I received a sample of Downy Unstopables in the Fresh scent. The scent was so strong I could smell it through the packaging it came in. It had a very fresh, fabric softner type scent.
It was time to do a load of laundry and after everything was in I dumped the contents of the package out and let it do its job. After the laundry was done the house was filled with the scent of the Unstopables. Some people might consider this a good thing but it was a bit overwhelming! The scent was way too strong for me and gave me a slight headache.
I went to transfer the clothes to the dryer and little beads of the product started falling everywhere. A good amount never dissolved! My washer was not filled to the brim so I'm not sure why they didn't dissolve. I was very annoyed because now I had to do it all over again! While I was waiting for the laundry I looked at the package and found out that Unstopables are not fabric softener. They are only to give laundry fragrance. Really?! This just doesn't make sense to me. Yes I want my laundry to smell nice but doesn't a fabric softener do that? And at $8 for 13oz it's way too pricey for just nice smelling laundry.
I won't be using this again. The Purex Crystals (my review) are much better in my opinion. They smell great and are a fabric softener. Oh and they are half the price!
