    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:

      First, I am not a professional reviewer, just a mom of three active kids. Overall, I have been very impressed with this product. Your clothes come out smelling clean. Not perfumed, not musty, just clean. I have tired every natural product and nothing cleans as well as Tide. But in my effort to prevent the chemicals on my kids and ruin my well water and the environment, this is the best I have found. This does not take out stains or grease marks on your clothes. I have to use a pretreatment in order to remove the stains, but nothing I have ever tried cleans my clothes without pretreating. Except Tide, which I don't use. I have been using this soap for a few months and my clothes are softer, cleaner and have lost that residue that so many detergents leave. If nothing else, it is a great product to clean your machine!

        Recommended by my neighbor, I was skeptical. My grandson has eczema. I was looking for something gentle, dye free, etc. was going to make my own. So glad I found this product. Money saving! NO FABRIC SOFTNER NEEDED OR RECOMMENDED! Amazing! Economical and effective. I do use washing soda as a booster for my towels. Just like with any laundry soap, I do use a spot treatment as necessary.

          I don't typically write reviews but I love this stuff! I'm switching to all natural products and decided to try this. Have been using it for about 6 months now. The clothes are clean! My husband has some smelly t-shirts from working out in the FL heat, one wash with Charlie's Soap and the smell is gone! The clothes are soft (no fabric softener) too. I have front loaders and can't believe how clean my machine stays just by using this soap. With the "store" brand, I had to clean my machine monthly, not anymore. There is no residue from Charlie's so the machine stays clean and fresh. I've experienced no fading of colors and my whites, they're bright.

            I use Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder and Charlie's Soap Booster & Hard Water Treatment together. I wash our towels in these products and am so pleased with the outcome. They are clean and fresh and the colors stay true.
            I also used it when I had some stains on cleaning cloths and was so pleased when the stains came out.
            There was blood on a pillowcase and I used the soap and booster on that and it totally removed the stain. I am very pleased with Charlie's products.

                I've been using Charlie's Soap to do the laundry for the past 7 years or so (ever since my second was born; it's great for baby clothes as well as everybody else's). Although the initial investment seems high, it is ultimately economical -- 1 tablespoon really does work -- and HE-friendly (I have a front-loader). We are 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 cats, and 1 dog in our house, so there's a lot of fuzzy laundry. Charlie's Soap does it all. I like that it isn't heavily perfumed.
                (We also use the liquid soap to clean everything else in the house; I'm a total Charlie's Soap convert. If they made shampoo and bath soap, I'd probably try that too).

                  I am sold on Charlie's Soap! It really gets clothes clean AND soft! I still use some fabric softener, mainly to help eliminate static, but I only have to use 1/2 as much as before, & I use a natural kind. The clothes smell CLEAN...just an old-fashioned clean smell, which I love! The price is economical, & the small container is very easy to handle & store. I also buy Charlie's Booster since I have hard water. The two combined give me as good if not better a level of clean than the most popular grocery store brands, which are also not good for the environment. This is all I buy now!

                    Charlie's soap cleans better than any laundry detergent I have ever used. It leaves no residual scent on clothes and no residual film in washer. I have very sensitive skin and I can tell when there are chemicals on clothes - there are NONE with Charlie's soap.
                    I use no fabric softener with Charlie's soap and yet the clothes do not have static cling and the towels are not rough.
                    I understand that Charlie's soap is also easy on the environment, so there's another plus.
                    I highly recommend this product.
