I dry most of my clothes in the dryer, but there are some things that I hand wash and use liquid fabric softener. I have been using the Purex Soft Fabric Softener made by Dial and available at the Dollar Tree for only a dollar. The Mountain Breeze Scent is a nice scent and there is a scent left on the clothes. It comes in a 30 ounce plastic bottle and will last me for a while. I usually use two capfuls for each load. Sometimes when I have time I hang some items outside on the line to dry. I would not use this fabric softener on a large load of clothing because to me there would not be enough of a scent left on the clothes and they would not be soft enough. Now, for just the items that I hand wash or use the machine to hand wash it works just fine and for only a dollar that is a really good deal. I think that this is a really good buy and I would recommend this fabric softener for small loads that will not be going in the dryer.
