I’m not really sure why laundry is one of the most loathed chores.
Maybe it’s because there are too many steps involved: sort, wash, dry, fold, put away, repeat.
Possibly it’s because laundry is never-ending. It’s not like a mown lawn or vacuumed rug where you can see a “finished” project for a day or two. Invariably, as soon as you think you’re finished with laundry, everyone changes clothes and you’re right back where you started.
Since school began, and we’re getting back into a routine, laundry seems to have tripled: gym uniforms, hockey clothes, soccer clothes, school clothes, ugh. Finally, though, I am delegating most of the laundry steps this year.
It’s irrelevant that my son still isn’t tall enough to pour detergent into the front load washer, with the soap nuts he just throws the bag right in to the machine (of course practicing some kind of new “pitch” to do so- who says chores can’t be fun?!).
What are these time-saving, chore-delegating, earth & allergy friendly soap-nuts I speak of? Actually, they aren’t nuts, but dried fruit berries from the soapberry tree (Sapindus Mukorossi) found in Nepal and India. Its outer shell contains saponin, which creates a natural soap in water. Not only do they eliminate odors from dirty clothes (goodbye sweat-wicking material stink!), they’re also the perfect laundry alternative for those with eczema, allergies, or anyone wanting to avoid harsh detergent chemicals.
Save the marigolds for the garden and the green tea for your mug; your clean laundry doesn’t need (often artificial & toxic) fragrances. Yoreganics Soap Nuts leave clothes just plain clean.
If you need added incentive… they’re hypoallergenic, biodegradable, antimicrobial, vegan, gluten-free, fragrance free, and cruelty free.
