Ever since I had my first child, I have been detoxifying my home. I learned rather quickly how important it was to remove toxic chemicals from my home as soon as my first born became mobile.
Babies and toddlers touch everything, put everything in their mouths and if that weren’t reason enough, they tend to have sensitive skin. Both of my children happen to have eczema which made it even harder to find a detergent that did not irritate their poor skin.
One of the problems with finding commercially made products that are organic and green is the price. As you know I am a frugal deal seeker so even if I absolutely love a product, I need to love the price just as much. During my search for the perfect combination of “green” while saving me “green” I came across a product called Eco Nuts® These soap nuts are berries that grow in the Himalayas. They naturally produce a soap that is gentle on both clothes and skin. This makes them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis and are mild enough for baby clothes and cloth diapers.
Eco Nuts are not only great for baby (and you!) they are environmentally friendly. Eco Nuts are gathered from wild trees and are grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. Since insects are not fond of their taste, pesticides are not needed, and the trees thrive in poor uncultivated soil. They are certified USDA Organic by Oregon Tilth and are septic and grey water systems friendly.
Another great aspect of this product is that Eco Nuts can used to wash more than just your laundry. The website has instructions on how to create a liquid detergent from the soap nuts and once you do so you can make several NEW non-toxic, eco friendly products like:
Glass, Tile, and Countertop Cleaner
Plant Pest Repellant
How great is that? Has parenthood sparked the “non-toxic gene” in you? I would love to hear about it!
