We enjoy laundry that smells clean and feels soft. Unfortunately not all laundry products are made from safe ingredients. A University of Washington researcher found that scented laundry products emit hazardous chemicals. Researchers examined the air vented from dryer vents and found 25 volatile organic compounds, including seven hazardous air pollutants. It is no wonder we look for alternative products to use in our laundry.
MelaSoft uses natural essential oils and biodegradable plant-based softening agents, and is the first fabric softener to use fragrance capsules without formaldehyde! MelaSoft is available in dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener. Each is available in two fragrances. Did you know that the Clean Cotton scent uses tangerine, clove, and patchouli essential oils? And Spring Breeze uses chamomile, geranium, and cedar wood? With long-lasting scent encapsulation technology, clothes laundered with MelaSoft continue to smell naturally clean and fresh for days after being washed.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide, in addition to recommending MelaSoft for laundry, notes that MelaSoft can be used for other clever uses:
Hair Static Electricity — When you are challenged with static hair, spray some diluted MelaSoft on your hairbrush or comb. It works wonders to calm a bad hair day.
Glass Tabletops — To keep the lint off after cleaning mix 1/4 teaspoon of MelaSoft and water in a 16oz spray bottle. Spray on and dry with a cloth towel. Use also to quickly polish chrome fixtures in the bath and kitchen.
Insect Repellent — Save your used MelaSoft Dryer Sheets and carry one in your front pocket, tie to your hair, or slip it through a belt loop. Since the MelaSoft fragrance is from essential oils, it makes sense that they will help keep bugs away.
Dusting — Since MelaSoft reduces static cling, use old dryer sheets to dust television and computer screens. Try a used dryer sheet to pick up dust and pet hair.
MelaSoft Fabric Softeners with comforting essential oils are an economical way to add a bit of pampering to our daily routine.

Little strips of MelaSoft Dryer Sheets work great to protect favorite plants from being eaten by deer. Deer use their extreme sense of smell to alert them of dangers and if scents are strong they become nervous and move on to eat somewhere else. I have tested this out by tying a tiny strip of MelaSoft to a blooming tulip. Tulips are like candy to deer. They walked right past the plant and garden. I try to keep strong scented plants growing and blooming in the front open garden. But early spring and late fall can be a "quiet" time in the garden for deer repelling plants, and if the deer are active the MelaSoft can save a plant or new tree. Usually I only have to tie the little strips on the plants once. The deer quickly learn to avoid this area and move on to eat at other yards.
I am quite new to Melaleuca, only in my second month actually. This month I ordered the EcoSense Home Conversion Pack. I received the MelaSoft Clean Cotton sheets and liquid softener, and they are just great! I have a few very old and very used towels that I'd love to have like new again; all soft and pleasant to dry off with. I've read how amazing the results are supposed to be using MelaSoft, so I put it to the test. I washed the towels with MelaPower 6x, MelaBrite, and the MelaSoft liquid softener. Threw them into the dryer with a sheet or two, and after I took them out, I was completely amazed at how soft and great smelling my "old" towels were! I couldn't be more pleased with these products or Melaleuca as a whole! Thanks so much Melaleuca and RM Barry, you truly have changed my outlook on cleaning, and my family's health
I really love using the MelaSoft from Melaleuca. Several years ago I learned a very frugal way to use it from The Melaleuca Wellness Guide. I take a clean cloth and put about a tablespoon of MelaSoft on it and rub it in. Then I put the cloth in the dryer. It will last for several dryings. When the laundry becomes staticy then I just repeat the procedure and.....voila....another "dryer cloth" ready for several more loads. Works Great! And saves money too. I LOVE MELALEUCA PRODUCTS!!! Thank you RM Barry for you and your wonderful book, and your great newsletters!
I love Melaleuca. My husband and I have been customers for almost 4 years. I love the fabric softener. It keeps our clothes smelling good, and they are so soft. I also use the dryer sheets in my trash cans. It will keep the trash can smelling fresh. And it also keeps those pesky little fruit flies away and other bugs. After emptying the trash can, I will throw one dryer sheet in the bottom of the can. Then put the new trash bag in the can. I will replace the dryer sheet every other month. No more flies around the trash! I also will pin a half sheet on me to keep bugs away when I run or walk.
