I did the math last night, and wanted to share with you!
after two months of exclusive use, I felt comfortable doing the calculations. We use Charlie's for all our laundry now, including Cloth Diapers.
The past two months we averaged one bag of Charlie's a month, equaling 80 loads of laundry each month. By purchasing in bulk, I spent less than $100 on a 5 gallon bucket of Charlie's, which is 1280 loads. At the rate we are going, that should last us 16 months and cost us less than $6.25 a month.
A concentrated bottle of ALL Free and Clear (what I used previously) costs $4.97 here and does 32 loads. That's $0.155 a load, which would mean at 80 loads a month, All costs me $12.40 a month.
Therefore Charlie's costs me HALF of what All free and clear does. And the packaging waste is significantly less also. And that adds up to $75 a year that I am saving in laundry detergent. And tons and tons of plastic reduction for the environment, and the soap is also safe for the environment. How's that for good news!
