Product Type: Laundry soap in the form of organic soap nuts
Organic Laundry Soap Nuts
Organic Laundry Soap Nuts are a great alternative for those who have irritation to the chemicals in traditional laundry soap. You probably already use natural soap without yucky chemicals, colorants, or synthetic perfumes, like ours here at Spero Soaps. But ugh, so many other chemical additives in our lives. So many places! It can be overwhelming!
Cleaners, shampoos, beauty products, and of course, our food can all contain nasty, unwanted chemicals! While we can’t help with the food aspect of healthier living, we do have Shampoo Bars, Conditioners, Soap, and lots of beauty products! And with the Organic Laundry Soap Nuts, you can care for your laundry more naturally as well. These are literally the shell of a berry off a tree. The insides are removed and the shell is used for soap. Natural saponin! What could be better than that❣️Btw, we recommend using Wool dryer balls for your dryer. It’s what we use here and LOVE them! (Sorry, but we don’t sell them.)
Instructions for Soap Nut Use:
Place 6-8 pieces in included bag and tie shut. Throw in laundry tub with clothes. There is no need to remove before rinsing, but do remove before drying or the nuts will be dried out in dryer and ruined. For use with hot or warm water just throw in washer. If using cool or cold water place bag of nuts in a cup of hot water for a few minutes to steep and then pour water and nuts into washer. Or alternatively turn washer on hot for the first 20 seconds or so and place under hot water, then switch to cool/cold. (This is the method I use.) If your water is very hot be careful not to place your hand into hot water.
How well do they work?
They work! But not so well on grease and stains! They are not a degreasing detergent. Personally, we keep a regular detergent on hand as well for greasy loads, or built up dirt. We use these for “normal” dirty laundry.
I even use them on young men’s work clothes. Like lawn mowing and digging clothes, not mechanic work, lol.
Instructions for hand washing:
Place 6-8 pieces in included bag and tie shut. Using hot water fill sink partially, and place bag into water for several minutes. Squeeze bag a couple times and adjust the water temperature according to label on item to be washed. Now wash as usual.
Usage: 12-16 loads per ounce, depending on water hardness and heat of water. Here at Spero Soaps we get about 12 loads per ounce as we use a lot of hot water, have a lot of boys (boys=dirt?), and have hard water.
Weight: 1-3 oz.
Will these work in HE machines? Answer from supplier: While we can’t guarantee the results of using our Soap Nuts in all brands and models of HE washing machines, many of our customers have used them successfully. The main concern with HE machines is saponin buildup. Since Soap Nuts are low sudsing, they generally work well in this type of washer.
