for me, it's the fragrance that is a problem. so i buy any generic for the price and making sure it doesn't have a fragrance.

Since the day my daughter was born - years and years ago- Ive been using ALL FREE for just her clothes, blankets and sheets- basically anything that was going to be in contact with her.. I still use it today.. never found a reason to change it..

I use Gain, Era or Tide for hubby and I..

And we all use downy..

I was very disappointed that they have added some scent to the Arm & Hammer...hello! What do they think the irritating part is anyway! I can still find some of the unscented locally. When I can't find it, I use other unscented soaps. I also use the Downy softner that is free of dyes/purfumes.

Side note...I also had eczema really bad...my skin was so dry it would crack and bleed. None of the prescription meds helped. My BIL saw an ad for a product called Freederm and I tried it. On their website, it looks too good to be true, but I figured for the small amount of money to try it it was worth a shot. It worked for me! There was a noticeable difference in just a couple of days. I use it 2x a day and I very rarely have a problem with it now. I've been using it for several years now. Not affiliated, just a very satisfied customer...the website is http://www.freederm.com/

I've been making my own soap & softener. I also ran across a blog where she used a tin foil ball in the dryer instead of softener. I may try that. One of my girls gets sensitive to laundry soap..she hasn't had an issue with my homemade stuff.

I had to use Dreft and Ivory for my daughter because she would break out with anything else (heavens -- that was over 35 years ago). Now she and we use the Kirkland HE liquid that has no scent.

We use Ivory Snow. Soft enough for babies (even better than Dreft!)

Love it.

I'm so allergic to Tide it's not even funny. It's so bad I can't even walk down the aisle without itching.
