I photographed these products with permission at the ABC Expo. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and I paid my own way to the show. All opinions are my own. The ABC Show excitement isn’t limited to cloth diapers. I met lots of fantastic business owners that create and sell amazing cloth diaper accessories (and more.)

Eco Nuts Liquid Concentrate Detergent Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 8/25) U.S./Canada

Eco Nuts Concentrate

I’ve used soap nuts before, but this is my first time trying Eco Nuts, as well as my first time trying a liquid soap nut detergent!

If you’re not familiar with soap nuts, you might be asking yourself what is a soap nut? Don’t let the name fool you, there’s no soap in soap nuts, and they are totally cloth diaper safe. Soap nuts (also called soap berries) are not nuts at all, but are dried fruit shells (related to the lychee) that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree. They contain saponin, a natural surfactant that removes dirt from your laundry, are gentle on laundry and skin, and are septic and grey water safe.

Eco Nuts Concentrate

So, why Eco Nuts? Eco Nuts are harvested in the Himalayas, and because they aren’t tasty to critters, no pesticides or fertilizers are used. They are dried indoors in a controlled environment (rather than outdoors on a rooftop like some are) so you won’t be getting any extra little surprises from rats, birds and other creatures when you buy Eco Nuts! They’re certified USDA organic by EcoCert, are hand-packaged in the USA, and their proprietary sorting process ensures they are free from contaminants.

Eco Nuts Concentrate

To use soap nuts , you place 4 or 5 in a muslin bag and toss them in your machine. You can use them up to 10 times, when they disintegrate and get mushy. The liquid concentrate is even easier! Eco Nuts Soapberry Based Liquid Detergent contains Soapberry extract, vegetable glycerin and Potassium Sorbate (a food grade preservative.) It does not (nor do Eco Nuts) contain dyes, fragrances, fillers, enzymes or optical brighteners, and it is 100% SLS and phosphate-free. This means Eco Nuts are safe for cloth diapers!

The concentrate is packaged in a lightweight, recyclable aluminum bottle. I love the look of the bottle and label, and if I had a decorative shelf in my laundry room, I’d leave the bottle out! The concentrate smells like soap nuts, which is a slightly pungent, maybe vinegar-y smell.

Eco Nuts Concentrate

The 4 ounce bottle does 24 loads in a regular machine, or 48 in an HE machine. You need just 1 capful (1 tsp) for a load, or half that for an HE machine. I was trying to take a picture while I poured, and I poured a little much. The bottle does say that heavily soiled loads might need a bit more, so I went ahead and used a full capful for a load of cloth diapers (if they aren’t heavily soiled, I don’t know what is!)

Eco Nuts Concentrate

Yep, a little goes a long way! You won’t see suds or foam like detergent. Before I did my diapers, I did soak them, then do a few extra rinses, so I could be sure there was no detergent residue.

Eco Nuts Concentrate

I washed them using my regular wash routine, and when they were finished, they smelled like…nothing. Exactly what you want. If you’re looking for a cloth diaper safe, natural detergent, I highly recommend checking Eco Nuts out! The liquid detergent comes in a 4 ounce 24/48 bottle for $9.49, as well as a 10 oz 60/120 bottle for $18.99. Get a 10-load soap nuts trial pack for just $4.00, 100 loads for $12.00, or 360 loads for $34.95. They have even more goodies, not just soap nuts, so check it out!
