I read an article just last week that had Memphis listed as one of THE worst cities in the U.S to live in if you are an allergy sufferer. Have I mentioned that we have some of THE worst allergies of any household I have ever seen?!?! I can thank my father for that - and I am sharing the love with my kids. We all take allergy medicine year round to keep our allergies at bay - but summertime is coming and everything is in bloom (hello cottonwood), and the Smiths have been a-sneezing.
Surprisingly enough even the smallest allergens can set us off, like perfumes and colors used in laundry detergent. Since my kids were little we have used all free clear detergent to get rid of outside allergens that stick to our clothes but also not set off our allergies just trying to get our clothes clean!
The reason I went with all free clear is simple - it is the #1 brand recommended by allergists, dermatologists, and pediatricians for people with sensitive skin and allergies. I also like it because it is safe to use in my HE washing machine. Like any busy household, our laundry room stays full of, well, dirty clothes. I love using the concentrated laundry detergent because the bottle is small and takes up less room. I was also pleased to learn that all free clear only contains 9 ingredients, and has received the Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association. Yet this detergent packs a powerful punch! With Samantha's soccer practice and games twice a week and both kids playing outside daily at school, my washing machine stays busy and I don't have to worry about allergens lingering in our clothes - period.
