I bought a new HE Washer & when I was doing research on HE detergents, I decided to go the natural way. I am very sensitive to detergent anyway & I knew they contained harmful ingredients, but I did not know the extent of it! The information I uncovered was nothing short of alarming.
I plan on making my own laundry soap, but I needed to get started with something in the meantime. Charlies Soap seemed to fit the bill for me. I read alot of information online & decided to give it a try. The stuff is GREAT! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it at all.
Also, I have been a faithful user of Downey for many years. I loved the original april fresh pink top formula, but the past few years, it has gradually changed & now it doesn't even seem to be the same product. Well, my problem has been solved with this washing powder... YES, it is true! Although I miss the scent of the old downey, that lingered for days & days, I am happy to have found this great product that eliminates the need for it! The laundry comes out feeling soft & the towels are becoming absorbent once again. I haven't noticed any static cling either.
I now have the ingredients to make my own soap & I will give it a try. But if it comes up short to Charlies, I will remain a loyal customer. Thank you Charlie, for making this great product & thank you drugstore.com for your excellent service!

As with some other 'natural' laundry detergents, this seemed great at first, but the negatives became apparent over time. Whites stared to look dingy, colors faded, clothes start to smell, didn't clean that well. I do like the packaging but that is about it.

    Comments about Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder, 100 Loads, 2.64 lb:

    After comparing multiple environmentally friendly laundry soap options, I was very happy to find Charlie's Laundry Powder. It is incredibly economical, so I was quite skeptical as to how effective it would be. It surpassed my expectations, and is my go-to product for my home and for vacation rentals that we manage.

          I've used this detergent for years and have been very pleased with the results. It is perfect for my very sensitive skin, does not use synthetic fragrances (it is unscented), and cleans well in all temperatures. It is also great in high efficiency washers. It does not remove stubborn stains without a pre-soak or stain treatment, but I can accept that. The large size is very economical and eco-friendly.

                  Our family has multiple allergies, including very severe contact allergies that can result in painful and persistent skin rashes. We searched forever for an effective, hypoallergenic laundry detergent - either it didn't work in the wash or it still caused rashes. Then we found Charlie's and we will absolutely never ever use anything else. Clean, fresh clothes and no allergy worries. This product is a dream come true.

                      I have been using Charlie's for several years. It is simple like Ivory laundry soap used to be back in the day. I have not noticed any fading and do not find it any better or worse for stain removal than any other "natural" laundry products. Clothes are left smelling as they should--clean.

                      I have a grungy little boy and an invalid mother and I prefer soap over detergents for the wash.

                      I have noticed it does not dissolve in cold water like it used to and assume there has been a change in supplier?

                      fyi, plastic tub is better than a cardboard box because the sodium carbonate absorbs moisture from the air and will make the powder clump, I think.

                          Since "discovering" Charlie's Soap a couple of years ago I've found myself actually 100% satisfied with a laundry detergent! My clothes get just as clean as with any other good quality detergent (pretreat when needed), yet Charlie's Soap isn't full of extra ingredients that can irritate skin or are hard on the environment, and there's no strong artificial fragrance. I even use Charlie's Soap in the delicate cycle with great results. My only possible complaint might be that it would be nice if it weren't packaged in plastic. It's such a basic product, and with all the choices out there, it's kind of funny that I end up ordering my laundry powder online rather than just picking something else up at a local retailer. But, since no one in my town carries Charlie's Soap, Drugstore.com gets my business! And kudos to Drugstore for their consistent ease of ordering and lightening fast shipping - always a great shopping experience!

                            This is about the first laundry detergent I've seen that is so minimal. There are truly no fragrances, dyes or additives. I do find that it won't quite remove the stains and extra dirt, so I pre treat or I add a booster to the whites every couple of loads, not every load, only when a booster may be needed, kind of like the soap I used to use. My clothes still look good after three months of use, and yes, I have two young children.

                            I give this 5 stars because it is just as it is described. If you have sensitive skin, or just something that provides low environmental impact, I think this is as good as it gets.

                              I started using Charlie's Soap in 2007 when it was highly recommended with my cloth diapers. It didn't take long for me to switch all of our laundry over to this product!
