I have read a lot here about using detergents that are "free" (like Arm and Hammer, or Purex, etc) but I have a question:
My daughter and I (I also have bad allergies) cannot use Purex Free and Clear. I itch so severely from it and found out recently my step-father also itches from it. So, you can imagine what happened to my 14 year old when I tried it last time-she itched as well and her panties..WOW..needless to say she was super uncomfortable and I had to rewash the entire load in my usual detergent a couple times afterwards. Has anyone else had this problem??
Amazingly, I use Gain Original Fresh detergent without a problem. Between not itching and just a clean smell, it is a Godsend. I cannot use other Gain scents because I can't breathe around them to even try them, plus cannot use the Original Fresh fabric softener because it is too perfumed for me to be around.
