Should I use fabric softener on baby clothes?

Washing baby clothes before they're worn is an absolute necessity. Use a "free & clear" detergent to wash these clothes and skip the fabric softener, both liquid, and sheets. Fabric softener can reduce the effectiveness of the flame retardancy on baby pajamas and can also irritate your baby's skin.

Do I wash baby clothes in hot or cold water?

If there are no instructions, then you can wash in cold or lukewarm water, with temperature of around 35-40ºC. Warm water is ideal for washing cloth diapers and baby's undergarments as it helps remove any foul odor and infection. For regular clothes, cold/room temperature water should suffice.

Can I put baby clothes in the dryer?

Vintage or particularly nice baby clothes might benefit from a line dry rather than being tossed in the dryer, as Martha Stewart mentioned, but other than that, it should be safe to dry your baby's clothes in the dryer. (You might want to use the gentle cycle though.)

So long as your baby doesn't have any skin sensitivities or allergies to the scent, you don't have to buy a special detergent just for baby laundry. Your regular laundry detergent probably does a good job of removing stains and dirt, so this is usually the most convenient choice.

Tide Free and Gentle. I bought a bottle of Dreft laundry detergent because I've heard from others that it's the best detergent to use for washing baby clothes, sheets, etc. 1 bottle of Tide Free and Gentle that has double the loads of 1 bottle of Deft is only $2 more expensive than Dreft.

Is Dreft good for eczema?

We used to use All Free and Clear as a non-allergenic detergent for baby's clothes. Our baby still got pretty bad eczema, though, and we decided to give Dreft a try. It really works; the eczema didn't disappear completely, but he's much better.

Should you wash baby clothes separately?

You may want to wash the baby's clothes separately from the rest of the family's, but this isn't necessary, as long as you use a mild soap. Always put baby clothes away clean, as dirt tends to attract pets, and stains can set and become permanent with time.
