Laundry Detergent for Babies

Since babies have sensitive skin, conventional detergents might be unsuitable for washing babies’ clothes. Strong chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Lauryth Sulfate can cause skin irritation and can aggravate eczema and psoriasis among children and babies. The common areas of infection are where there is greatest of rubbing of the skin with the clothes such as neckline or arm openings. These appear as red rashes that may be itchy.

Additionally, babies are prone to chewing and biting any clothes they can get their hands on, leading to ingestion of harmful chemicals. However, buying a separate baby detergent may not work because the baby’s skin comes in contact with bed sheets, pillow covers and clothes that you wear when you cuddle your baby. Since BubbleNut Wash can be used for washing both adults and babies’ clothes, many families start using soapnuts to protect the younger members of the family and end up using them as their regular detergent.

Babies also tend to get rashes from chemical residues in washable cloth diapers. BubbleNut Wash is great for washing cloth diapers. Make sure you soak the diapers in warm water as part of the pre-rinse cycle to remove dirt. Using warm water during the wash cycle is also effective in better cleaning of diapers.
