    Was excited to try this, waited until it was on sale as full price was out of price range to try something new for me. Glad I waited, not impressed with the scent boosting power at all. Doesn't really add lasting scent for additional days as ad leads consumer to believe. Smell may be a tad stronger initially, but does not last longer.

    This product is terrible. The scents are far too overpowering. Anyone with allergies should avoid this product. I am definitely not a fan of this product and I will not be buying it ever!

    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.

    Downy Unstopables Fresh Scent was very convenient to use but the scent was totally overbearing. I washed my bedding using only half of the recommended product and an hour after sleeping on the freshly laundered sheets with this product I had to get out of bed and put different sheets on the bed because of the overbearing scent. The scent clung to my skin and clothing also. I would definitely use this product to launder my towels only.

    I was really looking forward to trying this I had gotten a sample on my detergent bottle and I wasn't convinced so I bought a bottle and was quite disappointed I didn't smell any extra anything I was using gain along with gain dryer sheets because I love the scent but it didn't add any smell maybe if I used a less smelly detergent to begin with? Anyway they aren't for me I passed them off to a neighbour who said she liked them but they were to pricey to buy

    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.
