About Charlie's Soap

How we got from there to here...
In 1976, Charlie Sutherland, Jr. and his brother-in-law Ron Joyce were working for the yarn oil division (run by Charlie's dad) of a large textile yarn company. The yarn company asked Charlie to find a soap to clean up the oils his division was making along with other accumulated grime the yarn machines picked up. Rather than buy a soap, Ron and Charlie started making it themselves on the sly in an old barn on Ron's dad's farm. Charlie came up with the final formula after a short while; the stuff worked great, and they were in business.

With $200, Charlie and Ron officially started their little soap company. Charlie had to borrow $100 from Ron to cover his half of the enterprise. Eventually the yarn company figured out where the soap was coming from and raised Hell. After they convinced Ron that they would continue buying the soap, he went with the new soap company. The yarn company kept Charlie. Charlie's dad used to say of the original cleaner, "It cleans everything from false teeth to diesel engines." We put that on the labels. The soap company struggled on with Charlie still helping make soap on weekends, and Ron delivering during the week. The oil division at the textile yarn company was bought out in 1981 by a German chemical company and Charlie went with the Germans.

Time to start a new company
In 1983, over strong objections from his wife Jane, Charlie left his good job and bought Ron's shares of the struggling little soap company.
Ron left for greener pastures, and Charlie, now over $60,000 in debt, moved all the equipment to the old yarn oil division where his father, Charlie senior, and Ron's secretary, Jenny Craver, still kept an office. Jenny stayed with the little soap company. The very day Charlie took over the soap company, the old yarn company started modernizing and shipping thousands of their old machines to China.

The Chinese folks insisted that these old grimy machines had to be sparkling clean before shipping. Soap sales soared, and Charlie hired Wayne Belton to mix soap and drive the truck he got from the German company. Charlie paid off his debts and was sitting pretty especially after he invented a new scour (Laundry Liquid) for the Quality Control Labs, and it was now selling to the outdoor-wear folks. All was good - for a while.

Tough times
In 1992, after all of the old textile machines had been shipped to China, the yarn company was sold and 75% of Charlie's soap business was gone overnight. Times were tough, and Charlie and Jane had two kids in college and two more in private school. Thank Goodness Charlie had the new sales in the Laundry Liquid for outdoor wear. That kept the doors open. Sadly, Charlie's dad passed on in 1994. He is missed.

Today -- Sold around the globe
Over the years, through word-of-mouth and lots of scratching, the original Charlie's Soap, the new Laundry Liquid, and the newer Laundry Powder have found their way around the globe and they continue to amaze those who try them. The boys, Taylor, James, and Morgan started working at the plant in 2002 and they are really making the company grow.

Charlie's Soap - Indoor & Outdoor Surface Cleaner - 32 oz. (946 mL)

Charlie's Soap Indoor and Outdoor Surface Cleaner is a hard surface cleaning agent originally developed for maintenance operations on industrial machinery. When you need effective degreasing action along with safety, this will become your go-to biodegradable cleaner. Indoor/Outdoor is made from all-natural washing soda and coconut oil-based detergents. It is certified biodegradable and safe for the environment. It is a non-toxic cleaner that works.

Why use Indoor/Outdoor Surface Cleaner

  • Safely cleans a remarkable variety of surfaces and soils and mold.
  • Gently releases grease and grime without harsh abrasives, lye, phosphates, bleach, dyes or cheap perfume.
  • Green cleaning for decks, cars, boats, bikes, driveways, siding, walls, pets, hands, engines, furniture, grills and more.
  • In short: if you can use a lot of water to rinse what you're cleaning, this is the best bet for you!

What's in Charlie's Soap?
Their formulas are what make them special. They have been fully tested for non-toxicity (Duke University) and biodegradability (Japan Food Research Labs) and effectiveness (SGS US Testing Labs). They are unique and, following the practices of Coca-Cola, secret. A secret formula doesn't keep folks from drinking Coke, right? But consumers have a right to know what's inside the products so that folks can better make up their minds whether they want to use their products.

Charlie's Soap's ingredients can be separated into two categories: biodegradable ingredients and natural mineral ingredients. The United States federal government requires that a product biodegrade 80% in 28 days before it can be labeled "biodegradable." As tested by the Japan Food Research Laboratories, their biodegradable ingredients degrade by 97.3% in 28 days in soil. The rest of their ingredients fall under the natural mineral category. Their products are rated safe for use around lakes and streams and have been approved by the USDA for use around food preparing surfaces. They are non-toxic.

Zero incidental ingredients
Many other "green" detergents use incidental chemicals to augment their cleaning agents. These are things like, but are not limited to: oleic acid, sodium hydroxide, boric acid, protease and amylase, glycerin, calcium chloride, sodium chloride,citric acid, methylisothiazolinone and benzisothiazolinone. Charlie's Soap contains and needs none of these chemicals or chemicals like them: no baking soda, no zeolites, no fragrances, no bleach, no anti-foaming agents, no essential oils, no anti-redeposition agents, no thickening agents, no enzymes. Charlie's Soap stands on its simple formula for superior cleaning and safety.
