Downy Liquid Fabric Softener

Wash new clothes before wearing them

Wash new clothes before you wear them to avoid any negative skin or allergy reactions.

To boost their appearance in stores, clothes and fabrics can have finishes applied that can trigger allergies and sensitive skin reactions. So wash all new clothes before wearing to remove these finishes.

Pour the right amount

Choose the right amount of detergent by reading care tag

Always take care to accurately follow dosage levels on detergent packaging and read garment labels to ensure you’re using the right amount of detergent, correct temperatures/cycles, etc.

Use a gentle detergent

Use perfume free Tide free & gentle detergent during the wash cycle

Some detergents have perfumes and dyes that can irritate sensitive skin or trigger allergic reactions. For a laundry regimen that’s dye and perfume free, wash with Tide® Free & Gentle Detergent to provide a deep clean that’s also gentle on sensitive skin.

Give it an extra rinse

Remove extra residue by trying out the extra rinse setting on your washer

To make sure there isn’t any detergent residue or allergens still lingering in the wash, use your washer’s second or “extra rinse” setting (if it’s equipped with one).

Use dye-free and scent-free fabric conditioner

Use scent free Downy Free & Gentle Liquid Fabric Softener to protect clothes from stretching, fading and fuzz.

Downy® Free & Gentle Fabric Conditioner has no perfumes or dyes, which is great for those with sensitive skin. Downy also softens and protects your clothes from stretching, fading, and fuzz.

Throw in a dryer sheet

Address aggravating allergies or sensitive skin with Downy Dryer Sheets

Finally, drop a Bounce® Free & Gentle Dryer Sheet into the dryer. Free of perfumes and dyes, it also helps to repel pet hair for those with pet hair allergies.
