Yoreganics | Organic Soap Nuts & More Giveaway!

All I can say is wow! I have never tried soap nuts before, but I had heard about them and wondered if they really worked, so when I was offered to try some organic (not just natural, but USDA organic!) soap nuts from Yoreganics, of course I said yes!

They are the most interesting little things. They look like and feel like tree nuts, but technically they are a fruit, so no worrying about tree nut allergies. I decided to really give them a good test and used them on some white linen pants that had just gotten stained with strawberries & blood, courtesy of my 3 year old!

So, I headed for the washing machine and put the stain remover on my pants, added the soap nuts to the water and the "brightens & whitens". When I threw them in the wash with my linen pants, I wasn't sure what to expect. Where are the suds? No way this can work, there are no bubbles, I thought and there weren't. It was so different from what I am used to.

I was happy the directions said I didn't have to remove them from the rinse cycle, because who wants to remember to do that? Then, when I removed them from the wash, I checked the pants and BOTH stains were completely gone! I was so shocked, I spent the rest of the day telling anyone that would listen that they actually worked (sorry to my entire family and friends for going on and on about that LOL).

Want to hear even better news? You don't need dryer sheets when you use them either! Since they stay in the rinse cycle, they leave a little residue which softens them up in the dryer - awesome! I have been using natural dryer sheets, but decreasing any extra step while doing laundry is fine by me! And... once they have done all of the jobs they can do, throw them in your compost bin! Does it get any better? I'm in love!

I also got to try Yoreganics organic simplemint lip balm - love it as well! It provides much more moisture then the other organic lip balms I have (and believe me, I have a lot). I also love the minty smell and the little tingle of mint on my lips. No chemistry degree required to read the ingredients either!

I will definitely be buying these soap nuts and I would also like to try the hand wash and bar soap. A gift set of this would also be a great organic gift for a new Mommy!
