My husband and I have been using unscented, dye free laundry detergent for our family for a while now.  We used to use the scent and dye free stuff when each of our children were babies because we didn’t want to irritate their young sensitive skin, but then we would always switch back to regular detergent after the kids were about a year old.  But recently my husband was having issues with skin irritation so we made the switch back to a detergent that was friendly to sensitive skin, and did not contain any irritants like dyes or perfumes.  The dye free detergents really aren’t that much different from other detergents, except that they usually don’t have any scent because perfumes are not added like they are in regular detergents.

Over the past couple of weeks I have had the opportunity to try a new line of sensitive skin laundry detergent from Arm & Hammer that was scented!  My husband, who is the one who usually does the laundry and is the one who was having issues with skin irritation said, “this is a nice change compared to our bland/plain unscented.”  He also mentioned that he is always skeptical that scented detergents will cause irritation even if it is for sensitive skin, but he hasn’t had any issues with skin irritation so far using this, and it does a good job cleaning our clothes.  Personally, I like the dye free detergents just because I feel like it is better overall for our family’s health and for the environment.

ABOUT:  The dye-free detergent works on both standard washers and high efficiency (HE) models.  According to Arm & Hammer; the fragrance was designed and clinically tested to be gentle on sensitive skin, and the detergent helps eliminate tough dirt and odors—all with a light, skin-friendly scent that leaves clothes smelling great.
