Wandering around Walmart last week, I finally remembered to pick up the new Gain Dishwashing Liquid in lavender. When I found it, I was thrilled that it was only $0.97. At that price, just about everyone can go and try it even if you didn't win my giveaway. So, now that I found it, bought it, and tried it, here's what I think:
Since I didn't really love the smell of the "original" Gain Dishwashing Liquid, I wasn't overly optimistic about the lavender scent either. In fact, when I got home and opened the bottle to give it a sniff, I braced myself for disappointment. To be fair, I am VERY scent sensitive. I only like certain smells, and even smells I like can be too strong and offensive to me. After the first sniff, I wasn't sold. It smelled fine, but not great. I certainly didn't develop an immediate urge to wash any dishes. Later that night, like it or not, I had to do the dishes. (I can't stand having dishes sit in a sink overnight.) I turned the water to hot, let it run, and squeezed a bit of the lavender Gain into the flowing water. I was very happy with the quantity and quality of the bubbles that filled my sink. Additionally, I was also pleased with the smell. It was fresh, relaxing, and quite enjoyable. The scent wasn't at all overpowering, but it was definitely strong enough to appreciate. I don't know what it was about adding it to the water that made it smell better, but it definitely is a more pleasant smell than I got from sniffing the liquid in the bottle alone.
After a week, I still enjoy the smell of Gain's New Dishwashing Liquid in lavender. In fact, I enjoy it enough that it has been added to my approved list of dish soaps, which is not an easy feat. Priced well, with bountiful bubbles, and a pleasant aroma, I definitely recommend that you try Gain's New Dishwashing Liquid. While I like the Lavender, you might just like it in the Original, Apple Mango Tango, or Citrus Splash.
Now Shirley, who likes me on facebook, has the opportunity to try it for herself. She can even try it while wearing her new purple Gain shirt. Enjoy!
