So you know how sometimes you just have to change up your shampoo or hair product to refresh your routine? I think cloth diaper laundry detergent is like that too… you’re going along, content with the product you have, but… you could use a little something… different for a change…
About the Company:
I was excited to get to review Charlie’s Soap from Charlie’s Soap For You, an online retailer of cloth diaper laundry detergent. What’s great about this retailer (NOTE: they do not manufactur Charlie’s Soap!) is they are dedicated to giving you the best price and best customer service on Charlie’s Soap since they only sell this one brand. They carry single size items, and bulk packages. Best of all, orders over $25 have free shipping – and we all know how detergent shipping can get expensive, right?
Charlie’s Soap has been around for nearly 30 years, and is made with no dyes, phosphates, UV brighteners or perfumes and is hypoallergenic! The fact that it leaves no residue makes this detergent perfect for cloth diapers! Oh, and you’ll have fun reading the details on the label – these guys have a sense of humor and they are honest, telling you they WILL refund your money if you’re not satisified, but they will NOT be happy about it! LOL!
I was loving life when I received my package from Charlie’s Soap for You. This was like a full-scale test drive, moms. Not only did I test Charlie’s Soap liquid detergent and powder detergent, but also I tried their all-purpose cleaner. It was a veritable science lab in my basement!
Charlie’s Soap Laundry Powder comes in a sturdy canister – not a plastic bag that will rip or fall over while you’re trying to scoop out some powder. And they provide a sized measuring scoop! The powder is basically a concentrated form of the liquid, which is why you only need 1 Tablespoon. I accidentally forgot to put a scoop in my pre-wash the first time I did the laundry (oh those experimental variables), but my diapers were clean-smelling (that is, they smelled like NOTHING) when I pulled them out.
Charlie’s Soap Liquid has a faintly sweet smell, but by the time your laundry is done – nothing but clean! I’ve been using the liquid and the powder formulas interchangeably on all my laundry, not just cloth diapers. It’s been a refreshing switch-up in my laundry routine and works wonderfully!
One cool thing about the liquid is it removes “entrapped” odors, like those stuck in athletic wear – you know how workout clothes smell great after they are washed because of all the perfumes in detergents, but then when you wear them they start to stink right away? That’s because the odors are “entrapped” and your body heat releases them. So you need to get those odors OUT, not just cover them up with perfumed detergents.
And I am loving the All-Purpose Cleaner – I have been looking for something non-toxic to clean the tile in my bathtub as everything I tried still left a film on the tile. After spraying the tile with full-strength Charlie’s Soap All-Purpose Cleaner and letting it sit, I easily wiped down the tub. It felt smooth and clean. Love it! After all, if Charlie’s Soap can remove pitch and tar from machines, my tub is probably a piece of cake – actually, I can’t wait until summer, because I alway get tar on my car – I am going to try Charlie’s Soap on that mess! You can also dilute the cleaner by 1/2 or 1/4 to have a cleaning solution for various household items!Oh it’s good to be clean!Buy it: You can buy your own discounted Charlie’s Soap Laundry Detergent and All-Purpose Cleaner at Charlies’ Soap for You
