Re: Kirkland Users...

I use it on my regular clothes...but still stick with tide powder

I prefer powder as it isn't as sudsy as liquid and doesn't require as many rinses

Re: Kirkland Users...

I want to know if the industrial powder can be used in an HE machine?

Re: Kirkland Users...

When I ran out of Tide, I started using The Kirkland Signature Institutional Laundry Detergent because it was on hand and at first I thought it was great. Then after maybe 5-6 washes, I started noticing that they were coming out of the dryer not smelling super clean. I wouldn't say I had a STINK problem per sť, however I think I would have had one soon if I continued using it.

I switched back to Tide and after one wash they smelled clean again. I have been too scared to even try their Ultra formula on them since that experience with the industrial, but it works great on our clothes! I use Kirkland for clothes and Tide for diapers, I'm scared to use anything else now. I can't afford Tide for clothes too 'cause we is po'.

I have been using the environmentally friendly version for a long while now with no issues or such. Works great, cleans well and is safe with no bad stuff in it. :-) Try it!

We used the Kirkland f&c for our clothes forever, and rockin green on dipes. Then when my r&g ran out I tried the kirkland and LOVED it. I still miss it - we don't have a Costco membership anymore. :-( so I'm stuck detergent hopping until I find something I like again. I'm using tide's f&g right now and it's super sudsy and doesn't get the stink out.
