You can try some of these ideas;

- Use a less intense dryer setting
- Remove clothes while still just a bit damp + hang till dry
- If your dryer has an "automatic" setting use that rather than letting it go beyond the time it takes to dry.
- Be sure you're using enough detergent.

When all else fails and you want to smell like a lovely laundry detergent, hit up Sephora for "Clean Warm Cotton"... Amazing little parfum it tis... Laughing

I use Gain with a little bit of Borax (make sure it disolves in a little warm water before putting your clothes in)and Downy fabric softener then dry with Kirkland dryer sheets. My clothes come out smelling great.

Gain is really strong so the scent lasts and I'm using a concentrated version. I've also seen that Gain just came out with dryer sheets. I'd love to try them but can't justify buying them since I still have a box of 500 from Costco. I'm sure they smell divine since I love the smell of Gain!

have you tried fabric freshener sprays, like febreeze?

years ago, when i had more time, and i was fixated and determined to have fresh detergent smelly clothes, i would place fresh new dryer sheets in between clean folded clothes, in the drawers and closets. HTH

Did you all see those lint rollers made by Bounce that take the fuzzies off your clothes but also freshen them with Bounce fabric softener smell? I haven't tried them, but it might be worth looking into. Also, there's a type of laundry detergent (I can't remember who makes it) that has some type of microscopic renewing fragrance beads in it that are supposed to release fragrance every time you move in your clothes. Does anyone know what I mean? I saw the commercial on TV but can't remember the brand.

i find what really helps with making my clothes smell fresh but also kill any bacteria germs etc...is a few drops of tea tree oil in water...and then doing a final rinse from that!

It won't make your clothes smell like the detergent you use, but if you find a fabric softner you like I would suggest that. I never used it until this past summer when I started hanging my clothes on the line. I always thought it was an unneccesary step but now I really love the smell & the way my clothes feel.

All you need to do is leave fabric softener out including the fabric sheets. Those are too perfumy. UGH! I never use fabric softner. Better still, hang your clothes outside if you have a clothesline.

Another idea is to dilute fabric softener in a spray bottle and spray your clothes with that. Either as you are folding and putting them away or when you put them on.
