Fabric softener in a squeeze bottle
  [vote for,

Very simple. Fabric softener in a squeeze bottle, like a large size hair conditioner bottle, so you don't have to deal with unscrewing caps and those bottles dripping all over the place.

       But fabric softener is liquid, not thick like hair conditioner... right?

       I'd compare the consistency to that of dishsoap, which is readily available in squeeze bottles. I wouldn't be surprised if this was baked or if there was a plausible reason this shouldn't be done. But until someone finds it, + !

       squeezy bottles are for dispensing a tablespoon sized dollop of whatever, rather than (?) 6 times this amount of fabric conditioner; possibly involving a great hefty-manly grip squeeze and a resultant flat bottle. there is nothing stopping you transferring containers if you wish.

       they do.

       I think he means like bedsheets, so he can soften while he sleeps

       how unlike a man - oh well! thanks death <shiver>

       Buy a big squeeze bottle - put the fabric softener in it. Baked.

       Uhh... *what* hardens exactly?

       You know... *it*

       Actually, I do put it in a hair conditioner bottle and it works great. It's thinner than hair conditioner, so a manly squeeze is not needed. With water-saving front-loading washing machines, which have small softener dispensers, you only use a dollop-and-a-half. Actually, even with top loaders, you don't need as much as recommended.
Oh. I think I just figured out why it's not baked.

       [Mr B] don't impose your softener stuff on people who like their fabrics coarse and hard and scratchy. we're hard - we are.

       Doctor: But Pedro, why did you put fabric softener in a squeeze bottle and squirt it on your burrito?
Pedro: I’ve been consteepated, and the daytime TV said eet would make my sheets softer.

       The cap flew off and now my laundry equipment is just a big gooey blob. On the other hand, my sheets are so soft that I can just pour them onto the bed.
