Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Review & Giveaway (FREE SAMPLE FOR ALL OF MY READERS TOO) ENDED

Winning comment is #183!
I am in love with the soup nuts I received from Green Virgin Products. I received a bag of it to review and I could not believe how well it worked. The soap nuts we received came with a little instruction card that describes all of the different ways you can use these wonderful soap nuts.




I tried them with my laundry and they worked great. Because the soap nuts do not have any scents to them. I always add couple drops of lemon essential oil to the laundry because I like the smell of it. In addition to using them to clean your laundry, you can make your own soap nuts liquid to use for dishes and as well as other house cleaning projects. I just boil 3 ounces of water per soap nut for 30 minutes and use that liquid for cleaning things around the house. The liquid is only good for 2 to 3 weeks, so don't make too much at once. The soap nuts are so awesome in the many ways you can use them, I am totally in love with them. As a matter of fact, I call them "Mother Nature's little magic nuts." LOL, I know it sounds silly, but they are seriously the best eco-friendly organic product I have ever used in my life time.

Green Virgin Products' Soap Nut products are sealed in a biodegradable plastic bag inside the cloth bag to keep them fresh. We sell only the highest quality Sapindus Mukorossi soap nuts available in the world. We import Green Virgin Soap nuts from the best growers in Northern India, high in the Himalayan Mountains. Labor is far less expensive in India so our soap nuts are harvested, dried, hand sorted, cleaned 100% debris free, deseeded, packaged and labeled there. That's why we can boast the highest quality and the lowest price. You might be able to find soap nuts as good as ours, but better soap nuts are not available at any price, period.

You want to see if the Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts are as wonderful and great as I think? You are in luck. Ken from Green Virgin is giving ALL OF MY READERS (US residents only) a sample to try out. That is right, ALL OF YOU! Email Ken at ken@greenvirginproducts.com and tell him that Sugar Pop Ribbons sent you to request a sample to try. Don't forget to include your mailing address so that Ken can mail the samples to you.

Wait, that's not all. One lucky reader will get to win an awesome prize from
Green Virgin Products. The giveaway prize includes a kilo bag of soap nuts and a stainless steel bottle with a nipple and sippy top. A kilo bag of soap nuts will allow you to do 330 loads of laundry. This giveaway is open to US residents only.

I learned that soap nuts are not actually nuts (for those who are allergic to nuts) but more like berries. "soap nuts" is just a nickname. I'd love to win these to save money and know that I'm not using toxins/chemicals on my babies' clothing (as well as my own).

I learned that clothes will last longer and colors will stay brighter longer if using soap nuts. Soap nuts will help to avoid chemical laundry detergents, fabric softeners and dryer sheets which contain chemicals classified under federal law as carcinogens, toxic and hazardous.
