How to Wash Baby Clothes
Your little bundle of joy can create a huge bundle of laundry. Here’s how to handle baby’s wash with care.
Tips for Baby Clothes
Wash all new clothes before first use and after each wear. Use Clorox® Regular-Bleach to sanitize white and color-safe items.
Keep a Clorox® Bleach Pen Gel stain remover nearby for a convenient way to treat stains on white or partially white clothes.
Baby clothes do not need to be washed separately from the rest of the family’s clothing, but cloth diapers should always be washed on their own.
Wash and sanitize baby clothes and other items that come in contact with baby skin (like blankets, towels and sheets) in a mild detergent along with 1/2 cup of Clorox® Regular-Bleach for white loads. Use only the recommended amount of detergent (too much may leave an irritating residue) and the warmest water you can according to the label.
Dry clothes thoroughly.
Clorox® Regular-Bleach can be effectively used on color-safe baby clothes. It kills invisible things like bacteria and removes body soil embedded deep in fibers. Be sure to rinse the clothes well. Some moms like to run the clothes through an extra rinse cycle.
Tips for Cloth Diapers
Wash all cloth diapers before first use and after each wear. Use Clorox® Regular-Bleach to sanitize white and color-safe items.
