So you know of my love for 'smell goods'; well that isn't just limited to candles and anti bacterial hand gel. From the title you can see we're talking laundry, yeah laundry.
I throw a cap full of these lil pellets(?) in with my detergent and let them work their magic. Downy's site has five scents -'Fresh', 'Lush', 'Shimmer', 'Spring' and 'Glow'- listed but I've only seen 'Fresh' and 'Lush' (pictured above) in Super Centre for $20.99. A bottles lasts me for approximately two and a half months.
When I first saw these at the supermarket I thought, lazy man's fabric softener. Seriously, who has the time to always run back to the washing machine at rinse cycle? I know the modern models have the dispenser that allows you to put in the fabric softener at the beginning; but that ain't wha I working wid. #FirstWorldProblems
According to Downy's website: "You love the softness of Downy. Add the feisty freshness of Downy UNSTOPABLES, an in wash scent booster that goes beyond everyday freshness to keep active wear, towels, and other fabrics smelling “wow” right up until the next wash. So every day, you can indulge in the freshness you crave. Just pick a scent below. Then see how to use UNSTOPABLES—and what makes it so fresh, easy, and fun".
So it doesn't replace fabric softener but rather prolongs the lovely scent on your clothes.
I love 'em...cause now if I fall asleep mid washing I don't have to re-rinse muh clothes. I still use fabric softener though...especially with things I hand wash :D
