Are you keeping up with Skincare Saturdays at my Skintervention Guide Blog? If not, you’re seriously missin’ out. If I do say so myself.

This week’s post was all about my FAVORITE detergent alternative…soap nuts (I use Naturoli)! And with a label like this…

…we should all be lookin’ for an alternative! Yep, not only should we be thinking about what’s in the products we use directly on our skin in the form of cleansers, toners and lotions, but we should ALSO be thinking about what goes IN to what goes IN to what goes ON our skin. (Uhm…what?)

Just read it. I promise, it all makes perfect sense.

    Although I like the idea of soap nuts, it requires a little too much effort for my taste. They’re not as effective in cold water, you have to keep to track of how many times you use each batch, and you have to remove them soon after the load is washed otherwise they don’t last as long. I’d much rather get some non-toxic liquid detergent like the soap nut extract and forget about it.

    I *just* ordered some of these–almost literally before you posted this. They are arriving on Tuesday, and I can’t wait to try them!

    Hey Liz, just wondering do you reuse the soap nuts after one wash? If so, do you just let them dry in the satchel itself?
