If you're like most families, the high cost of liquid detergents and the bad ingredients in them, have you looking for natural soaps and detergents. Did you know In Europe it is actually illegal to sell American laundry detergents, and fabric softeners, because they contain so many banned toxic chemicals? That was a shocker for me to find out! 

But I have a great natural option for you to check out!
 
Last month I told you about the Green Virgin Liquid Soap Nuts Laundry Detergent:

I LOVE the liquid detergent, but was intrigued with the Green Virgin Soap Nuts themselves, 
and was quite happy to review them as well!

Your order of soap nuts comes in a sealed plastic bag, inside a large cotton bag, along with a smaller cotton bag to put your soap nuts in for washing. Each large bag is supposed to contain enough soap nuts to wash 83 loads. Yes I said 83 loads!

They look a little weird, don't they?

All you need to is to add about 3/5 of them to the smaller bag, and throw it in with your laundry in your washing machine! You don't even need any fabric softener (another way to save money and keep chemicals from your laundry!)

It is preferred to break the soap nuts apart, or in half, and then put them in the drawstring bag- so that water can circulate freely through the inside of them. This allows the saponin (the cleaning agent) to be released more easily and adds more power. You can use soap nuts regardless of what kind of washer you have! You can use each small bag load for 4-6 loads with a top loading washer, 7-9 with a HE washer.

 I had full size loads and got 5 out of my first try with them- this included towels, denim jeans, blankets, whites (!!) and delicates! You can see the difference above- they shrink up and get brittle, when all the saponin is gone out of them! If you're not sure, if they are still good, you can put your used wash nuts into a jar of water with a lid and shake it. If they are still good, they will create suds and you can use them again. Just pour the the soapy water from the jar into your washer, and put your soap nuts back into their bag and put it in the washer too! Easy peasy! You would NOT believe how much DIRT came out in the water! I was SHOCKED. It was worse than when I used the Soap Nuts Liquid! 

I am a new fan of the Green Virgin Soap Nuts! Especially since using them has brought my cleaning cost for each load of laundry down to 10 cents per load! 

Did you just pass out? Yup, I said 10 CENTS. If you buy the larger bags of the Green Virgin Soap Nuts, (they have them in 165 and 330 loads per bag containers) you can save even more! They even have sample bags for $2, so you can try them out for 6/7 loads, before committing to a larger purchase!

So head on over and check them out today! You'll be VERY happy you did!
