Do your laundry with all-natural, unprocessed soap nuts. Yes, these are actual nuts, well, actually berries, from a tree that grows in the Himalayas. The berries naturally produce a soap called saponin, which works as a surfactant to lift stains from fabrics and keep dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away. Unlike detergent, soap nuts leave no residue, so they are ideal for babies and people with sensitive skin. I’ve used them for years and they really do work—in fact, they are my favorite way to wash clothes. My clothes are very soft.”Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified USDA Organic by Oregon Tilth. Our soap nuts are both de-seeded and sterilized – the only soap nuts on the market that are both!” This site also sells other organic cleaning and laundry products and they have a lot of natural laundry tips.
