FAQ

Dreft helps get rid of stains, spots, and question marks.

While not super-difficult, washing baby’s clothes differs slightly from your usual load. Check out the answers to some Dreft-related questions you may have below.

Q:

Can I use Dreft for my children’s many laundry needs?

A:
  • You bet! The Dreft formula is appropriate for all of your family’s laundry needs. Except folding. That’s up to you guys.
  • Dreft’s new portfolio of products is specially designed to meet your little one’s laundry needs at every stage of babyhood. Dreft Stage 1: Newborn's hypoallergenic formula is gentle on newborn baby’s skin. And Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby is specially formulated to tackle stains after baby starts eating solid foods and crawling all over the place. And don’t forget Dreft Blissfuls! You can use these scent boosters on any load of your family’s laundry, even with baby clothes. So yeah, Dreft really does have you covered – all of you.
Q:

Can I wash cloth diapers in Dreft?

A:

Absolutely. Dreft has been tested on 100% cotton and cotton/polyester blends, and we can say for sure that it is safe to use on all fabrics. We have also clinically tested Dreft to be gentle on your baby’s skin, making Dreft a great choice for any cloth diapers.

Q:

Liquid or powder?

A:

Both! Liquid detergents are better at removing oily and greasy stains. They're also fantastic for pretreating stains. When it comes to mud and clay, powder is your detergent for the job. But really, it comes down to picking the one that meets your needs best, which is a nice way of saying, buy both!

Q:

I love Dreft, but does anyone else recommend it?

A:
  • Dreft is the brand recommended most by pediatricians for baby laundry. And they went to many, many years of medical school!
  • In addition, Dreft is the #1 dermatologist recommended baby detergent brand for use on baby clothes and the #1 brand of baby detergent used by dermatologists on baby clothes in their own home.
  • Dreft is also the best selling baby detergent among moms. Thanks moms!
Q:

So how long should I use Dreft for my child’s laundry? Please say forever!

A:
  • Actually, Dreft has a product for all stages of babyhood. Dreft Stage 1: Newborn's hypoallergenic formula is gentle on newborn baby’s skin, and Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby is specially formulated to be tough on those classic active baby stains, like stains from dirt, grass and solid foods.
  • But why stop there? Use Dreft Blissfuls in-wash scent boosters with every laundry load (even with baby clothes!), so everyone in the family can get a burst of that Dreft baby fresh scent we all love.
Q:

Will Dreft detergent products work in my High Efficiency (HE) washing machine?

A:

Absolutely! Dreft detergents are designed to work in both standard and high efficiency (HE) washing machines, so you use Dreft products no matter what kind of washing machine you have.

Q:

Do you have a laundry performance cheat sheet to help me get the most amazing clean ever?

A:

Of course! Here are some step by step tips that'll help you get great cleaning results:

  • *Sort fabrics before laundering and wash similar colors together.
  • *Pretreat those oh-so obvious stains (See our Laundry Tips).
  • *Follow the fabric care tag laundering instructions on your garments.
  • *Don't just toss clothes in the machine like a madman. Be careful. We suggest:
  • - Add Dreft®
  • - Then add clothes
  • *Use the amount of Dreft recommended. Use more Dreft if you have large loads, or heavy soils.
  • *Respect your washer or dryer. Don't overload it.
Q:

Can I wash in cold water? I mean my clothes, not myself.

A:

Yep. Dreft detergents offer great cleaning in cold water. But as with any detergent, follow the cleaning instructions from the garment manufacturer. For best results on oily/greasy stains, use warmer water.

Q:

Scientific stuff aside, how is Dreft formulated for my baby laundry needs?

A:

Dreft is now better than ever at meeting your baby’s laundry needs at every stage of babyhood. Dreft Stage 1: Newborn's hypoallergenic formula is gentle on fabric, leaving baby clothes soft next to baby’s skin. And Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby tackles laundry needs at the next stage of babyhood – it’s specially formulated to fight pesky baby and toddler stains, with mild ingredients that are still gentle on sensitive skin.
