How Long Have You Been Using This Product: 4-6 months
I have been using this for about 6 months on my down items and I really like that it isn't just something that you have to use in the sink. I have a front loader washer and it doesn't take any longer to run my down through a cycle than any other clothing. I really appreciate that it doesn't have a heavy scent either. A lot of folks have a problem with scents and this will not be a problem at all.

Really nice being able to use a washer for my down instead of hand washing it. Takes the normal amount of time to wash as any other clothes, just add this in. Used on my sleeping bag and jacket, both turned out good as new and with no weird scent.
