Soap Nuts and Extreme 18 Laundry Detergent Review and Giveaway from ChildOrganics.com

Erica over at ChildOrganics.com generously offered to let me review Soap Nuts and the Extreme 18X Liquid.  I am always looking for ways to keep my laundry routine earth friendly, so I was very excited to try our both the Soap Nuts and the Extreme 18X.


First, I tried the Soap Nuts.  Soap Nuts are the most natural way to do laundry.  These funny looking little fruits are eco-friendly, biodegradable, hypoallergenic, unscented and highly effective.  I think they are super easy to use.  You just tie them into the teeny little muslin bag and toss them in the wash.  This same little bag of Soap Nuts can be used for 4 - 5 loads of laundry or diapers.  

When the diapers came out of the washer, they smelled like NOTHING!  Which is perfect for us.  I loathe artificial fragrances and cringe when I wonder what it takes to make chemicals smell like flowers.  Scary stuff.

The Soap Nuts left the diapers clean, residue free, and soft.  Just what I want for a cloth diaper routine -- easy to use, rinses clean, and all natural.  Perfection.

The Extreme 18X is a concentrated liquid version of Soap Nuts.  Just 8oz does 96 he loads!  Can you imagine how efficient it is?  It is great for the earth because it is all natural and it is so concentrated that one small bottle that can be recycled later can do up to 96 loads.   I just used a 1/2 teaspoon in my washer and the laundry came out perfect.  The results were just as wonderful as with the Soap Nuts.
