As a mommy, I always make sure to keep my baby safe. Be it food, skincare, haircare, toys, clothes, laundry, I always do thorough research before trying anything new on her. When it comes to laundry, I have seen lots of people using detergent powders or harsh liquid detergents. A baby’s skin is far more sensitive than an adult’s. I always look for a baby detergent that is free from sulfates, SLS, brightness, foam boosters, and bleach. A baby’s skin might get affected in the long run if we use harsh detergents for his/her clothes.
Here is my list of top laundry detergents for babies that are not only mild but also cleans the clothes effectively. They are even hard on stains.
Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Laundry Detergent for babies
I have been using Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Baby Laundry Detergent for almost 2 months. It is the best and the mildest baby detergent i have till date. This detergent is of liquid consistency and you only need a small amount each time you wash your baby’s clothes. It cleans the clothes very well, keep them soft and shiny, and is tough on stains.
Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Laundry Detergent for Babies is infused with neem and aloe Vera extracts that remove odor and germs from clothes. It is also anti-bacterial that helps in disposing of germs and bacteria that may appear from food and milk spills. The formula of the laundry detergent is very gentle, non-toxic and color-safe. I loved how my baby’s clothes still look the same as they were on day 1. I also washed her blankets using my hands and I was amazed at how gentle it was on my hands. I had bought lots of white clothes for Anaaya and usually, they get a yellowish tinge with time but with Mother Sparsh Plant Powered baby Laundry Detergent, the clothes look bright and vibrant white as new.
My baby is a huge fan of coloring with various crayons and water colors and most of the detergents I used previously failed in removing the color stains but Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Baby Laundry Detergent removes the stains and her clothes look neat and clean. The detergent also has a perfume that is hypoalllergenic and completely safe for baby's skin!
