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.

"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!"

"I love the idea of these nuts, but they are a bit more difficult to use with a front-loading washer due to the fact that they must be boiled to make a liquid form. If I had known this, I would not have bought extra bags but otherwise they are great."

"I like the soapnuts, however in our area were we have extremely hard water I'm only getting two or three loads using four nuts. Have thought about makeing the liquid detergent with them, but traditionally liquid detergents don't work well in hard water. Also, have found that using a little washing or baking soda helps."

"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."

"As a large farm family, we do loads and loads of DIRTY laundry. We LOVE the soap nuts. They do an excellent job of cleaning the clothing, a clean smell with no chemicals. They are terrific! You should try them for yourself."

"Very impressed after first use! Got my 4-year-old's t-shirt, covered with spaghetti sauce and unwashed for several days, COMPLETELY CLEAN. And, no strong detergent smell. I'm raving about these little nuts now!"

"So far so good, I've only used them a few times but they seem to do a great job and I love that they are natural. I've been using detergents and fabric softeners that are "free" of allergy causing agents, but I wasn't completely convinced. I found information that recommends using washing soda for extra cleaning power for really dirty or greasy clothes & since there are no whiteners in the soap nuts, they recommend oxyclean if the whites look dull."

"I have been using soap nuts for several months with great results. They work better than anything else I have tried on my husband's very dirty barn clothes. I have a high efficiency washer so I only use one or two soap nuts in the bag when using warm or hot water. If washing clothes in cold water I make the liquid as recommended on the package. To finish off the load of laundry I use a cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle instead of fabric softener."

"Love the idea but not sold on having to find the bag in the wash. I also don't like having to find the bag before rinse cycle. Probably won't get again. But they do work."
