Review for: Downy Fresh Protect April Fresh with Febreze Odor Defense in-Wash Scent Beads, 20.1 Ounce more...
I do the laundry for my entire household and there is a lot of sweaty, dirt ridden clothing that needs washing. I always trust Downy Fresh Protect Odor Defense to make all that clothing come out smelling fresh and clean! It’s not too feminine smelling, so my dad doesn’t mind the fragrance on his clothes. It just gives it that refreshing clean laundry smell, who doesn’t love that? I sprinkled a bit in the bottom of my washing machine before loading in the clothes, and that’s it! The beads are small, about the size of peas, and you don’t need a lot to reap the benefits of the product. I notice that this product makes the biggest difference with my workout clothes. Without these beads, I feel like my workout gear would never smell fresh. But with the beads, my clothes always smell fresh and new!

Ok I’ve tried many different types of scent boosters and whatnots to add to my laundry to make my laundry smell fresh and clean. This is my last hope and to be completely honest, I’m not sharing it with anyone else in the family, aka my boyfriend or his kid. Call me selfish but I don’t care. They just use go through stuff like it’s grown out back in a garden especially his son who doesn’t even use deodorant. So off brand laundry detergent for them. I love the scent of April Fresh. I haven’t been using it long enough to receive any compliments while I’m out in public to see if it’s noticeable or it actually makes my clothes smell that much more fresher. I have sps and I notice every little scent and odor so I’m extremely picky.

I got a sample of this one day at Sam's Club. I decided to try it in a load of laundry. I fell in love with the idea of scent boosters. I especially loved this one and how strong the scent was after it comes out of the dryer. Unfortunately, the scent didn't last long after that. Still a good product...

I tried a sample of these from Influenster and I really liked them! I love that they’re so easy to use, I’d just throw in some with my clothes and didn’t have to worry about the sticky mess of using detergent and lugging it to the laundry room (I lived in an apartment during college and laundry was communal). It made my clothes feel soft, clean and smell nice just like regular detergent. The only downside is sometimes there’d be a bit of residue from this on my clothes cuz it didn’t melt all the way but it comes off super easy, I just rubbed it off my clothes and was good to go. I recommend this product!

Y'all.... this stuff smells WAY too good. I wash my sheets with it and they smell good for WEEKS! It makes me not want to get out of bed! It keeps all my clothes smelling fresh too I don't even need perfume! (I would literally bath in this stuff if I could)

This scent is wonderful and it really lasts. It's not overpowering and my clothes seem fantastic. I think this is the best scent out of all the scent boosters. The product does not upset my sensitive skin either.

I love the scent boosters. I’m a fanatic about my clothes smelling clean and fresh. I love nothing more than to open my closet or dresser and smell the fresh clean smell of laundry. This holds its scent for days!

I love downy unstoppables, and the april fresh scent compliments my tide detergent that has the same scent. I can't do a load of laundry without my unstoppables. The scent lasts for about a week and smells so nice. I especially love it on my sheets and towels.

These smell amazing, but I do feel like the smell doesn't last as long as it could. My clothes that I have to let air dry will maintain the smell of this for a little bit, but I feel like the scent completely disappears on the clothes that I put in the dryer.
