Never heard of soap nuts? These are pretty incredible if you ask me. If you’re trying to live as green as possible and use products that are organic and completely natural… soap nuts are definitely for you! Soap nuts are the ONLY type of detergent that actually grows on TREES! And Green Virgin Products purchases the highest quality of soap nuts (USDA Certified Organic) available.
You can use soap nuts in their natural form (in a small wash bag of course) or you can purchase a liquid detergent made from these soap nuts. I have used soap nuts in their natural form, and we loved them! We used them on our cloth diapers for a while before moving into our new house… that has SUPER hard water. They didn’t work well on our diapers with the hard water, but they did still work great on our clothing and linens.
I was excited to the have the opportunity to review a liquid form of soap nuts, we’ve been having a hard time with our towels coming out feeling a little crunchy and not so clean. I know it’s from our hard water, but it seemed that whether we used organic detergents made for our cloth diapers or regular old detergent, our hard water was just making it difficult to get the soft fluffy towels we love so much. I think this liquid soap nut detergent was our solution!
It’s recommended to use 2 pumps of the liquid detergent in a front load HE washer or 3 pumps in an average load in your top load washer. I actually used 4 in my top load HE washer with a full load of towels. I also added a capful of Calgon to help soften the water.
My towels came out soft, fluffy and they smelled great! I haven’t yet tried this particular soap nut form on our clothing, but I hope to do that soon. You can find this particular detergent, or the nut form at Green Virgin Products website. They even have some bar soaps if you’re interested in trying those! Once you go to the website, you can enter your email and get 10% off your ENTIRE order! So hurry over and try some soap nuts!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.Thank you so much for checking out Mustard Seed Mommy - be sure to check out my social media sites at the right side of this site!
