Some moms are concerned using new detergent on their baby, you rest assured with Charlie's Soap and is safe to use on your baby cloth diapers and clothings. Our Charlie's Soap Manager has sent an email to answer our questions that we are concern about.
We know Charlie's is such adifferent beast and often the transition from something else to Charlie's can be a bit tricky. I'm sure this can solve your problem if you'd like to take a crack at it. It's a lot of info, but it has helped many people in the past.
1) Did you use a double dose of the Laundry Powder or Liquid with a few old rags to clean out your machine before starting your diaper load? Without this step, especially if you're switching back and forth between Charlie's and another detergent, your first load of diapers gets coated in residue left from the previous load done in Brand X. The Charlie's knocks loose all that residue and uses itself up in the process. Then the residue sticks itself to your diapers with no more Charlie's to clean it off. The best bet is to wash all your clothes in Charlie's, but if you don't do that, you MUST clean the machine before your diaper loads.
2) Did you use the full scoop of Powder or the full ounce of Liquid when you washed your diapers? The rule of thumb is to use less detergent when washing diapers. This is out there because the other detergents simply don't dissolve and don't rinse. Everybody knows this, so they say to reduce residue, use less. Well, Charlie's is incapable of leaving a residue (if the water isn't extremely hard...little whiterocks under all your faucets...or your washing machine does a halfway decent job at rinsing...some just breath moist air on the clothes and call it a rinse cycle!) and since diapers could be considered heavily soiled, using less Charlie's Soap causes more problems than it could conceivably cure. If you have hard water, you need to use a heaping spoonfull of the Powder since it has water softeners that help the Powder dissolve and help it do its job. You may also consider a secondary water softener like Borax or oxy bleaches containing sodium percarbonate. The best would be phosphates. If your water is fine, still use the full tablespoon of Charlie's because otherwise, the soil and bacteria just aren't coming out.
3) Did you dissinfect? Charlie's doesn't kill bacteria. In fact, they think it food. That's why the product is so biodegradable. While it can get rid of a whole lot of the bacteria in a normal wash after the diapers have been prepped, it only takes a few to cause horrible skin problems or at the very least stink issues. So what you need to do iskill the few remaining bacteria. There are many methods, including the dreaded B word, chlorine bleach. Be careful to follow the care instructions of your diaper before using the chlorine bleach. Eventhough it is the best dissinfectant, it can harm some diapers. Of course, you only need like a tablespoon of bleach. But if you don'twish to use that product, there are others. Borax and oxy bleaches release weak dissinfectants into the water that, when used in concert with the Charlie's to remove the bacteria first, can kill many of the bacteria that are left. No bacteria equals no rash equals no stink. You can also sun and use super hot water during the wash, but the hot water doesn't kill all the bacteria and the sunning only kills the bacteria in direct sunlight.
No detergent can kill bacteria alone. Those that do have such additives. Bleach is fine for most clothing if you're only trying to kill bacteria. That's because you only need an eye-droppers worth, about 15 ml in a full washing machine. This is enough to change the water to kill bacteria but not enough to do any damage. Plus, we'd rather see the damage done to the bacteria than the baby! When using only about 4 us tablespoons (60 ml?) of Borax, there shouldn't be any damage at all. Keep in mind that Charlie's Soap will clean a lot and probably get rid of 99.99% of germs, but that 0.01% can still cause problems. You must kill that which didn't get washed away for the sake of the baby.
4) Had these diapers been washed in another brand prior to use with Charlie's? If so, depending on your water, it can take 2-4 loads to remove old detergent residue from them. The Charlie's starts to strip the old detergent residue out and then the cycle ends. At worst, these detergent residues get brought to the surface of the diapers and thenthe child gets put in the diapers loaded with detergent residue from months of washing. Yes, if that happens, they will break out. The Charlie's is gone, but it has pulled months worth of junk up to where it can touch skin. A few more prep washes removes all the offending residue and now you have fresh diapers to use and clean.

Regardless of how, with ours or with another brand, I hope your problems get solved and you and your baby are taken care of. If you'd like to talk to me directly, just call the number below. I'm usually the one that answers.
Taylor SutherlandOps Manager, Charlie's Soap
I have contacted another person to verified this issue, she is Yvonne from Hong Kong to proof that Charlie's Soap is safe for you and your baby. She is a Hong Kong Certified Natural Healers. She used to live here in Malaysia more than 5years and she has her own experiment room for the natural products that she used to make such as skincare and bodycare. All her products has been certified by our Malaysian Health Government. She has acknowledge that Charlie's Soap is using all natural ingredients such as washing soda, sodium silicate and coconut oil. When coconut oil mix with sodium it will comes out suds, then when washing soda mix together it can clean out the stain, smell and dirts. She said what people mean by Charlie's Soap can't disinfect, all natural washing powder has less disinfect coz it doesn't contains chemical agent. The best disinfection is direct sunlight and dryer coz of the heat. Direct sunlight means that every part of the diapers has to be sunning, the side which not under the sunlight also tends to build up bacteria.
