What happens if I have done all of the steps and I am still reacting to my clothing or linens?
If 1, 2 and 3 are not successful and someone is still reacting, this means they are highly sensitive and no amount of washing is going to stop that person from reacting. Only a very small percentage of people STILL react after going through 3 washes and ongoing washing of their clothing and linens. If you are STILL reacting it is advised to throw them all away and buy new clothes.
