I'm abandoning Shaklee & Charlie's soaps
I used Shaklee laundry detergent (powder) for nearly a year and then switched to Charlie's. I've been using their powder and their liquid versions for a few months. I'm not satisfied with the results from Shaklee or Charlie's. My whites are dull and dingy. My DH's lycra cycling bibs and my lycra running pants consistently come out of the washing machine with splotches of a white film on them. I guess I'm going to have to try a regular HE detergent like Tide and see if things improve.
I'm using a one year-old GE Harmony HE washer and dryer. I don't use bleach. I add liquid OxiClean to my white loads and also use it for a pre-soak cycle for my colored clothes from time to time.
I have read alot of posts here about how to get whites white and all that - I'm just feeling frustrated because I'm tired of experimenting with products that don't provide the results I hoped for. So I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening.
