    Has anyone here experienced an allergic reaction to non-iron clothing (shirts or pants)? Conducting some very unscientific research. Thanks in advance for your input.

    I myself have not experienced any adverse skin or breathing conditions to any non-iron materials.
    Laundry detergent, liquid fabric softener and dry cleaning chemicals (perchlorethylene) may cause health issues.
    Any newly purchased garment that makes direct contact with skin should be washed before wearing.

    Have never bought such things as the premise is a nonsense.However the reaction you speak of wil be personal and not down to the process.

    Me neither, but that does not mean you're not allergic to the material.
