Am so tempted. Was just checking out a website they're sold on and you can get 1kg for $35 which is about 1 - 2 YEARS worth of washing?!?!?
I'm nervous though - do they really do the trick? will I be disappointed with my clothes not smelling powdery fresh? How are they with getting smells out e.g. Food/dirt smells?

Have a look at a website dailybabybuys.com.au they come up on specials all the time on there. A friend often uses them and swears by them. She told me that you get about 6 loads out of one lot of nuts. She hasnt had to use napisan or anything since she changed over to them. You can use them for cleaning around the house too. I'm going to buy a bag next time they come on special just to try them.

I use them just to wash my girls clothes. I use it in a liquid form by cooking the nuts for 30 mins on the stove and using 3 or so tbs in a wash.
Clothes come out clean and soft, no fragrance which is what I like.
Stainwise I must say they are ok. I don't really mind about stains so I generally don't fuss too much about them but long term stains are not removed by the nuts.

Buy them directly from pure revolution yourself instead of DBB - works out cheaper sometimes as they offer free shipping and DBB are a rip off shipping wise.

I'm not sold on them - have used them a dozen times but not overly impressed ... But then I only use cold wash as we don't have hot water in the laundry ... I've heard they work better in a warm/hot wash ...

I used them for a while. They do leave clothes feeling very soft, but I had bits of nuts in the machine leftover for ages and it eventually went all over the clothes. I think if I were to use them again I'd definitely make a liquid out of them and send them through a sieve!
They didn't get rid of the slight funk under DP's underarms of shirts but funnily enough they have been the best by far at getting the ammonia smell out of MCNs that I have tried. They leave nappies beautifully soft.

Thanks everyone for your replies! I'm still not 100% sold - I really am a fan of clothes having a slight fragrance to them. Can you put a drop or two of essential oil in the wash just for the smell?
There are also little mesh bags that come with the nuts that you pop them into while washing - that would stop the shells from clogging up your machine right?

I had the mesh bags and that's how I ended up with bits of nut all over my clothes. Took weeks to stop coming out in the wash even after I'd given up on them.
You can put essential oils on the nuts
