  1. Did you accidentally shrink baby’s favorite shirt? Soak it in conditioner and water for 15-20 minutes. It helps loosen the fabric just enough to be wearable again!
  1. A must have tip for babies bum explosions...always wash it right away! If you wait too long the stain will seep into the fabric and never come out.

  1. Huge mess? Don’t be afraid to TRASH it. Sometimes a stain is just untamable.
  1. If your baby has highly sensitive skin and is having a hard time adjusting to your detergent try Eco-free, Charlie’s Soap, All (fragrance free) or Biokleen.
  1. If you’re drying a load and it’s taking forever, try throwing in a dry towel. It will generate more heat throughout the load of clothes, causing them to dry faster!
  1. Refresh unused clothes that have been in the diaper bag all week! Put the items into the dryer with a fabric softener sheet and an ice-cube for a 15 minutes.
  1. Stuffed Toys Laundry Tip:
  • Place toys in a mesh washing bag.
  • Set to wash on the delicate cycle.
  • While still in the mesh bag, set your dryer to “air dry” or on the lowest setting!

Now that you've got the laundry covered, here are six tips for thriving when you have a newborn.
