I know a lot of my readers have sensitivities to many chemicals. Personally, I'm noticing gradually-increasing reactions to everything from perfumes to unvacuumed spaces (which REALLY puts me at a disadvantage in my own home...let's just say I will never be known for my housekeeping).
We usually do laundry at my parents' house each weekend when we go over for Sunday brunch (no we're not upity, we just go to church first). We always used scented detergents when I was growing up, but a few months ago my parents found a deal on one of those "free" detergents, without fragrances or dyes. Holy shnikes, is that stuff good. I didn't think it was such a big deal at first, but last week we did laundry with the scented degertent that was on sale this time and I seem to be itchy and sneezing all the time. And, this detergent's called "Mountain Fresh Scent" - I'm not sure what a mountain smells like, but I just keep remembering what bears do in the woods...
And on that note, please, enjoy The Smell of Clean:)
