If you haven't already heard of or tried soap nuts, you are going to want to find out where you can get them and wonder why you haven't been using them your entire laundry washing life! They are amazing and grow on trees. Basically, soap nuts are the dried shells of the soapberry. The shells actually contain a substance called saponin, which provides a soaping affect, but no foaming like chemical filled commercial "detergents." The trees grow in India and Nepal and are a sustainable resource that gives a source of income to the local population. I have personally switched to using soap nuts for my laundry needs and am way more pleased than ever! There are no harsh chemicals being used to launder my family's clothing and better yet, I don't use any type of fabric softener because the soap nuts do that naturally! Just like with traditional detergents, soap nuts sometimes need a little "support" in getting out tougher odors and stains. I usually add borax if this is the case with my laundry. My favorite soap nuts are from a company called NaturOli. A visit to their website gives you a feeling of relaxation, purity, and wellness! Besides soap nuts they offer many other pure and natural products as well. I love and have tried several of their skincare line as well as their soap nuts! Check them out, you will be glad you did!NaturOli™ | Truly Natural Skin Care - Soap Nuts - Natural Soaps

Good going frugalgirl, creating awareness of soap nuts. Too many people don't yet know about this wonderful cleaning product. we need to spread the news.
Soap Nuts - The BEST way to spread the word - GIFTS!!!
There's probably no better way to introduce soap nuts to people than to let them try them for themselves. As we all know, to use soap nuts is to love them. So, this year at NaturOli we put together a plethora of fun gift ideas using soap nuts that will meet virtually any budget. From Soap Nuts Santa bags, to Soap Nut gift canisters, to gifts baskets - you'll find that "right" gift. Hey, don't forget you can also just get a big bag and a bunch of wash bags. Get some ribbon and make up BUNCHES of stocking stuffers!!! You can also get samplers, but you can save money this way. That's always a good thing, right? Browse through the store pages and numerous categories. Here's just a few links to help:
Store home page: https://store.naturoli.com/home.php
Holiday Gifts store page: https://store.naturoli.com/home.php?cat=289
Soap Nuts store page: https://store.naturoli.com/home.php?cat=285
Again, browse around the many different categories and check what's "On Sale", too! Things change everyday. Many items are selling out fast so don't wait too long. Demand is exceeding our expectations. We had to even overnight in more canisters because they are selling so fast. Have fun! Happy Holiday and our warmest wishes to you ALL!!!

I found a better website to purchase soap nuts. They appear to be higher quality and lower cost. try www.earthcarmarket.com they are good people.
Hey Cathy and Matt, Check this one out - from a post nine months ago. Do you think that someday people will EVER GET IT???
Dear Dr. Rust or whoever you are,
Please try to see through bigger and brighter lenses. I know it is hard. WE are not your competition. If you want to make a difference that is meaningful, try to take some business from P & G, or 7th Gen. Are they too big for you to challenge? You've got a product that blows them away... Can't you sell it against them? We do - every single day. You actually might benefit our cause (that is much greater than all of us) - and possibly help to genuinely make this a better world - if you would direct some of your energy that way. If you want to REALLY see the marketplace you have to work with, simply look at the stars on a clear night. THAT is how big it is.
This really didn't dignify any response, but I'm in a mood to go ahead and just step into the mud with this one. I've had too many similar mentalities to deal with this week. Hence, I can't resist making at least a small comment.
BTW: Get yours, or your wife's, or friend's, or whomever's web site that you are promoting updated with some numbers that at least has a faint resemblance to the facts. People are not stupid.
Find the truth - and find your freedom.
