allergy detergent

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Has anyone used the All detergent, the one that reduces allergies? I saw that in the store and wondered if it actually made a difference.

I use the All free clear too. I don't know about lessening allergies but it's not scented so it certainly helps if you're bothered by perfumy smells.

I use it & swear by it! It's awesome for my eczema....there are no dyes, no heavy fragrances, all things that irritate any allergies, be it nasal allergies or skin allergies.... it also has a allergen reducer in it. So when you wash your clothes, it gets rid of pet dander & other allergens that could be on your fabrics. My dermatologist suggested it, and I have to say, it really works. Plus, you can get the big giant BJ's size container on sale for $13 sometimes....and I always have a $1 off coupon!

i bought it when it first came out but my DH didn't like it. he said it didn't get his clothes clean. we use Method Free & Clear instead. neither make me itch. tide free does bother my skin. DH likes the Method detergent. (he does the laundry )

Well i saw it for the first time and I was thinking about my Isis who has asthma and the blankets and towels and all that that I wash a LOT.
And I have 6 birds and the dander is just overwhelming.

So what kind of fabric sheet do you use with it? I was in such a hurry, i didnt' check if they had one?

we don't use dryer sheets or fabric softener. but method makes free & clear dryer sheets (unscented) if you like to use them. i also like the method detergent because it's good for the environment.

i think for asthma issues either Method or All Free would be fine.

I had skin allergies awhile back. The dermatoligist recommended ABC, Ivory or Arm&Hammer, as these had the least amounts of irritants. I used ABC liquid for a long time and really liked it until they recently took the liquid off the market. The powder is still on the shelves, but it didn't rinse out as well I found.
I recently switched to Sunlight scent and dye free (and sometimes Purex which is the same). So far, so good.
Tide is supposedly on of the worst.
The doctor told me certain soaps were bad in the shower. Any type of deoderant soap is bad (Irish Spring, Lever2000). He recommended Dove, and I like that too.
Dryer sheets are bad too. If you have to use them, go with unscented.
Creams should also be unscented.
I haven't seen All yet. I'll take a look next time.

I really noticed a difference switching all my products to what he suggested and my skin hasn't trouble me since. (I had big pale patches on my upper arms and thighs, caused by irritated skin that was growing too fast and not picking up enough pigment as it grew outward).

Me and my cousin have eczema, and it really does work great!
