Consumer Reports has just released a report, stating that Kirkland Signature’s Ultra Clean Laundry Detergent Pacs perform slightly better than Tide Pods and are cheaper, 8 cents less per load!
The Tide Pods came in first last year and was the only laundry detergent pod recommended but it looks like Costco’s Kirkland brand has nudged them out of first place this year.
We haven’t used these laundry detergent pacs/pods/tablets before. But the instructions seem simple enough. Put 1 pac into the washer drum, then add laundry.
1 pac = 1 medium load.
The pacs look like laundry detergent pre-measured and packed into individual units that presumably dissolves in water (so you shouldn’t touch it with wet hands!).
The container states some patented “Catch and Release Technology” though it’s not clear what that is exactly.
There are 90 pacs in one container and it costs $13.99. There is a $2.75 coupon (limit 1) in June’s coupon book.
This would reduce the price to $11.24 or $0.125 per load. The Tide Pods costs $0.233 per load.
Item number 689476.
The coupon is valid from 06/13/13 to 07/07/13.
Have you tried the Kirkland Signature laundry pacs? Do you like it?
