    Yes my friend, Water softeners are oily and when the perfume has gone, you are left with a gloopy mess. ( just have a look at the state of your softener drawer) The enzymes react with stale water, and you are left with a foul smell down your drain. Might I suggest you use Lenor, instead of Comfort, as it uses less oil, and leaves less residue than Comfort, and any cheap brands of softener.

    Sorry, I didn’t read your question properly, and have blabbed on about something totally different. (silly me) I don’t have a water softening system, so I won’t add any more!!!!

    Most sewer smells from drains come from a problem with the trap not being filled with water (trap being the U shaped pipe under the sink) if the trap is not filled with water sewer gas will make it’s way into the room. Check for leaks under the sink

    I don’t think so. I just put baking soda and vinegar down them once in a while to get rid of smelly drains.
