If you live in a hard water area such as Adelaide or Brisbane you may need a water treatment will help Charlie’s Soap do it’s job. Many other laundry detergents contain lots of ingredients including phosphates that certainly do the job, but hurt the environment at the same time. Because Charlie’s Soap contains only natural, safe ingredients it may be necessary to use an additive such as the Charlie’s Soap Laundry Booster to help it along, in a way that is kinder to the environment and you.
Charlie’s Soap Booster & Hard Water Treatment uses a biodegradable phosphate that helps bring out the best of Charlie’s Soap without leaving any residues on your clothes.
Certain phosphates can safely eliminate problems associated with hard water and be environmentally friendly. They are only a problem with overuse.
If hard water is an issue, why not use an environmentally safe product (ours) rather than take a chance with other detergents that put bad things into the environment?
The advantage of using Charlie’s Soap with our new Booster & Hard Water Treatment is that you get the benefit of really clean clothes without all the chemicals.
Used in moderation, our Booster is safe for the environment. In the diluted form you’re likely to use (1/2 to 1 tablespoon on the occasional load), the impact will be minimal if at all noticeable at all in septic tank systems.
If you do have to use our Booster for multiple washes every day, you should maintain your septic system with an enzyme and germ replenishment product.
