Looking for a great smelling clothes soap and fabric softener combination. What do you use?

I am using Arm and Hammer fresh scent soap with the Downy that has the pink cap. I can't remember what its called. It smells good together, but other combinations I've tried aren't as nice. What do you use? I like a fresh, not fruity, fragrance.

  • I use Arm & Hammer with the oxi-clean in it and follow up with Downy Clean Breeze. It smells great. I just don't like fruity smells. I don't like going around smelling like a fruit.

  • Detergent- Tide Free Coldwater (saves you $1.00 per load from using your water heater!!!) then follow up with Meyers Clean Day softener in Geranium scent. It makes my house smell good. I've literally had people sniff my towels in the bathroom and ask what kind of softener I use because it smells so good. Lol

  • Gain original. Or Tide, with Downy with the blue cap.

  • Woolite for everything and no softener.

  • I've gone away from using heavily perfumed detergents and softeners, but my favorite scent combination is Tide and Downy both in Mountain Spring scent. I believe it is the green lid for Downy.
