I received product in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
Growing up my parents were not really into recycling or healthy products, they did the best they could in the city and that was not how they grew up. I really feel that kids learn from their parents and I want my kids to know there are better choices out there for products and ways of doing things. It is funny how I never thought about chemicals until I had my first child and he was crawling all over and putting everything in his mouth. I started thinking how I should start looking into what I use around our house. Flash forward 16 years later and I still worry as my kids are getting older and now we have a dog who I worry about products around.
Founded back in 1976, Charlie’s Soap was started so families could clean around their houses safely with no chemicals, fragrances or dyes. From the laundry room to the kitchen and even garage, there is a product for whatever mess you need to tackle. All of Charlie’s Soap products are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, residue-free, and are never tested on animals. Perfect for families to have around their households.
I had no clue that there were so many safe products to use all over our house but now love that Charlie’s Soap gives me that chance. I feel like Charlie’s Soap tackles laundry the most with their variety of detergents and stain treatments but there are household cleaners as well.
The Natural Powder Laundry Detergent is a highly-concentrated formula free of dyes, parabens, harmful phosphates, or synthetic fragrances. Only a tablespoon per large load is required and it does not leave any residue behind on your clothes. This is a similar product to their Natural Liquid Laundry Detergent but in powder form, so you can choose whichever format you prefer. Traditional laundry detergents contain harsh chemicals that linger in fabric fibers and cause unnecessary wear and tear on your washing machine but from the first load, Charlie’s Soap starts deep cleaning your clothes.
To start off with stains, the Laundry Pre-Spray breaks down and lifts away even the most stubborn of stains without fading colors without harsh chemicals. You apply a few sprays and leave it for 30 minutes or longer for set-in stains. The spray is free of harsh chemicals, solvents, synthetic dyes, and fragrances, meaning it’s easy on your clothes and the environment.
Next up is a product to help if you have hard water. We live in an unincorporated area with well water and even though we have a water softener I notice our whites are not the brightest, especially as we get low on salt. The Laundry Booster for Hard Water is used in combination with laundry detergent to give it a boost in removing build-up on clothes and your machine. It is fragrance-free, gentle on skin, and each 2.64 lbs bag can treat up to 160 loads of laundry. It can take several wash cycles to remove the initial hard water build up in your clothes, but after just a few laundry days, you’ll see your laundry detergent work harder with noticeably brighter, softer, and exceptionally clean clothes, without the need for bleach, brighteners, or fabric softeners.
Speaking of brighter clothes, the Oxygen Bleach: Non-Chlorine Bleach is Charlie’s Soap’s version of a bleach that is a safe and natural non-chlorine bleach that whitens, brightens and eliminates odors. It is an ultra-concentrated non-chlorine bleach that naturally releases safe peroxide and oxygen to tackle tough stains and remove odors. You can also dissolve a little into a spray bottle filled with tap water, and you can clean all over your house to disinfect and stain-fight. I really like that there is no burning chemical smell like traditional liquid bleach.
Need help outside of your laundry room? The Indoor & Outdoor Surface Cleaner is a toxic-free all-purpose cleaner is powerful enough to handle stubborn outdoor stains like grills and siding and decks, and gentle enough for delicate indoor surfaces like tubs and tile. I love that I can use safely around my house on practically every surface without worrying about changing cleaners as I go.
I love that Charlie’s Soap is dedicated to producing the highest quality biodegradable, environmentally safe products possible for families to use around their house. As parents we have enough to worry about that cleaning products shouldn’t be one of them. We all want a safe home and environment for our children to grow up into.
