HOW TO TELL WHEN YOUR SOAP NUTS ARE USED UP

Updated: Nov 3, 2023


EVER WONDER HOW TO TELL WHEN YOUR ECO NUTS SOAP NUTS ARE DONE? HERE’S A HANDY GUIDE!



There are a few ways to tell when the nuts are used up. A disintegrated soap nut won’t look like it did originally. It will be thin, light-colored and falling apart and will resemble floppy/broken peanut shells. The exact number of loads can vary based on water hardness, temperature, and machine type.

Here are some other ways to tell:

1. Smell the bag when wet. Saponin has a fruity odor when wet. When you take the bag out of the machine, smell it. If there is a slight fruity smell, the nuts are still good for more loads.

2. Run the bag under a faucet and squeeze. You’ll see little tiny suds if there is still soap.

3. Feel the nuts when wet. they will be slippery if there is still soap.

Below is a video that was made independently by blogger Amanda Hearn from Eco Friendly Family Blog showing how many loads she got with her Eco Nuts:
