Soapnuts

Soap berries grow in the wild in the Himalayas and are cracked open and dried in the sun, producing a 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. If you want your clothes to have a scent you use need to add 4 to 6 drops of essential oil (fragrance of your choice) to 10 mls of water and add it to the fabric softener section in the detergent tray. 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. Soapnuts can be placed in the net provided or socking and tied and put in the cutlery holder in the dishwasher with vinegar as a rinse aid to clean the dishes. Soapnuts can also be boiled into a liquid concentrate and used as a general purpose cleaner, shampoo, hand soap, liquid clothes and dishes detergent to just name a few uses. Once they lose their sticky feeling boil them up to make the concentrate liquid and then compost the left over shells.

Contents - You will receive a wash net(s) with your purchase of soap nuts or you can use an old stocking or one of the odd socks you end up with. We do not provide bags that most other companies do due to  many of them being made in sweat shops in India by young children.

Instructions and ideas on using Soapnuts will be included.
