Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

This detergent does an impressive job softening fabric and brightening whites and colors. Pods are accompanied by the citrusy and amber scent of Gain that many love. Available in a tub of 81 pods, these don’t leave a soapy residue on clothing.
The pacs are designed to be used in both HE (high-efficiency) and standard washers in any water temperature.
Each pod is concentrated, so they provide twice the cleaning power over other liquid laundry detergents.
Gain Flings Detergent Pacs are suitable for both regular and HE washers and dissolves easily in both hot and cold water.
If you are after fresh-smelling laundry, you will not go wrong with Gain Flings’ Liquid Laundry Detergent Pacs. The fragrance packs a wallop and your clothing will stay scented for quite a while.

Gain flings work in both HE and standard washers. That should cover 99.9% of all household washers.
With the Flings, there’s no measuring, no hauling around heavy bottles, and no messy spills. Honestly, they are pretty much dummy proof.

What reviewers didn't like

May need two pacs to treat stubborn dirt and stains
Surprisingly, Gain had some of the most expensive pods of all the options tested, but they were only the fourth most effective.
