Haven't tried Downey in years. It's needed most now with the cold weather and static is at its worst. I like having a variety in sense and the clothes were so soft. Especially noticeable in my towels! Thank you, I had used the sheets in the dryer for so long I had forgotten about adding fabric softener to the washer.
Use a dishwasher?--use Jet Dry--or don't bother and just hand wash. Without it I have spots on the glasses, just like you see in commercials. Maybe it's because I have harder water with more minerals. Don't know, don't care, just use the product and my problem goes away. I'm off to do more important things with my time.
I usually buy these copper top batteries or the competitors bunny. Anything else dies sooner. I prefer the Duracell and wait till they have a "buy one get 50% off the second pack" and buy two packs for Christmas. They usually sell out quickly when there is a sale!
