Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin + Skin-Friendly Scent Laundry Detergent Review

Arm & Hammer


Maybe it’s just me but I hate laundry.  I don’t mind the task so much as the fact that it’s never, ever, ending.  Because this is a task that I’ll do over and over again for the rest of my life I want to use products and machines that make this job as easy as possible.  As a busy mom I don’t have time to soak, wash, and repeat.  I want a dependable and quiet washing machine that gets the job done and I want a detergent that gets stains out the first time.


When I first married I soon learned that my husband has very sensitive skin and could only use one brand of detergent.  That brand got the job done but unfortunately it’s one of the more expensive brands and often I had to soak stains before I washed them.  When Mom Central contacted me about doing a review for Arm & Hammer laundry detergent I immediately thought there was no way that I could do it without writing a negative review because I was sure it would make my husband’s skin react.  Then I noticed that it was for Arm & Hammer’s new Sensitive Skin Plus Skin-Friendly Fresh Scent laundry detergent.  Yes!  Finally a brand that I love has made a laundry detergent perfect for my family.


I was still nervous that it wouldn’t be sensitive enough but I gave it a try anyway.  I made sure not to tell my husband that I was switching so that it wouldn’t be in his head and would be a fair review.  One day went by, two went by, and I hadn’t heard a thing.  Then one morning he asked me if I did something different to the laundry.  I gasped.  I was nervous!  Immediately I felt a wave of guilt rush over me for making my husband become a guinea pig for my little experiment.  They he said, “It smells better!”  I breathed a huge sigh of relief!  Success!  I proudly revealed my new bottle of Arm & Hammer laundry detergent and apologized for making him an unknowing test subject.


We’ve used Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus Skin-Friendly Fresh Scent laundry detergent for two weeks now and I’ll be honest, I love it!  I think it’s better at getting stains out, it has a light fresh scent my husband loves, and it’s an affordable detergent.  I would recommend it to anyone!  Plus, Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus Fresh Scent laundry detergent is specially formulated to work with both standard and high efficiency (HE) washers.  You can get additional information at the Arm & Hammer website and you can keep up with them on the Arm & Hammer Facebook page.

Beauty Tips from Arm & Hammer

Arm and Hammer Beauty TipsWhen I think of uses for Arm & Hammer baking soda I usually only think of two things, a box sitting in my fridge to deodorizing it and chocolate chip cookies.  When Mom Central asked if I would like to join their Arm & Hammer blog tour I was overwhelmingly excited!  If you know me, you know that I love to find new uses for every day products and I never knew that there are so many uses for baking soda.  I am going to share with you what I have learned and I think you will find a new love for baking soda too!

Uses I already knew that baking soda was great for:

  • Treatment for insect bites

Make a paste of baking soda and water and apply this natural salve to the affected area.

  • Cleaning hair brushes

Remove natural oil build-up and hair product residue by soaking hair brushes in a mixture 1 tbs of baking soda in a small sink full of warm water.  Rinse and allow to dry.

  • Natural soft scrub

I learned this mixture when I was pregnant and afraid of the harmful fumes of regular products.  For light cleaning, sprinkle water and baking soda and scrub with a damp sponge.  For extra cleaning umph make a paste of baking soda, coarse salt, and dish liquid soap.  Let the mixture set on your dirty surface for a few minutes then scour off.

  • Natural deodorant

Sprinkle baking soda under arms to absorb odors and feel fresh.

Beauty treatment ideas for baking soda:

  • Facial glow

Mix 3 parts baking soda with 1 part water (1 part oatmeal is optional).  Cleanse skin as usual followed by this gentle scrub.  As with all scrubs be sure to avoid the eye area.  Rinse with warm water.

  • Brightening manicure

Dip brush in baking soda and scrub nails and cuticles.  Make a paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water.  Rub in a gentle circular motion over hands and fingers to exfoliate and relax.  Rinse clean with warm water and apply polish as usual.

  • Pedicure foot soak

Dissolve 3 tbs of baking soda in a basin of warm water and soak feet (a drop or two of lavender or your sent of choice is nice too).  Gently scrub tired feet with a paste of baking soda, water, and brown sugar for smooth feet.  Towel dry and apply a rich moisturizer and cotton socks for ultimate softness.

  • Soothing bath soak

For a relaxing bath experience, add 1/2 cup of baking soda to your bath.  This will neutralize acids on your skin and help wash away oil and perspiration.  You will feel refreshed and your skin will feel silky smooth.


I have to tell you that Arm & Hammer gave me a very nice gift basket!  It came with a box of Arm & Hammer, a shaker of Arm & Hammer, a glass tea cup, tea, a manicure set, nail polish, a head band, soft wash cloth, and a few other little goodies.  I loved trying out the foot soak and manicure for myself!


My husband will tell you that I adore and need beauty products…they are what I like to call “pamper me products.”  They aren’t items that are needed to get ready each morning but they are things that make me feel good about myself.  I can’t go to the spa everyday, I choose not to spend money on manicures and pedicures but I like to feel good about the way I look.  I’m not alone, am I?  The time I spend taking a long bubble bath gives me the renewed energy and enthusiasm I need to keep up with life’s daily tasks.  I am happy to now have a nice pamper-me-product without a large price tag.
