Charlies Soap Review and Giveaway!



Hey Neighbors,


Here's a nice Fall product!  Charlie's Soap!  I love the Fall days when the weather is just a bit nippy, and you have a great breeze for drying clothes on the line.  I received some samples of Charlie's Powdered Soap and the Pocket Charlie's stain remover.  I have to say I really like the stain remover!  With 6 children we often have spills that result in stains!  Charlie's Soap works great!  And of course it is environmentally safe and hypoallergenic. 




Now, I was not able to use the detergent several times in one washer so that all the previous detergent was removed.  Unfortunately we have to do our laundry in town.  Thus I am constantly using different machines.  But you can still tell a difference. 


First time users:


I'm a first time user of Charlie's Soap. What should I do to make sure I have the best experience with Charlie's Soap?
  • Run a large empty load with double the amount of Charlie's Soap and maybe a few old rags to clear your washing machine of any residue left by other detergents.
  • Garments may have to be washed a few times before all the residues are removed and you notice benefits of Charlie's Soap - low suds, softness, scent free, etc. You will not need fabric softeners.
Soap or Detergent?


Is Charlie’s Soap a “soap”, or is it a “detergent”?
  • Charlie’s Soap is really a blend of natural-based surfactants (detergents) derived from coconut oil, treated with a product of natural gas (real soaps are treated with caustic soda or pot ash), and salts in water (Laundry Liquid) or pure Green Mountain washing soda (Laundry Powder).
  • There is a good reason that it is called Charlie’s Soap and not Charlie's Detergent. Thirty plus years ago, the product was first created for the textile industry. It worked so well that workers in the plants started stealing it. And, they eventually found their way over to our office asking for it. Everyone in the textile plants knew Charlie Sutherland, Sr., and so they started asking for some of Charlie’s “soap”, not knowing the chemical difference between soaps and detergents. Charlie Sutherland, Jr. actually created the product, but it’s not his name on the bottle. After years of trying to name the product everything under the sun, the name “Charlie’s Soap” just stuck.
I highly recommend Charlie's Soap to my neighbors At the Fence.  Try Charlie's Soap and see what you think.


Charlie's Soap is giving the winner of this giveaway an 80 load bag of laundry powder, a 17oz sprayer of all purpose and a grocery tote bag.

All the products look good. My favorite may be the laundry powder. It only takes a Tablespoon to wash a load and I like the packaging.
