    Washing baby clothes

    I'm just wondering what's a good laundry powder to wash baby clothes? Should fabric conditioner be used?
    And do you all wash new clothes?

    Thanks!

    yeah of course... i wash every new clothes. Are you preparing for your new born? I use a liquid laundry detergent for my baby. The brand is VENDOME. Its contain no detergent and safe for baby. its all in one. Soap and softener...smells good and very nice.

    i've always washed my son's clothes with the rest of the family. it would take an awful lot of baby clothes to make one load of laundry...
    he's never had a problem or reaction to it...

    We washed D's clothes separately for the first 6 months. All new clothes and soft toys were washed before his arrival. We used Vigor baby detergent from ParknShop/Wellcome.

    Persil nonbio is also good. It is not recommended to use fabric softner with newborns because more likely to cause a skin reaction. With our firstborn I think we washed her clothes separately for quite a few months, but with our secondborn just a few weeks, just to check she wasn't getting any skin irritations and while she was very delicate. If you do wash with rest of family and your baby does get irritated skin where in contact with clothing, eliminate fabric softners and use bare minimum of nonbio detergent.

    Amway also does a baby laundry detergent - very economical.
    I washed everything before wear in the regular family detergent for the first few weeks. Then, I just took new clothes out of the packet and put them on baby. Unless, bought from a market/sample shop. Now everything always gets washed together - never had any problems.
