What kind of smell do you like for a fabric freshner?Do you use the same fabric sheet more than once or just for a single use time?I recently switched to the liquid because i found the powder did not dissolve enough and ended up leaving smudge spots on the clothing.:)

Cold Water Tide - I love this laundry soap!
I too found that laundry powder leaves smudges on clothes so I have been a very faithful Cold Water Tide user for 3 years now! I also like that it is specifically for cold water so we're not wasting extra energy to heat up the water, keeps the gas bill a lot lower too! As for dryer sheets, I only use them once.

Hi!I just switched last week to the liquid one.There was abig special at the store and bought like 6 jugs,i thought i would wash my boyfriends greasy work clothes with it and i love it now!I dont know why i never tried it before.I will never change back to the powder again.I will try the tide on you mentioned because it washes in cold water which we like to save energy.:):)

I absolutely love Cold Water Tide! It is all I use and have used for a few years now. Plus it is always great to save energy and save a little cash if you can too!

I use liquid because of the clumping withthe powder also I think the liquid smells better, I also use the sheets for fabric softner in the washer instead of liquid. I love a fresh clean scent but i try to use lavander if I can find it.

Ah ya?So when its done washing,you just throw a fabric sheet in the washmachine like that?Never thought of that!Lavender smells good.I dont like the ones that smell vanilla,too much odour.:)

no I dont throw it in like that .in the middle of my aggitator is where I would pour my fabric softner, instead stick a fabric softner sheet in there when the load is done I just throw it in the dryer fabric sheet and all.

I use the Powder as I still believe that they are better then the Liquid and also I find that the Liquid is far to expensive and does not last as long as the Powder at all

Exactly right!The liquid does cost more and the powder lasts longer meaning more loads can be washed.I sneeze every time i use the powder one.LOL:)

I use the powder as I find it cleans better I use less and saves me money. If I put the right amount of clothes it melts (or dessolces) great so it was a case of trial and error so now i know how much to put. I use fabric soft as I find my clothes smell great and are much softer. I like green apple and jasmin in fact I like all but lavender (I am sick and tired of that smell as my mum used to buy everything lavender)

Lavender,i dislike the aroma of it.It hits my nose too hard.Just like anything that smells like vanilla.Wowie!!I cant stand that one.Its like dousing yourself in the vanilla liquid for cooking cakes and that.:)

I use liquid laundry soap. Tide or Cheer are the only ones that I can use because my son is alergic to many others. I also use Downey instead of fabric sheets. I love the way my clothes smell and how soft they are after washing them.

I've always used the liquid tide with freebreeze it makes my cloths smell great and I don't have to use alot either to get them clean.. The powder stuff I used once and actually threw the rest of it away.. It didn't do anything to my cloths beside make a big mess...

I prefer to use the laundry powder; I don't know why. I guess I'm old fashioned, even though I'm only 18 :). I don't really use fabric freshener, which I know is probably not the best thing, but oh well lol.
