Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent Review

As a mom, I'm all for natural products.  Before I had a little one to think about, I used natural products but wasn't consciously looking for them and paying a close eye to ingredients.  If it happened to be natural, awesome!  If not, oh well.  But now, its all I think about!  So when I heard about soap nuts laundry soap during my cloth diapering research, I was skeptical.  I just thought it sounded odd.  It was something I had never heard of and had never tried and of course....we always fear the unknown.  So when I was given a sample of Soap Nuts Liquid by Green Virgin Products I was eager to give it a go and try it out!


Its super concentrated so the 8oz. bottle I got will go a long long way.  It came in a convenient pump bottle.  And surprising, this little bottle can handle 120 loads in an HE machine!  That's a lot of laundry for one little bottle.  We have a standard machine and I love it to be honest.  I thought to myself....what would be a good test load?  And then it came to me!  We had just gone swimming and I hadn't had a chance to wash our suits yet.  So....I threw in our soggy chlorine soaked swimming suits and a few pairs of stinky baby pajamas and some shirts that Emma wore during meals....ya know.....the ones with the extra food smudges all down the front.


My first thought was.....hmm...not much for suds.  BUT....one thing I've learned.  That's a good thing!  Just because your laundry detergent doesn't fill your machine with suds, doesn't mean its not working.  Actually, most of the time when you have a lot of suds, you actually have too much soap.  And too much soap can leave residue on your clothes.  Yuck!  For a cloth diaper mom, laundry detergent residue is NOT good!!!  So the lack of suds actually made me happy.


  So.....what happened after washing?  hat do ya Well....I washed and rinsed and to my surprise, everything came out clean and fresh!  I'm not a skeptic anymore!  This stuff works great!

And to top off the fact that it actually works and works well....its all natural and 100% non-toxic!  Have you heard those horror stories in the news lately of children putting laundry pods in their mouths and getting admitted to the hospital for poisoning?  Well this is all natural and non-toxic so no worries with this stuff!  The soap nuts liquid makes your clothes so soft that you don't even need fabric softener and its hypoallergenic and has a net negative carbon footprint.  So many plus factors in my book!  After trying this stuff, I would definitely continue to use it and would recommend it.  I cant wait to try it on our cloth diapers!!

If you want to give this stuff a go for yourself....Check out Green Virgin Products online and order some before your next laundry day!
