Soap Nuts

Have you ever thought about making your own laundry or dish detergent? Think no more!

Finding a tried and true recipe can be hard - trust me, I've been there. There are so many more factors to consider far beyond what powders to actually mix together or what soap to grate. Blech.

You have to consider your water quality (hard or soft), the temperature of that water, and what rinse agent to use. And if you're worried about your dishes, you'll need two different powders for both chores.

Now that's a chore in itself. It's all a bit too much and there's no reason for it.

What if you could create one detergent to use in both appliances? Or if you're hand washing, one liquid to rule them all?

Yep, that was a movie reference.

People make this so complicated, but most of the time that's because they don't know there's another way!

Oh, hello, soap nuts! It's so great to finally meet you.

I've been using soap nuts for the past 6 years, ever since I owned my very first washing machine. I wanted to save money and use something natural and easy. Natural being the key word.

And then, I was introduced to soap nuts and I haven't faltered since. There's really no reason to! These babies can be used anywhere you would normally use soap:

  • hand soap
  • dishwasher
  • laundry
  • shampoo
  • general cleaning
  • animal bathing
  • body wash

Like, seriously, y'all. There is no end in sight.

The only issue some may have is that the liquid doesn't really lather, so it can be hard to tell if it's actually cleaning. But trust me, it is. And if you don't trust me, try it out for yourself. It's not a big financial investment, nor does it take much time.

Still don't believe me?


And by the way, my favorite reason for using these babies? They are oh so natural that they grow on trees! And you can grow your own if you start now. What a wonderful legacy for your children - free soap for life!
