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.
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.
