Want a laundry cleaner that's closer to nature? Eco Nuts are the answer. These little organic berries grow in the Himalayas and naturally produce a soap called saponin that penetrates fibers.

Great for people with sensitive skin, these soap nuts don't suds up like detergents with artificial foaming agents, but clean well just the same. Eco Nuts are deseeded and treated with a nontoxic sanitizing treatment before packaging to kill any harmful bacteria that could be lingering on the berries.; $3.99 for 10 loads, $34.95 for 360 loads
