Question: Is touching laundry detergent mixed with water on laundry drying machine then touching eyebrow area of face cause any harm or changes to skin or bone structure (flatten or cause bones of eyebrow area to move back) of eyebrow area of face? Thinking it’s a paranoid thought.

Brief Answer:

No, don't worry

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

No, there is no such danger to the skin or bone structure.

This may cause just short-term irritation to the eyes and dry skin but there is no long-term consequence so you should not be worried.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
