Big thank you to Tide for sponsoring this post!
Anyone else weirdly enjoy doing laundry or just me? It’s the one household chore I truly find relaxing and therapeutic. I also think that seven years of living in a Manhattan apartment without my own in-unit washer and dryer is also a contributing factor. Just being able to do laundry conveniently at home and on my own time is a big luxury that I know I’ll never take for granted!
Last week I did baby boy’s FIRST load of laundry. Can you believe it? Now that his little wardrobe is starting to come together I figured I might as well begin washing everything while I still have the energy. I can’t get over how tiny everything is!!! SO cute.
If our little guy is anything like his daddy I already know he’s going to have sensitive skin. I’ve always had to use a hypoallergenic detergent when washing Nick’s clothing (I use it for mine too!) because he’s SO sensitive to perfumes and dyes. The poor man will literally break out in hives if his clothes get washed with a detergent that has any extra additives.
BEST HYPOALLERGENIC LAUNDRY DETERGENT // Tide Free & Gentle Laundry Detergent
One of my longtime laundry favorites is Tide Free & Gentle! I’ve been using it to wash our own clothing for years because it’s hypoallergenic and free of fragrances, dyes and phosphates. Not to mention it’s incredible at protecting colors while getting out stains and dirt– a task I’m about to become much more familiar with in a little over two months.
These benefits can be attributed to the entire Tide Free and Gentle collection of laundry detergents. I’m a fan of the liquid detergent, however Tide Free & Gentle also comes in Tide PODS form and powder formula. There are also two versions with added Downy fabric softener (a liquid and pod) to keep clothes soft and silky, nixing the need for fabric sheets or an added softening product. Curious where to buy the collection? You can shop each detergent at many major retailers including Amazon, Walmart and Target.
PS the Tide Free & Gentle Collection is dermatologist-recommended and recognized by the National Eczema Association (NEA) and the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF), based on an exclusive partnership.
