Leaving the bag of soap nuts in the wash through the rinse cycle leaves just enough of the saponin on the fabric to soften your clothes as they dry. They will come out of the dryer smelling like they've just come off the line, and will be as soft or softer than if you were to use commercial chemical softeners. And you needn't worry about soap residue buildup or strong scents which often irritate your skin. Soap nuts are gentle, hypo allergenic, dye free, scent free, and don't leave any chemical residue that often causes irritation. Say goodbye to artificial fabric softeners!
