Get the Scoop: Scented vs. Unscented Laundry Soap
Is there anything nicer than freshly laundered clothes? That smell, that feeling of cleanliness… But have you ever stopped to think about what’s in your laundry soap? Do you choose scented or unscented? What are the differences between them, and which is better for you and your family? Let’s take a look.
Scented Laundry Soap
Scented laundry soaps can come in many forms, from liquid to powder and pods. These soaps contain fragrances designed to give your clothes a pleasant scent after being washed. The fragrances can range from floral scents to strong and musky smells.
Of course, with these scents come added chemicals meant to keep the fragrance lasting longer. Some people may find this helpful because it keeps their clothes smelling fresh for longer, but others may not like adding extra chemicals to their washload.
Unscented Laundry Soap
Unscented laundry soap is exactly as it sounds – without added fragrances or chemicals. This type of soap may be beneficial for people with allergies or sensitivities to particular fragrances or ingredients found in other types of laundry soap.
Unscented products are usually made with gentler formulas containing fewer harsh chemicals, making them an excellent choice for sensitive skin. They also don’t leave any lingering odors on clothing, which some people prefer over heavily scented products.
Whether you choose scented or unscented laundry soap, plenty of options are available for keeping your clothes clean and fresh-smelling. If you’re looking for something gentle on the skin but still effective at cleaning, unscented laundry soaps can be a great option; however, if you prefer something with a little bit more fragrance, then scented products might be more suitable for you and your family's needs. Whatever option you choose will depend on your personal preferences – just read the labels carefully before purchasing! Visit your local WaveMAX Laundry for more great laundry tips.
