Eco Nuts Organic Natural Laundry Soap 100 Loads Fragrance Free -- 6.5 oz
Doesn't work on heavily soiled or synthetic fabric
I was excited to find this product, but the more I have used it, the more disappointed I have become. Eco nuts do not work on synthetic fabric. My husband's work uniforms came out of the wash still dirty. A dress shirt which was only part synthetic and not very dirty still smelled like the fragrance in the deodorant I use. Lightweight/vintage/heathered style tshirts came out of the wash with horrible pilling. To the point that about 4-5 shirts are ruined and aren't good for anything besides wearing around the house or yard. I would give this one star, but it does do well on towels and flannel sheets.
For reference we have city water that is not considered hard. I have a front loading HE washer and I used the product as directed.

Brought Eco Nuts Natural Laundry Soap 100 Loads Organic Fragrance Free for my baby's laundry. It produced no suds whatsoever, and the clothes did not come out clean. Going back to dapple laundry detergent.
Looking at the price, the results that you obtain is very disappointing.

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.
