Default Scent free laundry sheets available?

I've seen several posts about the purex 3 in 1 laundry sheets and recommendations for Tide or similar pods to bring for laundry on the cruise, but I haven't seen any that are scent free which I need because of allergies. Do any companies make these items?

I bought the unscented Purex, and it didn't make our daughter break out in a rash like other detergents would (we use Arm & Hammer at home). But I've read someone say on CC that it bothered them.

I take MY detergent is a zip lock bag. Then I know what I am washing with.

Wish I could do that, but I use Arm & Hammer unscented liquid detergent!
I'd love it if Arm & Hammer came out with their unscented in pods, as I could easily take a few of them with me.

I did see that Purex now has pods of a type called "free & clear" that I might consider trying.

All Clear comes in pods now. I have allergies to most detergents as well and was happy to see they started making them in the packs now.

Couldn't you take some liquid detergent in a travel bottle, like shampoo?
