Eco Nuts Organic Natural Laundry Soap 10 Loads Fragrance Free -- 0.5 oz
Easy, Chemical & Scent Free, and Fun!
I have severe chemical sensitivities, and tolerate this product very well. I didn't smell a slight apple smell, as another review mentioned; I don't smell a fragrance at all, which is perfect for me. I'm not sure how these work with heavily soiled laundry, but they seem to do the job for me. I will buy them again.

Didn't clean clothes
I bought this after reading the great reviews. I wanted to reduce my household waste (packaging) and am always looking for good, organic products. After washing a load of clothes--with ALL of the nuts--the clothes still smelled dirty. I had to rewash everything.

fun way to do laundry
Have been wanting to give soap nuts a try for a while. Finally decided to get the 10 load box. First off, they were a lot smaller than I thought they would be! The 10 load box is so tiny! The 10 load box comes with 5 soap nuts and a little bag to put them in. You put the soap nuts in the bag, tie it tight, then throw it into your washing machine, add clothes and that's it! A health/wellness blogger that I read had suggested putting the soap nuts (in their bag) into a small jar of warm/hot water, cover with lid, and shake them good (to get them to sud up) if you wash your clothes in cold water. I did this and it got them 'suds-y'! I poured all the soapy water and the bag of soap nuts into the washing machine as it filled with cold water, and then filled the washer with clothes. [Once the clothes are clean, remove the soap nuts bag, hang it up (I put it on a hanger) until your next load. You don't want to put the soap nuts into the dryer!!]
The soap nuts give the clothes a sweet apple scent! (It goes away after they have dried.) These soap nuts got our clothes just as clean as the store bought laundry soap did, but without any chemicals! I also like the thought of composting the soap nuts, once they are all soaped out. Highly recommend soap nuts!

Purchasing out of pure curiosity was worth it!
I was skeptical, but I'll admit curiosity got the best of me so I had to give it a try. I've washed five loads, and the nuts in the bag are still in good condition so I know it will last another five. My husband's greasy clothes even came out clean and odorless. The directions are simple. Very convenient. Place the nuts in the bag, pull the string to close, throw it in with your dirty clothes, and start the machine. Don't worry about removing the nuts until the clothes are ready to go in the dryer. Be sure not to throw the bag of nuts in the dryer. That is easily done if you don't pay attention. I caught myself before it happened. I have very sensitive skin and have not experienced an allergic reaction.

Eco Nuts, Saving the planet one load at a time!
My laundry was clean and odor free. Cleanliness wise...all loads were clean I could not tell the difference between using another detergent or using Eco Nuts! I was so surprised. Surprised that NUTS cleaned my clothes. This would be awesome for someone who has allergies and I will totally use this with my new babies clothes because you want the best for their delicate skin.
