Free to Be a Boy Mom

I love being a boy mom. My son is playful, outdoorsy and full of creative ideas. Along with those wonderful traits come a lot of dirt and stains, as you might imagine. But I don’t worry about how dirty his clothes get when he’s digging in the mud or splashing in puddles thanks to all free clear.

From the time he was a baby, I’ve dealt with stains on his clothes. This outfit… it’s the first outfit he ever wore. We brought him home from the hospital in this. Of course, after having it on for only a few moments, he spit up on it, but you’d never know that.

And thankfully, most of his baby clothes still looked great after all those baby messes. We gave nearly all of his clothes to other families for their children. It felt good to be able to pass them along since they were so well taken care of with all free clear, the #1 recommended detergent brand by pediatricians for sensitive skin.

We also soon realized that he had eczema. Rather than using a separate detergent for his clothes, we switched to one that we could trust for the whole family. all® free clear detergent (liquid and mighty pacs), fabric softener and dryer sheets have received the National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™.

The kiddo loves to wear hats. Fedoras are his favorite, but bucket hats are a close second. And boys can be tough on hats. They get smushed, crumpled and thrown on the ground. We just toss them in the wash on a gentle cycle to get them clean again (although they’re still a little crumpled sometimes). 🙂

So no matter how hard he plays, we know that his clothes will look great. Whether he’s lying on the grass, picking flowers for Mom or Dad, swimming or looking for bugs, how dirty he’s getting is never a concern with all free clear.

What’s your trick to keeping your kids’ clothes looking good enough to pass along to a friend?

We love all free and clear! Perfect for when you have sensitive skin yet gets the dirt out.

All free and clear is pretty much the only thing we have used since my kids were babies. I love that it has no dyes or scents but it's still affordable and they put out a lot of coupons.

They do! And it was so much easier to throw kiddo's clothes in with ours rather than using separate detergents for adult clothes vs. kid clothes.
