Basically, it's a wash
The Sunday paper came with a packet of what looked like fruit juice but turned out to be laundry detergent, a new series from Gain called "Joyful Expressions." This variant was called "Apple Mango Tango", and when I slit the side of the envelope and poured it into the washer, I got the distinct impression that I was upending a jar of applesauce on top of my shirts.
If applesauce came in a shiny green tint, that is.
Now I am normally not particularly finicky about detergent my rule has generally been to buy whatever product is priced the lowest that doesn't look like it was packaged in Burma but I have to admit, this is way more fragrance than one gets in, say, Surf Mountain Breeze. (Surf, incidentally, seems to have been subsumed by All of late.) Still, as artificial scents go, this is a good one, and Procter & Gamble might do well to hire out its trompe le nez staff to food processors.Posted at 10:29 AM to General Disinterest
