Soap Nuts Liquid Detergent – Extreme 18X Giveaway!

Just compare Extreme18X to other detergents! What a significant waste difference!

Just compare Extreme18X to other detergents! What a significant waste difference!

I am a huge fan of the simplicity and safety without excess waste of using soap nuts for all my laundry needs (including those cloth diapers)! Soap nuts grow on trees! We have discussed all the wonderful benefits of using soap nuts here and from our previous giveaway here, and now we want to introduce you to the liquid version! As I shared before, Soap Nuts are the only laundry soap that grows on trees, thus giving us the most sustainable and natural option out there. It is 100% safe and natural for the most sensitive skin. Soap nuts are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry tree. They contain saponin, a natural cleaner. They are simply harvested, de-seeded, and then dried in the sun. Great for hard water and high efficiency machines. It is biodegradable, hypo-allergenic, brightens colors, low sudsing, and contains a natural fabric softener.

Now NaturOli offers another product that makes it even more simple and convenient to use soap nuts – enter Extreme 18X liquid detergent! You only have to use 1/2 teaspoon per load of laundry as it is a highly concentrated 18x potency. I have been experimenting with the Extreme 18X liquid detergent and I really love it. It cleans well, smells fresh and produces soft clothing. My tip: make sure to use a measuring spoon to measure it out per load. It is so easy to use too much when you simply squirt it into your washer. Extreme 18X works in your dishwasher as well! Simply squirt about 1/2 teaspoon in your dishwasher dispenser and away you go! I have also diluted it with water in a spray bottle for a gentle and effective household all-purpose cleaner with great success. This is a multi-purpose all natural alternative that avoids excess waste. See that picture on the left? Compare that weight and packaging and see how much better soap nuts are for our environment.

Now, you can win a sample of the Extreme18X liquid detergent! This sample offers you 1 ounce of

This is the sample you could win!

liquid detergent that will yield 12 high efficiency (HE) loads or 6 standard loads – or more! If you have been skeptical of the wonders of soap nuts, this is your opportunity to sample the most concentrated, effective, green laundry detergent on the market.

    Thanks so much for another give away, I would LOVE to try soap nuts, I have read a bunch about them on your blog (thanks for all your research and time) and I have linked your blog to both of mine! Thanks for sharing all your knowledge- keep it coming!

  2. Angel August 1, 2009 at 9:07 am #

    I’d love to try this! I make my own laundry det. now, but I am getting frustrated that it isn’t cleaning my husband’s VERY dirty work clothes very well! My whites are also getting pretty dingy (especially his white t-shirts for work). Thanks so much for the giveaway! If I don’t win, hopefully I’ll be able to afford trying them out myself.

  3. Tracy August 1, 2009 at 9:01 am #

    I’m really interested in trying soap nuts, but haven’t had the chance yet.

  9. Sara August 1, 2009 at 8:46 am #

    I’ve seen soap nuts at the Boise Co-Op and have been interested in trying them, but haven’t done it yet. I’d love to try this new product, because it sounds even easier to use. I really would love to win one of these free samples! I’m all about finding simple, natural products and solutions for green living. Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. Cara August 1, 2009 at 8:45 am #

    Yes!!!! I want to be entered. I am planning to cloth diaper (and have your site bookmarked for info!) and will be trying soap nuts asap. Just haven’t had a chance to order them yet. :)

  11. gojigirl August 1, 2009 at 8:45 am #

    I haven’t tried soapnuts yet, but am very curious. :) I have very sensitive skin, and use cloth diapers for my toddler (and this fall when my newborn is here!) I have awful municipal water and this combined with my previous allergic reactions to laundry products has made me scared to try new products. But the cost savings (and enviro aspects) of soap nuts continue to tempt me. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Jennifer August 1, 2009 at 8:44 am #

    I have not tried soap nuts yet but I am so very interested in doing so. So I would love to win some of this liquid detergent and maybe start a new trend in laundry amongst my friends!

  13. Heather Overby August 1, 2009 at 8:44 am #

    I was online yesterday looking at soapnuts and I am very interested in trying them out. Please enter me into the drawing!
    Thank you

  14. Jennifer August 1, 2009 at 8:44 am #

    I haven’t tried soap nuts yet, but would love to! I make my own detergent, but am always looking for something better! Thanks for offering the giveaway!

  15. Michaela August 1, 2009 at 8:43 am #

    What a wonderful gift! I just started becoming interested in soap nuts a couple weeks ago & have been starting to ask questions as of late. I’m anxious to try it! I’ve been using the A&H “green” detergent, but as a PP mentioned about her brand, my store has discontinued this. When it was marked down, I bought the last 7. But it’s not going to last long, especially with 3 boys & 2 daycare girls, plus Hubba & I.

