I keep reading about soap nuts, but I don't know what they are or where to get them. I want to learn!

You can order them of the web but I buy them from a local HFS down the street. Once you try them you'll love them!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:<br><br><a href="http://www.maggiespureland.com/" target="_blank">http://www.maggiespureland.com/</a>

These sound great!!!<br><br>
QUESTION:<br><br>
How many do you need for a med/large size load, and do you reuse them at all?

When I used the whole nuts with a bag I used 3-4 for large loads and reused them 3 times at least. I have gotten WAY more washes out of my nuts by boiling 6-7 in a large stockpot and then letting them "steep" until the color of strong tea. I pour about 1/4 cup in the wash and it does and AWESOME job. Even in cold. I use this "tea" for all laundry, I make an all purpose cleaner with it and vinegar, TTO-and wash the dog with it-it does wonders for the dander. LOVE these things!!!!
