  2. I have wondered what soap nuts were. I live at camp all summer (April-Oct) and don't have a washer. I'm going to try them. But tell me, what are scent beads, and where did you get them? I am really enjoying your blog!

      I am using the Downy unstoppable scent beads. The instructions call for a cap full - I use maybe 8-12 little beads. They do absolutely nothing but impart a pleasant scent.

      If you are going to be using the soapnuts without a washing machine be sure to boil the water to soak them in to get the most content from them. You won't get a lather and bubbles like you get with a commericial detergent, and you'll want to add something like Borax to your whites.

      Have a great day!
