Benefits of Unscented Laundry Detergent

You can’t walk down the laundry aisle without dozens of scents jumping out. It seems that everything is manufactured to bring a different romantic landscape to your clothes. So, what’s the problem? Well, scented laundry soaps are full of perfumes, additives, and chemicals to get those scents—which can mean problems for you, your laundry, and the planet. Plus, a true clean has no smell. That’s why, at Charlie’s Soap, we’re experts on unscented. Today, let’s talk about the benefits of unscented laundry detergent.

Hypoallergenic Formula that Even Your Dermatologist Will Love

According to the National Eczema Association, detergents with added dyes, perfumes, and fragrances can irritate sensitive skin. No surprise—regular detergents rely on harsh chemicals to get their scents, which linger on your clothes. Alongside synthetic fragrances, they include dyes, enzymes, phosphates, optical brighteners, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, preservatives, and harsh surfactants—the list of allergens goes on. That means they can cause rashes, redness, and other irritations. Additionally, inhaling the chemicals in these scented detergents can cause health problems, particularly for those with asthma and other conditions.

When it comes to your laundry detergent, simplicity is key. Products like Charlie’s Soap unscented liquid laundry detergent keep the ingredient list short and sweet. It leaves out all the bad stuff and damaging chemicals, so it’s perfect for those with sensitive skin, eczema, and asthma. It’s gentle enough to use as a baby laundry detergent, with enough cleaning power to handle baby clothes and cloth diapers alike. As a dye-free, perfume-free, concentrated laundry detergent, our liquid laundry detergent is the EPA Safer Choice-certified detergent that can tackle your messes without any of the side effects.

Laundry Soap Without the Leftover Grime

Regular laundry detergents use perfumes to get you that “fresh-from-the-dryer” scent—but your laundry may not be that fresh. Products with added perfumes are designed to stick to your clothes, not rinse away in the washing machine. This means that your detergents and fabric softeners can actually trap grime into your clothes and just cover it up with a nice-smelling synthetic fragrance. Ultimately, this detergent and dirt build-up and can destroy the fabrics’ textures, making them rough and stiff. It can even shorten the lifespan of towels, sheets, and clothes. If your laundry is really being cleaned by your detergent, it shouldn’t leave anything behind—including any smell. 

Unscented laundry detergent is all about getting a real clean. Without interference from all of the fillers, fragrance-free, natural laundry detergents target tough stains, remove grime, and wash away completely. Even our laundry powder is a powerful stain remover that leaves no trace behind. The best part? You end up with the fresh scent of truly-clean laundry.

Clean: The Best Fresh Scent

With the inevitable build-up from scented laundry detergents, you end up wearing the very grime you were trying to wash off. Between sweat, dirt, mud, germs, and bacteria, there’s a lot that can linger in your clothes. Even synthetic fragrances and perfumes can only cover it up for so long. Over time, your clothes and washer end up smelling much, much worse, with the musty stink of mildew and dirty laundry. 

There’s no other scent quite as nice as clean laundry. Though unscented, clean towels, linens, and clothes carry a fresh scent that you can’t get any other way. Clean=no smell. No smell=long-lasting freshness. It’s that simple. That’s why, at Charlie’s Soap, our formulas gently but thoroughly remove all the stuff that makes your clothes smell in the first place, leaving you with actually great-smelling laundry—no cover-up needed.

Compostable and Eco-Friendly 

Unscented laundry detergent is even better for the environment. Between additives, perfumes, and fillers, run-off from regular detergent can cause significant damage to aquatic life and septic systems. Products like our laundry detergent packets are better for the planet by relying on compostable, plant-based ingredients with concentrated formulas. They’re even designed to work well in cold water and in high efficiency washers, so you can reduce your carbon footprint while doing your laundry.

Add Your Own Scent 

If you’re on board with scent-free laundry but you love your favorite fragrances, you can still safely add fragrances to your laundry without the negative effects of scented detergent. By adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a moistened cloth and tossing it in during the dry cycle, you can infuse your clothes with your selected fragrance for a naturally-scented, chemical-free, clean load of laundry.
