Green Virgin Soapnuts Review and Giveaway!

Ok, this review will be slightly different than previous reviews, as I have a comparison product ( I purchased myself). I will not give the name of the other brand. I will only say they are a well known company. We will call them Bob's.

So ,I washed clothes this weekend using Bob's and Green Virgin soapnuts. First, we will discuss Bob's.
They are light in color. Relatively mild smell. Came with a wash bag. Bob's soapnuts.
I washed 3 loads with Bob's. My clothes smelled ok, they had alot of static, and were not soft like they claimed. I was disappointed.

Next, I washed with Green Virgin.
Notice they are darker in color. They smelled horrible!! Which is apparently a good thing according to my research. They are supposed to smell bad! These also came with a wash bag.
I again did 3 loads. These smelled fresh. Not like regular detergent smelling, just fresh. No static cling and they were soft.
Now, some info. You will use about 5 soapnuts in the wash bag. I have hard water and this is what I used. I also soaked my bag in a little hot water beforehand, as I wash in cold. I did not use anything else. After 3 loads, I think I can get 1 or 2 more loads with the same bag. The soapnuts get all yucky when their usefulness wears off.
A great thing about Green Virgin, is their soapnuts come with a tag explaining the other uses for soapnuts. There is also alot of great recipes online. Green Virgin use Sapindus Mukorossi soapnuts. These are the highest quality. Their prices are very reasonable.

And just for you men, a side note from my husband. I washed his hunting clothes with Green Virgin soapnuts and he was pleasantly surprised. NO SMELL!!! They are clean without having that detergent smell. Perfect for you hunters on a budget. A half pound bag of soapnuts, which will do about 83 loads, costs less than most advertised hunter's detergents. Deer beware!!

And thanks to the generosity of Green Virgin you can win your own 250gram bag (about half a pound).

  1. I love soap nuts! The only downside for is they have no smell. I love fresh, clean laundry that smells A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Soap nuts do the job though!
