I can remember a time during my childhood when my brother would continually get painful rashes and other skin irritations frequently. It took my parents quite some time to zero in on the culprit. Our laundry detergent. The fragrances and dyes of the detergents were extremely harsh on his sensitive skin.

Sensitive skin sufferers need the right laundry products that provide an outstanding clean yet are mild enough for their skin. Many, however, feel the current products they use require them to sacrifice cleaning power for something that is not irritating.

Tide Pods Free & gentle (1)

Proven to be gentle on skin while providing a deep clean sensitive skin consumers crave, Tide is excited to announce the new Tide Pods Free & Gentle, a detergent free of dyes and perfumes. It is finally here!

With Tide Pods Free & Gentle, you don’t have to sacrifice cleaning performance for gentleness. The detergent offers the best of both worlds in a convenient pre-measured, single use pac.

As a new Mom, I love knowing that I am not wasting detergent when I start each load using the Tide Pods Free & Gentle. It is also an added bonus knowing that the detergent won’t irritate my baby’s skin.

Do you suffer from sensitive skin? Leading Canadian dermatologist, Dr. Sandy Skotnicki, knows that sensitive skin can be painful, irritating and frustrating. Here are her top tips to help soothe and prevent irritable skin:

  1. Avoid fragrances and or botanicals in your daily washing, soaps, detergents and moisturizers, as they can be both irritants and allergens. Test out a detergent like the new Tide Pods Free & Gentle. For people with sensitive skin seeking a detergent free of dyes and perfumes, Tide Pods Free & Gentle provides a deep clean that leaves behind no dyes or perfumes on fabrics, for gentleness on skin.
  2. Stick to non-foaming “soaps” in the shower.  They do not strip the skin of its natural oils.
  3. Only shower or bath once a day. Water dries out the skin.
  4. Make sure that you keep bathing times to under 15 minutes and avoid using hot water.
  5. After bathing, pat dry. Rubbing your body with a towel will remove moisture and further dry out your skin.

    I do all the laundry (well the kids put away their own and bring their own to the laundry room). And I pretty much do it 6 days a week!

    I do the laundry but I don’t have a set day, when there is enough laundry to do more than one load it gets done (BTW, I live in an apartment building with a laundry room on the first floor).

    I do the laundry. Usually Mondays mean linens. Wednesdays – general laundry. And usually a Saturday wash.
    Cheers.
