Stores are Locking Down Tide Laundry Detergent
Wow...this is a new one. Apparently thieves have discovered there is a hot black market for Tide Laundry Detergent and are stealing it by shopping cart loads and selling by scoops at laundry mats..
I never buy Tide as I think it is overpriced. I always buy one of the cheaper brands, unless it is on sale..but geeez, who would of thought this??

Re: Stores are Locking Down Tide Laundry Detergent
I agree, Tide is way overpriced. I make my own laundry detergent, it's so cheap to do.

Baby formula is another item that is stolen by organized crime. I used to work in retail and I watched on camera how someone filled up a large rubbermaid container full of powdered baby formula. They can easily get away with it if they come during the busiest time.

Don't they know about tide pods? The far less messy and would be easier to transport and sell at said laundry mats.

Re: Stores are Locking Down Tide Laundry Detergent
Part of the reason for the underground market for tide is its liquidity. Not literal liquidity but fiscal liquidity. Everyone needs detergent; it is easy to negotiate with a black market dealer to take detergent instead of a full cash payment. I used to work at a certain retail store and there was a man who constantly got caught stealing tide. There was a police report written about how he was using it to barter payments to others for various illegal things. It is a very interesting way to launder money, so to speak.

I agree; it's overpriced but with coupons it is comparable to other popular brands.

I'm starting to make my own detergent occasionally and have been experimenting with formulas.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32715303



or you can try this liquid version, you dont have to dissolve the soap before each load, I pour it in my old empty bleach containers or other gallon bottles. Takes about 5 mins to cook and each batch lasts me about 2 months with a family of 6.

1/3 bar Fels Naptha or other type of soap, as listed above
½ cup washing soda
½ cup borax powder
~You will also need a small bucket, about 2 gallon size~

Grate the soap and put it in a sauce pan. Add 6 cups water and heat it until the soap melts. Add the washing soda and the borax and stir until it is dissolved. Remove from heat. Pour 4 cups hot water into the bucket. Now add your soap mixture and stir. Now add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water and stir. Let the soap sit for about 24 hours and it will gel. You use ½ cup per load.


The finished soap will not be a solid gel. It will be more of a watery gel that has been accurately described as an "egg drop soup" look.

The soap is a low sudsing soap. So if you don’t see suds, that is ok. Suds are not what does the cleaning, it is the ingredients in the soap. Hard water makes it have less bubbles


If you want your soap to have some sort of scent you can scent this with ½ to 1 oz. of essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice. I buy the stuff from the dollar store in the little jars.

Calculations:

Washing Soda - 55 ounce box
1/2 Cup = 5 ounces
Each box has 11 "servings"

Borax - 76 ounce box
1/2 Cup = 3 ounces
Each box has 25 "servings"

Fels Naptha
Each bar has 3 "servings"

The items below will make 22 batches
You'll need:
2 boxes of Washing Soda (22 full recipes)
1 box of Borax (22 full recipes + 3 extra servings)
8 bars of Fels Naptha (22 full recipes +2 extra servings)

Washing soda is about 5 bucks a box
Borax is about 4 bucks a box
Fels Naptha is about 1.30 a bar x8bars= 10.40
So for under 20 bucks you can wash your clothes for over a yr, and it works better than store bought detergent.

I have a septic tank and have never had a problem with it in case anyone was worried about that.

I had to google Napalm...

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]


Napalm is a thickening/gelling agent generally mixed with petroleum or a similar fuel for use in an incendiary device, initially against buildings and later primarily as an anti-personnel weapon. "Napalm" is a combination of the names of two of the constituents of the gel: naphthenic acid and palmitic acid.

"Napalm B" is the more modern version of napalm and, although distinctly different in its chemical composition, it is often referred to simply as "napalm".[1]

Colloquially, napalm has been used as the generic name of several flammable liquids used in warfare, often forms of jellied gasoline, such as to be expelled by flamethrowers in infantry and armored warfare.


WTF are the people stealing this up to?
~"For the total development of the human being, solitude as a means of cultivating sensitivity becomes a necessity. One has to know what it means to be alone, what it is to meditate, what it is to die; and the implications of solitude, of meditation, of death, can be known only by seeking them out. These implications cannot be taught, they must be learned."

Now, they're stealing TIDE from peoples homes!!!

Surveillance images show a man wearing a ball cap and hooded sweatshirt walking up to the back porch. He breaks or cuts the screen and spends an enormous amount of time unlocking the door, after which he takes the beer and Tide laundry soap.

Re: Stores are Locking Down Tide Laundry Detergent
I was in CVS yesterday, for the second month in a row a decent quality laundry detergent was available with your CVS card for under $2 for a 32 load bottle. I did not need any as I have extra stocked up now bought at similar prices. I do not use any name brand products except maybe Pepsi or Coke. Supplies are still available at the dollar store. Name brands are generally a waste of money.
