GIVEAWAY! Irish Twins Homekeeping Kit

**This Giveaway is now Closed. Congratulations to Patricia (pat64…)! A big thanks to all who entered.

Was de-toxing your home of products filled with dangerous chemicals one of your New Year’s resolutions? If so, you’re gonna LOVE what Irish Twins Soap Co. has to offer!

Irish Twins Soap Co. is an eco-friendly cottage business based in South Dakota, and run by sisters Erin Nelson and Dawn Schwandt. These ladies strive to offer their customers the highest quality, non-toxic soaps and household cleaners possible.

They carry a full line of rustic soaps and specialty items such as an Old Fashioned Shaving Kit, Doggie Soap, Rosemary Shampoo Bars, and a Dead Sea Mud Soap which detoxes, rejuvenates, and moisturizes skin types of all kinds.


At Irish Twins Handmade Soap Company we believe in natural, good-for-you products ….that are good-for-the earth too. 

Our soaps are safe, non-toxic natural alternatives to harmful synthetic chemicals.  They are biodegradable with no added synthetics, phosphates, ammonias, chemicals, toxins or artificial colors or perfumes.  They are cruelty-free and minimally packaged. We try to be mindful of every purchase we make and strive to support fair trade, organic and sustainable businesses.

Our products are handmade with using the highest quality ingredients derived from nature.  Our soaps are made with the oils of olive, coconut, sweet almond, castor, and sunflower, and butters such as shae and cocoa.  We use no fragrance oils, only the purest essential oils, herbs and garden botanicals such as chamomile, peppermint, calendula, comfrey, lavender and rose petals.  Oatmeal, coffee and cornmeal is added to some bars as a gentle exfoliant.  They are moisturizing, with a rich and luxurious lather.



Irish Twins also created an all natural Homekeeping Line, which includes this really neat Homekeeping Kit pictured above.

Product Description

Clean green! This “Homekeeping” kit has it all!  Just right for a wedding gift, housewarming, or to get started with converting your home to eco-friendly products.

1 lb. Lavender Laundry Concentrate:  Perfect for all types of laundry and perfect for both standard and HE washers.  Use two tablespoons per load {one for HE washers}.  16 loads – standard {32 loads HE} *try a spalsh {1/4 cup} of white vinegar in your rinse cycle for fluffy, non-static laundry.  Use instead of fabric softener.

1 lb. Lime Kitchen and Bath Scrub:  A delightful eco-friendly citrus scrub for showers, tubs, toilets.  Don’t have to get our your gloves and mask to clean anymore.  Won’t scratch stainless steel.  *Think about adding the refillable shaker or two. Handy to fill and set one by the kitchen sink, and one in the bathroom for the sink/tub.

Refillable Aluminum Shaker:  Refill the shaker with Lime Kitchen and Bath Scrub and leave by the sink, tub, toilet, shower, countertop, etc.

I’ve been putting this Homekeeping Kit to the test for the past week, and I have to say I honestly LOVE these products! Not only was I impressed with their beautiful packaging, but they smell absolutely AMAZING. And yes, they get the job done fabulously. My clothes have been clean, freshly scented, and actually softer than usual (even w/out using a vinegar rinse). I also noticed that the laundry detergent made gorgeous suds in my washing machine, something I haven’t seen in a very long time with our super hard well water. The kitchen and bath scrub and shaker were a dream to use as well.

If you are looking to kick start your organic housecleaning supplies, or if you need the perfect wedding/housewarming gift to give a friend, or even if you just want to pamper yourself… the Homekeeping Kit is just what you need!

Here’s The Best Part!
