There are SOOOO many different types of bio, non-bio, allergenic, hypo-allergenic etc etc. washing powders, tablets on the market... which is the best for a newborn?
Want to get all the baby clothes washed and ready
DS has eczema and Fairy gel is fine for his skin but we don't use softener as it can irritate skin with eczema. Haven't tried the Fairy powder but they're probably very similar. I remember when on maternity leave last time before DS was born I washed and ironed all his wee clothes, I haven't had time to iron any since! The washing machine is never off so it's going to be so busy when we have two!
As long as it is non-biological any should be fine. I used Fairy non-bio powder with my son and plan to use a sensitive powder or maybe Fairy again as has been said it does smell lovely. It can be pricey though so if you are on a budget there are cheaper non-bio sensitive powders. It's all a mine field in the baby world ay!
If you prefer non-perfumed there are varieties out there to cater for that too.
I have really bad allergies to wash powder and can only use tescos own brand, if I was to use a different one say persil to wash baby's clothes then I'd have to run at least one empty wash to get any residues of powder out before I could wash my clothes. Obviously this will not happen so would tescos own brand be ok for baby? They do a nonbio one.
I've been considering soap nuts but I'm not sure I'd trust them..
I just used Daz powder when my daughter was born (9 years ago), never really thought about it to be honest. I am currently using Persil liquid and will probably just use that. Does anyone know if that would be ok or is it too perfumed/harsh??
