We Asked Moms What They Look for When Shopping for Baby Laundry Detergent

Every meticulous mom can relate when we say that making decisions for their little ones can get overwhelming. Choosing which baby laundry detergent alone can be confusing! With numerous products and brands in the market to choose from, how can a mom know which is effective, safe, and worth it? One fail-proof way that always works is to ask other moms about it! And so we did.

We surveyed our mom community on what qualities they consider first in buying their baby laundry detergent and here’s what they had to say.

Check the Ingredients (116 moms answered)
Most moms answered that they read the list of ingredients first before deciding on what baby laundry detergent to use. Since babies have underdeveloped and sensitive skin, it’s recommended by pediatricians to use a mild detergent that doesn’t leave behind any harmful residues that can cause allergies or irritation. What irritants should you look out for?  When you see bleach, dyes, phosphates, fabric softeners, SLS and SLES in the ingredients, put the product back on the shelf, mama.

"I make sure that the product I use has no harsh chemicals because my baby has sensitive skin. Of course, it should remove stains and have a fragrant but mild scent." -Rica, mom of 2


Go for Quality (61 moms answered)
Next to making sure that the laundry detergent they choose is safe, the moms we surveyed look for a product that’s proven effective. What sets a quality mild baby detergent apart? It should be able to remove stains and clean clothes thoroughly without being harmful to baby’s skin. With so many things to juggle on a daily basis, worrying about stains and laundry shouldn’t be part of a mom’s list.

I'm a first time mom and a work from home mom. I need to manage my time properly so that I don't miss out on an of my baby's milestones. That's why I choose products that are tried and tested so I'm sure that it will do the work that needs to be done.


Consider Value for Money (17 moms answered)
A meticulous mom is a no-compromise mom. A cheap product just won’t cut it if the quality of the product is bad. You get what you pay for, as they say, so look for a mild laundry detergent that gives you the value for your money.

"Baby clothes are really small, and I like that a small amount of powder goes a long way." -Maritoni, mom of 1


Top 4: Look for a Mild Scent (16 moms answered)
Do you agree that a baby’s scent is one of the best scents in the world? That’s why more moms prefer a laundry detergent that won’t mask their baby’s natural smell.

"I like how my kids' clothes smell nice. Even the clothes of Jio that we washed and stored need not to be washed again when Javi started using them." -Marian, mom of 2


Choose the Right Laundry Detergent for Your Baby
When we asked what brand of baby laundry detergent answers all the qualities they look for, these moms highly recommended Cycles Mild Laundry Detergent for Babies. It is the first proven mild and hypoallergenic baby laundry detergent in the market, the top choice of No Compromise Moms for over 15 years.

"I've been using Cycles for 2 years now. I got it as a baby shower gift, and seeing how my baby doesn't get allergies from it, I've stuck to the brand most of the time. I like its cute packaging (personally), its subtle scent makes me feel like the clothes are really clean, and the powder dissolves well (almost no visible lumps in the washing machine)." - Mommy Maritoni, mom of 1

"I've been using Cycles for 3 years, starting with my first born. I'm currently using it to wash my next baby's newborn clothes and I also use it when I need to handwash my own clothes." -Rica, mom of 2

"A fellow mom I trust recommended Cycles to me. I haven't shifted ever since because I'm happy with the product. I would have shifted if it had a negative reaction to my baby." -Marian, mom of 2
