Do you always use a fabric softener when you do laundry?

Snuggles - Pleasant scent

I hand washed some under clothes and tops the other day, and had a small sample bottle of Snuggles. The smell was pleasant, but it lingered for such a long time. Maybe I used too much. Do you always use a fabric softener or fabric sheets when you wash your clothes. I know sometimes people are alergic to certain smells, does the smell bother you, even though it is pleasant?

I always use fabric softener. We have well water and even tho we have a water softener, our clothes will feel stiff if I don't use any thing. I always use Downy. I never have any problem with the smell. It doesn't bother me.

Do you have to use a water softener when you take a bath with the well water?

The water comes through the water softener before it comes to the house. So, all the water in the house is treated with it. The water outside the house is not.

Yes I always use fabric softeners when I wash. I saw this on a list of useful household tips. It said to buy a large container of liquid fabric softener get a tub sock of a bath cloth (better when wet), pour a little on the sock and put it the dryer with your load of clothes. Your fabric softener will last much longer.

I always use fabric softener when I do laundry. Usually I use sheets not so much to soften my clothes but to prevent static. I hate pulling something out of the dryer and get sparked...LOL. I use Gain sheets and the liquid sometimes. Its fragrance isn't that strong and smells great, it stays for a long time but isn't overpowering.

Yes, I forgot about the static cling, that the sheets take care of. I will try Gain, I do not think I ever used that one before. Thanks for responding, and you have a great day and week end, and happy mylotting.
