    Got some fabric softner that is really thick and I hate to throw it out. Is there anything I can use it for? I don't have any wallpaper to strip either.

    Yes, use the softener on used dryer sheets over and over. I know a girl who swears by this and has saved a lot of money. Now if it doesn't smell good, pass on this advice. LOL

    That sounds like a good idea...or just add some water to it, and shake it up really good.

    I would think you could just dilute it with hot water and it should be fine.

    Clean hard water stains from windows. Cover the stain with full-strength Downy Fabric Softener, wait ten minutes, then rinse with a damp cloth.


    Clean glass and Plexiglas tabletops. Mix one capful of Downy Fabric Softener in a gallon of water in a plastic bucket, and sponge the tabletops with this lint-free cleanser


    Clean soap scum from shower doors. Mix one capful of Downy Fabric Softener with a quart of warm water in a plastic bucket, and use a clean cloth to wipe the shower doors clean.


    Eliminate static shock on carpets. Mix one capful of Downy Fabric Softener into a spray bottle filled with water, and spray the carpets.


    Use as cream rinse for your hair. If you're out of cream rinse, use a drop of Downy Fabric Softener in your final rinse.
