If your baby is allergic to perfumes and scents, then you should probably use Charlie’s Soap. This amazing product is residue-free and unscented. It is made from naturally derived washing soda and coconut oil. It is biodegradable, which makes it the perfect choice for moms who are advocates of green cleaning.
Charlie’s Soap is new in the market. However, it has become a viable option for eco loving mothers due to its non-toxic formula. It is highly concentrated and can get rid of all kinds of stains. This detergent could be used for cloth diapers and in High Efficiency (HE) washers.
I started using Charlie’s Soap when I switched to cloth diapers for my first born son. A friend of mine recommended this product, which she personally tried. And I thought; why not give it a try? I bought a small bottle, which costs around $11. Following the instructions on the label, I was able to wash a full load using only two tiny caps full of Charlie’s Soap.
On the other hand, there are plenty of negative reviews about Charlie’s Soap. I have one myself. This product is actually ineffective in cleaning stains and getting rid of odor on its own. You have to combine it with several other products to thoroughly clean your garment as you’ve preferred.
I have read several complaints online regarding this product about causing irritation. Charlie’s Soap’s debate with Diaper Jungle is still unresolved and on fire. According to a review article posted in Diaper Jungle’s website, the baby suffered “terrible burns” from using this soap. Charlie’s Soap’s management has already given their response and provided a solution. No specific details have been released other than that.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of eco friendly products you could try. Mountain Green Ultra Baby, Ecos Liquid Laundry Detergent, and BabyGanics are just a few baby safe, environmentally friendly brands you could use. Made from naturally derived ingredients, these are perfect choices to use on your baby’s clothes.
