Soap's what?! Yes soap nuts are nature's original detergents and the ultimate 100% natural laundry detergent and cleanser! It will leave your everyday laundry clean and fresh. Free of any synthetic chemicals, these soap nuts are gentle on all kinds of laundry and delicate fabrics. Each nut can last up to 6 wash cycles!
Hypoallergenic, fragrance free and biodegradable.
Grown on Sapindus trees, the Soap Nut is a fruit that is valued for its cleansing purposes since ancient times. When its dried pulp comes in contact with water, it releases saponin, a natural cleanser that creates mild suds to wash out dirt and stains from your laundry and household.
Soap Nuts are actually a berry (a fruit!) related to the lychee and are not nuts at all. They are nut allergy safe.
Our organic soap nuts are grown in the Himalayas.
Laundry: Pop 4-6 nuts into the cotton wash bag provided and throw it in with your clothes into the washing machine. Wash at a temperature of 30 degrees.
Cleaning Liquid: Put around 10 nuts in 1 litre of water and boil it for 20 minutes for their natural detergent to be released. This cleaning liquid can be used as a base for liquid laundry detergent and other cleansers.
Reuse: You can reuse the nuts! Gently squeeze the still wet Soap Nuts bag after doing a load of laundry: if you see and feel some suds, you can do another load with them. Each batch of nuts can be reused at least 3 times before it loses its sudsy powers.
Strong Stains: Rub washing soda or baking soda directly onto the affected spot and let it absorb the powder for an hour before washing the fabric in the washing machine. You can also use our Stain Remover Stick. Soap Nuts are just for general cleaning and not the most effective on stains!
