I found out today about this really cool way to wash. Use a soap that grows on trees. Yes, you heard me right - soap nuts.
In fact, they are eco-friendly, good for you, and CHEAP!
I have been using a free and clear detergent for years. I know even the regular detergent isn't good for you, but I just don't have the $$$ to really do much about that. Soon that will change.
The soap nuts also naturally soften fabrics, so that means away with dryer sheets.
I am going to try them out and see how they work for my family. I imagine they will work pretty well (a friend in my neighborhood uses them, so if they work for her, I can’t see why they wouldn’t work for me).
If you read my last post, you know we’re doing a big switcheroo at our house this year. Add to that list – switching detergent for SOAP NUTS!
