Soap nuts

The other day I ordered some soap nuts from Green And Nutty – and they arrived (rather quickly) yesterday (or today… I forget.. a package on the doorstep anyway). Kristy (owner) was telling me about the soap nuts ages ago… and I finally got around to giving them a go (otherwise known as “stewart put two and two together when needing to buy washing powder”).

I don’t have an allergy problem to normal soaps and aren’t on some exotic “everything must be natural” trip (although it does have a certain appeal).

One bonus thing (for me) is that I *know* that what I’m using for washing clothes is vegan.

Anyway, first wash with them today and no problems to report. Seemed to produce clean clothes (although weren’t that dirty to begin with). Will report further in future washes.

There’s a 2-for-1 offer for December which I took (1kg for $17.99)… which should be enough to last a year (for the average household… and I’m smaller than that).

  1. Hands down soap nuts are changing the way we think about cleaning. Not only are they awesome for laundry (inexpensive by comparison to store bought detergents if you know how to use the properly), but I’ve replaced nearly all the bad chemical cleaners in my home using soap nuts in various ways. Thank you, Mother Nature!
