Arm & Hammer Liquid Laundry Detergent – Perfume and Dye Free for Sensitive Skin

Pros: hypoallergenic, safe for septic tanks, use in all types of washing machines

Cons: the measuring lines in the cap are invisible to me

My nose is sensitive to perfumes and certain scents.  Sometimes detergents make my skin itch.  Not only that, but my usual laundry detergent for sensitive skin has not been on store shelves.  That is how I came to purchase Arm & Hammer Liquid Perfume and Dye Free for Sensitive Skin.


This Arm & Hammer product is a liquid laundry detergent advertised to clean the “toughest dirt and odors”.  It is manufactured to work in all types of washing machines (front- and top-loading), including High Efficiency (HE) models.  The detergent is dye-free, fragrance-free, bleach-free, phosphate-free, and also hypoallergenic.  Ingredients include: baking soda and biodegradable surfactants.  The liquid comes in a plastic bottle and in various sizes.  For instance:  165 ounces will wash 110 loads — 80 oz. / 51 loads — 50 oz. / 32 loads.  This product is also safe for septic tanks.

My Experiences

Isn’t it just like life to make a product you rely on no longer unavailable for purchase?  I knew I wanted a liquid laundry detergent that was dye-free and unscented; reasonably priced is good too.  A local grocery store had a terrific sale on this Arm & Hammer laundry detergent for sensitive skin.  For the price, I couldn’t go wrong experimenting with it.  After several months of using the product, I’m pleased with the results.

My laundry needs are pretty basic.  I have a top-loading washing machine.  I do full loads of clothes or sheets and towels.  Most of my loads are in cold water.  Any stains or dirt on my clothing tend to be from working in the yard and garden or from baking.  Of course, there are also inadvertent food spills from eating, but those are minimal.  My routine is to start the water running into the machine for a large load.  Then I add the liquid laundry detergent, let it mix for a few moments, and then add the clothes.

I like that the liquid is easy to pour from the bottle into the cap.  However, I can’t find the lines they mention for measuring.  I looked all over the cap, and there are no lines.  I find I don’t need much of this detergent to see suds begin to form in the water.  The suds are not excessive either.  The clothes must rinse clean since I do not find any indication of having added too much detergent.

True to advertising, there is no scent that I can detect.  I wash a variety of clothes: delicates, knits, cottons, jeans, plus the towels and sheets.  I also wash the fabric I use for sewing and quilting (usually 100-percent cotton).  This laundry detergent works great.  My clothes and fabrics come out clean.  I switch the load to the dryer and add an unscented dryer sheet to complete the process.

My nose doesn’t twitch and my skin doesn’t itch.  That is a good sign that the Arm & Hammer laundry detergent is hypoallergenic.


I am pleased with this Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent for Sensitive Skin.  I will keep alert for coupons and sales.  I will definitely buy it again.

Enjoy the day,
