I’ve tried several different brands of enzyme-free soap to wash my cloth diapers. Either they were left with stains, or smelling not-so-fresh. Or, they didn’t clean the stains off my clothes as well as Charlie’s did. So I kept going back to it! That’s why this is the brand I sell at Baby Time!

The best way to use Charlie’s Soap for Diapers:
- The machine should be cleaned of all residues of other detergents before washing diapers
with Charlie’s Soap. (Already use Charlie’s? Skip this step.)
- Put 2 TBSP of the Powder or 2 fl. oz. of the Liquid into the machine and run a full cycle with some
old rags. Rinse twice. Always use at least the full dose of Charlie’s Soap for a diaper load: 1 oz. of the
Liquid or 1 TBSP of the Powder. Charlie’s Soap will rinse completely so do not worry about residue.
- Charlie’s Soap needs that full amount to be effective. More may be required for excessive stains. Call
us if you have hard water. Diapers that have been washed in anything other than Charlie’s Soap
likely have detergent residues. Charlie’s Soap will clean those residues to the exclusion of other
stains until they are gone. It may take several washes with a full dose of Charlie’s Soap to remove
these residues. It is advisable to wash diapers new to Charlie’s Soap a full 4 or more times
before using them on your baby. We want to make sure that nothing but the diaper comes into
contact with your baby’s skin.
- Charlie’s Soap will remove a lot of the bacteria in a diaper during the normal wash. But for your
baby’s safety, we recommend you follow some disinfecting routine. Since no disinfectant is perfect for
each customer, we recommend you contact your diaper manufacturer to see which method they
suggest. (I used a splash of bleach-also a must if your child is battling yeast/diaper rash. Be sure to do a double rinse!)
For day to day washing, we recommend a wash routine like this:
- Cold water rinse.
- Long warm wash with Charlie’s Soap, disinfectant, and if necessary, a water softener.
- Short cold wash with Charlie’s Soap alone and finish up with a double rinse.
