So, we just moved into a house apartment and it came with a washer/dryer. So, after washing a few loads I noticed that the top loading washing machine kept getting fabric softener back in the fabric softener hole (in the agitator). So, I decided to take it apart and figure it out. Man, there was gooey fabric softener clogging all of the holes. I guess the former tenants loved the stuff. So, I had to unclog it and clean it. Well, I got some on my arm and got a CHEMICAL BURN! Withing 5 min, I broke out in this awful bumpy red rash. 2 weeks later my skin there is still rough. I will never ever use liquid fabric softener (not that I was anyway). Plus, now anytime I smell that smell I about gag! Just thought I would share.
