    Default really good smelling laundry

    I have been on the hunt for REALLY good smelling laundry for some years now. I like my laundry to smell like detergent or whatever because I LOVE the smell of them. Clean, fresh.....

    Tell me what you use in your laundry to make them smelling really good! I do like the strong scents! Right now I'm using Tide Free (only because my pregnancy has me itching otherwise I'd be using a good smelly one) and OxiClean because that's my favorite scent! Then I use Sams Club dryer sheets.....I would love to hear what you're using!

    We use all (free) or purex b/c it doesn't make our skin itch! (I DO LOVE TIDE... if only ds wasn't allergic!)... but for some reason we can use whatever fab. softener... so I use lavendar vanilla scented (I put into a spray bottle) & spray 3-5 squirts onto clothes once in dryer & dry for 5-10 min ~enough go get the wrinkles out & then hang them all up to dry... works like a charm!!!

    SUAVITEL !!!

    OMG it is the bomb! The liquid (blue container) is the best, but the dryer sheets (blue package) are pretty good, too.

    The problem is that it is hard to find! Our Walmart can NOT keep it in stock. I can sometimes find the sheets in Family Dollar.

    Just remember it is the original scent in a blue container/packaging (Field Flower aka Fresca Primavera). I think they have a floral one, too. I don't like that one as much.

    These are marketed toward the hispanic market. That might be why they are hard to find. But it is AWESOME!

    I usually like Arm & Hammer detergent, has a nice (but not overpowering) clean smell.

    I like Gain but the scent is too much for my children. I use one the Downy scented fabric softners and use a Downey ball.

    Gain is the strongest scented laundry detergent I've ever used. In fact, it was way too strong for me, but you may like it.

    Ohhh, I'm addicted to good-smelling laundry, too. I blame my mom, LOL! I like snuggle liquid fabric softener, and the smell of regular tide.

    I use TIDE original scent. I use Downey liquid in the washer and Bounce sheets in the dryer. I like all the scents.

    Right now I have Tide detergent because it was given to me, and Gain fabric softener. Love the scent!

    Detergent is one area in which I buy name brand-- I've had problems with cheaper products before.

    I use the liquid Arm & Hammer Essentials. It's not a super strong smell, but it smells clean...kinda like grass or something! LOL!

    Tide just sent me a free sample of their new line, and it was PHENOMENAL! If I wasn't so cheap I would switch to it full time...but for now, I think I will buy it occassionally, when I find a coupon for it.

    DH and I both agreed that it was the best laundry product we had ever smelled! I think it was white lilac????

    I use homemade soap a lot of the time but otherwise I'll use whatever is on sale at the time. I always prefer old fashioned downy for fab. softner but right now am using something. Doesn't smell nearly as good though
