Eco-Nuts, Soap Nuts for Everyday DIY Natural Cleaning!

back nfr6k
This blog post is a review & DIY recipes all in one to show you how & what ways I have loved using Eco-Nuts in my everyday Do it yourself cleaning ideas. But you can find a lot of recipes right on their website here.

Soap nuts for more than just Laundry.

We have used soap nuts before but it has been awhile, the website I was buying the natural dried Berries went out of business or something & I had been meaning to find another good source for Organicsoap nuts. Along the way I did try the dried soap nuts powder & bits & liquids & most bothered my daughter giving her a rash or hives, some were ok & did not bother her but cost far too much. So I really wanted to get back to another quality company to buy the all natural nuts/berries & thank goodness Eco-Nuts Soap Nuts came along.

Laundry: To me the easiest way to do laundry is to add 4 or 5 berries to a little cloth bag & use in about 10 loads of laundry, easy & effective. So for me the best & easiest way is not to mix the powder or the liquid made from the soap nuts with my DIY laundry soaps. Simply throw the bag in the washer & add less of my DIY laundry soap or just some baking soda & borax, or just some vinegar. Pretty much whatever I decide that load needs, & of course I always add my Bleach Alternative to the bleach dispenser & softener dispenser as well. (find my DIY Laundry ideas here, & find my DIY bleach alternative recipe here). I have never had an issue with dingy or smelly clothes, soap nuts keep my clothes clean & smelling fresh & is even great at removing dirt & grime. I have used the DIY Soap nuts liquid in my laundry but far prefer the ease & effectiveness of just adding berries to the cloth bag & doing it that way.

I love these Eco-Nuts Soap nuts & they are so great for our sensitive skin, they clean well, are very versatile & fit into our natural DIY life perfectly.

What are Soap nuts?

Eco Nuts® Soap Nuts are a berry shell that naturally contains soap. They grow on the Sapindus mukorossi (Soap Berry) tree in the Himalayas.

Making Liquid: Turning your soap nuts into liquid is really not that hard at all, & the resulting liquid can be used in so many DIY recipes around your home.soap nuts Collage

I followed the easy directions right on the Eco-Nuts Page How to make Soap nuts Liquid. I tried both the stove top & the overnight soaking method to make soap nuts liquid & I far prefer the stove top method.

What I did was got a stainless medium size mixing bowl I like to use when doing things like this on the stove. I used my filtered RO water rather than use tap water, I like my cleaners to have more pure water in them to last longer.

I got 4 cups of RO water just to simmering & added 1 cup of soap nuts berries (If I remember correctly it was about 20 berries). I let the soap nuts just simmer for 10 minutes or so & I stirred them every now & then with my bamboo spoon. Then I removed the bowl from the heat & sat a plate over it to allow my soap nuts to steep in the liquid until cooled (I left them over night).

In the morning I used my handheld dough blender to crush & & mix in the soap nuts (because I do not have a handheld potato masher). Then I strained the liquid through a mesh strainer (or use a nut milk bag, they work great). Now I have my liquid in jars so I can use it for recipes.

As a side note Eco-Nuts states ” It’s best to make your soap nuts liquid in smaller batches, as it’s free of preservatives. To store home-made detergent longer than a week or two, keep it in the fridge, or freeze it into ice cubes. A few cubes can be used for each load of laundry.”

What I do is add about an ounce of colloidal silver to my jars of soap nuts liquid so I do not have to worry about it spoiling to soon & that seems to work great.

Boil again for shampoo: But do not throw out those boiled soap nuts yet! Yes they can safely at this point be thrown out or added to your compost bin, but I like to add 3 cups of water, simmer, cool, mash & strain again & repeat one more time (yes I boil 2 extra times) I use this diluted version of Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid as shampoo/nopoo for my hair (directions below).

DIY cleaning recipes using the liquid:

Soft scrub for sinks, counter, toilet, tub, faucets, shower etc: 1 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of the Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid, 1 tbsp peroxide & 1 tbsp water. Optional add: 10 to 15 drops each of lemon & eucalyptus essential oils.

Store in an old soft scrub container or a container with a sealing lid, use just like soft scrub. Great for tubs, sinks, faucets, toilets, tile, shower doors anywhere there are water spots & lime deposits.
Options: to make a thicker paste gradually add salt & corn starch

Grime fighting Shower/Tub cleaner: 1 & 1/2 cups of white vinegar (heated) add to spray bottle then add 1 & 1/4 cups of Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid, shake to mix. Optional to add, essential oils like lemon & eucalyptus.  Use to clean your sinks, tubs and showers.

Toilet bowl cleaner: 2 tbsp baking soda, 2 tbsp borax, 1 tbsp of Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid, 1 to 2 cups white vinegar.

Add the baking soda & borax to the toilet bowl water, stir around with toilet brush, add the liquid soap & swish it around, then add the vinegar & let it fiz, scrub with brush then flush, if very dirty let it sit while you clean the rest of the bathroom or overnight before scrubbing & flushing.
Options: Add warmed water to the toilet bowl first, or heat the vinegar before adding.

