Soap Nuts Benefits – Why You Should Use Them


There are many benefits to using soap nuts as your laundry detergent

Bad Smell

1. They are amazing at getting rid of odors that other detergents cannot

The way we discovered them was through cloth diapering. My wife, Erin, was trying to find a detergent that would get rid of the smells, but none of the name brands seemed to work. When she found soap nuts online, she was skeptical, but decided to try them anyway. To her surprise, they worked better at removing odors than any other detergent she had tried. Even musty dish cloths and tea towels were no match.

2. They will not aggravate your sensitive skin

After finding how well soap nuts worked on cloth diapers, we started using them for all of our laundry. The results were amazing: For most of my life, I had skin issues, but had no idea what was causing them. One of these issues was eczema that had stretched across my belly area for years. Within a month of changing detergents, it cleared up completely. To this day, if Erin uses a different detergent in the laundry, I can tell immediately because I get itchy all over. Who knew that laundry detergent could have such a big impact on your skin?

3. They are not harmful to the environment

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on your commercial laundry detergent? Take a look, and search the internet for the effects those ingredients have on the environment. Even the ones that claim to be ‘Green’ and ‘Eco Friendly’ will have chemicals in them that are not good for your skin or the environment. Now compare these ingredients to what you are using when you put soap nuts into your laundry: An organic fruit, or berry, that grows on trees in a tropical climate. Which one do you think is better for the environment and your skin?

4. You can use them to make an all-purpose cleaner

Now that we have come to the conclusion that soap nuts are great for the environment, and do an amazing job at cleaning your clothes, the question can be raised of ‘What else can you use them for?’. The answer to this is pretty much any of your household cleaning. If you take a look at the recipe on this page, you can make an all-purpose cleaner that will work on almost everything in your home. From windows to jewelry to floors, soap nuts can take care of all your cleaning needs.
