I never spent the money on Dreft it is overpriced. All you need is a laundry soap that is "free and clear" All makes a great one., as does Cheer and even Tide now. All free and clear means is that it has no dyes, and no perfumes/scents. Most baby clothes are fine to be washed in warm water. After the baby is here if you are using cloth diapers they should be washed separately and in hot water with borax or baking soda and laundry soap. Never use fabric softener on diapers or bibs (towels either now that I'm here) it makes them less absorbent.

Wash in hot, use a free-n-clear laundry soap like arm and hammer or all, and use an extra rinse cycle. Never use Gain or Surf. They are horrible for your skin. My dermatologist said of the rashes he sees that are soap-related, 90% are from Gain or Surf. And wash your shirts the way you wash the baby's clothes -- as close as he/she is to you on a daily basis behind held, it's practically like he/she is wearing your shirt.
