We Be Soap Nuts Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #26!





Soap Nuts are a safe, effective, green, chemical free. The cost of using soap nuts for your laundry is as low as 4 cents a load. I know, it's hard to believe that something that looks so plain can be so effective and awesome. If you haven't try soap nuts before, you really have to give them a go because they are incredible.

We recently received a 4 oz. package of soap nuts from We Be Soap Nuts to review. The soap nuts came in a natural muslin bag and comes with a muslin drawstring wash bag too.




After trying We Be Soap Nuts, we thought that the soap nuts worked well. We also tried making our own liquid hand soap with the soap nuts (by boiling the nuts in water for 30 minutes). We were really happy with how it turned out too.

Soap nuts can replace a lot of household cleaning products, so we highly recommend giving it a try.

To buy your own soap nuts, please go to We Be Soap Nuts to make your purchase.

Many thanks to Chris of We Be Soap Nuts for generously offering a 4 oz bag of soap nuts as a giveaway prize to one of my lukcy readers (US residents only please).

The saponins that are in the nuts create a naturally low suds detergent so they are ideal for high efficiency washers and carpet cleaners! Very cool. Thanks for the chance. bekki1820cb at gmail

1 oz of soapnuts will wash 10 loads of clothes. With 4 oz priced at 10.99 and doing 40 loads, that means I can do a load for about .27 cents! And with no need for fabric softener, I can save even more. Added bonus - since they smell like vinegar, I won't have to add some to the wash water to get the "smellys" out of my husbands work clothes. kyes731 at aol dot com

Soap nuts release their cleaning power with warm or hot water but you can also prepare them for use with cold water or make a liquid laundry soap that can last up to 2 weeks.
