As a fashionista, you can imagine that I care a lot about my clothes, especially those pieces that I’ve invested in. Laundering is something that I’m very particular about.
But in addition to being concerned for my apparel, I’m also concerned about my skin, which doesn’t react well to harsh chemicals. In the past, I’ve had episodes of rashes on my arms and legs due to an allergy to harsh laundry detergent. So while I need something effective to clean my clothes, I also need something gentle. That’s where Green Virgin Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent comes in.
Soap Nuts Liquid is made with USDA Certified Organic Sapindus Mukorossi Soap Nuts (a berry that grows on the Chinese Soap Berry Tree), making it non-toxic and eco-friendly. Now, not only is this good for your skin, but it’s good for the earth, too. In an HE washer, you only need about two to three pumps of Soap Nuts Liquid to clean your clothes. In a regular washer, you might need four. One 16 ounce bottle can wash up to 240 loads.
At first, I was skeptical. How could a detergent with no harsh chemicals and no perfume smells get my laundry clean? And how could only four pumps work? Better yet, Soap Nuts Liquid is a reddish color – isn’t that going to stain my light colored clothes?
So I really put the product to the test. I used it on a large load of very soiled white and ivory colored towels. And without adding bleach or liquid softener, my towels came out fresh, soft, and spotlessly clean. Even the hand towel that had mascara and makeup on it came out super clean, without the need for spot treatment. And despite the color of Soap Nuts Liquid, it did not leave any color or residue behind on my towels. The color of the detergent is a non-issue.
I am so relieved to have found an alternative to regular store-bought laundry detergent. If you worry about the chemicals you bring into your household, expose your family to, and dump into the earth, then you really want to give Green Virgin Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent a try.
