Fridays are my laundry catch up days and I realized as soon as I started on the second load that we were out of detergent. Then I remembered I had some laundry soap nuts in my swag bag from last weekend’s BlissDom conference. So I got them out, read the instructions, and tossed them into the small cloth bag to be thrown in with the washload.
The hubby called as I was figuring out the soap nuts.
“Hold on I’m trying to get these nuts in the bag.”
“I’m trying to get these soap nuts in the bag.”
What are soap nuts?
“You use them instead of detergent. They’re actually berries from India.”
Later my mom called and I told her I was using soap nuts.
How do you know they’re working? Do they suds up?
“Well, you squeeze them and this white foamy stuff comes out and when that runs out you compost them.”
And that pretty much sums up my Friday. Squeezing nuts all in the name of clean clothes.
