Earth Berries Ltd. “Soap Nuts” Review
I’ve never really been the type to worry about the impact that the products I buy, had on the environment but over the past few years I’ve come to realize that it DOES make an impact and a HUGE one at that. Take the crazy weather we’ve been having for example! Earth Berries Ltd’s “Soap Nuts” are an all natural product that comes from the environment so it’s kind of a given that it is perfectly harmless to it! Not only is this product harmless to the Earth it’s also hypoallergenic so people with skin sensitivities can use it & despite the name “soap nut” it’s actually a berry, so it’s safe for people with nut allergies too 🙂
I honestly thought the little amount was only enough for one load of clothes but your actually able to re-use the soap nuts until they become flimsy and transparent, making them good for approximately 10 loads (sample size). The best part about that is that you can boil the nuts to make a liquid soap instead of using the sac that is included if you’d prefer. Another great thing about these is that they go from the wash to the dryer and work as a static reducer! A little tip: if you use cold water to wash your clothes you have to soak the bag (with the nuts inside) in a warm glass of water to activate them. Before you throw it in the wash you can use the soap nuts to pre-treat stains by simply rubbing the the bag on the stain so it becomes sudsy!
Did I mention they make your clothes smell like they were hung outside? Well they do and it turns out they’re compost-able after they’ve run out of washing use, another way they are harmless to the Environment 🙂 These soap nuts don’t exactly smell like roses or Gain if you will, but rest assured your clothes WILL NOT smell like the berries and that they will be free of any chemicals that may be present in other detergents!
This is most definitely a product I would love to see available in retail stores, which I have been informed is currently in the works 🙂 I for one will definitely be a regular buyer when it hits store shelves, not only because they are Eco-friendly but also because Earth Berries Ltd. is a fair trade company based in Canada!
So if you have skin irritations or just want to do your part in reducing the damage we are doing to the planet, this is a product I highly recommend 🙂
