I recently started using soapnuts for my laundry, dishwasher & general cleaning. Great for people, the environment & eliminating several products for one.
Soap Nuts are actually berries. They are also good for people with allergies & anti-microbial (good for the septic system). I make a liquid with mine for the laundry & scent it with lavender & orange essential oil
I get mine from mountainroseherbs.com
