Start Off Each Morning Right with the Amazing Scent of GainÂ®
CINCINNATI, Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Revive your morning routine and discover the joy scent can bring you when you start your day off by getting dressed in clothes that have been washed with Gain. According to a recent study, 44% of Americans agree that they have a particular scent that sets them on the right foot in the morning. (1) Now Gain introduces new Gain with FreshLock with longer-lasting scent to help you achieve this fresh start to your day by offering Gain’s amazing scent experience at the moment you get dressed.
FreshLock is a scent technology upgrade made to all Gain laundry detergent and fabric softener products, which provides longer-lasting freshness for your laundry. Through this upgrade, Gain supplies that straight-from-the-dryer fresh scent that people love, now when they get dressed. Gain with FreshLock contains microscopic scent beads that rest throughout fabrics after they have been washed and dried. The beads break with friction and release the fresh smelling scent of Gain from the fibers.
Gain users who crave the scent of Gain have asked for a longer-lasting scent experience for their laundry and they’re not alone. According to the same study, 75% of Americans agree that they wish their clothes still had their fresh smell when getting dressed. (2) Gain answered this call with FreshLock. Now Gain’s irresistible scent can be unlocked when getting dressed, even weeks after the clothes have been washed.
“We have seen the passion that people have for scent and the joy it can bring,” said Hamilton Brown, P&G Brand Manager for Gain. “With the FreshLock formula we are excited to help extend this joyful scent experience from the laundry routine to that moment of getting dressed each day.”
