Alice has shared her Cheer Free and Gentle detergent review.
I use Cheer Free and Gentle. This is a regular liquid detergent that is scent-free.
I purchased this product because I have chemical allergies and needed an odorless detergent.
Cheer has not disappointed me. I did not have any skin allergies from this detergent, in contrast to other detergents I have used in the past.
Despite its gentleness on my skin, Cheer was tough on dirt. There was a chocolate stain on a pair of work khakis that I could not get out previously, despite many washes. However, when I switched to this brand, the stain came out after a few washings and I can now wear these pants to work. The detergent did not leave any residue on my pants, and in fact they look better than ever.
Usually, I worry about wear and tear from washing clothes too often, but not from Cheer Free and Gentle. I will definitely be buying it again!
Thanks Alice for your Cheer Free and Gentle liquid detergent review.
I changed to Cheer Free and Gentle soap about 6 months ago. This soap is gentle. My oldest son's sensitive skin no longer breaks out. He no longer has rashes from laundry soap.
I am forced to use powder soap as no one will measure liquid soaps. I am always concerned about using powder soaps. I try to save money and use only cold water. I have found that Cheer always dissolves regardless of the water temperature. I no longer have to use hot water to wash with.
Our clothes are clean and fresh each and every time that I wash them. It does not matter the load size or whether or not I separate the colors, everything comes out clean.
I am now a faithful, long term user of Cheer Free and Gentle Soap.
Muffet, thanks for your review of this Cheer detergent.
Why Can't I Find Cheer Free & Gentle Powder Anymore In Stores?
Cheer Free & Gentle Powder Has Been Discontinued
Minnie has shared her problem finding the hypoallergenic version of this detergent.
I have used this version of the powder detergent for years. I prefer the powder because it lasts longer.
I usually buy 3 or 4 boxes at a time because for the last few years, fewer places are carrying it. Now I can't find it anywhere in town.
I've checked online and see that Amazon.com and a couple of others say that it is "unavailable." I found this site looking around for a source to purchase it and thought I'd ask the question here--does anyone know why it is not being sold?
I know it's not because it's not recognized as a great product.
Thanks for writing in Minnie. I did some research to find out why you could't find the powdered version of the free and gentle detergent, and found out that Cheer has discontinued it.
Instead, they only offer the free and gentle detergent in the liquid version now, in regular and HE now.
I obviously don't know Procter & Gamble's reasoning for discontinuing the powdered version, but I will note that recently Cheer went through a large rebranding and I noted that some of the other scents and varieties were axed at the same time. There are now just a few scents and varieties available, so it wasn't just the powdered version that got the boot.
Kitty has shared her review of the scent free version of this detergent.
I am 64 and have had skin allergies to soaps, conditioners, lotions and some cosmetics since my early 20s.
After years of going from one to another I found Cheer. It did not make me itch immediately and I could use it for several months before needing to switch.
Then, they came out with Cheer FREE and it NEVER makes me itch. I use it all the time.
I have tried other "Free" types and I still cannot use them.
My only problem with Cheer is that it is becoming harder to find in stores.
As for its cleaning power, I have 2 sons who have grown up on Cheer. It cleaned up after football, baseball, soccer and many other kids clothes problems. We are a CHEER family.
Thanks so much for sharing your review of this product.
A lot of people have commented to me recently that it is becoming more difficult to find it on store shelves. I know that is true of the powdered Free & Gentle version, since it has been discontinued. However, as far as I know, you should still be able to find the liquid version since it is still on the market.
