have died after swallowing the bellows.
Your bellows are actually very concentrated tides (bellows cleaner is 10% water, while regular liquid cleaner is 90% water) in a small square soluble film. The protective film dissolves completely in water without endangering the environment.
The bellows does not contain fabric softener. So, if you usually want to add fabric softener to your clothes, do it anyway.
They first became popular in February 2012 when they were introduced as Tide Pods by Procter & Gamble. The chemistry of detergent packaging is the same as for liquid laundry detergents (including alkylbenzenesulphonates). Soluble packaging usually consists of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) or a derivative of PVA.
Fabric softeners and dryers help remove static electricity and creases, making clothes smoother and more fragrant. However, they work in different ways. Liquid fabric softener is added to the wash cycle and penetrates the fibers of the fabric.
If you are using the bellows, throw them in the tub. Do not put them in the detergent drawer. Even with top magazines, they are thrown away before washing so that the bellows are at the bottom, under the clothes.
The outer shell of a tide stick is made of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), a water-soluble plastic compound. For the same reason that this pack dissolves in the washing machine, it can also dissolve in someone’s mouth which will immediately release and absorb the contents.
If that doesn’t work, Tide recommends:
In any case, the answer would be no. There is no scientific way that using a POD and drainage in household pipes can cause blockages. Using some type of detergent in the water before it enters the pipes is actually a non-slip mechanism.
Stick to liquids for cleaner clothes and less hassle with the washing machine. When it comes to washing clothes, washing powders and liquid detergents are not that different. Liquid detergent is better for greasy stains, while powdered detergent is better for removing sludge.
To clog a clogged drain, first fill a bucket with boiling water and a bag of baking soda. Remove the drain hose from the washing machine and slowly pour the water down the drain using a funnel. Wait a few minutes and try to see if it continues to flow when you pour water on it.
How to dose Tide PODS®:
The 3-in-1U Turbo Wash Pads Tide Pods were almost as good at tackling hard spots as liquid tides.
If only one or two spots of color have been transferred to an item of clothing, Reichert recommends trying oxygen bleach first. First, dissolve the oxygen bleach in warm water and add enough cold water to cool the mixture. Soak the garment in this solution for 1530 minutes, then rinse.
Add ½ cup of Clorox® Bleach 2 to the wash water after washing, but before adding clothes. For best results, we recommend adding ½ cup of Clorox® 2 Bleach to the water five minutes after the start of the wash. After starting the wash cycle, put the laundry in the wash water.
