What can cause greasy marks on items that have been dried?

Sometimes fabric softener sheets added to the dryer can cause a greasy mark on fabrics.

For best results, follow these suggestions:

Place the fabric softener sheet on top of the load at the start of the cycle.

Do not add a softener sheet to a warm load.

Discard the softener sheet after each cycle.

Do not use fabric softener on children's sleepwear or other garments labeled flame resistant—it may reduce flame resistance.

To remove any fabric softener stains, rub them with bar soap and rewash them in warm water.