I have been a fan of Melaleuca products and The Melaleuca Wellness Guide for over 2 years now, and my positive experiences keep growing! I love the MelaSoft liquid for the laundry. It works great and smells even better. But my favorite use for the sheets is for my horses. I can tie one into the manes and repel flies like crazy, and not have to use any of the usual repellants that are full of chemicals. Thank you Melaleuca and RM Barry!
One of my biggest frustrations with laundry (before Melaleuca) was fabric softener. No matter what brand I bought, it would get so thick I couldn't thin it, and I would end up throwing about a quarter of the bottle away. And forget trying to clean all the gummy, built up yuck it left in my washer. The dispenser cup was awful, and I just couldn't get into all the crevices in the machine to clean it. I was amazed when I started using MelaSoft. Not only did it last all the way to the last drop, it did not leave a gummy residue. And to my amazement - it CLEANED the places I hadn't been able to get the old goop out of in the dispenser cup! Now I don't have to toss fabric softener or clean my washer anymore except to wipe down the outside. I love MelaSoft!
I have found multi uses for MelaSoft dryer sheets! I put them in clothes storage units to guard against moths and against the stale smell that settles in after time. I change them out from time to time. I put them in the hanging shoe compartments in the closets even inside the shoes that are stored for a season. In one house we lived in there was a problem with moths. I put the sheets inside the garment bags that held woolen and linen clothing over a season. No more moths! As for the liquid, the most innovative use was in carpet cleaning. We used a solution of MelaPower, MelaMagic and Sol-U-Mel to clean our carpets and was really amazed with the result! I then went over it again with water and MelaSoft to prevent the static that often causes newly cleaned carpets to attract dirt. It worked! Our carpet stayed cleaner than it ever had with other cleaners! I even use it on panty hose when I wear a dress that tends to cling. I think there are many uses I haven't discovered yet!
I was introduced to Melaleuca in January! I began transforming my home with all of the amazing products that Melaleuca has to offer! One of the first things I bought was the MelaSoft Fabric Softener in Spring Breeze! I had always used the big name store brand that you can find in any local supermarket! I always went by the cap full rule to make sure my clothing smelled fresh and were soft, but they never seemed soft or fresh except when they first came out of the dryer! We don't normally wear everything straight out of the dryer and by the time we wore our clothing they no longer had that soft feel or fresh smell! I was paying high prices and not getting the results I wanted! Once I switched to Melaleuca, the MelaSoft bottle said only one pump or 1/2 oz needed! I was very skeptical thinking if a whole cap full of the big name brand can't keep my clothing smelling fresh and feeling soft, then how can a half ounce of this stuff really do the job? But I went with the directions just to test the strength and working power of the MelaSoft! I then put my clothes in the dryer with a couple of the MelaSoft Dryer Sheets as I always had with the bigger name brands from my local supermarket! My clothing came out of the dryer feeling amazingly soft and smelling great! I put the clothes away as I always had! But to my surprise a week later when I went to get my favorite shirt out of my closet it still felt soft, and the amazing out of the dryer smell was still there!! I absolutely couldn't believe it! All these years I have spent a ridiculous amount to make my clothing smell good, only to find that they weren't fresh after only a few hours in the closet! Not with MelaSoft. My clothing feels soft and smells great even after days of hanging in my closet, and at a more affordable price than any supermarket could ever offer! I would recommend MelaSoft Fabric Softener or Dryer Sheets to anyone! They really work, and the dryer sheets also work great to keep dresser drawers smelling fresh and clean, and keep the musty smell of a closed drawer away! I just stick one in each drawer and it will keep them smelling fresh for weeks and weeks!!
The MelaSoft Fabric Softener...it is so concentrated that all I have to do is open the bottle, cover the opening with a rag, (a quarter of a damp sponge would work also) turn bottle upside down so a little of the liquid gets on the rag, place the rag in the dryer with a load of wet clothes and "Voila" the whole load is softened. Talk about saving money! My one bottle of MelaSoft should last for at least a gazillion years. Well, maybe not that long...Can you tell I love MelaSoft?
I have an 18 month old daughter that can't live without her stuffed "Piglet" from Winnie-the-Pooh. She sucks on his ears and hands. So needless to say, it is her pacifier. I'm so thankful for the MelaSoft dryer sheets since there is no formaldehyde in them, and they also make her Piglet smell so nice after a fresh launder. I wouldn't trust any other dryer sheets since she puts it in her mouth!
