Laundry detergents are usually anything but natural, it’s easy to know that just by smelling them. The chemicals in these detergents makes fabrics deteriorate, colors go dull and cause skin irritation and itching for people with more sensitive skin, even exacerbating allergies.
In 1976, Charlie Sutherland Jr. worked with his brother-in-law to create a specific cleaner for the oil and grime of yard spinning machines. That small business flowered into a whole line of cleaning products, one of which is Charlie’s Soap.
This all-natural laundry detergent comes in a powder or liquid, both of which are biodegradable, and does just as good of a job, if not better, at erasing stains and smells from dirty clothes. It won’t make colors fade as quickly or leave a build-up, either, and the powder is cheaper than chemical laundry detergents.
New parents may be especially interested in Charlie’s Soap. Its gentle solution is far better for babies than the harsh chemicals of other detergents – ammonia and phosphorous, to name a couple – which can sometimes result in rashes.
This formula has been around for a few decades and is still going strong. We highly recommend Charlie’s Soap to anyone looking to do laundry for cheaper, without running the risk of wearing itchy clothes afterwards.
