I was given the opportunity to review a Natural Stain Remover stick and some soap nuts – which I’ve always been curious about.
What are Soap Nuts?
Soap Nuts are actually berries that can be used as natural laundry soap. They are chemical-free and eco-friendly.
How do they Work?
Soap Nuts – The saponin in the shell of the berries works well to clean regular laundry. These berries can be used in the little cloth bag that comes with the package of soap nuts. The bag has a velcro closure so that the berries are contained within it when it is placed in the washing machine. I used about 4 berries for my small machine and liked the results. I love how eco-friendly these soap nuts are. The 250g bag is only $12.
The Natural Stain Remover stick I received can be used directly on clothing prior to washing. I don’t tend to have a lot of stains that need to be removed, but I tried this on a coffee stain and it got it out easily. I like the smell of the stain remover stick and the minimal packaging. I like that it is made in small batches in Canada.
Buncha Farmers All Natural Stain Remover works on grass, red wine, ketchup, blood, grease, underarm stains, and so much more. Even the most stubborn stains are washed away.
The Natural Stain Remover stick is inexpensive – only $3.50. I imagine that this will last me several years – it’s a fair size and you don’t need to use very much on a stain.
The size of soap nuts I received should last me up to 100 loads of laundry. I have a Portable Washing Machine, so I’m sure I’ll get extra use out of this bag.

I'm very interested in trying the natural stain stick. I'd love it if it worked on grease! I'm still a little wary about soap nuts, though. I have a friend who borrowed a bunch of my cloth diapers. She uses soap nuts to wash clothes (and diapers). When she returned the dipes to me they were horribly dirty. Gross! I don't know if it was the soap nuts, her washer, or just differences in hygiene.
I guess I'll just have to try them sometime.
I've read about soap nuts before and have always wanted to try them – they sound like such a neat idea! Love anything made in Canada too

my family would always like to go on ski holidays because it is very enjoyable.
