    washing clothes for kids

    Can I just point out that I constantly meet women who say…. ‘oh I’m not doing all my washing on erev rosh chosen, I wash during the nine days coz I have young kids’.
    Even though you MAY wash in the nine days, please remember you MAY not do so lechatchila, only when you need to. I.e. you’ve run out of clothes.
    So wash everything today, and when you run out… Then you MAY wash again.

    the nitei gavriel brings many sources……any washing done purely for hygeine is allowed. if someone is dirty he should wash in cool water (doesnt have to be freezing) and if he needs a little soap in the areas where he sweats he can. preferable not to wash entire body at once.

    All these rules are very strong minhagim – but no more than that. There are no ‘it is forbidden/permitted’ edicts. it says so in the kitzur.

    Not true.
    And it does NOT say that in Kitzur.
