Charlie’s laundry soap recipe is scientifically proven to be safer for the environment than traditional laundry detergent brands. Our formulas surpass thresholds for ultimate biodegradation and are proven to have a low environmental impact. Our Liquid Laundry Detergent has earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safer Choice Certification


Most laundry soaps contain dyes, fragrances, essential oils, and phthalates that mask odors and cover stains. That “April-fresh” smell is actually due to the synthetic fragrances that are lingering in the fabric. For people with sensitive skin and those that suffer from eczema or psoriasis, these additives can cause discomfort and rashes, or aggravate existing skin irritations. Baby skin will also appreciate the gentle cleaning power, so, feel free to use it on cloth diapers and baby clothes, too.

Charlie’s Soap cleaning products are different. Our suds-free formula contains none of these additives, allowing each fiber to be wholly rinsed, leaving you with laundry that doesn’t just smell clean — it actually is clean. When your laundry soap creates suds, that’s actually unhealthy additives causing that reaction.

Feel confident that you’ll gain cleaner clothes every time you wash clothes with Charlie’s Soap. Our natural laundry detergent can be used in both top load and front-loading HE washers, and are safe for all septic systems. You may find that you have better results when you wash clothes with hot water with the heavy agitation or deep clean setting chosen. However, Charlie’s Soap does work well on the cold water setting too.

Pro tips: Have a stubborn stain, try our Laundry Pre-Spray Stain Remover and soak the offending spot in full-strength liquid detergent overnight. That tough stain will be history. Having the combination of laundry soap and stain remover in your laundry room will prepare you for any challenge that comes your way.

Have hard water? Use our detergent in combination with our hard water booster. You’ll feel your clothes become noticeably softer with each wash, without using the additives of fabric softeners.

Charlie’s Soap vs. DIY Detergent

Here at Charlie’s Soap, we are dedicated to sustainability. There are many homemade laundry detergent recipes out there, however, we know that many of the most eco-minded folks out there are simply busy. One of the most common ways to make your own laundry detergent is to mix borax, baking soda or washing soda, bar soap, and/or castile soap together, with some lavender essential oil for scent. This combination can get messy very quickly.

We have worked for over 40 years to develop an eco-friendly alternative to homemade laundry detergent, that might even just save you time and a few bucks. If you’re a lifelong fan of homemade laundry soap, consider Charlie’s Soap the next time you’re in a pinch.

Customer Questions

Is Charlie's Unscented Liquid Laundry Detergent sodium lauryl sulfate free?

Yes, all of our products, including all forms of our natural laundry detergents, are SLS-free.

I have a front load HE washer, and I was wondering if I can add the Charlie's liquid detergent to the dispenser rather than direct to the drum?

Yes, you can add Charlie’s Soap either way to your load of laundry. We recommend adding the powdered detergent product directly to the drum as most modern washers are designed with liquid detergents in mind. There may be inadequate water flow through the dispenser to dissolve and distribute the powder into the laundry load in some machines. The liquid should be no issue.

Will Charlie's liquid formula work in cold water?

All of our detergents are formulated to work with cold water.

The detergent industry defines cold water as having a temperature between 60°-80°. While warm water is defined between 90°-110°, and hot water is anything above that.

That being said, we recommend your water be at or above 55° for optimal cleaning.


How do I choose between liquid and powder detergent? Is one better for a high efficiency front loader?

Both Powder and Liquid detergents are formulated for HE (High Efficiency) washing machines.  The surfactants (cleaning agents) in both cleaning products are the same.

The main difference between the two is that liquid laundry detergent has water added, and the powder detergent has a drying agent used to form the powder flakes and prevent clumping.

Both are designed to rinse totally clear and are safe for use for the whole family in a high-efficiency washer or top-loading washer.

    Best Laundry Soap Ever I switched to Charlie’s Laundry Soap when pregnant with my second child. I was going to cloth diaper at night and when possible again and I had been reading about how well it worked for that along with helping with allergies. I aim to live green and clean and had been trying different brands but nothing wowed me. This was 13 years ago. Love this soap! Total WOW factor. Since then we’ve moved and now have a septic and live in a lake community, I love that along with keeping my family healthy I’m also contributing to a healthy lake environment and septic system using Charlie’s Soap. Over the years if I had questions, customer service was excellent. I’ve used powder and liquid and both are great. I am writing this review because i went to order my usual 5 gallon bucket and saw there were only 2 reviews! I tell people about Charlie’s Soap all the time and figured I should add my happy customer voice here as well. Thanks everyone, great job and great soap!

    Hands down the best! I’ve been using this product for 10 years. It’s hard to find non toxic anything let alone detergent and the bonus that it cleans sooo well! I can no longer buy it at my local shop so I ordered direct here and it got here so fast! If you are hesitant about trying, don’t be, you won’t be disappointed. And buy the pre wash spray for added laundry boost for stains. Works better than other stain sprays on the market!!

    Love Charlie's Soap! Having used Charlie's Soap for years, this is the first time I purchased the liquid in the 75 oz bottle. The size is much easier to use and fits in my cabinet! Caring for an incontinent adult in my home, I do laundry every day. I love the clean I get from Charlie's Soap, without any perfumey smells! Thank you for making such a great product!

    Laundry Liquid I've been using Charlie's Natural Laundry Liquid Detergent for about ten years--ever since my Granddaughter introduced me to it. She used it for cloth diapers because her baby had allergies. I use it because it has no odor and works!

    Liquid laundry detergent and powdered oxygen bleach Love it! After a long search, I finally found an environmentally friendly natural laundry detergent that cleans great, brightens clothes and truly has no fragrance and does not bother my allergies. I recently purchased the oxygen bleach for some old dingy whites that I had and they look like new! I am a customer for life!

    Laundry Soap I have multiple allergies. I was unable to find any laundry soap I could use. My niece sent me Charlie's soap to try. I really like it and have had no problems with it.

    Laundry detergent I love Charlie’s laundry detergent. We’ve always used the outdoor cleaner. My laundry looks cleaner without all the perfumes. I told my sister in Chicago about it and she ordered some since she has sensitive skin. Best stuff around.

    Powerful yet Gentle I originally started using this after I had my son for his very sensitive skin. It has surpassed my expectations and so we've continued to use it years after. My husband is a chef and it gets all the grease, food stains (including blood) and odors out of his clothes.

    I love Charlie's laundry detergent! I've used Charlie's Laundry Detergent for a few years now, and I really like it! I love that it is made of natural ingredients, and it biodegradable. But most of all, I love how clean all my laundry gets, and how good it smells. I also love the fact that it works in the washing machine, and also as hand laundry soap in the sink. It is very gentle, but tough on dirt. I am very happy with Charlie's Laundry Detergent!

    Love this soap!! I had used laundry products from another company for 25+ years and discovered Charlies cleans better and more economically. The laundry detergent gets all the clothes super clean and without any scent.
