SoapNuts for Everyone!

Snuggly, fresh laundry, anyone? Remember my previous review on SoapNuts from Laundry Tree? Since my last post about SoapNuts, my mother, who is not a hippy, has embraced SoapNuts. And some friends of mine, who ARE hippies, are exploring the possibility of stocking SoapNuts in their store. SoapNuts cross the barriers of age, creed, color, religion, and lifestyle. Hooray for SoapNuts!

Now, LaundryTree is giving away 5 SoapNuts samples to 5 lucky My Greening readers! And ONE lucky winner will receive a SoapNuts Starter Pack, which is a 100g package of SoapNuts and 1 oz. of scented oil in the aroma of your choice! That is a value of $15.00!




Reasons why SoapNuts are good for the environment:

  • One little drawstring bag of 3 to 4 SoapNuts can be used FOUR TIMES! The same four SoapNuts can wash 4 loads of laundry!
  • SoapNuts are organically grown (chemical free!).
  • SoapNuts are biodegradable. After they have done their four loads of laundry (did you just READ THAT?), just toss them into the compost pile.
Since SoapNuts are free of chemicals, they are great for sensitive skin (like eczema). I'm really loving SoapNuts for my entire family!

I was thinking how convenient SoapNuts would be for traveling...no zip-lock bag of detergent to spill when you are trying to do laundry on vacation (in the condo or laundry mat)!

If you check out the website, there are recipes for making other types of cleaning supplies out of SoapNuts...try SoapNut Soak!

LaundryTree
would like to give away samples of SoapNuts to FIVE MyGreening readers! The sample size includes 8 SoapNuts...enough for up to 8 loads of laundry!

To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me which of the scented oils from Laundry Tree you would like if you are the BIG SoapNuts Starter Kit Winner ($15 value)!

FIVE winners will be chosen to receive a SoapNuts Sample pack.

This contest will close on June 17, 9pm CST.

A total of SIX winners will be selected by Random Number Generator.

If you don't win, or if you just need to restock,

Laundry Tree has also offered to extend the discount code for My Greening readers! Until 7/1/08, you can get 10% off the 100g bag of SoapNuts using the coupon code MYGREENING.

My favorite scent would have to be plumeria, aka frangiapani in the SE Asian part of the world.

Sweetpeas said...

I think I'd try the "energy" blend since I have all the single EOs already in my EO box.

TheAngelForever said...

These are quite fascinating to me. Assuming I use a fragrance (often they bother my allergies) the sweet orange sounds good.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Naomi said...

Plumeria! I miss smelling them all the time.

lace said...

I've tried soapnuts and find them fascinating. I would love to win the starter kit. How great would that be.

I would really like to try the "ocean breeze" fragrant oil. The soap nuts sound almost too good to be true. I am so glad there is a more eco-friendly option to doing laundry.

It is a toss up between the lemon and baby powder scents for me. I adore both.

Thanks for the chance!
