"The chemicals in fabric softeners are pungent and strong smelling -- so strong that they require the use of these heavy fragrances (think 50 times as much fragrance) just to cover up the smells. Furthermore, synthetic fabrics, which are the reason fabric softeners were created in the first place, do not smell good either when heated in a dryer or heated by our bodies ... hence the need for even more hefty fragrances. In other words, remove all the added fragrance that endears people to fabric softeners and -- like the cliché wolf in sheep's clothing -- the real smells of the chemical-laced fabric softener and the synthetic fabrics they were designed around may prompt people to shoot their laundry machines and be done with it."

I had to re-post this excerpt after going to my email and finding an Google-added advertisement surrounding my mail encouraging people to use Bounce ... the stinkiest sheet of them all, everywhere, 'freshen' your car ... there's a whole website for this insanity!
There's no link to that website.
"No, no, no, Nannette!"
What would Swami Beyondananda say about dryer sheets?
