A MOM’S GUIDE TO WASH BABY CLOTHES – THE BEST DETERGENT FOR BABY’S SENSITIVE SKIN IN INDIA
Giving birth to a new life is one of the biggest joys in our lives. Every home welcomes the newborn with so many dreams. But along with happiness comes great responsibilities. Responsibilities of keeping the baby and everything related – safe and healthy. The list of responsibilities is long. But what tops the list other than food and safety is maintaining hygiene which includes keeping the baby clothes clean, dirt free and soft. Babies and stains walk side by side. So to find the right type of baby laundry detergent includes two most important criteria –
- To get rid of rigid stains
- To maintain the softness of the baby clothes
So I thought of making a list of my favourite 5. These are the best baby laundry detergents in India. Before starting with that, here is a guide to choose wisely which one is suitable for your baby!
A GUIDE FOR BABY LAUNDRY DETERGENT
There are few types of baby detergents available in the market. They are –
- BABY WASHING LIQUID DETERGENT
It comes in a bottle. This is most preferred as it does not leave any residue like baby detergent powders and effectively removes stains.
- BABY WASHING POWDER
This usually is available in a pack. It can be measured when washing. It is a very affordable option. But it needs to be mixed with water to retreat and remove stains.
WHAT ARE THE FACTORS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE CHOOSING THE BABY LAUNDRY DETERGENT?
- It needs to be plant-based or natural, which means it is eco-friendly and not harmful.
- This should not have toxic chemicals like phosphate, fluorescence, chlorine and colourants.
- It should not leave any residue on the fabric which might cause any type of irritation.
- This should remove stains and dirt.
- It should wash off any odour.
Based on all these points, I have come up with my list of the 5 Best Baby Laundry Detergents in India. Let’s discuss them in detail.
1.) MOTHER SPARSH PLANT POWERED LAUNDRY DETERGENT FOR BABIES
Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Laundry Detergent for Babies (https://mothersparsh.com/) is truly an outstanding product that shields babies from any harm. This baby washing liquid detergent is safe, natural, biodegradable, non-toxic, and antibacterial. Above all powered this has the benefits of plants. The key ingredients in this laundry detergent for babies are –
i) Aloe Vera
iii) Eucalyptus Oil
Aloe Vera extract protects the soft baby skin from rashes and irritations. So this makes the baby detergent wash to be mild on clothes, hands and environment.
Neem has antibacterial properties. It helps in sanitizing the baby clothes, eliminating any bacteria from spoiled food, dirt, poop, pee and grime.
Eucalyptus Oil is the natural essential oil that provides a fresh and mild fragrance to baby clothes. This also eliminates any bacterial growth.
Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Laundry Detergent for Babies is used in both the cases of hand wash and machine wash. In the case of handwashing, I pour 5ml of liquid detergent into 5 litres of water. Mix that well. Then soak my baby’s clothes in it for 20 to 30 minutes. After that, I gently hand wash them. Then rinse them thoroughly with clean water to remove any detergent. I repeat almost all the steps sans the gentle hand washing and hand rinsing when washing in the machine. I always prefer soaking my baby’s clothes for some time. That gives time to the detergent to loosen up the tough stains and dirt.
I have been very particular about my baby’s clothes. To date, I choose separate liquid detergent for his clothes even though he has grown up now. The main reason behind choosing Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Laundry Detergent for Babies is always its ingredients. The botanical herbs are blended in such a way that they deliver softness, hygiene, safety and freshness on babies’ skin and clothes, like towels, bibs, shirts, pants, woollen blankets, sheets and washable diapers.

Not only this takes away the tough stains like that of chocolate & turmeric, but it also leaves them with a fresh fragrance maintaining their colours.
There have been many times when my son used to throw tantrums while eating all by himself. Of course with it came lots of spills. This is a daily affair to date even though he is a grown-up now! Every day he keeps spilling food from Pizza to cheese to curry to ice cream. Thank God, I have had a Mother Sparsh Plant Powered Laundry Detergent for Babies for some time now. This removes the stains and stops me from stressing on this. At times I wash my inner wears and very delicate and soft linens with this baby washing liquid detergent. It protects the quality and softness of the fabric and also protect the colours too. Such is the goodness of this detergent wash. That is why I find it to be the best detergent for clothes.
