Be kind to your baby and the planet at the same time. This specially formulated earth-sensitive detergent, with boosters and stain fighters included, cleans and removes the toughest stains with a clean-rinse formula that leaves no irritating residue behind. Because anything that comes into contact with a baby’s skin needs to be gentle and sensitive, we’ve had this detergent tested by pediatricians, dermatologists, and allergists.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can the inside of a washing machine ever get dirty?
Some ingredients used by other detergent manufacturers can build up inside a washing machine. This can especially be a concern at public laundromats. LEGACY OF CLEAN™ detergents don’t leave any residue on your clothes or in your washer. So every time you wash your clothes with LEGACY OF CLEAN detergents, you’re cleaning your washer!
How can I clean the inside of a washing machine?
It’s very easy. Use two scoops of LEGACY OF CLEAN Concentrated All Fabric Bleach. Set the temperature to “Hot” and the load size to “Large.” Run the complete wash cycle. This is especially important at public laundromats.
I have a smell coming from the inside of my HE washing machine. Is it from LEGACY OF CLEAN products?
No. Dirty water can sit in the bottom of an HE washer between cycles. So even if you’re using LEGACY OF CLEAN products, it would be a good idea to clean your washer once a month using All Fabric Bleach.
Many products claim to be safe and “green.” What proof do you have?
We have partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Designed for the Environment program. Many of our formulas and ingredients have already been reviewed by the EPA and third-party accreditation contractors to meet their goals for safety.*
We’re also a participant in the A.I.S.E. (International Association for Soaps, Detergents, and Maintenance Products) “Charter for Sustainable Cleaning.” As a participant, we voluntarily commit to follow this industry initiative for continual improvement in sustainability. Each phase of the product’s life cycle (raw material selection, chemical safety, resource use, occupational health and safety, and advice to customers on how best to use the products) is assessed, reviewed, and externally verified. The goal? Being a trendsetter and role model for continual improvement in sustainability for the entire cleaning products industry.
*EPA/DfE recognition does not constitute endorsement of this product. The Design for the Environment logo signifies that the formula for this product, as Amway has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive health and environmental characteristics than conventional cleaners. EPA/DfE relies solely on Amway, its integrity and good faith, for information on the composition, ingredients, and attributes of this product. EPA/DfE has not independently identified, i.e., via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of Amway’s non-ingredient claims. EPA/DfE expresses its judgment and professional opinion only as to the environmental and human health characteristics of the product, based on currently available information and scientific understanding.
What does “PLANET POSITIVE™” mean?
LEGACY OF CLEAN products are super-effective, but they’re also PLANET POSITIVE – meaning they have less impact on the environment when used as directed. So rest assured that while you’re making things cleaner, safer, and brighter in your home, you’re doing the same for your planet.
Is this product safe for septic systems?
Yes, all LEGACY OF CLEAN products are septic safe. They won't cause sludge to form or disrupt the natural bacteria that keeps your septic system working.
What can cause the detergent to clump or not dissolve properly?
If you add your laundry to the washing machine before adding your detergent or if you tightly pack your laundry into the machine, pockets can be formed that keep the detergent from proper contact with water. To avoid this issue, start filling your washing machine with water, then add your detergent, and add your laundry last.
Does SA8 Baby contain any dyes or fragrances?
Yes, SA8 Baby is lightly scented with the smell of baby powder and does contain dye as well.
What is "Activated Oxygen" bleach?
SA8 Baby contains a non-chlorine bleach for maximum stain removal. Unlike traditional chlorine bleach, oxygen bleach will not fade colors or weaken fabrics. It is also recognized as being safer for people and the environment when used as directed. SA8 Baby also contains an oxygen bleach "activator." This ingredient allows the bleach to remove stains better at lower wash temperatures. With the activator, stain removal in "warm water" (90°F) is approximately the same as in "hot" (120°F) water without an activator.
