fabric softener definition and meaning

What is a "fabric softener"?

A fabric softener is a chemical solution added to the wash cycle of laundry to reduce static cling and make clothes softer and more comfortable to wear. It works by coating the fibers of the clothing with a thin layer of lubricant that helps to prevent the build-up of static electricity, making it easier to separate the clothes after washing. Fabric softener also contains fragrances that leave a pleasant scent on the clothes. Some fabric softeners can also be used in the dryer, providing additional benefits like reducing wrinkles and extending the life of the clothing by reducing friction. However, fabric softeners can sometimes cause skin irritation or allergic reactions, so it is important to choose a product that is safe for your skin type.
