3 Helpful Tips for Washing Kids Clothes

How to Wash Children’s Clothes

Any parent knows that laundry day is an important day of the week. Babies and children have sensitive skin and parents know that they need to be extra careful washing their kids’ clothes so that they don’t have a reaction to any detergent or other laundry products. Before you head to your Chula Vista laundromat, check out these tips to successfully and safely wash your child’s clothes.

  • Wash everything before first usage

Even though it’s tempting to put your child in that cute outfit you just bought them, it’s important that you wash garments first. New clothing has been through the manufacturing process which involved the use of chemicals and pesticides, which can irritate your child’s skin. If you purchase second-hand clothing, don’t assume that the item was washed before the sale. Always wash clothing to remove any potential chemicals or irritants.

  • Wash soft toys with care

From favorite teddies to cozy blankets, your child’s soft toys should be washed from time to time. Plush toys that are loved by your child will inevitably harbor germs and bacteria. Every couple of weeks, take your child’s soft toys and take them to the laundromat with the rest of their clothing. Use detergent and fabric softener that is free from fragrance and let them air dry.

  • Soak stains first

Your child’s clothing is likely to get stained, whether that’s with ketchup, grass, mud, orange juice, or otherwise. Before heading to the laundromat, treat stained clothing. This will give the stain remover time to work its magic and be ready to be washed by the time you arrive at the laundromat.
