Between grass stains, messy dinners and diaper fails, kids make laundry more than a little challenging. We know you’re looking for a detergent that gets the job done without a lot of hassle. So we put a range of original formula liquid detergents to the test to bring you a list of the best laundry detergents out there. In our Today’s Parent Approved lab, we stained pre-washed 100-percent cotton white onesies with a range of messes—sweet potato puree, grass, mud, coffee and more—and then hit the laundromat to see how well detergents tackled the stains in a cold water wash. Plus we asked families to use the detergents at home and give us their feedback on how well it performed. Here are the detergents that made the cut to get the Today’s Parent Approved seal.
