Buy Soap Nuts Review and Giveawy

In my quest for green and eco friendly products, I came across Buy Soap Nuts. It’s a different way to clean.

Soap nuts are small berry like fruits that grow in warm, tropical and sultry climates. They are native to India, Nepal and some other South Asian countries and consist of a small yellowish Brown fruit covered by a hard outer covering. It is the former that is mostly used in the various products that are now available in the market. The main ingredient in soap nuts is saponins which make them an excellent cleaning utility that can be used to clean almost everything ranging from clothes to dishes and regular household cleaning.

There are a number of ways in which soap nuts can be used to make our living greener, natural and more environmental friendly. You can use Soap Nuts to wash clothes, clean your house and even use to clean yourself.

This scrub pad is made from 100% coconut coir fiber bound together by a non-toxic adhesive. SafixTM coconut coir fiber scrub pads have the following advantages:

* Never rust, splinter or fall apart after just a few uses.
* Easily remove baked on, burnt and stubborn greasy deposits from all types of utensils and dishes.
* Use less detergent.
* No foul odor and extremely hygenic.
* Last for months
* Each scrub pad is biodegradable and may be composted after use.

SAFIXTM scrub pad have revolutionized cleaning. You can feel the difference when compared to other available scrub pads. Dishwashing is effortless, and with no more foul odor, ensuring total cleanliness.

The story behind this innovative product is begins with a journey to Rural India. Women there are still using loose coconut fiber to clean their dishes. This wonder fiber is a gift from nature discovered in India to be used as an inexpensive scrubber.

I recently tried the Soap Nuts in my laundry. I used them on our towels and they worked great! I’m not sure if I’ll use them for all my laundry, but I will definitely use them.

This would make a great gift for the person trying to go green.

Buy Soap Nuts has offered one Mommy Has to Work reader a 500g bag of soap nuts and a Coconut Scrub pad.

I will be following your site from now on and recommending you to my sister (she's a big fan of ecofriendly products). I'll be adding you to facebook. Why do you say that you may not use the soapnuts on all your clothes? Just curious.

    I'm not sure, I guess I like my clothes to "smell" and the Soap Nuts do not smell. I might try it on my clothes. When I used it on my towels there was just no smell, which isn't bad.

They also have instructions on how to create a soap nut liquid for use as shampoo, skin soap or also as detergent in your clothes washer.
