But there is one thing that every parent will agree on and that is buying organic, non-toxic products that work. And my list of recommended baby laundry detergents is a great starting point for any of you looking to swap over from your current detergent. You could even .
My investigation of ingredients and price per ounce of baby laundry detergents led me to a different selection of detergent. Currently I am using Purex free and clear, in the white bottle. I can buy it for a 4 cent/ounce value at my local store. Purex also make a line for babies. It is slightly more expensive and comes in a much smaller bottle than the Purex free and clear. Almost every major laundry company makes a line of dye and perfume free products.
If you're concerned that regular detergent may be too harsh, first wash one or two baby items in the detergent. After your baby wears the clothing, check his skin for irritation or note whether your infant is acting uncomfortable or itchy. If that's the case, try a detergent with no dyes or fragrances. If that doesn't work, double-rinsing clothing or using baby detergent until your baby is at least 1 year old may help.
I think it is good to be aware of the other options out there to wash your baby’s clothes in. If your baby does not have skin sensitivities, Dreft is still a good choice. If you are looking to save money, there are other less known options out there that will do the same job and perhaps even get stains out better. I noticed that the Purex removes stains more easily for me. For those tough stains, I use the perfume and dye free version of Oxi-Clean with the neon green lid. Below is a list of my favorite products due to value and efficiency as well as other acceptable baby detergents.
