About the Company

Eco Nuts

Nothing feels better than fresh, clean laundry. But what if the products you’re using are actually dirty? Most conventional laundry detergents are hiding irritating ingredients masked by the cover-all word, “fragrance”. Likewise, while dryer sheets can help clothes stay soft and fresh-smelling, they typically contain toxic chemicals, that cling to fabric and vent into the air we breathe. Plus, being single-use is hardly a green choice!
Eco Nuts laundry products are revolutionizing the way we think about laundry. They are dedicated to creating products with high quality ingredients that are effective, eco-friendly, and ethically-sourced. There are no harsh odors, harmful chemicals, or fake fillers, so you can rest assured that the articles closest to your body are truly clean and safe. This also means there are no destructive ingredients washing down the drain either. Plus, their packaging is thoughtfully made with sustainable, easy-to-recycle materials, like cardboard and aluminum. No plastic!

Check out their wild-grown, Certified Organic soap berries for a gentle and safe alternative to conventional detergent. Their Dryer Balls are made from cruelty-free New Zealand wool and provide a non-toxic, sustainable solution to harmful dryer sheets, softening clothing, lowering static, and reducing drying time!

    These soap nuts work so well on odors and stains without leaving any kind of residue or strong smells on the clothes. I use it for everything I was from sheets, to delicates and have had no problems at all. Highly recommend!

    I was slightly skeptical coming in to this, but after fair judgement time, I’m in LOVE! Actually, after the first wash I called my mom AND my best friends, to gush about how they totally surpassed my expectations. From a family of 5, with 3 kids under 6, I highly reccomend!

    Question

    Sabine

    Are the people who harvest the nuts in Nepal paid fair? And how many nuts can be harvested per tree? I mean is this a sustainable alternative? Or are we taking products away from people who need them too? I am really curious to understand this concept.

      Hi Sabine! Great questions all around. Eco-Nuts is a wonderful company with extremely high ethical and environmental standards. The soap nuts are wild-harvested once a year by workers who are paid Fair Trade wages and in environments that Eco-Nuts ensures are safe and equitable. The soap nuts are never treated with pesticides or fertilizers, which is not only great for the Earth and the consumer, but also for those doing the picking!

    Question

    Jennifer Askew

    will these work in cold water? I read some where that they recommend you use hot water when using this type of soap.

      Hi Jennifer! We love washing with cold water since it’s typically better for the planet (uses less energy) and better for your clothing! However, very cold water can inhibit the soap nuts from releasing their cleaning agent, saponin. To combat this, it’s suggested that one makes a “tea” by placing the bag with the nuts into a cup of hot water and letting it sit up to 10 minutes, and then adding both the water and bag directly into the drum of the machine. This does take time, so an alternative is the Eco-Nuts Liquid Detergent, which is formulated to work in a wider range of water conditions.

    5 out of 5 NEVER GOING BACK!!

    Kate (verified owner)

    I feel like that moment in “Tangled” when Rapunzel is screaming that she is never going back to her tower. These eco nuts are amazing! I personally have noticed that they work so much better at removing dirt, stains, and build-up and I was SO skeptical before trying them. I’m so hapy they are natural and compostable and won’t cause build-up in pipes or the laundry machine. I also love that something natural actually WORKS. I want to scream and tell everyone about these!

      Hi Alejandra! Adding 4-5 soap nuts to the provided bag should still do the trick! It’s less a matter of the size of your washing machine and more about how large a load you’re washing. 🙂
