Severe Allergic Reaction To Suavitel Liquid
by Tim Muster
Several readers have experienced allergies to Suavitel fabric softener, and below they've shared their stories.
I broke out in the worst case of hives after my girlfriend washed our clothes and blankets in this product.
I continue to be covered everyday by these hives because we cannot get the softener out of our clothing and blankets.
I am literally covered from head to toe in these hives.
My palms and the bottom of my feet get covered, my face, arms and throat swell really bad.
I've been to the hospital several times for allergy shots (steroids) and have spent over a hundred dollars on medication for this.
We have re-washed everything at least five times to try and get this stuff out. NO LUCK!!!
We're gonna have to throw all of our clothes, sheets and blankets away so I won't continue to break out in these hives. They make me very ill and the medication for them is no better.
Very bad side effects!!! THE WORST CASE OF HIVES EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tim, I'm sorry to hear this. I do hope you feel better soon.
It can be difficult to completely remove the smell and lingering effects of liquid fabric softener from fabrics, because the oils coat everything so thoroughly.
Has anyone else had an allergic reaction from this product? If so, was it the liquid or dryer sheets version, and what scent were you using? You can share your review or experience here

Suavitel Fabric Softener Caused Hives And Now I Can't Wash It Out
I have a terrible case of hives from this fabric softener and can't get it out of my clothing.
Anyone know what I can do to wash it out?
We have tried rewashing our clothes numerous times and it's not working.
My hives are out of control.
Debra, sorry to hear about this.
You're not the first person to complain either about an allergic reaction, or to share the difficulties in removing the product's scent from your clothes. (see above)
Unfortunately, the only advice I have is to keep rewashing. I would suggest washing in the hottest water possible, along with a heavy-duty laundry detergent that is tough on grease and oils, perhaps Wisk
You may even want to let the clothing soak in the hot water for a while.
These softeners are made with oils, which coat the fabric's fibers, and heat is a good way to dissolve such oils, and then have a detergent that grabs it away before it redeposits.
You may also want to try extra rinses.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?
