 Simply place a few of these amazing soap nuts into a small Wash bag and throw them in with your washing. They will leave your laundry clean and fresh for around 6 washes, no need for any other cleansers or fabric softeners. At around 10 cents per wash, why would you use anything else?

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.

What can I use them for?

Well, just about everything. As a detergent, a personal cleanser and shampoo, a general purpose cleaner, car wash, pet wash, vegetable wash, carpet and upholstery cleaner...

Soap Nuts are most commonly used as a laundry detergent. They are used instead of chemical detergents and fabric softeners. Soap Nut shells are used on their own in a cotton bag or an old sock tied at the top and put into the machine with your clothes. They do not need to be removed during the rinse cycle as there is no harmful or irritating residue as is left over from normal detergents. The surfactants in the nuts cleans and softens your laundry in one economic and environmentally friendly swoop!
