Does drinking water from a fabric softener bottle cause poising?

I reuse bottles often and accidentally drank from a bottle that had once contained diluted fabric softener. I drank almost a liter of filtered water from the bottle in one sitting. I thought the bottle was clean although it smelled of talcum powder (I assumed it was the plastic). Could I be poisoned?

Hi,
No, you will not be poisoned by drinking from this bottle. The worst would be that you may feel a little nauseous.
Regards,
