I happened to come across a little blurb today on soap nuts in a magazine. As I've said before, I'm a little slow on the uptake. For those of you who are still in the dark as I was, soap nuts are dried berries from several trees and shrubs in the genus Sapindus. The berries contain saponins which act as a natural detergent. I'm always looking for greener alternatives to chemically laden products. I've ordered a sample pack here. Once I try them I'll let you all know what I think.
