When using soap nuts, there are a few things to remember:
Tip #1 – Temperature – Soap nuts need warm/hot water to activate. However, once activated, they will continue to work until discarded.
Tip #2 – Cold Water Wash – soak the nuts in the muslin bag in hot water first for about 3-4 minutes and then throw water and muslin bag of nuts into the laundry.
Tip #3 – Pretreating Stains – To pre-treat stains or soften water, add distilled white vinegar. Or pre-spot with either liquid soap nuts or another pre-spotter. Soap nuts can get stains out but do not stain themselves, despite being dark brown in color. Or, try adding a scoop of oxygen bleach to brighten fabrics. Be sure to separate whites from other colors.
Tip #4 – Use in A Controlled Applicator – Consider adding the solution to a spray bottle for controlled application and pre-spotting stain remover.
