All Natural Laundry Soap for about $20.00 a YEAR!

I posted about Soap Nuts a few years ago, but wanted to update and spread the word about this awesome, all natural solution for laundry soap.  I discovered Soap nuts about 5 years ago and am still using them.  It is a nut that grows on a tree, is safe, natural alternatives to harmful chemicals. Soap nuts release saponin (an effective, hypoallergenic, biodegradable organic cleaning agent. If you suffer from allergies, have sensitive skin, use cloth diapers, or want to do your part for a greener earth, soap nuts fit the bill. Soap nuts leave laundry clean, fresh and soft; dishes, pots and pans sparkling clean; your hair and scalp healthy – plus offer a plethora of green household cleaning uses.

I use them for laundry primarily.  In cold water I just put them in a small muslin bag (comes with the nuts) and wash a few loads with them.  For hot water washes I make a liquid by pouring boiling water over a handful of nuts and let it sit over night. It makes about a quart, which I keep in the fridge.  That amount will do about 20 loads of laundry.

You can use this liquid for a Mosquito Repellent, for hand soap or shampoo.

Here’s a Guide on Growing Soap Nuts

I have asked both Grassroots Market and Whole foods to carry these..so far no luck.  BUT, if you ask each time you go in and they continue to get requests, perhaps they will get them in for us!
