J.R.Watkin’s liquid laundry soap — Fragrance Free
Do not use, or use an unscented, natural kind from a natural foods market.
Do not use, not even unscented ones from grocery stores as they are full of chemicals.
Occasionally, one may want to use bleach. Use only the unscented ones as the scented ones do not negate the fact that you are using bleach. One can try Hydrogen Peroxide instead of bleach.
Seventh Generation Free & Clear (unscented) dish soap
Ecover, chamomile & marigold (do not use the lemon scent as it is too strong). One will have to check around for unscented machine dish soaps, as I only wash dishes by hand.
Hand Soap, liquid:
Dr. Bronner’s unscented Baby castile soap
Note: most other unscented soaps will have lots of other chemicals and preservatives in them.
Tom’s of Maine chamomile
Unscented homemade soap from local crafters — make sure the soap is kept separate from the scented ones they offer.
Many brands are available in grocery/drug stores, but these may have masking fragrance or allergenic preservatives.
St. Ive’s Intensive Healing lotion, fragrance- free
Eucerin, Fragrance free
Dessert Essence “Organics”, fragrance- free
Everyday Shea Unscented lotion
365 Fragrance Free lotion
Trader Joe’s: A Midsummer Night’s Creme, unscented with aloe
The most difficult to find. None are available in regular stores. Many in natural food stores are harsh, either because of preservatives or because they have no conditioning ingredients in order to keep product “pure” — in essence, they are pure detergents and one may as well use dish soap or castile soap. At the Whole Foods Market, one can find:
Everyday Shea Unscented shampoo & conditioners
365 Fragrance Free shampoo & conditioner
I use an all natural, preservative free shampoo made for dogs from EarthBath. I use the Mango Tango. It leaves my hair soft and tangle-free. The other ones, with tea tree or eucalyptus are too scented for people with allergies.
Tropiclean hypoallergenic dog/puppy shampoo — truly natural and it cleans!! Made with coconut.
CVS has unscented ones available. Check both men’s & women’s aisles.
The best for cleaning up grease and dirt is:
Seventh Generation Natural All Purpose Cleaner, Free & Clear
(the orange oil ones are truly obnoxious scented and don’t work as well anyway. You can use the Seventh Generation for inside the oven, too. Don’t use conventional oven cleaners. They are truly toxic! and Simple Green doesn’t work well and has some kind of scent, also).
Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner, Free & Clear
Seventh Generation Window cleaner, Free & Clear (for mirrors, or use vinegar)
Bar Keeper’s Friend
Seventh Generation Window Cleaner, Free & Clear
Vinegar, diluted with water
There are many natural unscented ones in natural food stores that do not contain fragrance, but may have some plant extracts. These are ok or use the crystal rock ones.
Natural food stores have some natural ones that are less chemical and less fumy, or just don’t use any.
Natural ones are better as they have no artificial colors or flavors and are less chemical.
Don’t use!! Don’t use hair coloring or spray in hair products as they are all chemical and scented and bad for the environment and bad for the people around you.
Can only be found in natural food stores:
EO unscented hand sanitizer, or use unscented aloe vera and add rubbing alcohol, as that is all it is.
Even Walmart carries unscented, sensitive skin ones, though they have preservatives.
Don’t use!! Air out & clean instead, or put plain baking soda in a bowl and set out.
Don’t use or find some unscented oil one instead or finish your furniture with acrylic finish so it doesn’t need a polish.
Earthbath Mango Tango (does not have fragrance but does have mango extracts)
Tropiclean hypoallergenic dog/puppy shampoo — truly natural, made with coconut.
