    Baby's Laundry

    What is the best temperature to wash baby's clothes at to ensure that it is thoroughly clean? And is it recommended to use Napisan with each wash?

    Thanks.

    When our kids were babies we used the Napisan only for the nappies or if the BB's clothes had gotten very stained.

    Other than that, we washed the bb's clothes w/ the rest of the laundry: whites w/ whites on a higher temp; darks in colder water; wool in cold water and by hand as necessary.

    I never knew that some people washed their BB's clothes separately until I started reading and posting in parenting forums. :)

    we haven't washed either of our kids stuff separately either, but then again, neither of the kids has extremely sensitive skin....it is a great timesaver being able to just throw everything together...

    we, too, only used napisan for the 5 minutes that we used cloth diapers.

    i only used napisan for soiled nappies. & than rinse thoroughly in running water & wash again in the washing machine. i notice the smell of napisan is extremely strong of strong chemicals, so later on i washed the nappies separately with dettol & liquid tide.

    What temperature do y'all use - is 30C enough, or should we use 60C? Also I use Vigor and Napisan for each load, but do not separate out the bibs from clothes, etc. Any poo stains are rinsed but then washed with the rest of the clothing. Is this okay?

    Thanks for the replies. :)

    i wouldn't put the dirty (altho rinsed) nappy with clothing. i used to get the helper to wash them by hand first, and then put together with rest of the cloths in the machine. but if you don't have a helper (or if she's too busy to do that), i'd recommend washing the nappies in a different load.

    about temperature,when i was at school, we had housekeeping lessons, here is what i was taught: white cotton should be washed at 90, color cotton & bedsheets (cotton) at 60, synthetic at 30, any kind of wool in cold water.
