Studies have found that the most common pollutant found in the human bloodstream is laundry detergent. Even from a very young age we are exposed to high levels of laundry detergent residue.
To avoid over exposure to detergent pollutants, try soap nuts. Soap nuts, one of the most fun alternatives to standard detergents, give you the clean you need without the yucky left overs.
Unlike most alternative laundry cleaners, soap nuts are actually soap! That’s right, soap nuts are the dried berries of the soap nut tree.
These little berries contain saponins, which create a sudsy lather that washes away dirt without leaving behind any chemical residue.
Soap nuts are reused multiple times until they turn mushy and gray, and then they are easily composted.
