Taking care of baby clothes can be a daunting task for new moms—especially because little ones have soft and sensitive skin. Baby clothes are in direct contact with your child’s skin, which makes keeping them clean and free of germs all the more important. Check out these tips on how to take care of your little one’s clothes properly to ensure your baby stays safe, clean, comfortable and cheerful.
Tip #1: Choose a Natural Laundry Detergent
Infants and children aged 0-6 years have highly sensitive skin as their immune systems are still developing. Parents should be especially careful to avoid exposing young ones to harmful chemicals—not only in food and home environments, but also when choosing laundry care products to wash their little clothes. Try to look for a natural laundry detergent that is hypoallergenic-tested and free of harmful chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and dyes. If you choose to use fabric softener, try to look for the one that doesn’t contain quaternary ammonium compounds (quats), which are known to cause allergies.
Tip #2: Remove Food Stains ASAP
When little ones begin to crawl and learn to eat by themselves, it’s a moment for parents to be proud; however, you will likely find that these moments often come with stains on your child’s clothes. We recommend changing their clothes immediately after they finish eating so that stains from fruits, juice, desserts and other foods don’t set in. To combat stains effectively, spray stain remover directly on any dirty areas, add a little water and laundry detergent, and let the clothes soak for 10-15 minutes before washing.
Tip #3: Don’t Be Intimidated by Dirty Diapers!
It’s only natural that things get a little messy with babies. Stains from baby urine and poop on diapers can be bothersome, but cleaning it up doesn’t have to be difficult. When your baby decides it’s time to go, we recommended changing the diaper immediately after. Clean your child up, put on a new diaper, and then bring the soiled diaper to soak in water with laundry detergent and scrub out any stains before washing as normal.
Tip #4: Pay Attention to All Fabrics at Home
While it’s important to keep your baby’s clothes fresh and clean, don’t overlook the importance of ensuring cleanliness of other fabrics your baby comes into direct contact with daily. Whether you’re cleaning bedding sheets, pillows, blankets, your baby’s clothes, or the clothes of other members in the family, we recommended using a powerful natural laundry detergent alike!
