Maggie's Pure Land Soap Nuts: Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

>> Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Winners have been chosen by and they have been notified. When I hear back from all the winners I will post the information here. Congratulations!

What are Soap Nuts?
Maggie’s Soap Nuts are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry Tree (Sapindus mukorrosi), related to the lychee and rambutan. The Soap Nuts are harvested in Indian and Indonesian jungles. The Soap Nuts fall to the ground where they are collected by local folks who have used them for centuries.

How to use Soap Nuts & my review
I've done a review of soap nuts before, so when Maggie's Pure Land contacted me about doing a review I really didn't expect it to much different than other soap nuts I have used. Boy, was I wrong! They sent me two products to try. They sent me a box of Soap Nuts and a bottle of the liquid Lavender Tea Tree Soap.

First thing I noticed was these soap nuts were far different than the other soap nuts I tried. They were better! All of the soap nuts were whole, no little pieces in the package. Just put 2 of these Soap Nuts in the cloth bag (included with your Soap Nuts) and toss it in the washer with your clothes. That's it! You don't have to worry about taking it out during the rinse cycle because Soap Nuts are non-sudsing; any little bit of saponin left in the rinse adds softness and body to your clothes - so you don't need to use a fabric softener. They work amazing! They cleaned my clothes incredibly well and everything smells so fresh and clean - not heavily perfumed like with regular laundry detergents.

Then I tried the liquied lavender tea tree soap. Oh my gosh. I am in love with this laundry soap. I love how it's already in the liquid form to use (you can also boil the soap nuts and make your own liquid soap for cleaning, laundry and body use). What I really loved was the scent. It smelled so good. It's very lightly scented; which is perfect for me as I am sensitive to smells. You only need to use 1/8 of a cup of the liquid for a full load of clothes! I love washing the sheets with this and hanging them on the line - so nice! Also, Soap Nuts & the liquid are safe to use in any machine.

Take a look at their flyer that they distribute to stores with their product - don't you love it!?  This was the biggest reason that I wanted to do this review. As a breastfeeding mother and a lactivist, I was very eager to share these products and this company with you. I think this is a huge and positive step for normalizing breastfeeding. It says a lot about their philosophy that they are eager to support breastfeeding and I am more than happy to support their company. I hope you will support them as well and let others know about this great, eco-friendly, breastfeeding supportive company.
