GIVEAWAY and Review: Eco-Nuts Organic Baby Liquid Laundry Soap



I have always wanted to try Eco-Nuts, so I was pretty excited to be asked to review the product at home for my blog readers. I was sent both the Eco-Nuts Organic Baby Liquid Laundry Soap and the original Eco Nut Organic Laundry Soap. You can read all about What Are Soap Nuts? on their website, but in a "nut-shell" (see what I did there, apparently I think I am clever today - Ha!) it is kinda just that - the shell of a berry (not a nut) that naturally contains soap. Like I just said, it is a berry, but these hard little shells look and feel more like nuts, but they are nut-free and are nut allergy safe.


If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you will remember that in the last week or so I have been talking much more about my daughter's eczema flare up that occurred in a season not typical for her and how it was worse that usual winter flare ups. I have been trying a number of things to help get it under control and gone and we are doing really well, as it is nearly gone. One of those things is that I have switched to watching her laundry in this Eco Nuts Baby Laundry Soap. Fragrances and other products in traditional laundry soaps can be irritating for some people, especially those with skin issues. So, I need to be more careful with what goes in our laundry and make sure that her clothes for are being washed with soap that is not irritating. Now, I can't say for sure that it was a cause because I recently made many changes to help rid her of this flare-up, but it is nearly gone now and I will keep washing her laundry in this soap.

I also wanted to add that this is both septic and grey water system safe. I never used to pay attention to that, but since we have purchased a cabin with a new mound septic system, I have become very aware of looking at products that are septic safe.

This laundry soap can be used in both HE and Regular washers. The liquid soap only needs 1 tsp. for an HE washer, so I measured that out to see how many squirts it would be since I don't want to get out a measuring spoon every time and it is exactly 2 full pumps for a 1 tsp. This  oz bottle is going to last me 60 loads in my HE washer. At $12.99 for a bottle, it will only cost me about 21-cents a load to wash my clothes and it takes up hardly any space.

 Also, the bottle is made out of aluminum, so you can toss it right in the recycling with your cans, but in true SGBG fashion I will probably reuse the bottle. It has a sticker label on it that could be removed and I will clean it out inside and fill with either kids paint or refillable hand soap.

I love the "nutshell" joke - that was priceless!! ha/ha I don't have babies, but like to use safe things on my laundry, just because. You don't have to be little to not want chemicals on your body. This stuff looks great!

I just recently heard of soap nuts but have not used them. I am curious to try this because my baby boy seems to have sensitive skin and think this could do better than what I am using.
