Ever heard of soap nuts?

Have you guys ever used soap nuts to clean your laundry? Do they actually work? I find the idea intriguing from both an environmental and economical standpoint. I don't know anyone who uses them though.

See I tend to think there's a reason for that. Soap nuts might work okay, but I bet if they worked as well as commercial soap then everyone would use them. Our clothing gets pretty grubby because of our lifestyle and work. We're outside sweating, we're digging in the dirt on our knees, and we're taking care of our critters, and so far, Tide does the best at removing stains and odors in my experience.

I have never heard of them. I'm not the one who does laundry though. I checked with my wife and she said she has heard of them but won't try them. She uses Tide or Perisil.
