Charlie's Soap- Best Laundry Detergent Ever!

     Charlie's Soap Laundry Liquid - 1 Gal Jug - (128 Loads)

My son was getting hives last week and we weren't sure why. I decided that it could be the laundry detergent I was using (the free Xtra detergent I got awhile ago) so I wanted to rewash all of his clothes in something else. The only thing that I had on hand without fragrance in it was my Charlie's Soap Laundry Liquid that I bought a few years ago when I was cloth diapering my son.

After rewashing all of his clothes I noticed something amazing- my front loader washing machine no longer smelled! The Charlie's Soap removed the moldy smell (a common problem in front loaders) and it also removed all of the residue from the inside of the machine. There used to be mold around the rubber gasket that would appear after I ran a wash but that was gone too! I swear, the inside of the machine is gleaming new.

The clothing also came out way clean too. It is more fluffy than it was with regular detergent and it smells clean- just clean and not like any perfumes. I have been washing all of our clothing in Charlie's Soap and a pair of pants of mine that smelled musty now smell clean. I washed these pants in our old detergent at least ten times in hot water and could not get the smell out and after only one wash with the Charlie's Soap they smelled  like clean pants.

I am not a "green" person but this stuff is also good for the environment.

I am so annoyed with myself because the bottle of Charlie's Soap has been sitting on a shelf for years while I continued to use other detergents that were leaving residue all over my clothing and washing machine.

The best price I could find for the one gallon jug was on Amazon for $20 with free shipping. Each jug cleans 128 loads (you only use 1/4 cup per load) so this comes out to about .15 cents a load. Not the best price for us couponers but the performance is so much better than what I can get cheap that I am willing to shell out a bit more. If you use Amazon gift cards earned through Swagbucks you can make it an even better deal. They also have 5 gallon buckets of the liquid and a powder version available.
