fabric softener as relaxer?

I,ve read in the past that you can use fabric softener to relax skins but couldn't find any specifics in the archives. I have a couple of coon hides that were dry salted and they don't want to soften up. I know Rittels or Knoblochs relaxers are the way to go but I don't have any right now and the skins have been in the relaxing bath for about 24 hours. (with bactericde) Do ya think some downy would help, and if so how much for a 4 gallon solution. Thanks in advance
