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.

"I bought these because my daughter has terrible eczema and I was hoping to alleviate her problem. I am very impressed with their ability to clean. Even the dirty socks from the girls working at the barn were completely clean with no soapy residue! I have seen only a mild difference with her eczema though, but it has only been 2 weeks and not everything has gone through with the soapnuts yet. I plan to continue using them."

"First off Ive got to say I LOVE Lehmans!!! When I saw these soap it nuts in the catalog it all sounded too interesting so I had to give them a try. The day they came in my husband had been under the house to repair some plumbing lines and he came back in the house covered with that Oklahoma red dirt that never comes out of clothes. So the nuts got put to the test. Put a few of the nuts in the bag, dropped them into my non electric washer (also from Lehmans) and UNBELIEVABLE..the clothes came out so clean. There was NO Oklahoma red dirt,nothing but clean. I was amazed and I WILL BE BUYING MORE of these nuts. THANK YOU LEHMANS.."

"I have recently tried these Soap Nuts. They do a good job. It's odd to see a SUDSLESS wash...but it does seem to clean the clothes without leaving any scent or residue. They are not miracle workers...you still have to prespot grease and heavy stains just like you do with any traditional detergent. But they are inexpensive, natural and seem to work well!"

"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."

"Removed odor but not even basic dirt. Bit disappointing, but was worth a try. Maybe the liquid soap recipe that came with it will work better?"

"The soap nuts work very well! Very convenient, no mess. My wife puts them in the washer before the clothes while it's filling and adds soda for whitening. Seems to work better than putting the clothes in first. It also dissolve the soda better."

"I simply love using the Laundry Soap Nuts! With lots of boys at home I knew they would put this item to the test. Their clothes came out clean and look great. I don't believe I will buy traditional laundry soap ever again...."

"I was skeptical, but I bought them out of curiosity. Boy, do these work great! My husband's dirty jeans came out cleaner than when I used the commercial products. The only thing I would advise is this: If you are used to a "fabric softener" smell, add a little fabric softener. You don't need the fabric softener because the clothes come out of the dryer nice and fluffy with no static cling! I am a definite "convert" and will continue to use them."

"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."
