I was forever and ever amen a faithful Tide detergent user until about 1 year ago.
I mean that is probably the only detergent I'd used since marriage. (19 yrs.) About
a year ago, I made the switch to Gain. My sweet man requested that I make
a detergent change because he was noticing a "body chemistry" reaction
to what he thought was the detergent. In plain words, his clothes didn't
smell very pleasant when he would sweat. Ok.. there.. its out there, sorry honey.
The good news is, changing detergents worked! No more stinky clothes.. yay!
Anyway.. I am getting to my real point here. I have been using Gain for about
a year, and it really does clean our clothes well. I have no issues with Gain.
I am still a faithful user of Downy fabric softener as well... I like the pink cap. :O)
I have been noticing for quite some time, that there is absolutely NO fresh
smell to our clothes anymore. They are very soft, and static free, which
is great, but I miss that fresh downy smell on my clothing.
I was talking to a friend, and she says when possible she line dries
to retain the fresh fabric softener scent on her clothes. I could line dry,
and do line dry (some things in the summer) but I'm not about to hang our
panties out on the line for all to see. Ain't Happen'!
As it is right now, my clothes just smell "hot" when they come out of the dryer.
Weird I know, but I don't know how else to explain it. I'm using the same machines,
with the same settings. Could the temp be to high??
I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.
So I guess my question is..... if you use a fabric softener, are you able
to smell it on your clothing after it comes out of the dryer? Do you have
any suggestions for me?
Desperately in need for that fresh Downy smell in my life again. :O)
