5 Best Baby Laundry Detergents Brands in India 2019

Published on: 12 December , 2018 | Kanchan V

Your family now seems complete with the entry of your new born!! A new born brings along with her an ever increasing responsibility on the part of the parents on the health & hygiene aspect. Apart from a zillion other things to care for – the most challenging part is to handle the extra pile of laundry you have to deal with everyday. From bibs to wash clothes, nappies to dresses, wrappers to comforters, everything has to be spick and span so that you rule out every possibility of an infection/rash to your little one’s sensitive skin with the 5 Best Baby Laundry Detergents Brands in India 2019. Being a first time mom, it is but natural to wonder that what detergent you should opt for. A special baby laundry detergent or the normal detergent which is in use for the rest of the family? An answer to this is totally at your discretion. Each baby has her own skin types; for sensitive skin types – who already have the tendency to be susceptible to allergies/rashes, it is in the best interest to opt only for special Baby Laundry Detergents until she is five years old. If you do not observe any sensitivities/allergies on her skin, then you might want to continue with a regular laundry detergent itself. This way you would be helping the baby accustom to the normal practices the rest of the family adhere to. Basically choosing a Laundry Detergent is your personal choice. However, there are a few common important rules you need to adhere to while washing your baby’s clothes. These are discussed below:-
  • A new born baby is bound to poop several times. Each nappy should be removed off the poop with a health faucet and then soak the nappies in luke warm water. This helps in removing the stains from nappies to a large extent.
  • Check the label to confirm if there are any special instructions to be followed while washing clothes.
  • It is always best to dry clothes in direct sunlight; as sunlight acts as a natural disinfectant and also as a natural sterile agent
  • Health experts suggest that Machine wash is more preferable than hand wash; as it gives all round thorough cleaning.
  • The water temperature has to be set atleast 60 degrees when machine washing
  • Stains are quite stubborn; so it is always better to remove the stains with hand wash before putting them for machine wash. After meals, remove the baby bib and dress; and soak it in warm water for a couple of minutes and scrub off the stains.
  • Place the socks in a mesh bag and then put it in machine. This ensures that they do not get misplaced.
  • It is strictly advisable to first machine wash baby’s clothes; and then the rest of the laundry could be done. This prevents the bacteria from our clothes to be passed on to theirs.
  • Fasten velcros and buttons to ensure that other clothes do not get damaged.
  • Care should be taken that in case of hand wash, the baby’s clothes should be rinsed multiple times in water to remove off any residues of detergent remaining in the clothes.
  • Do not use strong fragrance liquids on the baby’s clothes.
  • Always try to opt for chemical-free, natural detergents.
  • It is needless to say that different soaps/detergents have different chemical compositions. It is better to adopt trial and error method, and find out for yourself as to which one suits her skin the best.

No precaution is too much when it comes to babies. Their skin is tender and so susceptible to allergies that special care needs to be taken in all aspects. The laundry detergents too. You have provided such a wealth of information which would be of great use to young mothers.

Sandy N Vyjay 2018-12-18 20:13:50

Yes Sandy, babies require special attention as they are prone to allergies quicker than we adults.
