What Is the Best Laundry Detergent for Babies?
We get calls daily about leaking cloth diapers, especially pocket diapers and All-In-Ones, and we decided to make this video to help answer the question what is the best detergent for cloth diapers. Please note that many parents do use Free and Clear detergents successfully… it depends on the water in your area. However, it is true that when we receive calls and the issue is due to the detergent, Free and Clear detergents were being used.
Free and Clear detergents contain microbiostatic, which control the growth of microorganisms, such as dust mites. This is beneficial to those with allergies, but may be the common ingredient that causes the fleece in your pocket diapers to repel. Now, many parents use Free and Clear detergents with great success (it really depends on your local water mineral content and washer), but if you begin to have leaks or smells after a few weeks or months, try stripping your diapers and then switching detergents.
Baby laundry soap vs. detergent
Before we begin, please note that we are just calling it baby laundry soap for the ease of distinguishing the two in this section, but when you go shopping for the product, you’ll most probably see them labeled as ‘baby laundry detergent’.
Anyhow, so the perks to using it as opposed to normal detergent is, of course, to use something with less chemical, something compatible with your baby’s delicate and sensitive skin. Sometimes these baby laundry soaps will use milder versions of similar chemicals, so as not to irritate the skin, while some may opt for more natural substitutes as well.
And while the common conception may be that these are super gentle and perhaps will be ineffective in removing stains, whether from spit ups or all kinds of mess babies get into, how effective some of them can be with stains will surprise you.
