Soap Nuts? Soup to nuts?

No – definitely Soap Nuts. Have you heard about these? It’s a natural soap, used mainly in this country for laundry, though you can find premade products for other uses. I saw them mentioned on a message board and decided to look into them. soapnuts11

This is what Wikipedia has to say:

“Soap nuts contain saponin, a natural detergent which is used to clean clothes. Soap nuts have become popular as an environmentally friendly alternative to manufactured, chemical detergents . A few nuts can be placed in a cotton drawstring bag in with a washload and reused several times. Soap nuts are safe for washing silk, woolens and other delicate fabrics.”

I was completely intrigued and found a small trial sized package on Amazon for just a few bucks, so I ordered one. You can find that here.Larger sizes are hereand here.
soapnutsI don’t know what to expect, but people who use them seem completely sold. If they last as well as advertised, they are quite economical too. I found the whole idea pretty interesting and I thought you might feel the same way. If you have used them or know someone who does, please leave a comment, sharing your experience. I will let you know how they worked for me sometime next week. Have a good day, my friends!
