Eco Nuts Natural Laundry Soap 100 Loads Organic Fragrance Free -- 6.5 oz
So much better than carrying HUGE jugs home!
These seem to work great! The bag that you use in the washer is hard to open for some reason?!? I like that if you accidentally out them in the dryer you can still reuse them. If you are doing a cold load of laundry, put them into the bag and soak in a cup of hot water for about 3 minutes to “activate” the saponin (sudsing power) in the soap nuts. I will never buy the giant jugs ever again!

Great fragrance free laundry soap
I was surprised at how well this soap worked. My laundry is just as clean as it was with other name brand liquid or powder soap. Soap nuts don't leave an odor in our clothing either. I would not have believed that a nut could clean clothes until I lived in Belgium for a year and used a product made out of these nuts while we were there. The woman I bought the product from in Belgium said her mother used to wash their clothes with a wooden washboard from a certain tree wood, that leached out soap when it was wet so they didn't have to buy or make soap. Also when we were in Italy I noticed that some of the trees were actually emitting large amounts of soap that ran down the streets when we were walking in heavy rain one evening. A box of 100 soap nuts lasted me about 100 loads when used as directed. I then made liquid soap out of the used nuts with a recipe I found on the internet. I use the liquid for washing dishes and hands. I like the fact that I have a little bitty box in my laundry room holding my laundry soap and I no longer have to lug home large bottles or tubs of soap anymore. The price is unbelievably cheap per load of clothes. I am so glad I found these soap nuts. Also, I am no longer putting unnecessary chemicals in our laundry and environment. Our cows and dogs actually drink the water that runs our of our washing machine. I already checked and cannot find a way to buy and ship the soap I loved so much in Belgium. These work just as well though. Soap nuts don't suds up a lot though so don't be surprised. They still clean well.

Product works well
After getting the hang of using these soap nuts, I think they work well and keep my mind at easy knowing that there are no chemicals being used on our laundry, especially my children's cloth diapers!

Excellent product. It works well, and doesn't leave a scent on your clothes. There is a slight apple smell to the soap nuts when they're wet, but that doesn't transfer to the clothes. Much easier than trying to make my own detergent!

These work great on all my laundry, from food-soiled towels to delicates. Fuzzy pajamas and blankets come out almost as soft as when I purchased them (and much softer than with detergents). Whenever I replace the soap nuts, my clothes have a light apple smell!
The only bad thing about these is that the two bags they come with smell horrible until you wash them a couple times.
