Tuesday's Green Tip and CONTEST!!

CONTEST IS OFFICIALLY OVER! WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON TUESDAY AUGUST 12! THANK YOU!!!! 355 entries!! WOW!!


Happy Tuesday! Time for Tuesday's Green tip and a Green give away!




We have visited this room of the house before, the laundry room. When I first posted about this room I had just purchased Charlie's Soap and had only used a few times. Now that I have been using it for some time now I have grown to LOVE this product! This stuff takes out EVERYTHING! Seriously! From grease to grass stains to poop! Yes poop. This stuff would come in handy for those of you who cloth diaper!


I purchased the Liquid soap in a gallon and all you need is an ounce. That is a lot of loads of laundry! I purchased their pump that dispenses an ounce so no measuring! Our clothes look wonderful and THE BEST PART...it is natural. I also purchased their All purpose Cleaner and have grown to love it as well. It cuts grease like no other and took grass stains out of school uniform pants that had been sitting like that all summer! Nothing. else. worked.


Now for the contest.....some Charlie's Soap of your own! One lucky winner will receive 2 bags of Laundry Powder, 2 small bottles of Laundry Liquid and 2 sprayers of All Purpose Cleaner. That is a $75.00 value! That is 192 loads of laundry!! Winner will be picked by random at 11:00 PM CST on Monday August 11th and winner will be announced on Tuesday Green Tip blog on August 12th.


Here are the contest rules:

Leave me a comment for one entry. For an additional entry tell me your favorite green tip in a seperate comment. Contest open to all! If you do not have a blog send me an email!

Good luck and thank you Charlie's Soap!

Kathleen said...

I'd love to give this a try! My husband has been known to sweat something like a horse and anything that may be able to save those undershirts for an extra week or two would be great!

CanCan said...

I would love this for my cloth diapers!

onlycancan at hotmail dot com

CanCan said...

My green tip is to have your husband switch from shaving cream to shaving soap and a shaving brush. This keeps those shaving cream cans out of the land fills, and it's cheaper, too! We find our shaving soap and shaving brushes at CVS.

Audrey said...

I would love to win this and try it.

Audrey said...

My green tip. We only turn lights on when absolutely necessary. Then we use only lightbulbs that are meant for saving energy. We never leave lights on in rooms when we're not there.

Jenn said...

I just recently discovered that it is not necessary to wash blue jeans every day. In fact, it is recommended to NOT wash them. Supposedly, it's recommended on the tag of pricey European jeans to go a month without washing them. I don't think I can stand to do that, but I can go a couple days. It is also recommended to line dry them, which is something I prefer to do anyway.

nanja said...

Wow nice giveaway Love to try this laundry soap
My green tip Don't add to our over used thrash accumalation by throwing out dryer sheets After each use put then in a jar that you add a few capfulls of fabric softener to, shake take out and clip them all with a one clothespin, let dry and voila! new dryer sheets to use

misty said...

Linda White said...

I use vinegar and water to disinfect in the bathroom. Cold water for washing clothes, I do wear some thing more than once. Really want to try this soap out!

frogz60@hotmail.com

inmomniac said...

Oh, this sounds fabulous! I'm trying to go green as well. I do what I can!

Ginny said...

This stuff looks amazing! I'd love to be entered :)

Ginny said...

My green tip is to turn off the water while brushing your teeth & soaping up your hands while washing. Saves a bunch of water! Also, you can use gray water to water plants, etc.

Reiza said...

Count me in. This sounds great.

Reiza said...

Okay, here's my green tip:
Resell, donate or make something out of old kids' clothes. If they get stained, either use the fabric or pass it on to someone else who can.

If we reused more clothes and bought used ones instead of brand new, we could eliminate a lot of waste.

hope said...

This is a great giveaway! Our first baby is due this October, and we're going green with cloth diapering. Charlie's products would be a great gift to win for my baby!! Thank you for giving the chance :)

hope.september[at]gmail.com

hope said...

Here's a green tip to share:
Unplug unused chargers

Plugged-in laptop, cell phone, and other chargers continue to draw electricity even when they aren't charging. This results to wastage in electric bills. Thus, the green solution would be to just unplug them, or plug them into a surge protector and flip that switch when your device has pulled enough electricity.

Let's go green!

Simply Stork said...

I would love to try this stuff...I am always looking to get away from the chem. kind :o)

~simply~

Simply Stork said...

