Charlie's Soap Review and Giveaway!


I was pleased when Charlie’s Soap agreed to send me some of their product for a review, since I had been hearing some good things about this soap and wanted to try it for myself. I received a bag of the Laundry Powder, and a pocket size bottle of spray of Charlie’s.




Charlie’s Soap is an eco-friendly line products. Their products are made in the USA and are both non-toxic and bio-degradable. This detergent works to clean clothes thoroughly, and not leave behind the residues that most laundry detergents do. This is why the folks at Charlie’s advise new users to run an initial load 3 times, in order to ensure the residues from other detergents are removed from your washer. I put some especially discolored whites in for this triple treatment, and I must say even after the first washing, I saw a noticeable difference. By the third time through, some of the items that I had pretty much given up on, were now a sparkling white (bleach was not used by the way). And if you cloth diaper this is great detergent!
We have a front loader and wash in cold, so I was originally a bit skeptical about washing with a powdered detergent. I have been using liquid  for years now and mainly because the powder never seemed to do good in cold water. There was no need to be concerned. Both the liquid and powder versions of Charlie’s Soap are formulated to perform in cold water, as well as, at warmer temperatures. I used the small bottle of spray of Charlie’s, to help with stains which I thought might be particularly stubborn, and it worked just as well as the stain spray I have used in the past, which is loaded with scary chemicals.


I will be using Charlie's Soap again. I love the over all performance on my clothes and whites. No wonder all those cloth diapering mom's recommend it! Plus with us having eczema and this detergent being hypoallergic is a major plus!

Charlie's Soap has offered to give one lucky reader a 17 oz sprayer of all purpose and a 80 load of laundry powder! Open to US Residents Only!
