Soap nuts can also be used to clean dishes, as a shampoo to wash your hair, or for surface cleaning. They’re 100% natural and biodegradable and don’t contain any pesticides, as insects are naturally repulsed by saponin. They are completely safe for septic systems, gentle for use on sensitive skin, including baby clothes, and are also antimicrobial.

To use them as a laundry soap, place 5 to 6 soap nuts in a muslin bag – buy one, make your own out of fabric scraps, or just use a sock. You can wash in any temperature, although higher temperatures tend to be more effective as the heat aids in releasing the saponins, a substance which operates as a natural surfactant.
