NaturOli Nuts Soap Nuts

Posted

Pros: Excellent quality, most whole nuts, highly effective, all packaging is recyclable.

Cons: haven't found any yet

I tried NaturOli's Nuts after trying three other suppliers. I noticed the difference right away when I opened the muslin bag. The soap nuts were bigger than the other companies. They were almost all whole nuts.

 

When I made the first batch of soap nuts liquid which I use in the dishwasher I noticed a really big difference. Usually when I poured cold tap water onto the other companies' soap nuts I got a bubble or two. When I did that with the ones I got from NaturOli I got lots of bubbles, and that was with cold tap water.

 

I also noticed that it is easier to be sure I use the right amount in the laundry because I don't have to stand and count half nuts and pieces of nuts.

 

Oh and everything from the shipping box to the packaging in the box for the other things I purchased was recyclable. When I opened it I was really impressed with the care they take with every thing they sell and ship.

Pros: green, safe, hypoallergenic, fragrance free, eliminates need for softeners and dryer sheets, easy to use

Cons: doesn't remove tough greasy stains so still need to pretreat some stains

For anyone who suffers from allergies or has any skin sensitivities, soap nuts may be your dream come true. From laundry, to dishes, to washing the car, to personal hygiene - soap nuts provide chemical free solutions. These are remarkable gifts that nature has provided us. The natural skin care company NaturOli has introduced these little gems and is heavily promoting them in the US. Rather than explaining a lot here, NaturOli provided a good bit of information in an easy to understand format:  http://www.naturoli.com/soapnuts/  This is oriented towards use as a green and natural detergent, however I have been told that this is simply the beginning and that they have MANY soap nut based formulas (even hair and body care products) will be released soon. Excellent! In the meantime, just read a bit, try some, and let you imagination be your only limitation. My home is almost void of chemicals now. I can't recommend these any higher. To know and understand what they offer is to love them. How these have stayed in such relative obscurity for so long is beyond me. They have been used in the eastern hemisphere for centuries. Thank you NaturOli. More importantly, thank you Mother Nature! You always have answers for us. Guess we just need to listen a little harder.

How To Use Soap Nuts Natural Laundry Detergent :

 

 Warm or Hot Water Wash:
- Put 3 to 5 shells in cotton or muslin drawstring bag and tie bag securely. Halves and pieces are totally fine.
- Toss in washing machine. (Soap nuts will last longer using warm vs. hot water.)
- Remove from washer to dry at end of wash.
- Re-use 3 to 5 times. Nuts are no longer effective when they turn soft and gray.

Cold Water Wash:
- Soak 3 to 5 shells in bag in about a cup of very hot water for approximately 3 minutes.
- Pour water and bag in wash.

NOTE: If you prefer, simply grind them to a very fine powder using a coffee grinder, blender, or food processor. Use 3-4 teaspoons per load (either warm or cold water).
