Downy vs. Gain fabric softener efficacy
Has anyone noticed any appreciable differences between current formulations of Downy and Gain?
I use Downy Free & Clear, and Gain Original Scent. In some contexts, I require softening with no aroma, and in others, I very much enjoy Gain O.S. It could very well be my imagination, but is it possible that I notice Downy Free & Clear seems to be either more concentrated or just plain more effective? Please take my initial observations as quite possibly erroneous, as my sample size is low and my post here is oriented more towards others' comparative anecdotes.
Thank you for any on-topic wisdom you can share. I'm sympathetic to opinions that fabric softeners encourage immorality in algal blooms on Neptune but would greatly appreciate if such discussions take place elsewhere, lest this thread derail like so many others.
