When I was younger I used all sorts of laundry detergents. I had used Arm and Hammer, Sun, Tide, Purex, and so on. But shortly after I had gotten married I had to permanently switch to Gain for all of my washing necessities. My husband has really sensitive skin when it comes to laundry detergents. The only laundry detergent brand that my husband didn't have an allergic reaction to was Gain. I was a little disappointed at first because Gain was one of the higher cost name brand laundry detergents that was on the market. But after a few times washing my clothes with Gain, I fell in love with it. The scent is fantastic and the smell lasts for days, not like some of the past detergents I had used. I have been using Gain for over ten years now and I have never grown tired of using it. I love the way Gain leaves my clothes smelling fresh and clean for days and my husband loves the fact that he don't break out in hives by wearing something that has been washed in Gain. For years I had used non-High Efficiency laundry detergent, but a few months ago we switched to a High Efficiency washer and had to switch to laundry detergent that was made for high efficiency washers. I guess because HE washers use less water to wash clothing, that if you use regular detergent your clothing will not be able to thoroughly rinse out all the soap suds in your clothes or washer. High Efficiency detergents causes less soap suds than regular detergent, so that your clothes will get a thorough washing and rinsing. I highly recommend any Gain laundry detergent for your washing needs. If you have a sensitivity to all different kinds of laundry detergents give Gain a try, it worked for my husband and it could work for you as well.

I used to use a generic store brand laundry detergent. However, after moving to California, this store brand detergent was not able to keep up with mud and grass stains that are natural fallouts of an active outdoors lifestyle. So, acting upon an advertisement in a grocery store, I purchased the Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent, for use with my front-loading clothes washer. This laundry detergent has a terrific smell, and my clothes smell good for a couple of days after washing them. However, the Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent produces way too much soap bubbles during the wash cycle. Also, since the detergent is so pricey, I had expected a better clean. Although the Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent washes out most of the mud, dirt, grass, ketchup, and mustard stains, the outlines of the stains, as well as faint traces of the stain still remain on the garments after washing them with this detergent. Also, unless I use a fabric softener during the wash, my clothes feel very coarse and rough after washing with the Gain High Efficiency Detergent. Overall, the Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent is good for darker clothes, but I would not recommend it for lighter colored garments, or for whites.

      Comments about Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent:

      After trying many detergents i finally stumbled upon gain and fell in love. I am a mother of 2 kids and all moms know how much laundry detergent matters when doing laundry. I do 2-3 loads of laundry a day to maintain my household and gain has never disappointed our family. I suffer from sensitive skin and have to be careful what detergent i use. I have been using gain for years and never had any problems . It leaves our clothes soft,good smelling and nice and clean. I will continually buy gain for my family and recommendit to my friends and family.

        Comments about Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent:

        This is an absolutely fantastic laundry detergent. Gain HE has been able to do what many other detergents could not do which is actually get the stains out of everyone's clothes, keep a long lasting scent, and keeps fabrics soft without damaging it. This is one of a few detergents I use, but this is definitely one of the best. I am very skeptical when picking out detergent because I've spent a lot of money and have to rewash shirts and my kids and husbands clothes with no results except for ruining the clothes because of rewashing. Gain is a trusted brand especially when I was growing up and I figured if I could find their brand that works I'm sticking to it. With eight year old twins and a messy husband when it comes to eating, this really got out bad stains without having to re wash or using a harsh cleaner with a bad smell. This smells great and it actually lasts. If you don't like fabric softener then this is perfect because the scent lasts at least a couple of weeks. So far I've gotten out bad grass stains from my kids and ketchup and even oil. When you have children it helps to save time and money with something that actually works and if you don't it's nice to just save the money. Definitely try it if you're in the market and looking for a new favorite detergent. Mom approved twins tested!

        We love the smell of Gain. We use everything Gain in our home. It was one of the few soaps I have found that doesn't bother my skin. It's easy to find and cleans very well.

          Gain Is a Highly Efficient Detergent

          Comments about Gain High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent:

          My experience with this detergent was quite unusual. I traveled to North America a few years ago and found it there. I rented an apartment that had a laundry room as well. So I used several detergents but this one was the best. These days, it was very important to have totally clean clothing because I met some influential people. Leaving a positive impression on them was my first priority, and Gain helped me to achieve the goal. After washing, my clothing was completely clean and fresh with a very pleasant smell. It was a pleasure wearing such clothes, and I felt pretty confident all the time because of that. As an outcome, I had successful meetings there and was totally satisfied after that. Gain is a great detergent that will help your clothes stay in a good condition.

            Ever since we moved and got a newer HE washer, we wanted to try a laundry detergent that would get the stains out of our clothes without costing too much or irritating our skin. When I tried Gain HE laundry detergent on a load of clothes after fidning it on sale, I fell in love.

            The price is great, even when it's not on sale, I can get a bottle for under ten bucks that lasts us a few weeks. The smell is light, and not too strong, but sticks with the clothes even when they are in the dresser or hanging up. I have pretty sensitive skin, and have to be careful about what detergents I use, but I have had no isses with using this Gain detergent.

            Like I mentioned the smell isn't too heavy. It's actually kind of a mixture of fruit and just a good fresh clean smell, which is great when it comes to clothes.

            I do a lot of laundry, probably nine or ten loads a week, and I am always amazed with how much a bottle of Gain lasts us. It doesn't take as much of this liquid detergent to keep clothes looking great, and smelling even better.

            I am so glad that I took a chance and tried Gain HE laundry detergent, it has been a life saver at our house and with our clothes.
