A lot goes into choosing the right detergent or cleaning product for your life. At the end of the day, everyone wants a product that makes them feel good about how they are cleaning. One consideration is choosing which scent you’d like to enjoy when cleaning or choosing a product without a scent at all.
Why would you choose a product without scent? For those with sensitive skin, fragrance-free detergents offer relief from symptoms without sacrificing cleaning power. And if you or a loved one has allergies, hypoallergenic fragrance-free detergents are also formulated to remove seasonal allergens like pet dander and pollen from clothes, cutting down on allergy triggers after every wash.
To make sure you are getting what you want, make sure to read the label. Fragrance-free means that fragrance materials or masking scents are not used in the product. SaferChoice has a fragrance-free certification label that can help make this clear, and lets you know that the ingredients used in the product have been deemed safer for health and the environment by the EPA. This can be a good option for life’s messes when cleaning around kids, pets and food. You can also choose unscented, which does not have fragrance but could contain chemicals that neutralize or mask the odors of other ingredients.
The good news is that whether scented, unscented or fragrance-free, there are options available for cleaning up, tackling stains, and keeping you and your loved ones safe and comfortable.
