The processes by which the softeners of the invention are produced also affect the properties of the softeners. Accordingly, the invention also relates to methods of making the softeners of the present inention. The processes for producing aqueous concentrated fabric softeners containing fabric softening quaternary ammonium compounds, a fatty acid hydroxyalkyl polyamine condensate and a fatty amine polyglycol ether are characterized in that the quaternary ammonium compound, the condensate and the fatty amine polyglycol ether, optionally together with a polyglycol ether and a fatty acid ester, are mixed with one another at temperatures of from 50° to 70° C. to form a homogeneous melt. The resulting melt is mixed and homogenized at elevated temperature with water heated to temperatures of up to 80° C. using a mixing unit which develops high shearing forces. After homogenization, the mixture is cooled and an acid, a viscosity regulator and other auxilaries commonly used in fabric softeners are optionally added.

Snuggle Exhilarations White Lilac & Spring Flowers Concentrated Fabric Softener truly captures every scent of spring in one bottle. When I first opened the bottle to sample the scent at my local grocery store, I was just shocked at how well of a job they did at creating the perfect scent. I decided right then that I was not going to buy just one of these. I ended up getting three containers of this fabric softener so I would be sure to always have it on-hand to ensure that my clothes will always smell like spring-time flowers. I would recommend this for anyone who is looking to spend a little extra money to have their clothes extra soft and smelling great.
The performance of this fabric softener is great. My clothes and towels come out extremely soft and smelling like white lilac and spring flowers.
The smell of this fabric softener is absolutely unbelievable. I have never purchased a fabric softener that smells better than this one.
