Do you ever sit on the edge of your seat waiting for the dryer to finish drying your clothes so you can toss them onto your bed and jump into their warm, soft, delicately scented threads? Have you ever jumped into that pile of wonderful warmth only to be greeted by a not so heavenly stench? Your sensory centers become overloaded and you stomp to the washer to clean them all over again only to be greeted by the same thing.
Over and over you go round and round, you try everything: vinegar, fabric softeners, different detergents and when you’re at your wits end, dare I say bleach? EEK! I have been known to put a little bleach in my loads of colors…yeah not a good thing don’t do that. I may, just may be overly paranoid about the scent of my clothes, I am also paranoid about the way my house smells and I have been told it smells like perfume so who’s to say? Regardless I need to know for myself that my clothes, my house, whatever smells nice. I am always a little leery of trying new products meaning I almost never try any new varieties of anything.
I have a handful of YouTubers that I watch regularly, one of them being Samantha Schuerman she has pretty good taste and I trust her suggestions. During one of her videos (I don’t remember which one) she was going about her day doing this and that, when she told us about Downy Unstopables. I was intrigued when she said they made her clothes smell “delightful” (I think that’s what she said). I sent hubby to the store that very night to pick some up, the pink ones. Oh. My. Word. Yes they are “delightful”. I got to bounce into a warm wonderfully scented pile of warm yumminess! The pink one, Shimmer is the best which Downy describes as “floral and fruity” I think this is fairly accurate with the addition of “amazing wonderfulness”. The Unstopables are not a fabric softener, but a scent booster that comes in the form of little beads.
The Unstopables come in difeerent scents that I am aware of.
When you go to the store you can’t pop open the top, how will you get to smell it before you buy it? Aha, just squeeze the bottle and the scent will fill your nostrils with an odorific o’ joy, so please, please, please, please do not tear open the safety seal and then just the leave the container on the shelf I beg of you!
Once you decide how you like it, some of the wholesale clubs carry bulk bottles in limited scents for a small savings. I now enjoy the knowledge that I will have gorgeous essence lilting from my regalia. Your olfactories will be overwhelmed, though with goodness not to be ashamed of or repulsion.
