Since I started using Charlie's soap over a year and a half ago I have had wonderfully clean laundry (and cloth diapers) I love the many many uses I have found for my Charlie's besides just laundry (i use it in the dishwasher in the yard to clean tubs and showers)
Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder
Pros: great for cleaning clothes
Pros: No bad ingredients, gentle for baby, inexpensive, no perfume, cleans everything
Cons: Have to buy online
I started using this when I had a baby and it was the perfect choice. We used it fro everything, including cloth diapers, and it gets everything clean. I stopped using it in the last six months just due to convenience but after seeing the reviews and remembering how wonderful it is , I think I have to get it again. What I changed to just doesn't clean as well. I highly recommend this especially for cleaning cloth diapers which can be very tricky. At least give it a try. Another great bonus is that it lasts forever and you need very little per load.
I first tried the little bag of Charlie's Soap and a gallon of the liquid to see if it was as good as everyone else said it was and after a week had ordered the big bucket. My parents have also started to use it after they stayed with us for a bit.
I use it on all of our clothes and the cloth diapers for the boys. I use it in cold, warm and hot water. It gets everything so clean and works wonderfully. The price seems a bit scary for the big bucket at first, but I've been using it for over a year now and there's still plenty in it. We had been going through one or two things of detergent from the store a month before.
After I had been using Charlie's for a few months I ran across a guest towel that hadn't been washed with it yet and the thing smelled horrible to me! We hadn't been able to find an unscented detergent for a long time and had gotten used to it, but after using Charlie's for so long the smell on that towel was awful!
I'd never go back.
