Special (Doubtblush) Guest Post Helen Killer - Food-Scented Fabric Softener

Oh Regretsy, how we love you. You validate each and every Ewwww! and WTF!?! that outrageously ridiculous handmade duds bring out in us while simultaneously adding the snark track we could never come up with. Now that you're here, guesting on Outblush, we hope you'll stay...

By now you've noticed a disturbing trend at the supermarket: food scented laundry products. I have to admit, I don't get it. Why would I want that? There's already food on my clothes, that's why I'm washing them.

The situation is getting out of hand. Almond Peach? Cucumber Melon? Green Tea Ginger? What is this; Target or Pinkberry?

As if we haven't suffered enough, Downy is having a contest. Come up with your own stink cocktail, and if you win, your creation will be the newest addition to their Simple Pleasures line!

Not that there's anything "simple" about Spice Blossom Dare; a mix of cinnamon, sugar, cloves and possibly pie crust. If Downey would just come out with the Cool Whip fabric softener, I could wash my Thanksgiving pants.

Bonus! Check out the title on Downy's own page (screen shot above): they're apparently so disoriented by all the smells they can't even remember the name of their own product.
