Soap Nuts - natures soap (ok for people with nut allergies as this are actually fruit)

Soap nuts are dried fruit berries that fall from the soapberry tree (Sapindus Mukorossi) found in Northern India and Nepal. Their outer shells contain saponin, which creates a natural soap when agitated in water - use them in place of traditional detergents and fabric softeners. Works well with HE washers and okay for those with nut allergies since it's fruit (soap nuts close to olives as far as human sensitivity to them). They effectively clean, soften and remove odors from your laundry - naturally! They have been used for centuries as a natural way to clean laundry. It is fantastic for people with sensitive skin, babies clothes, and cloth diapers! No need to use fabric softener full of chemicals. This soap already has natural fabric softeners in it! No polluting the water supply with toxic chemicals. 

Our soap nuts are USDA and Oregon Tilth certified organic.

The soap nuts can be reused from 4-6 and even up to 9 times before all of the saponin is released! After use compost the soap nuts - they are biodegradable.

Place Soap Nuts in the small muslin bag (like the one that came with your purchase), tie it closed, and throw it into the drum of your washing machine along with your articles of clothing that need washing. You can reuse this batch for 4 or 5 loads of laundry. The soap nuts will be mushy and gray when they need to be composted. Soap nuts are perfect for HE and front load washers as they do not create many suds! Just remember to put whole soap nuts in the drum of the machine. Soap nuts liquid can go in the detergent drawer.

You can also make liquid detergents and other cleaners from Soap Nuts (recipes coming soon)!
