I really like the Tide Coldwater Laundry Detergent. It is great for washing all of your dark clothes or colors that bleed very easily that cannot be washed in hot water. This detergent is very effective at removing stains from the clothes. The scent is very pleasing and is indeed very fresh. It lasts for a long time on the clothes also. The only part I hate is that I really like to wash my white clothes in hot water and use a little bleach. It almost makes the whole point of this laundry detergent pointless. This formula works as well as hot water, but for some reason I just do not feel like my clothes get as clean, but this is just a mental thing. They are as clean and fresh as using hot water so if you can get past using hot water then this is the perfect detergent for you. It will save you money on hot water and since you will not have color bleeding you could potentially wash all of your clothes together in one load (though I have not tried it so the colors might still bleed). I still would recommend using this detergent though because I really love Tide!

I give Tide Coldwater Liquid Laundry Detergent, Fresh Scent a 10 rating overall, as it gives a superior clean that Tide is known for and has the clean, fresh scent I know and love. I have an HE washing machine, so I am glad it is safe for HE. I also like the measuring cup built into the cup, you are not saving money if you are just pouring in more than you need. Washing in cold water is meant to save money by not using the electricity to heat your water, and Tide Coldwater detergent does not need the heat to clean your clothes. I have found it to be a little expensive, but you really get what you pay for with this Tide. I have never had to rewash clothes, I get clean, fresh clothes after 1 wash, using the recommended amount of detergent. It rinses well, I have never experienced soapy residue on any of my laundry, something I was worried about in a cold wash load. I trust Tide Coldwater detergent for all my families laundry.
Tide Coldwater laundry detergent was launched in 2005 by P&G as a way to for consumers to switch to cold water washes to help save energy, reduce their carbon footprint and cut down on household utility costs. Heating water for laundry loads accounts for up to 80 percent of the energy used per wash load in the U.S.
