I purchased this laundry soap because I wanted to switch to a natural cleaner and love the scent of sweet orange! It does seem to get things clean, although I did have a stain on something that I did not pre-treat and it was still faintly visible after washing with this soap. I love the scent when I'm pouring it into the machine but unfortunately, nothing smells like sweet orange when it's all dried. I wish it did but it's not a deal breaker! I have an HE front loader and only use 1TBPS per load. I like that it doesn't require much to get the job done.
