Fluffdom Express: Eco Nuts {CLOSED}

closeup.jpg
Our Trial Size
 Can you really wash cloth diapers with a "soap nut"? 

Let me tell you about one of my two top faves for detergents and why I think they're great for using in a hospital setting. 

But first I want to share with you what a "soap nut" really is. Eco Nuts™ are completely sustainable dried fruit shells that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree in Nepal, India and Indonesia. The ones we harvest come from high up in the Himalayas and are the highest quality "soap nut" on the market.
I'll admit that I was very curious to see how well the Eco Nuts would get the gunkies out of the microfiber inserts. The first time or two, I didn't notice a big difference when I'd smell the inserts. But with each wash after, they smelled cleaner and cleaner. Is it funny that I smell the inserts and prefolds before putting the in the dryer? or do you do it too? 


 The thing that intrigued me most about the Eco Nuts, is that they are hypoallergenic and no one has ever complained that they cause any diaper rashes.That is one of the great things about Eco Nuts... what are the other good things about them?

In J's many hospital stays, we found that liquid and powder detergents were continually leaking into suitcases and bags. Basically Eco Nuts are dried balls in a cotton bag. And they don't leak all over the place either. You use 5 nuts for 6-10 loads of laundry and just by taking 10-15 nuts that will get you through at least a two week stay. The only thing that was hard was finding the bag in all the diapers!


Don't want to get a whole big box of Eco Nuts? They offer a trial box with enough nuts for 6-10 loads.

Are you wanting to try Eco Nuts? Then here's your chance. 
Mona has generously offered for one (1) reader to win their own 50/90 load box of Eco Nuts. (Yes, I'm jealous of the winner!)

***Giveaway CLOSED***
winner is #12: Cloth Chronicles
