Soap Nut Update...
You already know how much I love Maggie's Soap Nuts. After I had boiled the used nuts for "Nut Juice", I found there was still plenty of life left in these little nuts. The liquid hand soap didn't work as well as I had hoped, so I took it another step further. I bought some mesh fabric and made my own soap nut "sachet". There are many uses for this little "soap sachet". From washing dishes (I still use dish soap), to using as a body wash exfoliator. I love using it as a dish washing sponge. Works wonders AND I'm not purchasing a plastic sponge anymore! I used red thread to sew the top together, making it easy to find and rip out, and then replace the used nuts. Ultimate reusing! The life of a soap nut in my house: washing laundry, making a tea from the used laundry nuts (my own spray cleaner), then putting them in my new mesh "sachets". I can't tell you how much I love this little soap nut!
