When I lived in Spain and Costa Rica, I used Ariel for laundry. I don’t know why P&G doesn’t sell Ariel here in the U.S., but it’s a superior product. Clothes smell fresh, and are much softer. I found a bottle yesterday at Big Lots (which… is quickly becoming my favorite store). Come on P&G, get on the stick and start selling Ariel in the U.S.! O.K., I’m off my soap box.
