So my mom told me that you don't have to use baby clothing detergent. Do any of you wash your baby's clothes with just regular detergent?
You can use regular as long as it is fragrance and dye free:)
Wash just one articial of clothing in the regular detergent. If there is no reaction, then you can continue to wash them in it.
I use dreft b/c I love the smell. But you don't have to.
I do! I've never used baby detergent.
my hubby has very sensitive skin and was allergic to a lot as a baby and child...so for the first 3 or 4 months i washed our sons clothes in dreft and then i swithced to regular and watched for rashes and such...when nothing happened I just continued with regular detergent! They say you don't have to use it, but it's really up to you....! Lol, i also use scented tide, so using dreft just seemed easier than switching to a plain regular detergent! I am a good smelling laundry freak!! :D
Dreft was too expensive for me and the smell alone was horrible for allergies (love the smell but too strong for my allergies)!! I used All Free and Clear for the first month with Hailey's clothes. It got to be a big pain to wash a few little baby clothes by themselves so I washed her clothes in our soap with our clothes.
No reactions or problems so now she is 7 months old and her clothes are never washed seperately or in a different soap than ours.
I've always used the regular detergent.
If you or your husband have sensitive skin, you are better off using a baby laundry detergent or a die free/perfume free, but other wise you can use any other kind... It dosent make since to wash the babys cloths in one thing and yours in another because they touch your cloths all day long...
My daughter's doctor said there is no use in using it for baby and not your clothes. The baby touches your clothes so the baby is touching your deergent. We use kirkland free and clear (same as all free and clear).
