I have seen soapnuts around the blogosphere and they have always piqued my interest. So when Maggie's pureland contacted me with a review opportunity I just couldn't pass it up!
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review both the soapnuts and the Lavender Tea Tree liquid soap.
The soapnuts were super easy to use. I just placed 4 of the soapnuts in the included bag and tossed them in with my laundry. The first load had some slightly mildewed clothing mixed in. I had some reservations on using the soapnuts on these, but figured it would be a great way to put it to the test. I am glad I did since the clothes smelled fresh and clean after the first wash. When drying this same load of clothes I forgot to add the dryer sheet. Interestingly the clothes were static free. This never happens to me no dryer sheet usually mean extreme static!
A few interesting facts about soapnuts . . .
"Maggie’s Soap Nuts are actually a dried fruit related to the lychee. People with nut allergies can safely use Soap Nuts! "
"Yes! Maggie's Soap Nuts are low-sudsing and are ideal for high-efficiency washers. "
"Yes! The saponin in Maggie’s Soap Nuts releases quickly into hot water,and more slowly in cold water"
I would definitely recommend soapnuts to others. There are so many pros and I can not think of any cons at all!
The lavender Tea Tree liquid soap worked great too! My clothes smelled fresh and clean and I loved the scent of the Lavender Tea Tree liquid soap! So relaxing and refreshing a great reason for getting the clothes in the wash! I only had to use an ounce of the liquid soap to do a whole load of clothes! A little bit of the Lavender Tea Tree liquid Soap went a long way and left me with clean clothes!
A few interesting facts about the Lavender Tea Tree liquid soap . . .
"No toxic by-products or wastes."
"No man-made chemicals left in the environment or on your clothes and body"
"The fragrance disappears during washing leaving only the wonderful soap nut clean smell"
