It cleans well, and your clothes smells great after every wash. The problem is that it smells awfully familiar and guess what it smells like, you got it right!!!, cough syrup, you get from a clinic when you are sick. I tell you, before I pour in a cup the liquid detergent into the washing machine, I feel like taking that one cup of detergent in, into my stomach that is. LoL. This is bad.
