Are you separating your LO's clothes from the rest of the laundry?
Do you use baby detergent?


If we had our own washer/dryer we would separate, but since we have to go to the laundromat we don't. We use what ever detergent is on sale or is least expensive.

Thomas' was my only baby I used special detergent for.

I usually wash Ava and Elijah's clothes together, but sometimes I just throw them in with whatever other things we have too. I don't use special detergent. I did with Ava for the first few months, but Elijah I didn't. He never seemed to be sensitive to any of it.

We used different detergent at first. Now I throw his stuff in with mine. SO's are always washed separate since they are extra dirty!

We have to go to the laundromat, too. How do you do it with three kids? Any suggestions? Levi always flips when there are about 5 minutes on the dryer, so folding is a nightmare!

I dont do it DH always does the laundry and we never stay there while waiting for the clothes if we are all together. We usually hit the playground while waiting and NEVER fold the clothes there. I used to do it on my own with the two boys and that was hard enough

I use my regular detergent on Ben's clothes...Gain for colors and whites, Woolite for darks for the darks. My water is super hard hence the having to use Woolite...

I usually do hubby's clothes by themselves and mine with the kids.

Yes i still seperate Catie's clothes. I just use a dye free/perfume free to wash her clothes. I was using Tide free and clear, but i just bought All small & Mighty free & clear. I also wash Emmie's clothes in this detergent, since she has eczema & skin sensativities.

We learned early on to just wash EVERYTHING in the Free and Clear laundry soap. We did all of LO's stuff before he was born then when we brought him home his face was breaking out b/c of it touching our clothes.
So now I only wash off stuff like rugs and dish towels in our old laundry soap so it doesn't go to waste.
