Since giving birth to my first child, my outlook on the products I use have changed – a lot. I never paid much attention to labels and what products contained versus what they didn’t contain, but being a mom changed all that. One of the major changes I’ve made in the household and personal care products that I purchase is only choosing those that are sulfate-free.

In this post I’ll be sharing with you two products that have helped take the worry of whether or not I’m making good purchasing decisions as and when it comes to living a healthier lifestyle.

If you’re a regular reader then you know I’m still getting adjusted to being a mom. I was prepared for a lot of new responsibilities but I never thought every other day would become laundry day! I have a precious, newborn baby boy and he’s a shooter (if you know what I mean) so I find myself washing his clothes and bedding every other day almost. I ran to our local Walmart to pick up some detergent and because I’m focused on using the least toxic products I can find so I chose the new sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS®. You’ll find it on or near the top shelf of Walmart’s laundry aisle.

NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® delivers a powerful clean without harshness. I chose the fragrance free version because my son’s skin is still really sensitive. We’ve already experienced a mini-breakout from his face rubbing up against clothing so I wanted to make sure I didn’t choose a detergent or fragrance that would further irritate his face.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you prepare for your newborn’s laundry day:

  • Contrary to what people will probably tell you, you don’t have to use a detergent labeled for babies. As long as the formula is dye-free, sulfate-free, paraben free and fragrance free just to be safe – you’ll be good to go.

 

  • Liquid detergents rinse out a lot easier than powder detergents do so opt for a liquid version of your detergent of choice.

 

  • Be sure to wash your little one’s clothing and other garments and bedding before use. Many items contain chemicals that help prevent wrinkling while on store shelves.

He had a few items that were heavily soiled but the laundry load was small so I measured the detergent to the third line in the cap and poured it into the washer. After the cycle completed I checked to make sure all the stains were gone and they were! I always thought that sulfates were what actually cleaned clothing but this sulfate-free formula penetrates fabrics with proven ingredients for deep cleaning and stain lifting even when the stains have been in the clothing for a while.

You can grab the all® sulfate free with this coupon for $0.50 off one (1) all® product while supplies last.

As you can see from the photos, I concealed my dirty hair with a cap to go out to run errands. I also grabbed the AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner from Walmart’s hair care aisle because it was “wash-day” for my hair. I have very thick, naturally curly hair and its health is more important to me than anything. I suffer from frizziness and severe dryness so I’ve made it a priority to only use products that are sulfate and paraben free because it minimizes the drying out of my hair.

I start my wash-day routine by dividing my hair into four large sections because it’s much easier to cleanse my entire head properly this way. I wet my hair first and then I apply the AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and lather lightly before rinsing out. Once I’ve done this, I follow-up with the AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Conditioner to re-infuse the moisture that was lost during shampooing. I then repeat the process on each section and rinse the conditioner out to complete my routine. AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner contains naturally derived cleansers and a sulfate free formula to gently cleanse your hair and scalp. If you’d like to try it yourself, here’s a coupon for $1.00 off one (1) AVEENO® product (excludes trial and travel sizes).
