- 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.
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.
