Dropps Fabric Softener Pacs

I've been doing my own laundry since high school and a family worth of laundry for several years now. In my experience, adding fabric softener to the wash provides me with the softest clothes, as well as giving the laundry a nice fresh, scent. Using dryer sheets is great for combating static and imparting a nice, fresh scent on the clothes.

For me, the biggest challenge with liquid fabric softener, since I am usually multi-tasking or starting a load of laundry before I head out for my morning walk/run, is catching the rinse. I have tried devices that are meant to release your fabric softener in the spin cycle - really a clever device taking advantage of centrifugal force if you ask the engineer in me. They work really well and allowed me to use fabric softener in my wash, but I felt like I needed to replace them too frequently because there would become a build up inside. I am not sure if it was fabric softener that wasn't released or lint or a bit of both, but it got sort of ookey after a while.

A while back, I was offered the opportunity to try the new Dropps fabric softener pacs. They have a great fresh scent - the bag that I tried is Orange Blossom. The product is useable in all washers, including high efficiency style and all temperatures.

They are so convenient and easy to use. Similar to the Dropps detergent pacs, you simply toss them in at the start of the load. No need to catch the rinse cycle. I have been pleased with the experience. I feel that my clothes have been softer than they were when I was not using any fabric softener and the fresh scent stays with the clothes. As with any of the pacs, you need to make sure that you store them tightly sealed.

You can learn more about Dropps on their webpage ( and join Dropps on Facebook.

No compensation was received for this post. A sample pouch of Dropps Fabric Softener Pacs was provided for my use. All opinions expressed are my own or that of my family.
