  • I always used regular detergent. If the rest of the house is using regular detergent then there is no need imo. Since you will be holding them against your clothes and on your bed and blankets, using your towels some...If there is skin issues the whole house would be on free and gentle anyway.

  • I used All Free & Clear for the entire family when I had my youngest. He had super sensitive skin and needed something without any harsh dyes or chemicals.

  • I make my own chemical free detergent and use it for the whole family. One batch costs roughly $3-$3.25 to make and lasts 6-8 months!

  • both. I bought some All free detergent, but sometimes I forget its there so I use the detergent I use on all the other laundry.

  • I'm allergic to just about everything and I already use a hypoallergenic detergent so I just use ours. But I do wash her clothes separately because dad works in a factory and I don't want anything on his clothes to get on hers and irritate her.
