Hello ladies, Our clothes normally air dry (non-heated) and the final product is usually a bit 'crunchy'. OH and I don't mind this so much and so have never used softener. However, with baby on the way, I'm washing and preparing all his clothes and I wish they were a little softer! He will have such soft skin compared to us. I have some Ecover softener - been sitting in our cupboard for ages without use. Should I use this for baby's clothes? Are there other ways you recommend? We live in a hard water area if that makes a difference. Oh for washing I've been using Fairy non-bio for baby's clothes and Ariel Bio for our clothes.
