Eco Nuts Soap Nuts Review

8 Jan

When I first read someone’s blog that they were using Eco Nuts soap nuts to wash their cloth diapers, I thought to myself how can a bunch of nuts clean stinky cloth diapers. I  must say that I was intrigued by these nuts because I started researching Eco Nuts and even asked a few moms who used them “how well do they clean the diapers”? I also contacted the owners of Eco Nuts and they explained all the benefits of using Eco Nuts to me and sent me some information.

What Caught My Eyes on the brochures was that they were NOT MAN MADE.

Eco Nuts™  Soap Nuts are a berry that grows in the Himalayas that naturally produces a soap. The soap is called saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away. Eco Nuts™ are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil

Both my girls have eczema and detergent is just one of the many things that cause a flare up. I was out of my element because I though this would the perfect detergent for us but I was also nervous because I didn’t really believe that the nuts would work.

I got a few samples of both the nuts and the liquid. I told you before that I didn’t trust the nuts so I tried the liquid first. The dryer didn’t even come to a complete stop before I grabbed the diapers out of the dryer and sniffed…NOTHING… absolutely nothing! I ran to the living room and gave the diapers to my mother-in-law to smell and she said “Hmm I don’t smell anything.” I then ran to my husband and gave the diapers to him to do the smell test.  “I don’t smell anything he told me.  I told him that I washed the diapers with the Eco Nuts detergent. He said to me “there you go now you have a soap for the girls that you don’t need to worry about.”

A few days later we lost power. I had to hand wash my diapers so I decided to use the Eco nuts since I was still testing them but I also didn’t want to use anything else that could cause any skin irritations since I wasn’t going be wearing a gloves. I am happy to report that they came out nice and clean.

After about a month, I finally decided it was time to try the nuts and I will tell you I that cheated and added some liquid as well…I know.  The second time I didn’t though and must say there was no big difference in how they cleaned the diapers. Now that I got used to using the nuts, I can’t decide which I love better the nuts or the liquid.

After testing out the Eco nuts soap for a few months and I haven’t had any issues with it, I decided to add it to our store Natural Pure Essentials . If you have used Eco nuts, feel free to leave a comment on how it works for you.
