When it comes to effective baby laundry detergents that are safe to Mother Nature and your baby, Method Laundry Detergent and Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent are the best two choices. These baby safe, environmentally friendly detergents are made from non-toxic ingredients derived from natural sources such as plants and oils. If you’re an advocate of green cleaning like me, you would probably love using these detergents for your child’s clothing.
Method Laundry Detergent is very effective in removing tough stains of all kinds. For a natural, dye free product, it does the job consistently well. Having two little boys, you can imagine how filthy their clothes get at the end of the day. Method can clean out any dirty clothing in a single wash. This detergent contains active enzymes that break down tough stains and spots. It is also triple concentrated and is packed in a small convenient bottle.
Known for its sweet scent, you can use Method as an alternative to Dreft. If you love fragrant baby clothes, you might want to try out this product. But if your baby is allergic to perfumes, you can go with Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent instead.
Seventh Generation is a prominent manufacturer of eco friendly baby products. Aside from laundry detergents, they also manufacture diapers, wipes and other baby needs. Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent is made from all-natural ingredients tested safe on baby skin and effective on tough stains. It is biodegradable and does not have a damaging effect on the environment.
Seventh Generation is available in liquid and powder form. Unlike other powder detergents, Seventh Generation dissolves easily in the washing machine. It works well and I didn’t have trouble removing tough stains like colored food, liquid waste or milk. This baby detergent works amazing on delicates as well.
In any case your child experience rashes or allergy of some sort with these detergents, consult your pediatrician right away. You may also try switching brands weekly to test which one best suits your child’s skin.
