Today’s giveaway will have you washing your clothes for a whole year for free, without chemicals!!
Soap nuts are such a fabulous product. You can’t get much more natural than something straight from Mother Nature!
I mentioned on my Facebook page one day that I had always wanted to try soap nuts and the very kind girls from Pure Revolution Soap Nuts promptly posted me some to try.
So, what is a soap nut? (No, it’s not someone crazy about soap!)
Soap nuts are small outer shells of a berry grown on trees. Soap nuts contain saponin, a naturally foaming surfactant which acts like detergent when immersed in water. This creates a 100% safe, natural and chemical-free substitute for normal detergents.
Here are some great reasons to use soap nuts:
- Do your laundry from as little as 10 cents a wash
- Completely natural – absolutely no chemicals!
- Antimicrobial (ie. a natural disinfectant)
- Environmentally friendly
Soap nuts can also be used as an effective head lice treatment, nappy wash, dishwashing liquid, hand soap, glass cleaner and general household cleaner by making them into a liquid.
I must admit I was a little bit skeptical. Were they going to work on my kid’s grotty sports clothes? Yes! They did. Very impressed.
They leave absolutely no smell on your clothes, so they are perfect for anyone with allergies or sensitivities.
You reuse the soap nuts several times and then they can go into the compost. Cool.
Pure Revolution is run by Queensland natural new age mums, Emma and Emily. They both share an interest in health, nutrition, environmental protection and improving the quality of daily life. They discovered soap nuts when Emma was searching for a non-toxic option for washing her first child’s cloth nappies.
Take a look at the website for some more info. The girls offer free shipping on every order. I love the little calico bag they send the soap nuts in too, as it explains how to use the soap nuts and how to make the liquid.
So, are you interested in trying them out for yourself?
