When should I start washing my newborns clothes?
While there’s no hard-and-fast rule on the best time in pregnancy to wash baby clothes, the expert consensus is that all baby clothes should always be washed before they’re worn. Newborns have sensitive skin and it’s not known who has handled bub’s clothing before you purchased it.
How do you dry newborn clothes?
When it comes to drying, again, refer to the instructions on the tag. (Usually, it will say ‘tumble dry low,’ which means just throw it in the dryer on low heat as opposed to hang-drying.) A low heat tumble dry is usually the safest setting for anything you don’t want to shrink.
Do you dry baby clothes with dryer sheets?
There’s no need to use dryer sheets for baby clothes, but if you do use them use something suitable for sensitive skin, without strong perfumes. Baby clothes can also be dried on a clothes line.
