Carolina.mccauley answered the question we were all thinking. Do you really need to use fabric softener? Her video talks about its effects on your clothes and towels. Fabric softener makes them less absorbent, and they can make the fibers of your clothes wear more easily. However, instead of avoiding fabric softener, she uses white vinegar for a better swap.
