I wish I had started using these earlier
I bought these the other day because I had a coupon for them, and I've never tried them before. I am very impressed! The load of towels I did smell amazing! Not too strong of a scent which is nice, I didn't want them to be overpowering... I compared my towels I washed with and without the product and I can't believe how much cleaner and new these towels smell.

Yes, I recommend this product!

The freshest laundry you have ever sniffed !
I was happy to give the Downy Fresh Protect with Febreze odor defense, and compare it to my current brand. I put this product through the test by using it with heavy duty loads as well as my most delicates. It out-performed my current brand hands down. Firstly I must say the April Fresh scent I used is very pleasant and not overwhelming at all. The product is super easy to use and it really makes a difference in the final outcome of my laundry. It held up really well in loads of towels I did and even after using them they still smelled great! I used them in warm and cold water as well as hot and they performed equally in all three temperatures. The only complaint I have if I had to have one is that the cap doesn't attach back to the top properly after the product has been opened so it could get lost in the shuffle. Other than that I give this product a complete buy. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
