There’s probably not a mom out there who doesn’t love smell of Dreft, but let’s face it: it may be mild on your baby’s skin, but on Mother Nature? Not so much.
There are, however, eco-friendly laundry detergents that are milder on the planet and get your kid’s clothes just as clean. Here are 4 to try for yourself.
Seventh Generation is a leading brand in enviornmentally-friendly products and their baby detergent ($25) is made from plant-derived ingredients. It’s also free of fragrances, dyes and optical brighteners.
Dropps Baby Laundry Pacs ($8) are concentrated little sacks of enzyme-, dye- and scent-free detergent to reduce water, plastic and energy. And because you have enough to deal with, there’s no measuring required. Just throw one right in the washer and go.
Not only do we love the name of Babyganics’ Loads of Love detergent ($15), but we also love that it has no harsh chemicals or toxins that might harm or irritate delicate skin.
As with most of Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products, the Baby Blossom detergent ($16) delivers great (and great-smelling!) results with only natural ingredients. Plus, it’s completely biodegradable.
During April we’ll be highlighting luxurious, eco-friendly products for you and your baby every day. Follow the eco-friendly tag to see all our best “green” finds.
