Last month, I had the opportunity to try Naturoli Soap Nuts, and fell in love with this ecological and highly effective laundering option. Along with the soap nuts, I received a sample of Extreme 18X, a liquid concentrate of soap nuts.
We have an HE washer, so I use 1/2 a teaspoon for a full wash. You read that correctly. One half teaspoon for a load of laundry. Again, I was skeptical, and again, NaturOli made me a believer. I’ve put NaturOli’s Extreme 18X to the test. A load of cloth diapers; they came out smelling fresh (but I will add that I found more staining left over than usual). A few loads of clothes; they came out smelling like my husband’s deodorant (this is normal – it may take a few washes to get previous laundry detergent/ fabric softener scents out of your clothing). A large load of towels; they came out smelling fresh.
I love laundering using NaturOli soap nuts and Extreme 18X concentrate for several reasons:
- It’s an all-natural option, free of harsh chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin
- It’s scent-free; no obnoxious or cloying scents
- No large containers cluttering the laundry area and filling the recycling bin
A truly versatile product, I’ve even used Extreme 18X as a kitchen cleaner. I simply add a tablespoon of liquid soap nuts to an empty spray bottle and fill halfway with water. The soap nuts solution does a wonderful job cleaning my granite countertops, stovetop and sink. If you’re looking for natural cleaning products, or are looking to make the switch to greener living, you should give NaturOli Soap Nut products a try!
