    Actually it's a dryer error coin because it was a mistake to have left it in the dryer that long just to do the job, i.e., to dry it. Those puffed-up letters are the sure sign of this error. While Downey Fabric Softner in the wash cycle just preceding the dry cycle has been shown to impart a fresh fragrance to the error, it's discouraged by the experts as "AF," or Artificial Fragrance, and usually won't get assigned a grade by the TPGs for it.

    I was thinking something similar but was slow. I was talking to my wife about why my socks smell funny. I was barely able to make it back to the Den.
