I was actually excited to do this review because I am currently using Purex Free & Clear and wanted to stick with what is working for now, assuming Purex Baby would be well, free and clear.
When I opened the package, I must say I was disappointed. Sure, there's no dyes in this detergent, but there are perfumes. I'm just not understanding their logic here. If I don't use detergent that has perfumes and dyes on my clothes, why would I want to use those on my baby's clothes?
Don't be fooled. Here's the breakdown comparing Purex Free & Clear and Purex Baby: They are both Hypoallergenic and Dermatologist tested. They both have the exact same ingredients, except the Purex Baby also has added perfume. Babies already smell good, why would you want to cover up that smell? (Change their diaper if they don't smell good!)
My infants all suffered from eczema, so the last thing I would want to put on their precious baby skin or to clean their yucky baby stains with would be perfumes and dyes.
I'm sorry Purex, but Purex Baby wouldn't be my choice for my baby's clothes, and it wasn't for my own clothes. (I haven't used the bottle they sent me. I'm still trying to decide what I will do with that.) I also will be discontinuing my use of Purex when all my samples of Free & Clear are gone, as I noticed it contains EDTA, something we are trying to steer clear of in our home.
