Using only Dreft or Ivory Snow for washing clothes?
OK, so this friend of mine who works for a high end towel company tells me I should only EVER wash my clothes, sheets, towels, etc with either Dreft or Irovy Snow. Only cold water, no fabric softener, no bleach (ever), and Shout as needed.
First of all, have you priced Dreft liquid detergent? It's super expensive, even at the wholesale clubs like Costco. I use All HP liquid and use cold water for everything except sheets and dish towels. My dog and cat are in bed every night, so I want to use hot water on the sheets, but no bleach. I use fabric softener, and hardly ever use dryer sheets. I use bleach and hot water on my dish towels and the white wash cloths I use for face masks, but wash my clothes and everything else in cold water. She's telling me this is all wrong. I'm not stupid, but I just don't think it's necessary to use Dreft or Ivory Snow for all my washing.
I wonder what everyone else does and what products you use.
