Dreft Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Hannah. Congrats!

Do you know what the the baby laundry detergent brand most recommended by pediatricians is? Specially formulated for the unique needs of baby items, Dreft is as gentle as water on baby’s skin and has helped moms and dads clean baby clothes for over 75 years. Dreft is one of those parenting things you hand down to your kids and tell your friends about.  I know I received several bottle of Dreft at my baby shower!  This is also a great detergent to use if you have an allergy to detergents.  It’s one of the few out there that you shouldn’t have any problems with!

Dreft also has a site you can check out.  They have some great laundry tips, how to prepare for when baby comes home, and even how to remove food, soil or oily stains.

  1. Would you say deft works better then other cleaning products when it comes to doing the best for your baby? I've heard good things from a lot of people and since I'm expecting I want the best for my baby.

  2. A tip from their site says to wash the car seat, stroller, and playpen fabrics before baby comes home. I never though of taking the cover off the stroller or car set to wash them before baby comes.

  3. I learned that Fabric softener may reduce flame resistance when used on children’s sleepwear or other garments labeled as flame resistant.

  4. My tip is to not overload the washer with clothes…they get much cleaner with a normal size load. Thanks for the chance, this would be great for my sister who is expecting!

  5. when i'm doing whites i like to pour the bleach directly into the washer b/c if i put it in the dispenser some always leaks out into my color cycle

  6. I put prewash on spots as I am sorting the laundry instead of waiting until I put it in the washer. That way it has more time to work on the stain.

  7. Great Dreft laundry tip for getting food out: Soak up to 30 minutes by adding 1 use Dreft and fill washer 1/3 way full.

  8. I have been doing this for years!: Take the laundry out of the dryer halfway through and hang everything, it saves lots of energy costs.

  9. To take out pollen stains either soak the item in cold water and leave it in the sunlight or place a piece of sticky tape over the stain and when you pull the tape off the mark should disappear too!!!

  10. Grease stains on fastfood uniforms? Soak in warm white vinegar for 1 hour, add 1/4 cup baking soda, rub into stain. Let sit for an hour. Wash as you normally would.

  11. Love Dreft! Used it when my five year old was a little-one and plan on using it again with my next one! My laundry tip was mentioned earlier – I never use fabric softener when I was the baby clothes because it reduces the flame resistance. I also like to use vinegar with baby whites because it makes them soft and gets rid of stains. Speaking of stains – my bff is OxyClean!

  12. Here's a tip from the website: Fabric softener on children's sleepwear or other garments labeled as flame resistant may reduce flame resistance

  13. My favorite laundry tip is to hang your clothes outside. I know it takes more time but it also makes it a pleasant experience and it gets you and your child outdoors…where things tend to change from chores to play.

  14. The best tip is if you're trying to get a stain out, don't put your clothes in the dryer till you're sure it's gone

  15. My favorite laundry tip is for diaper soils:

    Rinse cloth diapers with cold water immediately after use.
    Pre-soak in a solution of Dreft® and a color-safe bleach for 30 minutes.
    After soaking, wring out excess water by hand or run diapers through the spin cycle.
    Fill washer with warmest water allowed according to garment label, add 1 1/2 uses of Dreft® and launder as usual.
    Repeat process if needed.

    A tip from their site says to wash the car seat, stroller, and playpen fabrics before baby comes home.

  17. If I am treating a stain, after its washed I always check to ensure the stain is gone before I put it in the dryer! After its been dried – its there forever!
    Thanks

  18. I always pretreat stains as they happen and let them sit until time to wash. 99.9% of them are easily removed that way.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win.

    Keep supplies in arms reach. Install a shelf above your washing machine and dryer to store all your supplies — spot removers, detergent, bleach, dryer sheets, empty hangers and the like. *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  20. Colored items must be protected by pre-testing the effects of stain removal techniques on a hidden area on the item items must be protected by pre-testing the effects of stain removal techniques on a hidden area on the item is what I learned.

  21. I really don't have much of a tip since this is absolutely the worst chore for me in my house! I try to avoid it as much as possible!

  22. I like to add half a cup of baking soda to my wash. It brightens whites & gets rid of any odors the detergent misses.

  23. My one laundry tip is to rub a little extra detergent into any spots I see on clothes, especially the kid's clothing!

  24. When my son was a baby and toddler I had a diaper pail with dreft solution in which I put all of his laundry to soak. His clothes never had stains on them.

  25. My laundry tip is to put my little ones small stuff animals in a knee high hose and wash it this helps keep it from getting all beat up in the laundry.

  26. To clean the cuffs of coat sleeves, dip them in liquid detergent and let them sit for, at least 15 minutes, before washing.

  27. I learned that Fabric softener may reduce flame resistance when used on children’s clothes was never aware of that

  28. I had never thought of this one…to discard soak solution prior to laundering by running through a rinse cycle. Good tip!

  29. Colored items must be protected by pre-testing the effects of stain removal techniques on a hidden area on the item items must be protected by pre-testing the effects of stain removal techniques on a hidden area on the item, thanks!

  30. After several ordeals I've learned not to put something in the washer if I'm planning on going out for an extended period of time or heading to bed soon.

  31. A tip to clean your washer: Run the machine on hot water, normal cycle, and add a bottle of vinegar to clean the soap film and scum that's built up inside.

  32. My laundry tip- use Shout to treat all stains. I've used many other brands out of curiousity, and I've always ran back to my good ol Shout. It never fails me! Thanks!

  33. 😳 I use tennis balls in the wash to help my daughter's Boppy pillow keep its shape while being cleaned.

  34. My tip would be have a basket for each individual person in the households clothing and items, when taking it to the laundry area it will already be sorted when taking from dryer put back in their own baskets so your task will be done already.

  35. Tip from the dreft website
    When you pre-wash your baby items before baby comes home, do not use fabric softener on these items. Fabric softener may reduce flame resistance when used on children’s sleepwear or other garments labeled as flame resistant.

  36. My tip is to look through the baskets of each person to make sure they didn't leav gum or crayons in their pockets!

  37. i like tip 3

    While no one detergent can remove all types of stains, we recommend the following for greasy, oily stains such as baby lotion, baby oil, liquid vitamins etc:

    * Before treating any garment, always refer to the care label instructions first.
    * Colored items must be protected by pre-testing the effects of stain removal techniques on a hidden area on the item.
    * Pretreat stain with liquid or powder Dreft® before laundering.
    * Launder as usual in warmest water allowed according to garment label using 1 1/2 uses of Dreft®.
    * Line or air dry, and repeat process if needed.

  38. My favorite laundry tip from the Dreft site is when you pre-wash your baby items before baby comes home, do not use fabric softener on these items. Fabric softener may reduce flame resistance when used on children's sleepwear or other garments labeled as flame resistant.

  39. I like the tip If fabric manufacturer suggests the use of laundry detergent to wash these items. Always follow label care instructions for everything that touches your baby's skin.