Some online stores recommend to put dettol or tea tree oil into the cloth diapers to disinfect when washing it, actually dettol has a strong chemical agent that caused baby rashes if long term using it and tea tree oil will blocked the absorbtion of cloth diapers, it will repel water later especially on PUL Diapers. And some online store teaches the customers to add baking soda for wash and vinegar for rinse. I have received 2 customers told me that they are doing it every week. Now they found out that their baby having terrible diaper rash. If you continued using the baking soda and vinegar and you didn't rinse enough, the bacteria will build inside the diaper. So do you mean is the the baking soda or the vinegar are the culprit?
When you add on anything, as long as you clean it thoroughly then the cloth diapers will not tend to build up bacteria. Always dried under the direct sunglight or dryer coz of the heat. Please take note that when you add on any disinfect agent or dried under sunlight, it only can disinfect at that moment. Once the cloth diapers has wind off, our surrounded area is full of bacteria and will stay on to our cloth diapers and clothes unless we have a temperature room or wardrobe to put our cloth diapers or clothes.
I hope this clarifications is enough to help those people who has misconcept about Charlie's Soap. Thank you to those customers who fully support and trust on Charlie's Soap.
One more thing, I was really upset with these 2 local online stores owner. I have a customer who ordered a product from me and suddenly she wants to cancel it. She has read some comment from these 2 person on one of their online store about the product that she wants to buy. They even have a live chat to comment about this product. This online store owners given out the links and ask my client to check on the comparison about this product that she planned to buy from me.
I think this is not a proffesional way to do business, am I right? We don't talked and comment about other people products openly, they can email between themselves. They don't have any good supporting proof, don't comment on the product in open chat. This is not a right way to do business. I have informed my supplier about this comment and they will proof to me these people are wrong. I even called up a friend of mine who is a Certified Natural Healers about my product. She told me there are no problem with the ingredient of my product. The ingredients are all natural and safe for baby. This friend of mine taught me how the product work on each person and there are no side effect.
Luckily I have an understanding client, and after I explained to her and she agreed with me. She proceed with the order. I have another good online store owner from Penang who sent me an email when I told her I'm sad. This is really a good online store owner who works proffesionally.
Please read the message she sent to me, after I read it I really agreed with it. I got the call from post malaysia and informed me I can received my parcel tomorrow, then I got back this order from my client too. Now I'm happy as what this message meant, you don't hear, see what other people says..
The Law of the Garbage Trucks
A good philosophy, worth trying
The Law of the Garbage Trucks
How often do you let other people's nonsense change your mood? Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day?
Unless you're the Terminator, for an instant you're probably setback on your heels. However, the mark of a successful person is how quickly she can get back her focus on what's important.
I learned it in the back of a Harare City taxi cab. Here's whathappened. I hopped in a taxi and we took off for Westgate .We were driving when all of a sudden a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car's back end by just inches!
Here's what happened next. The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident, whipped his head around and he started yelling bad words at us. How do I know? Ask any Zimbabwean, some wordsin Harare come with a special face.
Now, here's what blew me away. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was friendly. So, I said, "Why did you justdo that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!"
And this is when my taxi driver told me what I now call, "The Law of the Garbage Truck."
Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full ofgarbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. And if you letthem, they'll dump it on you. When someonewants to dump on you, don't take it personally. You just smile, wave,wish them well, and move on. You'll be happy you did. I guarantee it.
So this was it: The "Law of the Garbage Truck." I started thinking,how often do I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? And how often do Itake their garbage and spread it to other people: at work, at home, onthe streets? It was that day I said, "I'm not going to do it anymore."
I began to see garbage trucks. Like in the movie "The Sixth Sense,"the little boy said, "I see Dead People." Well now "I see GarbageTrucks."I see the loadthey're carrying. I see them coming to drop it off. And like my Taxi Driver, I don't make it a personal thing; I just smile, wave, wish themwell, and I move on.
One of my favourite Football players of all times, Ronaldino, doesthis every day on the football field. With a smile he always jumps up as quickly as he hits the ground after being tackled. He never dwells on ahit. Ronaldino is always ready to make the next play his best. Goodleaders know they have to be ready for their next meeting. Good parents know that they have to welcome their children home from school with hugsand kisses.
Leaders and parents know that they have to be fully present, and attheir best for the people they care about.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let Garbage Truckstake over their day.
What about you? What would happen in your life, starting today, if you let more garbage trucks pass you by? You'll be happier. I guarantee it.
Please send this message to your friends if he/she feels down...
GOOD LUCK & GOD BLESSED YOU!
