    Tide tablets. Not because of scent, but because they are practical. Dryer sheets... Bounce. I prefer laudry not smelling at all, I think I am somewhat allergic to some stuff, few weeks ago I bought some detergent in sale and ended up scratching myself until I was literally bleeding.

    My family buys the brand that's on sale at Rite Aid. So right now we're using Tide. Frabic softener is Bounce.

    We use some cheap-ass brand (Xtra, mountain fresh scent) that's $4.99 for a 75-gallon vat. It works just fine, smells lovely and lasts about a year and a half per bottle.

    I like the tablets better as well, when you do alot of laundry, its easier to carry a couple of tablets in your pocket to the laundry room in my building vs. carrying a big box.

    I recently heard from my mom that she read a report somewhere that fabric softner sheets contain fiberglass, thats how it adheres to your clothing. I know that some sheets cause me to itch after I use them on my clothing.

    Urban legend? Help me out with this one folks.

    Hmmm....that's one I haven't heard before. I would hope that it's only an urban legend. Now where did I put that box of fabric softener?....

    I use Arm & Hammer because it's $2.98 a gallon at WalMart and one of the few laundry detergants that work well in our water. We have a well and it's really got a lot of iron in it. For fabric softner I use Downey liquid with the little dispenser ball so I don't have to go back to put in the fabric softner. I also use bleach on the sheets and pillowcases because it reminds me of staying at my Grandma's house. Hers always smelled of bleach.

    Another tide-user, here! I use Snuggles for the fabric softener.

    Good to see you posting again, Feif!

    I use Irish Springs. Makes my clothes smell Spring Fresh! And if I use the Aloe brand in the summer it takes care of any itching sensations (err from sunburn).

    (actually, I'm a typical male, I use whatever's on sale at the grocery store. I do use Downy though!)

    Currently, I use Planet for my regular loads and Ecover for delicates. They're hypo-allergenic and earth-friendly (biodegradable and phosphate-free). These brands may not be the cheapest, but my washing machine is one of those energy-saving ones (it's a tax write-off to buy an environmentally sound washer!), so only a teensy bit of soap is necessary for it to work properly.
