Does Any Company Make a Fabric Softener "Pod" for the Washer?
I have decided I am in LOVE with the Tide washer pods. My teen daughter and husband can not screw these things up, they will be perfect for my daughter to take to college and I love them for ME as well! It comes to about a quarter per load and I can live with that!!
But I do like using fabric softener, at least on bath towels evey few loads and am wondering if there are any companies that make a washing machine fabric softener "pod" or "pearl" type product as well? Am I missing something here, or is this just not available here?
So What Happened?™
@Kristina~ The Tide ones have 2 other things...a stain booster and some sort of brightener thingy?? But not a softener. I wish.
Thanks tho. I can add softener, not a big deal, just wondering if someone knew of a product? I goggled and found some sort of "pearls" available in the UK. Not here tho.

Have you tried Unstoppables. Aslo, you may want to contact Procter and Gamble and suggest that they make a fabric softener in a pod. They assume that for every one call they get there are about anogther 100 people with same thought, complaint or whatever it may be but that the other 99 just dont take the time to make the contact. Every P&G product has a phone number and website printed on the product.

how about drier sheets? those are pretty fool proof, easy to dispense and "pre-measured."

I don't know of a pod for that, but you could use the Bounce bar. It attaches to a plastic holder that attaches to the inside of your dryer, and you only change it every few months. I have one and it works great. You can easily detach it if you are drying something (like towels) that shouldn't have fabric softener.
I hope this helps.

Add a little vinegar to your wash and it will soften your clothes naturally.

Well, downey has the "Ball" but you know that softner on towels makes them not able to soak up water well right? I use baking soda on my towels and they soak up just fine and are still soft. But the only thing that I know of is the Downey Ball it has a fill to the max line and you just toss it in with the wash. I thought the pod things had softner in them too - but I have my own ways ... don't we all.
