the smell of laundry...
« on: September 22, 2009, 07:06:30 pm »
i've been on the hunt for a specific scent of laundry
detergent or fabric softener, but i've yet to be successful.
the best way i can describe it, is orange smoothie.
its rather strong and stays on your clothes for quite awhile.
an aunt of mine used to use it and i just LOVED the smell
of her towels, but she can't remember what it was, or if it was
the actual detergent or fabric softener sheets.

i usually just buy the cheapest stuff i can find, but i'm
wondering if anyone might know of a great orange/citrus
kind.

what do YOU use?  :wave:

I haven't smelled anything with an orange scent in laundry detergent. I do like fresh scented clothes with the clean smell when they just come out of the dryer though.

 :) Some detergent companies make scented laundry soaps...find your favorite fragrance and proceed from there.

It may have been Tide Citrus and Light with Febreze freshness.  They also had this same scent available in Downy.  I do not think that they make this kind anymore.  They have two other Tide with Febreze frreshness products.  I never got to try this myself, but I really like the Tide spring and renewal febreze scent. 

They still make the Febreze air effects citrus and Light Scent in the form of room spray.  (I think)  At least you can still experience the scent, if this is the scent that you were enjoying.

I know snuggie or febreeze have that kind of fabric softener.
I love the smell of laundry! My mom use to use this fabric softener that she got when she was working in Saudi and it gives you a sense of comfort.

aw man, there's a good chance it was the tide one.
next time i'm out, i'll hunt for it and see if its indeed extinct...

Ooooh!  That sounds cool.  I usually love orange smelling cleaning stuff.  I am currently using Sun vanilla lavender.  It smells pretty good too.

My Favorite is febreeze spray with tide by far i think it is the best smell in the world for clothes even better if you can air dry in the hot sun. I have never heard of an orange smelling laundry detergent but i hope you find it but those gain scents sounded pretty good

One of the reasons that your clothes lose a fair amount of scent is due to putting the clothes in the dryer.  Sometimes I hang some clothes outside.  For some clothes, I  just dry in the dryer for about 10 minutes to get the wrinkles out and to reduce some of the wetness.  I then just hang them up to allow them to finish drying by "air dry".  If you let the clothes air dry, the scent will be stronger on your clothes.
