Gain Dishwashing Soap and T-Shirt Giveaway

by Stephanie Suesan Smith on November 5, 2010

GainSwirlBottleThe part of putting up the bounty of my garden I most hate is the clean up afterwords.  It seems that every dish and pot I own is dirty, along with an incredible amount of the kitchen.  Maybe you are not as messy as I am, but everyone has dishes to clean.  Gain recently released Gain® Dishwashing Liquid.  P&G, Gain’s parent company, sent me a bottle of original scent dish washing liquid, three large t-shirts, and three $5 Wal Mart gift cards through so I could try the dish washing liquid and host a giveaway.

I Love Gain t shirtsI will tell you how two readers can win a t-shirt and $5 Wal Mart gift card to try Gain Dish Washing Liquid themselves after my review.  First, what scents do they have?  The original is lemony to me, while the three other scents are lavender, citrus splash, and apple mango tango.  I purchased lavender at Wal Mart, but was not able to find the other two scents a month ago when I looked.

I am bad about putting dirty dishes in the sink without washing them out first, then leaving them until I run out of dishes to use before washing them.  That means caked on and dried food.  Ugh.  Gain was able to soak the dried food off of the dishes with a minimum of scrubbing, so met my number one criteria for a dishwashing liquid.

My number two criteria is whether the smell of the soap makes me sick.  I am allergic to a lot of fragrances and so that is pretty important.  I found the smell of both the original and lavender scented products to be pleasant.  It did not make me sick nor was it too strong.  The sink area smelled pleasent but the whole kitchen didn’t smell of fragrance.

Overall, I liked this soap.  The only quibble I have is that the lavender scent has a slight artificial quality.  However, I tend to be picky about such things.

To buy:

Gain Dishwashing Soap, try any grocery store or Wal Mart.  It is with the other dishwashing liquids.

To win:

Gain dishwashing liquid and Wal Mart gift carda large size  “I Love Gain” t-shirt such as that in the picture above, and a $5 Wal Mart card to purchase your own bottles of Gain Dishwashing liquid, leave a comment with your email address below.  No email address, no way to reach you if you win, so don’t forget it.

The fine print:

U.S. only, entries end 11:59 pm CST Friday, November 12th, 2010, two winners picked using on or about November 13th, 2010.  Winners have 48 hours to respond with a mailing address or another winner will be chosen.  Not responsible for lost or mutilated entries or prizes.

FTC Stuff:

I received three t-shirts, one bottle of dish washing liquid, and three $5 Wal Mart gift cards from MyBlogSpark and P&G so that I could review the product and conduct this giveaway.   My opinions are my own.

Was on the Gain site looking for the t shirt for my niece, She is in LOVE with GAIN She using the clothes soap, fabric softner ( so do I and her mom) and also the dish soap. She was so excited when she went to walmart and found the gain febreeze that she text me to tell. She said if i could only found a candle that smells like GAIN i would be in heaven. So thought I would find a shirt for her for Christmas to put in with all the Gain products that I have got her. Silly present to some but to her she will love it. Thank You Linda

Love all Gain products. You make my life smell great in many aspects. Love original and lavendar scents. The new dishwashing liquid actually makes my dishes shine. Happy Happy. Now I just need a body wash that smell soooo good for soooo long.
