All Free and Clear fades clothes. It does not dissolve in cold water and does not rinse out of clothes. I seem to have this problem with other laundry detergents too so I can't say it is just this brand. It does bleach your clothes if it sits on it directly for at least 30 minutes. If it does that then I'm sure it is likely fading clothes. I have to put some hot in with the cold water to get the detergent rinsed out otherwise they stink worse like detergent, faded, and full of static. I have tried barely using any detergent at all and I have tried using more and it doesn't work in cold water. The detergent won't come out. I do have hard water and have been using vinegar instead of fabric softener. I have a large top loader and put small amount of clothes in.
I switched to another hypoallergenic detergent and all of my rashes stopped immediately. I don't know if I can mention it here, but I switched to Arm & Hammer, the one that says Dermatologist Tested. Maybe the All Free and Clear I got on sale had something wrong with it, I just don't know. But I did isolate the my allergy problem.

The laundry came out feeling clean and smelling fresh. The stained muslin squares did not fair as well, especially in cold water washes. I did used a bit of the liquid detergent to pretreat the stains, worked in the detergent and allowed the squares to sit for 15 minutes before washing. In warm and hot water, the detergent performed well in removing most traces of the ketchup stain and grass. For the cooking oil and ground-in mud, a stronger stain remover was needed. all® free clear simply does not have the enough of the necessary cleaning enzymes in the formula to break apart some stains on fabrics.
