Nothing But Soap Review and Giveaway Ends May11th! ~CLOSED~



I was lucky enough to get to sample three different products from Nothing but Soap. Sample sizes of cleaning powder, dishwasher soap, and laundry detergent. I would definitely have to agree that going with homemade is not only greener but cleaner!

With the cleaning powder I tested it by dividing my dirty stove top in half. I cleaned one half with liquid cleaner I usually use and the other half with this powder soap. I sprinkled some around the stove top (maybe a teaspoon sized amount) and then wet a scrub brush and went at it. I spent exactly 60 seconds on each side with the cleaner of choice. Then I allowed 15 seconds to wipe it down. The side I used this powder soap on was sparking! It was clean, easy, and fast! The other side was about 80% clean but was greasy still and needed alot more time of wiping all the dirt up. I would seriously recommend this.

The laundry detergent I went to a laundromat and started two loads. One with the normal liquid soap I use and the other with the powder laundry detergent from Nothing but Soap. After washing for the exact same amount of time and drying the same amount of time, I examined the clothes. I found both to be 'clean' and didn't feel either was lacking. The liquid one I normally use was scented and therefore smelled 'prettier' but honestly I prefer the clean scent I got with the powder better. After having worn the clothes I have not found any type of irritation from any of the clothes from my husband, my 3 year old, or myself.

I 'tested' the dish soap by sprinkling some in a sink filled with water and irritated the water, the same with the other side filled with liquid soap and irritated that water. I put a dirty plate in both sides. I let them soak for 15 minutes and then lifted them up and wiped them down. I was pleasantly surprised to find they both washed just as easily as each other. Same ease really so no complaints there!

I was really impressed with these samples I was given and intend to try out some more products soon :)
