Could be Ariel?

My wife had five pkgs of that laundry soap confiscated at the airport a couple trips ago in PV. Even after years of bringing it home.

A lot of people also use scented Suavitel fabric softener, as well.

It's probably the combo of Ariel soap and Suavitel fabric softener. You can buy it in the US at most Mexican markets- I know most Walmarts have both.

I buy Suavitel and Fabuloso all the time at Target here in the States. The house smells like Mexico all year!

Iyamscifi,

Try your dollar stores, I have often found it there when traveling for business, but I can't remember if I found it in Ohio. I came in small bags, but I didn't need 5 lbs of it:) It should be in a white bag with red and blue lettering.
