Are Charlie’s Soap Environmentally-Friendly Cleaning Products Safe?

The world has been getting greener. In the past few years, more and more have made the eco-friendly switch. But all this green living has revealed that some “environmentally-friendly” products are still stuffed with harmful irritants, damaging chemicals, and even carcinogens!

Charlie’s Soap is all about sustainability, but we know there’s more than that when it comes to high-quality cleaning products. That’s why Charlie’s Laundry Powder, Liquid Laundry Detergent, Laundry Pre-Spray Stain Remover, and Kitchen & Bath Household cleaner are safer-choice certified by the EPA. Our products are safe for you and your clothes (and even your washer!)—all while helping the planet.


Charlie’s Soap products are hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. We’ve removed the nasty stuff so our cleaning solutions won’t hurt your lungs with harsh fumes or cause itchiness and rashes on your skin. In fact, our cleaners—right down to the safe and plant-based surfactants—are so gentle that they’re perfect for the most delicate delicates, like cloth diapers. From our natural laundry detergents to our household cleaning products, Charlie’s is perfect for those with sensitive skin, allergies, and asthma. Our ingredients are simple for an effective clean that’s as good for you as it is for the earth.

Charlie’s Soap products are free of:

  • Parabens
  • Irritating perfumes
  • Chlorine bleach 
  • Brighteners
  • Phosphates
  • Dyes
  • Fillers
  • Lye
  • Abrasives

And full of natural cleaning agents that won’t irritate while breaking down stains. 

Your Clothes 

That’s right—Charlie’s Soap is even safer for your clothes. If you’ve ever felt like you’re playing Russian roulette with your stain remover, check out Charlie’s Soap stain solutions. Our stain removers, whether it’s our biodegradable laundry pre-spray or our chlorine-free oxygen bleach, are color-safe, unscented, and perfect for delicate materials such as silk. You can even use them on upholstery and carpets, for an effective, whole-household stain solution that won’t make your house seem like a chemical spill zone.

The best part? They still pack the powerful punch you need to tackle tough stains. Our stain solutions are concentrated, and products like our liquid laundry detergent are designed to break through tough stains and clean fabrics down to the fiber.

Your System

Septic System

Your septic system can take a real hit from your wash cycle. Regular detergents contain chemicals that can eat away at the natural bacteria found in a septic tank. Since septic tanks must maintain a balance of enzymes and bacteria to properly function, the typical detergent can cause big problems in waste disposal. Some products, like regular powder laundry detergents, can build up in your septic system and create clogs—and all the mess that comes along with them.

Not at Charlie’s. Our products, free of harmful chemicals and additives, are safe for your septic system. Yep—even Charlie’s Soap laundry powder and detergent packets. Our products completely wash away, and, since they’re powerful cleaners, you don’t need much. As little as one tablespoon of powder detergent will clean a large load. Less mess, less stress—so you can get back to living life. 


Did you know that laundry products can actually damage your washing machine? Since they don’t completely wash away, excess detergents, fabric softeners, and grime build up in your washer over time and end up on your next batch, leaving you with stiff, scratchy, and smelly clothes. Even worse—the same laundry products that make solutions like washer-cleaning tablets necessary are designed to stick to your clothes. 

Charlie’s Soap doesn’t leave residue behind. With a low suds formula, our products deep clean, remove grime, and dissolve completely, leaving you with soft, clean clothes. Using Charlie’s Soap can actually make your washer cleaner. Another bonus? Charlie’s Soap works well in cold water and HE machines, which can help you save on the power bill.

Hard water can also do a number on your washer. It sticks to the machine’s internal mechanisms and results in the dreaded limescale. Charlie’s Soap has an environmentally-friendly laundry booster for hard water that prevents hard water damage for both your clothes and your washer. You guessed it; it’s also safe for your septic system.
