Works fine, but better can be had for less

I'm a big fan of Tide products, so I probably expected more from the Tide Stain Release Duo Pac than what I actually got. And that's a shame.

The pac is similar to the all-in-one packets you use in dishwashers. Heaven help you if you touch them with damp hands, or if you live in a humid area! Total mess!

Anyway, you use regular detergent and throw one of these in to up the stain-cleaning power. I used the combo pac on a load of whites.

The result was okay, but to be honest, I've had better results on whites from using detergent and borax. I can see the ease of use (minus humidity), but this is way too expensive for pretty mediocre results.

That's disappointing. I'm love Tide detergent. This novelty isn't up to their standards (and I can't imagine it'll be around in a year.)

What did you think of this review?

Good to know and I agree, it can be a total mess if you use this with wet hands or in humidity! Sounds like a pass.

Even though Tide is my laundry detergent of choice, I really didn't think I would care for this product; my first thought was that it was going to just be one more thing to clutter up my already crowded laundry closet. I figured there wasn't really much it could do for me that my Spray 'n Wash Stain Stick couldn't do. I was a mixture of right and wrong. For the tough stains that I know about, I'll keep on using my stain stick. That latte spill on my white shirt didn't fully come out with just the …

I usually don't like frilly laundry stuff - regular detergent and dryer sheets are all that I use. I was initially skeptical of these Tide booster pacs since they looked like little packs of detergent powder. However, I went online and compared the ingredients of the booster pacs and plain old Tide detergent, and the booster pacs do have a few other ingredients mixed in. There's a component to remove water hardness, a bleach activator, an oxygen bleach, several process aid chemicals not …

A great boost to your wash. Tide Stain Release boosters add a punch to stain cleaning. They also smell great and very convenient to use, without causing any mess. A word of advice/caution: They smell great and may look like candy to some. Therefore, keep them away from the little hands' reach!

I've never really used anything like these before. Normally I just throw my laundry into the machine, toss in the detergent (Tide lately), and then go from there. Sometimes if I feel really wild, I'll use a drier sheet. So I don't really have any basis for comparing this to other products of the same stripe.    I will say that it didn't do anything really noticeable to some of the stains on my clothing. Those that were there when I put them into the laundry were there when I …
