  • We use Sun or ALL Clear... And love both. If you're having a reaction I would suggest All Clear or another "clear" version. They have no extra dies or fragrances which you could have a reaction to...

  • We use PUREX and have for yrs.. It's cheap, but we've never had an issue w/ rashes from it :)

  • Purex seems to be a love it or hate it thing. We tried it a few times because so many people recommended it, but ever time I wore clothing washed in Purex I ended up with a yeast infection and my boys both ended up with skin rashes. So I gave the remainder to my mother and she had similar reactions.

    If you are worried about reactions, why not check out some of the websites and see if you can get free samples of a few of them, that way you could try them before you buy them. If that doesn't work, go to the laundry mat. they always have those machines with single use boxes of soap. Although they are more expensive that way, it would let you try one load and see how you react.

  • We use (and actually sell ourselves---but that's not why I am saying this....) Amway's SA8. It is concentrated (you use less), it is green and it is the best thing I've ever used. (I am 45 now. lol) You do however have to purchase it through an independent business owner. If you would like to try some you can contact me here at CafeMom or go to my husband's website
