Call me crazy, but I am kind of obsessed with doing laundry lately. I have these little rituals and ways of doing things, especially with the diaper laundry. I am constantly looking for that one all natural detergent that's the best, and I think I might have finally found it. My love affair with Charlie's Soap has begun.
Charlie's Soap kindly sent me some products to test out. I got to try an 80 load bag of laundry powder, a 16 load bottle of laundry liquid, a bottle of their all purpose cleaner, and it all came with a green grocery tote.
I had been eyeing Charlie's Soap for quite some time. The first thing that drew me in was the packaging, it has a vintage feel and comes in a cute little drawstring bag. It almost makes me want to get a whole slew of them to line up on the shelves next to my washer and dryer.
Charlie's Soap is safe, non-toxic, and biodegradable. It does NOT contain any lye, brighteners, whiteners, dyes, softeners, petroleum, or perfume. It is safe and effective for all fabrics, including silk, wool, cotton, linen, microfiber, and waterproof gear.
I have been using both the Laundry Liquid and the Powder on all my laundry and I can truthfully say that I am impressed. My clothes are soft and clean, and my diapers do not stink, at all. Not one bit. They clean the heck out of everything all while being safe for my family and the earth.
At $0.19 a load it's fairly priced for a really amazing , safe detergent. I highly recommend it!
Now, onto the all purpose cleaner. The first thing I tried this on was our wood kitchen counter. I try to wipe down the counter often with all natural cleaner so I was really surprised when I used the Charlie's cleaner and it wiped off a ton of dirtiness. It will clean things that you think are already clean. I proceeded to clean my bath tub, sinks, tv stand, coffee table, and pretty much whatever else I could wipe down. This stuff is fabulous!
So, in the end Charlie's Soap blew me away. I love it and I am hooked for life.
