Let’s talk dirty. Cause this is something that’s making me unbelievably crazy.
This is the detergent I use. Cheer Dye Free, Sensitive Skin detergent. (Come on, what did you really think I was going to talk about?) I’ve been using some form of Cheer forever because every other brand I’ve tried – Tide Free, Sun, Ultra, whatever else is out there – always makes my skin itch, gives me hives and bumps on my body.
It’s highly attractive.
Lately though, even Cheer is causing me to be constantly scratching my back and arms and legs like a mad-woman. I can’t stand it. I’ve switched out the soap I use in the shower, I’ve started wearing unscented lotion. I’m still itching!
The final conclusion I can make is that it’s either my water (which is in all realm of reality probably the problem. Have you smelled the water that comes out of the tap in Kentucky? That’s just nasty. I certainly don’t drink it but unless I’m going to use bottled water to shower, it’s going to have to touch my skin.)
Or the problem is my detergent.
So I’m asking, no begging all of you, to tell me what detergent you use. Does anyone have sensitive skin in your family? Should I go with a more organic/green choice? Will that make a difference?
