What is the best detergent for baby clothes

After seeing the price of some of the baby detergents, I opted to try out the one we normally use to see if we had issue with it. Luckily, Charlie does not need any sensitive baby formula so we were able to stick with what we use. There are a few out there that are specifically formulated for babies, and some parent's opt to make their own, too. Also, I wash Charlie's clothes separate from ours. His daddy works for the railroad and can get eh ahem.. dirty.

    I make our own laundry soap :-) That way you control what goes into it and its WAY cheaper!

        Yeah.. daddies with manual labor jobs almost need a washing machine just for their work clothes lol. I use All Free and Clear for diapers and BioKleen for the rest. I also use maybe 1/4 of what the container says to use.

          I make my own. We were using ALL free & clear but I did some research and found even that contains chemicals that can irritate my son's super sensitive skin. Plus, it is cheaper and lasts longer (making my own). I am also going to make wool dryer balls so we don't have to use dryer sheets anymore.

          It's good Charlie doesn't have sensitive skin--you got lucky with that. Lol

          I, too, have a man that has very dirty clothes as well. He gets all kinds of junk stuck to them from his job.

          We tried ALL baby on my son, and it caused him to sneeze a lot and created rashes on his delicate skin. He is as fair skinned as his father is, poor child.

          The kind I make can be used for those with a septic system. It was a recipe from a DIY couple.
