For Sensitive Skin, use Dye & Perfume-Free detergents
I've been using Tide my entire life, so when I heard they had a perfume and dye-free detergent called, Tide Free, I knew I had to try this. I recently got a new washing machine because it just broke one day- so it's one of those energy efficient ones and with lots of buttons to press. I have more choices now basically and I can finally use these other products that are out in the market!
I was recently sent the above products to try, which were featured in beauty expert's Rebekah George's video on winter skincare beauty tips. My skin is more sensitive in the winter so it's definitely important to make sure your clothes, which are basically touching your skin 24/7, are not irritating your skin.
Learn more about the products featured..
Tide Free & Gentle Liquid Laundry Detergent- is by far the most used of the products here. This gently cleans my clothes as well as expected and the scent just smells fresh. Nothing artificial or strong that I can tell if I use too much of my detergent. It's works great and cleans my clothes just as well as my other Tide detergents without the perfume scent.
Tide Stain Release Free In-Wash Booster- I have never used one of these before, so I was quite excited to try these. The clothes I used had several stains from spilled juice (purposely, of course), some dirt/mud on my jeans, but nothing drastic. I used this in my wash and my clothes looked good as new. Yay!
Bounce Sheets- The same non-"scent" as the Tide Free& Gentle detergent, these bounce sheets kept my clothes nice and static-free. It does the same job without its regular smell.
Downy Free & Sensitive Fabric Softener- Like the stain booster, I have never used fabric softeners before, mostly because I never had a need to make my clothes feel softer. But I have tried this several times already with my fleece blankets and sheets and immediately felt a noticeable difference. Its plushness is back and there is no strong scent lingering around.
Overall, these products that are free of perfume and dyes are perfect with those who have sensitive skin and also sensitive noses! Sometimes my nose gets itchy from smelling all this and they work just as well without the additional smell. So do your skin & noses a favor this winter and pick up one of these Free & Sensitive products!!
(Thanks to Tide's PR for letting me try this!)
