PRODUCT: for Moms and Moms-to-be


Finding a good laundry detergent is tough, especially if you have kids! Now try choosing one that is not only safe and gentle on your skin but is eco-friendly as well, and the choices really seem to diminish…

Thankfully you only need to find one – and Charlie’s Soap could just be it (if it isn’t already)!

Keep reading to find out more…


THE COMPANY:
Although not technically a soap (see “THE PRODUCTS” section below), Charlie’s Soap was started almost 40 years ago as a detergent for the textile industry. It worked so well, the workers from the plants started stealing it. Since everyone knew Charlie Sutherland, Sr., they started calling it that – and the name stuck [although it was Charlie Sutherland, Jr. who technically created the product…]


THE PRODUCTS:
Charlie's Soap is a blend of natural-based surfactants (detergents) derived from coconut and mineral oils, salts and water (Laundry Liquid) or pure washing soda (Laundry Powder). As opposed to detergents, real soaps are made from heating a variety of oils treated with caustic soda (lye) or pot ash.  Furthermore, real soaps do not bind to water very well, which is why they have a tendency to leave a residue.

Made from various biodegradable ingredients and natural mineral ingredients Charlie's Soap’s not only surpass the thresholds for “ultimate biodegradation”, they have also been approved by the USDA for use around food preparing surfaces and are non-toxic.

Many other "green" detergents use extra chemicals to augment their cleaning agents. These are things such as (but are not limited to): oleic acid, sodium hydroxide, boric acid, protease and amylase, glycerin, calcium chloride, sodium chloride, citric acid, methylisothiazolinone and benzisothiazolinone … you get the idea.

Charlie's Soap contains and needs NONE of these chemicals, nor any chemicals like them. This includes: no baking soda, no zeolites, no fragrances, no bleach, no anti-foaming agents, no essential oils, no thickening agents, and no enzymes. Charlie’s Soap stands on its simple formula for superior cleaning and safety.

List of Charlie's Soap Products:

  • Laundry Powder
  • Laundry Liquid
  • Laundry Pre-Spray
  • Indoor/Outdoor Surface Cleaner
  • Kitchen and Bath Household Cleaner
  • Booster & Hard Water Treatment

PRICE:
With most of Charie’s Soap products available in 2-packs, bulk and/or concentrate, you will soon realize that a little goes a VERY long way! So while products may seem a bit on the higher side at first, you will quickly realize that Charlie’s Soap is definitely worth it!


WHERE TO BUY:
You can purchase Charlie’s Soap via their Online Store, or at select retailers nationwide.


FINAL THOUGHTS:
While being picky about the products that you put on your skin, face and hair have become the norm – wanting ones that are preservative and chemical-free – many people still don’t give any thought to what they wash their laundry with. This is crazy [to me] since your clothes actually spend more time in contact with your skin then your body wash and shampoos do – and will have far more contact with your little ones as well!

For this reason, among others, choosing a laundry detergent that will not only clean your clothes effectively, but in the “greenest and safest” manner as possible really is of the utmost importance!

Thankfully, I was introduced to Charlie’s Soap and have realized what a great product it really is! From their Laundry Powder and Pre-Spray to their other various household cleaners, not only are their products super effective, they smell great, are safe on the environment and most importantly are safe around you and your most precious family members – babies and pets included! Plus, a little goes a LONG way, so you can really feel like you’re getting your money’s worth every time you use it!

Try any or all of Charlie’s Soap products today and tell me if you aren’t completely satisfied with how effective they really are!
