Comment:
I love Gain products and decided to try this product because I had a $1 off coupon. The flings smell good and are easy to use, but I was quite disappointed with its performance. The first time I used Gain flings, I used one fling for a small load (as directed). It never made any lather. It turned the water a milky color, but produced no suds. I had to rewash my clothes with my regular detergent in order to get them clean. I tried the product a second time, this time using two flings, only to have the same results. Guess I won't be using these again.
