Doing laundry isn’t my favorite chore but I love that it gives me some quiet time to think.
So here I am, doing a few loads of laundry using all free clear detergent and I giggled to myself thinking about how sensitive my family is. When I say sensitive I really, really mean it. We are emotional at weddings and other special events and we cry watching sad scenes in movies. Of course my hubby won’t admit that he cries, he always blames it on allergies!
Speaking of allergies, that’s another way we are a sensitive family.
We all have allergies, I have Rosacea and the normal little things that we experience all the time, like a windy day, actually hurt my face. My 12 year old, Noah is also very sensitive. Any little thing can irritate his skin. I can’t tell you how many times he has had an allergic reaction to dyes in clothing, soaps, detergents and even fabric softener. I am very careful with anything that he comes into contact with to try to avoid any other reactions. all free clear has made life with allergies, Rosacea and sensitive skin a whole lot easier. It’s a no brainer!
Our Morning Routine
In the mornings we like to snuggle in bed as a family for a little while before getting up and starting the rush of the day. Now, because of everyone’s sensitive skin we always use a very mild detergent to wash all of our clothes, towels and bedding. One day about a year ago, either I found a new scent that I really liked or something new was on sale. I can’t remember and at the time, our morning snuggles didn’t even cross my mind.
The morning after using the new detergent, the kids climbed into bed with us. They tickled my husband to wake him up and everything seemed normal. They usually do something funny to wake dad up, like tackling him or piling on top of him. However, a few moments later I noticed that Noah was beginning to break out into hives. Within minutes he was itchy and uncomfortable. He had hives and a rash on every part of exposed skin including his face!
The guilt sets in…
It didn’t take me long to realize that it had to be the new detergent that I used the day before. After giving Noah some of his allergy medicine, he was fine a little while later. I was a guilty mess, I felt horrible because the change I made in the detergent caused my boy to have an allergic reaction. I knew at that moment, I couldn’t let it ever happen again.
That’s when all free clear came into our lives.
I went online and did some research and was surprised by just how many different ingredients most laundry detergents contain. I learned that all free clear has only 9 ingredients. That’s less than half the ingredients of Tide Free & Gentle. I found out that all free clear is 100% hypoallergenic. I decided on the spot that I would use all free clear on all of our laundry. Since that day we haven’t had any allergy issues coming from our morning snuggles. We are #FreeToBe a snuggly family thanks to all free clear!
