Not great for odor Review by Sarah
Quality
Value
We used this for our cloth diapers and everything else. It did not do a good job of getting rid of odor. Burp cloths and breast pads stunk! We're much happier using Rockin' Green. (Posted on 5/13/2016)
Not as good in hard water Review by Claire
Value
Quality
The water in Austin, TX isn't hard enough to make folks install a water softener, but it's enough to make it hard for soaps to do their thing. Using Charlie's alone, our diapers eventually ended up retaining that ammonia smell. Ultimately using RLR in addition to detergent helped in our water conditions. (Posted on 7/24/2015)
Not Impressed Review by Aleshia
Quality
Value
I gave this detergent a good 2-3 months. My diapers smell and I did not change anything and have been cloth diapering for 2 years now. I'm switching back to the bumGenius. This detergent is not worth the money for all it "claims" to do. (Posted on 5/26/2015)

Cleans diapers and wipes nicely. Gets the ammonia smell out each time. The container lasts a long time as well! I will definatley continue to use this product. (Posted on 3/17/2015)

Didn't work for us... Review by Cathy
Value
Quality
We used this for about 2 months before it left our diapers smelling like ammonia. The directions say it doesn't disinfect and to use other methods to kill bacteria…I've switched detergents and no long have this problem. (Posted on 3/9/2014)
Start with this! Review by Sara
Value
Quality
We started using Charlies for our cloth because it was the least expensive one on the market and can be found locally if you are in a bind. This works well, and lasts forever since you have to put such a minute amount in the wash. I also add a squirt of Bac Out. Just note that not every detergent works for everyone so don't give up! You will eventually find one that works for your washer and your water type. (Posted on 2/17/2014)
First time changing detergent in a decade. I am obsessed! Review by Nichole
Value
Quality
I had been using the same detergent for over a decade after having a severe allergic reaction to another very mainstream detergent. I was advised by my Cloth 101 teacher to try Charlie's if I personally had sensitive skin. I started using it about a month before my son arrived to clean the washer drum out and try on our clothing. Everything smells fresher. Just clean. I was hesitant that this would work on poo diapers but sure enough no stains and super clean! I also have the booster as we have very hard water in my location within Florida. A tub of this lasts my family of three about two months to two and a half months and we use it for every laundry wash. (Posted on 1/28/2014)
Works fine - Good price Review by Lisa Simmons Thatcher
Value
Quality
We are 3 months in to cloth diapering and so far this is working just fine! We originally went with this over Rockin Green because of the better price. We still wash our clothes in Arm & Hammer Free and use this just for diapers. I tend to use 1/3-1/2 scoop for the pre-soak/wash and then a full scoop for the hot wash. We should probably switch to Charlie's for all of our clothes. (Posted on 11/1/2013)
Good for removing some odors Review by Vanessa
Quality
Value
I originally bought this for cloth diapering and I did use it for washing my diapers prior to first use but I decided to use Rockin Green Funk Rock Ammonia Bouncer and Rockin Green Classic Rock Bare Naked Babies instead after reading reviews. I have used Charlie's for washing our camping gear with a hot wash and a cold extra rinse. It was able to get the smoke smell out of everything except for my husband's thermals. After a second wash, the odor was removed from the thermals as well. (Posted on 6/5/2013)
Pretty good Review by Brianna
Quality
Value
I used Charlie's Laundry Powder for a while on my cloth diapers, and it was alright. It lasts for a long time, which is always nice, and it rinses pretty well, but I did get a little build up after a while and would have to do a few extra rinses from time to time to be sure I got it all. It wouldn't be the first detergent I would recommend, but I wasn't totally unhappy with it. (Posted on 5/6/2013)

Seems to do the job Review by BV
Value
Quality
This is the only soap we've used for diapers, and it seems to work fine. I tried using it for clothes as well but found it left a strange smell. We did not use it exclusively (used another "natural" detergent for our clothes and this for baby's) so that could've been the reason. I think I'll try another brand when this runs out just to compare. (Posted on 12/10/2012)
Not for us Review by Katherine
Value
Quality
I really wanted to like this because it's so inexpensive but it just doesn't work for us. When I used the suggested amount I had to do 8 (!) rinses to get suds free and when I tried using less my diapers were stinky. Now I'm using it for regular clothes and it seems to be fine for that.

Good but not the best Review by Jennie
Value
Quality
Charlie's is on the less expensive side and it definitely does it's job. Great value, just not the best detergent for cloth diapers out there. (Posted on 10/25/2012)
Great detergent, does leave residue Review by Aida
Value
Quality
This detergent certainly does what it claims: strips your washer and leaves your laundry smelling fresh and clean without smelling like fragrance.

Charlies soap does claim that it leaves no residue, however, I found that it does stay in the diapers for even more than one rinse cycle, so just be sure that your rinses are completely suds free or else you'll find yourself having to strip more often, reducing the life of your diapers. Otherwise, fantastic detergent--i find that this price for 80 loads is about the standard.

I love this detergent and use it exclusively on my cloth diapers. They always come out smelling fresh. I've started using it on all my clothes. Try it, you'll like it! (Posted on 6/9/2012)
