Tide PODS® Coldwater Clean laundry pacs offer an effective clean in only one step, even in cold water conditions. Tide's cold water detergent dissolves completely in cold water and does not produce excess suds, thanks to the Tide PODS®' special film and HE Turbo technology.

Likewise, how long does it take for Tide Pods to dissolve? I took a Pods laundry detergent hung it up with a thread 3/4 of the way submersed in water and time lapse video it dissolving. About 45 minutes.

Furthermore, why are my Tide Pods not dissolving?

The detergent pod can have trouble dissolving all the way if the washer is overloaded, if the cycle time is too short or if using very cold water for washing clothes. These situations can create conditions where there isn't enough water or time for the pod to fully dissolve.
