There are many women who choose to opt for organic behavior and purchases when they become mothers, because they begin to have a greater awareness of the future of our Planet and what their children will inherit.
Detergents for babies and children with natural ingredients
For new mothers one of the aspects that most involves them is laundry and one of the most common questions is: how can I clean her clothes thoroughly without being aggressive for the delicate skin of my baby?
There are many opinions and every mother could have her say. And on this homely ‘corvée’ there are many who decide to regularly adopt detergents that respect not only the environment but also the physiology of children.
Did you know that… You can clean everything with vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.
In this regard, there are some tricks that could be used to carry out the laundry in as environmentally sustainable a way as possible.
Let’s face a myth: in order to wash a newborn baby’s clothes well, it is not essential to sterilize them at very high temperatures, on the contrary, according to some experts this way would make them less protected and more exposed to contamination of harmful external agents, and certainly if you use detergents in large quantities, we risk the small dermatitis various.
Doing laundry separated from the rest of the family is a good idea, but it is enough to use a good Marseille soap with the addition, perhaps, of bicarbonate of soda to whiten and protect the garments.
The use of fabric softener is also not recommended as it deposits a transparent film on the fabrics that can cause allergies to the skin. If you use half a glass of white vinegar, the baby’s clothes will remain equally soft and fluffy, without being harmful.
Another useful precaution for greener baby clothes is to avoid bleaching treatments with various additives and bleaches, to avoid the risk of dermatitis and allergies to their delicate skin. Remember that apart from some garments in which a ‘vigorous’ cleansing is essential because they are always very dirty, such as fabric diapers, bibs and sheets, everything else does not need strong washing actions. The increase in allergies is an objective fact that by now numerous studies confirm to be linked to the excessive cleaning of the environments in which we live.
Small tricks to clean naturally
If the stains are fatty you can use natural ingredients such as lemon juice, eucalyptus oil, talcum powder or flour, the rule is the sooner you clean!
That’s not all, though. Even hanging out the clothes of the little ones requires more attention. Laying them upside down because they don’t turn yellow is a good habit, but also be careful if the clothes dry on the outside. In fact it would be better to avoid the morning and late afternoon hours because they are the ones with the highest concentration of traffic and fine dust that could contaminate the fibres of the clothes.
Obviously, in shops and large-scale distribution in many cities there are good detergents suitable for babies: on tap or packaged, liquid or powder, there is a wide range of products on offer in the sector (among the main ones: washing machine powder detergent Esselunga Ecolabel, Coop Viviverde, washing machine liquid detergent for delicate garments EcorNaturasì). For the most demanding and ethically aware, however, there are also many dedicated websites and forums offering practical advice.
