I subscribe to some of the Care2 newsletters and a piece about alternatives to fabric softeners came through this morning. So I decided to take a closer look and then do a google search.

The interesting thing is that I’ve never used fabric softeners. I’m not domestic enough to do that. Never could understand the need for it, honestly. It’s like having detailing done on my car. What’s the point? But I’ve always been a bit abby-normal (as in Young Frankestein).
