Free Soap: Give Chuck a Try.

June 30th, 2015 by Broo

July 1 – 14. That’s right. Free. Clean Bee is celebrating America’s birthday – the very act of which gives us a moment up here on our own little soap box. We like Charlie’s so much that we think you should try it – for free. Bring your laundry, bring your friend’s laundry, load up a washer or two and help yourself to a scoop of Charlie’s Soap – on the house. Like it so much and want to bring some home? Help yourself to a healthy discount on a jar of Charlie’s Soap Powder. Cleans just about everything: from false teeth to diesel engines. (Neither of which should go in our washing machines, btw.)

All Charlie’s retail products will be on 10% off during this time as well. We carry the Soap Powder (refills too!), Liquid Detergent, Power Packs (similar to laundry pods only they work better and look nothing like candy), Oxygen Bleach, Hard Water Softener and Laundry Pre-Spray.

Some background info:

After just a week or so of running the laundromat, we realized that the Tide vending machine was more hassle than it was worth. We had to purchase little boxes of soap powder which customers would use and then throw away. The boxes had either too little or too much detergent in them, causing machines to either over-suds or underperform. We had to make a change – for the better.  So we took down the vending machine (adios, thanks to Craigslist), invested in a drum of Charlie’s Laundry Powder, washed and filled several liquid detergent caps with pre-measured tablespoons of Charlie’s: the Soap Bar was born! No more bumping heads on the vending machine. No more ridiculous packaging. No more oversudsing machines. And best of all – customers love it! Laundry is getting much cleaner with much less environmental harm.

Charlie’s Laundry Powder is a revolutionary approach to laundry care. It does not cover up stains and odors with scents and brighteners – it really cleans. It is made with a unique blend of biodegradable coconut-based detergents and high-grade, completely soluble, Green River washing soda. Charlie’s Soap products are made in America.

The 2.64 lb. refillable jars of Charlie’s powder we sell can do up to 80 full/100 medium wash loads. That’s just pennies per load! Needs only 1 tablespoon per large wash load – That’s all! Charlie’s is hypoallergenic, leaves no residue, and is perfect for babies and those who have sensitive skin. (Think: cloth diapers!)  It dissolves completely and is biodegradable. The powder is more convenient and portable than a liquid and is front-loader/HE compatible. Charlie’s also makes an other laundry and household products worth celebrating. Next time you’re in, ask us about them.
