Review with Giveaway for EcoNuts! (US/Canada Only, Ends 05/24/13)


Have you ever thought about what is in your laundry detergent? Lots of chemicals are in the mainstream brands! Have you ever thought about switching to a more natural detergent? I prefer more natural detergents, not just for cloth diapers, but our clothing, bedding and towels and such, too.



I received a 10 load sample pack of Eco Nuts to review for all of you!
This is what it looks like inside the box -




Basically, you place those little nuts inside the little bag and use it as detergent. Seems odd, huh? It takes about 10 loads for those loads to break down enough that they are not really cleaning much any more.  Because these are not TRUE nuts, they are safe to use if you have nut allergies!


It came with a little instructions sheet as well.


Want to see them in action??


And this is what they looked like after their first load - 





 See how they broke apart slightly? That is how you know that they are working!

Here they are after a second load of laundry!




After each wash, they broke down a little further. Even though it said up to 10 loads on the box, I tried to push them to their limits to see how far they would clean! I finally threw them away after 13 loads! And my clothes were still coming out clean. At that point though, they were only itty bitty pieces left in the bottom of the bag and I was afraid of them escaping the bag.

I was very impressed with how clean our laundry was while using the Eco Nuts. Not only did everything come out clean and stain free, but there was no odor to anything either! I especially liked that they are safe to use on cloth diapers!

Eco Nuts recently won the About.com Best of Laundry Awards - two in fact - Best Eco Friendly Detergent and Best Detergent for those with Allergies!

Eco Nuts also has a great page that has lots of information about soap nuts in a well organized format on their website - check it out - 
Plus they have an FAQ section! http://econutssoap.com/soap-nuts-faq/


ONE LUCKY WINNER WILL RECEIVE A 100 LOAD BOX OF ECO NUTS!!

  1. It just doesn’t seem possible that these little nuts can naturally clean laundry with my kids dirty clothes in a load! I’m very interested to see how this works!
