Safer for the Environment

That’s why our Liquid Laundry Detergent has earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safer Choice Certification

Charlie’s Soap vs DIY Detergent 

Here at Charlie’s Soap, we are dedicated to sustainability. Many homemade, eco-minded laundry detergent recipes exist, however along with the mess and the hassle of making laundry soap at home they are not as effective. They lack stain-fighting power and can leave oil-based residue on clothing and linens.

With 40 years of experience perfecting our formulations, our products are as pure as your DIY detergents but save time and money. If you’re a lifelong fan of homemade laundry soap, consider Charlie’s Soap the next time you’re in a pinch.

The Charlie’s Soap Difference 

Most laundry soaps contain dyes, synthetic fragrances, and phthalates that linger in fabrics, masking odor and stains. For people with sensitive skin and conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, these additives can cause discomfort, itchiness, rashes, and more. These unhealthy additives also promote more laundry suds, which limit stain removal. They’re also notorious for damaging washing machines.

Charlie’s Soap products are different. Our suds-free formulas are free from these additives. That means that our cleaning agents target each fiber, attacking grime, stains, and grease before completely rinsing away. Charlie’s leaves you with laundry that does more than just smell clean—it actually is clean. Feel confident that your clothes will get cleaner every time you wash clothes with Charlie’s Soap. It’s right in our motto—clean, for life. 

Our natural laundry detergent can be used in both top-load and front-loading HE washers, and is safe for all septic systems. The gentle cleaning power is perfect for sensitive baby skin, so it’s perfect for cloth diapers and baby clothes.

How to Use Charlie’s Soap Liquid Laundry Detergent

For best results, use Charlie’s Soap liquid laundry detergent with hot water on the heavy agitation or deep clean setting. However, Charlie’s Soap also works well with cold water and on delicate cycles

Stubborn stains? Try our Laundry Pre-Spray Stain Remover with our liquid laundry detergent. Simply soak the stained area in full-strength liquid detergent overnight, then spray the stain with our Pre-Spray. Let it sit for at least fifteen minutes before tossing it in the washer on a regular cycle. With Charlie’s laundry soap and stain remover, you’re prepared for any challenge that comes your way.  You can also just spray the stain with the Pre-Spray and let it sit overnight.

We can also help you handle hard water. Pair our liquid laundry detergent with our Hard Water Booster. You’ll feel the difference as your clothes become noticeably softer with each wash—no fabric softeners needed.

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.

    Ok this stuff is amazing! I don’t even need to use fabric softener to get my towels to be fluffy. Any scent prior to washing was completely gone, the towels were fluffy and felt so clean. This soap also suds up very nice

    Bought for my new grandson, much more gentle than Dreft. He has had no issues with rash and my daughter uses on her clothes and loves it. She is very sensitive to detergent, soap and lotions. Excellent product!

    Charlie's soap just gets down to the business of cleaning your clothes without added chemicals and smells. It takes a while, but over time you will remove all the residue from other detergents by washing your clothes in Charlie's soap. My clothes are clean, soft and there is no artificial fragrance smell or added chemicals. Charlie's soap is better for your health, your skin and the environment. I order 4 bottles and they last forever, so while it may "seem" expensive - it beats paying $9.99 for a Free and Clear detergent and rebuying them week after week after week.

    Bought this for my husbands hunting clothes and it is great! The reviews saying it cleans your washer and completely true. My washer never looked cleaner.

  12. 5 out of 5

    I have used this product for many years and I am so happy with the cleanliness of my clothes and no perfume smell. It is concentrated, so the large size last a long time, and I do a lot of laundry. Highly recommend this to everyone.

  13. 5 out of 5

    I have used this laundry soap for several years. I like that it works well in cold water. We are farmers and clothes get pretty dirty but this product does a wonderful job getting them clean. I like the fact that it does not have a perfume smell and is not harmful to the environment. I will continue to order.

    The greatest detergent I've ever used! The largest size has lasted over a year (admittedly, not doing heaps of laundry) and I am only just not reordering. I had a number of nicer fabric buttondowns from ll bean that I was worried were nearing the end of their useful lives as they had gotten more...stiff and almost tacky though the years. I assumed it was from lots of use in hot climates traveling abroad, thinking maybe it was the sweat and skin that had built up. I used this detergent ONCE and the yucky feeling and texture was gone, and on second wash they felt softer and fresher than they did as new shirts maybe five years ago.

    Used for our cloth diaper laundry, and it gets the job done without ruining anything, and even removes stains on the diapers. Does not get stains out from regular clothes, however, and there is no scent which I appreciate.

  16. 5 out of 5

    Non scented. Is everything it claims to be. Cleans well.

  17. 5 out of 5

    I love Charlies laundry's fragrance free, dye free and it doesn't irritate my special snowflake skin.

  18. 5 out of 5

    Recommended by my dermatologist for a skin rash that I have been fighting for about a year. Couldn't believe the change in my clothing. Soft without scents. Environmental friendly another key factor for me.

    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 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.