Oven cleaner: Make a paste of baking soda, Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid & water, spray the inside of the oven with vinegar & water then sprinkle/rub on the paste. For general cleaning I like to let it sit about 1/2 hours, for badly burned on stains overnight. I have also found it effective to spray well before adding paste then preheating to 250 & turn off right away, spraying again if needed & letting sit till cooled. After it has sat long enough use a scrub brush, wash cloth or sponge to clean it out, use fresh water if needed, after done use a spray bottle with vinegar & water to clean it well.Eco-Nuts Soap nuts

Dish Soap: Of course the Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid can be used as is for dishes & we have used it that way a lot, we hand was our dishes because our dishwasher has not worked for a while now (very old) so I do not know how well the liquid works in a dishwasher. But we also like to add it to homemade dish soap recipes.

DIY dish soap: 1 quart of pure water (filtered), 1 cup of washing soda, (optional: 1 cup of borax), 1 cup of Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid. heat on med low & stir until the mixture of washing soda & borax have dissolved, let cool, strain into a squeeze bottle & add 2 tbsp of lemon juice concentrate. Use as you normally would, it will be low sudsing.

Multi-Purpose cleaner: In large spray bottle add 1/2 cup white vinegar, 2 to 4 tbsp Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid shake & use for everything from counters, walls, mirrors, glass, wood, bathroom, kitchen, nursery & more.

Natural liquid soap: If you read my DIY cleaning blog series on cleaning the whole house or any of my other DIY cleaning recipes & the recipe calls for natural liquid soap, you can easily the Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid in any of those recipes.

Washing hair: I found using the diluted Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid that I made from my 2nd & third boiling as stated in the directions above is great for using in my hair about once a week, so it works great as part of my NoPoo routine.  The basic recipe is to mix 1/4 cup of the diluted Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid in 2 cups of warm water & put in an old shampoo container & use amount desired. (or you can use the already diluted Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid straight).

Another great hair recipe: I also like to mix up as I go instead of make my hair washing recipes ahead of time, so I keep an orange picture in the bathroom & the items we use for washing our hair & we add warm water & mix with our hand & pour over dry hair. I simply add about 3 cups hot water, 3 tbsp of the diluted Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid, 1 to 2 tsp of baking soda, and 1 tsp of borax. Mix with hand until dissolved & pour over & work into hair.

For washing pets: OK for our little dog this has been great, I use the same diluted Eco-Nuts Soap nuts liquid in a spray bottle & spray the wet dog & work in (again low sudsing). I have also used the same recipe I use on my hair with baking soda & borax on the dogs hair with great results.

Review/Giveaway($149 value): Red Apple Reading Program – Online – Fun & Learning – Homeschool idea

Red Apple Reading makes learning to read fun for children ages 4 to 9.

Teaching fundamental reading skills online with animated videos & games! The HD graphics & red apple reading logolovable characters captivate young school-aged children, turning them into active, confident readers.

Great for using in homeschooling or for just an extra fun way to learn at home after school.

Because I homeschool my children I am always on the hunt for great fun ways to teach & give options for my kids. I have found Red Apple Reading great for my 2 younger children, if they get done with a subject before my red apple 2other kids I can let them sit & do these fun yet learning skill games that teach the basics of reading. And I can sign into my dashboard later & check each child’s progress. So I have not implemented Red Apple Reading in my curriculum but instead I use it as a fun reward for getting work done & staying quiet & score because they are still learning.

It is totally online, you set up an account for yourself (parent), from their on your dashboard you set up an account for 1 to 3 kids by creating them a user name & password. It is really all rather easy to get started. Then you let your kids sign in & get red apple readinglearning.

The graphics are fun & the music is entertaining while the program prompts you to do tasks that are visual in matching words to objects or changing letters to make words & more. Your kids can play for hours or just a few minutes.

My youngest daughter is very visual & I have found this great for her in getting her focused to learn when she just red apple 1does not want to try. Anything that gets her in a learning frame of mind is a big plus to me & getting her to learn.

Red Apple Reading has over 700 fun activities & videos for your children to master & explore, with phonics, sight words, vocabulary, & reading comprehension. It is so great for struggling readers & early readers

Go here to go to the Red Apple Learning website to purchase or to learn more about this program

Review: Exfolimate – Get Silky Smooth Skin Naturally – I am in Love with this Skin Care Tool

 Say G’day to ultra smooth skin and goodbye to dull, flaky skin. Introducing Exfolimate ™ – the ultimate tool to give you younger, fresher looking and feeling skin.

I think I will be raving about this tool to every one I know, something so simple to use yet it has 003aamazing results from the very first use, visible results. We all know how important it is to skin health to exfoliate & this tool takes it to a whole new level of amazing. It gently removes dead skin cells leaving you with glowing skin from the first use. And get this only warm water is needed, or you can use warm baking soda water or whatever.

