How to Use Tide PODS Laundry Detergent - The Correct Way! (WIth Pictures)

1. Examine your Tide PODS. 

All cute and comfy in their little orange container. They smell great!

2. Never mind the directions on the top of the box about throwing the pods right into the wash because water will automatically dissolve them. That's for rookies! You're on the pro-track now because you're reading these pro-tips!


3. Take your favorite glass cup and put your desired amount of tip pods in them

Personally, I like this Samuel Adams glass cup I found in the cupboard. Not that I consume Samuel Adams (their ads on Spotify piss me off), it's just a good, clear, no-frills, glass cup

4. Come back in 15 minutes and see the following:

Following the noob directions would have meant un-dissolved Tide Pods after 15 minutes into the cold wash, right about when the quick wash's rinse cycle starts! =D

Note: Alternatively, you could also use steaming HOT water, and that'll make the pods dissolve much faster (e.g. within a minute)

5. Stir the crap out of your drink and keep waiting until everything dissolves (Pro-tip - Chopsticks work well)

6. Now, since we don't want to be carrying our good-ol reliable Sammy Adams glass cup to the laundry room, and since we also don't want to pour our drink on our dirty clothes just yet, we need a bottle to put it in. (Yes, as a member of the proletariat I need to physically leave my dwelling space in order to do the laundry, since I'm not bougie enough to have a washer/dryer inside my apartment)

I highly recommend the Soylent 2.0 plastic bottles. (Once you've drunk your soylent)

7. CAREFULLY, pour your now-dissolved Tide Pod into your Soylent 2.0 bottle.

8. For the frugal ones out there, take a piece of dirty clothing that you're about to wash and wipe up the residue detergent from the inside of good-ol Sammy Adams. I recommend the pant legs of a cotton pair of pajamas

7. Take your load to the washer and do the usual, pouring your beautiful goop into the detergent ingesting box

And voila!! You've successfully and correctly used Tide Pods!

For the adventurous ones out there, you can bypass steps 3 through 8 by DIRECTLY shoving the Tide Pods into the Soylent 2.0 bottle and putting hot water into the bottle.

If anyone needs some empty Soylent 2.0 bottles, hollar-at-me!
