The mild ingredients make this the ideal product for babies and people with allergies and skin conditions. You need just one heaping teaspoon of detergent for each wash so this product will cost you less and last longer than any other on the market. A little bit goes a long way. And there is no need to use fabric softener or softener sheets. This is a laundry soap & fabric softner all-in-one so your clothes come out of the dryer soft, fresh and static free.
