Have you heard the news? Charlie Banana launched an environmentally safe laundry detergent! I love, love, love Charlie Banana (they make one of my favorite mama cloths and we love their swim diaper), so I was thrilled to hear the news.

The new Charlie Banana Laundry Soap is made specifically for families who are cloth diapering, but it can also be used for clothes. It’s great for newborns and people with sensitive skin who are prone to allergies. This laundry soap rinses clean without leaving a residue, and it is not absorbed into the skin so it won’t cause dry skin or rashes. It’s also gentler on fabrics.

What makes it great for cloth diapers?

Because of the non-toxic, completely soluble ingredients, Charlie Banana Laundry Soap will not clog fabric pores, ensuring a successful cloth diapering experience. Most laundry detergents contain optical whiteners, ammonia, bleach, parabens and irritating fragrances and perfumes, which can leave a film on cloth diapers and clothes, clogging the fibers. Clogged cloth diaper fibers repel liquids, causing unwanted leaks.

Charlie Banana Laundry Soap contains biodegradable surfactants developed by detergent specialists who have spent years researching the formula. The soap also contains pure, highest grade, completely soluble, all natural washing soda and is coconut-oil based.

Charlie Banana Laundry Soap:

  • Is free of phosphates, dyes, clays, ultraviolet brighteners, parabens and perfumes
  • Is biodegradable and hypo-allergenic
  • Dissolves quickly and rinses thoroughly without any leftover residue, which typically leads to stiff and irritating clothes
  • Is safe for high-efficiency washing machines
  • Removes trapped odors in athletic clothes
  • Will not fade clothes and can be used on whites or to brighten darks
  • Comes in a 2.64 liter container, which can wash up to 80 large loads of laundry (only one (1) tablespoon per large load is needed)

While the laundry soap was launched exclusively with zulily in July, it will be available through independent retailers and on charliebanana.com beginning September 1.
