We all have one thing in common when it comes to getting our family's laundry done - we want detergents that are tough on stains and work the first time. We want detergents that smell good and detergents that leave our clothes and linens so fresh, we think we are in a field of daisies.

When you have someone in the family with sensitive skin, you want all of the above plus peace of mind that it won't irritate. Too good to be true? 

Last year we talked about the benefits of using the Free & Gentle products on our clothes and linens, to avoid irritating those in the family with more sensitive skin. I really like Tide Free & Gentle because it gets clothes clean, smells great and it's gentle.



Being a fan of Tide Pods, I was happy to hear about the newest addition to the laundry family, Tide Pods Free & Gentle! With Tide Pods Free & Gentle you don't have to compromise cleaning preformance for gentleness. This detergent offers the best of both worlds in a convienient, premeasured one use pack!

Do you or someone in your family suffer from sensitive skin? Leading Canadian dermatologist, Dr. Sandy Skotnicki knows that sensitive skin can be irritating, painful and frustrating. Here are her top tips to help sensitive skin:

- Avoid fragrances or botanicals in your everyday daily washing soaps, detergents and moisturizers as they can be both irritants and allergens. 

- Stick to non-foaming soaps in the shower. They do not strip the skin of natural oils.
- Only shower once a day because water dries out the skin.
- Keep bathing times under 15 minutes and avoid using very hot water as it will dry out your skin.
- When getting out of the shower, pat dry. Rubbing will remove moisture and dry out your skin quicker.

Try new Tide Pods Free and Gentle, the great Tide clean you've grown to love that will leave your clothes looking clean, smelling fresh and not irritating your skin!

  15. Yes I have. I have allergic skin, so I can only use products that are unscented. I have to be very careful about the products I use, I am allergic to all scents/fragrances, plus a lot of the "normal" things that are used to make the products. Tide free is really awesome, its something I can tolerate and something that works. Thanks for the chance. (Andrea Amy)
