As Natural As You Can Get Soap

I recently learned about soapnuts. Immediately interested, I looked at an online store and then thought to myself, "what exactly are soapnuts and can I grow them myself?" They are the dried berries of the Chinese Soapberry Tree and can be used in laundry and such. Unfortunately, they are not grown in my zone. So, I started looking into other plants that contain saponins. Soapwort is the most common. But how is it used? I came across this website.

Do any of my readers have any experience with saponin-containing plants and their uses?

I've seen them, but never used them. I'm curious too.
