Detergent T-Shirt: Throw and Wash

Detergent T-Shirt: Throw and Wash

Here's an interesting concept from abroad. The UK design team us design studio created this t-shirt concept as a "memento for festivals throughout the summer" where attendees often get filthy over a day's time amongst thousands of other revelers...

The t-shirt is infused with detergent (it looks like they've infused it with Persil) and can be directly thrown into the wash with other clothing, providing enough for a whole load. After the initial wash, the t-shirt reveals a unique pattern and number.

Our question is whether this is safe and hypoallergenic, since we're unsure having a detergent filled t-shirt would be the best bet for skin health (on inspection, we believe the designers specifically used Persil Non-bio formula detergent, which was specifically formulated for sensitive and newborn skin).