I love the results on my face & even my hands, but I am amazed at how much better my feet look & feel, I am prone to lots of peeling dead skin & there is none. And my arms & legs look & feel so soft.exfolimate

This tool is also amazing for teens & for blackheads, ok I am not a teen but I had one area between my mouth & chin where blackheads no matter what I did would happen, they are gone & my skin looks healthy. My back itches far less using Exfolimate on my back.

Honestly if you are trying to avoid toxins on your skin or not you will love these little tools, they come with a cord to attach & hang them right in the shower for easy use. You must use them as directed but I have not had any issues with them tearing or burning my skin & my sensitive skin honestly feels less sensitive while looking healthy. I do follow with oil cleansing for an amazing youthful glow.I have found the one skin care tool I can not live without, no more peeling flaky skin around my nose or on my face. It even works great at removing dry dead skin from my hairline & eyebrows.

Recipes using ZEDA Korean Pure Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder


- Deep Flavor -

ZEDA powdered green teas are made from HAND PICKED tea leaves that bloomed in the first week of May by Soa Dawon tea plantation in Korea.

ZEDA 2

Our globally certified organic powdered green tea Matcha is grown in limited quantity and harvested only once a year. It has a vibrant green colour, smooth and mellow flavour, and full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It can be enjoyed as hot/cold by itself as tea, Alternatively it can be used as flavor for smoothies or cooking. It is perfect for everyday drinking.

I so enjoy sitting down with a cup of hot matcha green tea, I love the smooth yet kinda bold ZEDA 1flavor & how well it pairs with the coconut oil I add to hot beverages. The first thing I noticed about this tea was the freshness & quality of the tea as I sipped it. You can taste the quality & goodness, but this tea powder can be used for so much more than just a soothing cup of tea, I have been enjoying it included in some of our favorite recipes & have enjoyed learning new recipes from the ZEDA tea Facebook page. Oh my goodness the uses are endless & it is a great way to get your kids involved in eating healthier, find some recipes & get in the kitchen with your kids. If you are homeschooling use it to teach them home ec, health, math (measuring) or just for fun.

It was so easy to add Matcha tea powder to recipes we make normally, we added 1 tsp & it seemed to work great in Smoothies, shakes, add to my bulletproof coffee. But we even added 1 to 3 tsp to our favorite baking recipes.

I will share a few here so you get the idea.

Zucchini muffins with Matcha tea powder:

Original recipe here for directions & more info.Zucchini muffin

  • 2 cups grated & squeezed zucchini (squeezing gets rid of liquid, sometimes we use grated carrot too) Just wash Zucchini, no need to skin.
  • 3/4 cup sugar of choice
  • 2 & 1/2 tsp ZEDA Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or oil of choice
  • 2 small or 1 large egg (whipped)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp natural unrefined saltZucchini muffins 1
  • 1/3 cup natural unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups Einkorn Flour (or flour of choice)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp organic baking cocoa
  • 1  & 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions here for the Zucchini muffins & I add the Matcha tea powder in the step with the dry ingredients.

My kids loved that the matcha tea pared so well with the zucchinis in this recipe, & if we added more matcha tea it gave them a nice green color that my kids just loved.

____________________________

Green Cake from scratch that kids love with Matcha green tea powder:

Original recipe here for directions & more info.nfr6k baking cups

  • 2 cups flour or cake flour (we like Einkorn flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ZEDA Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 1/2 tsp natural unrefined salt
  • 1/2 cup Palm Shortening
  • 1 tbsp. Raw coconut oil (room temp)
  • 1 cup sugar of choice
  • 3 large eggs  do not use cold eggs so let them sit out long enough to be room temp.
  • 3/4 cup of milk of choice

Directions here for this cake & a butter cream frosting.

My kids so enjoyed mixing this up talking about it looking like Shrek cake or a great cake to have at a party where the color was green.

__________________________

Now that we have gotten started adding Matcha to our recipes we want to add it to other ZEDA 3recipes such as our Banana bread, Sourdough breadEasy Bake from scratch, Pancakes, Cinnamon bites, Waffles & Cake frosting. We have also seen some recipes we very much want to try on the Zeda tea Facebook page such as, Matcha Pasta that would be great in our chicken casserole, Green tea Ice cream, Matcha frozen yogurt & more.

Oh the uses I can think of, yum!

What Brands of coconut oil do I trust for taking & oil pulling? That is simple I use & recommend these 2 great brands:

  1. Skinny & Co. Coconut oil: Medicinal grade Extra Virgin coconut oil 100% pure. (click link for ordering info)
  2. Tropical Traditions Virgin Gold Label Coconut oil. (click link for ordering info)

You will notice in a lot of my DIY posts I recommend colloidal silver, but where do I buy mine? I make my own with a Colloidal silver generator, I can make a qt for just pennies.
