  • Just wash them in hot water with Dreft and dry them in the dryer. It will kill the bacteria and allergens they may have picked up.

  • A mild laundry soap or really any laundry soap. By that age, I was using whatever laundry soap I used for my clothes. I bought 2 bottles of Dreft and when it ran out, that was when I used regular.

  • Vinegar and your usual detergent.

  • Use your regular detergent, and wash them on hot water,, as long as they are colorfast it will do the job! Extra rinse to make sure all of the soap is out!

  • Purex free and clear works wonders and is free of dyes and fragrances. It is perfect for babies sensitive skin.

  • Dreft

  • Agree with CraftingMama.

    Don't waste your money on Dreft. Your usual laundry detergent is good enough.

  • Forgot to add that you can add an equal amount of baking soda to how much laundry detergent you used.

    Hope that makes sense. :-)
