Dear All:

I met a lady a petsmart with a malt whose hair looked and smelled like heaven. I asked the lady what she used to keep the hair so straight, soft and settled and she told me that she used DOWNY intead of rinse.

Have any of you heard about this?

Thanks!!!

That stuff is toxic.

She is killing her dog.

People shouldn't even use it for their fabrics! (Plain vinegar works just as well.)

I remember reading some posts here about using dryer sheets to cut static or detract mosquitoes and remember hearing it was toxic so I can't even imagine how toxic the amount it would take to "condition" a dog would be.

Downy does smell good but I have never heard of or can even imagine someone using it in place of a conditioning rinse. So strange.....

While she is at it, maybe she can give the bath with Tide. What is wrong with people?
