    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:

    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).

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

      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.

              May need extra stain removal, but what laundry product doesn't at times. This product will be a $$ saver. Bought because my 3 yr old grandson has eczema, now I use it for all our laundry!

                I use this only to wash cloth diapers, not for our clothes. I've used it for 2 babies so far, and the diapers are clean every time - no stains or smells. I hate the artificial scent of some laundry soaps, and this leaves no scent at all. This is an excellent product. Just a tablespoon of soap sprinkled on the load and they're all clean. Easy!

                  I have sensitive skin and like this product because it's fragrance free and cleans very well in cold or warm water. It takes up less room on the shelf and cleans better than the name brand liquid detergents that are fragrance free. I have never used fabric softener due to allergies and my laundry feels much softer than before I started using this product. However, it does not dissolve easily in the bathroom sink, so I don't use it for hand laundry or travel.

                    A friend of mine recommended this detergent to me when I was shopping around for something safe to use on cloth diapers. It was a little expensive, but I tested it out and haven't gone back to any thing else since.
                    As the product clearly says, there isn't any scent. So expect that. Your clothes won't come out smelling like lavender, but they WILL come out clean.
                    It is gentle enough for cloth diapers; I've been using Charlie's Soap on my daughter's diapers for a year and running now.
                    I use it to spot treat stains and underarm icky-ness. Just wet the area, sprinkle the detergent on and scrub in a bit. Then I launder as normal. I haven't had to repeat the procedure yet.
                    And although the price is a little steep, keep in mind it will last for months. I generally wash a load a day and one tub keeps me supplied for at least two months.

                        As a whole family with sensitive skin, one person with very severe skin allergies, Charlie's Soap Powder is our miracle. The only reason I don't give it five huge stars is that it isn't automatically effective on stains, BUT soaking stained items pre-wash in a more concentrated solution with Charlie's Soap Powder works on almost all stains. It's also incredibly awesome for cloth diapers - our very well-used cloth diapers look brand new.
