  • I've always washed my kids clothes with the same soap we use. We never had problems.

  • I never used anything special for my kids clothes, you can start them with regular stuff any time you want to.

  • Unless he/she has super sensitive skin I don't see why you couldn't. I've washed both my kids clothes in my detergent and they are both fine.

  • I always used the same detergent, but because I have sensitive skin (so does my son) we use All Free & Clear with no dyes or perfumes. If he's not sensitive, I'm sure it will be fine. If he reacts at all, then switch back.

  • Yes, unless he has sensitive skin. I used special soap on my kids for like the first month and then stopped and niether of them had any problems with it.

  • We washed our son's clothes with ours, and we use stuff that is free of scents and dyes. Our son has been fne with it. Give it a shot, and unless he has a reaction, I think you're fine.

  • I've always washed my kids with the rest of the family's clothes in regular Tide.
