Gain Spring Lavender Liquid Detergent Review - Use It For My Babies Clothes
Jacquie has shared her review of Gain Spring Lavender scented detergent.
When I had my daughter about a year ago I purchased Gain Lavender Liquid Detergent. The smell is light and soft.
I used it on everything in her room. The bedding, blankets and her clothes. I loved the smell and it filled her room with the sweetest smell every time I walked in.
I chose Gain because it removes stains for all of her little messes while keeping that sweet baby smell. I still use the Lavender scent even now, a year later, because it still reminds me of that first day we brought her home. Thanks Gain!
Thanks for sharing your review of this detergent scent Jacquie.
Does anyone else use any of the lavender scented products? I know they have not only lavender scented laundry supplies, but also a lavender and vanilla scented dishwashing liquid.
Hawaiian Aloha Liquid With Febreze Freshness Gain Review
Kim has shared her review of the Gain scent, Hawaiian Aloha, which also has Febreze added to the formula.
I have been an avid user of Gain for many years. My mother used it while I was growing up, and when I became an adult, I started using it myself. It has been the only brand that I have used that not only has gotten out most of the stains in my clothes, but it's one of the few that I am not allergic to.
Against my better judgment I grabbed the bottle of Hawaiian Aloha liquid Gain. I must say I am glad I picked it up. Not only did it clean like the same old Gain I have been used to all these years, but my clothes had a fresh new scent that I loved. But best of all, I didn't have any allergic reaction to it at all!
It wasn't overpowering and had a nice light tropical smell. My family and I loved the scent so much that we wanted to try the fabric softener and dryer sheets too. Unfortunately, they don't make these extra products for this scent family -- but I sure hope they start soon, because I know I'd buy them.
Thanks for sharing your review Kim. I guess this scent isn't as popular as some of the others or they would have more coordinating scent products for it.
I would love to hear from others who has used it. I am thinking it sounds like it may be similar to Gain Island Fresh (see a review below). Is it, or is my assumption incorrect? If it is similar perhaps you could use the fabric softener and dryer sheets for that scent with this detergent. Just an idea, but not sure it would work for you.
Gain Floral Fusion Detergent Review - Great For Removing Pet Smells From Laundry
Patricia shared her review of the Gain scent family called "Floral Fusion."
Living with pets can be a laundry challenge, especially when one of the cats sometimes does a "protest pee" on the dog's bed.
I knew I needed a nice smelling detergent to meet this challenge. I bought regular liquid Floral Fusion after smelling it in the store. "Nice and strong, that will cover it up," I thought.
I took my dirty clothes and dog bed to the laundromat and chose the "pre wash, warm" setting. I didn't use detergent booster or fabric softener. What a surprise when I was done and my clothes and dog bed came out of the dryer. Everything was clean and smelling great. What was more, Gain didn't cover up the odor, it actually removed it. No residual smells, no cover ups, and nice smelling laundry!
I love the fact that Gain makes so many different scents, and I wonder what I will be in the mood for next time I bring home a bottle.
Thanks for your review Patricia. It is always good to know about a good laundry pet odor stain remover, especially that can get rid of cat urine smell. That can be difficult to do.
I would love to hear from even more people who have used this Gain laundry scent, telling what you think about it, and how it worked for you. You can share your experiences here.
Rose shared her review of the Island Fresh scent of Gain detergent.
I have been buying Gain laundry detergent for many years and recently tried out the Island Fresh scent. Not only is the scent fabulous but the detergent itself leaves clothes looking brighter.
I can't use powder detergents due to allergies and I've found that when I use other brands, if my clothes don't get all the way dry they get that damp smell to them. With the Gain I did not have that issue.
It's enough of a hint of smell, and it is not too overpowering. In addition, you don't have to use a lot per load. I highly recommend it. I love this scent!
The price of Gain is also typically about $3.00 less than Tide, so I first came across purchasing it due to its slightly lower price. Then I started sniffing caps and just love that they have fruity smells, and not just floral ones.
Thanks for sharing your review of the Island Fresh scent of Gain.
If others have used this product, in either the detergent, fabric softener or dryer sheets, I would love to hear what you thought of it too. You can share your opinions here.
Gain Detergent Scents I Like In Order Of Preference
Ina has shared her favorite Gain scents, in order of preference.
Sorry to say that nothing can compare to the original (from back in the 70's) Gain scent!!!!!
That being said, "cotton fresh" came close to being as pleasing a scent that could be found in laundry detergent.
I am now using floral fusion. It's okay, if its all there is.
Thanks for sharing your preferences Ina. Seems like Gain keeps taking away the scents you like most though, since they've tweaked the original scent of the product and discontinued the Touch of Softness Fresh Cotton scent.
The floral fusion scent is still available, however, but too bad it is your least favorite.
Mary shared her review of the Ocean Escape scent of Gain laundry detergent.
I have used Gain Ocean Escape (regular formula) on several occasions. I really like this detergent. It has a fresh, clean, and crisp scent that lingers on my clothes but isn't too strong.
I love how it makes my laundry room smell when I'm washing, very fresh and natural. I also love how my clothes smell when I take them out of the dryer. I find that I don't need any fabric softener or dryer sheets when using this product.
I do still have to use pretreaters (I use Shout) however, as I don't find that the detergent gets out all stains on its own (even with a short soak before washing).
I've had particular difficulty when it comes to some food stains. Ketchup and grape jelly seem to be particularly difficult to get out, as are any blood stains.
Thanks for sharing your observations about what stains this detergent does and does not easily remove on its own Mary. I always find this information very helpful for other readers! :)
