Ask the expert: Is fabric softener suitable for sensitive skin?

Ask the expert: Is fabric softener suitable for sensitive skin?

Want to learn more about your laundry? At Fairy, we’re here to answer your questions.

The chances are if you’re a fan of soft, scented, clean clothes then you already know what fabric softener is, although you may also have heard of it being referred to as fabric conditioner. Some people even call it fabric enhancer.

Fabric conditioner vs fabric softener

Let’s get one thing out of the way first: fabric softeners, fabric conditioners and fabric enhancers are all the same, and they’re essential to use if you want to get more freshness or softness into your clothes.

Fabric softeners are designed to help your clothes stay looking nice and new for longer, while also making them feel beautifully soft against your skin, as they smooth out the fibres of your clothes. What’s more, they provide your garments with a captivating, fresh scent.

Although fabric softeners will not make your clothes cleaner (that’s what laundry detergents do), they will give you softer, fresher smelling, garments that keep their “new” feeling. Whether you are prone to skin irritation or have a baby in your family, Fairy Fabric Softener should definitely have pride of place in your utility room.

Why should you use fabric softener?

Everyone can use fabric softener, but it’s exceptionally useful for certain people. If you or someone in your family has sensitive or delicate skin - perhaps you have a newborn baby, their skin is particularly delicate - then fabric softener is a great help because it gently softens the fibres of your garments.

Additionally, fabric softeners can make ironing your clothes far faster, because the nature of fabric softener is to straighten out the fibres. This makes the iron glide over clothing really smoothly and quickly.

Some fabric softeners, such as Fairy Non-Bio, are made with super-mild perfumes that contain fewer perfume allergens. This is to minimise the risk of allergic skin reactions. Fairy Fabric Conditioner Original is dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health Alliance and its gentle formula will give you huggably soft clothes with a lovely, gentle scent that really lingers.

When shouldn’t I use fabric softener?

Although fabric softeners are a useful addition to your laundry, they’re not suitable for every situation. Microfibre fabrics, flame-resistant materials (such as your children’s nightclothes) and sweat-absorbing clothes, such as sportswear. Fabric softener is ideal for all other fabrics, especially wool and other delicates, and you really will get wonderful washing results.

How to use fabric softener keep clothes soften

Follow our step-by-step guide to really improve that huggable feeling by using fabric softener on your clothes:

  1. First, always check the fabric care label on your garments to see if they are suitable for fabric softener use.
  2. Next, measure out the correct amount of laundry softener. If you’re not sure about the exact amount to dose, check the product packaging for guidance.
  3. Then, add the fabric softener to the softener dispenser drawer. If your machine doesn’t have one, add the softener during the rinse cycle, preferably by pouring it into a pocket of water, while avoiding direct contact with the clothes.
  4. After the washing cycle is finished, unload the machine and dry your garment. A clothes line or a drying rack is preferable, but your tumble dryer will also do nicely.
  5. Useful tip! Pair up your Fairy Fabric Softener with Fairy Non-Bio laundry detergent for brilliant clean and huggable softness in every load. Fairy Non-Bio is the number #1 voted* laundry brand for sensitive skin and dermatologically accredited by Skin Health Alliance.

So there you have it. Although fabric softeners will not make your clothes cleaner (that’s what laundry detergents do), they will give you softer, fresher smelling, garments
