Is it safe to use dryer sheets for newborn baby clothes?
Do not use dryer sheets with your babies clothes. It is entirely unnecessary to use them at all! There is no need for extra chemicals or perfumes on the baby’s clothes. If you think that the clothes will not be soft enough add vinegar to the rinse (it is a natural fabric softener and will not leave your clothes smelly!) or buy dryer balls (I use some from Nellies). Also, don’t bother using Dreft or Ivory Snow “special baby detergent” all of them contain perfumes which can be irritating to babies nose and skin. Use a scent, dye and enzyme free detergent on all of your household’s laundry. Your baby will be in very close contact with all of your clothing too!
