Hypoallergenic Fabric Softener
Dryer Sheets, & Other Laundry Supplies Reviews

Those of us with laundry allergies need to use hypoallergenic fabric softener, dryer sheets and other laundry supplies, as well as detergent.

I've compiled a list of the major brands available, along with attaching reviews of any brands that I or other readers have tried, to help you find out which will work best for you.

The reason that using a hypoallergenic product is important is because typically they are scent and dye free, the two main types of ingredients that can cause allergic reactions for many people.

I will caution, however, that some products say they are "hypoallergenic" but they do contain a scent, and when that is the case I note that below, since even these scents can really bother some people.

hypoallergenic fabric softener and dryer sheets reviews

Unlike unscented detergents, there are less of these scent free dryer sheets, softeners and other laundry supplies to choose from. The reason for this is that manufacturers have found that less people are interested in using the products unless they have a scent.

However, I will say as time passes more and more products are coming onto the market as companies realize many people want quality products that don't cause them health problems from extra scents and dyes.

Available Hypoallergenic Fabric Softeners

Here's a list of the fabric softeners available on the market which are designed to be used for people with sensitive skin and/or allergies that I'm aware of. You can click on the image to go to a place to order the product, if you're interested (where available).

Attitude Baby Fabric Softener

attitude baby fabric softener

This softener is made for babies, but should work just as well on anyone else's clothes as well.

It is eco-friendly, and can be used in either regular or high efficiency washing machines.

I don't currently have a review of this product, so if you've used it please share your review here.

Downy Free & Sensitive

downy free fabric softener

Downy is known for all of its scents, but it also has a Ultra fabric softener which is designed without scents or dyes.

Here's a review of Downy Free (from me!)

In addition, you can click here to learn more about Downy fabric softener, in general.

Dropps Fabric Softener Pacs

dropps fabric softener pacs, scent free

Unlike the other fabric softeners which are on this list, which are oil-based, Dropps fabric softener pacs are mineral based and act to soften clothes in a different way than most other liquid fabric softeners.

You can read more about Dropps fabric softener pacs here.

I haven't got a review of this product yet though, so please share your review here, telling me what you thought of this product.

Martha Stewart Clean

martha stewart clean fabric softener

Martha Stewart has come out with an eco-friendly line of cleaning and laundry supplies, which includes a liquid softener which is unscented.

I don't currently have a review of this product, so if you've used it please share your review here.

Purex Sensitive Skin, Natural Elements

purex fabric softener, sensitive skin

Purex actually has three different liquid versions available which are all said to by hypoallergenic fabric softener since none of them contain dyes, but each of them has a fragrance. They are diffficult to find online though.

There are two versions of the "Sensitive Skin" formula, including the Ultra and the Classic. This scent is described by the company as a "light, soothing fragrance." The third type, the Natural Elements version, "contains natural fragrance extracts."

Therefore, I would be careful about these Purex offerings, making sure the scent will not bother you, since scent can be just as much of an allergen as dyes.

I don't currently have a review of this product, so if you've used it please share your review here.

Seventh Generation Free & Clear

seventh generation fabric softener, free & clear scent

Seventh Generation has a free and clear liquid version you can use (along with dryer sheets which I'll discuss more below). Along with being hypoallergenic, it is also eco-friendly, since the softener is plant-based.

This company has a whole line of free and clear products, not just liquid and sheets softeners, so if you need scent and dye free items throughout your house they have a wide selection to choose from. You can learn more about Seventh Generation cleaning products here.

I don't currently have a review of this product, so if you've used it please share your review here.

Snuggle Free Clear

snuggle free & clear liquid fabric softener

Snuggle is a big name in laundry, and it is good to see that they recently released a scent and dye free version of their products. They have both a liquid and sheet version available (I'll discuss the sheets more below). You can learn more about Snuggle fabric softener, in general here.

It is more difficult to find the liquid version, at least online, I've found. Even though it's harder to find I've gotten one review of this softener, which was negative, saying that Snuggle Free & Clear gave a faint rancid odor. I'd be curious to see if others had the same experience!

Sun & Earth Liquid Softener

Sun & Earth fabric softener

I questioned whether to add this brand to this list, since typically Sun & Earth's liquid softener contains a light citrus scent from the essential oils they add to the product.

However, on their website they offer an unscented version, which just does not have the essential oils added to it. I have not seen it for sale anywhere except on the website though.

If you've used this product you can share your review here.

Totally Toddler Nursery Fabric Softener

totally toddler nursery fabric softener

Totally Toddler is a brand made for babies and kids' clothing, but can just as easily be used for adult laundry too.

