The market demand for fabric softener is steady because they are used in large quantities every day, and you can supply hotels with this consumable product.
Word-of-mouth is the best marketing strategy for your products, so let the product speak for itself by giving trial packs to your potential clients. You can also give trial packs as gifts to friends, neighbors, and relatives, whom you can then ask for referrals.
The strongest selling point for your products, of course, is the fact that they are not only of high quality but are also cheaper than their commercial counterparts.
