Stacey Solomon raves about washing her sons’ clothes with ‘really cheap’ soap nuts to reduce eczema

Stacey Solomon has another nifty hack up her sleeve which, she believes, is a great way to prevent eczema.

The Loose Women star and mum-of-three has revealed that her top tip for laundry is actually to use reusable soap nuts which, if you didn’t already know, are shells which contain a cleaning agent which works like detergent.

Soap nuts are from the Soap Berry tree in the Himalayas and, it turns out, are a favourite of X-Factor finalist Stacey.

The nuts, which are actually berries, contain ‘Mother Nature’s detergent’ saponin and create a foam which removes dirt and keeps colours bright.

The star, 30, says the eco-friendly nuts, which cost £5.99 for a 300 gram bag, are a favourite of hers.

You can purchase them from Lakeland for £5.99, however they're currently unavailable.

With the bag you can do 100 washes and Stacey was quick to rave about this to her three million Instagram followers, after spending her first weekend in ten weeks with partner Joe Swash.

Stacey wrote: “LOADS of you asking me about my soap nuts – they're just a natural version of liquid tabs I think.

“I started using them because the boys have such sensitive skin I can only use really sensitive things to wash their clothes or they get eczema or rashes…

“But they work really well and they're really cheap (works out about 5p per wash) because they're re usable,” she continued.
