NaturOli Soap Nuts Review

As a green Mom, I’m always on the lookout for more natural ways to live. But one area of my life that’s not totally green is the laundry room. Don’t judge! With a family of five (and I’m the only girl), I feel the need to use a heavy-duty detergent. BOYS STINK, for real! 😉 That’s why I was excited to be introduced to NaturOli Soap Nuts. So I put these suckers to the test. Did they withstand the task of cleaning and deodorizing stinky boy clothes? Just wait and see!

About NaturOli

They also offer plenty of great information on how to use soap nuts. NaturOli Nuts soap nuts are effective for a variety of uses from personal care to laundry and chemical-free cleaning.

Here’s what you’ll find on the NaturOli Website:

My Experience with NaturOli 

I live in a house with dudes. From my husband and teenage step-son to my 7 and 10 year old boys, our home is full of testosterone and smelly socks. PEE-EEOW! 😉 So, I was excited to see if NaturOli soap nuts and natural laundry products were up to the challenge of cleaning our stinky clothes and towels. Let’s see how they did! 

NaturOli Soap Nuts

056

I’ve never used soap nuts before, so this was a new concept to me. Naturoli Soap Nuts are dried fruits from the sapindus mukorossi tree. These little nuts contain saponin, Mother Nature’s alternative to toxic chemical detergents & cleaners. Saponin is a safe, all-natural, hypoallergenic, biodegradable & fragrance-free surfactant (soap).

They did a fabulous job cleaning our clothes and they’re super easy to use! 

How To Use Soap Nuts

Soap Nuts How To

Simply toss 5 or 6 of them inside the cloth bag that comes with NaturOli soap nuts, pull the strings to seal and toss them in the washer. The soap nuts will last through about 6-7 washes before they need to be refreshed. I was surprised at how well they cleaned our clothes and towels. Go soap nuts! 🙂

NaturOli Jumbo Dryer Balls

008

The NaturOli Jumbo Dryer balls keep your clothes static free. I’m a bit scent obsessed, so I used these fancy dryer balls to freshen our laundry. I added 3-4 drops of Young Living’s Joy essential oil to each ball and threw them in the dryer with our clothes. The scent lasts through 4-5 cycles, then simply refresh with a new essential oil (I like Citrus Fresh and Lavender too). 😀

NaturOli Pre-Treat Laundry Stick

079

The NaturOli Pre-Treat Laundry Stick is a MUST-HAVE in my house full of messy boys. My youngest loves spilling stuff on his clothes. This 100% natural stain remover worked wonders for coffee and food stains. Nothing synthetic in this handy stain remover. I LOVE THAT! 

Get Your Own NaturOli

The pure and natural products from NaturOli are pretty amazing. I’m a fan for life! A friend of mine also recommended their amazing liquid soap nuts shampoo. I can’t wait to try their hair products next. How amazing! I’m thrilled to announce that the lovely folks at NaturOli have graciously agreed to allow me to give away the laundry products from this review. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to green your laundry room!

  2. I would love to try the Rose Hydrosol / Flower Water. I tried to make some myself and failed horribly. The scent is “off” and it dyes everything red. Not good. I would love to try it to see how it works when someone who knows what they are doing does it 🙂
