Downy® Simple Pleasures® review & giveaway

**Contest Closed**
Winners are: Stesha, Christy, and Autum22. Thanks for participating!!

I was lucky enough to receive a sample bottle of Downy® Simple Pleasures® Orchid Allure Liquid fabric softener to review. All I can say is WOW. I am already a very loyal Downy® user and a huge fan so this was a fun review. The scent is absolutely divine. I have to fight with my daughters to stop using it all up! They said their friends are always complimenting them on how good their practice shirts smell every day. Of course every Mom loves for their family's clothes to smell fresh and clean. I also like the fact that it is not colored, it's like a pale white so there is less fear of having fabric softener streaks or stains on your clothes.

I washed my sheets and blankets and used my liquid fabric softener in my trusty Downy Ball®. Dwayne keeps sniffing our sheets, it's funny! He really loves it and says it is actually more relaxing laying in bed with such a nice scent that really does last. I would totally recommend you to try this awesome product out and you can register for coupons and other offers here. I know this will be a staple in my laundry room and I can't wait to try some other fragrances as well.

Now here is the exciting part, I was offered a giveaway for 3 (three) Momfiles readers to win a year's supply of Downy® Simple Pleasures®!! I know you're excited! Here is how to enter:
