When you have a new baby on the way, you have too much to think about that finding a good baby detergent is probably not the first thing on your mind. So, we did a lot of research to help you find the best baby detergent without having to worry too much. Before we get started, let’s look at the key things you need to know for how to pick the right baby detergent.
Type: These detergents are available in liquids and powders. Neither one is better than the other but most people have a preference for which kind they prefer. Luckily, we found some really great options for both types.
Organic: We didn’t find a lot of truly organic options. In fact, there are only 2 products on our list that are considered organic. That said, most of the others are completely plant-based and natural, they’re just not certified organic.
Total Loads: The more loads you can get out a product, the better. When you have a new baby, you’re tired and forgetful and there are fewer things more annoying that finally getting to the laundry and realizing you’re out of detergent.
Hypoallergenic: Any baby detergent for sensitive skin should be hypoallergenic, or free of added dyes, fragrances, and preservatives. Hypoallergenic products are less likely to cause irritation to sensitive skin because they have fewer things in them that can cause a reaction.
Package Size: Some of these products are multi-packs that include 2 bottles of detergent rather than one. This can sometimes get you a really long-lasting supply for a better price. Just make sure you like it enough to use it for a while.
Scent: Just to be clean, none of these products have any artificial fragrances or perfumes added. Most of them are, in fact, fragrance-free. That said the 3 that do have a scent use all-natural essential oils and botanicals.
Now that you know a little bit more about what to look for, let’s get into our baby detergent review. Here’s how it works. We put our top and budget picks first so you’ll see them, even if you’re in a hurry. That’s the best way to see the range of products available. Stick around if you can, though, all of these products are perfect for baby and unique in their own way. Alright, let’s get to it.
