Wife got them on sale and with coupon. I will attest, the do not work well in clothes washer. Have found parts of the pods stuck to fabric after they come out of dryer. As for dishwasher, we use the packets. The detergent door doesn't work so they do come in handy.
This is all the proof that we need that IQ's are dropping precipitously, all across the country, generation after generation. I remember, awhile back, when the big trend was the gallon milk challenge. The idea was to try to drink a gallon of milk in a set period of time. Maybe you got half an hour, maybe more, I can't recall. The problem was that milk is such a dense food item that it's extremely difficult to put down a whole gallon in less than an hour. All three macronutrients are present, protein, carbohydrate and fat. An enormous number of calories. The worst that happens to you, though, is extreme gastric upset. You just might vomit. But, milk at least is food. Tide Pods...? The idiots have gone completely past stupid into moronic territory.
