Guide Review - Gain Joyful Expressions Laundry Detergent

It takes a lot to amaze or interest my husband when it comes to cleaning products. To him, the visual result at the end of a chore is really the only thing that matters. You can imagine my surprise when he asked me what the new laundry detergent was called after I used a small sample of Gain Joyful Expressions Apple Mango Tango in a load of button-up shirts.

He noticed the scent and loved it. He still loved it a week later when he pulled a shirt out of the closet and still smelled a hint of the detergent clinging to his shirt. He noticed it enough to point out the bottle of Gain at the grocery store and ask if I was going to buy any.

He's not alone, either. I enjoyed the scent and found that even without added fabric softener or dryer sheets, the scent of Gain Joyful Expressions was retained by the clothing. In fact, it left the entire linen closet smelling like a fresh clean fruit salad.

This is a nice fragerant product that lasts for days and longer after a wash however, no where on the bottle does it say detergent so someone could use it as a fabric softener in a container and not realize it until in was too late. It was a rather blatant & irresponsible oversight. The only hint that it might not be detergent is a reference to finding the same type of scent in the softner.
