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!

    If it's too good to be true, it is.

    First off these hardly bubble up even in boiling water. Second the water they made after boiling was sticky. Third they stink when boiled. Overall I gave them a try because I really want to be zero waste, but there is nothing that makes these good for cleaning. If you are considering these, save yourself the money and just wash your laundry with water pretreating messes with bar soap, otherwise stick to your regular eco detergent.
