Now I have to admit that even after years of using scent-free detergents, including the excellent Dropps, I still miss that fresh laundry “smell.” So recently I fell in love with the new Dropps In-Wash boosters that add a bit of fabric softener and scent to your laundry load without harsh chemicals that aren’t great for your skin — or even your clothes and towels, for that matter.
While they don’t have strong scents, I do like the mild fragrance of the lavender, wild orchid, and orange blossom. Any of them are step up from “generic detergent scent.” Meh.
They’re so thoughtfully processed that that will make them a little bit more of a luxury, price-wise. So you can do what I do, and just reserve them for our towels and my own clothes since my kids don’t really care what their clothes smell like.
