Dropps Fabric Softener Pacs: Mineral Based Way To Soften Clothes

by Taylor

Dropps fabric softener pacs have just recently come onto the market, and they are marketed as an easy way to both soften and scent clothes all at the same time.

I've been following along with the trend as laundry scent boosters become popular, and these pacs do add one of the following scents: lavender, orange blossom or wild orchid. In fact, the addition of scent is one of the selling points of this product.

Although at first the company didn't make a scent free version, they've not created one as well!

However, unlike some scent boosters that do nothing but add scent (such as Gain Fireworks and Downy Unstopables), these pacs also soften your clothes.

After reviewing the information about them, this product appears to be very similar to Purex Crystals, which is also a fabric softener and scent booster rolled all into one.

When the Purex Crystals first came out they were revolutionary, because unlike more traditional oil based fabric softeners which must be added in the rinse cycle (which can be a pain to remember), this product could be added at the beginning of the wash cycle.

The same can be said for the new Dropps fabric softener pacs. You just throw in a pac (along with a Dropps laundry detergent pac or other laundry detergent) at the beginning of the load, before adding clothes, and don't have to worry about the fabric softener throughout the rest of the load.

The reason you can throw it in at the beginning is that it is a mineral-based formula, instead of an oil-based type of softener. That means it doesn't have any of the disadvantages oil-based varieties can have, such as decreasing absorbency of towels, interfering with flame retardancy of children's pajamas, or messing up the ability of sports fabrics to wick away moisture from the body.

Plus, Dropps says that the minerals are all natural, meaning this is a natural fabric softener.

I was actually contacted by Dropps who asked me to give this product a try, but as you all know I can only use non-scented products for our laundry in this home, so I had to decline (since at the time they didn't have a scent free version, although they do now). That means I can't say how the product works from a personal experience, at least at this time.

Instead, I would love to hear from any of you who've used it, sharing your opinions about how you like it. You can share your fabric softener reviews here.

In addition, although a lot of people love these laundry scent boosters, please recall that with many of the other brands I've gotten complaints about allergic reactions too. That is common for scented products, so if anyone has experienced allergies related to this product I'd like to hear about that too.
