Converted to soap nuts! Clean clothes. Some tips.

After 3 months of use I’m never going back to washing powders and liquids. It cleans perfectly, has no toxins and is very economical. I read a few tips from previous reviewers but will summarise here. Place the soap nut bag inside a zipped mesh laundry bag. This will catch any bits of soap nut that may escape, especially if you use a high spin. Add a tablespoon of soda crystals to your detergent compartment. Add a few drops of essential oil to your conditioner compartment. I use tea tree oil but lavender is also good. I add 5 “whole” nuts per wash. Then remove any “flakes” from the bag after every wash, leaving any “nut pieces” in the bag. I then top up with a few more soap nuts before the next wash. Soap nuts can be reused if they produce a soapy liquid when squeezed. I highly recommend.

They blocked the filter

I had great hopes of this sustainable product but there are 2 main problems.. one is that the bag unties in the wash and it’s a pale ecru colour so you have to scramble through all the wet washing to retrieve it as it’s tiny. Why not a bright striped bag? Easy to locate,. The second issue is the nuts escape every so often and block the filter in my machine so I then get the floor flooded emptying the machine to get at the blocked filter. So sadly I cannot recommend. Needs a bit more sensible thought to be effective and not time consuming

Does the job

The smell of the large bag of soap nuts does not transfer to clothes. I like them because the clothes actually smell of nothing afterwards ie clean (as opposed to artificial smells in other detergents). great for wool and silk.

Used for a couple of years. Fab. I put a few drops of essential oil in rinse drawer for a tiny bit of scent.

Did not work

I was confused initially with the name soap nuts when really they are the outer shell husks, not the nut. I also think they have a strange smell. I used them as advised, any sweaty clothes still smelled sweaty and given that fact I'm not sure how clean the rest of the clothes are. I don't want to have to start adding conditioner and stain remover, as I think that defeats the whole idea of using this product. I also tried using a lot more nuts than stated but it made no difference. I think I've wasted my money and will be going back to Ecover Zero.
