Arm & Hammer Dye and Fragrance-Free Detergent

Arm & Hammer has developed a dye- and fragrance-free version of its Essentials Liquid Laundry detergent for people with sensitive skin. Made from naturally derived surfactants and biodegradable plant-based soaps, the dermatologist-tested detergent also contains no phosphates, bleaches, or petroleum-based cleaners.

This new formulation is more concentrated, which means more value for money and less packaging for the same amount of product.

You can also get Arm & Hammer's Essentials Fabric Softener Sheets that are made from 100 percent plant-based soaps, although we recommend skipping the disposables and making your own. Simply mist a moist washcloth with a dab of liquid fabric softener and toss into the dryer. Adding half a cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle is also said to do the trick. ::Arm & Hammer
