Washing with tide

I see many people use tide. How much do you use when washing? I am worried that I will use too much. Please help

Re: Washing with tide

I use liquid HE F&C and always fill up the three line (sometimes a little over if I am not paying attention).

Re: Washing with tide

I use liquid original Tide and always use to the first line - the amount for a normal load.

Re: Washing with tide

I think it depends on your load size. You can't use too much IMO so no worries! Just go by what it says on the bottle for your load size to start, and adjust from there. If you have hard water or notice your diapers still stink after being washed, increase to more than the recommended amount. (Seriously, I have hard water and always use at least up to the 2 line, sometimes I just don't even bother looking at the lines and pretty much fill up the whole cap. Never had a problem with my diapers.) If you notice that your diapers are getting clean and smell fine, but you're noticing build up, then it's time to strip and adjust down to using a little less.

I use powdered Tide (ultra) and have to make sure not to use more than up to the 1 line on the scoop or else I'll be rinsing all day, and that's for a LARGE load. For a smaller load I only use like half of that. I was getting build up from using too much and it's such a PITA.
