"I am a mother of 3 and have recently discovered the joys of Soap Nuts. So far I have been boiling up my soap nuts and freezing them as ice cubes, but I have been stingy with the ratio of nuts to water therefore my liquid has not been strong. Now that I have the ratio of 100 grams to 3 litres of water the liquid is dynamite.
I pour it into the glad freezer cube trays and just pop them out into an old ice cream container when ready. I make sure that I strain them finley first before I freeze the liquid. I blend the nuts with a stick blender and squeeze the pulp to get out every last drop.
I have made so far, all purpose cleaner spray, front loader liquid, caterpillar spray, dishwasher tablets using the liquid instead of vinegar, a floor cleaner solution and a shampoo, still trying to iron out the bumps.
I have cleaned out my home completely of all purchased cleaners, from the kitchen right through to my own toothpaste and deodorant.

"Spreading Soap Nut magic. Yes, I am besotted. Have got the hang of it. The best, cleanest, softest towels ever after soaking overnight. Can't wait to share it with my daughter next week end. Thanks for the measurement. Clever Grandpa suggested 7 y o Liam would enjoy making up the mix with us - he loves to experiment and will be fascinated that soap comes from little dry nut shells.
"I used these when I was in Germany in 2008 fantastic! So pleased I can now buy them in Australia."

"A cold water wash will use less energy because the water does not need to be heated. The extra half hour will not use as much energy as it would take to heat the water so there will be some saving of energy. "
"I have 5 boys so I have a lot of laundry. I usually wash their clothes 2 days (Monday and Thursday) a week. I have 5 baskets that we use for clean clothes only. As I get clean clothes out of the dryer, I fold them and put them in each boys' basket. Then the boys are responsible for putting their own clothes up--even the 2 1/2 year old! I usually wash my husband and my clothes once a week...towels too.Great giveaway! Thanks"
