  • I use white vinegar in the rinse cycle as my fabric softener and I have a couple of tennis balls in my dryer.

  • neither, I don't want the chemicals, plus it saves money. I have a tennis ball in the dryer and I sometimes use vinegar as a natural fabric softener during the rinse cycle.

  • I use vinegar in the wash. It's cheaper than softener and does the same thing. Also, it keeps the washer and hoses from getting musky.
    We have a front load and the chemicals in fabric softener stick to the drum and causes you to need to use the special cleaner once a month.

    I only use the softener sheets in the winter when static is more prominent.

  • ~*Dryer Sheets*~ Luv Snuggle dryer sheets, the smell last much longer in the laundry than Bounce ever did! And I use 2 sheets... plus they smell much better

  • I just use dryer sheets. I would never be able to remember to put in the liquid softener!

  • Call me crazy but I use fabric softer and dryer sheets just bc of the static the more the better of softness.
