"These are a hit!"
COMMENTS:  I did some research on soap nuts before buying these, then tested them...and had my friends test them. Everyone was amazed that first, this is a thing they'd never heard of, and second, that they really work. We all use about 5 or 6 soap nuts in a muslin bag and toss it in the wash. Each bunch seems to last about 4 washes. I bagged them up and added them to my shop. There was instant interested and they started selling. Zero plastic, eco-friendly, non-toxic, and zero waste is becoming increasingly important to lots of folks. I'm happy to be able to offer this option.

"I so wanted to love these"
COMMENTS:  From what I've heard you just put a few in a muslin bag toss in washer and bamm soapy bubbles that wash your clothes and can be dried and reused several times...well, I did that but got a few bubbles at first and that was it! Going to try the soaking in water overnight method from one of the reviews and hope for a different outcome.

"My new favorite thing in life!!!!"
COMMENTS:  OMG, these things are amazing! I did some extensive searching online to find uses for these and was fairly disappointed that most everything I found was the same. Basic instructions on washing clothes, or making a liquid wash with these nuts and water. So I went to work experimenting with the pound I bought, and after several batches I’ve learned how to make the most amazing, thick and creamy bubbly wash, good for so many purposes! I did add preservative, as these will spoil after a few days without it. The sites I searched didn’t get very creative (or use preservatives), but I saw potential in these and I was right! I made half a gallon of “ugly bubbles” bubble bath (it’s an ugly brownish color. Instead of trying to fight it with color I just decided to lean into it, lol) it only took 30 nuts for half a gallon! It easily scented with citrus essential oils and I used the max recommended for the preserv. For water bases and its been a month and things still look good, though i’ve Done no actual testing as this’s is all still experimentation. I cooked the nuts in half distilled water, half aloe juice (for this batch). I wish we could post photos, because this method produces a dark opaque liquid, much ,more concentrated than just soaking the nuts. Anyway, buy them and try them, you wont regret it! Best bargain on the website!!!

"Soap Nut"
COMMENTS:  Soap nut (Reetha) is a natural soap. you can grind it and throw the seeds away. It is great product for wool cloths and is cloths friendly. I Grew up watching my mom and grand mom using it for wool and colored cloths and for hair wash. I would highly recommend it. I am glad that it is being introduced by WSP. I will be able to buy in bulk now. Use: Can be soaked in hot water and strained the soap water to use it and follow the WSP instructions.
