The younger the child, the more carefully you need to approach the choice of detergent: it should not only wash well, but to be safe, do not contain harmful substances, good to vypolaskivat. For children till years it is better to use a special hypoallergenic gel or baby soap for washing. For older children, experts recommend any baby powders or gels – they are well suited for frequent washing, contain soft surfactants, they contain no phosphates and flavors, often causing irritation and allergies. Pay attention to the inscription on the packaging "Suitable for sensitive children's skin, dermatologically and clinical control, does Not contain synthetic additives and colorings", etc. in the Beginning it is better to buy a small packet of washing facilities: all of a sudden it will not work.

Safer to dry things in the apartment or on the balcony if you hang them to dry in the bathroom, make sure that the walls are not formed mold because of it the child (as in adults) can develop or worsen allergies, asthma and other diseases. If the apartment became very humid, it makes sense to think about buying a system of climate control.

If you do it at night – by morning the thing will already be dry or a little wet, and it can be dry on the drying rack or the clothesline.


It is necessary not only for the aesthetic side when it comes to children's clothing, Ironing and more hygienic necessity (unless, of course, things were not in the high-temperature drying cycle in a drying or washing machine). So don't forget to iron well, and ideally even steamed iron the baby's clothes and especially linen: this is an disinfection!
