Charlie's Soap

This doesn't really fall under boat equipment, but it does fall under cruising stuff. My daughter has been using Charlie's Soap for a couple years because it's the only kind that doesn't cause her two sons to break out in a rash. It's incredibly concentrated - only one tablespoon per load, it's hypoallergenic, and it's non-toxic. It's also reasonably priced which is not something you can say about just any boat product.

It's not really designed as a laundry soap for boats, but there are a couple features that make it perfectly suited for that. Since it's super concentrated, you can get a lot of loads in a compact container. The 100-load container is about the size of a large grapefruit. It's plastic so it won't break, and it has a wide-mouth screw on lid that means it's watertight. No spilled laundry soap if you take a knockdown (which I hope you don't but better safe than sorry).The powder literally dissolves in a few seconds and it's low-sudsing so you don't need a lot of water to wash or rinse with - perfect for those bucket laundry washers. But does it work, you say? Absolutely. Better than anything else I've used before. Oh, and my husband says his skin doesn't itch anymore like it used to.
