Gain Sweet Sizzle Fireworks Scent Booster - I Love It!
by Bad Grammy
I've gotten so many reviews of Gain Sweet Sizzle Fireworks Scent Booster that I've had to start another page for all of them. Here's the first one of the new set of reviews:
Bad Grammy says:
I saw an ad for this and decided to try it. I am a widow living alone, no kids or grands nearby, so I can do what I want.
I was given a huge supply of cleaners when I bought my water conditioning system so nothing is scented (except the oatmeal soap). This is a wonderful product!!
I wish I could move my dryer into the living room to maximize the scenting. However,the laundry room is a hall-like room between the house and the garage with doors on both sides so it can get stuffy. This is the answer!!!
Now I have to figure out how much to use so as not to disturb the bridge club....
Thanks so much for sharing your review of the Gain Sweet Sizzle scent booster.

An SR101 reader shared her rating of Gain Fireworks scent beads with me.
SR101 Reader says:
I just bought this product and washed my bed sheets in it and ABSOLUTELY love love LOVE it!
The smell is amazing and lasts for so long. The only thing to watch out for is to make sure not to put too much since the beads do carry an extreme amount of smell.
I give this a product an A- only because the price was a little high ($6.75) but if you are able to find coupons, then definitely try this product. It's amazing.
Thanks for sharing this review.
I have seen this product in my local stores, such as Walmart, but I cannot seem to find a place online that sells it (at least not for a more excessive price than it goes for in stores). I will keep looking around periodically though, just in case it does become available online.
Gain's Scent Beads Smell Like Original Downy April Fresh Scent
by SR101 Reader
An SR101 reader shared what she thought this scent smelled like.
SR101 reader says:
I'm so excited with this product because it smells just like the Original Downy April Fresh before they changed it to the horrible smell it is now!
I'm going to stock up on it now.
Thanks for telling me what you think it smells like!
Both Gain and Downy are manufactured by Procter & Gamble, so it smelling like an old Downy product is not completely outside the realm of possibility, although since they compete with one another it does seem somewhat strange.
Oh well, stranger things have happened, and no matter, I'm glad you like it.
***Update: At least one other person agrees with you. Another reader shared this comment with me:
I love this scent. It is the same scent as the original Downy April Fresh before they changed it a few years ago. So glad someone brought it back!
I Use Gain, Downy & Purex's Versions Of Scent Beads All At Once
Pam shares how she uses laundry scent boosters, in general.
Oh my, where do I start.....I use all three at once!
I have never enjoyed laundry so much in my life.
Haha Purex was the first brand I used because of price, I then opened the Gain and Downy brand beads and loved them!
So basically as I said I mix them all together and almost daily I get a compliment on how great my clothes and house smell after using these beads.
I have to say I spend more money weekly but I keep up on the laundry because of how addicted to these scents I am, and honestly I enjoy laundry.
Thanks for listening. I think I am going to email all three companies and rave about the products. Maybe I will get some coupons mailed to me.
Thanks for sharing what you do Pam, and I'm glad you are enjoying laundry this way.
It is nice when a task that is necessary can also be pleasant.
I would caution you, however, just to be careful with the amount of scent you're using, just so you don't cause allergic reactions. But, if you haven't experienced any by now, perhaps you just aren't allergic! :)
Cheryl has shared her experience with this product.
I bought a 13.2 oz bottle of Gain Fireworks at Krogers 3 days ago for $5.39. I love the scent!
So I went back to Krogers today to buy another bottle and this time the bottle was only 9.7 oz for the same price!
I was ripped off and I am not too happy about it. I will be returning the 9.7 oz bottle to Krogers for a refund tomorrow.
Sorry to hear about that Cheryl.
I wonder if this was the case of Kroger having a sale of the larger bottle of the same price as the smaller bottle, and the sale ended, or the more sinister case of manufacturers trying to pawn off a smaller amount of product for the same price, as a subtle way to increase the price per unit without you noticing?
I'm not sure, just from this experience, which one it was. I would be curious to hear from other readers, sharing if they've noticed the cost per unit of this product going up in price, or a shrinking of bottle size. You can share your experiences here.
It made me sick and I feel like I can taste it and I have a headache!
I used close to a capful (3/4 full) and I probably over-used it. I won't use it again. I am not a fan of the smell of dryer sheets!
It does sound like you may have overused it, but if you don't like the smell, you just don't like the smell.
On the other hand, if it gave you a headache you may also be suffering from an allergic reaction to the product. You definitely wouldn't be the first. At the link I've collected more experiences shared with me by readers.
Good luck finding something you like better, and thanks for sharing your opinion with me.
