Washing Baby Clothes: Frequently Asked Questions

Babies’ skin can be sensitive, which means it can be more easily irritated by some ingredients in laundry detergents, such as fragrances, preservatives or dyes. If you’re worried about your baby getting rashes or have any other concern about their skin, it might be worth considering a hypoallergenic laundry detergent for washing their clothes. Look out for formulations that are dye-free or fragrance-free, or ones that are specially created for babies usually labelled ‘sensitive’ or ‘gentle’. Also try to avoid using fabric softeners or anti-static products, as these also tend to have chemicals that can irritate skin.
