SudNuts Soap Nuts All Natural Laundry Soap

Pros: clean well,

Cons: some shells were broken

Soap nuts really do work.  I was skeptical myself, I used to be the girl who used every product imaginable to get my clothes smelling fresh.  And then I learned about all the chemicals that go into making my clothes "fresh".   A friend was using soap nuts and gave me a few to try.  My clothes smell clean.  Not the same kind of tide fake smelling flower clean, but clean nonetheless.  I'd say they smell fresh.  I didn't need to use fabric softener either.  I ordered some online from sudnuts.com.  Sudnuts advertises minimal packaging, so some of the nuts were broken in shipment.  This really doesn't matter though, since they work just as well broken as whole.  They come in a reusable cloth bag and have no plastic packaging.
 

They come out to be cheaper than laundry soap too.

Instructions for Use:

 

Add soap nuts to the included reusable muslin sack.  For hot water washes use 1 whole soap nut, 2 for heavy or soiled loads.  For cold water washes, add 3 whole soap nuts, 4 for heavy or soiled loads.  You can reuse your cold water washed soap nuts 2-3 times.  For hot water washes the saponin is released faster than with cold.  Discard hot water washed soap nuts after one use.  (They can be thrown directly into your compost bin.)  Tie the sack closed, and throw into the washtub.  For best results rinse in cold water.  There is no need to remove the soap nuts for the rinse cycle since saponin is released in hot water.  

 

For best results with cold water wash, soak 2 whole soap nuts in a small amount of hot water for a few minutes.  Saponin is released fastest in hot water, just a quick soak will improve your results.  Toss the soaked soap nuts and water directly into the wash tub.  This will cause your soap nuts to release more saponin and work harder.  This is also great for handwashing your delicates.  Since their is no left over residue, soap nuts are a great choice for hand washing delicate items.

 

It is more important to separate your colours when using soap nuts.  It's advised to use an oxygen bleach with problem whites.  Oxygen bleach is a bleach alternative, and is an environmentally friendly option to bleach.  

 
Soap nuts can be used as dish soap as well.  Put a soap nut or two into a cup and run your hot water into the sink over them.  This will allow for the maximum of saponin to be released.
