Hi mama and welcome to the forum! I use the same laundry procedure you do only exception being zote soap instead of fels naptha. I have used this recipe and laundry procedure for 7 years now for all family laundry including hubby's nasty work clothes and it works great. When I first started this my oldest was a year old and I was pregnant with the second. We are all very sensitive to many things but this has never bothered us. My kids are now 8,6, and 2 and have been around this detergent all their lives with no issues. I have even gotten my family using it and my brother & wife have their first baby (now 8 mos) and he has had no issues either.

Cellis27 I also make my own detergent. I use washing soda, borax, and dr. Bronners for soap and this seems to have worked fine for my little one and cloth diapers as well.

I use washing soda, fels naptha soap, and occasionally Oxiclean Free. I also use a vinegar/cheap conditioner mix in a Downy Ball for fabric softener.

rnra Your current homemade laundry soap is probably going to be fine for baby too. What ingredients are in your recipe?

I am hoping to get some feedback about this...I currently make my own laundry soap, however with an upcoming new addition to our family I am curious. Do others have a special "recipe" for laundry detergent that is safe for the baby? I hesitate to use commercial brands, but I will use one if no homemade alternatives are good for the baby. I look forward to your responses. :thumb
