The Lucky Winner (of a bag of nuts) Is.....

After listing out all your names in random order, each name was assigned a number (again, in random order) and then I used and random number generator and Laura, you were lucky #13!
Please email me your address and I will get your soap nuts sent out to you.
Thanks to everyone who took part and for bearing with me on my crazy ramblings. Remember to check out Katie's Cleaner Planet site to check out where you can get your own soaps nuts. They are only $10.00 at Thrifty's (even on the mainland ladies!) They are honestly amazing, and for 80-100 loads out of a bag, WAY cheaper than what most of us spend on detergent.
Katie does recommend using an oxygen-based bleach for your colors and whites to keep them white and bright, and Nellie's sells an all natural one!
And if you can't get past the fact that your clothes won't "smell good", here are a couple products I use. After not using fabric softener (or dryer sheets) for years, I've discovered this awesome fabric softener that isn't scented with harsh and toxic chemicals, and leaves my clothes soft with a very gentle lavender scent. It's by a company called Live For Tomorrow, based out of Port Moody. They sell their product all over the Vancouver and the lower mainland and the island. And I LOVE that when you return your glass bottle, you are refunded $1 and the company REUSES it. I also use Nellie's Dryer Balls with her all natural citrus fragrance stick (next time I will actually read the label and get the lavender scent sticks instead) that you put inside and it releases natural scent in your dryer as well.
I've also just been introduced to a company called Chartreuse that sells a huge line of organic home care, make up, and facial care that sells a reusable dryer sheet that you can put a couple of drops of essential oil on to gently and naturally scent your clothes and kill static!
Thanks for reading, thanks for visiting.
Be Blessed.
Happy Friday Friends!
