I was contacted a little while back by the super friendly Kim of Yorganics. She wanted to introduce me to her organic laundry products & so she sent me the laundry sampler & a lip balm to try. Read about Kim's interesting story here.
The product that intrigued me the most was the soap nuts. They are dried fruit berries that fall from trees in Northern India & Nepal. Their outer shells contain saponin, which creates a natural soap when agitated in water. You just put about 5 of the nuts into a little wash bag, which comes with the sampler. Then you toss them in the water before you add your clothes to the washing machine. You can use the same bag of soap nuts for 4-6 washes.
My clothes came out just as clean with these yoreganic soap nuts as they do with detergent. There wasn't a scent to these & so my clothes came out without a scent. This is something to keep in mind, but this is definitely a feature that many would be interested in.
A little more info about the soap nuts:
- EcoCert certified organic, so no chemicals or pesticides.
- sustainable & biodegradable
- hypoallergenic, good for those w/ allergies, eczema & psoriasis
- works in all washing machines
- excellent for cloth diapers
I also used the Brightens & Whitens on my load of towels, because not only does it remove stains, but it restores absorbency because it strips detergent residue. I was pleased with the results. My towels felt great.
Then there was the lip balm. I fell in love with the lip balm. It is so, so smooth & makes your lips tingle just a little bit. I love it. You will too!
