Some people's clothes seem to smell really strongly of fabric conditioner but others don't, so I guess they aren't using it!

I don't use a fabric softener but instead use vinegar in the final rinse.
I haven't heard of that before! Just ordinary vinegar?
I do the same thing. Just plain white vinegar!
Yep. Me too. Always have. I always buy vinegar when travelling - marvellous for the peace of mind when using laundromats, particularly in RV parks. Other half often comes home from Aldi with a carton of vinegar for me. Did you know you can dilute it 50/50 with water, leave it for a fortnight and it will all become vinegar? Very thrifty.

Yes I do, makes clothes cosy and smell great too!
I use fabric conditioner with some of our clothes and bedding but never the towels, as it can reduce their absorbency. I don't know if I am just used to the smell or if I don't use as much as other people but I'm not aware of it creating a strong smell in the way I am with other folks!
No. I'd don't like adding extra stuff in to the wash if I don't have to because that increases the chances that one of us will be allergic or sensitive to something in it.
You're not wrong. It's usually the perfume in laundry products that causes an allergic reaction and the perfume in fabric conditioner is particularly strong!
Always but I've never noticed a scent.
No, I do not.

I used to use it in the dryer however read that it stop the towels actually drying you and havent used it since.
The only place I still use it is when I wash my llama raw wool.

Yes, the conditioner leaves a coat on the towels that reduces their absorbency. A conditioner has been developed that doesn't work like this but it's usually in the 2-in-1 products that combine detergent and conditioner, so you can still use it with your towels....
I do not us fabric conditioner, and never will, i like the clothes just as they are out of the washer and onto the line in the sun to dry.
