|Itchy Boy's first time in a bouncy castle, er, train.|
I've been really cautious with Linnaeus' clothes since then, only using VIP Hypoallergenic detergent, which doesn't bother him. Recently I thought I'd toss in a few items of his with a load of my & the baby's clothes that I washed with a Seventh Generation liquid detergent I got free ages ago. I like it because it's liquid & never leaves a residue on dark clothes. The packaging is partly recyclable & partly biodegradable.
Cue the itching & rashes. I didn't realize it was probably from his clothes until today. Poor boy has been scratching away at his legs & now his tummy for a few days. It's not anywhere he's gotten any sun & it's too spread out to be a bug bite. I'm hoping a bath with some baking soda & maybe a little calamine on it after will take care of the rash.
Trouble is, I can't remember which of his clothes I washed with the other detergent. Sigh. Into the machine all his clothes go, on the super wash cycle plus extra rinses. Just what I needed: more laundry to do.
Have you or your kids had issues with laundry detergent causing skin reactions?