They make a liquid fabric softener which is both dye and fragrance free.

I haven't received reviews of this product, so you can share your reviews of it with me here.

Available Hypoallergenic Dryer Sheets

Some people don't want to use a softener that must be put into the washer, but instead would rather add the softener and static control agent to the dryer. Or perhaps, you like to do both.

Below is the list of available allergy free and sensitive skin dryer sheets that I'm aware of. I'll confess I've tried more of these myself, since I prefer sheets to liquid!

Attitude Reusable Dryer Sheets

attitude reusable dryer sheets

This is an eco-friendly product, and is a bit unusual compared to some other dryer sheets.

Instead of using the sheet one time and then throwing it away, each of these sheets is reusable, up to 300 times to soften and reduce static cling.

I don't currently have a review of this product, so if you've used it please share your review here.

Bounce Free & Sensitive, Bother Sheets & Bar

bounce free and sensitive dryer sheets

Bounce is one of the biggest brands of dryer sheets, and they have both sheets and a dryer bar which are unscented. You can read more about Bounce dryer sheets here, and Bounce dryer bars here, in general.

bounce dryer bar, free scent

I've personally used these dryer sheets, and I've got a couple of Bounce free and sensitive dryer sheets reviews. They tend to be more expensive than some other brands, but work well.

Some people love the dryer bar, while others don't, so you may want to read the reviews of the way the bar works in general before trying it in your own home.

Grab Green Wet Dryer Sheets

Grab Green wet dryer sheets

I don't have any reviews of this brand, so tell me about them here if you've used them.

Honest Company Dryer Cloths

Seventh Generation Free & Clear

seventh generation fabric softener sheets, free & clear

The Seventh Generation free and clear sheets are both good for those suffering from allergies, but also eco-friendly. They use plant-derived softeners and come on unbleached paper which can be composted after use in your dryer.

Here's a picture review of free and clear Seventh Generation fabric softener sheets.

Snuggle Free Clear

snuggle free & clear dryer sheets

Snuggle's free and clear dryer sheets are much easier to find than their liquid version, but still are hard to find online. They are both scent and dye free.

I've received a couple reviews of these products, including experiencing it myself, and both and another reader experienced allergies to this product. Not good. Here's the Snuggle free and clear reviews here.

Store Brands:

I've got a family member that is not only an allergy sufferer, meaning we've got to use hypoallergenic fabric softener and dryer sheets in our home, but we are also on a tight budget.

I know a lot of my readers are too, so I've tried to add reviews of store brand products which are scent and dye free to share what works well, and doesn't, for more ideas and ways to save money while keeping yourself and your family allergy free.

Kroger Home Sense Brand

Kroger Home Sense dryer sheets, free and delicate scent

Here's my Kroger Home Sense brand review which I thought were OK, but perhaps a little skimpy on the amount of softener on each sheet.

Meijer Jump Brand

Meijer Jump dryer sheets, free and clear scent

I've also tried Meijer Jump brand, and the link has my review of this store brand. Basically I liked them pretty well.

Simplicity Brand

Target Up & Up Brand

Target Up & Up dryer sheets, unscented

I've also personally tried these sheets, and you can read my Target Up & Up dryer sheets review. Overall, they didn't impress me since other generic versions seemed to have more softener contained within the sheets than these did.

Walgreens Brand

walgreens hypoallergenic dryer sheets

I've personally used the Walgreens Brand dryer sheets (click the link for the review), and my impression of them was overall positive. They were much cheaper than the brand name Bounce sheets too!

Walmart Great Value Brand

Finally, I've also personally used the Walmart Great Value Free & Delicate Dryer Sheets (click the link for my review) and loved them.

Sun & Earth Dryer Sheets

Sun & Earth fabric softener sheets, unscented

Along with a liquid softener, this brand also has unscented dryer sheets.

One thing that makes these sheets even more eco-friendly is that they are completely biodegradable, in 21 days.

I don't have a review of this product yet, so if you've used them share your experience with me here.

Totally Toddler Nursery Dryer Sheets And Dryer Balls

Available Hypoallergenic Stain Removers & Bleaches

Here are some of the products available without scent that I'm aware of.

Make Sure You Use Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent As Well

If you're looking for a allergy-free version of other laundry supplies, you obviously need to protect yourself during the entire laundry cycle, not just during part of it.

The best way to do that is to use a hypoallergenic laundry detergent, such as one of the ones I've listed in the linked article.

Just like with this list, I've shared many of the major brands which make an allergy free detergent, and also linked to reviews from myself and others, to share which ones work best.
