The Choice website recently tested soap nuts and found that they were no more effective than washing your clothing in plain water. The website's review of soap nuts, which can be found here, scored them anoverall score of 42%.

Can you use vinegar with soap nuts? You can add a half cup of distilled vinegar or a scoop of oxygen bleach to your bag of Soap Nuts to brighten your fabrics. Always use the pre-soak option on your washer to optimize results. Using Soap Nuts with delicate fabrics is a greatchoice.

Does Soap nuts dry hair? Additionally, don't forget that soapnuts alone can be rather drying on hair (just as you wouldn't use shampoo without a conditioner), so apply a thin layer of oil as a mask the_night before you wash, or you can apply some oil on your scalp.

How do you dispose of soap nuts? As usual, wash with cold, warm, or hot water. After washing, remove bag and let dry. Dry clothes as usual. Soap Nuts may be re-used several times until the shells start to become soft and grey, and then they should be composted.
