Washing Laundry with Soap Nuts/Laundry Berries.
It does not get much simpler. Doing laundry can even be fun! Really.

Most laundry detergents on the shelves of our supermarkets contain numerous chemical substances, synthetic dyes, fragrances and fillers. These chemical substances are effective in deeply penetrating our clothes - cleaning, sanitizing and scenting them. However, these same chemicals build up in our clothes and linens and transfer to our skin leading to short term and/or long term skin troubles for some individuals. They break down fabric fibers and fade colors and they are harmful to our environment. Soap Nuts are simply a better way.

Basic Laundry Directions: The simplest, most common and traditional method of washing laundry with soap nuts is by using the raw nuts in a drawstring bag, and simply tossing the bag in with your laundry.

Can I use soapnuts in my high-efficiency (or front loading) washing machine?
Absolutely! In fact, because they don’t create many suds, soapnuts are great for high-efficiency (HE, or front-loading) washers! A front-loading washing machine requires a special detergent, called HE detergent, to allow it to clean your laundry properly. HE detergent is unique because it doesn’t produce lots of suds like regular detergent does.

Soapnuts are naturally a low-sudsing product — with no added fillers, dyes or chemicals to create bubbles in the wash. But even without the bubbles, you will find that the soapnuts will thoroughly clean your laundry.

Warm or Hot Water Wash:
Put 4 or 5 soap nut shells or equivalent pieces, about a half-ounce, in cotton or muslin drawstring bag and tie bag securely.

Toss in washing machine before you add your clothes.

Remove from washer at end of the wash to dry (leave soap nuts in bag).

Re-use the same soap nuts 3 to 5 times (or more). The soap nuts are no longer effective when they become thin, mushy and very light tan or gray. You can then toss them on your compost heap because soap nuts are naturally biodegradeable. Keep the muslin bag and reuse.

Cold Water Wash:
Simply make a cup of soap nut 'tea' by soaking 4 or 5 bagged soap nuts in a cup of very hot water for approximately 3 minutes.

Pour both the soap nuts liquid and bag in wash.

Remove from washer at end of the wash to dry (leave soap nuts in bag).

Re-use 3 to 5 times (or more). Soap nuts are no longer effective when they thin, turn soft, mushy and very light tan or gray.
