Read Transcript

Fabric softener can help alleviate dry skin because when your clothing is not treated with fabric softener and it has static cling when you wear it, it can cause friction on the skin. Now that friction can irritate the skin, chafe the skin and that leads to itching, dryness and sometimes eczema.
