As Gentle As You Need It To Be: Dreft

When I had my first child, I distinctly remember loving the smell of her freshly cleaned clothes. A lot has happened since then. I had another child and created a few new websites. Needless to say, we’ve been busy!

Many years later, while cleaning out my son’s closet, I came across a bag of old onesies from both my children. My husband and I made sure to keep a handful of pieces from every size. A clothing scrapbook so to speak. Well, when I opened up that bag of onesies, I got a WHIFF of Dreft detergent and I immediately began to weep.

And when I say weep… I really mean bawl my eyes out. Scent is such an important memory, isn’t it?

Do you have newborns? What detergent do you use?

Besides smelling good, I remember never worrying about allergic reactions. I tend to be very sensitive when it comes to lotions / potions and detergents. But Dreft never gave me or my children a problem. Once less thing to worry about, right?
