I have been using this fabric softener for years already. It took me awhile to work my way through others until I found one that I liked and I knew that this was a product that was going to do its job effectively. I am in love with the smell of these sheets. I cannot even explain it all I know is that it smells amazing! I have not even tried any of the other scents because I love this one so much that I cannot bear to NOT smell it on my clothes! A little over dramatic I know, but to me you cannot smell like clothes, blankets etc. are clean until you can smell an amazing fabric softener on them and this one is definitely that product that does it for me. I will admit that it can be quite pricey especially if bought at a grocery store or somewhere that doesn't specialize in these types of products but it is worth it for me. In a large load of laundry I put about 5 sheets max and in a small/ medium load 3/4 depending if its small items or towels. And yes it does work. It does get my clothes soft.
