We are with I TRIED IT… Downy Nature Blends Liquid Fabric Conditioner & Softener!
For this review, we we only focusing on their Honey and Lavender option, it just smelled so wonderful! The other option available is a Rosewater and Aloe scent.
I started using this product about 5 to 6 months ago and I have restocked on this item twice.
The reason I decided to try it because it was on sale on Amazon for PRIME members in their lightning deals.
I bought two of these bottles for less than $10. As pictured below:
WHY CONSIDER IT?
A little about myself is that I am a sucker for companies claiming to be eco based. With that said, I appreciated the label being quite honest that it is only 70% bio-based.
Secondly, it claims to be “gentle on on sensitive skin.” My skin does get slightly irritated by certain detergents and softeners but, over the years, I have learned what works and what does not work. If you see that your skin is irritated, I highly suggest finding a different brand. Your skin will thank you for it!!
Lastly, it claims to be a softner AND conditioner… here is where my true skepticism came in…. conditioner for clothing? … sounds nice but… is it necessary and does it make it a difference?
I HAD TO FIND OUT!!!
First of all, let’s just start with the conditioner claim!
It definitely leaves clothes feeling a little different right out of the washer. Once dry, the clothes do feel a bit softer and they smell really nice.
Another positive aspect of this product is that it remains smelling really nice for at least 2 weeks. Normally, the smell of the softner does not last in our closets for whatever reason. I hate that! Especially when it comes to my bedsheets!
Here is my theory about the conditioner. I feel that it may make clothing a bit softer than other products, but I think conditioner means it will leave the clothing smelling fresh and feeling soft longer while it awaits to be used again.
It also did not irritate my skin! I have decided to use it on everything now, including my delicates!
Lastly, you do not need a lot of this product to get the results I just discussed. This also means you save MONEY!!! If you do not have to use much, you will have the same bottle for longer!
If you are a person who hates strong scents, this may not be for you. If you like either scents, there may be hope for you!
I would also just stress the importance of not using too much. I realized that with certain delicates, you may only need half of what you use for a normal load.
WOULD I RECOMMEND IT?
I simply cannot picture myself without it now!!
I am normally oppose to putting softner on everything… but, I have been going a little nuts on everything!!
As always, keep making your art!
