Customer Reviews

I love how they are all natural and don't bother anyone's skin.
Marilyn M. Freitag
I've been using soap nuts for my cloth diapers for a while now, and I haven't had any of the stink or buildup issues that I had with other detergents.

The soap-nuts are as good as it states. It works well and I will not go back to liquid detergents or other natural laundry detergents. I have skin allergies with many things but I haven't had any problems with these nuts. I am sorry I had not discovered the soap-nuts earlier. I have used non-petro-chemical detergents for almost 30 years but never knew about soap-nuts until I saw it on Amazon. Thanks Amazon! Just want to point out that I don't use the dried soap-nuts into the wash as it states.Rather, pre-soak the nuts in some water in a large jar. I don't soak all the nuts at once but add to the jar as I use up the old. I use some of the liquid along with the nuts.I can normally do 3 large loads with 4-5 soaked soap-nuts and some of the liquids. The liquid will be light brown but does not stain clothes. It is the color of the nuts. I love this stuff. If you don't pre-soak your nuts as I do, you can throw some nuts into the little cotten bag provided and use a little hot water in your wash to start the activation process. Remember that the nuts are dried so it needs pretty warm to hot water to activate the soap. I leave the bagged nuts through wash and rinse cycle.If the little bag of nuts goes into the dryer accidently after the rinse cycle, don't worry, the nuts just gets dried up in the dryer but does not harm anything, just throw away the parched nuts. This is all natural and you can't hurt it but keep away from chidren. ENJOY!

I used 2 in my first wash and they made a right mess of my clothes. I called the company left a message, but heard nothing back. I am going back to Bodhi Soap Nuts. Sadly I ordered these because Bodhi Soap Nuts were out of stock. I have been using soap nuts for 2 years and have never had any problems until now.

I have been using soap nuts for several months because of chemical allergies, they take up small amounts of space; and, best of all, they work! I had tried a small amount first because I wanted to be sure that they did what they said they did. Then I ordered the larger amount. I was making my own laundry detergent, using white vinegar for softner and needing to always use a second rinse. Now that is not necessary. I have noted that each load seemed to get my clothes cleaner and softer. An added benefit is that I save the soap nuts and put them in a jar with water and it gives me a wonderful cleaning solution. I use tea tree oil in every laundry load I do for disinfecting and so I feel the soap nuts have been disinfected even though used. I have found that I do not need to make up most of my cleaning supplies with using this product. It cleans windows and mirrors, fronts of dishwashers, etc with a wonderful shine; just be sure to wipe completely dry and polish. I have been using it on my old fiberglass tub after showering and it leaves a nice shine. I just spray and use a long handled mop to spread it around and then rinse. I had tried everything on this tub (we bought our mobile home used and nothing took off the stuff that was on it until now)....so...Maggies soap nuts are the best! I cannot have enough of them....what are you waiting for?? try some. experiment with the liquid, etc.

I've been using these in place of laundry detergent for several months and love them. Our clothes come out clean, soft & fresh smelling and I like knowing my family doesn't have all those chemicals on their skin. It's also nice to know I'm not harming the environment. Now if I could just find the same thing for my dishwasher!

I've only used this product for a few loads of laundry so far, and I can say that these definitely clean your clothes! They come out smelling so fresh and clean. A few notes:
- Stains DO need to be pretreated. The soap nuts alone didn't remove the food stains from my 3-yr old's shirts.
- For brightening I added oxygen-based bleach to my brights and whites (as suggested by the included instructions)
and the clothes looked great. I had initially washed a load with no additives, and the lighter colors
definitely looked dingy, although smelled great. Now, our homemade oxy-stuff tends to leave our line-dried
clothes on the crispy side, so I do add 1/4 c. white vinegar to the rinse cycle to fix this.

My favorite thing about the soap nuts so far is how wonderfully it washes wool sweaters. I used to use mild shampoo or castile soap, but the soap nuts perform so much better! And, incredibly, the wool smells so clean and not like wet dog! I soak the soap nuts in about a cup of hot water for 5-10 min, then add the "soak" as well as the soap nuts to the washing machine for the cold water delicate cycle. It works beautifully, nothing else needed.

I'll definitely continue using these. Per load they're cheaper than the commercial "free and clear" we used up until 2 yrs ago when we started making homemade laundry soap. Although we still like our homemade (at $ 0.04/load ain't nothin' cheaper!), the soap nuts are more convenient (nothing to make, easy to use), equally effective, and even more biodegradable.

I really do try to support products that are good for the environment. And Maggie's Soap Nuts I'm sure are excellent for the environment.

That being said, after using Maggie's for about 3 months, I have noticed our clothes are becoming dingy; it is especially noticeable with the whites. They still feel soft and smell clean. I will continue to use Maggie's Soap Nuts but will occasionally resort to using something to brighten our colors and whites.

I just want to be honest about the product I'm reviewing and not tell people it's just as good as a regular detergent for keeping whites and colors bright. Is it worth it to use Maggie's 95% of the time and resort to another product to brighten colors and whites? You bet.