    I’m off to post about this on my blog. Thank you for this!

  16. Christine Anderson August 1, 2009 at 8:41 am #

    I love them but I have been meaning to make the liquid stuff, i just have not gotten around to doing it yet. I would love to try the soap nuts in the dishwasher!

  17. CcsMomma August 1, 2009 at 8:37 am #

    I have been hearing about soapnuts for about a year now and keep thinking I need to try them. This looks like the perfect opportunity!!!

  18. Tanya August 1, 2009 at 8:36 am #

    I would love to try soap nuts. I have been wanting a safe and natural alternative to Tide that can clean my three boy’s dirty clothes! Thank you.

  19. Traci Katz August 1, 2009 at 8:36 am #

    I have been experimenting with natural laundry soaps and I would love to try this! I’m not sure I am satisfied with what I’ve discovered so far, so I am open to options!

  20. Stephanie August 1, 2009 at 8:35 am #

    I’ve read a little bit about soap nuts, but haven’t tried them yet. Finding safe, cost-effective laundry detergent is so difficult that I’ve considered making my own, I’m still not completely excited about all the ingredients that I would need to use, nor the inconvenience involved. I would love to try soap nuts, so by all means, enter me in the contest!

    BTW, I’m a newcomer to your blog, & I’ve found it very informative & inspiring. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge!

  21. Lin August 1, 2009 at 8:35 am #

    I haven’t tried Soap nuts before, but would love to be entered in the giveaway. I’m glad to have found a natural detergent and am looking forward to switch to Soap nuts. Thank you very much!

  22. Lindsey August 1, 2009 at 8:34 am #

    I’m very interested to try Soap Nuts. Your previous post really ignited my interest and I’ve heard about them several times since. It’s awesome that they just grow on trees! Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Rebecca August 1, 2009 at 8:34 am #

    I’d love to try them! I’ve been skeptical and hesitant to buy so trying them this way would be perfect! Thanks a bunch.

  24. Angie August 1, 2009 at 8:34 am #

    Would love to try it! Always up for something new!

  25. Cheryl August 1, 2009 at 8:33 am #

    Thanks for the info on soap nuts, I had never heard of them before reading about them on your blog. Thank you for continuing to share info and ideas even though your demands at home have increased. I love your blog and frequent it often.
    Please enter me in the give-away, it would be great to try some of this product!

  26. Satsuki August 1, 2009 at 8:33 am #

    I haven’t tried these but I’ve been wanting to for a long time now.

  27. Soccy August 1, 2009 at 8:30 am #

    I’ve tried the Soap Nuts on your recommendation and love it. I’m so excited about this giveaway because I wanted to try the liquid form. Is it true you can use it in your dishwasher?

    Please enter me in your contest. I also posted a link to your blog on my Facebook page.

  28. Annalea August 1, 2009 at 8:29 am #

    I haven’t yet tried soap nuts, mostly because I wasn’t comfortable with the imprecise idea of tossing the dried fruit in with the laundry. With a liquid, that concern is gone, and I’m really curious to see how it would work.

    Now, off to post about the giveaway on my blog . . .

    Thanks so much!

  29. Jen August 1, 2009 at 8:29 am #

    I haven’t tried soap nuts yet, but I’ve seen them all over the internet. I would love to try it! Thanks for the opportunity.

  30. Lisa August 1, 2009 at 8:28 am #

    I have not tried, but would love to. It sounds like a great product that would be good for my family. Thanks!

  31. Whitney August 1, 2009 at 8:21 am #

    I have not used soap nuts but have been interested since your last soap nuts giveaway. I’ve been having issues with my little girl having a red bottom after wearing her cloth diapers. I’ve switched laundry detergent, tried drying the cd’s in the sun, and washed the inserts with several drops of grapefruit seed extract. Nothing has worked yet. Maybe soap nuts will make the difference.

  32. Heather August 1, 2009 at 8:11 am #

    I’m interested in trying it for our laundry…Does it work with hard water in dishwasher? Just wondered how it compared to your homemade recipe for dishwasher. Please do enter me in the giveaway :)


  33. Leslie August 1, 2009 at 8:03 am #

    Havn’t had the oppurtunity to use the soap nuts yet, but would love to try them!

