The Green Mommy: Charlies Soap Powder

Posted by Lily Kay at 3:15 PM

In my quest to be more green and because I have been dabbling in cloth diapering lately I decided I needed to try out a more eco friendly laundry detergent. A quick search on my shopping bible otherwise known as Amazon led me to Charlies Soap Powder. First thing I noticed is the rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 with 315 ratings. This is an instanst plus in my world. Next, I saw the words 'non-toxic' and 'safe for the environment'. Getting closer to the purchase button I saw that I could get 80 loads worth for only a little over 10 bucks with Subscribe and Save. Ok sold.


Pros:
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Non-Toxic
  • Biodegradable
  • No fragrance which aids in preventing skin irritations
  • Perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers
Potential Cons:
  • No Tide fresh smell here people however dont' worry your clothes are clean! The laundry detergent industry has done an excellent job of making us think that if our clothing doesn't smell like lavender and waterfalls its not clean.
  • No softening effect on clothing. I dont' use dryer sheets so I noticed my clothes are a bit stiffer with this soap however this is a small sacrafice one must make in the laundry washing world if you are aiming to be more green.
Charlie's Soap Powder is here to stay for me and my quest to be a green mommy. Do you use any type of green soap?
