Many people like to use liquid fabric softeners, because they really do make clothes feel softer against your skin, but one of their downsides is that they can cause stains. That is because most softeners are made with oils, which coat the fabric, and we all know oils can cause stains.
There is a technique to properly using fabric softener to lessen the possibility of staining. I've also written detailed instructions on how to use liquid fabric softener in your washing machine. Make sure to review this article to see if you can identify any problems with they way you've been adding the softener which may be causing your problems.
However, the fact that you say the stains are occurring even when you don't add the Lenor softener makes me wonder what is really happening. One possibility is that the softener is still coating the inside of the machine even after the wash, so even if you don't add extra the next time it may still cause stains.
To fix this issue try cleaning the inside of your washing machine. For example, there are quite a number of washing machine cleaners on the market you can use. In addition, you can try to clean it yourself, with hot water and bleach to see if this solves the problem.
I hope this advice helps, so you can continue to enjoy your Lenor softener. I have to say, it sounds like a good scent, with a "hint of honey," as the website states.
(For those of us here in the states, Lenor is mainly available in the UK, and a couple other countries in Europe, and is made by Procter & Gamble.)
Dave has shared a problem he has with this fabric softener.
My wife uses this product. It is the triple concentrated type, and the smell is so strong if I use a handkerchief it makes my nose bleed and also when my bedding has been changed the next morning I wake up with a horrific thick head.
This stuff is slowly killing me. How can I tell the wife the damage it is causing to my health? The problem is because it is triple concentrated. She still puts a full cap in the washer. I tried telling her, but she says the smell last longer.
I'm sorry to hear you are having such a severe allergic reaction to Lenor softener Dave, without the ability to get relief.
Normally, when someone experiences an allergic reaction to any type of laundry supply the first and most effective step is to stop using that product to stop the reaction from continuing. Unfortunately, this doesn't sound like such a simple step in your case since the person doing laundry doesn't wish to stop using it.
I don't feel capable of touching on advice about marriage, so I won't. However, I will say you are right to want to stop using so much of the scent.
They have now come out with some hypoallergenic fabric softeners which are unscented. Perhaps this could be a compromise in your household, so your wife gets the softness she wants but you don't have to smell the scent.
