Laundry is a nemesis of mine. I feel like I’m always doing it, yet it is never done. I no sooner get it folded and put away when I notice a new pile awaiting me. With three kids six and under, I know this is a battle I’ll be fighting for years to come. While I’ve never liked the process, there was something wonderful about the sweet scent of fresh laundry. I never gave it much thought until my first son was born. As it turned out, he was blessed with sensitive skin. Rashes and irritation led us immediately to give up scented laundry detergent in favor of dye-free, scent-free brands to protect his skin. My laundry was just as clean, but I have to admit I missed the fresh scent of freshly washed sheets and towels these past few years.
Recently I had the opportunity to try something new – Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus Skin-Friendly Fresh Scent laundry detergent. I was intrigued, but a little skeptical. I thought we’d given up scents for good, but if there was a dye-free detergent that would pass the sensitive skin test and give me back that nice fresh laundry smell I wanted to give it a try. I threw in the first load and crossed my fingers. Out came a nice clean load laundry, with a pleasant but not overpowering scent. Two weeks and many loads later I have not noticed any signs of the irritation or itching we experienced with regular scented detergents in the past. I will absolutely be putting this detergent on my shopping list.
Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus detergent is specially formulated to work in both standard and high efficiency (HE) washers. The fragrance was developed and clinically tested to be gentle on sensitive skin. You can get more information at the Arm & Hammer website, and find lots of helpful household tips on the Arm & Hammer Facebook page.
