Weekend Giveaway: LaundryTree

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I’m super excited about today’s giveaway. Our sponsor LaundryTree sells something I have grown to love and use myself several times a week in my own laundry, Soap Nuts! They are a totally non-toxic, natural way to do laundry (and great for cloth diapers). LaundryTree also sells a variety of essential oils and accessories.

From the Sponsor


We were looking for a laundry product that fit our “laundry” list of requirements:

  • Something without dyes or perfumes, to accommodate a munchkin with eczema and super-sensitive skin
  • Something without too many suds, to accommodate our high-efficiency washer
  • Something with no harsh chemicals, to accommodate a persnickety septic system and our respect for the environment
  • Something without an over-inflated price tag, to accommodate… well, our under-inflated wallets.

LaundryTree’s soapnuts are:

  • 100%, totally natural and organically grown.
  • Non-allergenic.
  • Antimicrobial.
  • Harvested in a sustainable way.
  • Better for the environment than traditional detergents.

We’re head over heels for soapnuts, and we’re sure you will be, too.

We use soapnuts because they work, they’re better for us AND the environment, and they’re the coolest cleaning agent on the planet — bar none.

  12. As a man, what does it say about you when you get excited about a basket of organic cleaning supplies…5 words….DO-MES-TI-CA-TED!!! I have a 4 year old girl, and a baby boy on the way (due date tomorrow!). There will be a ton of messes right around the corner, and these products would be put to great use here at the Beckman household. Excuse me while I go clean the toilet.
