  • I don't think fabric softener will do much to hard denim, but you can try. My kids never had a reaction to detergents.

  • I wouldn't b/c fabric softener is flammable and most of the infant detergents aren't.... just in case of a fire

  • If your child doesn't have sensitive skin, I don't see why not. You can also use white vinegar instead.

  • I always use softener and have never had problems with either of my children.

  • White vinegar in the laundry rinse works so much better.

  • As long as your LO isn't sensitive to it, go for it. There is a dye free one from downy that works pretty well.

  • They do have fabric softener out there with no perfumes or fragrances in them I think, that's what I'd use on a baby. No use taking a chance if you don 't have, but I'm sure the regular would be ok if the baby has no allergies from it.
