making soap nuts liquid soap




i have been meaning to make some liquid soap from the soap nuts. you boil 1 cup is soap nuts with 4 cups of water for 20 minutes. what you get looks like cloudy tea. i recycled a bottle from laundry soap. now i can use this for hand washables.

You're certainly onto something -- soapnut liquid is by far the most convenient (and economical!) way to use soapnuts. If you find that boiling them for 20 minutes is stinkier than you'd like, consider using the LaundryTree recipe instead:
