Having a baby is so much fun and exciting indeed. However, they use tons of clothing in just one day! Whether its spit ups, food or milk spills, diaper leaks, our babies can get dirty within minutes after bath time. It literally doubles, and sometimes triples, your laundry load.
It’s a big no-no to wash your baby’s clothes with the rest of your laundry. You don’t want to put your child at risk of acquiring skin diseases. Baby skin can be so sensitive. They could get rashes, skin allergies, and eczema especially from regular detergents and other laundry products. Certain chemical ingredients in these products are simply too strong for your child’s delicate skin.
On the bright side, there are plenty of special detergents and laundry products in the market specifically made for baby’s skin. But there is such a variety that it becomes difficult to choose which one you would actually want to use.
Here are my top personal choices of special detergents. These are products that I have tested and proven safe for baby skin.
ALL Free & Clear. Most moms love this product because it’s hypoallergenic, effective and affordable. ALL Free & Clear is baby safe and does not contain perfumes, dyes and other toxins.
Method Laundry Detergent. Method Laundry Detergent contains a biodegradable, plant-based formula that is tough on stains yet gentle on baby skin. It is a bit costly. But it is worth it.
Purex Baby Liquid Detergent. This detergent is the best choice for households with a tight budget. Purex Baby is hypoallergenic and cleans effectively. However, it may not always be available in the supermarket.
BabyGanics Loads of Love. BabyGanics Loads of Love works amazingly well for a natural detergent. Its formula is made from natural-derived ingredients. It is effective and safe to use even on cloth diapers. It is highly concentrated and can be used in High Efficiency washers. Definitely, it is the safest to use for your child.
Seventh Generation Baby Laundry Detergent. Seventh Generation Baby Laundry Detergent is one of the most popular, natural baby detergents available. It is free of dyes and fragrances. This product is biodegradable and uses naturally derived ingredients.
