I love for my home to smell good. I'm always burning some kind of candles; however, yesterday we had some last minute guests to stop by and wouldn't you know that I was out of my scentsy candles! I had to think quick. I got an old pot, filled it with water and added 1/4 cup of April Fresh Downy. I just let it simmer on the stove. It made your home smell great! Please give this a try. If you prefer another fabric softener, us it the same way.