Many women do not like to compost because of the fruit flies...I saved an old large pickle jar with the lid and it sits on my kitchen counter...I take off the top...and drop in the compost and put the top back on...my son takes it out as one of his chores and if he forgets a day it stinks...he now never forgets :o)

green and halpful at the same time...:o)

cdziuba said...

I'm trying to be as green as possible. Hope I win.

demmi said...

my tip is to start a free box at your work place, play group etc. so that you can give away stuff you no longer use and get something you need

kagey10 said...

wow, I would love some new soap! and something that gets stains out!

kagey10 said...

a green tip.

electrical outlet covers, not only protect kids, but also help energy bills.

gkstratos said...

Love the packaging!
gkstratos@yahoo.com

faith said...

Sounds like great soap. I'd love to try it. It's hard to get out stains without using chemicals.

gkstratos said...

My green tip is to start composting ... seriously, it's not that hard. And get your kids involved. They'll keep you in line if you start to slack.
gkstratos@yahoo.com

faith said...

My green tip is switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs. Also saves on your electric bill! :-)

Marlene said...

I have to admit I do wear pants and shorts for a few days before washing and I reuse my bath towel for a few days as well. Trying to do less laundry and waste less water and energy.

mannequin said...

Wow! I would love to try this; I have been doing laundry for eternity and have yet to find one that I prefer above all the others. This sounds great!
Thanks for the chance.

PS said...

Wow, I would love to try this soap out! Thanks!!

PS said...

A green tip, we have a one cup per day rule. A quick rinse and use it again, it saves SO much space in the dishwasher!

mannequin said...

To conserve energy, because I love the way clothes look blowing in the breeze AND because I love to hang laundry, I put up a clothesline. I use it as much as possible and when it rains, I hold off on the laundry.

kevnjacks said...

Sounds like a great laundry soap for a family with 3 kiddies 4 and under! :) And a green tip: put appliances and electronic gadgets on power strips and then turn them all off at night to save electricity!

intime said...

i would love to try these soaps

mar said...

These soaps sound so fine!

Hanna said...

I cloth diaper and have heard this is one of THE best detergents to use. Would love to try it out!

mverno said...

great prize

bv said...

I would love to try this.
Bhavana
bvbabybv at gmail.com

bv said...

My green tip would be to keep a small basket or a bag in each and every room of the house to collect recyclables. If it was easy we would do it more and resist the urge to trash even tiny bits of paper in the regular trash.

Bhavana
bvbabybv at gmail.com

Tamara said...

My favorite new green thing is to carry cloth reuseable shopping bags everywhere. I have heard of their products and would be thrilled if I won, thank-you.

ChristiS said...

I'd love to win! Thank you for sharing!

michelle said...

This would be great for keeping my kids clothes stain-free...

itwasn'tme said...

thanks for the giveaway

itwasn'tme said...

fav green tip- recycling is not hard and easy to do- from reusing boxes for shipping- to reusing glass jars for storage to donating magazines to local hospitals and schools-

ky2here said...

Put a dry towel in the dryer with your wet clothes (yes, I know it's better to line dry but that's not happening this close to a major metro area, my clothes will get stolen and sniffed by some weirdo).

Your clothes dry quicker and you save energy.

Annie said...

Oh, we would love to try this product!

Thanks for the giveaway!

nancyrobster@gmail.com

Annie said...

My "green" tip (s)

always take your own bags for shopping

always turn off lights

unplug everything that sucks up power during the night

turn off the water while brushing teeth

I cool vegetable water and water my plants with it

nancyrobster@gmail.com

susan1215 said...

I use viniger and lemon juice to clean

peg42 said...

Thank you so much for this giveaway. Please enter me. Thanks.

peg42 said...

My best cleaning tip is to use vinager. I use it to wash my floors, counters, etc. Not only does it smell nice (really it does), it also does a great job at cleaning.

Carolsue said...

Soap is certainly something I'd love to win!

Bender House said...

This is great stuff. Thanks for the chance to win!

Bender House said...

My green tip: I use white distilled vinegar to clean almost everything in our house (bathroom, floors, kitchen, mirrors, windows) and I use olive oil in a spray bottle to dust on furniture. Thanks again for the chance to win!

Lo said...

This stuff looks wonderful!!

Lo said...

My green tip: use CFL light bulbs. Also, we bring reusable bags to the grocery store.

fionamae said...

i would love to try this on all my new baby's cuddly things! Anything natural is good for his sensitive skin.

