    Doh People are Stealing Tide Detergent? Or 1 more reason to MYO!

    Apparently Tide liquid laundry detergent is sufficiently expensive and it is now being stolen in large amounts. In some cases it has been used as payment for drugs and has been found by police in drug busts along side the drugs.

    Retailers are considering some sort of shoplifting deterrent device on individual bottles

    A Tide Liquid shortage is one less worry in my life thanks to Budget 101

    It is spendy, I think they are charging more because they are for HE washers (I have a hard time finding detergent that is not HE). $7+ for a small bottle, that is crazy. People will steal whatever they can to make $.

    Can you imagine what the price will be like when they start installing extra security on individual Tide bottles. I love making my own detergent!

    Not only do I like that I don't have to pay such a high price for detergent, but I love that I know what goes in it when I make it. Piece of mind.

    i cant believe people are actually doing this. i don't think tide is all that great to begin with. it breaks my sons skin out.

    i make my own, his skin is much better and the towels are more absorbent than when i used store bought detergent.
