How to tell when your eco nuts are used up

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’s 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.
