This detergent has been a Godsend since having both of my sons! Both were born with extremely sensitive skin, and this detergent has been the only one that we can use with no flares of their eczema. I also cloth diaper, and this detergent has yet to cause my diapers to repel or have stink issues. It never causes buildup on clothes, which I had had issues before with other free and clear detergents. PLUS, the price is amazing for the amount you get. Totally the best for anyone with skin issues or cloth diapers,or both!
Refreshingly Scent-Free Laundry
Even though I don't have allergies to regular laundry detergents, I have come to love unscented, clear detergents - organic and/or average. They're versatile, gentler on clothes, and perfect for hand-washing.
As a side purchase with my regular, scented variety laundry detergent, I decided to give **All Free & Clear** a try in the powder instead of liquid form. Inexpensive, concentrated, and handy, this a great buy - it doesn't have any smells, nor traces of odor (like those strange petrol-like fumes I have found many other 'free and clear' detergents to carry), and the powder is easy to scoop, use, and dissolves fairly quickly in the wash water. It's gentle on clothes but really gets rid of stains and odors, which is something I used to have a hard time getting rid of with most other clear detergents. Before, I used to use a touch of bleach to remove sweat and strong body-odors, but **All** cleans even my heaviest loads of laundry and leaves my clothes noticeably softer and fresher, without lingering odors.
Unfortunately, this isn't a detergent that doesn't fade colors, especially darks; in fact, it's pretty harsh on blacks and grays, so avoid using on anything dark as much as possible. It's a great, powerful cleaner that really removes stains and odors, but leaves behind noticeable traces of its power as well. It's perfect for using with whites, though, and this is one of the few detergents I have come across that not only whitens white towels, but also lifts dark, heavy, gritty stains with such a degree of impressiveness, I barely use bleach, if at all (only if the stains are extremely difficult and need a little help here and there).
This is great for hand-washing or using on delicate clothing, instead of buying specific brands of detergent for hand-washing or using on your delicate clothing. A tiny scoop of the powder cleans a small to medium-sized load in a cinch, and I'm always left feeling confident that my clothes not only come out clean, but fresh and beautiful.
If you're looking for a detergent that's suitable for people with allergies and/or sensitive skin, **All** claims that this is the '#1 Dermatologist recommended brand of laundry detergent', so it must be pretty good. And if you are, like me, looking for a refreshing change from overly-scented, dye-infested products or just want a day of scent-free clothes, this is the detergent for you.
