So I boiled my piping bags & added Tide to the water, after they were done I rinsed them veryy good
when I used them today i noticed they have a very strong smell ( the smell of tide)
I was wondering would that effect the icing in any way?? I did add icing & tasted it after it came out of the tip it was perfect
any experience anyone??

yikes, I never would have thought to wash them with laundry soap. Usually I wash them by hand with some Palmolive, and they are good to go.
Good luck!

If it doesn't affect the icing, then maybe you could buy a small bottle of unscented Tide just for bags.

In this house, we all unscented products for laundry. This all thanks to our wonderful allergies. Once they are set off any scent will just aggravate it further, thus we went unscented all the way.

I also use the disposable bags. It's such a hassle to wash the fabric ones. Good Luck!

I've never used Tide to wash my bags. I've always just used Palmolive dishwashing liquid and hot water. I agree with the poster to just switch to the unscented kind if you want to continue using Tide.
