They cleaned decently, but as far as softening and anti-static capabilities of it, they failed. I wasn't sure if the would work to begin with, because I figured the detergent would wash away the fabric softener strip on the cloth. It didn't wash it off, but by the time it went through all cycles, there wasn't much left but a limp piece of papery fabric. It was slightly slick, as if there were still product left on it, but after going through the dryer there didn't seem to be an affect on the clothing. The static was always terrible, too, so that didn't appear to work at all. I tried another scent, thinking perhaps I'd bought a bad batch, but I had the same results, just a different scent, which didn't last very long. Performance The cleaning was sufficient, but softening and reducing static didn't happen. Scent The scent was nice before it went through the washer and dryer, but by the time it was over, there wasn't much left. I gave it a five because the clothes didn't stink.
