I like this product a lot--but gave it 4 stars only because I really shouldn't have needed to buy it in the first place. I like Downy products and have used them for many, many years. But recently their regular line of fabric softener has changed--for the worse for me. Way too powerful a scent for someone with allergies. So I've had to throw several away--all that I had used previously for years. So decided to get this one and just due without any scent. So far so good.
We got a new puppy and he is extremely allergic to the blue Downy we have bought for years and he threw up every time he got on freshly washed blankets and then he'd scratch like he had fleas. So we tried unscented dryer sheets and another sensitive formula formula softener and in both cases we ended up with a huge static problem. Then I ordered this and voila! It works actually BETTER than the blue Downy on static. The puppy doesn't get sick or itchy, and it is easier on my sinuses as well. Also, it dispenses a lot better from the washer container than the blue Downy and we never see the occasional blue dribbles on the white load any more. The one and only complaint I would have is that the little bottle says it will do 40 loads... not hardly. But using about 2/3 capful works in most loads One bottle I'd say did 20 loads maybe. I'll keep buying it.
I'm noticing all the neg reviews so I have to chime in for Free and Sensitive Fabric Softener. I have sensitive skin and can only use products with no dyes, perfumes, and other scented smelly stuff in it. Same with my Laundry Det too. I have been using the Downy Free for years, doesn't make me itch and makes my clothes soft as well. I order through Amazon as a Subscribe and Save vs finding it at my grocery store who may or may not have it in stock. So I buy this 2x a year and done. Does what it's supposed to do!
