I use Arm and Hammer for sensitive skin since I have eczema.
Dernatologist said to use Dreft but it's expensive and I didn't see any difference. I have tried everything for eczema and nothing works. I stay away from scents and really like Aqua Phor cream.

So how would you use vinegar in the dryer? Do you pour a certain amount into it? If so, how much?

I use Charlie's Soap. One little tablespoon scoop per load. It washes out very clean and does not cause any skin trouble for DH. It works great in my high efficiency front loader

We use Kirkland HE. Used to always use Tide but the HE really bothers my skin. We don't use dyer sheets anymore either. We just have the balls in the dryer.

Use it in place of fabric softener in the wash. Works very well.

Recipe for HomeMade Soap

1/2 c. Borax
1 c. Arm & Hammer Washing Soda

Sorry, I've missed something and will have to check with my daughter about my missing instruction. Later . . . . I promise.

We have used only Melaleuca laundry products for 25 years or so. We love them and save so much money!

I make my own laundry detergent and now all my friends do as well after trying mine. It's 100 times cheaper, cleans better and no one ever has reactions to the chems that are in "store bought" detergents.

Fels Naptha Soap
Borax
Arm & Hammer Washing Soda

I also have eczema. About 25 years ago, I started using Amway SA8. No more raw bleeding skin!!! Love it!! I also use their bar soap to shower.
