I have always used either Dreft or Ivory Snow to wash my baby’s clothes. I was really stuck on those brands. They have been around forever, but they can be so expensive! Especially with how much laundry you have to do with a baby in the house! I ended up buying ALL BABY laundry detergent the last time I was shopping for baby detergent because it was quite a bit cheaper than the others. I was very happy with this ALL BABY.
Cleaning agents (anionic and nonionic surfactants), buffering agent, stabilizer, perfume and brightening agent. ULTRA ALL does not contain phosphorus.
The surfactants in All are biodegradable and the bottle has 25% or more post-consumer recycled plastic.
Now this does have perfume/ a baby fresh scent in it so…I don’t know if you would want to use this for washing newborn babies clothing. I am picky when it comes to that age.
I started using All Ultra Baby Detergent when my son was about 4 months old. We haven’t had any problems with irritation or rashes from the detergent. It gets all the stains out … I don’t even have to pre-treat! It IS safe to use with bleach, for hand washables and it is also safe for septic systems. The bottle says that it also will not harm the flame resistance of polyester sleepwear. ALL BABY is also free of dyes to reduce allergic reaction.
I have not used this with bleach…I haven’t had to. It does an amazing job cleaning/getting out spots that I think are going to stain. My sons clothes keep their color…this hasn’t caused any fading and whites stay white.Now, I haven't had to pre-treat any spots yet but, the bottle says that it is strong enough to use the detergent as a pre-treater. You just pour it onto the stain full strength. i also always wash in cold water.
Over all I am very happy with this detergent, I would recommend it to parents with babies. I find that is usually less expensive than the other brands of baby detergent.
I found this at Wal-Mart I believe I paid around $8.99 for the 64 load size. I can’t remember if it was on sale or not. This should be easily found at most stores that sell laundry detergents.