  34. Ellen R. August 1, 2009 at 8:02 am #

    I haven’t tried soap nuts yet, but have been SO intruiged by them since you blogged about them. I really want to try them but haven’t found a way to squeeze them into our (already very tight) budget. I really hope I win so I can try this! What a great give away – thank you!!

  35. Tucker August 1, 2009 at 8:01 am #

    Sounds really cool – I’d like to try it out. If it works, I’ll totally buy some!

  36. Amy August 1, 2009 at 8:00 am #

    I haven’t yet tried soap nuts, in fact, I’d never heard of them until I stumbled onto your blog. I would be extremely interested to see how they stack up against traditional cleansers as I’ve been trying to ‘green’ our laundry lately! Plus, they look like a bargain!

  37. Jen August 1, 2009 at 7:59 am #

    I’ve never heard of soap nuts before. I’d love to try it. Thanks.

  38. Jamie August 1, 2009 at 7:54 am #

    I haven’t tried soap nuts yet either, but I recently purchased Country Save detergent for the cloth diapers we are going to use for our first baby (due to arrive in the next few weeks). I like the Country Save, but I miss using liquid detergent and have been interested in using soap nuts since reading about them.

  39. Ashanna August 1, 2009 at 7:38 am #

    I’m always looking for ways to safely and naturally simplify life, and laundry is no exception! I haven’t tried soap nuts yet, but I’ve been reading a lot about them on your blog and would love to see what they’re all about! Thanks for the offer!

  40. Felicia August 1, 2009 at 7:35 am #

    I would like to be entered in the give away please. I have never used soapnuts before.

    After years of not listening to my instinct, I am finally doing what it takes to make my entire household “green” and healthy. Your website has helped me a lot. Thanks!

  41. Amy S. August 1, 2009 at 7:30 am #

    I have just recently found your blog and love it! I read about soap nuts here, and would love to try the sample of the liquid version. I have 4 young children and am always trying to find an efficiant, natural way to do my many loads of laundry without spending a fortune! Some of the cleaners I have tried are so expensive and don’t do a great job (plus I still need to use a natural softener!). Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!

  42. Elisa August 1, 2009 at 7:25 am #

    I would love to give soap nuts a try. Having children with skin allergies, I am always searching for a better laundry soap. Thanks!

  43. Carrie August 1, 2009 at 7:25 am #

    I have tried the soap nuts and it did leave the clothes smelling fresh. I would love to try the liquid!!

  44. Rachel August 1, 2009 at 7:23 am #

    I would love to try soap nuts out! I’ve looking for an alternative to regular detergent & this would be a perfect chance to try something new!

  45. Melissa August 1, 2009 at 7:22 am #

    Read about soap nuts here, ordered them, loved them, got five more people to use them, giving a talk this Saturday at our church about cleaning for pennies a day and soap nuts will be featured =) Love you blog thanks for all your research. Melissa

  46. Lisa D. August 1, 2009 at 7:22 am #

    I haven’t tried soap nuts yet but, I would sure like too. I currently make my own soap and wouldn’t mind giving it a try.

  47. laura August 1, 2009 at 7:19 am #

    i have never heard of a soapnuts liquid! i would love to give it a try (especially on those stinky diapers!). what a fun giveaway!

  48. SarahMichelle August 1, 2009 at 7:17 am #

    I have been wanting to try soap nuts for a while, especially after you blogged about your experience. I actually went to the Naturoli website planning to place an order but wasn’t able to determine if they shipped to Canada. I meant to email them and ask what their policy regarding international shipping was but then I got kind of distracted having a baby :) I really should look into it again though because I am doing A LOT of laundry these days with a 5 week old and 22 month old… hmm, maybe it’s time to give potty training a try! Anyway, I would love to win a sample of the 18X because that is the product I was most interested in ordering.

  49. Susan August 1, 2009 at 6:31 am #

    I’m interested in trying soap nuts. It sounds like a good way to help make natural detergent for my laundry – which includes laundry for my 2-year-old and soon-coming newborn! Thanks for the offer!

    • Larissa Holland August 1, 2009 at 12:10 pm #

      I just recently learned of soap nuts and am very interested in trying it. My husband and I have been discussing ways to make our own laundry and dishwasher detergent. I also cloth diaper, so I would be interested in trying it with the diapers as well.

  50. Jen Hill August 1, 2009 at 6:29 am #

    I haven’t tried soap nuts yet up but would love to. I have been buying Green Mountain for our laundry and the store where I get it is no longer ordering it. They’ve marked it down (good for now but when it’s all gone what do I do?!)

    So yes – I’m ready to look into something else that is frugal, natural and can be used for both our diapers and our other laundry!
