We’ve all seen the ads with the cute kid obsessing over how comfortable his bed is, well apparently we shouldn't be holding fabric softeners so high.
Rich Handel has gone viral after sharing the 5 things he wouldn't do as a ‘laundry expert’, one of which is using fabric softeners.
"Never use fabric softener. It's a waste of money."
People in the comments were definitely on board with this:
“Stopped using fabric softener after I saw a repair guy on here show what it does to the machine. And I see no difference between using vs not”
“Well, I been telling this stuff for a while. Glad someone has my back lol”
But many people also took to the comments to say they didn't even use fabric softener to make their clothes soft, it was for the scent.
“Fabric softener makes my clothes smell Devine that’s why I use it”
“I use fabric softener for the scent”
Amelia from The Laundry Edit also agreed that we shouldn't be using fabric softener in our laundry, but she did have some advice about the type of wash cycle that might help with the 'scent'...
So maybe on your next load, don't reach for the softener bottle too quickly.
