Charlie's Soap Giveaway

I just got an exciting email from TerraMade Products!

In honor of the sock saved from grass stains and the exciting release of the Emma pattern, TerraMade Products has graciously donated a bag of Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder to JLYarnworks to give away to one of our lucky readers! Let Charlie's save your future Emma socks too!


Each 2.64lb bag of Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder will do 80 washing machine loads of laundry. I, personally, also like to use Charlie's in the sink for handwashing just about anything or even in the bathtub for washing small rugs. Charlie's rinses away easily and completely. I use it on my woolens before using a wool wash because, well, I wonder about how well no-rinse products clean. So I use Charlie's first, then a wool wash to lanolize it so the wool doesn't dry out and to keep the wool super soft.

Want to enter? Complete one or all of the following tasks to gain entries. After each task completed, leave a comment on this post to be counted. Be sure I have your email or that you link to some way for me to get hold of you if you win! Contest ends June 10th. Winner will be chosen by random number generator and announced on June 11th.

Entry Tasks:

1. Leave a comment. That's it. Everyone gets one freebie entry. (1 entry)
2. Tweet about this blog giveaway, linking to this blog post. (1 entry)

I would like to try it-grass stains are tough so I figure anything I get into would be a snap for this soap to take care of :)

Hullos! I have heard mention of this soap and have been interested in trying it but haven't gotten around to such. I hope I get to soon!

I totally just tweeted the giveaway!
I also found the giveaway appropriate because I just finished reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower and was feeling very Charlie-esque.

So......... I just visited the TerraMade website and found the wool dryer balls.
I think the Tweed BallJacket is pretty sweet, and the phrase "balljacket" gave me a good chuckle.

Hi again,

I just wanted to let you know that I blogged about the giveaway and TerraMade's wool dryer balls.

Thanks!

Hurray! I'd love to try this out on my wool stuff — since you already do, I know it's safe, right? ;) (What do you think about using it on raw fleece?)

Silver said...

I'm also already a Facebook fan! ;D

Silver said...

Oh, and does my RT of your tweet from @starncrossbones count? ;)

ntaglass said...

I've never heard of this soap - where do you get it - while I'd love to win it, I'm not the type who wins things so I want to know where to go to buy it!

Zoƫ said...

This would be really cool to try :)

Beverly said...

Sound like just what I need!

Jackie said...

ntaglass, you can get it on the TerraMade website linked within the blog entry. I'm not familiar with any brick & mortar stores that carry it. Hope that helps!

eyebehold said...

Tweeted and blogged about it, although, like Susie, I've never heard of this soap before. I'd had the same concerns about wool washes myself...

Lynda said...

What a neat chance to try something new!

I visited the site and would love to try the organic hand and body soap in lavender.

So would this be good for washing fleeces, do you think? Would it take out enough lanolin and not strip it to straw? I'm entered a couple ways, but I'm also going to buy some if I don't win - but was wondering if anyone had used it for scouring wool.

Jackie said...

ntaglass, my best guess would be yes! But I've never tried it. I have read that it tends to dry out wool unless you add lanolin back in though, so it really could go either way.

I do use the liquid version for washing in my machine. And I use the powdered version for handwashing. It's pretty similar to oxyclean, but eco-friendly. Same texture, smell. But I've never used it for a fleece, just sweaters and socks and such.

Jessica said...

Ooh, I'm excited about this soap! Though I did make my own homemade powdered laundry soap and it's pretty awesome, too!

Puddytat purr said...

Hmmmmmm I'd love to try some of this soap!
