Gain original is my favorite scented fabric softener. It works great with my old washing machine. This leaves mine and my husband’s clothing soft and smelling great! He works in a factory, so scent is important!I absolutely love the scent of All of Gain's products. I do buy Gain's fabric softener just for the scent. The scent will last for at least a week on your clothes after it's been washed. It preforms well as far as making your towels really soft. But the biggest plus for me about Gain's Fabric Softener Original Scent is the smell of it and the smell stays on the fabrics you use it on for a extended amount of time.
