How do I get my laundry to smell AWESOME????

Sometimes I walk by people who's clothes smell absolutely awesome!!! My dad has always been allergic to fragrances so my mom always used fragrance free detergent and since I moved out more than 5 years ago, I still can't figure out what these people are using to make their clothes smell so good! If you are someone who gets compliments on the smell of your clothes, can you please please tell me what you use???

  • Try Gain Joyful Expressions. Use the detergent and the fabric softner in the same scent. Also there is a trick you can use to keep your clothes smelling like they just came out of the dryer. Take some faric softner sheets and place them under your clothes in drawers and maybe drape a couple over a hanger in your closet. It works, it keeps clothes (and your room) smelling awesome!

  • Another vote for GAIN detergent/fabric softener sheets. AWESOME scent and it lasts for weeks even after laundry is folded and in drawers or hung in closets for weeks

  • It's in the fabric softener. I like the new Downy, in the blue bottle. I also like the Gain tropical one.

  • I love the smell of Gain, but the detergent doesn't work as well as Tide, but I like the softener. I just bought some Snuggle sweet almond softener and it is amazing!