Will said...

Cut your napkins in half for little children.

fionamae said...

my green tip...take a family bath every now and then!

Minute said...

Charlie's Soap sounds wonderful. I'd like to try it.

Ames said...

I've heard Charlies is the thing to use with cloth diapers (starting in Nov with #1...) It would be great to try!

Maja said...

angelina115@hotmail.com

Maja said...

unplugging appliances that are not being used, saves energy and bills are lower

with 3 kids a 3 year old and 5 month old twins 196 load of laundry is a drop in the bucket!!
Just_jennysilver@yahoo.com

chromiumman said...

never leave lights on in rooms when you're not there

Jenny said...

my green tip: use an old tissue box to store plastic shopping bags so you can reuse them when needed

amy purple said...

I would love the chance to win this, it sounds like it works miracles! thanks for the chance! pposwaps(AT)gmail.com

Cataroo said...

What a GREAT contest!! My son works at a sub shop and ALWAYS comes home with SOME unidentified SOMETHING spilled on his clothes that usually does NOT come out!

Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

Cataroo said...

My green tip? Everyone buys some sort of microwaveable meal at one point in time that comes in a plastic container. Instead of putting them in a landfill (we do not yet have recycling here), we save them and use them to heat leftovers or to take leftovers to work for lunch or even to store leftovers!!

carmen said...

I have never seen this product and would love to try it and make my difference in the world. ceegee24 at hotmail dot com

Anonymous said...

This is the first time I have heard of this product. My green tip is I use viengar to clean my ceramic tile floor with water. It gets the dirt and grime out inbetween the tiles.

divrchk said...

I'd love to give this a try.

shay77 said...

Wow. Would like to win this

Reiza said...

Ohhh great giveaways. I'd love a chance to win.

Reiza said...

For a green tip, I use vinegar instead of fabric softener. Just use it in the dispenser as you would liquid fabric softener. The chemicals in the store-bought softeners have me concerned and now there's more research that just came out recently about how they're more dangerous than we thought (and we're leaching them into the water supply when we use them).

Vinegar works just as well without the scary stuff. As long as clothes are completely dry (whether that be on the line or in the dryer), the smell won't linger.

Kimberly said...

WOW! I have never heard of this company before. I have their site bookmarked! Their products sound awesome and money saving too! That three pound bag of laundry soap would last a long, long time.

Thank you for an awesome giveaway and for sharing this site with us.

HunnyV "at" Optonline "dot" net

Kimberly said...

Here are some of my "green" tips...

- Become a member of your local Freeshare/Freecycle group (check on Yahoo groups). That way you can keep unused or unwated things out of landfills and give them away to someone who can use it or who needs it.

- Keep your showers as close to 5 minutes as you can.

- Buy a reusable water bottle and a Brita (or PUR) to fill it up when you want water instead of buying water bottles.

- Unplug applicances and electronics that are not in use (toaster, coffee pot, microwave...) so as to save energy.

- Walk! Don't drive.

Thanks!

angela said...

I would love to win this!

angela said...

My green tip is to use a solution of 50/50 vinegar and water to clean almost everything - windows, mirrors, hardwood floors, carpet stains. It really works!

Genevieve P said...

I'd love to try using this soap!

Alyce said...

This soap sounds great!

Genevieve P said...

My green tip--cloth wipes and old cloth diapers work great for cleaning up messes! We use almost no paper towels anymore.

Alyce said...

My green tip is to wear clothes several times as long as they are presentable before washing them. We also bath the kids together once a week, not more often unless they need it. We're working on getting them used to the shower. One likes the shower, the other hates it.

TinaJewel said...

I love the idea of this green soap! I could use some to get hubby's plumbing pant's clean!

TinaJewel said...

Our favorite green tip is to put the saver light bulbs in our house.

bemi said...

i would like to try this

Madam Pince said...

Charlie's Soap is the best! My hubby is chronically ill, plus we have three dogs, so stains & odors are part of my life ... but not my laundry since I started using Charlie's a year ago. The perfect green product that really works! Please pick me!

Kara said...

The soap sounds wonderful! kseger at charter dot net

kara said...

Green tip: Okay, everyone knows we should be bringing tote bags when we go shopping. But what happens when you forget? I have a rule with myself that if I forget to bring a bag I CANNOT get one from the store. So, if I end up looking like the biggest moron with a bunch of things spilling out of my arms, good - lesson learned. :)
kseger at charter dot net

Jenna said...

