Tide - and other laundry detergents - are easy to steal because the people stealing them can grab and go. They`ve got handles, so most stores don`t even bag them, unless you ask. A person can walk with it past people and it`s not immediately obvious that it`s stolen - or going to be shortly.

It`s more likely that Tide can be used to make crystal meth or something.

Uh huh. Yeah right Reason Magazine. Druggies are stealing Tide because it can be used as a currency and is a hedge against inflation.
