Soap Nuts Customer Review
I’m very happy with the soap nuts. I bought them from this company because it was the best price. They arrived quickly and I’ve been using them about three weeks for all my laundry with great results. I’ll never go back to detergent now! It was my first purchase from this website but I’ll definitely buy from here again
