Gain With Freshlock Review and Giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to Wander!*

We have loads of stinky clothes.  How about you?

There's just something about performance and sports wear that just holds the stink.  Maybe it's the polyester.  I mean, it really holds the stink.  I've mentioned that before.

Gain laundry detergent has been fabulous in the past to get rid of the stink in our workout wear.  Stick your nose in it and smell the no stinkness kind of fabulous.  Just smell the fabulousness, I dare you.  Gain has a slight clean smell that isn't too overpowering.

And now Gain has a new formula with Freshlock.  It's a scent technology that provides longer lasting freshness and offers a renewed scent even weeks after washing.  There are scent beads that reside in the garment after washing and drying and they release renewed freshness after coming in contact with friction.  Wow!

Now I can't verify the weeks after washing thing because, honestly, I don't have that many clothes.  My clothes get a regular work out in the wearing and working-out department.  I'm just happy that the stinkiness is eliminated with Gain.  I have noticed that as I'm putting away my clean clothes I get this tiny fresh scent.  It makes you want to rub your nose all over the clothes basket.  Great smelling and not overpowering!  When you put the clothes on you're welcomed (and awakened) with a clean smell.  Even when I'm wearing the clothes after washing I get moments of a fresh smelling scent.  And while the Freshlock can't totally overpower the stink that comes with a sweaty work-out, I have noticed that fresh Gain smell when I move at times.  And Biker Boy has lately preferred that I wash our work-out wear in Gain.  He's pleased that it gets rids of the stinkiness.  And if my man is happy, I'm happy!

As usual, while I love the scent, I'm not head over heels in love with the color of the liquid detergent.  Or the fact that there isn't a full list of ingredients on the bottle.  But that's just me and that's how I roll.  And I love rolling with a slight fresh scent.  And now rolling will actually activate that scent.  How cool!

Now one lucky reader will be able to score a bottle of Gain Detergent and Softener with Freshlock.  Thank you Gain for sponsoring such a wonderful and useful giveaway!
