Can I be allergic to my laundry detergent?

Sneezing? Have a itchy red rash? Ever think it could be your new “amazing” detergent you just bought? Or could it be after wearing the clothes you dropped off to a dry cleaners where you are not sure what they used to wash your clothes? Or just some summer allergies? All are possible causes which is why at Todd Layne Cleaners we wash and dry your clothing in our own laundromat on the Upper East side of NYC where you can customize what you want your clothing to be washed with!

Dani Ofsink – Answering your Questions…

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Dani Ofsink and I am a student at Penn State. I work as an Intern on researching topics in the Laundry Industry for Todd Layne Cleaners and helping to increase visibility on the most common questions that people are looking for answers on. My email is at the bottom of this blog if you would like to get in touch.

What to wash my clothes in when I am allergic to my laundry detergent?

I’m sure this is what your search bar in Google said when you were in a panic of how you were now going to wash your clothes. So here are tips to make sure that it never happens again:

  • When choosing your new laundry detergent look at ones free of phosphates and avoid if they have perfumes or dye. One detergent that we use for our clients is Seventh Generation Free and Clear.
  • Clean your washing machine thoroughly, vinegar is what we use, to keep it free of harmful chemicals and ensure there is no residue from the last cycle.
  • Make sure that surfaces are sanitized where you are folding your clothing.
