Long a darling of consumer product testing magazines, Tide definitely works well to clean your clothing - removing both the dirt you see and the dirt you don't see, like perspiration. As with the rest of the Dreams collection, Tide plus a Touch of Downy Sweet Dreams bills itself as ideal for washing sheets, pajamas and nighttime fabrics, but I imagine most people don't wash these items separately from their other laundry.
This product smells lovely while doing an exceptional job of cleaning, even grabbing some stains that missed getting pre-treatment spray. I washed some extremely dirty, smelly clothes in this product, and everything came out spectacularly clean, bright and fresh-smelling.
Tide plus a Touch of Downy Sweet Dreams retails for $13.99 for a 48-load bottle, but you can pick it up at Walmart for about $11.97. As with all the products in this review, you can shave some money off the cost by using P&G's regular Sunday newspaper coupon inserts.
Using the Tide, Downy and Unstopables together results in a scent that lingers on your sheets and bedclothes for over a week. You get a pleasant whiff when dressing in the morning, too, assuming that you wash all of your clothing together using the same products. P&G's Sweet Dreams collection of laundry products offers outstanding performance with a twist of aromatherapy.
