Choose a quality baby-friendly laundry liquid to fight tough stains and care for bub’s sensitive skin

 

Choosing the right laundry liquid for babies with sensitive skin

A new baby’s skin is soft and delicate and needs to be cared for with quality products specifically formulated for babies. While all babies have delicate skin, some little one’s skin may be even more sensitive than others, even prone to rashes and eczema. If your bub has sensitive skin, choosing the right laundry liquid for your little one can ensure bub’s skin is cared for and not irritated. To find the best laundry liquid for your little one’s sensitive skin, look out for ones that are dermatologically tested, non-irritating, and also paraben-free. Even if your little one isn’t prone to rashes or eczema, your baby’s skin is delicate. The reason why many parents choose a gentle laundry liquid formulated for babies from a trusted brand.

 

Tips for washing baby clothes properly to avoid skin irritations

In general, baby-friendly laundry liquids are tested by dermatologists and/or paediatricians. What makes trusted baby laundry liquids baby-friendly is that they’re hypoallergenic, free of dyes, phosphates, optical brighteners, bleach, preservatives, additives, parabens and enzymes, and are also fragrance-free. And they must be effective in removing stains.

Many parents wash new baby clothes and nursery linen, bedding and sheets before using them. Keeping any fabric that comes into contact with your little one’s skin hygienically clean, soft and non-irritating is important to keep bub safe and comfortable. Here are some useful tips for washing baby’s clothes properly to avoid skin irritations.

  • Wash all new clothes before use in a baby-friendly laundry liquid formulated for delicate and sensitive skin.
  • To remove stains from everyday mishaps and to minimise skin irritation, continue to use a laundry liquid formulated for babies.
  • If your baby has sensitive skin, choose a laundry liquid specifically formulated for babies with sensitive skin.
  • Ideally, a baby-friendly laundry liquid is suitable for machine washing and hand washing. Check the suitability of laundry liquid for a front loader or top loader.
  • If you’re hand washing baby’s clothes, ensure you thoroughly rinse out all laundry liquid.
  • For machine washing or hand washing, always ensure all baby clothes and baby items are completely dry before using.
