    Just use whatever you normally use, but half the quantity and add white vinegar to the rinse as it helps get rid of the detergent residue on the clothes

    Default Washing newborn clothes

    I used the sensitive, but that's because it's what I always use. Just use about 1/4 of what you normally would in both detergent and softener. I've done that on both kids with no issues and just start to use more powder gradually as they get older and their clothes get dirtier!!

    Thanks so much for the replies! To those suggesting vinegar, how much do you use per load? Also, I have a front loader so do I put the vinegar straight in the barrel or in the top where the softener would usually go?

    I just fill up the fabric dispenser with eucalyptus oil and vinegar usually but when washing newbie clothes I poured a cup and a bit into the machine at final rinse time.

    I have a front loader too and just fill up the fabric softener section to the top with vinegar.
