The first time I ever used soap nuts for laundry detergent I was blown away. Then I learned you can also powder soap nuts to use as a homemade laundry detergent and my mind was blown again!
There is a small inconvenience to using soap nuts, a trade off I’m totally fine with. The inconvenience is that you have a little bag you need to keep track of between loads, mushy husks to throw out or compost, and you have to make sure the bag is going to dry out or it will mold between loads.
