How can I get my laundry to smell good?

I can't get my clothes to smell good after I wash them. I buy really nice smelling detergent and liquid fabric softner, but after they come out of the dryer, they don't smell like anything.

My friend's laundry always smells good and smells good for days.

Thanks,
Jodi from CA

I add just plain old baking soda to my laundry detergent (dry). I probably add about a cup. It makes my sheets smell SO GOOD! Smells very fresh. I also use about 1/4 cup bleach, no more, because it will only smell like bleach and wash in hot water. (07/26/2005)

Without saying anything about your laundry, why not just ask your friend how she gets her laundry to smell so good? Some people use a fragrance like lavender or something and spray it on a dry towel and toss into the dryer. I haven't done it, but makes sense to me. You could even ask her if she does something like this. (07/26/2005)

I know what you mean. I sometimes pass people whose clothes smell so fresh and wonderful. I have used Cheer and that works ok. (07/27/2005)

I use Gain, original scent, detergent. When I bought my house the former owners left some here, and I loved the scent so much I've been buying it ever since. (07/27/2005)

I use Gain detergent (powder) and Gain liquid fabric softener too. I LOVE IT! All my family smells the clothes and tells me how everything smells so good. I used to use the fabric softener sheets but they really didn't do much. I think the Gain detergent and the same type liquid fab. soft. that's what makes the difference but try Gain a few times. I think you'll like it. (07/27/2005)

Do you use fabric softner sheets? I use the liquid softner in the washer for certain items like jeans and sheets but always use the fabric softner sheets in the dryer. I use Bounce sheets and the laundry always smells good to me. (09/01/2005)

I know the answer. I have been attempting to figure this out for years. Use 3 times the normal amount of liquid fabric softener (whatever you like. I prefer downy ultra) and the key is, either do not put the clothes in the dryer or just dry them a little and put them on a hangar. You won't believe the difference! (12/11/2005)

I usually buy some of those dishwashing liquids that smells almost like perfume and mix them with my laundry detergent. The result is good, the clothes smell so good. (07/26/2006)

I like to wash my clothes in One cup of white vinegar, One cup of baking soda and Half cup of borax along with the detergent. If you can during your rinse cycle try putting between 20-30 drops of some lemon, orange, lavender, etc oil essence in your laundry, (you can get these from any health food store). (08/19/2006)
