Somehow we’ve got to get clean. We must clean our hair, our hands, and our bodies. We have to wash our clothes, our bed sheets, and our carpets. Daily, we wash dishes, pots, pans, and cutlery. At the root of nearly all of these endeavors, we find soap.Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much investigation into soap to learn that much of what is available on the market is not animal-friendly. Not only do many big-name laundry detergents come from companies that test their products on animals, but many also include fats made from animal tallow. This is all without considering the fact that there are many compounds like parabens and phthalates that are neither good for people nor animals.There are lots of DIY solutions to help with this issue: Recipes for all-natural laundry detergents, homemade body washes, easy hand cleaners, and even dish soap for the kitchen. By all means, these are great, but they are still largely reliant on buying ready-made castile soap. That can all change with a fruit known as the soap nut.
