I have always used the dye-free/perfume-free whatever was recommended for cloth diapers. I recently bought regular detergent (after 5.5 years!!) and had forgotten how much I love the smell of laundry washed in real detergent- lol. And I made my way down the dark road and just bought fabric softener. First load out- so happy.
But it is irking at my crunchy side and I don't remember why. Is it a skin irritant or cancer thing? Do you use dyes/prefumes in detergents and fabric softener?
