Re: Woah Nelly! So that is what ammonia smells like!
I am washing towels on hot. I agree, anything but hot just does not cut it with towels.
Interesting about the sudsing. I did not notice extra suds so much as just a leftover detergent smell on the diapers that I did not have with Tide. But everything is soooo much cleaner now, I will take the lingering detergent smell.
Used to be I could smell towel 'funk' as soon as I opened the dryer. Totally gone. There is a slight hint of 'funk' smell still, but it is much improved. I have a feeling it will improve with additional washings without Tide.
And someone local had a theory that Tide changed their other formulas so people would switch to their new pods. They were having Tide issues as well.
