    Default fabric softener sheets

    Sorry, i didnt have the patience to look through all the searches that came up... heres my problem:

    I'm allergic to the scent of fabric softener sheets... i need them to reduce static in my hubbys clothes... anyone know where i can buy unscented ones, or even more natural ones? This is for a girl who cant even walk down the laundry detergent aisle without getting sick... I appreciate your help, in advance!!

    Or what about liquid softner to put in theplastic balls in your washer. they work well too.
    When I run out of liquid softner I usr hair conditioner. If your not alergic to anything in your laundryt detergent area, I would use that sometimes too.

    i read that you can get a quirt bottle of vinegar and water and just put a few squirts on the laundry when you load it into the dryer. never tried it, but its cheap enough to try.

    Downy now has a Sensitive and Free liquid softener that I use. I have skin issues so this has been great for me!

    I have a family with various scent and skin sensitivities here. If the bounce brand does not work for you, All makes a "free and clear" version as well. No dies or perfumes. Where I'm at, it's also cheaper than the bounce. They also make a detergent that is great, if you don't make your own.

    I like just using vinegar. I still sometimes get static with man-made fibres, but the rest is pretty good.

    thanks again ladies-- so far the bounce is working out well-- i never usually have problems with actual detergents, i just cant handle the scent of the dryer sheets anymore! I don't make my own detergent, but im starting to think maybe i should!

    Sometimes putting baking soda in the rinse water helps get rid of the excess detergent, which is what causes clothes to be stiff.
