    Feb 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, fresh smell, gets everyday clothes clean
    Cons: Not for tough stains

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gain HE detergent provides a good value for the price, and cleans well.
    Cons: The scent is too heavy, almost irritating, and lingers too long.

    Summary: I normally use Tide HE powder, but the store was out. With dirty laundry beckoning, I tried Gain HE powder. From a cleaning standpoint, it worked great.  It is also cheaper than Tide.  I really wanted this to work. Sadly, I ... read more
