How to Use Gain Fabric Softener in the Washing Machine

  1. Have you got Gain Liquid Fabric Softener? If yes, head to step 2. If not, add Gain Fabric Softener to your shopping list now.

  2. Check the fabric care labels of your clothes, if they’re machine washable proceed! Add Gain liquidpowder detergent, or Gain Flings laundry detergent pacs into the drum or dispenser. For an extra kick in the smell department add Gain Fireworks scent boosters. Whether you have a High-Efficiency (HE) machine or a standard washing machine, it doesn’t matter! Gain laundry detergents and fabric softeners are good for both.

  3. Next, dose the fabric softener using the cap. For medium loads pour the softener into the cap until it reaches line 1. For HE large loads pour until line 2 and line 3 for HE full capacity loads.

  4. Pour the Gain Fabric Softener into the dispenser, drawer, cavity or agitator (so many options, so little time!). Many people wonder where to put the fabric softener. In all seriousness, your washing machine’s user manual will be able to tell you, but it’s usually the drawer with a flower or star symbol on it. Putting it in the right dispenser is important because this makes sure it’s released at the right time during the wash cycle. The softener works on your clothes during the final rinse AFTER they’ve been washed with laundry detergent.

  5. If you have an older top loader washing machine, you may need to add Gain Fabric Softener manually just ahead of the final rinse.

  6. Dry your clothes as a soon as possible. If you’re using a dryer, throw in a Gain Dryer Sheet for even more softness and Gain scent. Don’t use dryer sheets on clothes that are marked as flame-resistant, on children’s sleepwear, or any other garment labeled as such, since dryer sheets may reduce flame resistance.

And that’s it! That isn’t so hard, is it? Now you know how to use liquid fabric softener, go forth and bury your face in fresh, delightfully-scented, SOFT fabrics!

How to Use Gain Fabric Softener for Hand Washing

Gain Fabric Softener can be used for hand washing too. After you’ve washed the clothes in detergent, rinse them thoroughly. Then add a small amount of fabric softener to the tub filled with fresh water and do a final rinse. Gain Fabric Softener should not be used on flame-resistant clothes or on children’s clothes, as the softener adds a coating that can reduce the fabric’s flame resistance. Fabric softener can also reduce absorption, so alternate washing fabrics, like towels and tea towels, with and without fabric softener. Make sure you do not use fabric softener on garments made from fluffier fabrics, like fleece, velour, chenille and terry cloth. We believe the nose knows best, and with Gain you’ll have soft fabrics in your hands, and an irresistible scent filling your nose and home.
