Charlie's Soap Review & Giveaway



Years ago when I first started cloth diapering and was researching how to wash my cloth diapers, I kept running into this detergent called Charlie's Soap over and over again in the cloth diaper community. At the time, I decided not to purchase any of it as what I was using was working. Since then, I've learned that their detergent isn't just for cloth diapers. Instead it can be used for clothes or diapers, and they also have an all purpose cleaner!

Since I was feeling pretty satisfied with my cloth diaper detergent still, I decided to use this instead on my clothes. Now if you remember, I have used and still use a natural cleaner on my clothes. However, my one problem was still having stains. When Charlie's Soap sent along a stain remover, I decided to put it to the test on some of the girl's stained shirts. Oh how I wish I would have taken before and after pictures. I had stains that had been on there for quite sometime that never had come out with even Era, yet the Charlie's Soap took it out in the first wash. My only wish is that it didn't smell like Windex. It is chemical free, but somehow has a bit of a Windex smell to it.



The detergent itself on our clothes worked wonderfully and I can definitely see myself in the future buying more! I love that it is safe, non toxic, and biodegradable.

Buy It!

  15. Charlies Soap recommends cleaning your washer before use by running an initial load. This is because of the additives used by other detergents that leave a residue on everything.
