I tried these Eco Nuts; a natural laundry soap that my nephew Sam recommended. It's about $10 for 100 loads. I wasn't too sure when it arrived. Weird nuts are going to get our clothes clean? You get five ounces of nuts which are dried berry shells from the Sapindus mukorossi (soapberry) tree and two reusable-cloth bags. Fragrance free, certified USDA organic, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, non-toxic, and kills odors.
You place 4 to 5 eco nuts into the cloth bag and tie shut. This will give you about 10 loads of wash.
I'm keeping a notepad and pencil on the dryer to keep track of how many times I've used the bag.
I was very skeptical at first; to say the least... but the clothes are very clean and fresh. Like they've been hung out to dry on a beautiful sunny day. I didn't use any fabric softener because I wanted to check out this nuts on their own. Our jeans are soft, tee shirt soft... everything looks great. They claim no softeners is needed and it's true! I think I just maybe a little nutty for these little nuts.