My "green tip" is to pay bills online when possible.

Great giveaway!

elaine said...

I would love to try this product! My green tip is to use vinegar for cleaning-not only does it work great but vinegar is also a deodorizer.

alice said...

My green tip is to buy the outlet strips for all the TV's, laptops, small appliances. That way, you can just turn the master switch off, saves electricity and money. Thanks for the contest ~ I got a lot of new tips from the comments.

oneinamil23 said...

thanks for this great giveaway!!

always turn water off when you're not using it when you're brushing your teeth!!

heard good things about charlie's soap. would like to have some and try it.

Joseph said...

We just replaced all the lightbulbs in our house with the new energy efficient ones. Our bill did go down $8 a month and the new ones are not as hot, which means using the air less! Great contest

Hil'Lesha said...

Sounds great!

Jenn S. said...

Oh how I would love to try this.

My green tip try to bike/walk whenever possible but when you have to drive fill up your gas tank at night.

Rebecca said...

Please enter me :D

legacyofbrutalitysa{at}gmail.com

Kathleen said...

My green tip is to compost! I suppose that won't work if you don't have land of your own to play with. But if you do, compost!

Rebecca said...

My green tip is simply to recycle, I tend to take our metals to our local recycling plant and spend the money we make on a treat for the family. You would be surprised how much money some people just throw away :(

legacyofbrutalitysa{at}gmail.com

Felicia Lockamy said...

thank you for a contest that will also make people think of what they can do. I never throw out plastic soda holders without cutting them up first.

teddi said...

I use a planet-friendly soap already, but I love to try new products.

Thanks.

JRG said...

I'm willing to give it a shot! Our green tip - we recycle everything we can with our neighborhood facility.

traymona said...

I have been recycling for years thanks to our garbage pickup service that provides recycling bins to use at home.
traymona[at]aol.com

Jennifer said...

We have been using Method products for quite a while now, but I have been waning to try Charlie's soap products. So many green suggestions;
reusable canvas bags for shopping
recycle
compost
use rain barrels...

Kari said...

Everyone has already posted comments with some great ideas that I cannot really add to. We already do reusable bags for shopping, recycle, garden our own veggies, cloth diaper(ed) and I use cloth pads as well. I have not yet tried Charlies, right now I use bio-kleen but I have heard great things about Charlies and would be thrilled to try them!!

Roxy said...

I'd love to give this to my boyfriend since I do my laundry at his place!

Sandy M said...

L said...

I alsways use green cleaning products.

idahomom said...

Park your SUV and start riding your bike.

clynsg said...

Charlie's Soap sounds as if it might work on my grandsons' work clothes--if it could clean jeans and tees that are worn to work in a foundry, it would certainly be amazing!

clynsg said...

Green tip--there are some things that you cannot get in really ecofriendly packaging, but often they can be recycled in another way. For example, blood test strips come in small plastic containers that make great holders for small beads, snaps, etc.

Mississippi Songbird said...

I would love to try this. I'm trying to be as green as I can be.. Thanks for hosting..

Mississippi Songbird said...

My Green tip..
I have a compost heap that I put coffe ground and egg sheels in, and then I turn the soil and use as fertizer..

Your rave reviews of Charlie's soap have me very excited. I have been trying to find a laundry soap that works for many years. Thanks.

David Johnson said...

I'd love to win it and give it a try, thanks titanicluck at gmail dot com

- Marybeth I. said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! My tip is to try and tackle going green in steps vs. all at once. It will be easier to commit to these changes. My newest task is converting our kitchen and household cleaners to "green" ones.

Rachel C. said...

I love Charlie's Soap, and I would especially love free Charlie's Soap!! :) Thanks so much for the great giveaway!

myshadow28(at)aol(dot)com

Rachel C. said...

Here's my "green" tip for an extra entry...don't throw away or buy magazines. My library has a great magazine exchange, where I can give magazines I've alreay read, and pick up a few new ones. It saves paper and trash from landfills AND money! :) Thanks again!

myshadow28(at)aol(dot)com

naturegirl said...

I try to use as many natural products as possible, so it's great to learn about Charlie's Soaps. I just went to their website and looked around. I would love to wins this prize package! Thanks!

sweetsue said...

This is the first I have heard of Charlie's Soaps. They are definitely on my "must try" list!

sweetsue said...

My green tip is to plant flowers that honeybees love (unless your allergic). With bees disappearing, this can't hurt.

