For more than 30 years, Snuggle has been synonymous with softness. When most of us see Snuggle the Bear, the mascot for Snuggle Fabric Softener, we're thinking a soft touch. Now, you can also think fragrance thanks to Snuggle Scent Boosters.
Snuggle Scent Boosters
In addition to Snuggle fabric softeners line of liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets, there are now Snuggle Scent Boosters in two fragrances - Lavender Joy and Blue Iris Bliss.
New fragrances added in 2015 are Wild Orchid Wonder and Island Dreams.The scent boosters are positioned to be used in your washer during the wash cycle along with Snuggle fabric softeners which soften the feel of your fabrics in the rinse cycle and Snuggle dryer sheets that help control static in the dryer.
Snuggle Scent Boosters are single dose pacs with a premeasured amount of product. You can use one or two or three depending upon how much fragrance you wish to add to your laundry. The pacs are safe to use in standard and high-efficiency (he) washers. As with any single dose laundry product, the pac should be added to the drum of the washer before clothes and water are added. They should never be placed in an automatic laundry product dispenser.
The product is safe to use with any washable fabric including children's sleepwear. Snuggle Scent Boosters do not include ingredients that soften fabrics by coating fibers.
So, they will not interfere with the flame retardency of any fabric.
Ingredients can be found under the first aid warnings listed on the package and you can find the complete list of ingredients on the Sun Products website. They are:
- Sodium Chloride
- Polymer Binding Agent
- Polyvinyl Water Soluble Film
The instructions are offered in English and Spanish.
Snuggle and the Sun Products Story
Snuggle fabric softener was introduced by Unilever to select markets in the early 1980s. By 1989, it was a nationwide brand. Since 1983, Snuggle Bear has been the mascot. The puppet was created by Kermit Love of the Jim Henson Studios. The voice was originally provided by Corinne Orr. As of late 2009, the bear is voiced by Elena M. Schloss, a New York animation and commercial voice over actor. In 2008, Unilever sold the brand to Sun Products.
Within the liquid line, there are Ultra Snuggle in Blue Sparkle, Gentle Spring and Free Clear and Snuggle Exhilarations in White Lavender & Sandalwood, Sweet Blossoms & Wildflowers, White Lilac & Spring Flowers, Blue Iris & Bamboo Silk and Wild Orchid & Vanilla.
The dryer sheet line features Snuggle Blue Sparkle and Gentle Spring. You'll also find Snuggle Exhilaration dryer sheets in White Lavender & Sandlewood and Blue Iris & Bamboo Silk, Wild Orchid & Vanilla, White Lilac & Spring Flowers and Sweet Blossoms & Wildflowers.

Product Review and Recommendation
If you like to add fragrance to your laundry, the laundry shelves are now stocked with products like Snuggle Scent Boosters, Downy Unstopables and Gain Fireworks to help you do just that. For many, adding fragrance to laundry is enjoyable and may even symbolize that the laundry is now clean.
Snuggle Scent Booster are simple to use and do provide a scent that lasts for many, many days. Using them in conjunction with their similarly scented Snuggle cousins enhances that even more.
I'm not a big fan of added scents to anything but if you are, these work quite well. As with any single-dose product, be sure to handle with dry hands to prevent early "melting" and keep them away from children. You should also store the product so that it cannot be crushed. My bag of Snuggle Scent Boosters was accidentally crushed and some of the pacs popped open. Since the product is a dry, powdered formula, I was still able to use the scent boosters by tossing away the polyvinyl film.
If it is added fragrance you desire in your laundry, Snuggle Scent Boosters are a good choice and less expensive than other national brands.
