Eco-Nut Review/Giveaway Closed!

Eco Nuts ™ Organic Laundry Soap!

Eco Nuts are dried fruit shells that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree in Nepal,India, and Indonesia.  These fruit shells have been used in India and China for centuries, and are now gaining popularity in America and Europe.  This laundry soap is a renewable, biodegradable, and organic alternative to chemical detergents and expensive "Green" laundry soaps.

Eco Nuts contain saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing.  Eco Nuts lifts stains from the fabric and leaves dirt suspended in the water to be washed away.

Eco Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, this makes them ideal for sensitive skin, eczema, allergies,and psoriasis. 

The antimicrobial properties of Eco Nuts also make them great for grey water and septic systems.  These shells will not foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents added.  Foam does not represent cleaning power.
HOW TO USE
  1. Place 4-5 Eco Nuts in the reusable bag, (provided) and tie closed.
  2. Put it in with your laundry and wash as you normally do, following manuf. instruct.
  3. Remove the Bag  at the end of the wash and set aside to dry.
  4. Re-use at least 5-7 times in hot water and up to 10 in cold until they start to disintegrate and then they can be composted in your garden and simply add new Eco Nuts to the bag.
 * There is no need for fabric softener, your laundry will come out soft and fluffy *

Mona at Eco Nuts has been so nice to let me review Eco Nuts for her.  I recieved Eco Nuts in the mail not long after I was told I could review for them.  I have to honestly admit that when I first opened the box of Eco Nuts I was a little overwhelmed by the smell .  As soon as I began using Eco Nut I did not have to worry about the smell staying on the clothes because it doesn't!  The clothes came out smelling fresh and clean.

*Say NO to Plastic Jugs