Linda and Greg said...

Great giveaway!! Thanks! Cute blog as well!
anthonlm01@aol.com

Patty said...

Thanks for having this contest. I really appreciate it.

Linda and Greg said...

My green tip is easy--buy and use reusable grocery bags...they are sold everywhere and are cheap!

Also, wash clothes in cold water and hang dry...easy and it saves money.

Smooshy said...

enter me!

Smooshy said...

And get out those clothes pins and line dry!

DOODLEGIRL said...

I like the idea of a natural laundry soap

madangle said...

I have given up fabric softener and now use vinegar and/or foil balled up in the dryer. Would love to try the soap, laundry soap is one of the few few things not natural in my house.

tatertot374 said...

Thank you for having this. We are starting to become more green. We have went from 2 full large trash cans a week to 1 or 2 trash bags a week - which is mostly due to my 2 year olds diapers - poor trash guy lol.

denyse said...

I'd love to try this. Thanks for a great giveaway:)

denyse said...

Instead of using paper towels- clean w/ rags and rewash them. Also use reusuable bags not only for food- but in the stores you shop at also.

imjasonc said...

Nice giveaway, I want to win !! Thanks !!!

imjasonc said...

Recycle everything you can, and turn down the temp on your water heater.

Megan said...

We love this on our cloth diapers! Thanks for the chance to win.

Megan said...

I add eucalyptus, lemongrass, and citronella essential oils to diluted vinegar for an effective multipurpose cleaner that safely keeps bugs out of my kitchen.

PAIGE said...

Every day I try harder and hardeer to be green.

Aisling said...

Your review certainly makes me want to try this soap. (And I really like some of the suggestions other moms have posted here.) We're trying to use cloth instead of paper as much as possible. Cloth napkins are very nice - and need a good soap to get them fresh and clean.

Angela said...

As any parent, I could use this. My kids are, well, slobs. We want to be greener, but we have to be able to get really clean too. Thanks for the giveaway.

krystal said...

i wanna win.
krystal82107@hotmail.com

Amanda said...

I have such a problem getting stains out of the boys' clothes! It sounds great - thanks for the good info.

Amanda said...

My green tip is to turn the water off!! When you are brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, wiping down counters...the water shouldn't be running the whole time. I forgot the other day and my four year old walked by and told me I was wasting water!!

paula h said...

I would love to tyr this. My 4 kids are great at making messes and staining their clothes.

paula h said...

My favorite tip is to shop thrift store and yard sales whenever possible. I look at it as the ultimate way to recycle. You are keeping things out of the landfills.

Dena said...

I would love to win this. I use green detergents in my hotel as well.

Dena said...

My favorite green tip is saving plastic gallon containers from my green tea to use for water during hurricane season. I have about 9 that I can fill up as soon as we are notified about a hurricane. I always reuse water bottles and put the green tea from the gallon in those so that I can take them to work and on the go.

LisaW said...

I'd love to try this. We have 3 kids in diapers, so we go through a lot of laundry at our house!

LisaW said...

My green tip is to try cloth diapering. It's not nearly as difficult (or yucky) as you think!

bfox74 said...

This soap looks very interesting. Enter me, please.

What a cool giveaway! Thanks.

My green tip is to make your own homemade cleaning solutions - vinegar, lemon juice - stuff like that. You save money and the environment!

Jana said...

I have been wanting to try Charlie's Soap!

Jana said...

I have a spray bottle of vinegar solution that I use for just about everything. :)

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

Would love to win this awesome prize pack. Thanks for having the giveaway!

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

As for a couple of green tips, I keep a list of errands that need to be run and a big empty shopping bag by my desk. Everything goes in the bag (e.g. return X to Wal-Mart, go to bank, return books to library). Once a week I go run all the errands at once rather than running to town every day like I used to.

I have several canvas bags that we have brought home from the fair or job expos or wherever. I keep them in the trunk and use them at the grocery store instead of accepting plastic bags. If someone spills in one, they can be laundered. When they are finally worn to a frazzle I will cut off the handles and turn them into rags.

I have been washing my clothes in cold water and recycling for thirty years now.

- Marybeth I. said...

My green tip is in my other post from this morning. I am just doing this backwards!

lace said...

I've heard great things about this soap. I'd love to give it a try.

lace said...

my green tip: Get a reusable drinking container like a Klean Kanteen. You can clean it easily and it keeps you from using plastic bottles.
