In addition to my little diva, I also have a 4 year old boy,a teenage boy, and a husband who is the service manager at an automotive repair facility. Obviously, I do a lot of laundry. A lot.
When it comes to our laundry routine, I try and avoid things like artificial dyes and fragrances. This is especially important since my daughter has fairly sensitive skin and tends to break out and get itchy when she experiences a chemical overload. So when choosing laundry detergents and softeners for my family, I look for products that are gentle enough for the most sensitive skin without sacrificing performance.
Another interesting fact? A whopping 87% of free detergent consumers use scented fabric softener/dryer sheets, which can cause irritation. This is incredibly counter-productive. Using scented fabric softeners full of chemical fragrance and dyes kind of nullifies the free detergent. So if you or someone in your household has skin sensitivities, it's really a good idea to follow a completely dye and perfume free laundry regiment. This will help your clothing look great and spare you any skin irritation, too.
Here's the low-down on this line-up:
o Tide Free & Gentle Detergent / Tide Stain Release Free In-Wash Booster
Mild on skin as the leading free detergent, cleans better, and removes more residue from stains.
o Downy Free & Gentle Fabric Softener
Provides outstanding comfort and freshness through its softening formula while remaining mild on skin.
o Bounce Free & Gentle Dryer Sheets
Provides freshness, softness, static control and even repels pet hair while maintaining a mild formula for ones skin
The Tide Pods are so easy and convenient to use. Just pop one in the wash and let it work its magic on even the toughest of stains. I'm a little weird when it comes to fabric softener....Rather than using a liquid or a dryer sheet, I often use both. What can I say? I like really soft fabrics. After all, our clothing is our second skin!
Overall, I couldn't be any happier with P&G's Free & Gentle line of laundry products. They are gentle on even the most sensitive skin, yet they harness the cleaning power that their respective brands are so well known for. Well done, P&G! You've definitely got a houseful of fans here in Ohio!
