When it comes to washing my baby’s clothes, I have to be a smart mom. Baby skin is more sensitive than ours, which means we have to use products that are specially made for them. So, I was so happy when Smart Steps sent me a basket full of their products several weeks ago.
I’m no stranger to the brand. I first learned about Smart Steps around 5 years ago when our Ziggy was still a baby. We used their products then and loved them. Now that we have a new baby, Zander, in the house, of course we’re using their products yet again.
Smart Steps is a brand of baby laundry detergents and cleansers that are not only specially made for baby’s sensitive skin but are also pocket-friendly for moms on a budget. Their product line includes the following:
Smart Steps Powder and Liquid Detergent
These products can be used to hand wash or soak your baby’s clothes in. They are hypoallergenic and has no phosphates, dyes or optical brighteners usually found in regular detergents.
Smart Steps Fabric Softener
This softener recovers the natural softness in baby’s clothes without the heavy dyes.
We send 90% of our laundry to our suking laundry shop because we have no laundry area in our apartment. We put our baby’s clothes in a separate bag though so that the laundry shop staff will know that they must be washed separately. We also provide them with our own laundry detergent and fabric softener to make sure that our baby’s clothes come back as clean and as gentle as possible. Of course, we sent them Smart Steps detergent and fabric softener. The baby clothes came back really clean and soft. I don’t need to worry about Zander getting an allergic reaction to them at all.
Smart Steps Laundry Detergent Bar
This is the brand’s newest addition to their product line. It doesn’t have harsh chemicals so it has a mild formula that can remove tough stains on baby’s clothes such as breast milk or poop stains. It’s in a very handy form to spot clean clothes easily and has a delightful powdery scent. Also, it only costs Php 34.00.
We don’t send the detergent bar to the laundry shop anymore. Instead, I use this at home to wash Zander’s clothes whenever he has poop accidents, which is common when you have a baby! I love that this bar really cleans clothes easily and is also gentle to my hands.
Smart Steps Baby Bottle Cleanser
I am exclusively breastfeeding Zander but occasionally I let him drink expressed breastmilk from a bottle whenever I have to leave him at home for a few hours. I love that this cleanser doesn’t smell like soap at all but can strip off milk stains easily with its Easy Rinse Formula. It’s made of plant based ingredients too so you can be sure no chemicals will be left in your baby’s bottle.
Smart Steps Stages Anti-Mosquito Patch
We have to very wary of Dengue and Zika. I have become more vigilant about this after my daughter had a bout of dengue fever last year. So now I make sure my kids use this anti-mosquito patch whenever we go out. I love to use this patch because you just need to stick it on your kids’ clothes. No need for lotions or creams that may contain ingredients that can irritate their skin.
With these Smart Steps products, you can be a smart mom too because you can make sure your baby stays healthy and protected without breaking the bank!
