<p>Right now we use free & clear type detergents because of sensitive skin/eczema issues. I want to switch to homemade detergent after this last bottle of commercial stuff is gone, but I don't want to use anything that will irritate us. Any recommendations for good recipes and products that will be okay for my sensitive family?</p>

<p>I always used free and clear but thought I would try the homemade and see how it went. I had no problem at all. I use the basic recipe with the fells naptha. The soap had a scent in the bottle, and when I add it to the washer. But the clothes never smell like it. They just smell clean and scent free. And no skin issues at all.</p>

<p>We have sensitive skin as well and use both the Free & Clear and sometimes homemade soap - three bars of Fels Naptha soap, one box of Borax and two boxes Arms & Hammer can give you 100 loads of laundry.  Add some vinegar to your rinse cycle so that the it keeps the lines in your washing machine clean as well.  A trip that I received from a friend of mine who makes her own and sells it locally. </p>
