    When DS was very little I used Purity Sensitive. Once he got to about 12 months I changed to Omo Sensitive.

    I started out using purity but then realised my normal detergent, earth choice, didn't have any nasties in it either.

    We use Omo too. Instead of softener, I use Canesten laundry rinse.

    I've always just used normal stuff. My dd hasn't had any issues with regular washing detergents.

    Normal stuff, except for wool wash for the delicate knits etc. But I run everything g through the good rinse, not just the Eco rinse that I use for myself.

    Until about 8 months when I just start throwing harder wearing baby clothes in with our normal laundry.

    Normal detergent for us too, if you're really worried you can do an extra rinse Neither of my babies have had skin or allergy issues
