I just read some disturbing info about ingredients in Charlie's soap products: http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2011/03/22/a-disappointed-update-on-charlies-soap-and-butylcelosolv-or-butoxyethanol/. I have been using Charlie's for over a year and love it for cloth diapers. But now I'm concerned about it's safety. I like Lifekind products but have never tried the laundry liquid. I would like to buy the 5 gal pail so it's cheaper, but before I invest that much money, I wanted to see if anyone has experience using it.

But that butyl whatever chemical is not in Charlies Laundry soap. That chemical was in their all purpose spray. I read through all the comments at that website and found that. Still I cannot find ingredients on their website. That chemical is not on my jar of Charlies soap, though. It's not fair to dump Charlies if their laundry soap doesn't contain that bad ingredient, especially if it's working well for you. I love the way it cleans. I love my clean laundry smell - the smell of clean cotton. Yum. (haven't started cloth diapering yet, starting when baby comes in august.

That is the problem though - we don't know what is in the laundry liquid b/c the company refuses to disclose the ingredients. And the fact that they used a Czech word instead of English is very suspicious. Believe me, I love their laundry liquid for cloth diapers. But I'm just not sure I can trust the company.

Yeah, that isn't too cool, I will agree. I don't know what to switch to because it's for the whole household laundry. It gets our stuff clean and seems so natural. I just bought a new tub of it too. greensad.gif

I started using dropps and like it so far. It is cheap enough to use for the whole family not just diapers. http://dropps.com/index.asp
