Gentle Care For Sensitive Skin {Giveaway} #PGMom


Itchy, scratchy, bumpy skin.  That's what my poor Little One has to deal with whenever her skin gets irritated by certain detergents or fragrances.  She has extremely sensitive skin.  Just like her Dad.  Well, at first glance, you wouldn't be able to tell that about my husband, the farmer.  His hands are super tough and  seem resistant to the elements. The truth is, he has sensitive skin when it comes to laundry detergent and fabric softeners. Both he and our four year old daughter react adversely to certain products, so I have to make sure to buy the gentlest of products. Otherwise they break out in hives.

As a PGMom, I was able to try out Tide Free & Gentle Liquid Detergent, Ultra Downy Free & Sensitive Liquid Softener, and Bounce Free & Sensitive Dryer Sheets.

P&G wants to ensure you can care for your fabrics and enjoy clean, soft and static free clothes and towels, even if your skin is sensitive to scents and dyes. Tide, Downy and Bounce have joined forces to provide a laundry regimen that’s gentle enough for sensitive skin.  


1. Wash: Tide Free & Gentle Liquid Detergent has been specially designed for sensitive skin. It’s made with no dyes or perfumes and is dermatologist tested to provide your fabrics with a great clean that’s gentle on your skin. 

2. Soften: Experience all the softness of Downy, free from dyes, perfumes, and worries. Ultra Downy Free & Sensitive Liquid Softener is the leading “free” fabric softener that’s also 100 per cent dermatologist tested so you can focus on enjoying fabrics that are wonderfully soft with less static and fewer wrinkles. 

3. Protect: Use Bounce Free & Sensitive Dryer Sheets and enjoy the softness and static protection of regular dryer sheets without perfumes or dyes. It’s like sensitive skin’s BFF.                         

So far so good! Hubby and Little One have not had any reactions to any of the products and this makes Mama very, very happy!

Speaking of laundry regimens, I've got a question.  Most of you already know that laundry is one of my least favourite household chores. Well, I don't mind the actual laundry part, but not the folding and putting away clothes part. That is a chore and something I find tedious. 
My question is: What is your laundry regimen? 

Do you actually wash, soften, and protect? How many of you use laundry softeners? I remember my Mom being the perfectionist that she is, always had a laundry regimen. Me? Throw in dirty laundry, add detergent, run cycle, and either hang clothes out to dry on the clothesline or in toss in dryer (I have the Bounce Dryer Bar). 

Though I hate folding and putting away laundry, I do have one little quirk. I'm obsessed with folding underwear a specific way. This is what my poor husband has to live with...



Okay, back to laundry and sensitive skin.

I use Liquid detergent in washer and put the clothes in dryer with bounce sheets in the winter. As soon as the weather get nice out on the clothesline, but i do use softener in washes that I hang outside.

I separate colours/whites as well as heavy items such as towels. Then I add Tide HE (usually pods these days) +/- bleach for whites. For drying, I am a big Bounce sheet user!

I try to do a load every day or two so that I don't get overwhelmed. I put in a load with my detergent and fabric softener and then toss in the dryer when it is done. I'm not too quick when it comes to folding and putting the clothes away :)

I use Liquid Detergent Tide for all my washing. Most clothes I let air dry and the towels, underthings, socks get put in the dryer. I also hand wash all delicates.
Cheers.

I pretty much do a load a day to stay on top of things and try to wash mostly using cold water.

Carrie Butler said...

I always use a liquid laundry soap and if it's towels, I also use liquid fabric softener. I also use bounce sheets in the dryer

Jeannie Lam said...

I separate the laundry, use a liquid laundry detergent this is scent-free since my little guy has sensitive skin and we usually wait until we have 3 piles of laundry all washed and dried before we sit down to a nice show and fold the laundry with my hubby.

We wash our clothes from separate from our sons as he has psoriasis and gets a very bad rash from any type of laundry soap other than allergen free ones! This would be something awesome to win as the only soap we've ever known to be gentle is Baby soft, would be nice to try something different :)

Tanis S said...

I used to use powder detergent, but tried a year or two ago with liquid and I love it! Gain or Tide and some Bounce sheets when we use the dryer!

bwright said...

I use liquid detergent and fabric softener (not with baby clothes). Then in the dryer they go with fabric softener sheets (again, not with the baby clothes).

Haylie said...

My laundry regimen? I stuff the clothes in my washer, I use Purex normally, set it on cold. Then about 2 days later I remember it's in there, so I add more Purex and wash it again. If I'm lucky, I remember it, and put it in the dryer. I normally use liquid store brand softener but am using Bounce dryer sheets currently. Then 2 days later I remember it, put it on to spin again, and eventually it will get in the basket. Then I forget about it until I need ot go dig through it for clean clothes.

MrDisco said...

I pile all the clothes until I run out of things to wear. Then I take them to the laundromat in a frenzied panic.

Stephanie Gossett said...

I use a dye free detergent and borax, and follow it with vinegar fabric softener. :)

We use liquid laundry detergent in the washer. We try to hang a lot of clothes on our indoor clothes dryer. But we do dry some clothes in the dryer also. Which we have dryer balls in the dryer to help with the static.

Belinda M said...

We do our laundry on Sunday because we are too busy to get it done during the week. Nothing special, laundry detergent and I can't live without my unstoppables because they make everything smell so nice. After it is all dry I fold and hang up clothes. I avoid ironing as much as possible

Lori Butler said...

I don't really have a really planned order. I wash everything warm with detergent except for whites and diapers.

Jonnie (JB) said...

I start on Monday morning doing a load and then forget to move it into the dryer so Tuesday I wash it again and this goes on all week until Saturday when I'm stuck doing 7-10 loads to catch up. Sunday is my no laundry day and then the routine starts again on Monday.
