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.

    I love Gain. Even the original scent Gain smells great. I have tried some of the scented Gain detergents and I like them too. I just always stick to the Original Gain. You can't go wrong with it. Gain gets my famalies clothes clean and smelling really fresh.

        Gain original smells really nice. I prefer to use this with hot or warm water, it seems to work best that way. I also use this on bathroom towels because it makes the bathroom and linen closet smell nice. However Gain doesn't really get tough smells out that's why I gave it 4 stars. It cleans and smells nice, especially when used with gain dryer sheets.
