Simply place a few of these amazing soap nuts (berries) into the small wash bag and throw them in with your washing. They will leave your laundry clean and fresh for around 6 washes, with no need for any other cleaners or fabric softeners. At around 10 cents per wash, why would you use anything else?
Soap Nuts are 100%:
- Pure and natural
- Non-allergenic (not a nut, really a berry)
- Antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal
- Wild harvested (organic)
- Beneficial to greywater and septic systems
- Not tested on animals
- Easy to use and most importantly, effective
Soap Nuts are the seed pod of a macadamia-sized berry from the Sapindus Mukorossi or Soap Nut tree, which is cracked open and dried in the sun, producing a sticky, dark golden shell. These shells (known as 'soapnuts') can be placed into your washing machine instead of detergent and fabric softener, and will leave your clothes clean, soft and without scent.
The pods contain a very high percentage of saponins (Mother Nature's soap), a surfactant which removes dirt and oils from clothing when contacted with water. Soap Nuts can also be boiled into a liquid concentrate and used as a general purpose cleaner, shampoo, hand soap... the list is long and growing.
