It’s always a good idea to use fabric softeners alongside your detergent as they will leave your wash nice and soft. As well as this they’re also great for:

• Reducing static (particularly on synthetic fibre)
• Reducing wrinkles, making ironing that much easier!
• Reducing dry time, saving you energy if you tumble
• Making your wash smell lovely – and there are lots of different fragrances to choose from

Remember, if you have unpleasant smells in the vicinity, be they from pets, grease or smoking, fabric fresheners such as Febreze will also prove a godsend.

Note – don’t pour fabric softener directly onto your clothing, it can contain colouring agents which may stain! Always put it in the designated compartment in your washing machine’s drawer.
