My family stopped using liquid fabric softener after seeing a program a couple of years ago (I think it was W5). They reported and demonstrated that clothing that was manufactured flame retardant became highly flammable after only a few washes with liquid softener. Dryer sheets, however, did not have this problem. THey tried the experiment with multiple brands of softeners, and the results were the same: clothes softened with liquid burned, clothes softened with sheets didn't. Scary.
