Use the liquid. The sheets will clog up any exhaust pipe or other parts in the dryer. If you live where you vent through the roof, definitely don't use the fabric sheets.

Fabric conditioner does not get used in wash cycle

What brand / model washer do you have? You may find it cheaper and easier to use softener sheets in the dryer instead of liquid fabric softener in the washer.

Fabric conditioner goes straight through

Fabric softener can build up in a machine and cause problems so my suggestion is to quit using it and switch to dryer sheets instead. An alternative is to use sponges with your liquid softener. Click on this link:

The easiest and cheapest solution is to use fabric softener sheets in the dryer and do not use the liquid fabric softener in the washing machine at all.

Dryer sheets

Dryer softener sheets are safe for most dryers. Unless your particular model specifies not to use dryer sheets, you may assume it's safe.

Which is better for the dryer and why, dryer sheets or fabric softener in the wash?

Liquid in the washer is better since sheets in the dryer are prone to leaving stains (read back of package about stain warning on every box of softener sheets i have ever seen) also the sheets leave a build up on the thermostats and moisture sensor

While the liquid in the washer softens the clothes and has no build up or staining issues such as the sheets

I always use cold or warm water temperatures. I now use Snuggle liquid fabric softener (and an assortment of other liquids in the past) in the agitator mounted dispenser. The softener (all of them) leave...

This is a common problem you will experience with just about any liquid fabric softener you use, Joyce. Liquid softener is essentially a wax. Over a period of time it will cause the gunked up mess in the dispenser you describe. I don't think you will find a liquid form of softener that won't do that. You can try switching to dryer sheets, but you will experience the same mess inside your dryer if the vent ducting is not kept clean. Of course, this only happens in the most extreme cases of dryer neglect. Your best option, in my opinion, would be to use what you have and periodically clean the dispenser. You can do this by simply removing it from the agitator and soaking it in the some hot tap water. The deposits will dissolve. If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

When should u add softener?

Dear seymour,

please rate this solution if it meets ur need else choose fixya.

Fabric softener is one of those things we don’t think much about, but use frequently. How does it work? How is it used? Fabric softener is essentially a chemical cocktail that helps soften the fibers in textiles. It makes them feel less harsh and has anti-soiling and anti-staining properties. With such names as Diethylenetriamine, Aminoethylethanolamine and Triethylenetetramine, these chemicals sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but they are mostly byproducts of animal fats. Fabric softeners come in two types: liquids and dryer sheets. The liquid softeners are added to the rinse water for each load of clothes. Dryer sheets are paper or sponge-like pieces that are coated with the dry softener and are added to the dryer for every load. Some liquid softeners tout that they will leave clothes brighter and prevent discoloration from chlorine. These claims must, of course, be evaluated by each person.

Fabric softeners are used in any form to help make clothing feel softer and to prevent static cling. Anyone who has unloaded a batch of towels from the dryer in winter knows exactly what static cling is. Dryer sheets lubricate the textile fibers to reduce static electricity generated by the drying process. Liquid softeners serve much the same purpose.
There is a great amount of information about fabric softeners on the Internet, and while browsing, a person will undoubtedly come up on Web sites saying the chemicals in fabric softeners are dangerous and can cause a whole host of illnesses and allergies. There is no doubt that some people are allergic to the chemicals and/or dyes in fabric softener. They can cause rashes or upper respiratory distress. Some manufacturers have started producing dye and fragrance-free liquid fabric softeners in response to this problem. Some small companies also produce a vegetable-based, dye and fragrance-free softener that is biodegradable and less likely to cause allergic reactions. There are also some ways of softening the laundry without using any kind of commercial fabric softener. Vinegar and baking soda soften the fibers naturally. A person can add one-fourth cup baking soda to the load at the beginning of the wash cycle, and then a half-cup of white vinegar during the rinse cycle. Another home recipe suggests diluting 1 cup of glycerin in a gallon of water and using one-half cup of the mixture per load of laundry. Still another method uses three parts water to one part commercial hair conditioner. Fabric softener should only be used with standard fabrics. Fine washables such as linen or silk should not have any kind of fabric softeners used on them, if they are machine washable. The chemicals can destroy the look and feel of a fabric like linen, and dull colors in silk. However, most standard cotton and polyester blends are safe with the use of fabric softener. Dryer sheets are a blessing for socks and towels, since these items seem to be most susceptible to static cling. Liquid fabric softener can also usually be diluted to one-fourth strength in order make it last. There is usually no discernible loss of softness or increase in static cling when the softener is diluted. Each person needs to decide whether using a commercial fabric softener is appropriate. Those with allergies or very sensitive skin may want to consider a home recipe, since they are made of ingredients that are readily available. People also need to remember to keep the fabric softener from their fine or delicate washables, especially linen and silk.
