    I'm not sure why everyone raves about Downy Unstopables, I tried them and absolutely hated them. The smell is way too strong ( even if I enjoyed the scent , it is so over-powering it gave me a headache! I guess if you like the smell they would be good because I had to wash the laundry 3 times to get the smell out! Didn't enjoy it at all. Sorry!

    I purchased these on a whim and regret it. On one load of laundry they left spots that I had to wash again to remove. They left my towels with that weird kind of hotel smell - the one that suggests they tried to cover the mildewy odor but failed. My regular detergent and/or fabric softener leave my clothes and towels smelling better. Definitely not worth the expense and won't buy again.

    Although I really liked the idea of these, I found the scent too overwhelming. I also found these rather expensive as you can buy dryer sheets for half the price. Maybe I just have a sensitive nose but i found them too strong to use on anything but blankets. I would not buy them again

    I was recently quite sick and had to rely on help from my husband's family which is a whole other story. In hospital a few years ago I had developed a rash. It was mainly on my legs, arms and buttocks. It was like a traveling rash and every doctor and nurse insisted that I was scratching and almost resulted myself wearing mittens even though I didn't scratch just because it made the situation worse. My husband watched over me to ensure them that I wasn't.

    Then one day a nurse out of the blue suggested that maybe it was the linen causing the rash since my clothes were washed in the same soap as always. The hospital has linen called hypoallergenic sheets and towel bundles. The moment that they were put on my bed, within a few days my rash disappeared.

    Now about the Downy Unstoppable Fresh In Wash Scent Booster. As I stated my mother-in-law was doing our laundry when I was in hospital. When my husband brought me my pj's and such, we nearly went into an asthma attack. The smell was overwhelming and his mother stood by her actions stating that she used the amount of boosters that was recommended for the wash. While a brief smell was nice, wearing the clothes bathed in that product was not possible and it made me think about that water we are sending to the treatment plants and how much actually made it to our lakes. This is just me, but if we have already used the softener or a fabric sheet (like a Tide Bounce) in the dryer, the rest is just over kill and dare I say a money grab.

    Hospitals and other establishments ask others to refrain from wearing scented products and so many people ignore that request, unaware of the fallout from their actions. They are aware of 2nd hand smoke, next we need to educate about scented items and sensitivities.

    It sounds like a good idea. Who doesn't want their clothes smelling good. Upon use, I found that it is not all that they say. The clothes didn't smell that great and it didn't last. I get a long lasting smell with my Downey.

    I purchased the Downy Unstopables brand shimmer (the pink one), however the chemicals in this product were too overwhelming. The scent is very strong, and will permeate throughout my house, giving myself and my family headaches. I have also had a trial pack of the purple, lavender scented product, and liked that one much better. I have hesitated in buying this product again, and have chosen to stick to my fabric softeners for the future.

    I love scented products. Lets throw that one out there first. When these were released I was thrilled... until I tried them. My clothes smelled great and fresh for quite some time, but got a bad irritation on my skin, likely because whatever products are in them to extend the freshness was something that didn't was out effectively in the rinse cycle. My clothes didn't feel any different compared to a normal dryer sheet. I won't be getting these again.
