If you're a new parent, you might feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of laundry that comes with a baby.
Between spit-ups, diaper blowouts, and regular wear and tear, it can feel like you're constantly washing clothes! And to make it more complicated, baby clothes are often made of delicate materials and can require special care.
In this blog, we'll share some tips on how to wash baby clothes so that they come out clean, soft, and in great condition.
Most baby clothes will have specific instructions on how to wash and dry them. Some will need to be washed in cold water, while others can handle warmer temperatures.
Following the care label is the best way to ensure that your baby's clothes stay in good condition.
Separating your baby's clothes from the rest of your laundry, you not only keep your little one's clothes clean, but also ensure that they do not come into contact with aggressive detergents or other substances.
We recommend washing baby clothes separately with a mild detergent that does not contain fragrances or dyes.
You don't need to use a lot of detergent or fabric softener. In fact, using too much can leave a residue on the fabric, which can be irritating to your baby's skin. Use a small amount of detergent and skip the fabric softener.
If your baby's clothes are particularly soiled, we recommend you to pre-treat the stains before washing. There are many baby-friendly stain removers on the market that can help you get rid of tough stains without damaging the fabric.
When it's time to dry your baby's clothes, avoid using high heat. High heat can damage the fabric and cause it to shrink.
Instead, you can hang clothes to dry them. In this way you’ll keep them in great condition and can even help prevent wrinkles.
Finding and dressing your baby in high quality, delicate garments will also ensure that the clothes will last without getting damaged.
As you can see, washing baby clothes may require extra care, but it's worth it to keep your little one's clothes looking and feeling great.
