Charlie's Soap: The Giveaway!

Let me get it out now: Oh, how I LOVE Charlie's Soap!





I've been anticipating this post and holding it in for so long. Whew...I feel better.


Charlie's Soap is a blend of natural-based detergents derived from coconut oil...free of dyes, perfumes, and the yucky stuff that most detergents leave behind on your clothing, making it perfect to wash our Baby Boy's cloth diapers in. Besides being non-toxic and biodegradable, Charlie's Soap has met the challenge of keeping the cloth diapers smelling great after each wash load.


And it gets better.


Since we were already users of "free and clear" detergents because of the skin sensitivity issues in our household, I decided to start laundering everything in Charlie's Soap in order to keep the washing machine free of residue build-up left behind by other non-natural detergents. (This is what's recommended by the Charlie's Soap folks.) Our family has continued to stay rash-free and smelling fresh, and our clothing has stayed looking great, too!


And it gets EVEN BETTER!



I recently had the opportunity to try out the Charlie's Soap All-Purpose Cleaner, which is also non-toxic and completely biodegradable. This Cleaner is known to tackle even the toughest "dirt and grime" jobs. It gently removes stains from carpets, laundry, and showers, yet can degrease your car engine safely and effectively! After our recent bathroom remodel (Yes, it's done! And yes, pictures to come this week!), I used the All-Purpose Cleaner to remove the dirt, grime, and dust left behind on the new shower and tub from all of the work that was done. The Cleaner left it looking brand new in a matter of minutes! I just sprayed it on and wiped it right off with a wet cloth...quick and easy!


But you don't have to take my word for it. Just check out the Charlie's Soap website, and you can read up on all of the research that was done on their Laundry Soap and their All-Purpose Cleaner. Nothing but straight facts and honest answers. OH, and while you're there...you might notice the "Black Friday through Cyber Monday Sale!" banner at the top of their home page. It's a great time to get awesome deals on their products!


NOW, you get a chance to win some Charlie's Soap items for yourself! The company is giving one winner the following:

- one bag of Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder
- 16 loads of Charlie's Soap Laundry Liquid (for comparison)
- one sprayer of Charlie's Soap All-Purpose Cleaner
- one Pocket Charlie's (portable version of the All-Purpose)
- one Charlie's Soap grocery tote bag


Deadline to enter is 11:59pm on Friday, December 11th.

The research on http://www.charliesoap.com/research.asp is quite extensive and useful. It really is the best soap you can find on the market. By the way, I like the design of the website too.

OK I want to win this giveaway!!! I LOVE that this detergent is made in the USA and is safe for my baby!!!

It always amazes me when someone invests so little ($200.00 in this case) and it turns into something so big. Remember, I am business minded!
I enjoyed reading about the cleaner, I actually eyeballed it in your house a few days ago wondering....
Must be a good thing since "It cleans everything from false teeth to diesel engines."

Aimee said...

I never heard of this company, but it looks like a great product! Yay for giveaways! :)

Beth Tannatt said...

Um, this stuff looks amazing! I have seen it in the stores and wanted to try it, but didn't know how it would do with the diapers. Now that I know you use, I definitely want to try!!!!! :)

Wow this stuff sounds great! I have been looking into making some detergent but this sounds even better!! I love that it improves the flame retardent on sleepwear, that's great!

Heidi said...

I thought it was interesting that Charlie's Soap continued to improve the flame retardant properties of children's sleepwear after each washing to the point where the fabric would not catch fire at all.

Animals can also benefit by being washed with it - but just keep away from the eyes.

Impressive stuff- it would be worth trying. Green and economical at the same time. I'll see if it can stand up to Tommy the Tsunami. That would be impressive.

I learned that Charlie’s Soap is completely water soluble, so it needs very little water to dissolve it completely. Perfect for my new HE washer!

The best info for me - you can use this on your pets. I cannot find a good, gentle soap for my dogs, but I'd love to give this a try (before they stink us out of the house). (cjohnson2021 {at} hotmail {dot} com

I just started using Charlie's Soap this year, and I love it. It really does make your clothes softer, and it smells great, too. Plus, it's safe for sensitive skin and inexpensive! =)

The laundry powder is made from coconut-based detergents and will whiten and brighten your laundry without just covering up the dirt.
