What Are Soap Nuts?
Eco Nuts® Soap Nuts are a berry that grows in the Himalayas that naturally produces a soap. The soap is called saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.

I have tried several well-known and popular cloth diaper safe detergents and was perfectly happy with them, but I was always curious about Eco Nuts. I was intrigued and confused by how they worked. How could something that looks like a plastic walnut clean dirty diapers of all things! I had to know so when they were on one of my daily deal websites, I ordered them and haven’t looked back!
For diapers you put three nuts into one of the bags that are included in the box (4-5 for regular laundry), drop the bag in with your laundry and that’s it! You end up with clean, odorless diapers! They really do work and I will never go back to regular detergents again. I have even started using them on our regular laundry and they’re fantastic! You can reuse the nuts until they dissolve or remain soft, I find that I get about 5-6 uses out of one bag! I ordered these two boxes at the end of December and I still have one and a half boxes left! So not only do they work wonderfully, they’re extremely economical!
I love them and I’m pretty sure that you will too!
