How to take care of Baby Clothes
At NativeBliss we believe in things that last, and want to help keep your Baby Clothes looking good for as long as possible.
We also believe in 100% Natural and Organic Chemical Free products. Products that are kind and gentle to your baby’s sensitive skin, yet effective at removing even the toughest nastiest stains.
With baby clothes there are a lot of different materials and each type should be considered when washing.
Product Care Labels.
We always recommend reading the products “care label” as your first priority. You need to understand what your baby clothes are made from, the recommended washing cycle and temperature of the water.
Then you’re good to go – well almost!
Did you know that no matter how good your washing machine is that there will always be some washing liquid/powder residue left in the fibres of your baby’s clothes?
If you use laundry detergents that contain man made chemicals, then this residue is known to cause skin irritation and baby rash in babies and children. This is usually found around the back of the knees, inside elbows and around any area where clothing can rub against your babies skin.
This is one possible reason why many baby’s suffer from rashes over their body.
NativeBliss range of KidsBliss Laundry Care Liquids has been specially created to eliminate baby rash caused by washing baby clothes with man made chemical detergents.
KidsBliss range of laundry care is 100% natural and made from carefully selected natural and botanical ingredients such as Purified Water, Coco Glucoside, Organic Soapwort Extract, Organic Saponified Coconut Oil, Organic Saponified Olive Oil, Seaweed Extract, Sodium Chloride, Organic Lavender Extract, Organic Horsetail Extract, Organic Witch Hazel Extract, Guar Gum, Citrus Seed Extract.

Baby Clothes Cleaning Tips
For Cottons and Other ‘hardy’ materials we recommend KidsBliss Laundry Liquids. Either Fragrance Free or Lavender. KidsBliss laundry liquid unlocks and releases the deepest and most stubborn ground-in dirt without using any nasty man made chemicals.
Machine wash in cold or warm water with environmentally friendly laundry detergent. Line or tumble dry on low.
For Woollens and Delicates we recommend KidsBliss Delicates & Wool Wash
This is ideal for washing all your woollens and delicates, including blankets and even wool pillows. With the natural disinfectant properties of eucalyptus and the natural softening properties of aloe vera. KidsBliss Delicates and Wool Wash will leave your woollens smelling fresh and clean.
Always check the washing instructions as some wool garments require hand washing.
If they are OK to machine wash, then do so in cold or warm water, an then line dry or tumble dry on low but only tumble dry if the care label says you can.
Don’t Bleach Woollen Garments
Do not soak or wash your wool garments using laundry powders since most laundry powders contain whiteners that act like bleach, even ‘eco-whiteners’ may still bleach your garment creating bleach spots and holes. If the garment is stained use a Stain Soap and gently rub into the affected area before washing. Never soak merino garments, as this destroys the wool fibres.
If your garment has been made with pure wool and has not been treated with a synthetic coating, it may pill. If pilling does occur, do not despair, this is a natural process when garments are not treated with any synthetic coating, simply remove the pilling fibres using a pill removing tool.
