Lehman's Laundry Soap Nuts

Currently Unavailable
They sounded too good to be true, so we put these little "nuts" to the ultimate test: a local dairy farmer's grimy work clothes. Incredibly, soap nuts got them cleaner than anything else his wife tried. The dried fruit from the Asian Soapberry tree, soap nuts produce saponin, a biodegradable, hypoallergenic and extremely effective detergent that leaves clothes clean, fresh and soft. Nothing else is needed - not even fabric softener.

  • 12-oz bag does up to 120 loads
  • Less than 17¢ a load!
  • Also great for dishwashing and general cleaning (make liquid soap with the included recipe)
  • Virtually fragrance-free
  • Comes with 2 reusable fabric bags - just put soap nuts in the bag and toss the whole thing in the wash
  • For front load machines make a liquid soap from the nuts  
  • Packaged in the USA

Note: Use 3 nuts per load, up to 3 times. Soap nuts work best in warm water, since warmth releases the saponin.

"Folks, I used this with the second wash of my son's cloth diapers...once dried they smelled like...NOTHING! That's what you want stinky diapers to smell like when they come out of the dryer! In fact, it even got rid of the fishy smell that the diaper cream leaves on the liners and soaks through. I plan to use this on his regular clothes washes too since he has sensitive skin."

"I love soap nuts, though I don't agree they are virtually odorless. My clothes smell really good, sort or like plums. Absolutely love soap nuts. <3 "

"I use a wringer washer. I use Fels Naptha, washing soda and borax. I purchased the nuts to boost the cleaning power for my husband's really filthy clothes. I plan to use the nuts for the clothes he wears when he cleans the barn or works on the tractor. I have never used the nuts alone, but I can tell you that in combination with the Fels Naptha mix that it got my husbands greasy clothes very clean. The Fels Naptha mix was not enough. I put one soap nut in per load and let it agitate with the greasy clothes for about 20 minutes. I left the clothes overnight then agitated the washer again for 30 minutes. My cold water is about 40 degrees in the winter and 55 degrees in the summer. The clothes did not have a perfume smell but they smelled clean to me. If you want to smell like flowers, this is not the product for you."

"I'm a desk jockey, so it's a little hard to tell how effective these are on my clothes, but my husband, who works construction, says they have been working well for his dirty clothes. I love the very light, clean scent, and I especially love that the water from the washer can be used in the garden."

"This works really well, but I'm always losing those little bags and finding them later after I fold clothes. Each bag of soap nuts comes with two but I suggest buying extra."

"Love the soapnuts! I tried them because of developing allergies and the itching was driving me crazy. Since using the soapnuts I stopped itching, my clothes are clean and smell like cotton instead of fragrance and saving money too! It's a winner for my family!"

"Purchased the Soap Nuts for Ayurvedic Hair Shampoo recipe. I haven't tried using them in my laundry, but they do a great job in cleaning my hair. Recommend that you do your research first for Ayurvedic pre-conditioning practices because the soap nuts by themselves will dry your hair out. Otherwise, I love them; they do a great job."
