Now, more than ever before, you find yourself scouring ingredient labels on everything – cleaning and laundry products included. You not only want formulas that remove spit up stains and erase all traces of tossed pureed peas, but also ones are safe for baby. Fortunately, more and more companies are answering the call with chemical-free and organic options that go beyond homemade vinegar or baking soda concoctions. Here’s a roundup of 14 products to keep baby’s clothes, nursery and toys fresh and safe.
Get Soft Fabrics Without the Softener
Once you have clean clothes and bedding, you’ll want them soft and dry. Traditional fabric softeners are generally a big no-no for baby laundry as most contain chemicals that stay in the fabrics. Luckily, babyganics has a safe alternative. Their wool dryer balls help soften fabrics, reduce static and lower drying times (saving on your energy bill!). The 100 percent natural wool is sourced from sheep that are raised humanely. Toss the three balls in the dryer and leave them there for up to 1,000 loads.
Available at target.com, $19.99.
