I just thought I would tell everyone about a product called Soap Nuts. They have been used for thousand of years in places like India and Nepal for washing faces, cleaning kitchens, doing laundry etc. They grow on tree's and when put into water and agitated they create their own natural soap like bubbles which also contain their own bacteria fighting properties. They are cheap and VERY eco friendly. I have ordered mine online and use them for my laundry and washing my face in the mornings. You can reuse them a handful of times as well so it makes them extra cheap to buy. Here is a random website I found online that sells them: http://www.naturoli.com/store/naturolinuts.htmlBut there are tons of places that distribute them around the U.S and I was lucky enough to find a place that is close to me. I really recommend them as they do work. Usually wherever you buy them from will give you a bag to fill with two or three of them and you just place it in your washer. It has an odd vinegar like smell to it but by the end of the wash the smell is gone and your clothes have a very clean (natural clean not the "clean" scented smell laundry soaps advertise) smell. I urge everyone to give them a try. I have used them to clean my kitchen and windows a couple times as well. I LOVE THEM!
Yes! I was skeptical but am very pleased by the outcome. Sometimes when I put them in the washer I give them a hard shake in the water to get the suds going. They wont create a ton of suds but they are there. And the stuff from inside will go into the water even if you don't see the suds. That is what really washes the clothes. Hope you like them!!
I've had a stash of these in my laundry room for a while. They are great! I'm so sensitive to laundry detergents and these are fantastic. I love how fresh, but not scented my clothes are when I use them.
Saw a reader's post on NaturOli's Facebook page and found your blog! Hi, Ashley! Hi, Alicia! It's my pleasure. Been a fan of Alicia's since she was just a young girl. Knew she was going somewhere back then. (Am pretty good at recognizing real talent.)
Just fyi: If you want to just learn a lot more about soap nuts, you should find http://www.soapnuts.pro/ very useful and informative. It's not a store, but is packed with articles, FAQs, studies, etc.
