    Washing detergent for babies

    What do you use for washing the kids clothes?

    I know of the strong bleach used in most thai brands, so I wanted alternatives that are safer for little people.

    Kodomo brand (from Japan- I don't know if it's all imported or made locally to Japanese standards) detergent and fabric softeners are made specifically for newborns and older babies, and are available in Tesco and Big C.

    did not know clothes detergents contained bleach? Probably lotsa other strong stuff though..it is detergent after all? Before disposable diapers bleach was always used for cloth methinks.
    Probably the soap based liquids that the ladies use for lingerie and rinse agents would suffice or even cut up mild soap a la Mr Bean..probably find soap flakes someplace?
    Doubt many Thais or others worry about it as long as well rinsed?

    Funny that I am posting ....the wife won't let me wash anything beyond my crunchy working shorts.....

    Just a thought. In Tesco there is probably exactly what the OP is looking for next to the baby lotion, baby soap, baby....

    Kodomo detergent, which Failsafe mentions, or use natural soap.

    Natural soap can be bought in most shops selling cheap goods. It comes in a long white package of three bars.

    Kodomo and Baby mild are widely available in Big C and Tesco. Right next to all the rest of the baby stuff.
