I started using Eco Nuts on my diapers, but quickly made the switch to using them on all of our laundry. Our clothes are clean, stain free, soft, fluffy and smell great! I love that my laundry room is cleaner because I don't have multiple bottles of detergent taking up space. My absolute favorite thing about Eco Nuts is I'm saving water! One downside to using cloth diapers is the amount of water it takes to wash a load of diapers. Pre-rinse. Hot Wash. Rinse. Extra Rinse. Gallons of water gone. My water bill reflects it too. Since Eco Nuts isn't a typical detergent it's eliminating the need for the second rinse cycle! There is no left over soap in my diapers even without the second rinse. (You may need the extra rinse cycle depending on your water type). I recently read on another blog that one of the downsides to using soap nuts is you have to search for the bag of nuts before putting the clothes in the dryer. I have dried my soap nuts countless times and it's fine! There is no reason it should cause issues. Of course, if I see the bag I grab it, but if not, I don't worry about it. And because Eco Nuts comes with two bags, I don't have to worry about finding the first one to start another load.
You may think that Eco Nuts is not a cost effective option for you. I love this chart breaking down the cost and additives of many mainstream detergents. It was a real eye opener for me!

All opinions in this post are my own. Eco Nuts did provide me with a box of soap nuts for reviewing purposes. I fully intend to purchase more EcoNuts for all of my laundry needs!
