Would doing the washing twice (with a different detergent) get rid of the original detergent if you have an allergy?

    For skin allergies due to strong detergents, dye, and scent, there are free & clear detergents you can use such as Ecos and Seventh Generation. They are safe for sensitive skin especially for people with eczema, skin asthma, etc. When washing clothes, just dispense enough detergent to clean your clothes. Run the entire cycle then rinse twice. That should take care of the residue that was left on the first rinse cycle.

    Just put it through the rinse cycle again.

    Buy a 'fragrance free' laundry soap, wash normally but switch your washer setting to 2 rinses....also, add some vinegar.

    The main thing is the rinse.I guess the second detergent can't hurt.

    Simply rinse a couple of more times to remove the offending chemicals.
