      What is Fabric Softener?

      Fabric softener is a liquid that coats the surface of your clothes in a thin layer of lubricants to make them feel softer and smoother.

      Fabric softener has several benefits: it provides some resistance to stains and wrinkles, prevents static cling and improves how easily an iron will glide over the clothes. If you have a top-load washer, pour the fabric softener into the cuplike dispenser at the top of the agitator; add it manually during the rinse cycle if there is no dispenser. If you have a front-load washer, add the fabric softener to the proper dispenser, and it will automatically dispense during the final rinse.
