Organic Soap Nuts (Seedless)
Soap nuts are actually berries and are the ONLY 100% NATURAL cleaner that grows in trees! They are rich in saponin - Natures Soap - a natural surfactant, reducing surface tension of the water to free dirt, grime and oils. It's amazing how well they clean clothes in the washing machine. You can even use them in the dishwasher and as a cleaning spray, shampoo, body wash, hand soap and more! Easy, natural, cheap, organic, reusable and compostable. Soap nuts make for a healthier home and planet. At 11 cents per wash they will save your hip pocket as well!
No suds, no residue and no hassle! So simple to use! Just place a small handful (about 5 full shells) in the wash bag and put it into the washing machine with clothes. Use warm or hot water for best results. Cold water can be used but it works best with soap nut laundry liquid. Once clothes are washed remove the bag and let the soap nuts dry between loads. You can use the same handful of soap nuts for about 4 or 5 washes depended on size of load and how heavily the clothes are soiled. The soap nut are ready to go onto the compost when they are dull and grey.
Below is an approximate number of washes per quantity of soap nuts:
Trial Bag - 5/6 washes
50gm - 30 washes
100gm - 60 washes
200gm - 120 washes
Pre-treating stains is still essential with soap nuts as they will not remove stains.
