Ajax laundry detergent reviews

As you might be able to guess from the name, "free and clear," this particular variety of Ajax detergent is designed to not have any scents or added dyes, which are two of the main things that cause allergic reactions to laundry products for many people.

While some people use it without problems, others have reported it still has caused allergic reactions (see some of the reviews below), so be careful and test for yourself before washing a lot of clothes with it, if you are prone to laundry allergies.

Ajax Free & Clear Laundry Detergent Review: Love It!

by SR101 Reader

SR101 Reader says:

I recently started using the hypoallergenic version of this detergent and am very impressed.

I found it at Big Lots for a great price.

It works as well in my HE machine as other more expensive unscented detergents.

Towels and clothes come out fresh and clean, and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

Taylor says:

I've gotten a couple of different reviews of this "hypoallergenic" detergent, where readers have complained about allergic reactions to it.

Here are the ones I've received, below. If you have your own stories about this free and clear version of detergent, either positive or negative, please be sure to tell your own stories in the comments below.

SR101 Reader: I had a BAD reaction!

I usually use Purex Free and Clear, but bought AJAX Free and Clear this time, and have been itching violently ever since.

I didn't realize "why" because I never thought Free & Clear detergent could do this, but it did!!!

Back to Purex!

Sherry: Reaction Even To Free & Clear Version

I have used hypoallergenic or free and clear for as long as I have been able to find them.

In the past, before I could purchase this type of detergent and my children were young, I would wash my clothes separately and then rinse them twice.

I have allergic reactions to the Ajax Free & Clear and to Ajax original.

Hives, itching, swelling of eyes and sinuses if used on my bedding.

Taylor says:

I've found that some hypoallergenic detergents work better than others, not only for washing your clothes, but also for keeping allergic reaction symptoms at bay.

AJAX Free & Clear 2X Ultra vs. HE

by Ric Kelly
(Neenah, WI)

Ric's Question:

We got a 50oz. (32 Load) bottle of Ajax 2X Ultra Free & Clear for top loaders given to us.

Our machine is a Maytag Neptune Front Loader and uses HE Detergents.

Is there a recipe or way to dilute this to use in our front loader? Or, is the whole substance of it different for front loaders?

Taylor's Answer:

Thanks for your question Ric. You've basically asked a question I get asked a lot, which is whether you can use a non-HE detergent in an HE machine.

The answer is that you do so at your own risk. Yes, it could be alright if you just use less, but the chance you run is that too many suds will develop and cause problems in the machine.

I've written an article about high efficiency laundry supplies here, which you should find helpful in explaining the differences between this type of detergent and those used in top-loaders.

Ajax makes an HE version of its detergents now, so if I were you, and because this brand is relatively inexpensive, I would just buy an HE version instead of risking it.

Then, do a good deed and donate the bottle to someone else who is in need. Who doesn't need some detergent? A charity or pet shelter would be very grateful to receive it, it would be put to good use, without you worrying about harming an expensive appliance in your home.

I've answered this question as part of the laundry help section of the site. If you've got your own question to ask, come on over, see what I've already discussed, and ask your own question as well!

Free and clear really smells bad
by: Richard

For free and clear something really smells.

Please make it available
by: Donna S

My entire family has used Ajax for 40 years, it is all I know. I have very sensitive skin and can use the Ajax free and clear without worrying about hives and itching. We miss the the classic unscented Ajax as well. I live in a small town in Georgia, Troup county, and can no longer find this detergent anywhere. When available online at a carrier we order but it is expensive then. We pay 45.00 for 2 bottles. Please start making this widely available and more of it. When it is in a Walgreens or Big lots someone usually buys it all at once and sells it for much more. Please get back to making the Classic and unscented free and clear more often and better available.
