The smell is fabulous and with the oxygen bleach added it makes them sparkle.
In the past, when I was using other detergents, I would always use dryer sheets because the other detergents didn't smell as good once they were done washing, but with All Oxi Active I don't need to use dryer sheets because the freshness lasts.
I thought I would dislike this product because of it being for the HE it's more expensive, but I think its totally worth the few extra bucks.
Thanks Stacey for your All Oxi Active laundry detergent review.
Laundry detergent allergies can be very difficult to predict or explain sometimes, since something that causes one person to break out may not cause someone else any trouble at all.
If you would like to continue using an ALL product, you may want to try All Free and Clear, which is a scent and dye free version. ***Update - Make sure you get the original All Free & Clear if you want to still use a hypoallergenic version of this detergent. I have also gotten several reviews of All Free & Clear Oxi Active, and the version with the Oxi additive still seems to cause allergic reactions, although the original version without this additive does not.***
A SR101 reader shared her experience with this laundry detergent, and asked me a question.
SR101 Reader says:
My first time using ALL Oxi and I had a BAD skin rash only on the clothes area. Can it be an allergy from it?
I love the smell and the clean clothing, but scared to use it again. :(
I am not a doctor, so I can't diagnose a laundry detergent allergy for sure, but it sure does sound like one.
This is especially true since your rash only appeared where clothes were touching your skin, indicating that it was something on the clothes causing the problem.
As you can see from several other reviews on this page many readers have written in to complain about allergic reactions with this detergent, in both the scented and unscented versions.
I understand not wanting to waste the detergent, but it really isn't worth using if it causes health problems for you. I'd unfortunately suggest getting a new detergent.
In addition, all the items you washed with this detergent will need to be washed multiple times to get the lingering allergens out of the fabric so you can wear them again. It may take several washes, and I suggest adding either distilled white vinegar or baking soda (choose one or the other, not both) to the rinse cycle to help remove excess detergent from the clothing.

Alexandrea shared her experience with this laundry detergent with me.
I bought All Oxi Acive 2 in 1 and I am sad to say that I HATE THE PRODUCT!
First, I have never been allergic to anything in my entire life and first time I used this it went well. I was okay after 3 days of using it, and then I broke out into hives everywhere and am itchy, and it seems like when I take a shower and dry off they go away but as soon as I put my clothes on about 1 hour or less later there are hives everywhere.
I will never buy this product again. We bought it to help with the stains in my husbands work clothes. Guess we will be buying him new work clothes and sticking to our old detergent. =(
Sad to say my doctor recommended Benadyrl, lots of non fragant lotion and warm showers and oatmeal baths.
Also I have had hives now, going on my 4th day. =(
Alexandrea, I'm sorry to hear you've had this reaction to this detergent. I have gotten so many complaints about it though (in both the scented, like you used, and the non-scented version) I am guessing something about the Oxi ingredient is causing the problem for people.
Hope you feel better soon!
