if you add 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle, that will help eliminate any soap residue left in the clothes, and you won't need any fabric softener/or those toxic fabric softener sheets which can also irritate skin and lungs.
edited to add.. White distilled vinegar is really cheap. Any brand will do.
You can also use a diluted solution to wash windows, floors, clean everything in the bathroom including hard water stains, kitchen cleaning etc.
If you need a non toxic oven cleaning solution, let me know and i'll post it.
I have asthma, and since I've been using vinegar for my laundry I haven't had any problems with clothes making me itchy.
and when I clean.. I can actually breathe..
