Hi I'm Erica, we're in Salt Lake City Utah, and I'm going to talk to you today about how to wash baby clothes. Usually baby clothes you should wash them on cold water so that they don't shrink. Because they do have the tendency to do that. Be sure to wash them on cold water, put the baby's clothes inside out so that any graphics or anything on the front won't fade or get fuzzies on it. After you do that, fill up the basin with water, put a delicate detergent. Usually they do sell some baby, some infant detergent that you can buy for baby's skin to help reduce allergic reactions to different types of soaps. Just be sure it's gentle. And then after it's done with it's first cycle, do an extra rinse cycle just to make sure that all the soap is out of the baby's clothes to reduce allergic reaction. After that you can take the baby's clothes out of the washer and put it in the dryer. And be sure not to put any dryer sheets in, because that can also give baby an allergic reaction, also. So just dry it without the dry sheets, and then that's it.
