I am using normal washing Machine to wash my Boy clothes during his baby time. There too much clothes that I find using the mini machine is not really helping. Other then using the normal machine I just have to ensure that the detergent is the type for baby. you may want to try the brand Pureen (which I find is the cheaper in the market), anyway i used this since my boy & now he is coming to 5 yrs. I only using the detergent when he was 3 yrs then I switch to normal washing powder / detergent.
