Powder Laundry Detergent | Gain

Before I purchased my front load washer that requires HE laundry soap I bought a box of Gain to use for my laundry. I noticed that after about 5 washings of my uniform for work it began to fade. My uniform was a dark color and I never had issues before with the other brand of detergent I was using. I tried turning my clothes inside out and using less detergent. However, it was a lot of work and using half the amount left dirt and grime on my clothes. I also didn't care for the strong smell of Gain. I live in the South and during the Summer it is hot. My clothes would emit the Gain smell all day and it was annoying. I am not a fan of strong fragrances and by the end of the day I was nauseated by the smell. I guess if you are sweating the Gain smell is a plus but if you don't like fragrance then it is a definite negative. I do not recommend Gain for dark color clothing because with my experience, my darks faded while using Gain Powder Laundry Detergent.

Overall Gain powder laundry detergent earns top ratings in my book. I love the way Gain gets my clothes clean and leaves them smelling so good. You even get the sent days after doing the laundry. I will confess you will need to use a stain presoak if you have a stubborn stain like grease. I use Dawn dish liquid for those grease stains or shout for the others. Gain powder detergent can not be beat otherwise.

Performance
I think you will be well pleased with the performance as long as you use a stain remover for stubborn dried on stains. I would recommend shout or for grease some dawn dish liquid. I also use Clorox bleach to help whiten my whites. I think this is standard practice regardless of which brand of detergent you use.

Scent
I love the scent that you get with Gain original. I also recommend trying the other scents that are available. You may find that one of the others is more to your liking. I personally like them all. You will also find the scent will stay long after laundry day. I have pulled out shirts a week later and they still had that great scent on them.

    I have used Gain products on and off for years, but I've only tried out the Gain Powder Laundry Detergent recently. I've really enjoyed a lot of Gain products, and other powder laundry detergents, but I found that I really didn't like this one.

    I found that whenever I would wash my clothes with this powder detergent, it didn't dissolve well, and it would leave plenty of powder behind. I also found that this powder laundry detergent was too harsh for my clothes, and caused them to fade much faster then they should have. It also made some of my t-shirts feel rough to the touch. It probably did this to my clothes, because I had to wash them more then once just to get the powder out. I also think that this detergent doesn't dissolve well because I like to use cold water instead of warm or hot. I feel like if you were to wash your clothes in hot water, this would probably dissolve and work better.

    I honestly would say that this doesn't clean very well, and it tends to ruin and fade clothes quickly. It also bothered my allergies and asthma as well. The scent is this detergent was too strong, and gave me a headache. I couldn't stand to smell it all day because it was very irritating. I find that powder detergents tend to have a stronger longer lasting scent then regular ones do.

    Overall, I would not recommend this detergent because it caused me to have to do more work to my laundry, it completely faded my clothes, and it is not a great detergent for sensitive people. I will not be buying this again.

    Performance
    I found that whenever I would use this to wash my clothes it would leave powder behind, no matter how many times I would wash my clothes. It is very hard to dissolve and grainy. I also found that not only did it not wash my clothes, it faded them very quick, and it made my clothes smell way too strong to be comfortable wearing them all day. It made my clothes rough and uncomfortable.

    Scent
    The scent was way too strong and overbearing. It gave me a headache just smelling it, and I found that even throughout the day it did not fade at all. If you like overly scented products them you would probably like this, but if you have allergies or asthma I would recommend to stay away from this at all costs.
