Soap Nuts: What Are They?
Looking for an all natural way to do laundry? If so, we think you will love Little Lamb Soap Nuts! So, how can these dried berries have the same power as your current laundry detergent? By placing these dried berries in hot water, they release natural surfactants (soaps) that not only clean your laundry, but have anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. All you have to do is put the nuts in a bag, set the washer to hot water, and you are ready to go! Best of all, they can be re-used 3-6 times, allowing you to hypoallergenic laundry option that is also amazing for your skin!
Soap Nuts: Overall
So far, I have to say I love using these soap nuts. They are super easy to use and leave my laundry clean without having to use any other detergents. For someone like me with sensitive skin, this is pretty amazing. The only thing that may seem odd is that they do smell a bit like vinegar. Being someone who has used soap nuts in the past, I know this is completely normal and the smell goes away after a wash or two. When the nuts are close to finished, they get a bit of a dark, dull look to them, or start to break apart in the bag. They seem to work like most of the other soap nuts have I tried previously, but what makes them truly stand out to me is that they are USDA organic. While you find a lot of companies that sell these berries, very few of them are actually organic (which is now making me wonder what they do to the berries drying them). So far though, we have had a great experience with these soap nuts. Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give Little Lamp Soap Nuts an A rating.

That’s very interesting. I’d be willing to try this. Right now I’m using a perfume and dye free laundry soap because I’m sensitive to chemicals. The name, lamb nuts, leaves a bit to be desired though.
laura rubenstein says
I have never heard of this before. The name is really catchy lol I’m not to sure I would try this though.
I have never heard of lamb nuts before!
Emily Endrizzi says
Wow! I have never heard of anything like this. Soap nuts?!? This is really amazing to me. I would love to give this a try. Anything that is more natural is a plus for me.
I have never heard of soap nuts before! My children both have very sensitive skin and I have been making an effort to rid my home of chemicals, so I think this is definitely worth trying. I have to agree with Lisa though, the name really leaves something to be desired.
Amber Ludwig says
My son and I have super super sensitive skin so we are always trying to naturalize our laundry!! I will definitely be trying these as they sound great!

Sandy Klocinski says
This is seriously the product I’ve been waiting for all my itchy life! I think this would be really fabulous for college students, or someone who doesn’t have a washer of their own; they don’t have to lug around a big container of laundry detergent. Awesome!

I never heard of soap nuts either; I like natural products so they sound good, I also like that they’re reusable.
denise low says
Wow never heard of the nut soap. I try to go more natural as we can. I would love to try this out. Thanks for the review.
Sue E says
What?? I know when I tell my hubby & others, they are going to retort back to me “WHAT ARE YOU NUTS?”
I am going to share this so I can tell the facts right.
I am really impressed & have sensitive skin also. I’ll have to fid a scent that doesn’t irritate my skin, because I do LOVE the smell of clean fresh clothes.
I think these are fantastic. I reviewed a similar product on my site and I’ll tell those soap nuts to a great job. Also more affordable and free of some unsavory ingredients in traditional detergent.
Holly Thomas says
This is actually pretty neat. I never would have thought something like this would get your clothes clean!
margaret franks duncan says
