Do you prefer liquid fabric softener or dryer sheets?

I use both. My favorite is Gain. My reasoning for using both is that the liquid soaks into the clothing and softens them. The dryer sheet will reduce the static cling.

Fabric Softener - picture of Snuggle fabric softener
I used to use both a softener and the dryer sheet when I was in the States. Now that I'm retired I don't pay attention to whether my slacks, t-shirts, or sweaters are soft or not. Too old to worry about things like that...busy worrying about things even less important.

I am sure that one day I will have to choose between the 2. Money is tight right now so I am sure that eventually I will need to cut out one.

dryers -  new, old dryers
Ladies Did you know that using those fabric softeners and dryer sheet can plug up the lint trap on your dryer over time. Some sent me an email about this and how it could damage your dryer. I didn’t know whether to believe or not but when I took the trap to the sure enough it held water. A little dish soap and a brush cleaned it right up

I like to use both as well. But if I could only afford one. I buy the liquid kind. Some thinsg just feel better softer.

neither, they weaken the fabric and cloths do not last as long.

I use both also. Basically the same reason. I also like having the extra scent.

I love Gain. I use the detergent, liquid and the dryer sheets. My neighbors always comment house nice the smells from my house are when I am doing laundry. You can smell it drying down the block. I use a dryer sheet in the closets to keep them smelling fresh too.
