Charlie’s soap

Charlie’s soap

I finally took Dawn‘s recommendation and bought some Charlie’s Soap Laundry Powder. I’d been wanting to switch to a natural detergent for a while, but I put it off because I had a large bottle of All Free & Clear that I didn’t want to go to waste. Once that was nearly used up (I gave the leftovers to my sister), I placed my order for Charlie’s.

I’ve been using it for about a week now and so far, so good. I didn’t want blab about it on my blog until it passed the cloth diapers test, but it did so and with flying colors. I was a little surprised by how clean the diapers were. I’ve actually been reading some of the product reviews on their site and many people rave about how clean it got their cloth dipes, so I guess I’m not the only satisfied customer. ;)

Charlie’s Soap Laundry Powder “is made with a unique blend of biodegradable coconut-based detergents and high-grade, completely soluble, Green River washing soda.”

It’s reasonably priced too. The size I ordered does 80 loads at 16 cents a load. (And they seem to have thrown in an extra bag for me too – maybe because I’m a first-time buyer? I’m not sure, but I’m not complaining.) You can buy a larger size too that equals out to 10 cents a load. Charlie’s also sells an all-purpose cleaner, though I like to make my cleaners myself.

The bag says “Leaves nothing but the good old-fashioned sweet smell of clean. If you want flowers, go pick some.” :) I like that. I give Charlie’s two thumbs up. :)
