Laundries, as a rule, use various detergents to help wash textiles. These detergents can vary:
- by the active ingredients – ones that help with the actual cleaning process,
- by additives – some of which are added because of certain functional purpose, e.g. longer shelf life,
- some fill purely aesthetic functions, like fragrances, aromas, etc.
Quite often the latter are responsible for allergic reactions and skin irritations,especially for children and more sensitive adults.
