Giveaway: Laundry Tree Soapnuts

soap nuts

What in the world are soapnuts? I asked myself this question last June when I stumbled upon Laundry Tree while looking for a homemade laundry detergent recipe. Turns out this 100% all natural Himilayan dried fruit (it’s actually not a nut) is an excellent alternative to traditional laundry detergents. And after six months of using soapnuts, I totally agree– they do work for every day laundry duty. (Note: for heavily soiled clothes, I add in Oxi Clean to give it a boost).

Soapnuts are great for those with sensitive skin — including babies and those that suffer from allergies, eczema, and psoriasis. They’re totally biodegradeable, which means they are better for the environment than regular detergent. Also, they’re antimicrobial, so they’re even good for septic systems. So are you ready to try Laundry Tree soapnuts?

Laundry Tree is giving five Family Sponge readers SoapNut Starter Kits. Each kit contains enough soapnuts and fragrance to wash nearly 40 loads of laundry with SoapNuts.

How soap nuts works

Put 3-5 soapnuts in the drawstring bag that’s included with your Laundry Tree SoapNut Starter kit. Tie it closed and place in your washer with your dirty clothes. Turn on the washer and let run the entire cycle. That’s it! It’s shocking how simple it is, but that’s why I love it. Your clothes will come out clean and chemical-free. If you prefer them to have a scent, you can add a few drops of essential oil to the bag and run it through the wash.


Why we love Laundry Tree…

Laundry Tree began in the laundry aisle of the grocery store while searching for a safe laundry detergent that wasn’t outrageously priced. After trying product after product, they found soapnuts and they fell in love. The business is run by really great people who are committed to fair and ethical business practices.

    Ooo…I’ve always wanted to try these.

  2. Sandy December 12, 2012 at 6:30 am #

    Tried to share and got an error message on Facebook. I will try again. That happened to me yesterday when I tried to share the Land of Nod giveaway on Facebook. I have been sharing the giveaways but not posting that I did as part of my comment.

    I have sensitive skin and a toddler and baby and that is why I would like to win this giveaway.

      Hi Sandy. I’m sorry it isn’t working well. I’ll look into it. Until then, feel free to just share the url link on Facebook manually. Sorry for the hassle— and good luck winning! I love these soapnuts. 🙂

      • Sandy December 12, 2012 at 6:52 am #

        No hassle. If you check my Facebook wall, you will see multiple share posts for the other giveaways because I wanted to be sure I got it right. I was able to share the link using an option to share from my phone instead of the direct link in the bonus entry sentence. Thanks!

    I’d love to try this! I’m a huge Tide person, as I have never found anything that works better? I have tried other natural laundry soaps and they just didn’t get our clothes clean enough. It’d be great to find a natural product that works!

  18. Lisa Volpe December 13, 2012 at 6:55 am #

    Shared on my “wall”. I wonder how many of my friends have tried this? Guess we’ll see? 🙂

    Natural products appeal to me. My son sometimes has ezcema outbreaks. Sounds very interesting.

  23. kaceyjt December 13, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

    Oh my goodness, I heard something about a nut that could be used instead of laundry detergent, but I never looked into it! I’ve been trying to decrease the amount of chemicals that my family comes into contact with and Soapnuts would be a great way to do that!

  24. Karen December 13, 2012 at 6:10 pm #

    Thank you so much for the Laundry Tree coupon code! I was about to place an order and happened to jump over to their facebook page where I saw your site mentioned. So here I am…and you just saved me $10. You made my night!

    Always looking for ways to be a more green household and leave a smaller footprint. Love the idea of this product and would like to try it!

  26. christina obrien December 14, 2012 at 7:31 am #

    I am interested in the wool dryer balls, those will keep the static away AND my children won’t breakout in eczema. It is difficult to find things to use when my family and I have super sensitive skin.

  27. Rachelle Gilmore December 14, 2012 at 8:07 am #

    I’ve never heard of such a thing! How cool!

  28. lindy bee giordano December 14, 2012 at 10:50 am #

    Im very interested!! Sounds so cool and cuts down on wastefullness. I have asthma and skin problems and this would be a wonderful win for me!!! Bless you all!
