Laundry detergents that are free of fragrances and dyes should be recommended to patients with sensitive skin. To ensure mildness of these products, manufacturers typically conduct patch testing. A new method, which is more discerning than patch testing, called Detergent Mildness Index (DMI), has been described previously. Using the DMI method, 12 sensitive skin/baby laundry detergents, representing the top 85% of the marketplace, were evaluated. The product "all Free Clear®" was found to be the mildest liquid laundry detergent.
