Hi guys, This was actually inspired by another discussion, Do you use fabric conditioner or fabric softener. Normally we do wash then laundry with soap then wash till all the soap is gone and then dried but do you use fab-con before you dry to make it soft and smell great??? How about it mylotters?

I do use fabric softener sometimes, when I remember to buy it, it does make a big difference , I like my washing to smell nice and fresh.

Youre an aussie wow that great that means youve seen kolalas and kangaroos and dingos right do you know that in my country what you call dingo's looks like stray dogs around here. They look so much alike like wolves and siberian huskies.

No, I don't use it. I like my clothes to smell natural, not artificially scented and I don't like the oily residue fabric softener leaves on clothes. The fabric is less absorbent (think towels and cotton clothing) and the chemicals make some people sick. I dry my clothes outside on the clothesline as much as possible, which is nearly all the time, so I don't need anything to stop "static cling." If you use a dryer, you don't need softener for any other reason anyway because a dryer beats clothing into softness. I'm a grouch this evening so forgive me if I come across that way!

Yes I do! I seldom do the drying under the sun so I should use one that fit my sense of smell too. I prefer the 1 rinse fabcon that help me make my washing in less time. I can do MyLotting then *wink!

Hello Deodavid, I use fabric conditioner that goes in the washer. Not the fabric softener that goes in the dryer. I still hang my wash outside on the line when it is sunny and/or the basement when it cold or cloudy etc... I still get that nice warm feeling in the sunshine and smells nice too. The dryer sheets you have to throw away and remember to remove them from the dryer which my daughters seem to forget to do a lot. Thanks Unique16

I think you have an automatic dryer and washer i have a twin tub manual washing machine that you put water in using a pale and i soak the clothes in fabric conditioner befor machine dry and i also air dry ouside so that the UV light form the sun kills any remaining organism in the clothes and the air dires the damp parts of the clothes , thanks deodavid

I tend to use fabric softener because it makes clothes smell great, but mostly it makes clothes easier to iron, in particular cottons and linens. I find that if I do not add softener to certain cottons it is very difficult to get the creases out and they are always rough to the touch, the same applies to towels.
