  • I love the purple Tide Simple Pleasures detergent and fabric softner. I'll use the liquid softner because I find it give's the clothes a stronger smell and I'll often throw one of the same scented detergent fabric softner sheets. Love it!

  • Gain smells the best!! And whatever liquid fabric softner smells good this week. I switch it up, but have found I like Downy (all kinds) the best! Hooray for the Downy Ball! I'd never use liquid without it!

  • We do budget friendly.

    If I had my druthers it would be Gain. The smell is nice but it cleans well even taking cigarette smoke out in just one wash(had a friend send me clothes that reeked of it LOL).

    As for fabric softner we dont use any. Used dryer sheets(Bounce) but havent lately.

  • The Gain with the pink top. It's apple and something else (I'm pretty sure it's a "J" something else if that helps:)

  • The Purple Tide and then Downey and sented drier sheets Bounce has a scent rating on their box... My BIL uses the Purple Tide and it makes our WHOLE house smell! I personally use the All Free and Clear and then Downy fabric softner and Downy Drier sheets.
