How to make your laundry easier, or at least cheaper.
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Soap Nuts

Soap nuts are not a nut, but look like one. They are the small fruit of the sapindus mukorossi tree containing the substance Saponin, a natural detergent when soaked in water, growing in warmer, tropical climates such as India and Nepal. After the fruit falls to the ground, it is dried in the sun. These were used for centuries as a cleaner in many South Asian Countries. Soap nuts are organic, antibacterial, anti-fungal, biodegradable and hypo-allergenic.

They can be used in front and top loaded machines because they produce a small amount of suds...
