    I use Omo Advanced and that on it's own smells lovely but also i use 'Comfort Fabric Softener' in Rosy Blush* that smells divine. Hard to explain the smell it's not hugely rosey it has a slightly strawberry smell but nicer..

    Oh and i agree -definitely dry in the sun when you can.

    I think my washing has no smell. We use Omo Sensitive.

    I've heard fabric softeners have nasty toxins in them so I steer clear of them - not really necessary I reckon.

    Have you cleaned your machine recently? If my machine hasnt been cleaned for a while it can affect the smell of washing.

    I also find that if clothes arent dried quickly or in the sun they can get a musty smell.

    I tend to keep sachets of fabric softener in my cupboards as well to keep things smelling fresh. I don't use it in my wash but it does keep the linen closet smelling lovely

    I agree.. the Earth's Choice Jasmine and Lily softener is divine! I use Earth's Choice detergent too. I find the green washing powders and liquids don't have as much fragrance as the less eco-friendly ones, so it was good to find this softener. Mmmmmmm.

    White vinegar + bicarbonate and a hot empty wash will help to break down the greasy enzyme and leave your washing clean and smelling good and leave your laundry fresh!

    My mums tip; once a month put about 2 cups of white vinegar and 2 litres of boiling water (use a hot cycle) and cycle with no load - this gets rid of a certain damp smell, which I never knew existed until I got pregnant!
    I also never knew that my mother cleaned the washing machine. Apparently it also gets rid of washing powder build up in the hoses.

    And if you use powder rather than liquid if you dissolve the wading powder in boiling water before you add it to your wash, it's better for your clothes
