I recently had discussion regarding the impressive efficacy of a laundry detergent made from soap nuts by Green Virgin Products. The folks behind this revolutionary detergent have gone to great lengths to produce a natural product that offers a long shelf life without incorporating any harmful preservatives.
This should be of interest to everyone, considering that commercial laundry detergent contains some rather toxic chemicals, many of which do not even require disclosure on labels, yet they're present and can pose a threat to our family's health as well as the environment.
Some harmful chemicals found in common detergents:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
NPE (nonylphenol ethoxylate)
Part of the discussion I had was in regards to why inferior and harmful ingredients flood everyday products. The answer is simple, it's cheaper. So big business ensures a hefty profit. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, that is we as consumers can seek out safe options.

only 18.95 for a full 120 Loads
As I mentioned at the opening of this post, Green Virgin Products; a family-run business, has taken great strides to produce a safe, effective and certified organic product. By utilizing the soap nut; aka soapberry, found in nature, which contains a natural surfactant. They have also successfully met the challenge of finding a safe, non-toxic preservative which was needed due to soap nut's short shelf life. They even went the extra mile in the production and manufacturing process to guarantee a better quality and more effective product.
How does Soap Nuts Laundry Detergent compare to the leading commercial brands in price and efficacy?
I really put this to the test. I wasn't kidding around with the large load of dirty and smelly laundry. I'm very impressed with the results and I feel I can safely say that this all-natural, organic detergent outperformed a top commercial brand. The price is very competitive, since I have an HE washer the small bottle of highly concentrated detergent is more cost-effective than the leading commercial brands, which is surprising to me since those commercial brands don't offer quality of product. Even if you don't have an HE washer, it's still more affordable. An 8 ounce bottle contains 120 average wash loads for an HE washer, so that would be around 80 wash loads for standard washing machines. You would have to have a pretty good coupon for the average commercial brand of laundry detergent to match the value of Soap Nuts Liquid detergent.
Soap Nuts Laundry Detergent outperforms Seventh Generation
The more important question: how does it compare to "natural" detergents such as Seventh Generation or Method? Better on both counts. Well, if it's more economical than those commercial brands then we know it's a far better value than Seventh Generation and Method. Soap Nuts Detergent is one of the few products I've encountered that offered a high level of quality at an very affordable price. There simply isn't any need to pay more. This means there is no need for anyone to risk our family's safety for a sake of a bargain.
